Find out the best portable power bank chargers for travel. I’m addicted to mine and don’t know how I’ve ever traveled without one!
Portable Chargers: Why Do I Need One?
Smartphones have quickly replaced the need for several gadgets and most people seem to have their phone permanently attached to their hand.
I use my unlocked Samsung Note 3 (great for blogging!) for everything: as a camera with its 15 megapixel resolution, an MP3 player to replace my iPod; an eReader using Amazon’s free kindle app; and well occasionally as an international phone, too.
Having easy access to a charger is more important than ever and there are tons of portable chargers on the market there to make your life easier. I am currently using the Pebble, which has two USB ports, and is palm sized.
It was a must for a weekend camping at BlogStock or 6 days at Glastonbury
Aside from camping it’s also perfect for long travel days when I’m on planes, trains, or buses and my phone is my main form of entertainment. A 14 hour flight? No problem.
Since I use it as a camera, it’s also great to get that instant charge so I can continue taking sightseeing photos. It’s a must at an amusement park when you’re in long lines all day, too.
Even though my Samsung Note 3 guzzlers energy I still get two full charges out of my Pebble. The only thing I dislike is that it’s a bit heavy.
