I am currently obsessed with power banks because not only are they useful, but they are so convenient and they sure cut down on frustration. As a parent I worry if my daughter is out at night and her phone is dead, so we make sure there is one in the car when she goes out so if she needs to charge her phone, it’s available and she doesn’t have to sit in the car while it charges, she can just throw it in her purse. They can also be put in backpacks if you are out on a hike to ensure you can stay connected in case of emergency. We even use them around the house a great deal because the kids will often just sit and use them in a chair if an electrical outlet is not nearby. They charge phones fast and will also charge pretty well anything that can be charged or run off of a USB port.
Power banks aren’t all that expensive and the range in price is generally related to how much power it can store. Choose smaller ones if they won’t be used often or only by one person, or choose bigger ones for family road trips so everyone can get a charge out of the same powerbank. These are also great if your power goes out, so you won’t worry about your phone dying. This sized power bank will charge your iPhone 3-4 times before it needs to be recharged. It also has 4 lights on it showing how much charge is available with each light representing approx 25% power.
