If you travel often for work, you know how frustrating it can be to keep your electronic devices alive. And more likely than not, it’s not as if you can just not use them, as you’re most likely using them to keep in touch with the office, contact clients for meetings, check emails, and navigate the city you’re in. And since you’re likely on the go most of the day, waiting to get back to your hotel room is often not an option. A portable charger is the solution to this conundrum. Here are a few examples of portable chargers and why you need one.
Dockable Battery Packs
These devices come with a convenient dock for charging, giving them the ability to then provide up to two full charges for your device, whether it be a smartphone, tablet or laptop. These are perfect for the flight to and from your destination, especially if the airline does not provide outlets. They can also be used on-the-go, but are slightly too large to fit into most pockets.
These devices come in all shapes and sizes, and can carry enough power for anywhere between three to seven charges for your smartphone, laptop or tablet. These are great if you spend long periods away from your hotel room or any available outlets, such as long drives from the airport, multi-day meetings or conferences, or a team-building activity outdoors.
Portable Power Pack
A portable power pack is similar to a wireless charging pad in terms of its size, but has the added convenience of fitting into your pocket along with your smartphone since it doesn’t need an outlet. Since they’re small, they usually only have enough power for one full charge, and they’re designed specifically for smartphones and tablets, not laptops. Still, this device is probably the most convenient for on-the-go charging since it doesn’t take up much space.
