Once upon a time, it seemed like everybody was buying battery cases to get the extra juice they needed for their phone to make it through the day. However, the big problem with a battery case is that it makes your phone bulky and heavy -- and some cases hurt wireless reception, too. With phones growing larger and larger, the battery case just doesn't always make as much sense as it once did. In my opinion, an external battery pack is the way to go.Wireless Charger on car
To that end, I've rounded up the best compact batteries, with an emphasis on Android devices. Though they cost more, I personally like batteries that have an integrated USB-C output built into them so I don't have to worry about carrying around a charging cable. (The models with built-in USB-C cables should also work for iPad Pro models.) But I've also included some budget picks for those who want to spend as little as possible. And, while we have a separate power bank roundup for iPhones, anything here without an integrated USB-C cable will work perfectly well with an iPhone (and non-Pro iPad models), so long as you provide the Lightning cable.
Mophie's PowerStation Plus USB-C lists for $80 but can be had for around $45 online for the version that houses a 6,040-mAh battery (pictured here). With the USB-out port, you can charge two devices simultaneously.
Like the PhoneSuit Journey, the $50 Ventev Powercell 6010 Plus has integrated folding prongs and an integrated USB-C cable. It houses a 6,000-mAh battery, and there's also a standard USB port so you can charge other devices with an extra cable.
