Today I am talking about a little gadget that I can’t live without. It’s the Anker portable charger. As the name suggests it is a small battery pack that allows you to charge your phone or any other device on the go.
I have an iPhone 5S and I love it. However, the battery life is not the best. If I use it throughout the day, listening to music, checking Facebook or Instagram and sending a few text messages or emails, the battery won’t last until the end of the day.
About three months ago I did some research. I found many options in the portable charger department. I didn’t want something too big; I wanted something small and light that I could slip into my purse. Looking on Amazon I found the Anker Astro mini charger.
It is shaped like a little tube, not much bigger than a lipstick. It has a capacity of 3000mAh and has great reviews online. I also appreciated the fact that it comes in more than one color.
I have been using this portable charger for about three months, and I can say I am very happy with it. When it’s fully charged, it will do one full charge of my phone and about another half charge. In my case that was exactly what I was looking for. It takes a little while to charge the Anker Astro mini; I usually plug it over night so I don’t have to worry about it. It’s very easy to charge with a micro USB cable that is included when you buy it.
If you are like me and tend to use your phone a lot throughout the day and run out of battery, I would definitely recommend you buy one of these portable chargers. It’s so small it fits everywhere.
Do you have a portable charger? Which one do you have or have you heard of?
