Ever since my last article on apps that can extend the battery life of your Android device, I’ve received a lot of requests asking me to do a blog post on portable battery solutions. Although I myself have never used any external solutions, there happen to some really good ones on the market. I’m going to list a few here; I suggest you do your own research on these before ordering them.

Mophie – Battery Phone Cases

If you’re a smartphone user, chances are at some point you might have seen or heard about Mophie – the battery phone case that can boost your battery by about 80%. It’s basically an external battery in the form of a phone case that both helps boost your battery life and also provides some protection for your phone.

Compatible Devices: iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy Phone, Samsung Tablet

Extra Battery

This one’s probably the easiest or the clumsiest one, depending on how you look at it. Just buy an extra battery if you own an Android Device .i.e. Samsung Galaxy. Make sure to charge this battery on a regular basis and carry the battery with you in your purse or bag.

Caution: Use a Ziploc bag to store this extra battery in. Do not leave the battery as is in your purse or bag – it might start leaking toxic chemicals.

EasyAcc® iChoc 5000mAh Ultra Slim Dual Port USB Fast Charging Portable Battery Charger

This is another convenient way to charge your phone when you don’t have access to a phone charger/power outlet. It’s basically a portable battery with a USB cord. You just hook your smartphone to this portable device and it will charge within no time.

Compatible Devices: iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy Phone, Samsung Tablet

For now, these three solutions will suffice. Make sure to bookmark this page and check back every once in a while. I’ll make sure to update this list on a regular basis.
