Let’s face it, sometimes we rely on our phones a little more than we should. Ever since the inception of the “smart phone” we’ve used our phones for everything. They are our camera, journal, social media machine and sometimes we even use them to make phone calls. We use them for so much from Facebook to Instagram to Snapchat that it seems like they run out of gas way before we do. The best way to combat a constantly drained battery is by purchasing a backup battery pack. There are so many great ones available that we really have no excuse when our battery runs out. That is, even if we spent the whole afternoon playing Super Mario Run.
This lithium-ion-based power pack is ridiculously fast with three USB ports pumping out a combined 5.5A output. Just plug your decide in and get that juice. You can charge an iPhone 7 or Galaxy s7 (or almost any other smart-phone) about ten times before you need to recharge it. It contains something called “iSmart Technology” that is designed to automatically determine the best possible charging current for each device plugged in. You’re guaranteed a fast charge every time.$53
The SunJack only takes seven hours to reach a full charge using DC or twenty-three hours with a USB.

It has three outputs so you can charge all three of your devices at the same time and it weighs less than two pounds to guarantee comfort and mobility. It even comes with a carrying case. That’s pretty awesome.$100
