Travel Tip 015/100: Bring a Battery Pack

Bring a Battery Pack

Bring a battery pack, you never know if you’re flight is going to be delayed, or when you’ll catch the sun setting from the back of a tram!

I thought it was very geeky of me and my colleagues to carry one around at my first conference, but as soon as we arrived in Austin, Texas for SXSW it became a necessity. Now, I carry one around with me when I head out to a conference, travel or when I know I’ll be sightseeing all day long.

It also charges other USB compatible devices like your tablet, Kindle, mp3 player, game controller, etc. And this particular battery pack, Anker PowerCore 10000 Portable Charger can charge my iPhone 6s between 3-4x before I need to recharge the pack.

portable battery pack is also good for:

  • Delayed flights
  • Long journeys (outlets aren’t available on most budget airlines or train travel)
  • Taking photos
  • Staying in hostels
  • Commuting
  • Backpacking/Camping trips
  • Pokémon Hunting
