Our phones do much more than call and text. They allow us to check our email on the go, play music during a long drive, watch movies on plane trips, look up any question, and play games on bus rides. But all these functions drain the battery, and there’s nothing worse than being stuck with a dead phone when you need it most. These products make it easier than ever to charge your phone.
