Sometimes I just don't need to carry a big battery with me, but I know my 1 year old iPhone battery can't be trusted. If I want to be sure I can call a ride home, after a full day out and about, I bring Anker's lipstick battery with me.

Charging this once and dropping it into my jacket pocket tends to get bail me out of trouble a couple times a month.
