Want a surprise? Battery life on my smartphone sucks. I'm always looking for small, simple external packs that last. For $20 the Anker Astro-Mini gets the job done!
This lipstick sized battery with a USB port takes about 2 hours to charge fully. The device offers a bit more than one full charge for an iPhone 5. Less than 1 full charge for an iPad Mini. It is simple and I rarely forget to carry it with me when traveling. Performance has been fine for approximately 50 charges. Anker also offers an 18 month "worry free" guarantee, but I haven't had any reason to contemplate needing a replacement.
You'll need your own specific cable to charge your device (unless you take Micro USB, which is included,) but thats about it. I'm happy to have it.

And they’re not alone. If your company or the one you’d like to work for wrangles data (and who doesn’t?), they’re going to need someone with a […]
