The biggest problem facing portable electronic devices when you’re out and about is battery life. It doesn’t matter how big and powerful your iPhone or MacBook is; it’s going to need a quick charge every now and then.
Apple’s done a fantastic job improving the battery life on its new devices, especially the new MacBooks with the M1 chip. That being said, sooner or later, you’re going to need to charge your MacBook, and sometimes there won’t be anywhere to do so.
Fortunately, you can always rely on a power bank. These external backup batteries are perfect for people on the go that don’t have time to stop charging their devices.
Whether you’ll be camping or commuting, you’ll want a power bank handy.
