A smartphone with a dead battery is a useless smartphone. But, of course, there never seems to be a power outlet around when you really need one.

This particular power bank also has both a USB-A and a USB-C port, meaning you can charge up to two devices simultaneously. Don’t carry two smartphones around? You can charge up your friends’ devices in a pinch.
