Keep the power with these battery packs

Business Technology | June 13, 2013

Planning a getaway? Going to bring your laptop, smartphone or tablet with you? Then you need to invest in an external battery pack. These portable units let you plug nearly any device in them. The battery pack charges them when they start running out of juice. But which external battery packs work best? The tech site Lifehacker recently asked its readers to rate the top battery packs. Here’s their three favorites.

Anker Astro

Anker produces three solid external battery packs in its Astro line, the 3E, 4E and Pro. All three of these devices ranked high among Lifehacker readers, mainly for the powerful charges they furnish. Readers also enjoy the Astro line’s small sizes and even smaller price tags.

New Trent

The iCarrier and iGeek battery packs from manufacturer New Trent also score points for portability as well as the powerful charges they provide. These units, too, are reasonably priced. One special feature? The indicator light that quickly tells you how much charge your New Trent unit still holds. That way, you’ll never be surprised as you travel.

Energizer XP

Energizer is a big name in batteries, so it is little surprise that its XP series of external battery packs ranks high among Lifehacker readers. One of the primary selling points? These units come with a wide selection of tips and cables that allow you to charge just about any phone available, even older models.
