I rely on my phone for a 100% of my photos and video and while very convenient, it is also a really quick way to drain my phone battery.
It is not a secret that smart phones have revolutionize the way people take and share their photos and videos, and it is also no secret that because of all we do with our phones on a daily basis, that the batteries tend to last not nearly long enough.
The battery draining is not a big deal as long as you have a way to charge your phone, so I keep a couple of phone chargers around the house and one in my car of course.
The real challenge is to keep your phone charged when you do not have access to a power source that will allow you to keep your phone charge and running.
Charging on the go
One of the very first things I do when I know I am going to be traveling is charge my personal travel power bank.
There are tons of these handy devices in the market but not all of them perform the same and I am very specific when it comes to my power bank and want to make sure it has certain features.
I want my power bank to be small in size but without lacking the power necessary to recharge my smart phone.
I also want my power bank to charge quickly.
I need my phone charged and I need it charged fast! It is a fact that not all power banks have the capability to charge your phone as quick as you might want it. So a power bank with fast charging is what you really need.
Fast power bank charging
Because you need your power bank to be up and running when you need it, only a fast charging power bank is ideal.
Let’s be honest while having the extra power source is a must, we can do without extra weight or bulkiness, so lightweight and compact are two of the features I look for whenever I am in the market for a power bank.
Some power banks are specifically designed for iPhones and some others have been designed for Android users like me. While my phone is a Samsung (Android), I also own an iPod that I like to bring along when I travel and do not want to bring different cables.
I have been using MyCharge HubMax and love it. It has all the features I mentioned before and then some. The rechargeable 10050mAh portable charger can charge smart phones and tablets a lot faster than any other portable power bank I have tried and yes, it has different prongs for different devices!
Another product that I had no idea I needed until I had it and decided I can’t live without is the PowerGear Sport.
A protective Charging Case for Wearables…Yes, there is such a thing and it works wonderfully.
Sleek design case for your fitbit and a selection of other wearables that allows you to keep your tracker protected when not in use while charging your unit.
You can also store your replacement band so all your gear is in one place and easy to reach…Did I mention it is also really cute?
Lightweight and easy to bring anywhere you go, this can be easily stored in a carryon or backpack when you are one the go.
The good news? It is one sale right now for only $19.99!

I like the hub max. A few years back we had a major storm and lost power for 2 weeks. The shelter let you charge one device but that was all. I could have charged this up and then used it to charge our phones and laptop.
I would like to try the Simple Charge that can clip on my keychain. I’ve been out shopping and realized that my phone needs charging. This is a simple and easy solution. And you can’t beat the small size so it’s easy to carry. A good product.

“WOW” I need this
My son is in college and then works at night. I can never get a hold of him because his devices are always dead. I think this just might be the ticket. https://mycharge.com/collections/tablets/products/razorxtra
I would like to try the HubMini because it can easily fit in a pocket. I wish I would have had a portable charger on my last vacation. I couldn’t take anymore pics on my phone because the battery died.
AdventureMax looks like the best of all the Rechargeable portable chargers. Its
10500mAh of power and 2 USB ports, any device up to six times. Its pretty large
Our electricity goes out fairly often- and is usually off at least 2-6 hours. Having a backup battery really helps to insure we can use our cell phones.
The hub mini would also be great to have. I’d love this power bank too.
I like their AdventureUltra charger. That one would have the power to help recharge my laptop when I am out. I have thought about starting to vlog, and if I do, I really need my laptop to have more “juice” to go!
I think the Power Extend 3 would be a great item to have. Sometimes you need to change several items at once and this would be great for that.
I like the Style Power Watercolor. I could really use one of these. The last one I had, my kids abducted and have not recovered from the recesses of their rooms.
I would love to have the AdventureMax. I could really have used this on our last trip from MS to ME when both of our phones died and we could not recharged them until we checked into a hotel.

I would probably run our Bluetooth speaker for quite awhile. Gotta have music on a camping trip!

The AdventureMax would be handy. Some extended storm-related power outages would make this valuable.
this would be so handy when I am out and about taking pictures

I would also like to try the wireless Earbuds. They would be great for traveling.
They’re called power gear sound.

I also like the AdventureUltra that looks awesome! They have so many great choices. I wish I had had one of these when we went on vacation.
I’d like the HubMax that will work with my iPad. We actually used a power bank when we lost power during Hurricane Irma and it was a lifesaver.
I like the adventure line that they have.My husband and i do a lot of fishing so that would come in handy.

This would be great to win my son needs it, his phone goes dead quickly
I like their product variety. I would like their Style Power Black Dot. It is compact and fits in your pocket.
