As a busy student, keeping your phone charged on the go is important, but not every class is equipped with outlets that will allow you to charge your mobile device during lectures and laboratories, and coffee shops may only have a limited number of outlets. Fortunately, there are of number of products to keep your phone charged no matter where you are located:
A small portable battery can give you a bit of extra juice without taking up much space in your backpack. Look for a battery that charges quickly, holds charge well, and is powerful enough to completely, or almost completely, recharge your mobile device.
Portable Power Pack:
These tend to be a bit more powerful, and expensive, than a typical portable battery. A power pack is typically great at giving your phone a quick charge and holding large amounts of juice for extended periods of time. In some cases, a portable power pack will also require less time to recharge than a standard battery and will be able to charge a greater variety of items. While many portable power packs can get a bit bulky, some of the newer models can easily fit into a backpack or messenger back.
Backpack Portable Charger:
If you need some serious power, or need to keep a laptop or tablet charged throughout the day as well, a backpack with a built-in charger is ideal. These backpacks function like any normal backpack, but will also include a small compartment with a charger and ports that will allow you to connect your mobile device.
When choosing between charging varieties, it is important to keep your demands at the forefront. If you are always on the go, a power pack or a backpack charger is ideal. If, however, you have ample time for a recharge at least once a day, a battery can be sufficient.
