Phone battery capacities are finally on the rise again. Gone are the days of the “thinnest phone in the world”, manufacturers are finally listening to buyers who want to be able to use their phones un-tethered from a plug! Regardless of this, “all day battery” still seems to be just out of reach (dependent on your usage). That’s where power banks come in handy. Large capacity, portable batteries capable of charging your phone multiple times, keeping you on-the-go. Finally, I’ve managed to get my hands on a power bank that doesn’t require me to carry around an extra cable, just to keep it charged up. The AUKEY PB-N36 is a portable battery pack, containing 20,000mAh of battery inside it, can be charged by either a Micro-USB or a Lightning cable!

If you’re like me and like to be prepared – here are some great ideas/offers for the tech-loving woman in your life!
The PowerCore 20000 was Anker’s first power bank to include Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology as well as their own “PowerIQ” technology – boosting charging speeds across all devices to the maximum compatible speed – all whilst in a package that’s “30% more compact” than its nearest competitor. This has earned it the top spot in many people’s “Best Power Bank” lists – I’ve featured its smaller brother the PowerCore 10000 (10,000mAh) in my own 5 Essential Tech Accessories list.
