11 Travel-Friendly Portable Chargers

In 2017, our phones are no longer just phones. We use them to fire off emails, snap all our photographs, get directions to wherever we’re going, check our bank accounts, and more. And when it comes to travel, we need peace of mind that whether our mode of transport has outlets, or not, we’ll be able to recharge. Here, 11 travel-friendly portable chargers—from well-respected, less than $20 options, to top-of-the-line, worth-investing-in models—that will ensure you’re never frantically placing a call on one percent battery again.

A Brooklyn-based writer and editor, Chelsea's work has appeared in Matador Network, The Huffington Post, the TripAdvisor blog, and more.
