The idea of having a long battery life on your phone has been a request for a few years now, but mobile developers seem to focus on making the phones faster, thinner, and including technology that takes up more space on top of it all. This is why many companies have come up with new ways to provide longer battery life or the ability to charge your phone while on the move.

There are many options when it comes to recharging or supplying your phone with an extended battery so it will last longer. The most common options include a battery bank or a case that attaches to your phone and provides additional charge to your battery as it runs out.

This means you don’t have to carry anything with you, or have a case on your phone. Simply plug in the cable to your device and into the USB slot on the case and charge your phone.
