The best portable chargers money can buy
Keeping your smartphone powered up on the go isn’t always easy if you’re going to be away from home for a while. The average smartphone battery might get you through a day and a half with moderate use, and possibly less if you’re using it with accessories like a Bluetooth speaker or a VR headset.
Thankfully, there is a solution. Carphone Warehouse stocks a variety of portable chargers to make sure you can get the most out of both your smartphone and the gadgets that go with it.
One of the big names in portable charging is Kit, or KitVision. The company produces powerbanks letting you charge up on the move.
