Pokémon GO is finally in UK app stores, and it's taking the country by storm. It’s lots of fun and ridiculously addictive. But it’s also greedy – if you’ve been playing it for while, you might have noticed your battery life being gobbled up a lot quicker than usual.
This is because the app uses your phone’s graphics processor, cellular radio, camera and GPS to update its augmented reality world.
If you’re a dedicated Pokémon GO player, your best bet could be to invest in some back-up power. We’ve got a range of mobile chargers in lots of different shapes and sizes at Carphone Warehouse, so check them out below.
As a rough size guide – a 2,000mAh power bank should be enough to fully charge your phone. A 4,000mAh power bank will charge it twice over, and so on…
