Usual introduction to this. You know the story. Smartphone batteries aren’t great. We don’t want fat batteries, but at the same time we don’t want to be running back to a power point to juice the thing up every few minutes.
So what are you going to do?
Well, a battery pack / portable charger / portable battery (whatever you want to call it) is the solution, but then you have to remember to carry the thing around with you.
This particular one, for £15.95, is a clever compact mirror and a battery at the same time. It manages to combine the usefulness of a 3000mAh powerbank with a pretty stylish mirror, so you can look your best at the local pub or club.
The modern mirror is a great handbag accessory, and the 3000mAh battery should juice most smartphones up once from nothing. It’s compatible with the iPhone 5 and 6 plus Android devices too. Best of all? You don’t need to remember to cart around an extra device – just put your mirror in your bag as you normally would.
No flat battery, and brilliant make-up – all in one little gadget measuring just 7.5 x 7.5 x 2cm. It features one standard USB port output (so you can use whatever cable you need) and is charged via a microUSB port on the side.
The people behind this also want me to point out that it’ll help you get the perfect look for those all-important selfies too. :)
