The best wireless power bank for your iPhone
Ready to ditch the cables once and for all? While you may enjoy a wireless charger on your desk or nightstand, a wireless power bank lets you go anywhere. And, it should be your next step into the cable-free world.
Every single version of every smartphone is met with the same question: how long does the battery last? And no matter the innovation a brand has, the battery life never seems to be enough.
Sure, you could lug around your adapter and cable, hoping to find a free outlet. Or even an open USB port. Either option leaves you with uncertainty, knowing your iPhone probably won’t last as long as your day with everything on your to-do list.
This is especially true for those who travel or have a long commute that doesn’t involve their own vehicle.
A wireless power bank will totally change the game for you. Unlike those that require cables that you eventually “store” by wrapping around the power bank, a wireless power bank lets you go totally cable-free. Simply rest your smartphone on top and let it get charging.
The great thing about a wireless power bank is that they’re inherently compact in size. Not only can you carry one anywhere you go, but you can also continue to charge just about anywhere. You can keep your phone charging whether it’s on your desk or in your pocket, all without errant cables running amok.
