8 Tiny Backup Batteries That Could Save Your Trip


I rely on my smartphone for pretty much everything these days—it’s a GPS, camera, and computer all in one. When I’m traveling, snapping photos and looking up what to do next my battery drains even faster than normal, and there’s nothing worse than being stuck in a strange place with no way to order an Uber or look up the nearest subway stop.

A backup battery can be a lifesaver by making sure you don’t run out of power when you’re on the go. But if your emergency power source is too big and bulky, you’re more likely to leave home without it. These eight amazingly small batteries (including options for iPhones, Samsung phones, and everything else) are shockingly small and thin, and might just save you when you need it the most.
