Harry Potter: Wizards Unite could fast become the game of the year for mobile device users. The free-to-play, location-based augmented reality game (finally) is finally available in the U.K. and the U.S. after first launching in Australia and New Zealand. If you plan on joining other Potterheads on this incredible journey, be sure to have a portal charger for your mobile device. Here are our favorites for both iPhone and Android-based devices.
A popular and trusted option
Anker remains one of our favorite brands, as is the PowerCore 10000mAh, which packs in a reasonable amount of power in a small and compact form factor. It's enough for three and a half charges and even features fast charging capabilities.
You can grab a TravelCard that's made specifically for iPhone or Android with a built-in cable. Though 1500mAh won't give you a full charge, it should help you make it to the end of the day, which is all you should expect out of a credit card-sized battery pack.
This impressive portable charger can power up to two smartphones or tablets at once with a total current output of 4.5A. It comes in multiple colors, including blue, red, and white.
Power of the rainbow!
On your magical journey, consider this shiny, colorful little power pack from Poweradd. Available in pink, red, blue, green, this 5,000mAh portable battery is compact, round, and can fully recharge most phones at least once before running dry.
Amazingly priced, this 10000mAh battery pack should charge your device a couple of times before needing a recharge. It also contains a built-in flashlight for nighttime wizardry.
Roughly the size of a chocolate bar, this low-priced solution should charge your device at least once, if not a little bit more before needing recharging. The Anker Astro E1 comes in four colors.
If you own an iPhone, you should consider one of Apple's smart battery cases. Yes, these cases are pricey. However. they provide an all-in-one solution that doesn't require cords. Be sure to purchase the correct one for your iPhone model.
This high-capacity power bank has a solar panel, so once its 24000mAh battery is depleted, you can leave it out in the sun to charge, making it perfect to taking on adventure trips in the Potterverse.
Enjoy the Potterverse!
