1 This bat­tery pack can charge an iPhone or iPad on the go (its 6000mAh ca­pac­ity can give you a cou­ple of iPhone charges, or around half an iPad Air charge), but it has very clever, use­ful fea­tures. It can tell you when it needs charg­ing it­self, and can even re­mind you to do so be­fore a busy day (based on your cal­en­dar en­tries), through no­ti­fi­ca­tions to your iPhone (via its app). And it works! It’s not cheap for a bat­tery pack, and is fairly large for its ca­pac­ity, but that first time it saves your ba­con you’ll be glad you splashed out for it. Matt Bolton

The im­prac­ti­cal­ity of the hub’s USB plug over­rides the pos­i­tive of the seem­ingly neat por­ta­ble de­sign – shame.
