Out­door Tech Ko­diak Ul­tra Line (Start­ing at $29.95) If you run through your bat­tery faster than most (gamers and fre­quent trav­el­ers know the strug­gle), then an ex­ter­nal bat­tery is a must. All three op­tions from Out­door Tech's Ko­diak Ul­tra line pack a ton of juice and come with a built-in flash­light (a handy fea­ture for camp­ing trips). I like Ko­diak's small­est Ul­tra Mini, which I can eas­ily fit it in my purse or pocket. If you need more power or pre­fer wire­less bat­tery packs, try Mo­phie’s Charge Force Pow­er­sta­tion ($79.95).

No­mad Bat­tery Ca­ble ($49.95) Our editor in chief Donna is lov­ing this Light­ning ca­ble by No­mad. Its bal­lis­tic ny­lon braided ca­ble is su­per durable, plus it in­te­grates a 2,800 mAh bat­tery into the ca­ble it­self! Sim­ply charge your iPhone as you nor­mally would be­fore you go to bed. Once the ca­ble has charged your phone, it will switch over and charge the ca­ble's built-in bat­tery, giv­ing you an ex­tra boost of en­ergy that you can take with you wher­ever you go. If you want some­thing more af­ford­able, our CEO David also swears by his Ama­zonBa­sics Light­ning Ca­ble ($6.49-$11.99).

HANS Per­fect Grime Fighter ($14.95) There are few things worse than a grubby iPhone screen (OK fine, there are lots of things worse). But for those mo­ments when you can't bear the sight of fin­ger­prints on your screen a sec­ond longer, there's this nifty cleaner. On one side of this ap­pli­ca­tor you'll find the clean­ing so­lu­tion, and on the other a cloth for pol­ish­ing your screen. Just a cou­ple of swipes and voila! No more pesky fin­ger­prints (or bac­te­ria, most im­por­tantly).

Zagg In­vis­i­bleShield Glass+ 360 Screen Pro­tec­tor ($69.99) Your iPhone's dis­play is most vul­ner­a­ble to drops and scratches, which is why we urge ev­ery­one to use a glass screen pro­tec­tor! The In­vis­i­bleShield's strong tem­pered glass front and pro­tec­tive bumper and back­ing can take on all the bat­tle scars in­stead of your iPhone. We also rec­om­mend the BodyGuardz SpyGlass ($39.95) pri­vacy screen pro­tec­tor, if you want to ob­scure your dis­play from those view­ing your phone from the side.

Oaky­wood Wire­less Charger ($89–$99) It's hard to find a wire­less charger that com­ple­ments your dé­cor; but hey, we man­aged! This wire­less charger by Oaky­wood is not only beau­ti­ful, but it also works like a dream. Its geo­met­ric de­sign and solid wood build make it a unique ad­di­tion to any home—and ad­mir­ing guests won't even know it's an un­der­cover piece of tech.
