One of the worst situations during travel is when your device runs out of battery. You may be unable to open maps, use GPS, and make a call or text. This can get worse when you are totally unfamiliar with the environment and have no one to rely on.

To prevent these problems, you have to bring your charger everywhere and find a power outlet, which is not easy. A power bank is a great invention that allows us to charge our mobile devices, tablets, and other gadgets without connecting to an electrical power outlet. It is also compact and easy to carry, so you can always get in touch with your phone.

Here are some compact power banks that will be useful for your trip.
