“Shit, my battery’s dead again”, “Oh, no, I really need to charge my battery, but where?”. These or similar statements will be heard from time to time. It seems like it always happens when you really need your smartphone.

Especially when riding a motorbike, if you also use your mobile phone as a navigation device, the fun ends pretty soon. Even newer models can’t keep up with a day tour. We present you 4 tips on how to get through the day riding a motorbike when you use your mobile phone. In addition, we have provided a few examples so that you can get an idea.

Battery packs

Meanwhile you can get these at every corner and often there are give aways for free. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Not quite. From our own experience we know when you really need it, you don’t have it with you, or it is empty… If you manage the impossible and have charged it up with it, there is also the tangle of cables.

Conclusion: Battery packs do their job, as long as you take care of them and have nothing against the cable clutter. Another advantage is that it can also be used by other devices or friends.

Battery pack without cable

This variant is basically the same as a normal battery pack, but the cable or plug is already integrated here. However, you often have to decide on a connector type.

Conclusion: In terms of operability and handling, these must be placed one step above conventional battery packs, as the cable is no longer required. Disadvantage here is that one is device-bound. Those who can overlook this will probably find the better alternative here.

Battery pack cases

Battery cases are very practical because the phone is also protected in case of an accident and because the battery is integrated. Just press a button and the smartphone draws power from the external battery.

Conclusion: If you always use protective covers and don’t have to pay too much attention to the dimensions, this is the way you go. The protective covers serve their purpose and also protect the device.
