    Hi guys, i need to buy an external battery for my iPhone and don't know witch one i should buy. This new trent seems good but i don't know if there is one better. I would need one with at least 7000mAh and that charged the iPhone as quick as possible.

    Apreciate any help, thanks :)

    I just got the Anker Astro 2 for Christmas and it's great. It was mainly to run my video camera for a longer period of time, but it has a 2 amp USB plug for the iPad that will also charge the iPhone 5 really quickly. You have to use your lightning USB cable, of course. There is also a 10000 mAh version if you want more capacity.

    I have a ravpower one. They currently are having a deal mentioned on slickdeal. Link here. 30 bucks for 10,000mah + free shipping on Amazon. The deal is a bit odd where you can only use the code between 5-8 PST otherwise you'll be buying it full price. I was able to get one before my weekend snowboarding trip and I love it! Battery drained so bad when it's roaming in the mountains and all i had to do was plug this in with my iphone cord and it charges wonderfully. I didn't even have to charge my power pack at all and it's a good weight for what it is. Love this thing and I will never go on trips without it.

    NewTrent battery packs have served me well for years for charging iPhones, Android phones, Kindles and more. They have every capacity and style you could want. Check out their positive reviews on Amazon.

    The Gum plus batteries from Just Mobile are quite good.

    I prefer the Sanyo Stick Booster:

    For every set of these you carry extra, you add 5100mAh to the capacity:

    Add the two batteries in the Stick booster on top of that, and it's 7650mAh for one extra set, or 12750mAh for two sets.

    Pretty interesting device since you can use regular batteries. More versatile than one specifically made for charging mobile devices. Does this charge ipads?
