We’ve written about portable chargers many times before. They’re the travel gadget that flight attendants say they never leave home without because when you’re constantly on the go, you just can’t afford to have your phone, your lifeline, die on you. And you never know when you’ll have access to an outlet or charging station. (Speaking of outlets, did you know that you should never use an airport charging station and if you do, you should use this product?)

If flight attendants say they never travel without a portable charger, then you know it’s a travel must-have. Because who knows how to be a more prepared traveler than a flight attendant? And, in light of what happened to political commentator Candace Owens on a recent British Airways flight, it’s always smart to be prepared. You can read that story here.
This INIU portable charger can hold up to a week’s worth of charging capacity and can charge up to three devices, which is the main thing I like about it. You and your travel companions can use it simultaneously or you can charge your own multiple devices, like your phone and your tablet, at the same time. It can also charge smaller devices like AirPods, your smart watch, fitness tracker, Bluetooth speaker, etc.
But that’s not all: It’s got a large digital LED display so that you can always see exactly how much power is remaining. That’s always been one of my biggest pet peeves about portable chargers – you need them as a back-up and it sucks when they’re out of juice and you don’t even realize it. Plus, it has a built-in flashlight, which can be useful for everyday tasks like reading or when you go camping but is also invaluable during a blackout or other emergency.
What’s included: INIU 20000mAh power bank, USB C cable, travel pouch, welcome guide, 30-day money back, industry-leading 3-year warranty, plus lifetime technical support. Buy the INIU portable charger here on Amazon.
NOTE: If you do order this charger, it may come in a package that says that it is forbidden for transport aboard passenger aircraft. It has to go in carry-on baggage, not checked luggage. Here’s what you need to know.
