Good for travellers.. For general usage, companies are already putting large batteries except for apple...

I bought MAXX battery charger for just Rs. 350 (around $6). It's rechargeable and can charge full battery within 30-35 mins. and can also charge battery 5-6 times. :)

carrying removable batteries fully charged is no longer considered fun it seems

Well, it is definitely more practical though.

it is but the advantage of this packs is that it works with many other devices, not just one.

I know right, that's why I got a Momax.
But it's a freaking pain in the ass to wait for your phone to charge.

In Singapore, you can get a 5800mAh charger for about 47 USD! And it is extremely portable, you can find one which is no bigger than 3.5 inch long:)

I have a 2000mAh charger from Sony, gives my phone another day of full usage.

I had the Mophie Power Pack and while it is good, it is very limited for the price... I ended up giving it to my wife and I got the NewTrent Easypak which has nearly double the life (7000mAh) and it has a microUSB cable built in, as well as 2 USB slots (1 and 2.1 A) And it was $30 in Amazon...

What about the Limefuel 156X? I got it on Amazon for $50 USD and it has 15600 maH. Pretty small as well.

I've a 6000mah model, paid 40 bucks.
Can recharge my phone and another where needed.
Part an parcel of my mobile life, also makes me wonder why some insist on proprietary type batteries that once is depleted is useless without a wall wart for it or phone.
Me thinks, they just whine for the sake of it.

Not quite the same category but I got a Braven 850 which doubles as the best sounding portable speaker on the market and a 4000mAh power bank. Can charge tablets too. I think the whole Braven range can at least charge phones.

There's a Nokia portable charger with similar to "Powerocks Magicstick" (2000+ mAh) , but I would trust Nokia at least with this product this days, and I use it for two years and love it...
was about 30$.
has 4 LED lights to show how much charge left, but on average it can charge up to 90% of smartphone easy...
From this list only:
HTC Double Charge Battery Bank
looks cool and is super value for you buck with 6000mAh for 60$, big enough to charge even a tablet with ease...

Hai guys. Ahem. These all suck. All you guys need to get yourselves a Yoobao power bank. < yoobao.com/en/product.asp?b_id=143&m_id=217&a_id=758 >
Try not to giggle at their grammar.. but these chargers are amazing. I have a YB-641 pro, it holds 10400 mAh, output at 5.3V, 1000mA; which allows me to recharge my Evo 3D from 0-100% three times. And it has a 5-light indicator to show how much is left in the reservoir, has a pretty decent LED light, and can really take some hard drops against tarmac, concrete, etc. They're pricey but I can assure you won't regret spending the extra. Like seriously.

I love external battery chargers. I got myself a small 3000mAh and a large 14000mAh at Amazon. Both from RAVPower. I use the small one everyday and take the 14000mAh one with me when out for a few days trip. Both saved me a lot. And they costed me just a few bucks.
