Best portable battery packs for Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge

Best portable battery packs for Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge
Unlike Samsung's previous flagship handsets, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge do not have removable batteries. Thus, in case you're in a situation where there's no power outlet around, and you don't have a case that doubles as an extra battery, there's not much that you can do to keep your S6 alive when its battery is dying... unless you have a portable battery pack / power bank.

Since you own an expensive, premium smartphone like the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge, you'll probably not want a cheap, no-name battery pack to stand next to it. You'll want an accessory that looks good, while also providing enough power to charge your handset at least twice. We think the portable battery packs that we've included below can be perfect companions to the S6 and S6 edge. Check them out:

Are there other portable battery packsthat you'd use (or are already using) with a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge? Let us know in thecomments section!

I have a $70, 10,000mah battery made by Sony. It even came with a mini battery pack as well, which I gave to someone I know. It's been a lifesaver a couple of times.

IF Samsung gave the S6 the removable battery it deserves, it wouldn't need these stupid external batteries.

It's all for additional profit. Samsung know that people will buy their phones anyway so why not add more revenue by selling them powerbanks? Just like iphones, apple made them as brittle as f**k so people will be forced to buy cases. Accessory is also a big business and they won't let it die just like that.

Go for 10400mah or 16000mah Mi Power Bank costs $16 and $21 respectively. Unbeatable value for money and a great build quality...

Even when I had the S3, or G3 I still used a portable charger. Mostly because having a single charger I can take out and plug up anytime I want to is more convenient to me than carrying multiple batteries. But to each their own.

I suggest you don't go for any of these... the best (and most popular) ones are made by anker. This one at $37 is 16000mAh and features 2x 3amp ports. They also do higher spec models with more capacity, power, and ports, as well as lower spec ones. Reviews are very good, and price is excellent. Not sure how they didn't make the list.

I bought their E7 25,600 mAh power bank from Anker. I accidentally drop it on my soft carpet flooring from bedset height and the charging port breaks. Samsung might charge more, but I think you get the best hardware quality build and charge performance working with 1st party accessories.

That's my choice. I loved my Anker, but it's my Aukey. #QuickCharge

They seem to forget the lack of efficiency. You will never get the full amount of battery.
