Results: do you prefer a battery case or a power bank?

If you are an avid smartphone user or one that takes trips regularly, you probably have some sort of portable battery at the ready. There are two main choices to go for — a powerbank, which can get quite massive; or a battery case, which protects your phone while charging it and doesn't require you to remember that one extra item at all times — it's just connected to your smartphone.
We thought we'd ask — what's your choice, bank or case? Here's what you answered!

Honestly the reason i would want a Moto Z Play, just slap the battery on the back, so convenient.

How about a phone that just last a whole day on a single charge. I have yet to be able to drain my Moto G5 Plus in a single day, easily lasts 2 days on a single charge.

And my Samsung Galaxy S6 easily lasts me 2 days on single charge... I'm an old man, and the only apps running and syncing in the background are Email, What'sApp, Twitter & my RSS Feed... Sometimes I run TapaTalk when I'm constantly posting on forums, but it mostly stays disable... And the biggest battery hog among them is that frigging What'sApp, which shouldn't be a surprise cause it's now owned by Facebook... S6 doesn't possess remarkable battery, no doubt... But if one use one's phone reasonably and don't post memes on Facebook 24/7 then any phone can see past 2 days... Perhaps even more, if you turn-off everything and set the cellular band to GSM...! My Lumia 430, which I use as a basic, back-up phone without Internet, sometimes see past 5 days while it has a tiny 1,500mAh battery...! For heavy browsing, I rely on my desktop because of my weak eyesight. And that desktop doesn't run on those awful batteries, thank God...! No #RangeAnxiety...! G'Day!

My heavy under-clocked phone last a day with 8 hrs of SOT with about 3-4 hours of browsing, no game, under clock makes big difference. That's why I think it's stupid to own flaghship phone with the best high-end cpu and it only last 3-4 hrs SOT.
