Belkin’s new transportable charger sports activities a Lightning port in-between two commonplace USBs, so it may be charged up with the identical cable you employ to your iPhone/iPad. As somebody who’s had some points with Apple’s proprietary cables prior to now, it’s one thing of a combined bag — although as somebody who additionally simply got here again from a week-long journey with a carry-on bag filled with cables, there’s one thing to be stated for under having to pack one.
(I additionally not too long ago found the arduous manner that Chinese airports will throw out battery packs exceeding a sure dimension, however that’s a special dialogue.)
