At this point there are just as many portable chargers on the market as there are iPhone cases and Bluetooth speakers combined. But somehow Ventev has done the impossible by creating a portable charger that manages to improve on the near infinite number of designs that came before it, by adding built-in Lightning and microUSB cables, as well as AC prongs so it can be plugged directly into an outlet.

At $110 when eventually available in March of next year, the Powercell 10000+ is a little on the expensive side when it comes to portable chargers. But it packs a decent-sized 9,000mAh battery powerful enough to charge two devices at once—even a tablet—and has a small percentage display on top indicating how much battery life it's got left.

It can be connected directly to an AC outlet for charging without the need for a separate adapter thanks to a built-in set of prongs. And if its Lightning or microUSB connectors aren't exactly what you need, the Powercell 10000+ also has a USB port for plugging in and charging almost any other device. So even if you forget your charging cables on a trip, with this in your bag you won't have to worry about all your toys dying. [Ventev]
