CNET's Best Charging Devices for On the Go

If you forgot your cellphone charger or find yourself in a situation where chargers aren't readily available, then try out one of these charging lifesavers.
Whether traveling for work or play, one indispensable item to pack is your cellphone charger. If you forgot yours or find yourself in a situation where chargers aren't readily available, then try out one of these charging lifesavers.


If you find yourself without a cellphone charger and without a wall outlet to plug into, get your hands on a Powerocks magic stick. For about $34 at major electronics stores, this glue-stick sized charger is powerful enough to fully charge your phone via USB cable twice in a day. Charging the Powerocks itself takes about 5 hours.

For about $30, the Revive Series Solar Restore is great for charging your gadgets in the great outdoors. The Solar Restore gets its charge from the sun -- or a wall plug, if need be -- and can then give your phone or tablet a boost in a pinch.

Finally, a great multitasking charging gadget is the fifty dollar Go FlexSmart X2 FM transmitter. It plugs into your car's cigarette lighter port and not only plays music and takes calls over Bluetooth, but let's you charge your smartphone or MP3 Player while streaming.
