Introduction:

Portable Chargers are electronic devices that provide backup power to your mobile gadgets when you are out of power. They come in three different types: external battery chargers, emergency chargers & solar-powered chargers. As the name implies,  external battery packs are portable batteries that can be connected to a wall adapter or USB port. Emergency chargers do not come with a built-in battery. Instead, their chargers are regular standard chargers that have LED lights to indicate the charging status of your mobile device. Solar power banks or solar panels, as they’re popularly called, use solar energy to charge your gadgets and typically don’t support full phone battery charges (although there is always an exception).
