Universal Chargers Features Comparison
One of the most important features to consider when shopping for a cheap mobile device charger is battery capacity. If you want a cheap mobile device charger that will recharge a smartphone at least once, look for a charger with a battery no smaller than 1,500 mAh. Another crucial feature to note is compatibility. Check with the manufacturer to find out if the cheap mobile device charger will work with the devices you use most often when you're out and about. Remember that a low-cost mobile device charger is most useful if it can be recharged easily. If you don't travel with a laptop, consider going for a cheap mobile device charger you can plug into the wall when it runs out of juice. All our picks are small and lightweight, but their comparative weight and size make some more portable than others.
