This rechargeable battery, like the Tylt, has a built-in Lightning cable for iPhones, though other phones can be charged using the supplied microUSB cable. But this 9000mAh cell is half as powerful again as the Tylt, so it can charge an iPhone 6 three times over. It’s aluminium-clad and comes in colours to match the iPhone, too – silver, gold and grey.

Campridgespeaker.jpg

Talented though your smartphone is, it can’t play music well through its little speaker. So choose a Bluetooth speaker like this one that plays music wirelessly from your phone, up to 10 metres away. This model is light, effective and deceptively powerful.
