    As we all know, iPhones have the worst battery of all the Smartphones that are out so we need additional back-up chargers in case we aren't near a computer or plug socket.

    I've been thinking of getting either a Mophie Juice Charger (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mophie-Juice...+pack+iphone+5) or a portable charger (http://www.amazon.co.uk/EasyAcc%C2%A...attery+charger) for when I'm out and about, in your experience which is the better option?

    I have an external pack similar to the one you posted (it's this one to be precise http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

    One disadvantage of a power pack is that it's not so easy to charge the phone while walking around, like with the case charger. However I've found when traveling if you charge the phone when you're sitting down (in a restaurant, on a train for example) that should keep you going for when you are walking. Also, an external battery pack can be used to charge other products (cameras, tablets, friends phones) and will still be of use when you change your phone.

    An external pack is cheaper and holds more charge, and may be able to charge more than one thing at once (and will work with your next phone, whilst a juice pack is model specific)

    However they are bulky, can take ages to charge and require a cable
