Powerbanks and battery extensions have become a necessity as the battery life of our smartphones continue to frustrate us, while at the same time our dependence on our gadgets for almost all our activities continue to increase. But sometimes, it is a pain to be constantly carrying around wires and batteries that feel (and look) like a bar of soap in our bags or pockets.

TYLT Energi 10K review

With battery packs, there are plenty of options available. Though the normal size of the external charger is around 5,000 mAh, some prefer a larger pack.

We put the 10K to the test to see if it holds up to another TYLT pack we highly recommend, the Energi+.
