If you’re headed off into the wilderness this summer, or just to a festival, check out our selection of the best phone chargers to keep you powered up. From the sci-fi Brunton Hydrogen Reactor to the handbag-sized Anker Astro Mini, our selection of big, small and unusual phone chargers mean that you can find an emergency battery pack whatever your budget or bag size.
Phone chargers are getting increasingly small and powerful, and packing ever more new and unusual features, making it difficult to be sure which charger is best for your trip. We took a look at power packs from the high tech to the rugged, and found the best cases and chargers to keep you going for your whole trip.

If you’re away for the weekend and only need a charge or two, the Monster PowerCard is a great all-rounder that will keep you in contact with civilisation but not weigh down your bag. But if you’re after something bigger, the Anker Astro Pro should have all the charge you need; and the smaller Anker can fit into the smallest handbags.
