Consumers no longer have one device but multiple ones including a smartphone, a tablet and potentially beyond, which has given the portable external battery market a boost over the past short while.

As battery technology continues to innovate and we see more powerful yet compact methods of storing energy for later usage, the portable external battery might become something we've yet to imagine in the technology-saturated market.
