All the right angles: nonda ZUS Right Angle USB-A to USB-C Cable

A battery pack is pretty useless if you don't have a cable. We'll recommend this right-angle cable because it's perfect for charging in tight spaces, like cars and in-pocket charging. It's also pretty rugged with a nylon braiding and a design that puts less strain on the USB port connection.

Buy a battery pack you can rely on

If your original Pixel is still working fine and you see no reason to upgrade just yet that's just fine. But after years of use, your battery is going to start to wear down. That's why we always recommend getting a portable battery pack so that you've always got some backup power in your bag if you need it.

Buy one Galaxy S10 or Note 10 and get one free at Verizon

Of these options, how can you not love Ventev PowerCell 6010+? Unless your know you can get more use out of a battery pack with bigger capacity, you'll love the convenience of the built-in charging cable and folding AC prongs.

A solid alternative pick is the Aukey 20,000mAh Portable Charger. At this price, you get a battery pack that's designed to work with any device you own — including the Nintendo Switch — with plenty of capacity built into a thin and portable battery pack.
