LG G5 official battery charger

The LG G5 is one of the few devices on the market with a removable battery, which means — obviously — that you can buy a spare one to keep around in an emergency.

LG's official G5 battery charger comes with a spare battery and a convenient little case that can charge it independently from the one in your phone. If you run out of juice and can't charge your phone on the go, having a fully-charged battery backup comes in pretty handy. Trust us, we've been through it! With a 2,800mAh charge, the G5's battery should last you all day, but just in case it doesn't, this spare one is a great addition to your kit.

Encased desktop charger

Charging your phone in your office can be a bit of a nightmare. If you are trying to do your work, and use your phone at the same time you probably start wondering why you only have two hands.

Encased makes a neat charger that allows you LG G5 to remain upright. It may not seem like much, but when you think of how many times you touch your phone in a day, having the ability to do so without holding it sounds pretty nice doesn't?

You can plug the charger into your computer's USB port but we suggest plugging it in directly to a wall socket for the best effect.
