One thing I don’t like about my iPhone is that the battery drains a lot quicker than the batteries on my Android and Windows phones. For that reason, I usually carry a portable charger with me when I travel, just to make sure I don’t get stuck in a tight spot or miss out on the chance to take photos of a memorable moment. There’s a variety of portable chargers on the market at all different price points and in all different sizes. —and .

  1. Several passengers had problems taking charging bricks on plane from Viet Nam to Cambodia in carry on or checked baggage. They were confiscated due to a perceived fire hazard of the batteries.

  2. Or, if you forget your charger, ask to borrow one from your hotel. Perhaps the hotel’s lost and found could lend you one that someone has left behind.
