Default portable charger

Can anyone recommend a truly portable battery charger for a Galaxy Ace which I can use when out walking?

Welcome to AF I hope I can help you if not one of the other staff should be able to answer your question.

I don't use one (just keep a spare battery on hand) but it looks like you can use any micro usb power pack according to the specs on your phone.

Here is one that will do multiple devices and has as usb port to plug in your own charging cable. Amazon.com: Duracell Powerhouse USB Charger with Lithium ion battery / includes universal cable with USB and mini USB,: Health & Personal Care

For many years I'm using mobile chargers/power packs (JustMobile Gum, Anker Astro) with different phones for hiking trips.

These mobile chargers act like wall chargers

I already mentioned this on another thread, but I have a Ravpower one and I love it and can't stop recommending it. Since I'm a heavy phone user when it comes to trips, i always have this baby with me. No more dead battery before going back to the hotel. My wife usually holds onto this during our trips in her purse and when i need to charge, I can just charge it on the go. It also has 2 usb ports so both my wife and I can charge at the same time and it will give enough juice to charge both our phones at the same time.

I was doing some light surfing and came across this ravpower 5600mAh from amazon.com. Looks a lot smaller than the 10000mAh options, but probably provides a lot less juice, so to each their own.
