Crank. Highly Recommended.

A super tiny, portable charger for your iPhone

By The Editors

Because your giant new phone needs more recharges than a three-year-old does naps, we found you something called Crank.

No, not the drug.

Crank is a charger that’ll fill your battery to 100% when there’s no socket or cig lighter in sight.

The Dart, which we tested, comes in a matte navy case small enough to wrap your fist around.

Inside: a Samsung Grade A lithium-ion polymer cell that can charge your phone as if it were plugged into a wall.

And it has two ports — so it can charge itself and your phone simultaneously.

It was invented here in LA, and it’s ideal for concerts, festivals, traveling, wine country or the beach.

You can count on it for 4-5 charges, and it’ll last more than 500 cycles.

Which is more than we can say for your new iPhone.
