Though some of your family and friends may still rely on the wall-socket chargers that came with their devices, why not help boost their mobile independence? From your nephew to your best friend, many of the people in your life probably have mobile devices and need the best cell phone chargers to keep them powered up. So, if you're looking for gift ideas, give the gift of long battery life with one of these great charging accessories.
For the driver
Does your brother drive his friends around on the weekends, or does your dad hit the road for his job as a salesman? Then they'll love a car charger.
The Energizer® Cup Inverter fits in most cup holders and powers up to five devices at once—perfect for when it’s Mom’s turn to carpool or the family heads out on a road trip. Or check out the Verizon Dual USB Vehicle Charger, which automatically detects the device type to offer rapid charging. This vehicle charger also provides an additional standard USB port so you can charge two devices at a time. With a trusty vehicle charger, the kids’ tablets will keep them entertained for an entire trip, and the whole crew is safer with a charged phone in case of emergency.
Chargers for in the home
How many people spend an entire get-together watching videos and playing games on their phones? Probably more than a few.
The Verizon Travel Charger with Dual Output is ideal for someone who has lots of gadgets—it can charge two devices at once.
Wireless chargers make the perfect gift
Wireless (also known as inductive) chargers are some of the hottest products on the mobile market. If your sister-in-law owns a phone that’s Qi-compatible (that means wireless-charging ready), buy a compatible wireless charging pad instead of that cinnamon-scented candle. Great options include the Verizon Wireless Charging Stand and the Sony Wireless Portable Charger.
For the adventurer
For those in your life who are always on the go, get them a charging accessory that keeps them connected and safe while out and about. A portable charger (initially powered up the old-fashioned way, by an electrical outlet) keeps phones running anywhere. The Sony 1000 mAh Portable Charger and mophie powerstation® provide universal power to multiple devices simultaneously—perfect for staying juiced up during a camping trip or a day at the soccer fields.
Cases that extend battery life
Maybe you have a friend or family member who’s guilty of keeping his phone glued to the side of his head at all times, relishing in the gift of gab. Sometimes a single battery can’t keep up with days of long phone conversations. A battery-life-extending case, available for various smartphones, lets him stay charged for longer. These cases not only extend battery life, but also protect the phone from basic wear and tear. Options include the mophie juice pack® air for the iPhone® 6/6s.
What good is a smart device with a dead battery? Keep someone you know charged and connected to Verizon’s 4G LTE network by gifting one of the best cell phone chargers.
