3. Or a vegan leather charging purse that comes in a much larger size, is reversible, and holds up to two full charges!

Promising review: "The tote is high-quality, made well, and being reversible is a bonus. The charging unit is the same high-quality leather zippered pouch that can be removed easily for charging.

5. A high-end charging bracelet to bring your phone up 50% in 40 minutes. This is the super secret spy gadget of the 21st century.

Promising review: "This is awesome. I bought it for my sister-in-law, but ended up getting one for me too. It is so nice to have an extra charger on you. Not in your purse or in the car, but actually on you!" —Erin

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $149. Available in gold and silver.

If you have an iPhone 5-5s or iPhone 6-6s you can also get this slimmer and cheaper option from Amazon for $6.99 that acts as a charging cord.

6. A pair of 10-foot long charging cords because, let's face it, if you can't reach your phone cord from where you're currently laying down, you will not be charging your phone that night.

These cords are for Android and Samsung users but you can find one for iPhones here.

Promising review: "These super extra long cables are heavily made and so great I bought them twice! Now I have them all over my house for fast charging, no matter what room I am in." —pamela eaker

9. A tassel keychain with a lightning cord for anyone looking for an incognito way to carry a charger around with them.

Promising review: "The wires are fairly short, but don't render your phone totally unable to be used if you have a portable battery plugged in. The leathery parts of the tassel actually hides the wire pretty well, compared to the other tassel chargers I was considering. Overall, great buy for the price! No more carrying around my iPhone charging wire!" —Kassie

Get it from Amazon for $7.49. Available in five colors.

10. A bedside lamp built with a USB port so when you turn off the lights to go to bed, you remember to charge your phone. Don't worry it still works even when the light is off!

Promising review: "Very pleased with this lamp. Well made and I love the USB port on the lamp which makes it convenient to plug in my phone. It takes up a very small space but the light is bright enough for the bedroom. I bought two of these." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $38.99 or Walmart for $51.99. Also available with a brown base.

11. A charging vase for the lover of anything both practical and aesthetically pleasing...which is what everything in your home should be.

Promising review: "I was looking for something simple, but classic to do with my phone. This vase was perfect! I love that it keeps my phone upright so I can easily see it. I also love picking up one or two fresh flower stems each week to put in the vase. I am a big fan of multiple use items." — LilyFlower

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $32. Available in two colors.


12. A retractable USB cable that extends to two feet long and takes up barely ANY room in your bag. Say goodbye to tangled wires.

Promising review: "This is honestly the best cable I have ever bought! Very small and pocket sized! I only extend it out about half of an inch instead of the full two feet." — Caleb

Get it from Amazon for $8.99. Available in two colors.

13. A cord organizer so your various chargers don't fall behind your desk never to be seen again. Ain't nobody got time for you, gravity.

Promising review: "I love this product! Intend to order more. It keeps my charger wires (cellphone, laptop) and my USB cords neat and easily accessible. It is heavy enough that it doesn't fall off the table itself; and discreet enough that it can be tucked away behind a pen stand or vase. Perfect." —Suman Bolar

Get it from Amazon for $13.87. Available in four colors

14. A four-port car charger ideal for long road trips or for anyone who has long commutes to work or school and multiple devices to plug in.

Promising review: "This four-port USB car charger is so efficient, I can charge for more than one phone at the same time and I also can listen to my favorite songs that I kept in my USB disk. That's a perfect car charger." —Steven

Now I need you to make me one for my MacBook as that cable is always breaking!" —Michele

Get it from The Grommet for $29.95

17. A charger travel case, because some of us who never charge our phones also lose everything, so this is a great way to try and keep both of those things from happening.

Promising review: "I really like how compact this is for all the cables and charger as well as how it has two different kinds of hooks, making it convenient for travel purposes. Would definitely recommend to anyone." —Zackery Pomerhn

18. And a battery mug that appears to get charged as hot water is poured inside. If anything, this will serve as a reminder of all the times your battery has run out.
