Just Mobile’s Tiny Battery Pack Is Big Enough To Completely Charge Your iPhone


This tiny backup battery is small enough to take anywhere.


“You can’t take it with you.” This is a saying usually uttered by those people who are bitterly jealous of their richer friends' and relatives' success. It refers to the fact that your money is no good when you’re dead.

But it could equally apply to many external battery packs for the iPhone, which you can’t take with you because they’re too big, and you’re not carrying a bag.

Enter the Gum, a tiny 2200mAH battery pack which fits in your pocket, and while it won’t help you in the afterlife, it will help you where it counts: in the actual real world of too-short battery life.

The Gum comes from Just Mobile and is a littler version of the Gum Pro. Despite the name, it’s not the size of a pack of gum, but is the size of a stack of packs. It comes with a case and a cable, and is capable of charging your iPhone entirely from dead.

The Gum costs just $50, and you might as well spend it. After all – you can’t take it with you.

    Satechi 10000 mah is 5x amount of battery capacity and cost the same. Portable too.

    Ehhh, the Forward Powertube 4400 provides 4400mAh power and costs about $60 at Best Buy. I’ve had one for a couple weeks and it provides ~40% more power to an iPad. Either way, it’s more power at a comparable price. The “tube” form factor is a bit different but you still get electrons when you need them.
