The Jackery Bolt is a portable battery with enough juice to recharge most smartphones around 2-3 times. But the main reason The Wirecutter considers it to be the top battery packs for every day use is that it has built-in cables that let you plug the battery into any device with a microUSB port or an Apple Lightning port.
In other words, you don’t need to carry a battery and a charging cable. Just the battery will do.
So while the $30 list price is a little more than what you’d pay for other 6,000 mAh batteries, it’s still a pretty good deal from a convenience perspective. Today it’s an even better deal: Amazon is selling the Jackery Bolt for just $24 when you use the coupon code BOLT6000.
Of course, if you have a phone with a USB Type-C charging port, you might still need a charging cable… or a different battery).
