Best portable (non-electric) battery chargers & batteries for Samsung Galaxy S2 X


I'm going to be selling my products at Comiccon in a few weeks, and I need my phone to be fully charged, or have the capacity to stay fully charged for up to 10 hours. I need to get one of the following for my phone, and would like some suggestions on the best products for the following: 1. Spare battery (which aren't sold anymore in any Montreal stores within reach of the metro) 2. Portable battery charger that doesn't require electricity to charge a phone (The charger itself should be and can be charged using electricity for multiple uses) 3. Battery extender? When my data plan is turned on, my battery doesn't last more than a few hours, so I'd like to get either a charger or a spare battery. What brands are good for the samsung galaxy S2 X, where's the best place to buy it (ebay.ca or amazon.ca - I'm in Canada) ??? What brands and locations should I avoid (buying directly from China??) Thanks!!

I actually had good luck buying a few spare batteries and a charger from China for 12$ off eBay for my s2x I rotated through three batteries a day and one was always on the charger but if your going to be away from a power source just charge em the night before. Or goto pharmaprix and grab an energizer external battery charger and some good lithium batteries. Hope this helps

Is there a specific kind of battery that my phone takes? I'm trying to avoid taking off the case, and then the other back and then the battery to find out. 😉 I don't want to buy a battery that has the wrong amp? or whatever it is. How about this product?? Would this be good?? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/battery-charge...

It wouldn't let me edit my post so: Here's a link to when I had a similar need: http://gsfn.us/t/3tjd8 Also there are rechargeable battery packs available at best buy and future shop and even Pharmaprix. The higher the MaH rating, the longer it will last. Hope this helps

Yup that's exactly what I got but you can find better deals, for instance mine came with two batteries. The charge takes about 5 -8 hours and I found the batteries to be just as good as oem

What about this product?? It'd be less of a hassle for me because I wouldn't have to remove the battery. I'm just not sure if it's really portable, or if it need electricity to charge.... or how it works exactly 😉 http://www.amazon.ca/Anker%C2%AE-Astro-Mini-2600mAh-Ultra-Compact/dp/B005NF5NTK/ref=pd_sim_sbs_ce_2

Yup that might work too. I say might only because if the amp rating isn't high enough it may not last as long as you like. If you use that I recommend plugging your phone into it to start with then when it's empty your internal battery will be fully charged already.

Ok, this product has a 10,000 mAh rating, but my phone isn't listed... would this potentially work?? http://www.amazon.ca/10000mAh-Multi-voltage-External-Lightning-Provided/dp/B005NGKR54/ref=cm_cr_pr_orig_subj

Either one will potentially work. If it can charge a tablet your phone shouldn't be an issue. That being said, this is my opinion. And actually it's a great price point for those too.

You charge them up in advance of your trip / event (at the hotel the night before) then you plug them into your phones charging port and they discharge, if you start with a fully charged battery it should last you quite a while. They do need to be recharged from time to time
Nowadays, tech market is flooding with a variety of gadgets company's accessories with its size, design, capacities and many more thing. I owned recently launched Xioami power bank and after 2 months of experience, I definitely say that you should go for it if you have a limited budget for power bank (Try this best power banks under $25). OR try some other Portable Battery Chargers.
