The Chargemander gives Pokemon Trainers another reason to keep going


If you’ve been bitten by the Pokemon Go bug, then you know how easy it is to lose hours of your life going on a healthy walk with friends to try and catch ’em all. Of course, the problem with that app is that it drains your phone’s battery at around a percent a minute. If you haven’t already, it’s pretty much mandatory that you get yourself a backup battery tout suite.

 For those of you who are lucky enough to have not bought one yet but are just now considering getting one, may I introduce to you the Chargemander. This is a friggin Pokedex phone charger that your phone sits inside of, sucking up all the power it needs to let you keep going on your merry way so you can find something more exciting than 15 Rattatas. Not only does this look super awesome, but it will charge your phone 3 times over, and can charge it to full in around 15 minutes.

Obviously this sort of awesome case is not going to be dirt cheap, so be prepared to pay out $89. This 5200mAh battery will give you up to 33 hours of serious Pokemon tracking. It also has smart charging, so when it’s plugged in (with the same cable as your phone uses!), it will charge your phone first, and then the case. It will not only let other trainers know what’s up, but will also help keep your phone safe from any drops or falls while out pokehunting.
