But even after that, it's still a fairly good smartphone that can still be used for some basic tasks. If you've held on to it for this long and still see no point in upgrading to a newer device, we'd still suggest getting one of the best portable chargers for Google Pixel, since it's all but certain its battery life is nowhere close to what it used to be.

But in order to do that, you need to make sure it can keep going all day, and this is why we suggest getting one of the best Google Pixel portable chargers.

Our top vote goes to Zendure's Supermini, which gives you 10,000mAh of portable power in a card-sized body that makes it super easy to be carried anywhere, It even looks amazing, thanks to the funky colorways on offer.

Then there's Anker's PowerCore Slim 10000, which gives you two inputs (microUSB and USB-C) for easy recharging. The USB-A output port means it can work with just about any cable you might have lying around in your home. We also suggest taking a look at mophie's Powerstation XXL, which includes a 20,000mAh battery pack in a design that's both stylish and practical.

Once you've picked the right external battery pack, you can also consider pairing it up one of the best USB-C cables (opens in new tab) for an even better experience. If your favorite power bank also has a USB-C output port, you can pair it up with UGREEN's sturdy USB-C to USB-C cable. Not only does its right-angled port let you use your smartphone while it's being charged, but the cable is also extremely rugged.
