These days, whenever I’m about to fly back home to Lebanon, I spend an hour lining up my chargers, power banks, and USB-C cables, and deciding what my best charging strategy will be. Sure, having a good multi-port wall charger and a car charger is essential, but the country has electricity problems, so portable chargers are non-negotiable too.
The problem is even more complicated when I factor in hopping between four different homes in less than a week, packing and unpacking daily, being on the go most of the day, and frequent electrical blackouts at night. It doesn’t help that I have the most notoriously slow flagship to charge — a Pixel 7 Pro. And so does my husband.
