Apple watch travel charger?

I’m shopping for a apple watch travel charger because I’m going to be living in the redwoods for a week in a cabin with no electricity. I’ll be able to recharge in common buildings during the day but I think it would be good to have the ability to charge without power.

Anybody have a favorite charger? Or least favorite?


I would think that any powerbank would be sufficient for this. I always take 2 or 3 along when I’m on the road, and recharge those every time I get a chance.

Or is your question more specific?

I have a charger from FlagPower which has a watch charger built into it. It’s pretty handy for travel - I’ve not tested it for a whole week but I suspect it would work fine!

There are lots of similar devices and it means one less cable to carry - plus this one (and many others), have USB ports on to let you charge other devices.

I’ve fond of this travel charger and case. Compact, keeps cables neat, and has room to carry extra bands.

I use this both at home and when traveling. It has a built in charger.

I can’t find it on the Apple website now, but the Apple stores near me carry a PowerBank with a built-in watch charger. I believe it is less than $100 (US) and offers multiple charges for many devices. A friend bought a similar item that is much smaller and fits on a keychain from Amazon. It only charges the watch.

This is the one I use, and it works great!

I’ve always like Elevation Lab’s products.

If that had 2 USB A ports pushing 2.1A I’d probably get it.

You can charge two devices at once with that thing. I’m not sure how much more you are wanting to charge at a time with a power brick?

  • Two iPhones + one watch
  • One iPhone + one iPad + one watch

Edit: To be clear, I don’t need to charge the watch all the time. But there are times when I’m out with my spouse and both our phones need a boost. I’d rather not have to carry two bricks just so I can cover anything while away from home.

Happen to go to Tassajara?

Apple watch doesnt need much power. A portable battery and a short 12" Apple watch cable should be ample.

There is no cellphone reception so put your iPhone in airplane mode to save a considerable ammount of energy consumption so the phone can last a long time if you don’t want to turn it off.

This is what I’ve been using for a while:

It’s versatile; you can use it like the original Apple charger (plugged to a USB power source) or standalone (via built-in battery). It’s also small and portable.

I’m looking for something to charge my watch on trips. I have an Anker charger that can charge 6 USB devices at a time, and I take this with a bunch of cables. For my watch, I take my 6’ original cable and plug it into this charger. I would like a smallest possible cable or USB plug in watch charger, so that I can leave the 6’ cable plugged in at home. A built in battery would be useful but not essential. I do not want anything that requires the original power cable.
There are plenty short cables and little chargers on Amazon, but they all seem to have bifurcated reviews - some glowing, some saying it didn’t work at all, or worked once and never again, or worked very slowly taking hours to charge a watch, or the watch got warm. Any suggestions?

I’ve used this PowerAdd charger (MFi certified) for about 2 years, and it’s excellent. Even comes in a little pouch.
