Amazon always seems to have good deals, and today they are offering the Mpow 12,000mAh external battery for about $36. It's normally $66, so that's a huge discount, it's actually 46% off to be exact. The battery pack should be able to recharge your Galaxy Note 3 a couple of times, as well as your Nexus 5 a few times. Just to give you an idea of how much power is inside this charger. The Galaxy Note 3 has a 3200mAh battery, the Nexus 5 has a 2300mAh battery, and this charger is a 12,000mAh battery. That's roughly 3 times what the Galaxy Note 3 has and about 5 times what the Nexus 5 has.
Here are some of the specs for this external battery charger:
- Capacity: 12000 mAh; Input: DC 5V / 1A; Output 1: DC 5V / 1A; Output 2: DC 5V / 2.1A; Size: 6 x 2.8 x 0.59 inch; Weight: 10.2oz. Material: Aluminium Alloy. Color: Black.

External chargers like this are especially good for those that like to play Ingress a lot. As most of us already know, Ingress likes to take a ton of battery when you're playing. Which is understandable since it's using your screen, data connection and GPS. Once more, it's not even using WiFi most of the time since you're outdoors and not at home.
This one is on sale now, and I believe it's only on sale today. So if you're debating on picking it up, you may want to hury up and make up your mind before it sells out. Since I'm sure it'll sell out quickly. Especially with more people playing Ingress and more OEMs moving to non-removable batteries.
