Anyone who owns a smartphone needs a battery pack. It’s the only way to ensure that your mobile device has sufficient juice throughout the day.

How to mirror Android SMS alerts on an iOS device

So here I am, an Android phone in one hand and an iPad in the other. My trusty Nexus 5X is by my side most of the day, but occasionally I set it aside for a midday charge, leaving me with nothing but my iPad to work with.
