If you only use your smartphone to dinosaur way - so just for calls and texts - then 1 full charge might last you the day. But if you're the kind who scrolls through Instagram and streams Netflix on the go, then you most probably need a power bank. Power banks are portable chargers. Think of them like batteries for your smartphone battery: you need to first charge it before bringing it out, and then using a USB cable, use it to charge your smartphone (or whatever 'dead' device you have). Here's a rough guide on power bank prices in Singapore.
