Smartphones that are sold today are some of the most advanced electronic devices on the market. The iPhone line and Android phones have great hardware and some amazing operating systems, with Apps for almost any task you can imagine. There are also a variety of external accessories you can buy for your smartphone to enhance your mobile experience. The following are nine of the best accessories available for most smartphones.

Power banks and portable chargers

Regardless of the battery capability of your smartphone, it will not be enough if you use it constantly. This is why power banks and portable chargers have become so popular. Some devices have ports for USB-C type and micro USB ports. You can purchase a portable charger that comes with built-in cables to charge your phone and other devices on the go.

Chargers for cars are great products if you get tired of carrying around a power bank or portable charger. These small devices plug into the power outlet on your dash and have one or more USB ports for charging your smartphone. You have many great options for under $10, but you can also splurge and get one with more options for under $20.

Charging stations for one or more cell phones are beneficial for you if you like to be organized and have everything in its place. A single charging station holds your phone up on your nightstand, allowing you to see what time it is in the middle of the night. If you live with friends or family members, a multiple device charging station looks great and keeps everyone’s phone organized. These accessories even work with tablets.

A Wireless Charger Pad might be worth purchasing if you have a device that supports Qi wireless charging. Make sure to do some research and look at ratings from other customers, particularly ones who own the same smartphone that you do, before purchasing one of these chargers.

Car mount holders

If your smartphone gets heavy use as your navigator, you should get a car mount holder. This accessory is usually attached to your dashboard or to your windshield. Some car mount holders can be attached to your air vent as well. These products are compatible with almost any type of smartphone, but you may want to check your particular model before purchasing one.

Selfie sticks

You may be one of many people with a smartphone who loves to take selfies. A selfie stick will help you get the best angle and distance for your cell phone to take a great picture. Some selfie sticks have Bluetooth capability with long battery life, which makes using them easier. If it can be compacted or extended, the selfie stick will give you many options for capturing the right pose. There are selfie sticks that are small enough to fit in your pocket, or can turn into tripods for taking landscape and group pictures as well.

Attachments for your camera lens

Did you know that you can improve the performance of your smartphone camera with attachable lenses? Some companies sell packages of lenses or single products that give you fish eye, wide angle, and macro capabilities. Your family and friends may be surprised that you can use a smartphone camera to capture amazing photos with lens attachments.

Headphones and earbuds

There are headphones that run from under $10 to just under $500, so there are many options available to you. It all depends on how much you enjoy listening to music, and what kind of budget you have to work with. For example, Bose is a highly recognized name in the industry, and their headphones are available for around $130.

You can also buy earphones that work just as well as headphones in a variety of styles, colors, and qualities. Keep in mind that some smartphones do not come with a headphone jack, so you may have to use wireless headphones.

Wireless technology for electronic devices is one popular feature that many consumers are supporting. This applies to wireless earbuds as well as headphones. If you buy a smartphone that is the most recent model, you may find that it no longer has a wired headphone jack. You can use Bluetooth technology to connect to a pair of earbuds to enjoy music and other audio.

Covers and cases

A cover or case is usually the first accessory that you will buy for your smartphone. They show your preferences for color and personality, but most people choose one that will also protect their smartphone if it is accidentally dropped. Small scratches or even a shattered display glass can appear on your phone if you drop it. There are many options available on the market including plain yet durable cases and creative, personalized soft cases and covers.

Screen protectors

Fingerprints and scratches are inevitable over time, so buying a screen protector for your smartphone can help protect it. These products are also called screen guards. There is no standard size because most smartphone models are different. You will have to check for compatibility with your device before purchasing a protector.

Portable speakers

If sound quality and more volume are important to you and your smartphone is lacking in these features, consider buying a portable speaker. You do not need a cord to plug this product into your headphone socket because the speaker works wirelessly with Bluetooth. You may want to buy portable speakers with a long battery life if you will be using them frequently.
