All of you who are out there in the wilds of your homesteads, steadily wandering the bowels of the city and searching for all them 'mons to kidnap, you may want to run at least an eye down this list of fine goods designed to keep you GO-ing at the top of your Pokemon game.
Annoyed that your phone doesn't GO the distance when catching 'em all? Want a nice, Pokémon themed phone case to wow your pals with? Then look no further! Yes, we may have to wait a little bit longer until the Pokémon GO Plus wristband is finally released, but at least we have these...
Vital Accessories To Keep You Pokémon GO-ing
Portable Battery Chargers
For a measly $40, the PowerCore should sit atop every Pokémon trainer's list of indispensable goods. This portable charger packs a massive 20,000 mAh battery that is able to charge an iPhone 7 seven times whilst you're out on the GO. Which is pretty outstanding if you ask me! The thing even comes with surge protection, temperature control and is smart enough to fill your device up with the right amount of juice, so it won't go damaging your tech. Nice!
So this majestic piece of kit is on one side a battery charger with a 8000 mAh battery that charges most devices up to four times. But, get this, the Piston Power Beacon also doubles up as a bloody lamp! With 4 different light settings, the Piston is meant to last up to 5 days as a source of sweet, sweet light. So if you ever find yourself lost in an underground mine, this bad boy may come in handy.
The Solartab is a tablet sized solar-powered battery. So its name is... well... fairly spot on. It contains a 13,000 mAh battery that stores all of the delicious UV from our closest star, and also directly charges from its brilliant light. So perfect if you live in the desert. Or somewhere else with an abundance of sun!
This bag actually blew my mind when I found it. The BirkSun Boost Sport is a solar-powered backpack that can charge up to four devices simultaneously when you're on the move. Like the Solartab, the Boost Sport charges directly from sunlight, or from its internal battery, which is said to charge an iPhone 6 about one and a half times. Oh and it's waterproof, too, for when you start wading into those Poliwag-packed lakes.
Now, if you're not in the mood to spend over $200 on a backpack that's light, comfortable and deep enough to store all the goods you may need whilst GO-ing around town or further away, here are three alternative options that may tickle your fancy.
Now that we're really beginning to look the part, what about a few added cosmetic treats?
This gorgeous smartphone case is loosely based on Pokémon Emerald's opening sequence. You know the one with the little trainer cycling dangerously fast through a grassy area as Pokémon dance around him? Sounds more like an LSD trip than anything else actually. But, yeah, I digress – It's nice.
This piece of genius kit is actually 3D printable, if you happen to have a 3D printer lying around that is. Thrown together by SparkFun user NPoole, the smartphone case transforms your device into a Pokedex straight outta the Kanto-styled original series. With some light soldering -- if you're into that sort of thing -- you can even attach an external battery to keep your Poke-device nice and charged.
And this... well. This is just beautiful, isn't it? A perfect blending of past and present.
Hey, adults like to GO too! And with one of these ace Poke-branded hip flasks by your side, it should make standing about outside in the dark that little bit more fun, and warm, with a touch of whiskey in your belly.
And this awesome invention holds up to 16 oz of whatever liquid you so desire. So long as it's not an acid, I guess. The Autoseal automatically closes its lid after each sip (hence the name) and can keep drinks hot for five hours and cold for 12!
Alright, so there is my little list of goods that'll keep you ticking over when you're out catching all the 'mons in the real wilds of our urban jungles. If you've got the scoop on any other goods that'll help get trainers GO-ing, then feel free to share below! Cause it's nice to share.
