* Pick from keychain accessories to portable power banks
* Our picks work with Watch Series 1, 2 and 3

Battery life on the last couple iterations of the Apple Watch have been better than advertised, but an unforeseen drawback to this surprise might cause some to forget that their watch needs to be recharged every couple of days. If you find your Apple Watch has kicked the bucket unexpectedly, ask for one of these portable power accessories this upcoming holiday season. Or pick one up today.

1. Solco Charging Station

Not only does this portable charging station look like the latest Mac Pro, but it will recharge your Apple Watch seven times over. You can also charge your phone at the same time.

2. SmaShell Power Case

Avid travelers take note – the SmaShell Power Case can accommodate every series of the Apple Watch, works with both the 38mm and 42mm versions and doubles as a protective case. The SmaShell claims to be able to recharge the 38mm variant six times and the larger version up to five. If you have the Hermes Double Tour band, it won’t fit into the SmaShell.

3. Pantheon Portable Magnetic Charger

Our next two picks are all wireless keychain accessories that work with all three versions of the Apple Watch, but they differ in overall size and battery capacity. Pantheon’s Portable Magnetic Charger has the smallest battery of the bunch, but it will recharge Series 1 Watches three times and Series 2 and 3 Watches twice. You can even charge the Pantheon and your Watch simultaneously.

4. Oittm Apple Watch Portable Charger

Though Oittm’s Apple Watch charger will only last for 1.5 charges, it is the smallest of the three keychain accessories.

If you need a portable battery pack that will charge just about anything you plug into it, then you’ll want the ZENS.
