With the newer iPhone (mine is 5S, as a global travel & backup phone) - integrated battery case (Alpatronix BX-120 with 2,400 maH rating, charged via micro-usb cable) - boosting the internal 1,500 maH battery, more than 2.5X normal standby/usage - good for easily 2 days of moderate to heavy usage, depending on Apps being run. Otherwise, a week of standby mode & light use, seldom the need to take out the charger.
For charging on the road/go - a high-output dual USB compact/folder, dual-voltage charger by iClever, works with iOS Lightning cables and Android smartphones & tablets ... micro-usb and usb-C cables, easily topping off devices in 30 minutes to 1 hour, while in-between (airport lounges & boarding gate) - does not block the 2nd. wall outlet.
Otherwise, Anker's hi-output charger with 4 usb-ports (newer ones has 5 ... bulky & heavier) - same compatibility as above.
For reserved & standalone 5v power in the middle of nowhere (i.e. unexpected power outage) - aside from a dual-outpout 12 volt vehicle charger (rental cars, etc.) with lighter plug to tap for charging, taking minimum of space ... carry an Allpowers slim USB battery, rated up to 5,500 maH (about the size of an iPhone 5) - enough reserve to power my Nexus 5X smartphone and either Nexus 7 tablet or iPad Mini for travel (those 10+ hours T/A or T/P long haul flights ... plane's onboard usb port are fine for staying connected but not always good enough for keeping devices fully charged).
Newer models of iClever and Anker are all on Amazon, along with Allpowers - a simple 2 LED's or 3 LED's usb light plugged in served as a portable lantern for general lightning for a small area ... continuously for easily several days (a safe, modern day hurricane "lamp") *** For cruising, the mini-LED is excellent as a night light to find one's way to the stateroom's bathroom, it is very bright & barely drain the battery at all.
