Smile Fuel Rod or amazon portable charger

With Disney pushing more reservation stuff on my Disney experience (MDE), im thinking of getting a portable phone charger.

I wasn't sure if Fuel Rods are still free, or $3 per swap. Sounds convenient.

Fuel Rod performance seem okay, but not great, per reviews. Some older reviews recommending to instead buy a charge from amazon.

Any opinions / recommendations welcome.

My family is split between android and iphone, fyi

I recommend anything Anker. Stylish, many different sizes and configurations. Reliable (though any pretty much is).

I prefer higher capacity for just in case, but the higher the capacity, the bulkier the charger so you have to find your sweet spot.

We always have used a brick...did some research and love it. Works like a champ, we carry it in my backpack.

Iím also a fan of the Anker products. Only downside at times is remembering I have it when going through the metal detectors....
