Your mobile phone is important to you. Heck, sometimes we even experience a mild panic attack if we forgot to bring it to the bathroom with us.  It's clear that we can't live without our phones, even if it's for more than just a few seconds. 

The other day while I was traveling back home from Jamaica, my phone was about to die. Thankfully I had two extra battery packs fully charged in my backpack just waiting for the moment my iPhone reached 1%. This had me thinking: what are some other accessories that I use with my mobile phone that I can't live without. 

Cue my list of the top 20 mobile accessories you should know about.

Portable Waterproof Solar Charger

Having an extra charger with you at all times is real handy. Having a charger that doubles as a solar charger, well that's just life changing. These are perfect for outdoor activities, especially during the day when you can catch some sun to charge them up.

OlloClip

Whether you're a professional or amateur photographer, I think we can agree that we all like taking photos.  OlloClip helps you by adding additional lenses to your iPhone or Android device. My personal favorite is their macro lens for whenever I want to get a really close up shot. They also sell wide angle and telephoto lenses as well.

Mobile Car Docks

Not sure this needs any explanation, unless you've never tried driving with your phone in your lap. Mobile Car Docks work well for many different reasons, but my personal favorite is for when I'm using maps.

Stylus

With the popularity of apps like Snapchat, where you can doodle on photos you took, I can't imagine a world without a good  stylus. There are many to choose from, but a simple regular ol' stylus should do you just fine.

Mobile Touchscreen Gloves

Ok, this one may sound a bit silly, but if you have never experienced trying to use your phone in 5-below weather, well then I'm jealous of you. Having  touchscreen gloves is key to staying warm and never missing a beat on your mobile device.

Mini Charging Cables

I travel a lot, and one of the most frustrating things is having a ton of different cables getting tangled in my bags. This is why I have a set of mini charging cablesI bring with me whenever I'm on the road. So much easier to handle and easy to clean up.

Car Chargers

I like to have a full charge wherever I end up. The best way I do this is by having a car charger ready to go. Most cars these days come with an additional USB charging port, but in case your car doesn't have one, grab yourself one of these guys.

In-Ear Headphones w/ Remote

I don't go anywhere without a pair of  headphones, whether they're small in-ear or big noise-cancelling ones. It's a great way to escape from the crowds while still remaining connected. Just make sure you grab one with a remote so if you need to jump on a call you don't have to unplug.

Ringly

This handy accessory is more for the ladies, but still something worth mentioning. Since most women keep their phone tucked away in their purse, this accessory will blink or glow letting them know they have a call or text. Cool right?

Bluetooth Headsets


Bluetooth headsets have been going out of style over the last few years, with that most cars come with it already integrated, and you usually look like a fool walking around talking to yourself. However I have found having one charged and ready to be quite the handy accessory.
