Battery Pack Sales Shoot up 100% After Pokemon Go Launch

According to the NPD Group, sales for mobile battery packs that are “designed to charge mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets” grew by more than 100% between July 10 and 23, the two weeks following Pokemon Go’s launch.

In its latest update, Niantic re-introduced the power saver mode for Pokemon Go, but many fans still find their battery draining with just a few hours. Purchasing a battery pack or mobile charger can aid in running out of battery during long Pokemon Go game sessions.
