The only drawback might be that you forget you put this in your trunk and by the time you need it might have lost its charge. So the advice I'd give you is to take this and give it a full charge every few months. myCharge Adventure Jumpstart Portable Charger $49.99
Wide Lens for your iPhone
You can combine a series of these lenses with their magnetic Hitcase Cases to add a whole new dimension to your iPhone photography! Available for most iPhone models. I haven't been dazzled by this, it's not that much better than the wide angle you get while using the iPhone. But some purists might see a difference that makes it worth it. Plus I hate changing my phone cases, which you have to do to use the magnetic coupling. Hitcase TrueLUX Macro Lens Shield Link, $39.00
