    Default What gear is everyone carrying with them on there portal hunts?

    So I've been going up and Down L.A. for the past couple weeks and noticed that all the folks I run into are either carrying extra batteries or charger packs ranging in sizes from small to completely Over kill, so I wanted to get an idea of what everyone across the world is carrying on there expeditions =) I just went ahead and ordered myself one of these

    The note 2 is all I need. Battery is a powerhouse.

    I carry a 9000 mAh external battery. I've seen other players keep the battery in a jacket pocket and run the charging cable down a sleeve. That's hardcore.

    Walking around for a few hours in 20-degree weather drains even my Note II's battery.

    Just one extra battery for my Galaxy S3. And, of course, the car charger when I am in the car.

    Before I head out I always charge up, but I carry a charger, a bit of cash, bottle of water, an aseptic box of soy or almond milk, and a few granola bars or trail mix. Pregnant trekking isn't safe without all the food stuffs.

    I have found that using two devices is a really really good way to conserve battery life, as long as you can tether.

    I use my mobile smartphone (Galaxy Nexus HSPA in my case) as a mobile hotspot (with password, of course) and I use my tablet (Nexus 7 in my case) to run Ingress.

    This increases the amount of battery life by at least a factor of 3 and keeps the smartphone from running too hot (assuming that you are in an area with a good cell signal)
