Some models we can add a battery back to the phone and double the battery time.

I have had good luck with the Anker brand, but...

...there are others worth testing. Read through the Amazon reviews to get a sense of what you might expect from end users who have done some of the legwork already.

There is enough generic crap being peddled now that although most of us can grab an $8 battery, it might make more sense to look around for better quality if it means only still spending <=$20-30.

When it comes to a power bank, you absolutely get what you pay for. Your Google Nexus, specifically, has approximately a 3220 mAh battery. Power banks will typically start around the 5000 mAh range and get higher. If you're to purchase a 10,000 mAh power bank, you will essentially be able to charge your phone 2.5 times before you need to recharge the bank.

You can always get a higher capacity power bank, but with higher capactity comes bigger physical size, longer charge times, and higher cost. For a decent 10,000 mAh power bank, you should expect to pay in the $20 range.

Agree lucas saying. Most power bank on market make fake mah on package or product to attract end users. When we purchase, we should be careful.
It's a truth forever that we get what we pay for.
