Currently considering a flashlight that can act as powerbank. Just something to carry in the day bag/pack, and keep the phone topped off, together with some spare batteries.

One is MecArmy MOT10, uses 18650s has micro usb for charging, and full usb for charging other devices.

Another few options from Rofis, the mr30, mr50 or mr70

The first two use 21700 lion effectively making the flashlight a 5000mAh powerbank.

One thing that is true of all lithium batteries is that if you're going to store them for awhile without using them, they have the best shelf life around 60% full. Not as useful for unexpected use that way, however.
Santa brought me the Sherpa 100ac- it's everything I expected, except for one thing- there's no 12V output, so I can't use my 12V ni-cad charger with it. But I've never actually used that option while camping, I have enough AA's and AAA's pre-charged that it's not an issue.
