Recommendations for external battery packs for phones?

Next week I will be shelving my heavily used BlackBerry 9790 in favour of a Nexus 4. I know for a fact I will not be seeing the same great battery life (I get 1.5-2 days of my normal use or a full weekend if I try hard)

So I have been thinking about getting an external battery pack for emergencies. Specifically I think I want one I can throw in my coat pocket and forget about it until I need it. I am thinking something like this fits the bill:­/Anker%C2%AE­-Astro­-Mini­-2600mAh­-Ultr...

That would give me one full charge of the phone, and is about the size of chapstick, which I carry anyways.

Admittedly, I don't know much about good brands or products in this segment of accessories, so if anyone has input on what they use I would appreciate it greatly.
