Best BlackBerry KEYone/ DTEK 50 / DTEK 60 / PRIV Chargers

BlackBerry Limited has been through quite the roller coaster for a few years back it was dominating the cellphone ecosystem and seemed poised to continue on a path of overwhelming success.

However, that popularity has seen a drastic decline as new competitors arose, creating faster, sleeker, and even larger smartphones.

But despite their waning market share, Blackberrys are still owned by many businesses and government users that prefer the security and enterprise-level encryption that only they can offer.

One of the main aspects that we focus on here at Charger Harbor is the charging capabilities of smartphones and in this article, we’re going to be talking about BlackBerry Limited’s current phone lineup.

That includes the BlackBerry KEYone, DTEK 50, DTEK 60 and the PRIV. One of the most interesting things about these phones is their battery capacity and also the fact that each of them is Quick Charge compatible.

BlackBerry Smartphone Batteries

BlackBerry KEYone – 3,505mAh Battery Capacity – USB Type-C Input – Quick Charge 3.0

BlackBerry DTEK60 – 3,000mAh Battery Capacity – USB Type-C Input – Quick Charge 3.0

BlackBerry DTEK50 – 2,610mAh Battery Capacity – Micro-USB Input – Quick Charge 2.0

BlackBerry PRIV – 3,410mAh Battery Capacity – Micro-USB Input – Quick Charge 2.0

As you can see, most of these BlackBerry smartphones have high power capacities that are well into the 3,000mAh range and all of them are able to use Quick Charge.

Fast Charging Compatible

Two of them also use USB-C for charging while the other two use the older Micro-USB standard. Since BlackBerry phones are equipped with these technologies, that means you have to have the right equipment for the best charging experience when it comes time to recharge these smartphones.

That is why Charger Harbor has brought together the best chargers to use with your KEYone, DTEK50, DTEK60 or PRIV.

All of these chargers adhere to the tech that the smartphones use such as Quick Charge and USB-C so you’ll be able to utilize them to their full potential.

Portable Chargers for BlackBerry Phones

A portable charger is going to be useful for lots of devices in general, such as the ones we covered in the guides for the Nintendo Switch, and also for Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 3.

That said, knowing what the best chargers are for these BlackBerry smartphones can be very helpful because of their large batteries and the fast charging tech that they feature.

Anker PowerCore 10000 Speed QC

One of Anker’s best selling power banks on the market is the PowerCore 10000 and the best reason for that is because of its size.

This charger has a power capacity of 10,000mAh as you could probably tell by the name, however as most 10,000mAh power banks are on the larger side, this PowerCore charger is actually very small. It’s so small that it’s basically the same size as a 5,000mAh portable charger.

Mid-Range Capacity with a Mini Form Factor

That means that you can basically fit this power bank into your pocket or you can hold it in a single hand while you’re using your BlackBerry smartphone.

A power capacity of 10,000mAh is able to charge any of your BlackBerry smartphones to its full power about two times.

Since there’s a single USB port that uses Quick Charge you’ll be able to use as much power capacity that it has, but because the conversion of power worsens when you use Quick Charge due to its faster-charging speeds, you’re left with a lower output power capacity to actually use to charge your BlackBerry.

This is one of the best chargers for taking with you on-the-go as it has Quick Charge 3.0 for fast charging and a small form factor too.

Specs of the Anker PowerCore Speed 10,000 QC:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 10,000mAh             Real Capacity: 8,000mAh
  • Output:   Max Output: 5-8 V/3A | 8-10 V/2.4 A | 10-12 V/ 2 A

  • Size: 3.9 x 2.5 x 0.9 inches
  • Weight: 7 Ounces

Aukey 16,000mAh Power Bank

If you’re searching for more power with a portable charger then we highly recommend this Aukey power bank. It has a 16,000mAh power capacity that is able to charge a BlackBerry smartphone to its full power if you’re solely just charging the phone. That’s because this charger has two USB ports.

One of the ports features Quick Charge 3.0 and the other port utilizes Aukey’s AiPower tech, a fancy way of saying that it has a 5V/2.4A charging speed that is able to charge most standard devices at their max charging capability.

Slim Form Factor

What makes this power bank even better is its form factor.

With most portable chargers that have higher ranges of power capacity, they usually become bulkier. However, this charger has a slim form factor and you can basically fit it into your pocket if you wanted to with its 0.65-inch thickness. The same can’t be said about many other 20,000mAh power capacities.

Specs of the Aukey 16,000mAh Power Bank:

  • Capacity: 16,000mAh
  • Output:

Quick Charge Port: 3.6V-6.5V/3.0A | 6.5V-9V/2.0A | 9V-12V/1.5A

Standard Port: 5V/2.4A

  • Input:    5V/2.0A Via Micro-USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: Single Changing LED Light
  • Size: 6.5 x 2.9 x 0.7 inches
  • Weight: 12 Ounces

Anker PowerCore Speed 20000

Going to an even higher power capacity range, this PowerCore Speed 20000 is part of Anker’s PowerCore 20100 chargers with there being a standard 20100 series and another that uses USB-C.

What makes this PowerCore Speed perfect to use with your BlackBerry smartphone is its use of a high power capacity and charging power. The power capacity is able to charge your phone about 5 times to its full power if you’re only charging it with the power bank. Then there are the two USB ports.

One of the USB charging ports uses Quick Charge 3.0 that can charge your BlackBerry phone at its max charging speed.

Quick Charge Output & Input

Then there’s the PoweriQ port that has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A to charge most standard devices at their max charging speed. The recharging of this PowerCore Speed charger is just as impressive as its output charging for your devices.

The Micro-USB input for this power bank uses Quick Charge 3.0 because it has a charging speed of 5V/2.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A. That said, it’s important that you use a Quick Charge USB wall charger recharge this power bank at its max charging speed.

By using a Quick Charge wall charger, this 20,000mAh power bank is able to recharge to its full power within 3.5 hours, which is a lot shorter than the usual 8 hours that most 20,000mAh power banks tend to take.

To put it all together it is a very comfortable size that might be quite long at 7 inches but the PowerCore Speed 20000 is only 0.7 inches in thickness. So it can easily be held or placed into a back pocket if you have one that’s large enough.

Specs of the PowerCore Speed 20000:

  • Capacity:   20,000mAh
  • Output:

Quick Charge Port: 5-8V ⎓ 3A  | 8-10V ⎓ 2.4A  | 10-12V ⎓ 2A    | Standard Charging Speed for Quick Charge port: 5V/2.0A

Standard Port: 5V/2.4A

  • Input:5V ⎓ 2A | 9V ⎓ 2A | 12V ⎓ 1.5A
  • LED Power Indicators: 10 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators
  • Size: 7.4 x 2.8 x 0.7 inches
  • Weight: 12.6 Ounces

Anker PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C

pic-1

Just a small mention to the PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C power bank as it has a USB-C port that can be used as an output to charge your devices. So the BlackBerry KEYone and the DTEK60 are able to charge using a USB-C to USB-C charging cable with PowerCore+ 20100 as they’re compatible with USB Type-C.

There are also two USB-A ports on this power bank that each have a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and the max output of the charger is 6A.

Aukey 5,000mAh USB-C Power Bank

This Aukey power bank is primarily meant for the BlackBerry KEYone and the DNET60 as they’re the ones that use USB-C to charge and this power bank only uses USB-C. That’s the great part about this portable charger too, as it’s one of the few low capacity power banks that solely use a USB-C for its charging.

The USB-C port has a charging speed of 5V/3.0A, and even though it doesn’t have Quick Charge, it’s still a fast charging speed.

The same USB-C port is used to recharge the power bank too and it has a recharge speed of 5V/2.0A, meaning the recharge time of this 5,000mAh power bank is 3 hours.

Of course, the main reason that this charger is included in this guide is because of its Mini factor as it has a 4-inch length and a 1-inch thickness only, just as Aukey’s regular 5,000mAh power bank has.

Jackery Max Power Bank

Jackery Max Power Bank

It might seem like we’re going overboard by including the Jackery Max power bank in this guide but at the same it makes sense. This power bank has a 26,000mAh power capacity and that’s enough to charge a BlackBerry smartphone to its full power about 6 times.

High Capacity & Three Powerful Ports

The capacity of this charger is going to last quite a while but it wouldn’t be as impressive if it weren’t for its 3 USB ports.

There are two standard 5V/2.4A USB ports and also a Quick Charge 3.0 port to charge your BlackBerry smartphone at its max charging speed.

The important thing to know about this power bank is its max output of 6 Amps, because if you’re charging 3 devices at once, then you most likely won’t be able to use the Quick Charge power to its full potential.

As a result, it’s best to charge two devices at once so you’re not splitting up the max output power too much.

Comes with a Wall Charger

This power bank doesn’t use dots for telling you its power capacity, instead, it has an LCD display that shows you the battery power that’s left in a percentage. Recharging for 26,000mAh power capacity isn’t the best to be completely honest as it has a single Micro-USB input port that has a 5V/2.0A recharging speed.

Alternative for Faster Recharging Power Bank

If you’re searching for a power bank that has a faster recharging speed but still uses quite a high power capacity and many USB ports, then you should consider EasyAcc’s Monster power bank.

This version has 4 USB charging ports with one of the ports using Quick Charge 3.0 and the recharging is really good as it uses two Micro-USB input ports. As a result, you’re able to recharge its 20,000mAh capacity to full power within just 6 hours.

USB Wall Chargers for BlackBerry

USB wall chargers are likely the first charging device that comes to mind when you have to charge your devices. As these types of chargers are very easy to use and also very powerful. Since lots of them feature charging technologies such as Quick Charge and also USB-C.

Anker PowerPort 2 with Quick Charge 3.0

If you want the simplest experience when it comes to using a wall charger then you should consider this PowerPort 2 from Anker. Very similar to Anker’s standard PowerPort 2 wall charger, the only real difference with this one is that it uses Quick Charge along with its a PoweriQ port.

Minimal but Powerful. Other Options from Anker, Too.

Thanks to that, you can have your Quick Charge compatible device charging at its max speed as well as being able to charge a standard device at its max speed.

Anker also has a 3-Port USB wall charger called the PowerPort+ 3 and this one has three USB ports with one of them featuring Quick Charge 3.0. So you can charge your BlackBerry smartphone at its max charging speed while charging two other devices all at once.

Another one of their wall chargers is the PowerPort Speed 4 that has four USB ports with one of the ports using Quick Charge and the other three ports having a 5V/2.4A charging speed.

Both the PowerPort+ 3 and the PowerPort Speed 4 USB wall chargers are a few of your best options for Quick Charge usage before getting into the range of USB Charging stations.

Specs of the Anker PowerPort 2 with Quick Charge 3.0:

  • Output:

Quick Charge Port: 5V/3.0A | 9V/2.0A | 12V/1.5A

  • LED Power Indicators: None
  • Size: 2.6 x 2.6 x 1.1 inches

Aukey 6-Port USB Charging Stations with Two Quick Charge Ports

A USB charging station is very similar to a USB wall charger, it’s just that they have a lot more ports and use an external power cord instead of having a built-in AC Adapter.

The above Aukey USB charging station uses 6 USB ports and two of the ports use Quick Charge. This is one of the great capabilities of charging stations as they can use many USB ports and use more than just a single port with fast charging tech.

Fast Charge Two Compatible Smartphones and More

In this case, you’re able to charge a device like your BlackBerry smartphone at its max charging speed and you can also have another Quick Charge compatible smartphone to charge at its max speed too, all at once.

While Quick Charge devices are charging, you can also charge standard devices with the standard USB ports as the Max Output is 9.6A.

Tronsmart 2-Port USB Wall Charger

Car Chargers for the BlackBerry Smartphones

PowerDrive+ 1 Car Charger

If you want the simplest form of car charging for your BlackBerry then we highly recommend this PowerDrive+ 1 car charger because it has a single USB port that uses Quick Charge 3.0.

That said, Anker has two other car chargers that are able to utilize Quick Charge and also have more USB ports.
