Nokia is a brand that many of us know very well and there are two main reasons for that. The first reason that many of us know about Nokia phones is that they were used a lot in the early 2000s and it was basically the most widespread type of “smartphone” that you could get.
However, today most of us know Nokia smartphones as being practically indestructible in comparison to smartphones today. As there are tons of jokes about how durable older Nokia smartphones were and the truth is that they were very strong but other than that, the old ones hold no place today.
Of course, Nokia has made their way into the modern age and that’s proven with their latest smartphone flagship known as the Nokia 8. This phone has all the latest tech features that you would expect from top-tier smartphones.
New and Improved
As it has the fastest Snapdragon 835 processor that’s currently available, has 6GB of RAM, a large 3,090mAh battery capacity and finally it uses USB-C for charging.
The charging power behind this new Nokia 8 smartphone is perhaps what we’re most interested in at Charger Harbor, as this charger uses USB-C for charging and along with it, it has Quick Charge 3.0 compatibility.
As a result, you’re able to recharge this smartphone at a much faster charging rate than regular chargers are able to do.
The main problem when it comes to faster charging smartphones that use Quick Charge is that users are confused as you which charger is best to use for their device. That’s why here at Charger Harbor, we’ve created a guide specifically for the Nokia 8 to get the best chargers for it. So let’s get started.
Best Portable Chargers for the Nokia 8
A portable charger is definitely something that you’re going to want to purchase and the reason for that is because smartphones are something that we constantly carry throughout the day. Most of us aren’t always next to an AC wall outlet and neither do we all carry around USB wall chargers.
Keeping a portable charger with us can be a great asset as you can charge your Nokia 8 while you’re out doing things and not have to worry about getting home and charging your smartphone.
Tqka 10,400mAh Portable Charger with Quick Charge 3.0 and USB-C
This Tqka portable charger has one of the best power capacities that you can get for your Nokia 8 and this basically is true for all other smartphones with the same capacity ranges. As this charger has a power capacity of 10,400mAh and that’s enough power to charge your Nokia 8 to its full power about two times. Another thing that makes this charger a great match for the Nokia is the charging.
Only One Output
This charger has just a single charging output port and even though this sounds like a bad thing, the use of a single output port is actually quite good when it comes to this power bank.
That’s because you’re able to focus the entire power capacity of this charger on a single device and as a result, you can get the most power capacity for the Nokia 8. The single USB-A charging port on this power bank uses Quick Charge 3.0 and so it’s able to charge you Nokia 8 at its max charging speed.
Two Input Ports
Recharging this Tqka power bank is quite versatile as it uses two input ports for charging. It has a USB-C and Micro-USB input port with them both being able to use Quick Charge 3.0. You can only use each of the input ports once at a time, but as long as you’re using a Quick Charge USB wall charger to recharge this power bank then you’re going to be able to recharge it very quickly.
The use of a USB-C input port is very convenient when it comes to using this charger with your Nokia 8 as you can use the same cable to recharge this power bank.

Getting a high capacity portable charger is always a good option if you want more longevity with how long you want to use your power bank before needing to recharge it. That’s why we’re recommending this Jackery Thunder X portable charger.
It all the things that you really could ask for from a high capacity portable charger, as it has a 20,100mAh power capacity that can charge your Nokia 8 to full power about 4.5 times if you’re focusing the capacity on just charge your Nokia 8.
Standard High Capacity Charging
Charging with most high capacity portable chargers is superb and that is definitely the case here as this charger has two powerful USB-A charging ports. With one port using Quick Charge 3.0 that can charge your Nokia 8 at its max charging speed.
The other port has a standard port which has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A, which can charge most standard devices at their max speed.
Recharging this power bank is done through a Micro-USB input port that has a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A, and it’s quite good, but admittedly we wish that it was faster such as 5V/2.4A charging or Quick Charge for recharging this power bank.

Another portable charger that has the same power capacity as the Jackery power bank that we mentioned above is RAVPower’s 20,100mAh charger. So you’re going to have more than enough power capacity to charge your smartphone to its full power about four times.
What makes this charger quite different than the Jackery portable charger is the charging capabilities.
It has two USB-A charging ports, with one using Quick Charge 3.0 and the other one having a charging speed of 5V/2.4A. There is also another output port on this power bank and that would be the USB-C port which can be used with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable to charge USB-C compatible devices such as your Nokia 8.
That said, we still recommend using the Quick Charge USB-A port on this power bank for your Nokia 8 because it’ll provide the fastest charging possible for it, as the USB-C port outputs 5V/3.0A.

Still Convenient to Use the USB-C Port
You can only use a single input at a time, so we recommend using the Micro-USB input port for the fastest recharge rate. That said, it’s still highly convenient to use the USB-C port to recharge this power bank as you’re going to use the same cable that you use to charge your Nokia 8 to recharge this power bank.
