OnePlus, a smartphone brand that always impresses, has once again released their new OnePlus 6 phone. Many people are flocking towards their iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones and even though that makes sense, as Apple and Samsung make some of the best on the market, the small brands are also here to compete and OnePlus is one of the brands that always has the latest type of specs with their phones that match the competition and yet their phones are always a whole lot lower priced.
The OnePlus 6 joins the game with a near bezel-less display and yes, it does use a notch but at this point, the notch is kind of necessary because it’s basically inching closer to that bezel-less display. Also, speaking of the display the OnePlus 6 uses an Optic AMOLED display and we find that OnePlus now using an OLED panel for their smartphone’s screen is actually very good. First reason being is that it looks a lot better than an LCD one and the second reason is that the not even leading brands have made it normal such as Apple. The iPhone X is the first iPhone to use an OLED screen.
The OnePlus 6 makes use of the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, and along with it use 8GB of RAM. That’s right, 8GB of RAM and that’s basically double the amount of RAM that most smartphones tend to use. The OnePlus 6 is an absolute beast in the performance department and at the same time, because of that, it’s a smartphone that can run out of power while you’re on the move. The battery of the phone is 3,300mAh and that’s pretty good but at the same time, the use of a 4,000mAh battery would have made more sense.
The best option to keep your OnePlus 6 charged and constantly ready for use is by using a power bank. That’s why we’ve chosen the best power banks for the OnePlus 6. The OnePlus 6 is compatible with OnePlus’ very own Dash Charge and is not Quick Charge compatible. Unfortunately, there are no Dash Charge power banks on the market but we’ve chosen standard power banks that are able to charge the smartphone as fast as standard charging can.
EasyAcc 16,750mAh MegaCharge Power Bank
To start off, this is EasyAcc’s MegaCharge power bank. It’s one of the most innovative power banks that they have, and that’s because of the output and definitely because of the input for recharging. There are two output ports on this power bank. One of the ports uses Quick Charge and the other one is a standard port that has a 5V/3.0A charging speed. If you’re charging a Non-Compatible Quick Charge smartphone with the Quick Charge port, then the Quick Charge port will simply default to a 5V/3.0A charging speed.
Also, a 5V/3.0A charging speed is faster than the standard 5V/2.4A charging rate that most standard ports tend to have, so you’re able to get a slightly faster charging speed with this power bank.
Recharging this MegaCharge power bank can be done through two input ports, and they can be used at the same time. There’s a USB-C input with a recharge rate of 5V/3.0A and there’s also has a Micro-USB input with a 5V/2.0A recharge speed. So if you’re using both of the input ports at the same time, you can recharge this power bank at a 5A recharge speed, and that can result in a 3.5 hour full recharge time. That’s a very short recharge time for a 16,750mAh power capacity.
Speaking of the power capacity, this power bank is able to charge the OnePlus 6 to its full power about four times if that’s all you’re using this power bank for.

PowerCore 13000 C
This is the PowerCore 13000 C, a power bank that comes from one of the best charging electronics brands on the market known as, Anker. This PowerCore 13000 C charger of theirs is actually quite a regular power bank, but at the same time, it has quite a lot of innovation. That’s because this charger uses a single USB-C input port, and that’s basically to show that the power bank is normalizing the usage of USB-C with power banks.
What’s even more standard is that this power bank does not make use of Quick Charge, as most power banks that tend to use a USB-C port in the first place almost always have a Quick Charge port. Or if they do use a USB-C port, the USB-C port doubles as an input and output.
The two USB-A output ports on this power bank each have a 5V/3.0A charging speed. The form factor of Anker power banks is one of the best parts about them and that’s because they’re almost always small and very easy to take anywhere that you want. That’s definitely true for this PowerCore C, as it has a length of 3.8 inches, a width of 3.1 inches and thickness of this charger is 0.9 inches, so it can easily just fit into your pocket.
The 13,000mAh power capacity is enough to power charge your OnePlus 6 to its full power about three times if that’s all you’re using to charge with this power bank.
