#1: Anker PowerCore 10000 with Quick Charge 3.0

Anker is known to be one of the best charging electronic companies and this rings very true when it comes to their power banks because if not all, most of their portable chargers offer great quality. This goes for their power capacity, the conversion rate of the power capacity, charging speeds, build quality and overall aesthetic of their portable chargers.

In this case, this Anker PowerCore 10000 is one of their very popular power banks because it’s able to bring a strong package when it comes to charging a Galaxy S7. With that said, it’s important to know that there are 3 variations of the Anker PowerCore 10000.

Here are 3 Different Versions of the Anker PowerCore 10000

There’s the Normal Anker PowerCore 10000, then the Anker PowerCore 10000 with Quick Charge 3.0 and then there’s the Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 QC that uses Cooling Technology and also uses Quick Charge 3.0.

What version of the Anker PowerCore 10000 is best to use with the Samsung Galaxy S7?

The plain Anker PowerCore 10000 is best to used with standard charging devices, meaning devices that aren’t compatible with Quick Charge technology.

With that said, the PowerCore 10000 with QC 3.0 and the PowerCore Speed are the best versions to use with the Galaxy S7. Both of them have Quick Charge 3.0 tech that’s going to charge your Galaxy S7 at its max charging and that means that it’ll Output 5-6V-3A | 6-9V/2A | 9-12V/1.5A of charging speeds. Also, important to know that the Anker PowerCore 10000 in general just has a single charging port which means that you’ll only be able to charge a single device at a time; which is another reason why it’s one of the best power banks for the Galaxy S7 because it’s so small.

So small that is can fit into a pocket, or you can hold it in your hand while you’re charging your smartphones.

How’s the Conversion of Power of the Quick Charge 3.0 and PowerCore Speed

Although there is a small but significant difference between the Quick Charge 3.0 version and PowerCore Speed and that would be the Output power capacity that you can actually use. When you’re using Quick Charge charging with the Anker PowerCore 10000 Quick Charge 3.0, then the conversion is quite bad at 50% and that means you’ll be receiving 5,000mAh of power capacity.

On the other hand, the Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 QC is able to have a conversion rate of 70% because of its cooling technology and that means you’ll receive about 6,000mAh-7,000mAh of Output power capacity.

#2: EasyAcc 16,750mAh MegaCharge Quick Charge Power Bank

EasyAcc is a brand that has a few portabel chargers on the market, but at teh same time, we consider them to be one of the best brands to purchase a power bank from. That’s beaise most of their portable chargers feature something that is very useful. This EasyAcc MegaCharge portable charger is one of them.

This charger has a 16,750mAh that canc charge a Gaalxy S7 to full power a few times over. Even though it’s a good amount of power capacity, we don’t think of it as a high power capacity just yet. The charging from this MegaCharge portable charger is done through two USB-A ports. One of the ports uses Quick Charge which can charge your Galaxy S7 at its max charging speed. The other port uses a standard charging speed of 5V/3.0A. Recharging for this EasyAcc portabel charger is another powerful part, and basically what makes this power bank so special.

Special? Yeah, well that’s because there are two input ports to recharge this power bank. It has a Micro-USB and a USB-C input port. The USB-C input port has a max recharge rate of 5V/3.0A and the Micro-USB input port has a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A. Both of the input ports can be used at the same time and that will result in a 5A recharge speed. That fast recharging speed will result in a 3.5 hour recharge time if you have the power bank at empty.

#3: Anker PowerCore+ 13400

 

Another portable charger from Anker is their PowerCore+ 13400 power bank. This is a power bank that you’re going to want to purchase if you’re looking for an upgrade from the first PowerCore 10000 charger that we mentioned. So it has a 13,400mAh power capacity that can charge most smartphones about three times if that’s all you’re using his power bank for. Another difference with this charger is that it uses two USB-A ports.

One of the ports uses Quick Charge and the other standard port has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A. Recharging this power bank is done through a  Micro-USB input port, but the only real flaw with this power bank is the recharging because it doesn’t use Quick Charge to recharge. Instead, the PowerCore+ 13400 portable charger has a recharge speed of 5V/1.5A.

The build quality of this power bank is great because it’s all made out of Aluminum since it’s from Anker’s PowerCore+ series of chargers.

#4: Crave PLUS 10,000mAh Slim Power Bank with Quick Charge and USB-C

 

When it comes to mini portable chargers, they’re one of the most used types of power banks on the market. As they’re just so easy to take anywhere that you want because of their small size and lightweight. One common thing with most mini power banks is that they tend to have slow charging speeds and low capacities. This Crave PLUS portable charger is proof that a mini power bank doesn’t really mean having a low power capacity.

That’s because this charger has a 10,000mAh power capacity that can charge most smartphones to their full power about two times. However, the charging form this Crave power bank also the better part of the charging experience. There are two output charging ports with this power bank. It has a Quick Charge port that can charge the Galaxy S7 at its max charging speed. There’s also a USB-C port that can be used with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable to charge USB-C compatible devices at 3A.

#5: Eighty Plus 10,000mAh Power Bank with USB-C

We think this Eighty Plus power bank is one of the best power banks for the Galaxy S7 because of the minimal but VERY useful charging features it has.

It has the must have Quick Charge 3.0 charging port that you can use to charge your S7 at its max charging speed. Then there’s the USB-C charging port and Micro-USB port.

The Micro-USB port is just an Input port to be used for recharging if you only have a Micro-USB charging cable. With that said, if you have a USB-C charging cable the possibilities open up with the USB-C charging port because by using a USB-C to USB-C charging cable, you can use the USB-C charging port as an Output port; this will result in being able to recharge compatible USB-C smartphones and even Laptops at the same time you’re charging your Galaxy S7.

Also, if you use a USB-C to USB-A charging cable and have a Quick Charge wall charger, then you can fully recharge the Eighty Plus power bank within 3.5-4 hours. Of course, if you don’t have a USB-C cable or Quick Charge wall charger, that’s alright because you can just use the Micro-USB Input port that is conveniently available.

#6: Tronsmart 10,400mAh Power Bank

You’ve noticed the trend by now, lots of these power banks that use Quick Charge 3.0 also have USB-C charging ports. This is because USB-C is a type of charging that is perfect to use in tandem with Quick Charge

A Power Bank Built on Prowess

This Tronsmart Presto power bank is very minimal and that’s a good thing. It has Quick Charge 3.0 charging port and a USB-C charging port. Of course, you’d use your Galaxy S7 or any other smartphone with the Quick Charge 3.0 port and you can also use the USB-C port to charge smartphones and other USB-C compatible devices like a MacBook.

To use the USB-C port as an Output you need a USB-C to USB-C charging cable, and the USB-C port has an Output charging port of 5V/3.0A.

The Best Larger Capacity Power Bank for Galaxy S7

#7:  MGCool 16,000mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge 3.0

Not we’re entering a high capacity range to charge your Galaxy S7 with and these power banks are going to prove to be more useful in terms of longevity because they can give more full charges.

A Higher Power Capacity for More Charges for your Galaxy S7

In this case, this MGCool power bank has an initial power capacity of 16,000mh and with its use of two fast charging technologies like using a Quick Charge 3.0 charging port and a USB-C charging port too; then the conversion can suffer quite a bit. This will result in a usable Output power capacity about 10,000mAh. This is really good, though, considering that you can charge a Galaxy S7 to its full power about 3 times when this MGCool power bank is at its max power.

There’s Quick Charge 3.0 charging charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones and a USB-C Output port that can charge USB-C compatible devices.

Quite the Strong Build

Even though the normal thing is that USB-C ports can be used to recharge power banks, that’s not the case here and instead, you must you use the Micro-USB input port to recharge the MGCool power bank. Other than that, its powerful charging options the MGCool power bank has great build quality with about 3/4 of the power bank being covered in rubber to withstand drops and just a little water on the rubber side.

#8: Tqka 10,000mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge and USB-C Input

 

This Tqka 10,000mAh power bank is one of the best power banks that you can for the Galaxy S7 because of its simplicty and because you might just upgrade to the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S9. The reason that we’re saying that is beacuse this charger uses two input ports. There’s a Micro-USB and USB-C input. You can only use one of the input ports at a time, but the great thing about both of them is that they use Quick Charge. So when you use a Quick Charge USB wall charger to recharge this power bank through either of the input ports, then that wil result in Quick Charge recharging speeds.

Also, just so you know why this power bank is great for using for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy 8 and 9 is because the Galaxy S7 uses a Micro-USB to charge while the 8 and 9 use a USB-C input port.

There’s single output port on this power bank and that would be the USB-A port that uses Quick Charge 3.0 to charge compatible devices at their max charging speed.

The Best High Capacity Power Banks for the Galaxy S7

#9: RAVPower 20,100mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge 3.0

pic-12

Now if you want to have lots of full charges for your Galaxy S7 and we meant a lot, then high capacity power banks are the way to go. Such as this RAVPower power bank that has a power capacity of 20,000mAh.

Options for Charging

It has a 3 ways to charge devices from. There’s a Quick Charge 3.0 and AiPower charging port; as well as a USB-C port. With that said, the Quick Charge 3.0 charging port doesn’t exactly have Quick Charge 3.0 charging speeds because the highest that it can charge is 5V/2.4A and the lower the speed goes, then Voltage increases just as Quick Charge should, but the main flaw is that the fastest charging speed of QC 3.0 should be 3.6-6.5V/3.0A.

With that said, the ability to charge 3 devices is quite awesome because you can charge your Galaxy S7 at/near its max charging speed, have another device charging with the AiPower USB port that has a charging of 5V/2.4A and charge a USB-C compatible device by using the USB-C port.

Options for Recharging

There are two ways to recharge the RAVPower power bank, either through its Micro-USB Input port or the USB-C one. The Micro-USB input only recharges the power bank at 5V/2.0A and the USB-C used as an Input is much faster at a recharge speed of 5V/3.0A. As long as you’re using a Quick Charge wall charger when you’re using the USB-C port to recharge the power bank, the recharge time will be short at 5-6 hours. Not bad for a 20,000mAh power bank.

One of the ports on this power bank uses Quick Charge and the other two standard ports have a 5V/2.4A charging speed. The max output of this power bank is 6A.
