Best Power Banks for Google Pixel 3 XL

The Google Pixel 3 is finally here, after all the rumors and the leaks, the notch is actually real. Most of the community is rather bitter about how the phone came out to be, and we’d be lying if we said that we were roses and peaches about the Pixel 3. The reason for this is because even though it is an upgrade, the Notch is massive, although some could say that’s because of the large front-facing speakers and how there are two cameras at the front.

At the same time, there are others things such as it having no headphone jack and no expandable storage that also might put many people off.

That said, even though the Pixel 3 isn’t what we expected from it, we’re putting that aside, and still want to provide value to those that did purchase the phone from Google. The good news is that the charger is Qi wireless charging compatible and it also makes use of Power Delivery charging.

So if you’re in the market for a Power Delivery portable charger to charge your Pixel 3, then you’ve come to the right place. That’s because we’re going to be going over Power Delivery portable chargers that you should use for the phone. When it comes to Power Delivery charging for the Google Pixel 3, the USB-C Power Delivery port should have an 18W charging rate or higher.

Jackery SuperCharge 18W 10,200mAh Power Delivery Portable Charger

To start out, this is the Jackery SuperCharge 10,200mAh portable charger. So we’re going to first go over power banks that have mid-range power capacities.

With its 10,200mAh power capacity, you’re able to charge the regular Google Pixel 3 with its 2,915mAh battery capacity and the Google Pixel 3 XL with its 3,430mAh battery capacity to full power about two times.

The charging from this power bank can be done through two ports. There’s the USB-C Power Delivery port that has an 18W charging rate and there’s also the USB-A port that has a standard charging rate of 12W (5V/2.4A).

AideaZ 10,000mAh Wireless Charging Power Delivery Portable Charger

Something not power related, but that we found cool is that this power bank makes use of a digital power capacity display. As a result, you get a percentage display and also a notification on whether you’re using Power Delivery, Quick Charge or standard charging power.

AideaZ 20,000mAh Power Delivery Wireless Charging Power Bank

Yet another AideaZ power bank but this time, this is a 20,000mAh model of the previous power bank that we mentioned. So you get double the power capacity to use and as a result, you can potentially charge your Pixel 3 to its full power about four times.

The charging ports on this power bank remain the same, with the same 18W USB-C Power Delivery port and the Quick Charge USB-A port.
