Best Power Banks for Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL in 2023

(Last Updated On: October 11, 2023)

The Google Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL are still powerful phones today because the Pixel 4 was released when smartphones were stabilizing in their performance. It’s one of the main reasons new smartphone sales have decreased; consumers don’t need the latest phone with minor improvements and a price jump.

If you still own the Pixel 4, I commend you for resisting the societal pressure of always owning the latest tech. If you’re searching for portable power for charging the Pixel 4, I’ve chosen a few power banks that would work well. It has been a few years since the release of the Pixel 4; you may find the battery is not as good as it once was since batteries degrade over time, and you might be losing battery faster throughout your day. A power bank can fix that problem.

Also, just a heads up, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are compatible with 18W Power Delivery fast charging, so most power banks in the guide will fast charge them,

ROMOSS PEA30 30,000mAh Power Bank

Just starting strong, the ROMOSS PEA30 power bank is a reliable charger with a 30,000mAh battery that can charge the Pixel 4 or the Pixel 4 XL to full power about four times. This is the type of power bank to own if you want to use it for a few days without recharging it. The charging ports are just as good as the capacity, with one 30W Power Delivery USB-C port and two USB-A ports.

The 30W USB-C port on the power bank can fast charge the Google Pixel 4, but not the USB-A ports. In my review of the ROMOSS PEA30 power bank, I found that charging multiple devices simultaneously caused fast charging to slow down, so if you want optimal charging for your Pixel 4, you should charge it alone. Also, to recharge the massive 30,000 battery, you should recharge the power bank via the USB-C port with a 30W PD charger.

iWalk LinkPod USB-C Mini Power Bank

The iWalk LinkPod power bank is one of the simplest; the charger has a 4,800mAh battery to get about one full charge for the Pixel 4. Also, the design and charging speed is excellent because this power bank uses a USB-C connector to charge from, and the connector has a 20W Power Delivery charging rate, so you can fast charge your Pixel 4. In my review of the iWalk LinkPod USB-C power bank, I could recharge it using the USB-C connector or the USB-C port to the side of the power bank.

The USB-C connector can be plugged directly into a USB-C port on a wall charger, so you don’t need a cable to use this power bank.

Baseus 65W Power Bank

The Baseus 65W power bank may have too much power for what you’re looking for. However, chances are that you probably own a USB-C laptop, and if you do, then the higher power from this Basus power bank can be helpful. You can fast charge your Pixel 4 from this Baseus power bank at all times via the USB-C port because even if you’re charging your devices simultaneously, the USB-C port can output 20W of Power Delivery. However, if you’d like to charge a USB-C laptop from the power bank, you have to charge it alone, which makes the USB-C port output 65W, or with one other device charging, which will have the USB-C port outputting 45W.

In my review of the Baseus 65W power bank, I tested recharging via the USB-C port and the micro-USB input port and found the USB-C port to be much faster with its 60W recharge rate. Also, the 20,000mAh battery is enough to charge the Pixel 4 to full power about three times.

iWalk LinkPod Y2 Power Bank

This iWalk LinkPod Y2 power bank is an upgraded version of the other iWalk power bank I mentioned; this one is very similar. This Y2 power bank has a built-in USB-C cable and a higher 9,600mAh battery to charge your Pixel 4 to full power about two times. The built-in cable has an 18W Power Delivery rate to fast charge the Pixel 4. In my review of the iWalk LinkPod Y2 power bank, I could charge from it and recharge from its built-in USB-C cable. That said, there is also a USB-C port to the side of the power bank for recharging.

UGREEN 20W Magnetic Power Bank

The UGREEN 20W Magnetic power bank is an odd one to recommend for charging the Pixel 4 because you can’t magnetically attach the phone to the charging pad. However, you can still place your Pixel on the pad for wireless charging if that’s something you’re looking for with a power bank. Just a warning, though: consumers have complained that the Pixel 4 wireless charging doesn’t work anymore due to Google updates, so test it out first.

If the wireless charging is too slow, you can use the 20W PD USB-C port on the UGREEN power bank to fast charge the Pixel 4. In my review of the UGREEN 20W Magnetic power bank, I could magnetically attach my Note 9 to the charging pad on the power bank because I had a magnetic attachment at the back of my phone.

INIU B2 15W Power Bank

This INIU B2 power bank has a unique design because the charger comes with special cables that are built into the power bank. Three cables come with the charger, and the USB-C to USB-C cable is the one you’ll use to charge the Pixel 4. The INIU power bank has a 15W max output, so you won’t get the fastest charging speed possible, but it has a decent charging rate.

In my review of the INIU B2 power bank, I could use a touch-sensitive button to show the capacity on the screen.

Final thoughts about my choice of Power Banks for the Google Pixel 4

The Google Pixel 4 is still a powerful phone to use all these years later. Sure, it can’t compete with modern phones, but for what it features, most consumers would find that it fits their needs. One thing that does degrade over time, though, is the battery of a phone, but that can be solved with a power bank. Based on your needs, you can go with a high-capacity ROMOSS PEA30 power bank that can last for days or an emergency charger like the iWalk LinkPod; whichever one you use will be reliable for charging the Pixel 4.
