Best Power Banks for Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL

Google has sold quite a few phones under their name, but the one phone that they’ve actually fully owned as their own is the Google Pixel. Google naming their smartphone the Google Pixel and claiming it as their own is a very good move as they’ve designed a phone that has some of the best specs when it comes to software and hardware. Sure, Google may have gotten assistance from HTC for the body design of the phone but for about everything else, it’s mostly Google’s choice and they did a great job.

With all the amazing things that the Google Pixel can do with its blazing fast performance, the best smartphone camera on the market at the time of publishing this guide and the beautiful looking AMOLED display; the battery capacity of the Pixel can burn out quite quickly. It’s not really the smartphone’s fault, as there are two versions with their being the Google Pixel that has a 2,770mAh battery capacity and then there’s the larger Google Pixel XL that has a 3,450mAh battery capacity.

Even though the Google Pixel does use a Qualcomm SnapDragon Processor it’s not Quick Charge compatible and even though that kind of is a letdown, the Google Pixel does still use USB-C  and it’s able to charge at a 18W charging speed. We mentioned how the power consumption can become quite high when it comes to using a Google Pixel and the best solution to keep using this awesome phone is by having a power bank and that is why we’ve created a guide to knowing what the best power banks for the Google Pixel are.

These portable chargers are able to charge your Google Pixel near or at its max charging speed, so let’s get started to see what options you’ve got.

Tronsmart 10,400mAh Presto Power Bank

This Tronsmart 10,400mAh power bank is one of the best portable chargers to use with your Google Pixel. Its 10,400mAh power capacity is able to charge your Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL to its full power at least twice. The charging power with this power bank is also really good, that said, this Tronsmart charger and basically most of the chargers within this guide, you’re going to need a USB-C to USB-C charging cable to make the most of the charging speed to your Pixel.

There are two output ports on this power bank, with there being a Quick Charge 3.0 and a USB-C port that can also be used as an output. We know that seeing a Quick Charge USB port on a portable charger is an awesome thing and it’s tempting to use your Google Pixel with it and you can; it’s just that it won’t charge your Pixel as closely to its max power as the USB-C will on this charger.

When you use a USB-C to USB-C cable with the USB-C port to charge your Pixel, you’re able to get a charging speed of 15W which translates over to 5V/3.0A and this comes close to recharging the Google Pixel as its max power. The USB-C port is also used as an input port and it has a 5V/3.0A recharging speed and when it comes to recharging this Tronsmart power bank it’s best to use a Quick Charge or a 3 Amp USB wall charger to recharge it at its max charging speed.

With all of its amazing power abilities, the Tronsmart power bank is also very compact with a length of 6.2 inches and a thickness of 0.7 inches, which means that you can hold this charger or fit it into a pocket.

Anker PowerCore 13000 C

The Anker PowerCore 13000 C is one of Anker’s newest portable chargers and they released it for a good reason. It has a 13,000mAh power capacity and that’s enough power to charge the Google Pixel to its full power about three times, and you can use the power capacity to charge other devices at the same time too. That’s because this charger has two USB ports, so you can charge your Pixel and another device at the same time.

The charging speed of each of the ports is 5V/3.0A and that’s enough power to charge a Google Pixel near its max power. That said, the individual charging speed of each port is really good, but the overall output of the power bank is 15W, which is 5V/3.0A. As a result of having a 15W max output, if you’re using both of the ports the same time, you’re not able to take advantage of a 5V/3.0A speed with a single port as the power output is split. So it’s best to charge your Google Pixel alone to take advantage of the most powerful charging speed that this PowerCore 13000 C has.

Last great part that we wanted to mention is the amazingly small form factor of this power bank. As it has a length of 3.8 inches and a thickness of 0.8 inches. It’s with these dimensions that will allow you to place this 13,000mAh power bank into your pocket and also hold it while you’re charging your devices too.

That said, this power capacity isn’t only meant for charging a smartphone numerous times but can also be useful for charging other devices such as tablets or laptops to their full power with this RAVPower portable charger.

This is quite a major thing as there are very few low capacity portable chargers that feature a single USB-C port but here it is.
