Best Power Banks for iPhone 7

Apple made a big change when it came to the iPhone 7 and that change was removing the headphone jack. The rumors circulated like crazy before the release of the phone but we finally figured out that we were indeed going to have to stop using our wired headphones with their newest smartphone and accept the new standard of wireless audio.

Even though it was quite hard to believe that they would remove such a vital part of the phone, it’s ultimately more useful to use wireless headsets as you don’t have to deal with wires. The same can be said about wall chargers and portable chargers. Wall chargers require that you keep your devices close to the charger and have it stay there until your phone is charged up. While portable charger allows you to roam free.

In the case of chargers though, using a portable charger is a much easier thing to accept and that’s why we’ve chosen the best power banks for the iPhone 7. As using Bluetooth can actually drain the battery faster, so you’re going to want portable power with you so you can keep listening to your music while you’re on the go.

When it comes to the charging speed of the iPhone 7, things are kept quite standard and that’s because the iPhone 7 and any iPhone for that matter isn’t Quick Charge compatible. Of course, the newer iPhone X and iPhone 8 are USB-C Power Delivery compatible, but that’s not what we’re talking about right now. For charging the iPhone 7 at its fastest charging speed, you have to make sure that you get a power bank that has an output charging speed of 5V/2.4A, or if you want to push the charging speed a little further then you should use a USB-C port and use a USB-C to Lightning charging cable to charge your iPhone 7.

Jackery Bolt Power Bank with Two Built-in Charging Cables

The first power bank that we want to recommend for the iPhone 7 is the Jackery Bolt portable charger. This charger doesn’t have the highest power, but it does have a lot of versatility and that’s because it has two built-in charging cables and it has three overall ways to charge your devices.

The two built-in cables with this power banks are a Lighting cable that you’re able to use to charge your iPhone 7 or for any iPhone or iPad that uses Lighting for charging. The other cable is the Micro-USB cable and that’s useful for charging the many Android smartphones that use Micro-USB. That said, if you want to be more up to date when it comes to Android devices with the Jackery Bolt power bank, there’s a Jackery Bolt version that has a 10,050mAh capacity and uses a USB-C cable instead of a Micro-USB cable.

The third output of this power bank is the USB-A port and that’s useful for using any cable that you want. So you’re able to use each of the charging methods all at once or a single at a time. Charging speed with the Lightning cable is 5V/2.4A and can, therefore, can charge your iPhone 7 at its max charging speed. The Micro-USB port has a slow charging rate of 5V/1.0A, and the USB port has a charging rate of 5V/2.4A.  The max output of this charger is 2.4A, so the more devices that you charge at once means that each of the devices will receive is a slower charging rate.

Recharging this power bank is done through the Micro-USB input port which has a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A.

The power capacity of this particular one that we recommend has a power capacity of 6,000mAh and that’s enough to charge the iPhone 7 to its full power about two times, or you can use that extra capacity to charge another phone to its full power too. The size of this portable charger is one of the best parts as it fits three charging methods and a good amount of power in a length of 4.3 inches, a width of 1.9 inches and a thickness of 0.9 inches. It also has a flashlight in case you need to use it.

Anker PowerCore 10000pic-1

One of our most recommends portable charger is the Anker PowerCore 10000. The reason for that is because it’s one of the most optimized standard portable chargers on the market. It has a power capacity of 10,000mAh and so you can very well charge your iPhone to full power with it about 2.5 or 3 times, as long as you’re using the capacity to solely charge your iPhone. You most likely are going to only charge just your iPhone with this as it only uses a single port, and that’s quite strange as most 10,000mAh portable chargers use two ports, but it’s better this way since the capacity is just being focused on a single device at a time.

Charging port with this power bank is very good as the single port outputs a charging speed of 5V/2.4A. So your iPhone 7 will be able to charge at a very fast rate. Recharging is done the rough the Micro-USB input port that has a recharge rate of 5V/2.4A.

It does have a high power capacity of 13,000mAh, and it has two ports with each of the port using a charging speed of 5V/3.0A. So you’re able to charge an iPhone at its max charging rate with either of the ports and you can charge two devices at once with the PowerCore 13000. It also has a smaller size.

Anker PowerCore 5000 Slim

One of the best mini power banks that you can own is slim portable chargers. They basically have all the same attributes from a mini charger but in a slim form factor.

This charger uses a single USB-A port which has a charging rate of 5V/2.0A and the recharging Micro-USB input with this power bank is 5V/2.0A. So it doesn’t have a 2.4A charging rate that can charge your iPhone at its max charging rate but it comes close and most mini power banks have a slower charge rate of 5V/1.0A, so it at least gets close.

The form factor is the main reason that you’re going to get this power bank as it only has a thickness of 0.4 inches so it can easily slide right into a pocket along with your phone and charge it at the same time. It has a curved side that you can use to hold it in your hand and then the opposite side this power bank has ridges where you would place your iPhone so it stays stable while you use and charge your phone at the same time.

Jackery Air 6 Slim Power Bank

The final best power bank that we recommend getting for your iPhone 7 is the Jackery Air 6. This power bank doesn’t have the most power capacity and it actually has some very weak charging.
