Best Power Banks for iPhone X

The iPhone X is the turning point for Apple and that’s because it does quite a lot of things differently than other iPhones. Sure, we realize there’s the iPhone 8 and that’s new too, but at the same time, it’s not really anything new, just a few upgrades from the previous Apple iPhone. What the iPhone X brings is a whole different game as it has a display that takes up nearly the entire side of the phone and so Apple has indeed joined the arena of bezeless smartphones. Another great part about the display is that it’s an AMOLED display and this is the first iPhone to have an AMOLED screen and even though AMOLED screens with smartphones isn’t anything new, it’s definitely something that is very welcoming.

Not only is the awesome screen the only new part, but it’s also the specs, the build quality, and also the ability to basically do more all at the same time. With such a powerful smartphone, Apple has installed a 2,716mAh battery. It’s one of the higher battery capacities for the iPhone lineup and it comes as a surprise as Apple isn’t always the one to put large batteries into their phones. That said, even with such a high battery capacity, we at Charger Harbor still think it’s always a perfect idea to have a power bank with you while you’re on-the-go.

That’s why we’ve chosen the best power banks for the iPhone X, so you’re able to use one of the best and turning point iPhones ever released. That said, just something to know is that the iPhone X is actually capable of fast charging though USB-C Power Delivery. That’s why within this guide we’ve chosen a few power banks that use Power Delivery as you’re able to charge your iPhone X at its max charging speed that way.

RAVPower 20100 Portable Charger with Quick Charge 3.0 and USB Type-C

The first power bank that we have to recommend is on the high capacity side and it’s quite a good idea to have a power bank with a high capacity as you’re able to get a longer usage of the charger before it needs a recharge. In this case, with this RAVPower’s 20,100mAh power bank, you’re able to charge your iPhone X to its full power about 5 times. That said, these full charge estimates are assuming that you’re solely charging your iPhone X alone and we know that charging just your smartphone with power banks like this won’t always be the case.

That’s because there are a total of three output ports with this power bank. There are two USB-A ports, with one using Quick Charge 3.0 and the other port has a standard 5V/2.4A charging speed. The third output port is the USB-C port that you’re going to want to use to charge your iPhone X with and that’s because it has a charging speed fo 5V/3.0A. We realize of course, that the iPhone X does not take USB-C and that’s why you’re going to need a USB-C to Lightning cable to charge your iPhone with the USB-C port this power bank has and also for other power banks that we have within this guide.

Two Input Ports with one Featuring Quick Charge

Then there’s the recharging with this power bank which is quite versatile because you have two ports to recharge the power bank with. They can only be used once at a time but each of the input ports still offers a fast recharge speed. There’s the Micro-USB input port that uses Quick Charge 3.0 and there’s also the USB-C port that has a recharge rate of 5V/3.0A. We recommend using the Micro-USB input for recharging this RAVPower portable charger along with a Quick Charge USB wall charger as it’ll recharge the power bank at the fastest speed.

Jackery Bolt 6,000mAh Power Bank with Built-in Cables

One of the best power banks that you can own are ones that have cables which are built right into them. That’s because with most regular power banks you have to bring your own charging cable to use with the charger and that can be a hassle at times. When a charger has built-in cables, it’s just one less thing to worry about. That’s why we’re recommending this Jackery Bolt power bank to use with your iPhone X.

This portable charger actually has two cables and a USB port which makes it very reliable to use in nearly any situation. The two built-in cables are a Lightning cable and the other one is a Micro-USB cable. The use of a USB port is very helpful as you’re able to use any charging cable with the power bank if you want, such as a USB-C to USB-A cable.

The max output of the charger is 5V/2.4A, and even though it’s not 3 Amps, it’s still quite good. That said, the more devices that you charge at the same time will mean that the max charge rate will decrease, so if you want to charge your iPhone X as fast as possible with this power bank, you should charge it alone. Along with its awesome charging capabilities, this Jackery Bolt power bank still manages to fit a LED flashlight onto the side.

Overall, it’s a great all-in-one power bank that may not have the highest power capacity as it has 6,000mAh or the fastest charging, but it’s one of the most versatile on the market that you’ll find useful or someone else might find useful while you’re on-the-go.

EasyAcc 6,000mAh Power Bank with Built-in Lightning Cable

If you want more of a straightforward power bank for your iPhone X then there’s this EasyAcc 6,000mAh power bank that has just a single built-in Lightning cable. There’s also a USB port that can be used with any charging cable too. The power capacity of this EasyAcc power bank is the same as the above Jacker Bolt power bank, which is 6,000mAh. So you’re going to be getting about 1.5 full charges from this power bank.

The max charging output for this power bank is 5V/2.0A and so you should definitely just charge a single device at a time if you want to charge your smartphone at the fastest rate. That said, the good news is that the recharge rate is the same as the output, so you should use a 2 Amp USB wall charger (or higher) when it does come to recharging the power bank.

Very Portable with its Slim Form Factor

Another main factor other than its more minimal charging approach is its slim form factor. This charger only has a length of 5.3 inches and a thickness of 0.5 inches. As a result, you can fit this charger into your a pocket quite easily or you can stack your iPhone X on top of it while charging and use your phone at the same time. Weight isn’t a problem here either as the power bank only weighs 5.2 ounces. Last, but not least, this charger also has a LED flashlight which can be helpful if you ever need it.

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 6,000mAh             Output Capacity: 5,200mAh

Anker PowerCore 10000

Perhaps one of the most purchased power banks on Amazon is this Anker PowerCore 10000 portable charger and for good reasons too. This PowerCore 10000 charger doesn’t do anything too special, but it does a lot normal things right at an optimal level. For example, this charger has a 10,000mAh power capacity which is quite a lot and can charge your iPhone X to full power about 2.5 times. Yet, even with that capacity, it has a length of only 3.6 inches and a thickness of 0.8 inches which can result in the best portable experience that a 10,000mAh power bank can offer.

Another part that’s quite uncommon with other 10,000mAh power bank is that this one uses just a single USB port. This is actually a very good design because it contributes to the small size and also since you’re only charging a single device at a time, the power capacity is only focussed on a single device. Charging speed through the single port on this charger is fast at a standard max charging rate of 5V/2.4A. The recharge rate is 5V/2.0A, so just make sure you’re using a 2 Amp USB wall charger for a max recharging rate.

Aukey 20,000mAh Power Bank with Lightning and Micro-USB input

Power Banks that use Lightning input ports are far and in between. The main reason why that is because Apple owns the Lightning charging configuration tech and so, therefore, companies that do implement Lightning tech with their products have to pay Apple to do so. The ones that do use Lightning tech with their products is a great thing though because it opens doors for iPhone users, such as this Aukey 20,000mAh power bank.

This charger has two USB-A ports with each of them having a charging speed of 5V/2.4A. There are two input ports on this charger. It has a Micro-USB input port and a Lightning input. Unfortunately, in this case, you can’t use both of the input ports at the same time, only once at a time. That said, if you are charging an iPhone X with this power bank, you can use the same cable to recharge it, as there’s no need to find a Micro-USB cable to recharge the power bank. Each of the two input ports also has the same recharge rate of 5V/2.0A so they’re equal input ports too.

Aukey 26,500mAh Power Bank with 4 Output and 3 Inputs

There are very few high capacity power banks that use a Lightning input port.

There are also very few power banks like this Aukey 26,500mAh portable charger which has quite a lot of output and input ports.

First though, let’s go over the massive power capacity. A 26,500mAh power capacity is going to be able to charge your iPhone X to its full power about 8 times. That said, the capacity of this charger definitely matches a number of ports it has.

Lots of Ways to Charge your Devices

There are a total of four output ports that you can charge your devices with. There are three USB-A ports, with two USB-A ports having a charging speed of 5V/3.0A and the third USB-A port has a speed of 5V/2.4A. Then there’s the USB-C port that can be used as an output to charge USB-C compatible devices with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable, or you can use a USB-C to Lightning cable to charge your iPhone X. The USB-C port on this power bank is the one that we highly recommend to use with your iPhone X as it has a charging output of 5V/3.0A.

Lots of Ways to Recharge the Power Bank

Another major part of this power bank is the recharging of it. It has a total of three input ports. The USB-C port is one of them and using the USB-C port as an input for recharging is the fastest way to recharge this high capacity power bank. That’s because it has a 5V/3.0A recharge rate, if you want to recharge it at that rate, you must make sure that you’re using a Quick Charge USB wall charger.

The other two input ports are the Lightning input and Micro-USB input. The Lightning input has a recharge rate of 5V/1.5A and the Micro-USB input has a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A. This charger has a lot of options and even if you don’t have a USB-C to USB-A cable to use the USB-C input port. You can still use a Lightning to USB-A cable to recharge it.
