Best Power Banks for Google Pixel 5

Google made a wise choice with getting into the smartphone market, as it’s one of the largest on the planet. Almost everyone owns a smartphone these days. Their great choice was their Google Pixel lineup, currently one of the most popular phones on the market. The Pixel is known for its bare-bones design, fantastic specs, most notably the cameras being the best nearly every year.

The Google Pixel 5 keeps that going with the phone featuring even better camera quality cameras than the last, a high refresh rate screen, and an even larger 4,080mAh battery. However, with the phone being even faster than before with the use of the latest Snapdragon processor and 8GB of RAM, then users of the Pixel will be more inclined to use the phone even more, and this can result in the battery power being drained faster.

The next thing you know, you’re near an empty battery, and that’s why in this guide, we’re covering power banks that you should use to charge your Google Pixel 5. Pixel 5 is the best that Google has to offer, but having a low battery when you’re out and about is inevitable, and that’s why using a portable charger is a must.

Aukey 10,000mAh Power Delivery 10W Wireless Charging Power Bank

One of the best parts about charging a Google Pixel is its use of USB-C for easy access charging; it’s also its use of Power Delivery fast charging. That’s why in this guide, most, if not all of the power banks will feature Power Delivery as you’ll be able to fast charge your Pixel 5 wherever you are.

This Aukey power bank has a 10,000mAh power capacity, and a 10,000mAh power capacity is what you should aim for if you want to be able to charge your Pixel to full power about two times. The charging power from this Aukey charger takes the cake, with three power output options.

There are two ports to charge from, with an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port that will be able to fast charge your Pixel 5, and there is also a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port. This Aukey power bank even has wireless charging at the top and features 10W fast wireless charging for Google Pixel 5, Samsung smartphones, and 7.5W fast wireless charging for iPhones.

CHOETECH 10,000mAh USB-C and Lightning Built-in Cable Power Bank

With most power banks that feature built-in cables, they don’t feature fast charging such as Power Delivery or Quick Charge, and that’s a shame considering that most smartphones use either of those fast charging technologies. That is why this CHOETECH power bank is a must if you want a power bank that has built-in cables with fast charging.

This CHOETECH portable charger has a built-in USB-C and Lightning cable, and both of them feature an 18W Power Delivery charging rate. This means that you can fast charge your Pixel 5 with the USB-C cable; you can also fast charge iPhones with the Lighting cable. iPhones from the iPhone X, and 8, all the way to the current iPhone 12, are Power Delivery compatible.

The power bank does not have any output charging ports, but it does have a USB-C PD port that is only used for recharging. When you’re not using the power bank, the cables can be inserted into the power bank, so you can quickly place the charger into your pocket.

Xcentz 5,000mAh Power Delivery Mini Power Bank

We realize that the Google Pixel 5 has a 4,080mAh battery, a large battery, so you should go for mid-range power banks with higher power capacities. That said, if you mostly care about having your Pixel 5 charged up and not about getting multiple full charges, then you should consider this Xcentz mini power bank.

This Xcentz power bank has a 5,000mAh power capacity, yes, a low capacity that can charge the Pixel 5 to full power about one time or close to it. The better part of this power bank and why it holds value is that it has a USB-C Power Delivery port and a USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 port. If any, there are very few power banks that have such a low capacity that feature two fast charging ports. You can also recharge this Xcentz power bank at Power Delivery speeds.

This charger’s length is only 3 inches, and it has a 1.1-inch thickness, making this mini power bank easy to hold or place in your pocket. The box also includes a USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable, another part that power banks in this capacity range rarely include.

Aukey 8,000mAh 18W Power Delivery Wireless Charging Power Bank

One other Aukey power bank that we wanted to add is their 8,000mAh slim Power Delivery power bank. This one has a lower 8,000mAh power capacity, compared to the 10,000mAh, the other one had, so you’re going to be able to get a single full charge for your Pixel 5 only, with some power left over.

RAVPower 30,000mAh 90W Power Delivery Power Bank

There are also very high capacity power banks such as this RAVPower with a 30,000mAh power capacity. A 30,000mAh power capacity is a lot of power to use and can charge the Google Pixel 5 to full power about six or seven times. This much power can also be useful for charging other devices to full power simultaneously, whether it’s another smartphone, tablet, or laptop. You can go about a week without having to recharge this power bank, depending on what you’re charging with it.

The charging power from this RAVPower portable charger is one of the best to find when it comes to mobile charging. The options are minimal. The power bank has a 90W USB-C Power Delivery port and a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port. A 90W Power Delivery charging speed is more than enough to fast charge your Pixel 5, and don’t worry, it will not damage your phone. That said, a 90W PD port can also be useful for charging most USB-C Power Delivery laptops. Most modern laptops use a USB-C port for charging, so if you have a laptop that uses PD for charging, this power bank can also be used as a portable charger for your laptop and Pixel 5.

You can even use the Quick Charge port and the Power Delivery port simultaneously, and the PD port will still output 65W, while the Quick Charge port outputs 18W.

You can recharge the power bank at 60W with a Power Delivery wall charger, which helps recharge time for such a high capacity power bank. This power bank does not include a PD wall charger, but it does come with a USB-C to USB-C cable.
