The Google Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro bring with them a host of new specs, and the most notable of them is that they use Google’s very own Tensor chip rather than the commonly used Snapdragon processor. Using a Tensor chip lets Google differentiate itself even more in the smartphone market where Samsung Galaxy phones and iPhone are the flagships.
The Pixel 6 uses a 90Hz refresh rate display along with the new processor, while the Pixel 6 Pro uses a variable refresh rate 120Hz display. Both of these are heavy on battery power, but you’re going to want to use higher refresh rates for a much smoother user experience; besides, once you use a higher refresh rate, you’re not going to want to go back to 60Hz.
Of course, the Camera of the Pixel 6 also uses even better image processing, and chances are if you’re getting the Google Pixel. You’re likely going to be using the camera often. To keep up with the new specs of the phone, the base Pixel 6 has a 4,614mAh battery, and the Pixel 6 Pro has a 5,003mAh battery. The one worry about these newer phones is running out of power too soon throughout the day as these larger batteries are meant to keep up with the power usage.
That’s why it’s a good idea to have a power bank to charge your Google Pixel 6 Pro, so you’re able to continue using all the features the new phone has to offer.
UGREEN 10,000mAh 18W PD Power Bank with Built-in USB-C Cable
Power banks that you charge your Pixel 6 with should have enough power capacity to charge the phone to full power at least once. Newer smartphones have larger batteries, so if you want multiple total charges for the Pixel 6, you’re going to have to go with a higher-capacity power bank. Also, if you care about fast charging while portable, the power bank should use USB-C Power Delivery charging.
This UGREEN power bank is one of the most reliable portable chargers that you can use with the Pixel Pro 6 because it has a built-in USB-C cable; not only the Pixel, though, this power bank is great to use for nearly every single USB-C smartphone, and tablet, too. As a result of always having a cable with you, as long as the power bank is charged up, you’re able to charge your Pixel without having to worry about grabbing a cable before leaving the house. Also, portability is improved with this power bank because the built-in cable is concealed into the power bank when you’re not using it.
Ordinary power banks have cables sticking out of ports, and those can get in the way when placing the charger into your pocket.
The built-in cable uses an 18W Power Delivery charging speed that can fast charge the Pixel 6. To add, the power bank also has one USB-A Quick Charge port and a 20W USB-C Power Delivery port.
The power bank comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable.

JIGA 10,000mAh Wireless Charging Power Bank with Power Delivery
The Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro don’t use MagSafe, which newer iPhones models use, such as the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 feature to attach themselves to wireless charging pads magnetically. That’s what this JIGA power bank uses, which is a MagSafe charging pad, and even though the Pixel 6 can’t magnetically attach to this power bank, you can still place the phone on the pad while the power bank is flat and wirelessly charge your Pixel.
In addition to wireless charging, this JIGA power bank has two fast charging ports: a USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 port and an 18W USB-C Power Delivery port. So if you want to fast charge your Pixel 6, we recommend using the USB-C port because as convenient as wireless charging is, it’s slower than wired charging.

Baseus 20,000mAh 65W USB-C Power Deilvery Power Bank
A high-capacity power bank is the way to go if you want to charge your Pixel to full power more than a single time. Higher capacity power banks also tend to have more powerful charging. That’s the case with this Baseus power bank that has a 20,000mAh power capacity that can charge the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro to full power about two times.
Charging power is a lot more versatile for fast charging your Google Pixel and charging other USB-C devices; that’s because this power bank has a 65W USB-C Power Delivery port that can charge most laptops. On top of that, this power bank also has two USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 ports. Charging from all three ports simultaneously results in the USB-C port outputting 45W, which is still more than enough to charge most laptops, and you can still fast charge your Pixel.
Recharging this power bank is also fast because you can recharge it at 60W via the USB-C port, but you will need a 60W Power Delivery wall charger or higher. The power bank does have a Micro-USB input port, but it has a much slower recharge rate of 12W.

RAVPower 30,000mAh 90W Power Delivery Power Bank
Even higher on the power capacity is this RAVPower portable charger with its 30,000mAh power capacity that can charge Pixel 6 Pro with its more significant 5,003mAh battery to full power about three or four times. This is a great power bank to have if you don’t want to worry about recharging your power bank for a few days.
Charging power is even more impressive than the Baseus power bank because it has a 90W USB-C Power Delivery port. A 90W charge rate can charge most USB-C chargeable devices, and that includes most laptops. You can fast charge the Pixel 6 with the USB-C port on this power bank. There’s also a USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 port, and when you’re charging two devices simultaneously, the USB-C PD port outputs 65W. 65W is still lots of charging power to capture a variety of different devices.
The power bank can be recharged at 60W, but you have to provide your wall charger because this power bank only comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable and does not include a wall charger.

JIGA 30,000mAh 3 Output and 3 Input Power Bank
If you don’t care about fast charging and want a low-cost power bank with a ton of power capacity and just standard charging, then this JIGA power bank is for you. That’s because it has a 30,000mAh power capacity that can be used for a few days for charging your Pixel 6, and it has three USB-A 10W standard ports. So you can’t fast charge your Pixel with this power bank.
This JIGA portable charger also has three ways to recharge it using a Lightning, USB-C, and Micro-USB input port. You can also use one input at a time for recharging, and they all have the same 10W recharge rate.
Overall, this JIGA power bank is a good option for longevity in its power capacity, but not for fast charging as it doesn’t use Power Delivery.

PowerArc ArcPack 15,000mAh 60W PD Power Bank
A more of a mid-range power bank is this PowerArc ArcPack portable charger with a 15,000mAh power capacity that can get your Pixel to full power about two times. That said, the charging regime is a little more than average because it has a 30W USB-C Power Delivery port and two USB-A ports that share a 30W output. The max output of this PowerArc portable charger is 60W. As a result, you can fast-charge your Pixel 6 while charging another two devices via the two USB-A ports.
The power bank has a better build than most other power banks because it’s aluminum and not plastic. Also included in the box is quite possibly one of the most premium USB-C to USB-C cables that you can find that comes with a power bank.
