Anker PowerCore 20100 Portable Charger with 4.8A Max OutputPic 1

One of the most purchased high capacity power banks on the market is Anker’s PowerCore 20100 portable charger.

It has a 20,100mAh power capacity that’s going to be useful for charging smartphones, and tablets to full power a few times over. The other great part is the charging power behind this power bank.

It has two USB-A ports and each of the ports each have a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and the max output of the power bank is 4.8A. So you’re able to use the max power of each of the ports at the same time. The PowerCore 20100 charger does not feature Quick Charge so it won’t charge any Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speed, but if you don’t need Quick Charge in the first place, it’s one of the best power banks to get.

That’s because it has some powerful base charging that can charge most standard devices at their max charging speed. Recharging for the PowerCore 20100 is quite normal as it uses just a single Micro-USB input port that has a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A.

Quick Charge Version

With all that said, if you want a Quick Charge version of the PowerCore 20100, there’s the PowerCore Speed 20000 portable charger. It has one Quick Charge port that can charge Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speed and the other port is a standard 5V/2.4A port. Recharging the PowerCore Speed is also faster as the Micro-USB input port uses Quick Charge 3.0 and can, therefore, recharge a lot faster when you use a Quick Charge USB wall charger to recharge this power bank.

Tqka 10,000mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge Output and USB-C input

Power banks that have mid-range power capacities are among the best option for portable chargers that you can get. That’s because they have enough power to charge most smartphones on the market to full power about two times and they also make use of powerful charging tech. Coming from a brand that isn’t so well known on the market is this Tqka power bank. It has a 10,000mAh power capacity that is a good amount of power.

This Tqka charger only has a single output port and that’s all you’ll really need when it comes to charging a Quick Charge compatible device, as the single port on this power bank uses Quick Charge 3.0. Another great part of this power bank is the recharging.

It has a total of two input ports, and even though you can only use them one at a time, they have fast recharging. There’s a Micro-USB and USB Type-C input port that each uses Quick Charge 3.0 and so you should use a Quick Charge wall charger with either one that you’re using and so you’re able to get a fast recharge rate for this power bank.

The use of a USB-C and Micro-USB input for those that own Micro-USB and USB-C smartphones as you can use the same cable that you use to charge your phone to recharge this power bank.

Anker PowerCore 10000pic-1

One of the best mid-range power banks on the market is the Anker PowerCore 10000 charger. There really isn’t anything special about this PowerCore 10000 charger. Instead, this charger is basically like a lower capacity PowerCore 20100 charger that we mentioned earlier. It has a 10,000mAh power capacity and it does a lot of things right which makes it one of the most purchased mid-range power banks on Amazon.

Despite having a good amount of power, this charger is basically the size of what you’d expect from a 5,000mAh power bank. That’s because it has a 3.6-inch length, a width of 2.3 inches and the thickness of this charger is 0.9 inches. You would think that this charger would have a high density and be quite heavy but it’s only 6 ounces and so you can slide it right into your pocket without feeling much of anything.

It has a single USB-A port that has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A, and so even though this power bank does not feature Quick Charge many people have found value with it for charging their devices anyway. So just to make it clear, if you own a Samsung Galaxy phone or another Android smartphone that’s Quick Charge compatible, this PowerCore 10000 charger will not fast charge it. With that said, it does have powerful charging and can charge many devices at their max charging speed, even larger devices such as the Apple iPad can charge at its max charging speed as it has a max charge rate of 5V/2.4A.

Recharging this PowerCore 10000 charger is quite normal as it has a Micro-USB input port with recharge speed of 5V/2.0A.

Anker PowerCore+ 10050pic-1-1

However, if you do want a PowerCore 10000 charger that does feature Quick Charge then we recommend taking a look at Anker’s PowerCore+ line. That’s because their plus line chargers have even better build qualities and make use of Quick Charge and other technologies such as USB-C too. In this case, we’re recommending their PowerCore+ 10050 power bank.

It has an Aluminum Alloy build so it definitely feels a lot more sturdy than just your regular PowerCore 10000. It also has a single port but in this case, the USB port uses Quick Charge 3.0 and can, therefore, charge Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speed. The Micro-USB input for recharging this power bank also uses Quick Charge 3.0 and so when you do recharge it, we recommend using a Quick Charge wall charger to recharge it.

The form factor of this more powerful charger has basically the same form factor that can be taken with you anywhere.

Jackery Bolt 6,000mAh Power Bank Micro-USB and Lightning Built-in Cables

As we said at the beginning of this buyer guide, one of the reasons that power banks are growing so rapidly is because they’re a highly innovative charging electronic. The Jackery Bolt portable charge is proof of that and that’s because it has not just one, but two built-in cables. One of the cables is a Micro-USB cable for charging compatible Android devices and the other is a Lighting cable that’s can be used for charging an iPhone or an iPad.

There’s even a USB-A port with this power bank that can be used with any charging cable. Overall, you can charge three devices at once with this power bank and the most surprising thing is that all these features are with a 6,000mAh power bank. The max output of this Jackery Bolt is 2.4A so that’s how much power you have to use overall, and so we recommend charging two devices at once at most if you still want relatively fast charging for your devices.

Recharging this power bank is done through a Micro-USB input port that has a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A. It doesn’t have the highest power capacity, but this Jackery Bolt portable charger has enough power to charge smartphones to full power about 1.5 times. Along with the charging power, this charger also has a LED flashlight that can be useful if you need and it’s a jack of most trades as it has two different charging cables and a USB port.

Aukey 7,000mAh Power Bank

It all mostly started with mini power banks and that’s really how portable chargers became an increasingly growing charging tech. With that said, using a mini power bank that has the lowest specs isn’t exactly the most useful type of power bank to be used now. That’s because most very small and lightweight mini chargers have 3,000mAh capacities and with most phones these days making use of 3,000mAh batteries, they simply don’t provide enough power to charge the phone to full power.

That’s why we recommend getting a mini power bank that’s on the higher tier of power capacity, such as this Aukey 7,000mAh power bank. This charger actually goes beyond the higher 5,000mAh capacity of mini power banks and therefore you’re definitely going to be getting a full charge for your smartphone and maybe a little more depending on what smartphone you’re charging.

Also, on the charging side, this power bank does a great job and that’s because it has a single port with a charging speed of 5V/2.0A. With that said, it’s to be expected as this is a higher tier mini power bank and the standard is 2 Amps or higher, so your smartphone will charge at a faster rate. Recharging this power bank is also quite fast as it has a 2 Amp recharging speed.

You might think this power bank is larger as it has a high capacity, well, that’s true. However, it only has a 5.3 inches length with a 1.2 thickness, so it’s basically as portable as a mini power bank with a lower capacity.

Anker PowerCore Slim 5000 Portable Charger

One of the best parts about mini portable chargers is the form factors that they can take on. Most of the mini power banks that you’ll find on the market have cylindrical shapes and that is quite a good form factor to have as it makes the charger small, but at the same time if you have a higher capacity mini power bank it can make the charger thicker. That’s when it’s good to consider getting a slim portable charger.

Slim-power banks are just what the name implies, meaning that they have thin form factors such as that as a smartphone. The benefit is that you’re able to take these power banks anywhere that you want more easily. A great slim power bank is the PowerCore Slim 5000 charger from Anker. It has a 5,000mAh power capacity that can charge most smartphones to full power once.

This charger also has powerful charging with its single port outputting 5V/2.0A and the Micro-USB input port has a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A. It has a slim form factor with a length of 4.9 inches and a thickness of 0.4 inches. One of the parts that make this Anker slim charger better than most other slim power banks on the market is that it has a function with its slimness. The functional part would be that it has a curve that makes it awesome to hold in the hand and it has ridges where you’d stack your smartphone and charge your phone at the same time.

EasyAcc MegaCharge Doubin Portable Charger with 5 Amp Recharging

Power banks are capable of some great charging feats. That’s what EasyAcc MegaCharge power bank is able to do. It has a 16,750mAh power capacity that can charge smartphones a few times over and it can also charge smartphones to full power and still have extra power left over. That said, the main part that makes this MegaCharge power bank great is the charging power that you’re able to get with it.

It has two USB-A ports with one of the ports featuring Quick Charge 3.0 and the other port has a charging speed of 5V/3.0A, which is higher than the regular standard charging rate of 5V/2.4A. However, if you’re charging standard devices with the Quick Charge port, then it’s able to output 5V/3.0A too. Even the output charging with this power bank is very good, what takes the cake is the recharging for this MegaCharge portable charger.

It has two input ports. With one of the inputs being a USB-C input port with a recharge rate of 5V/3.0A and the other one is a Micro-USB input with a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A. You can actually use both of these input ports at the same time and that can result in a full recharge rate of 5 Amps which can recharge this power bank within just 3.5 hours. For a 16,750mAh power bank to recharge in 3.5 hours, it’s basically one of the shortest recharge times for its capacity.

RAVPower 22,000mAh Power Bankpic-1

There are many high capacity power banks on the market and even though having a high capacity means a lot, there has to be good quality with the output charging. RAVPower is definitely one of the brands that puts good quality behind their power capacities and most importantly the charging behind their power banks.

That’s why we placed RAVpower 22,000mAh power bank within this guide, as it has a lot of power capacity that can be used to recharge smartphones and tablets to full power a few times over. Along with its capacity, this charger uses a total of three output ports.

Each of the USB ports has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and the max output of this charger is 5.8A. So you can use the max power of two ports at the same time, or you can use three of the ports at the same time and each port will output 5V/1.8A. It’s actually not a bad charging speed at all when you consider that you’re still able to charge three devices at once at a charging speed higher than 5V/1.8A.

Recharging this power bank is done through a single Micro-USB input port and it has a recharge rate of 5V2.4A.

RAVPower 32,000mAh Power Bank

So if you thought RAVPower’s 22,000mAh power bank as the limit, well, it wasn’t, as they have a 32,000mAh. Yes, there’s even more power to be had and this charger can basically last you for a week straight with power or maybe, even more, depending on how you use the charger.

It has a total of three output ports with each of the ports being able to output a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and the max output of the power bank is 6A. So if you’re charging three devices at once with the max output of 6A being reached, then each of the ports will still output 5V/2.0A. Overall, even though this charger does not feature Quick Charge it takes standard charging to its max level with some fast standard charging still being available even when you’re charging three devices at once.

The one thing that could be improved with this power bank is the recharging and that’s because it only uses a single Micro-USB input port to recharge. It has a recharge rate of 5V/2.4A and so you should definitely use a 2.4 Amp USB wall charger when it comes to recharging it.

Anker PowerCore 13000 Portable Chargerpic-1

Even though there are many mid-range power banks on the market, Anker is one of those brands that when they make a charger, they make it very well. That’s basically what we mean by their PowerCore 13000. It has 13,000mAh power capacity which is a very good mid-range power capacity that can charge most smartphones to full power about two times. This charger also uses two output ports.

Each of the ports with this charger has a charging speed of 5V/3.0A, but at the same time, the PowerCore 13000 has an overall output of 3 Amps. So if you’re charging two devices at once, the charging speed of each port is able to output 5V/1.5A. Not really the best output, but it’s quite good as this is a mid-range power bank that shares its output with both of its ports.

Recharging is done through a Micro-USB input port. One of the best parts of the PowerCore 13000 isn’t the charging power, but rather that’s not much larger than the PowerCore 10000 that features a lower capacity and a single port, as this PowerCore 13000 only has a length of 3.8 inches, a width of 3.1 inches, and it has a thickness of 0.9 inches.

ORICO 10,000mAh Power Bank with USB-C

There are quite a few obscure brands on the market and one of them is ORICO. They have quite a good mid-range power bank. It has a 10,000mAh power capacity that can charge most smartphones to full power about two times, the part that makes this charger great is the charging experience that you’re able to get from it and the form factor from it too.

This charger has two output ports with one USB-A port that has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and it also has a USB-C port that can be used with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable too. The USB-C port on this power bank has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A, which is lower than the standard that most USB-C ports have, but at the same time this is a very small power bank and it’s surprising that it has a USB-C port in the first place.

Aukey 26,500mAh Power Bank with Power Delivery and Quick Charge 3.0

If you want the most out of portable charging, then you’re best bet is to go with high capacity power banks. As they have a lot of power to use and they also have very powerful charging too. One of the best type of high capacity power banks to get if you have a USB-C compatible laptop such as a MacBook, Chromebook or any other large device that uses powerful USB-C charging is to get a power bank that uses Power Delivery.

Power Delivery is basically the future of charging and that’s because it’s used with the USB-C standard which is the newer standard of charging that most smartphones are also starting to use. Th first Power Delivery power bank that we want to recommend is from Aukey.

This power bank has a 26,500mAh power capacity, and you have enough power to charge large devices such as laptops to their max power a few times over. It’s also enough power to charge smartphones and tablets to their full power many times.

Powerful Charging All the way Through

Charging with this Aukey power bank is the best part and that would be because it has a total of three output charging ports. There are two USB-A ports with one of the ports having a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and the other USB-A port uses Quick Charge 3.0 to charge the compatible device at their max charging speed. Finally, the one other output port is the USB-C port and that is the port that uses Power Delivery, so you should definitely own a USB-C to USB-C charging cable to charge your larger devices that use USB-C to charge them with this port.

There are also smartphones that are compatible with Power Delivery such as the Google Pixel 2 and also the Essential Phone to name a few. Recharging this power bank is also quite versatile and that’s because it has two input ports. One of the input ports and the one that you’re going to want to use is the USB-C port for recharging this power bank, as it can use Power Delivery when you recharge it.

That said, in order to recharge this power bank at Powe Delivery speeds you need to have a USB-C Power Delivery wall charger, but that’s sold separately. We recommend Aukey’s very own PD wall charger. Or you can just use a standard wall charger to recharge with the USB-C port and there’s also a Micro-USB input port that recharges at a 5V/2.0A recharging rate.

Aukey 30,000mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge and USB-C

If you found the above Power Delivery portable charger to be highly intriguing but have no need for its Power Delivery charging abilities, then we recommend Aukey’s 30,000mAh power bank. It does have a lot of power that can last you quite a long time.

The charging with this absurdly high capacity power bank is very good and is basically like the charger that we talked about before just without the Power Delivery and a lower price tag.

EasyAcc 20,000mAh Rugged Waterproof Power Bank with IP67 Enclosure

Even though power banks are great devices to have if there’s one thing that most of them have in common with each other and basically any and all other portable devices, it would be the fact that they’re quite fragile. That’s why Rugged power banks exist, as they’re chargers they have build qualities that are far more durable than just your regular power banks.

This EasyAcc charger is just that, as it has a shockproof structure meaning that you can drop it a few feet onto the hard ground and the charger won’t get damaged. Another great part of this charger is that it can be waterproof when the charging port covering is over the ports. When the charger is waterproof, it has an IP67 Enclosure meaning that it can go underwater for about 30 minutes and still not get damaged.

Charging with this EasyAcc waterproof power bank is great, as it has a high capacity of 20,000mAh and it has two USB charging ports. With one of the ports outputting 5V/2.4A and the other port has a charging rate of 5V/1.0A. Recharging this power bank is done through a Micro-USB input port with a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A.

EasyAcc 26,000mAh Power Bank with Four Output PortsEasyAcc Monster 26,000mAh Power Bank

For the most part, high capacity power banks have up to three output charging ports. However, EasyAcc takes it a little further than that with their 26,000mAh and also 20,000mAh power bank.

They have two versions, so if you want even more power, you can go with the 26,000mAh version but other than that, the both basically have the same charging power behind them. They have four USB ports and so you can charge four devices at once. Each of the ports has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and the max output of this power bank is 4.8A. Not exactly the best max output when you have four charging ports, as when you charge four devices at once with the output of 4.8A being reached each of the ports are able to output 5V/1.2A.

With that said, it’s still pretty good when you consider that this is a portable charger that can be taken anywhere and you have a 1 amp charging speed for the four ports that this charger has. If you want fast charging for the devices that you charge at the same time, then simply charge fewer devices at once.

Recharging this power bank is pretty great and that’s because it has two Micro-USB input ports, with each of the input ports having a charging rate of 5V/2.0A and so when you use each of the ports at the same time, you get a full recharge rate of 4A. A 4A recharge speed results in a 6 hour recharge time, and that is quite fast when you consider how much power capacity this charger has.
