Well, it’s that time again, the release of the new iPhone, and this year we’re getting the iPhone 15. Big deal, yes. As we all know, we’re getting some drastic upgrades this time. No, not at all; this is still a slight improvement over the previous year, but if you can afford to upgrade, congratulations.
One big deal for the iPhone 15 model is that it finally uses a USB-C port. Now, this is a big deal because you no longer have to worry about having a USB-C to Lightning cable handy, and now all your USB-C chargeable devices are on the same wavelength using a USB-C to USB-C charging cable. Since the iPhone 15 uses a lot of power with its high-end specs, you may need to recharge it throughout your day, and if that’s the case, you may want to own a power bank to charge your iPhone 15 with. In this guide, I’m covering power banks that would work well with charging your iPhone 15.
iWalk LinkPod USB-C 5,000mAh Mini Power Bank
The first power bank I want to recommend is this iWalk LinkPod USB-C mini power bank. The usual case with me recommending this power bank for an iPhone is that I would have specified that you need to go with the Lightning version. However, I’m happy to say that you can choose the USB-C version of this power bank for charging your iPhone 15.
This charger has a built-in USB-C connector to output 20W of Power Delivery. Therefore, you can fast charge your iPhone within this power bank. You don’t need a cable to use the power bank because you can recharge it simply by plugging the USB-C connector into a USB-C port on a wall charger. However, the power bank has a USB-C port to recharge.
The 5,000mAh battery capacity of this iWalk power bank can charge the iPhone 15 to full power about one time, and it has a tiny size that becomes part of your phone once you plug the charger in.
