Best Power Banks for Galaxy S7

The Galaxy S7 is one of the most famous smartphones out on the market and for simple reasons. It features the latest in tech with its Snapdragon 820 processor that provides amazing performance, a screen that’s awesome to look at, and of course, a very large battery capacity. Also, along with the large battery comes its compatibility with Quick Charge 3.0 because you’re really going to need it with the big battery that it has.

Even though the Galaxy S7 does have a big battery, it’s still going to run out sooner or later and you’re going to need a charge when that happens. Not just any power bank is going to do the job when it comes to charging a Samsung Galaxy S7 because there are few smartphones like it. A power bank that’s used with the Samsung Galaxy S7 is going to need to have a power capacity and charging to match its standards.

This is why Charger Harbor has put together a list of the best power banks for your Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. It’s important to know that the Galaxy S7 has a power capacity of 3,000mAh and the Galaxy S7 Edge a capacity of 3,600mAh.

#1: Anker PowerCore 10000 with Quick Charge 3.0

Anker is known to be one of the best charging electronic companies and this rings very true when it comes to their power banks because if not all, most of their portable chargers offer great quality. This goes for their power capacity, the conversion rate of the power capacity, charging speeds, build quality and overall aesthetic of their portable chargers.

In this case, this Anker PowerCore 10000 is one of their very popular power banks because it’s able to bring a strong package when it comes to charging a Galaxy S7. With that said, it’s important to know that there are 3 variations of the Anker PowerCore 10000.

Here are 3 Different Versions of the Anker PowerCore 10000

There’s the Normal Anker PowerCore 10000, then the Anker PowerCore 10000 with Quick Charge 3.0 and then there’s the Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 QC that uses Cooling Technology and also uses Quick Charge 3.0.

What version of the Anker PowerCore 10000 is best to use with the Samsung Galaxy S7?

The plain Anker PowerCore 10000 is best to used with standard charging devices, meaning devices that aren’t compatible with Quick Charge technology.

With that said, the PowerCore 10000 with QC 3.0 and the PowerCore Speed are the best versions to use with the Galaxy S7. Both of them have Quick Charge 3.0 tech that’s going to charge your Galaxy S7 at its max charging and that means that it’ll Output 5-6V-3A | 6-9V/2A | 9-12V/1.5A of charging speeds. Also, important to know that the Anker PowerCore 10000 in general just has a single charging port which means that you’ll only be able to charge a single device at a time; which is another reason why it’s one of the best power banks for the Galaxy S7 because it’s so small.

So small that is can fit into a pocket, or you can hold it in your hand while you’re charging your smartphones.

How’s the Conversion of Power of the Quick Charge 3.0 and PowerCore Speed

Although there is a small but significant difference between the Quick Charge 3.0 version and PowerCore Speed and that would be the Output power capacity that you can actually use. When you’re using Quick Charge charging with the Anker PowerCore 10000 Quick Charge 3.0, then the conversion is quite bad at 50% and that means you’ll be receiving 5,000mAh of power capacity.

On the other hand, the Anker PowerCore Speed 10000 QC is able to have a conversion rate of 70% because of its cooling technology and that means you’ll receive about 6,000mAh-7,000mAh of Output power capacity.

  • Output:   Max Output: 5V/2.4A

  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators
  • Size: 3.6 x 2.4 x 0.9 inches
  • Weight: 6.4 Ounces

#2: BlitzWolf 10,000mAh Quick Charge 3.0 Power Bank

This BlitzWolf power bank has two charging ports. One of the charging ports has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and another one has Quick Charge 3.0. It’s power bank that’s very useful for not only charging your Galaxy S7 but also for charging another device at the same time. This is because you can connect your Galaxy S7 to the Quick Charge port to charge at its max speed and connect the second smartphone with the other port; the other port actually has a fast charging speed too that can charge tablets like an iPad at its max charging speed.

You have More Control over Conversion of Power

With that said, if you want to conserve as much power for charging your Galaxy S7 a few times, then it’s best to just charge a single device at a time. Since charging two devices at the same time will burn through more power capacity and give you less conversion. However, if you’re only using the Quick Charge port, then you’ll be able to get about 60% of conversion. This way, you’ll get about 2 full charges for your Galaxy S7.

The Sizing

Not too much larger than the above Anker PowerCore 10000, this BlitzWolf power bank can still be portable in your hands, but the thickness of it can make it uncomfortable to place into a pocket.

  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators
  • Size: 5.5 x 4.3 x 1.3 inches
  • Weight: 8.8 ounces

#3: PowerAdd 10,050mAh Quick Charge 3.0 Portable Charger

This PowerAdd does things a little differently, of course, it has a Quick Charge 3.0 charging port that’s going to charge your Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge at their max charging speeds. However, the other charging port only offers a charging speed of 5V/1.0A, which is slow.

Quick Charge speeds are Also Used in Recharging

With that said, one of the best aspects of this power bank is its recharging because it has a recharge speed of 5-9V/2.0A  | 12V/1.5A and that means when you use a Quick Charge USB wall charger to recharge the power bank, it’ll be fully recharged within 4 hours. For a 10,000mAh power bank, that’s very fast charging, and we think utilizing Quick Charge not only with an Output port but also with an Input port is a clever thing to do to add more quality.

Also, even though you can charge two devices at once, it’s best to charge your Galaxy S7 alone with the power bank so you don’t use power unnecessarily because the other charging port has slow charging. The two best parts of this PowerAdd power bank is its Quick Charge Output and Input capabilities.

#4: Imazing Power Bank 10,000mAh

pic-1

The Imazing power bank does truly have amazing charging prowess. Since all of its charging options are built on speed. It has one Quick Charge 3.0 charging ports and another 5V/2.4A charging port. The recharging for the power bank done through a USB-C Input port.

Using USB-C as an Output Port

So you can recharge a Galaxy S7 at its max charging with the Quick Charge 3.0 and use the other USB port to charge a standard charging device most likely at its max charging too. In addition to the Output charging, the USB-C port can be used as an Output when you use a USB-C to USB-C charging cable and charge devices that are compatible to use USB-C charging like a Google Pixel or a One Plus 3 smartphone.

Recharging Using USB-C

The Recharging is done very well too, but you’ll need two things to make the most out of recharging the Imazing power bank; a Quick Charge USB Wall charger and a USB-A to USB-C charging cable. Then you’ll be able to recharge the power bank at a 5V/3.0A rate and have a full recharge within 4 hours.

It’s a long power bank, but it makes up with its thinness. If you really wanted to, you could fit this into a back pocket or simply hold the portable charger while charging your S7.

#5: Eighty Plus 10,000mAh Power Bank with USB-C

We think this Eighty Plus power bank is one of the best power banks for the Galaxy S7 because of the minimal but VERY useful charging features it has.

It has the must have Quick Charge 3.0 charging port that you can use to charge your S7 at its max charging speed. Then there’s the USB-C charging port and Micro-USB port.

The Micro-USB port is just an Input port to be used for recharging if you only have a Micro-USB charging cable. With that said, if you have a USB-C charging cable the possibilities open up with the USB-C charging port because by using a USB-C to USB-C charging cable, you can use the USB-C charging port as an Output port; this will result in being able to recharge compatible USB-C smartphones and even Laptops at the same time you’re charging your Galaxy S7.

Options for Recharging Eighty Plus Power Bank

Also, if you use a USB-C to USB-A charging cable and have a Quick Charge wall charger, then you can fully recharge the Eighty Plus power bank within 3.5-4 hours. Of course, if you don’t have a USB-C cable or Quick Charge wall charger, that’s alright because you can just use the Micro-USB Input port that is conveniently available.

#6: Tronsmart 10,400mAh Power Bank

You’ve noticed the trend by now, lots of these power banks that use Quick Charge 3.0 also have USB-C charging ports. This is because USB-C is a type of charging that is perfect to use in tandem with Quick Charge

A Power Bank Built on Prowess

This Tronsmart Presto power bank is very minimal and that’s a good thing. It has Quick Charge 3.0 charging port and a USB-C charging port. Of course, you’d use your Galaxy S7 or any other smartphone with the Quick Charge 3.0 port and you can also use the USB-C port to charge smartphones and other USB-C compatible devices like a MacBook.

To use the USB-C port as an Output you need a USB-C to USB-C charging cable, and the USB-C port has an Output charging port of 5V/3.0A. The recharging is done through the USB-C port as well, and to recharge the Tronsmart Smart Presto power bank at its max recharge speed you should use a Quick Charge wall charger for the speed of 5V/3.0 and that will result in the power bank being fully recharged within 4-5 hours.

The Best Larger Capacity Power Bank for Galaxy S7

#7:  MGCool 16,000mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge 3.0

Not we’re entering a high capacity range to charge your Galaxy S7 with and these power banks are going to prove to be more useful in terms of longevity because they can give more full charges.

A Higher Power Capacity for More Charges for your Galaxy S7

In this case, this MGCool power bank has an initial power capacity of 16,000mh and with its use of two fast charging technologies like using a Quick Charge 3.0 charging port and a USB-C charging port too; then the conversion can suffer quite a bit. This will result in a usable Output power capacity about 10,000mAh. This is really good, though, considering that you can charge a Galaxy S7 to its full power about 3 times when this MGCool power bank is at its max power.

There’s Quick Charge 3.0 charging charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones and a USB-C Output port that can charge USB-C compatible devices.

Quite the Strong Build

Even though the normal thing is that USB-C ports can be used to recharge power banks, that’s not the case here and instead, you must you use the Micro-USB input port to recharge the MGCool power bank. Other than that, its powerful charging options the MGCool power bank has great build quality with about 3/4 of the power bank being covered in rubber to withstand drops and just a little water on the rubber side.

#8: Aukey 16,000mAh Power Bank with Two Charging Ports

pic-1

This Aukey power bank doesn’t have Quick Charge 3.0 but it does have Quick Charge 2.0, but the Galaxy S7 can still charge at Quick Charge 2.0 charging speeds. There’s one charging port that uses Quick Charge 2.0 and another port that uses AiPower charging.

The power capacity of starts at 16,000mAh and depending on whether you’re charging 2 or 1 devices at once, the Output power capacity is most likely going to go down to 10,000mAh that you can actually use.

A High power Capacity but Pretty Good Portability

So if you have noticed, the powering capabilities of this power bank ar quite good but that’s not the best part of the power bank. No, what is the best part is just how portable all of this power is because it’s only 0.7 inches in thickness and the length of the charger is 6.5 inches and a width of 2.9 inches. You can easily take this power bank anywhere you take your Galaxy S7.

The Best High Capacity Power Banks for the Galaxy S7

#9: RAVPower 20,100mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge 3.0

pic-12

Now if you want to have lots of full charges for your Galaxy S7 and we meant a lot, then high capacity power banks are the way to go. Such as this RAVPower power bank that has a power capacity of 20,000mAh.

Options for Charging

It has a 3 ways to charge devices from. There’s a Quick Charge 3.0 and AiPower charging port; as well as a USB-C port. With that said, the Quick Charge 3.0 charging port doesn’t exactly have Quick Charge 3.0 charging speeds because the highest that it can charge is 5V/2.4A and the lower the speed goes, then Voltage increases just as Quick Charge should, but the main flaw is that the fastest charging speed of QC 3.0 should be 3.6-6.5V/3.0A.

With that said, the ability to charge 3 devices is quite awesome because you can charge your Galaxy S7 at/near its max charging speed, have another device charging with the AiPower USB port that has a charging of 5V/2.4A and charge a USB-C compatible device by using the USB-C port.

Options for Recharging

There are two ways to recharge the RAVPower power bank, either through its Micro-USB Input port or the USB-C one. The Micro-USB input only recharges the power bank at 5V/2.0A and the USB-C used as an Input is much faster at a recharge speed of 5V/3.0A. As long as you’re using a Quick Charge wall charger when you’re using the USB-C port to recharge the power bank, the recharge time will be short at 5-6 hours. Not bad for a 20,000mAh power bank.

#10: Aukey 30,000mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge 3.0

For Charging your Galaxy S7 Lots and Lots of Times

The last power bank in this list of best power banks for your Galaxy S7, there’s this Aukey 30,000mAh power bank. The reason to get this power bank for your Galaxy S7 is because of its power capacity since you’ll be able to charge your S7 about 8-9 full times and a Galaxy S7 Edge will be able to do about 6-7 full charges.

The Charging Options

Another primary reason to get this power bank is because of all of its powerful charging capabilities.  There’s the Quick Charge 3.0 port that you can use with either Quick Charge 3.0 or 2.0 compatible devices and the AiPower and USB-C charging port. The AiPower port has a max charging speed of 5V/2.4A and the USB-C port has a charging speed of 5V/3.0A. So you can charge 3 devices at once and all of them are going to receive some very fast charging.

Recharging Done Right

Along with the awesome Output charging that your devices receive, the recharging of this high capacity power bank is equally as good. This is because you can use both the Micro-USB and USB-C ports at the same time to recharge the power bank and that will result in a total of 4 Amps of recharging speed, which will result in a 7 hours recharge speed of this 30,000mAh power bank. That’s a fast recharge!

However, it’s important to realize that even though it’s powerful with its power capacity and charging abilities, it may be quite small but is heavy and that can make portability difficult.

The Best 5 Reason of Why You Need a Power Bank

You’re Using your Smartphone a Lot

One of the main reasons why power banks even exist is because lots of people use their smartphone. From the moment we wake up, we’re most likely using our smartphone nearly the entire day. There’s nothing to be ashamed about that though because smartphones are usually what we need to either communicate with other people and use as a form of entertainment. They’re even integrated into our work life.

It’s in those times, about halfway throughout your day that you may notice that the battery of your smartphone is nearly at 0% and that’s when you start to panic because your smartphone is about to die and there’s basically no way to keep texting your friends, make plans and be connected to the world. Overall, it’s a bad situation to be in.

In those times you need a source of power to charge your smartphone. You can’t exactly whip out a wall charger and start charging because you need an outlet. If you have a car charger, are you really going to just stay in your car and wait for your smartphone to charge to an acceptable power capacity? No! that’s going to waste time and you’re always on the go and have things to do. This is where a power bank comes in because you can easily just begin charging your smartphone with your power bank when it’s low on power and that will result in a constant use of a smartphone without any interruptions.

Overall, power banks allow you to always be in the zone and connected to what you’re doing; no matter if you’re sending out 1,000 texts per minutes or playing Clash of Clans from dawn till dusk.

Not that Pricy for what they offer

One of the main misconceptions of portable chargers that most people have is that they think power banks are actually expensive. That’s simply not true at all.

People usually think that power banks are expensive because they’re either purchasing it from retail stores or they’re simply looking at portable chargers that are being sold by companies that think they can fool consumers into purchasing their overpriced products. However, that’s simply not something you should be fooled by.

Most portable chargers, even the best quality ones are for very reasonable prices. Of course when the power banks make use of a higher power capacity or special charging techs like USB-C or Quick Charge, then yes it will be more expensive. Without those charging technologies, a power bank should be at a reasonable price that anyone can afford no matter what it offers. So you can always have reliable power without paying a high price.

Take a look at our post on what the best power banks brands are. Those charging electronic companies are great not only because their products are great, but also because they’re priced truthfully.

Lots of Devices Need Charging? No Problem.

Most of us own and use lots of devices. These devices can be smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices that run off a battery and always need a recharge when they’re low on power. So what happens when all of your devices are low on power and need a recharge.

Sure you could just migrate to your USB wall charger that has 5 charging ports; but what if you don’t want to move? What if you just want to stay in the same spot to charge your smartphone, tablet, and laptop at the same time. That’s when a power bank is very helpful because there is a range of power banks on the market that has multiple USB charging ports and are able to charge multiple devices at once. These are usually power banks that have 13,000mAh – 20,000mAh power capacities and those that have 21,000mAh – 30,0000mAh+ power capacities as well.

A great power bank that has such a capability of charging multiple devices at one and being able to charge them at very fast speed is the Anker PowerCore II 20000. This power bank has 3 charging ports and a max Output of 6 Amps, and with each charging port being able to Output 5V/3.0A. That means you can really charge 3 devices at once since the Anker portable charger is able to Output 30 Watts of power which can supply enough power to charge either a Macbook that uses USB-C or a Chromebook Pixel.

This is where power banks are absolutely able to dominate because not only are you able to have portable power, but you have the portable power that is able to charge multiple devices at once at very fast charging speeds that basically meet the same standard of USB wall chargers. Also, there’s enough power capacity to charge nearly all the devices that are charging at the same time to their full power capacities.

Take Every One. Anywhere.

Of course one the best reason to own power banks is because another name for power banks is the portable charger. You get to have power wherever you go and this goes every portable charger on the market.

There are indeed power banks that larger than one another, some can easily fit into your pocket like slim power banks or ones that have small power capacities. Then there are the behemoth power banks that have higher power capacities. If there’s one thing that’s important to remember is that every power bank is portable, sure some are larger and a lot heavier than others but they can still be taken with you by simply putting them into a bag or you can just hold them.

This is the beauty of the portable chargers, and there’s no better solution to providing power in the most power drained times than a power bank.

Portable Chargers to Fit your Charging Needs

Since there are a ton of different portables chargers on the market, this means that there are plenty that can serve your needs.

Here are some types of portable chargers that are able to accommodate certain charging needs:

USB-C Power Banks

These kinds of portable chargers are growing mainly because a number of devices that currently use Type-C to charge are still few but it’s steadily growing since the USB-C charging way is an overall faster way to charge. Also, if a power bank uses USB-C that also means it likely recharges using USB-C which makes it recharge faster.

Quick Charge power banks

Power banks that use Quick Charge are mainly meant for those that have Quick Charge compatible smartphones and by using compatible smartphones with it, you’re able to charge your device at blazing fast speed while you’re on-the-go. Also, these kinds of power banks are highly reliable even for those that don’t use Quick Charge because most of the time Quick Charge ports are able to charge standard devices at their max charging speeds too.

Power Bank with Built-In charging cables

One of the best reasons to get power banks is because it already has a cable built within it. This is because all you have to worry about is having the portable charger itself and not a charging cable. The negative thing about using a normal power bank is that you always need your own separate charging cable if you want to charge. Having a built-in one is able to increase portability and ease of use. Just make sure you get a portable charger that uses your specific charging cable whether it’s USB-C, Lightning or Micro-USB.

Power banks that are slim or really small

Small portable chargers are some of the most preferred ways to carry portable power around because it’s the easiest way to have it. This is because they’re really easy to hold and take really take anywhere. Just take a look at the Anker PowerCore Slim. Not only is it basically like having second smartphones but the design holds function with the ability to stack your smartphones on top of the power banks so you can use your smartphones comfortably while it’s charging.

Power banks with lots of charging ports

Portable chargers are basically on the same level as USB wall chargers and this means that you can charge multiple devices at the same time, as we also mentioned earlier in this post.

If you need one device charged then that is possible. If you need up to 6 device charging at once, then that’s also possible with a few power banks too.

Waterproof, Dustproof, and Shockproof rugged power banks

Many of us fear that our power banks and of course smartphones are going to get damaged if water comes on them or if they fall. However, that fear can be taken away and basically be non-existent for some portable chargers that are indeed waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof. These kinds of rugged power banks are mainly meant for those that are going into the wilderness because they’re going hiking or camping.

However, tough power banks are VERY useful for just everyday use because the fear of dropping the charger isn’t there because if you do drop it, nothing is going to happen and it’ll still work like normal. Rugged power banks like the EasyAcc or RAVPower chargers are able to complete such goals and are perfect for withstanding even the harshest of conditions.

Best Large 13,000mAh – 20,000mAh Power Banks

#1: Anker PowerCore 20100

Power Capacity:

Now that we’re in the bigger league of power banks, this means that there’s much more power capacity to use.

This is the first on our list, the Anker PowerCore 20100. It does a great job with its power capacity because the conversion rate is really good since the power bank uses Panasonic battery cells. As a result, you’re only going to be losing about 1,000mAh – 2,000mAh of power capacity during charging and this means that you’re going to be getting about 18,000mAh of power capacity that you can actually use.

With that power capacity at hand you can charge smartphones numerous times over, and by numerous, we mean about 8 times or more. Overall, if you’re charging ONLY smartphones with this power bank then it can last days or even weeks without it needing to be recharged. Even for tablets, the power capacity can hold up very well, as Mini tablets can charge twice to their full power capacities; and if you’re charging full sized tablets that have a very large power capacity, basically double than Mini sized tablets, then the entirety of the PowerCore 20100’s power capacity can charge it to full.

We placed this power bank first on being the best 13,000 – 20,000mAh power bank because it does such a great job at conversion because of its usage of Panasonic battery cells. With that, it truly makes a difference on how much power capacity you can actually use.

Charging:   Per Port: 5V/2.4A     Max Output: 4.8A

The charging speeds for the PowerCore 20100 are in full throttle. We say this because it’s true since the power bank has 2 Output charging ports that both offer 5V/2.4A. Not only that, but the 2 charging ports can offer 2.4 Amps of charging power at the same time since the Max Output of the power bank is 4.8A. So you can charge 2 iPads at the same time at their max charging speeds, as well as most smartphones if they’re not Quick Charge compatible; this power bank does not feature Quick Charge technology.

With that said, it’s still amazing that it’s able to offer a Max Standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A at the same time from both ports because no matter what you’re charging with this power bank, it will be able to charge at a very fast charging speed.

Recharging: 5V/2.4A

Recharging is done by using the Micro-USB Input port and the max recharging rate is about 5V/2.0A. Although we would have liked for this power bank to use a 5V/2.4A charging rate for a recharge, it does 7-8 hours long recharge time when you’re using a 2 Amp wall charger.

Portability:

Even though the general rule is that the higher the power capacity of the power bank, the bigger it will be. With that said, this doesn’t hold true too strongly with the PowerCore 20100 since the power bank has a length of 6.6 inches, a width of 2.3 inches and a thickness of 0.9 inches. It has a weight of 12.6 ounces. It’s a small enough power bank that you can indeed hold in a single hand if you’re charging only your smartphones, and if you really wanted to, this power bank can even fit into your pocket.

With that said, it’s best to just opt to set it down.

Specs of the PowerCore 20100:

  • Capacity: 20,100mAh
  • Output: 2.4A Per Port
  • Input: 2.0A via Micro USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: Four-LED status system
  • Size: 6.6 x 2.3 x 0.9 inches
  • Weight: 12.6 ounces
  • 18-month warranty

#2: Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD Portable Charger

Power Capacity:

The power capacity starts at 20,000mAh and the Output power capacity for this PD PowerCore from Anker can change quite a bit depending on what charging option you’re using and how the fast the device is charging. Most of the time you’re going to be able to at least 17,000mAh power capacity and this can lead you to charge smartphones just as much as the PowerCore 20100 can, which is about 7-8 times or more. Tablets can charge about twice if they’re the Mini size and full sized ones will be able to fair a full charge if you’re using the whole power capacity towards them.

However, the most useful part of this power bank is that you can charge either a Macbook or a Chromebook Pixel with it and as a result, the power capacity can charge both of those devices to their max potential.

Charging:    USB Port: 5V/2.4A     USB-C: 30 Watts of Power

The charging speed side of the power bank is one of the strongest portions of it and the most objective. This is because it just uses a single USB Output port and a USB-C port. That’s it. So for those that don’t own any USB-C compatible devices, this power bank isn’t that useful but for those that do, this power bank can extremely helpful as it’s a power bank that offers very fast charging with USB-C.

The USB port charges at a Max standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A, so it can charge nearly any devices that you connect to it at its max charging speed; although it doesn’t have Quick Charge. On the other hand, the main attraction for this power bank is the power delivery that it issues with its USB-C port. This is because the USB-C port, when used with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable becomes an Output port that sends out 30 Watts of power. This is not only enough to charge smartphones that are compatible with USB-C at their max charging speeds, but it’s also capable of charging Macbooks and Chromebook Pixels at fast charging speeds as well.

This makes the PowerCore PD almost like your carrying a wall charger that is powerful enough to charge those Laptops that use USB-C at or near their max charging speeds.

Recharging: 5V/2.4A

The recharging speed is faster than the PowerCore 20100, with its max recharge rate of 5V/2.4A. As long as you’re using a 2.4 Amp wall charger or higher, then this power bank will be able to full recharge within 10 hours. It’s important to remember, though, that the USB-C charging port is also an Input port and that you MUST use a USB-C to USB-A charging cable to recharge the 20,000mAh power bank.

Specs of the Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD Portable Charger:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 20,000mAh             Real Capacity: 18,000mAh
  • Output:   USB Charging- 5V/2.4A        USB Type-C – 5V ⎓ 3A / 9V ⎓ 3A / 12 V⎓ 2.5A / 14.5V ⎓ 2.1A / 20V ⎓ 1.5A
  • Input: 5V/2.4A Via Micro-USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity
  • Size: 6.7 x 3.0 x 0.9 inches
  • Weight: 12 Ounces

#3: EasyAcc 2nd Gen. 15,000mAh Power Bank

Power Capacity:

The usual case with power banks that have 3 charging ports is that their power capacities are supposed to be larger because the more devices that you charge at the same time, the more power capacity that is burned. That’s not really the case with the EasyAcc 15,000mAh power bank and us at Charger Harbor feel that is just fine. This is because since there’s such a variety of ways to charge a number of devices that you want, you can control the amount of power capacity that you want to use.

This case, the Output power capacity can fluctuate a lot depending on what devices you’re charging, how many devices you’re charging and what speeds they’re charging at. With that said, if you’re charging 2 devices at the same time, most of the time, then the power bank will average at about 12,000mAh of Output power capacity. This is enough to charge most smartphones about 4 times or more. However, it’s important to remember that if you’re charging 2 or 3 devices at the same time, then the power capacity is being split with those 3 devices.

As a result, if you wanted to charge a Mini tablet to full power, then it’s best to charge it alone. Or if you want to charge a Full sized tablet to its full power capacity, then it’s best to charge it alone as well, so the power capacity isn’t being burned towards another device. Overall, even with its many charging ports, the power bank is still very capable of keeping up with its rather intermediate power capacity.

Charging:      Per Port: 5V/2.4A    Max Output: 4.8A

One of the best parts of this EasyAcc power bank is the charging speed and this is mainly because the power design among the charging ports is fantastic. Each of the 3 charging ports is capable of charging at 5V/2.4A, which is the Max standard charging speed. The Max Output of the power bank is 4.8A. So you can potentially charge 2 iPads at the same time, and have them both be charging at their max charging speeds. Adding another iPads, and charge 3 iPads at the same would put the max charging speed for each port at 1.6 Amps each. That’s not too bad since even when the power bank is being pushed to its limits, the charging speed is still above 1 single Amp.

So if you’re charging 3 smartphones at once, the most likely result is that they’re all going to be able to charge at their max charging speeds or at least close to it. That’s the part that we like the most. This power bank knows what it’s getting itself into and it knows how to handle what is expected from it. Fast charging while still maintaining multiple charging ports.

Recharging      5V/2.0A

If you’re using a 2 Amp wall charger, the power bank will be able to charge at its max charging speed and this will result in a full recharge in 7-8 hours.

Portability:

It’s a moderately large power bank but there’s nothing too big about its dimensions or too heavy for its size; we like to think that it’s the size that it’s mean to be.

This is because the power bank has a length of 5.9 inches, a width of 2.8 inches, and a thickness of 0.8 inches. It weighs 11.8 ounces, so it’s not even pounding, as most 3-port power banks most are. Although, the reason that it’s not too heavy for having 3 charging ports is mainly because of the power capacity. Since the power capacity is quite, this means less installation of battery cells and that means an overall lighter power bank.

Specs of the EasyAcc 2nd Gen. 15,000mAh Power Bank:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 15,000mAh             Real Capacity: 12,000mAh
  • Output:   Max Output: Per Port: 5V/2.4A | Max Output: 4.8A
  • Input: 5V/2.0A Via Micro-USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity
  • Size: 5.9 x 2.8 x 0.8 inches
  • Weight: 11.8 Ounces

#4: CHOETECH 20,000mAh Portable Power Bank Charger

Power Capacity:

The power capacity of this CHOETECH power banks starts at a high 20,000mAh power capacity and with its 2 charging ports, the Output power capacity is going to change on what the charging speeds of those 2 ports are. This is mainly because one of the charging only offers a 5V/1.0A charging speeds and the other one is a Quick Charge 3.0 port that Outputs speeds of 5V/3A, 9V/2A, and 12V/1.5A. With that said, in our Charger Harbor official review of this CHOETECH power bank, we stated that if you’re using about 2.5 Amps at most during charging, that you’d get about 16,000mAh of Output power capacity.

16,000mAh of power is still a lot of power and a lot can be done with it by charging smartphones lots of time; so much so that you this power bank can last for weeks if you’re only using it to charge smartphones. As for tablets, the best way to charge tablets with this power bank is to charge them alone. This way, Mini tablets will be able to charge to their full battery capacities and still leave the power bank with more power to spare. If you want to charge a Full Sized tablet to its full power then charging it alone is mandatory, however, it will use up the entirety of the power capacity.

Charging:    Port 1: 5V/1.0A  |  Port 2: 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A

The charging aspect of the power bank is pretty good and yet there’s nothing too special about it. On one hand, it has a simple USB Port that Outputs 5V/1.0A charging speed and although that’s not a very fast charging speed it does well to keep the Output power capacity pretty high as the conversion rate is better.

However, if you plan to purchase this power bank, the most used port will be the Quick Charge 3.0 port. Not only can Quick Charge 3.0 and 2.0 charge at their max charging speeds; you can also use this port with standard charging devices and they’ll be able to charge at their max charging speed, by even accommodating to charge iPads at their max charging speed of 5V/2.4A.

Recharging:    Input(Micro): 5V/2.4A, 9V/2A | Input(lightning port): 5V/2.4A

There are 2 ways to recharge this power banks and this was mainly done so iPhone users wouldn’t have hang onto a Micro-USB charging cable to JUST recharge the power bank.

With that said, though, even though there are a Micro-USB and Lightning port on the power bank, you can’t use both of the Input ports at the same time to recharge the power bank faster. Although the recharge of both of them are nearly identical by providing a Max standard charging speed of 5V/2.4. If you’re using a 2.4 Amp wall charger or higher, this power bank can be fully recharged in 8-9 hours.

Portability:

It’s a small enough power bank that you could hold it and use it if you wanted to. Although the more likely option that you’re going to be using this power bank is by setting it down and using it, mainly because of its heavy weight.

The length of this CHOTECH power bank is 5.7 inches, it has a width of 2.9 inches, and a thickness of 0.9 inches. The weight is 12.5 ounces. So the portability side of isn’t what makes it one the best power banks, rather its power that it’s capable of providing through its charging and power capacity.

Specs of the CHOETECH 20,000mAh Portable Power Bank Charger:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 20,000mAh             Real Capacity: 16,000mAh

#5: Anker 2nd PowerCore 20000

Power Capacity:

Yes, we’re right back to Anker and for good reasons too. This is because the 2nd PowerCore 20000 is one of Anker’s newest and very well, their best power bank that they currently have released.

Starting with their power capacity, it doesn’t do as well as its other power banks but to be completely honest, since this power bank has 3 charging ports, it’s going to matter more on a number of devices that you’re charging all at once, and the Max Output that the power bank is outputting. In the review of the 2nd PowerCore, we stated that if the user is charging 2 devices at once with an output of 3.5A of 6.0A being released from the power bank, then the power capacity would be about 17,000mAh. It’s important to remember that this power bank in particular from Anker does not feature Panasonic battery cells, so, therefore, the Output power capacity might not be as good as other Anker power banks.

Of course, the usage of 3 charging ports leaves the amount of power capacity that you can use, very open. If you plan on only charging smartphones, then you can get about 8 or more full charges for most smartphones, and that can lead the portable charger to last weeks without needing a recharge. Charging a tablet isn’t a problem either whether it’s Mini ones that are able to charge twice or Full-sized tablets that can charge 1 full time by using the entire power capacity of the power bank.

Charging:   Per Port: 5V/3.0A     Max Output: 6 Amps

The most useful part of the 2nd PowerCore is the 3 charging ports. Sure, you can charge 3 devices at once, but the real quality is that each of the Output charging ports is able to output 5V/3.0A, this charging speed is nearly close to Quick Charge speeds and even though this power bank doesn’t feature Quick Charge it comes close to reaching it. As a result, Non-Quick Charge and Quick Charge compatible devices will be able to charge near or at their max charging speeds.

Not only is the individual capabilities of the charging ports impressive, it’s also the Max Output that is able to Output 6 Amps at once. So even if you’re pushing the power bank’s charging speeds through their limits with each port; each port will be able to Output 5V/2.0A  at the same time, and that’s still enough charging power to charge most power bank at their max charging speed.

Recharging:     Per Micro-USB Input Port: 5V/2.0A     Max Input: 4A

When we say that this is one the best power banks on the market we mean it. Not only is the power capacity and Output charging impressive, it’s also the recharging that blows us away. This is because the 2nd PowerCore uses 2 Micro-USB Input charging ports. Each of the ports is able to charge at 5V/2.0A and when you’re using the 2 Micro-USB Input ports at the same time, the power bank recharges at 4 Amps. This results in the 20,000mAh being able to recharge in 6 hours or under!

Portability:

It’s best to just set this power bank down and use it. This is mainly because of its rather large dimensions of having a length of 6.2 inches, a width of 2.6 inches, and a thickness of 1.1 inches. The weight is 12.3 ounces. Of course, since this power bank has 3 charging ports and if you plan on charging 2 devices at once or more, then it’s best to set it down.

Specs of the Anker 2nd PowerCore 20000:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 20,000mAh            Real Capacity: 17,000mAh
  • Output:   Per Port: 5V/3.0A       Max Output: 6 Amps
  • Input:      Both Micro-USB Input Ports: 5V/2.0A       Max Input: 4 Amps
  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators

#6: Type-C/Quick Charge 13,400mAh Lumsing Power Bank

 

Power Capacity:

The power capacity ranges within this power bank differ quite a bit. With this Lumsing power bank, the power capacity is rather on the low side, but for what’s it’s built for, this power bank does just fine with what it’s got.

Starting out this Lumsing portable charger has a power capacity of 13,000mAh and within our review of this charger, we mentioned 2 very possible alternatives for the Output power capacity. It can either be 11,000mAh or 9,000mAh depending on whether you’re using the 2 Output charging options that are Quick Charge 3.0 and USB-C. If you’re using both at the same time, then it’s very likely that you’ll be using a power capacity of about 9,000mAh and if you’re only using a single charging port then you’re going to fair about 11,000mAh.

With that kind of power capacity, just enough can be done with this power bank. What we mean to say is that it’s great to use with smartphones because it can charge them about 4 times or more. If you’re charging the tablet, then it can fair well with Mini sized ones, and Full-sized tablets can’t fair too well since they’re double the capacity of this power bank.

Charging:   Quick Charge 3.0 Port: 5V-12V/3.0A      Type-C Output: 5V/3.1A

The charging options of this power bank are quite thin and focused. This is because the USB charging port has Quick Charge 3.0 and it will best accommodate those that have Quick Charge compatible devices. With that said, though, the Quick Charge USB port is still able to charge standard charging devices at their max charging speeds.

Then there’s the USB-C port that can be used at an Output port. For it to be used as an Output port, you have to use a USB-C to USB-C charging cable and you have to own a device that actually uses a USB-C compatible device. It has an Output charging speed of 5V/3.1A and that’s basically Quick Charge levels of charging speed.

Recharging:        Micro-USB: 5V/2.5A    Type-C: 5V/2.5A

Recharging can be done through 2 Input charging ports. There’s the Micro-USB one and the Type-C one. Unfortunately, you can’t use both of the Input ports at the same time to charge the power bank double the speed.

Although, both of the Input ports can recharge at the same max rate and that can do by using a Quick Charge wall charger which can do a full recharge within 5-6 hours.

Portability:

It’s a small power bank and even though most of its dimensions are small, this doesn’t mean that it’s going to fit into your pocket. The length is 4.4 inches, it has a width of 4.3 inches, and a thickness of 1.6 inches. So it’s really small that you can easily fit this into your hand, but the thickness of it is really large so fitting it into a pocket is quite impossible. Then there’s the weight that’s nearly a pound at 12.8 ounces.

Specs of the Type-C/Quick Charge 13,400mAh Lumsing Power Bank:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 13,400mAh             Real Capacity: 9,000mAh – 11,000mAh
  • Output:   Quick Charge 3.0 Port: 5V-12V/3.0A      Type-C Output: 5V/3.1A
  • Input: Micro-USB: 5V/2.5A    Type-C: 5V/2.5A

#7: EasyAcc 20,000mAh Rugged Power Bank

Power Capacity:

Power capacity starts at a hefty 20,000mAh and that can turn into a 16,000mAh of power capacity that you can actually use during charging. Even with the Output power capacity being lower than the initial one, this is actually pretty good since this high power capacity power bank is able to charge lots of different sized devices lots of times.

Smartphones can obviously charge 5 times or more, well that’s for smartphones at least. Then there are the Mini sized tablets that can charge twice to full if you’re using the entirety of the power capacity that this rugged power bank has to offer. Even Full Sized tablets can charge to their full potential if you’re using the entire power capacity.

Overall, for a rugged outdoor power bank, it has a perfect amount of power capacity that can very well last you for days when you’re out camping or hiking. Just make sure that you check the LED Power capacity displays so you’re not too deep into the woods and stuck without power.

Charging:    Port 1 – 5V/2.4A       Port 2 – 5V/1.0A      Total Output – 3.4A

Not many waterproof power banks have their focus on charging power; this goes for their power capacity and charging speeds whether we’re talking about the Output or Input. The EasyAcc rugged power bank does a great job at providing fast charging even when you’re not far from civilization.

The first port offers a Max Standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A, so it can charge standard charging devices at their max charging speeds, so this means that the 2.4 Amp port can charge tablets like iPads at their max charging speed. Then there’s the 5V/1.0A port that is meant to charge smartphones. However, if you’re not using the 2.4 Amp port with a tablet, it’s best to use the 2.4 Amp port by default because it’ll basically cover any device to charge at its max charging speed.

Recharging:    5V/2.0A

All the powering aspects of this power bank are very powerful, expect for the recharge rate. The max recharge of this power bank is 5V/2.0A, and even if you’re using a 2 Amp wall charger to recharge the power bank at its fastest charging speed, it will still take 12 hours to fully recharge it.

Portability:

It’s a large power bank and for a power bank that is built to be waterproof, dustproof and a shockproof, it kind of has to be. It has a length of 6.3 inches, a width of 3.5 inches, and a 1.1-inch thickness. It’s also quite heavy at a weight of 1.2 pounds. Most of the time, you’re either going to be holding it or be placing it into a bag or any container for that matter.

That is mainly because there’s a lack of a place a carabiner and attach the power bank to your backpack while you’re hiking.

Specs of the EasyAcc 20,000mAh Rugged Power Bank:

#8: RAVPower 20,100mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge 3.0

Power Capacity:

The usual case when you’re charging with a power bank that has lots of charging ports is that the Output power capacity will fluctuate a lot depending on how many devices that you’re charging all at once. With that said, in the reviews for this RAVPower 20,100mAh power bank, we mentioned that if you’re using it moderately, which means that if you’re charging 2 devices with it at most; then this power bank will be able to provide around 16,000mAh – 17,000mAh of power capacity for you to actually use.

These kind of portable chargers are tyrants when it comes to charging devices because it can charge most devices multiple times. Smartphones are VERY easy to charge since you can charge most smartphones about 5-6 times. If you’re charging Mini sized tablets then the power bank can do about 2 full charges. For a fully sized tablet, this power bank will be able to charge those to full, but only if you’re charging a full sized tablet alone so it can take full advantage of the power capacity.

This RAVPower high capacity power bank is able to hand itself very well with its 3 charging ports, since it has lots of charging ports, even if you’re charging 3 devices at once, it can do very well to charge each device to a respectable amount.

Charging:     iSmart Port: 5V/2.4A        Quick Charge port: 5V/2.4A, 6.5V-9V/1.5A, and 9V-12V/1.2A       Type-C (Output):  5V/3.0A

Three options to charge and each of the charging options to charge with this power bank is very fast.

There’s the standard  USB Port that has a Max Standard charging rate of 5V/2.4A and this will be able to charge all your standard charging devices at their max charging speeds. Not only is the iSmart portable to offer a Max charging speed of 5V/2.4A, the Quick Charge port is also able to deliver such a charging speed.

So the Quick Charge port is a Quick Charge port to a certain extent and this is mainly because the max charging rate of it is the only 5V/2.4A. A 2.4 Amp charging rate is fast for standard devices but the max charging speed for Quick Charge is supposed to be 3 Amps with increased Voltage. With that said, though, it’s still Quick Charge regardless since the charging speed can either become 1.5 Amps or 1.2 Amps with increased Voltage. So Quick Charge compatible devices will still be able to charge very quickly.

Then there’s the Type-C charging port that is able to be used as an Output port if you’re using it with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable and with a USB-C compatible device. The charging speed of the Typ-C port being used as an Output port is 5V/3.0A, which is near Quick Charge speeds and you can expect for your USB-C compatible smartphone to charge at its max charging speed, or at least close to it.

Recharging:    Micro-USB Input Port: 5V/2.0A     USB-C Input Port: 5V/3.0A

There are 2 options to recharge the power bank with. It’s either to be recharged using the Micro-USB Input port that can charge at its max speed of 5V/2.0A, so you can use a 2 Amp wall charger if you want to use the Micro-USB Input port to its full potential.

Or you can use the Type-C port as an Input port by using a USB-C to USB-A charging cable with a Quick Charge wall charger, and that way, the power bank will be able to recharge to its full power capacity within 4.5 hours. This is because the max recharge rate from the USB-C port is 5V/3.0A, so the only wall charger that can provide the power to its limit is a Quick Charge USB wall charger.

Portability:

It has a length of 6.8 inches, a width of 3.1 inches, and a thickness of 0.8 inches. It’s large and it’s most meant to be placed down and used; not only because of its big dimensions but also because it weighs 13 ounces.

#9: PowerCore+ 20100 with USB-C

Power Capacity:

This PowerCore+ 20100 is very much similar to the first power bank on this list, the PowerCore 20100. However, the only difference between this version and the normal PowerCore is that this one features a USB-C port that can be used as an Output port and is also used to recharge the power bank by being used as an Input port.

So the power capacity is basically the same as the PowerCore 20100 and Anker has stated that most of the time you’ll be getting an 80% conversion rate with this power bank. This results in the portable charger having an about 16,000mAh of Output power capacity and that’s enough to charge any small devices like smartphones about 6 times or more. Charging larger devices like tablets can do very well, but the best way to charge tablets with this PowerCore+ is to do the charging alone with those kinds of devices. This is mainly because if you’re charging those larger battery capacity devices alone, then the power capacity is being focused in on just that device.

It’s a great power bank that can last for weeks depending on your usage and will definitely last for weeks if you’re charging only smartphones with it.

Charging:  Both USB Port: 5V/2.4A for Each  Type-C: 3A  Max Output: 6A

With the addition of the USB-C port, this power bank has a total of 3 Output charging ports to it and this means that you can charge 3 devices at the same time.

There’s the 2 USB Output charging ports that are basically the same as the ones on the PowerCore 20100, and they’re able to Output 2.4 Amps each. The charging power on the USB-C is 5V/3.0A and you can use it as an Output port just as you would with many other power banks; by using a USB-C to USB-C charging cable. It’s compatible to charge devices that use USB-C to charge and this goes for smartphones AND larger devices like MacBooks and Chromebook Pixel.

With that said, though, just because this power bank can charge Macbooks and Chromebooks doesn’t mean that it’ll charge them at a fast charging speed, or near those devices max charging speed. Altogether, the power bank can Output 6 Amps at once, and that means that even when you’re pushing the charging power to its limits, it can still Output 2 Amps out of each of its charging ports which are still enough to charge most devices at quite a fast rate.

Recharging:  5V/2.4A

Recharging is done through the USB-C port and if you’re using a 2.4 Amp wall charger or higher to recharge the PowerCore+ 20100 power bank, then it’ll be able to recharge to full within 10-11 hours.

Portability:

It’s portable in the way of placing it into a bag and using it once you’re comfortable at your location that you plan on using it. That’s it, plain and simple.

We say that because the PowerCore+ has a length of 7.2 inches, a width of 2.4 inches, and a thickness of 0.9 inches. So not only is it large, the power bank is really heavy at 2 pounds.

Specs of the PowerCore+ 20100 with USB-C:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 20,100mAh            Real Capacity: 16,080mAh
  • Output:   Both USB Port: 5V/2.4A   USB-C: 3A
  • Input: 5V/2.4A Via Micro-USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: 8 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators
  • Size: 7.2 x 2.4 x 0.9 inches

#10: Lumina 15,000mAh Compact Portable Charger

Power Capacity:

It’s not the highest capacity power bank on this list, bit it’s just enough that it utilizes it well enough. That’s because the power capacity starts at 15,000mAh and can go down to about 11,000mAh – 12,000mAh. It’s with this power capacity that usage is best left to smartphones and smaller sized tablets because it charges smartphones many times over with no problems. If we’re talking about Mini sized tablets then it can give them 1 full charge and still leave about 20% remaining power capacity in the power bank. Charging full sized tablets will take the entire power capacity of this power bank, and even then, you’d still need about 4,000mAh of power to charge them fully.

Charging:  Per Port: 5V/2.4A    Max Output: 4.8A

The Lumina 15,000mAh power 2 Output charging ports and it does a great job at providing lots of power without any compromises. This is because the 2 Output ports are able to Output 2.4 Amps each and best of all, the max output of the Lumina charger is 4.8A. So both of the ports can output of 5V/2.4A charging speed at the same time since when they’re both being pushed to their limits, the max charging speed of 4.8A is reached.

This is a perfect charging speed for charging any USB chargeable device because it will most likely be able to charge it at its max charging speed. Even though this power bank doesn’t have Quick Charge, Quick Charge compatible devices will still be able to charge at very fast rates. Also, you can charge 2 tablets at their max charging speeds at the same time which is 2.4 Amps; ultimately this power bank is capable of the same charging power that the PowerCore 20100 and other portable chargers are able doing.

Recharging:    5V/2.0A

It’s recharged using Micro-USB Input port and you can recharge it at its max recharge rate of 5V/2.0A by using a 2 Amp wall charger; when you do that, then the power bank can be fully recharged in 7-8 hours.

Portability:

Being portable isn’t its strongest point with it being 6.7 inches in length, it has a width of 4.1 inches and a thickness of 0.6 inches. It’s also heavy at a weight of 1 pound. It’s best to set the beast down and use.

Specs of the Lumina 15,000 mAh Compact Portable Charger:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 15,000mAh             Real Capacity: 12,000mAh
  • Output:  Both Ports: 5V/2.4A    Max Output: 4.8A
  • Input: 5V/2.0A Via Micro-USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: LED Power Capacity Display in Numeric Value
  • Size: 6.7 x 4.1 x 0.6 inches

Best Medium 6,000mAh – 12,000mAh Power Banks

#1: Anker PowerCore 10,000 Portable Charger

Yes, we know that you’re probably not surprised and neither are we that the first spot on this list belongs to an Anker Power bank. With that said, Anker is after all on our top list of being one of the best power bank brands on the market and it only makes sense that one of their portable chargers makes it onto here.

Power Capacity

This power bank has an initial power capacity of 10,000mAh and that makes it very versatile even when the Output power capacity is 8,000mAh. So with that, you can still charge most smartphones about 4 times or more. For larger capacity smartphones like the Galaxy S7 and Edge version, this power bank can still fair very well. Even for tablets, this power capacity can do enough to charge them to a well off amount. If you’re charging Mini tablets like the iPad Mini series, then this can charge them to full. However, charging full sized tablets will have them charge about 3 quarters of the way through.

Charging: 5V/2.4A

The PowerCore 10000 only has 1 charging port and it makes the most out of it. We say that because it has an Output port that is able to output 5V/2.4A charging rate. This is the Max standard charging speed before a Quick Charge level of charging speed is reached. So even though this power bank doesn’t have Quick Charge it’s still enough power to charge most devices at their max charging speed. If you’re charging a tablet with this power bank then it’ll be able to charge at its max charging speed of 2.4 Amps.

Even when you’re charging smartphones that are compatible with Quick Charge this will do a great enough job. Overall, for something this small, and having a power capacity that can last for days, this charging speed is bound to make the charging speed exceptionally fast.

Recharging: 5V/2.0A

Recharge time is quite good, and this is true if you’re using a 2 Amp wall charger. Since the max recharging rate is 2 Amps, using a 2 Amp wall charger will be able to recharge this power bank to full within about 5-6 hours. Don’t use anything lower if you don’t want to wait double the time.

Portability

This is a very compact power bank charger because of its very small dimensions and what makes it even more compact is the weight. The length is 3.6 inches, it has a width of 2.4 inches, and a thickness of 0.9 inches. It has a weight of 6.4 ounces. This all means that this can fit into your pocket or you can hold it in your hand while you’re charging and using your smartphones at the same time.

At this power capacity, power banks can either be optimized to be very portable or they can be designed terribly and end up being extremely cumbersome. In this case, the PowerCore 10000 has been optimized regarding its size and weight so all the charging power can be taken anywhere!

Specs of the Anker PowerCore 10,000 Portable Charger:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 10,000mAh             Real Capacity: 8,000mAh
  • Output:   Max Output: 5V/2.4A
  • Input: 5V/2.0A Via Micro-USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators
  • Size: 3.6 x 2.4 x 0.9 inches
  • Weight: 6.4 Ounces

#2: RAVPower 10,050mAh Rugged Power Bank

Power Capacity:

The power capacity is that of the PowerCore 10000 and it has just a bit poorer capacity wth an Output power capacity of 7,500mAh. Even though the main attraction of this power bank isn’t exactly its power capacity it still does a good enough job that you’re able to get 4 full charges out of smartphones and you can get a full power capacity for Mini sized tablets. However, if we’re talking about full sized tablets this can charge them about halfway through.

Ultimately, the power capacity isn’t exactly enough for the purpose that this power bank was built for, which is to be a rugged one that you’d take into the outdoors. If you plan on camping in the outdoors for a few days this can be a bit of a stretch to use for its short longevity.

Charging:   Port 1: 5V/2.4A    Port 2: 5V/1.0A

The charging speeds for this power bank are exceptionally fantastic. It has 2 Output ports. One port has a Max Standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A and the other one is 5V/1.0A. The Max Output is 3.4 Amps, so you can take full advantage of charging power that either port has to offer.

However, if you want the fastest charging speed for your device then we recommend using the 2.4A port because the 1 Amp port will offer very slow charging. If you’re charging 2 devices at once, then it’s best to connect the tablet to the 2.4A port and smartphones to the 1A Port. Although, if you’re solely charging your smartphone then it’s best to default to just using the 2.4 Amp port.

We feel that the strongest part of this power bank isn’t necessarily the “Rugged” portion of it, rather it’s the use of 2 charging ports and the ability to charge 2 devices at once.

Recharging: 5V/2.0A

If you’re recharging the power bank with a 2 Amp wall charger, it’ll be able to recharge to full power in about 6-7 hours. Using a lower level Amperage wall charger will result in the recharge time being doubled.

Portability:

Most waterproof, dustproof and a shockproof power banks are larger than just a normal power bank; that’s not really the case here, though. Instead, this power bank is about the size an of a smartphone. It has a length of 4.6 inches, a width of 2.8 inches and a thickness of 0.9 inches. It’s even quite lightweight at 7.4 ounces. You can definitely hold it in a single hand if you’re charging just your smartphone.

Another really welcoming portable aspect is that this power bank has a small hook-able placing where you can place a carabiner on the charger and latch the power bank itself on a backpack.

Specs of the RAVPower Rugged Power Bank:

  • Capacity: 10,050mAh
  • Output: 2.4A For One Port / 1.0A For the Other Port
  • Input: 2.0A via Micro USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: Four-LED status system
  • Size: 4.6 x 2.8 x 0.9 inches
  • Weight: 7.4 ounces
  • 18-month warranty

#3: Tronsmart Presto 10,400mAh Power Bank

Power Capacity:

It loses about 2,000mAh of power capacity during charging and this results in the power bank having an Output power capacity of 8,400mAh. That’s enough power capacity to charge smartphones about 4 times or more. However, in comparison to some smartphones that have larger batteries, this power bank will be able to do around 2.5 full charges for those.

Tablets, on the other hand, aren’t really designed for power banks like these since the power capacity is quite low. It has an enough power capacity to charge most Mini tablets to their full charge about once. Full-sized tablets will fair about half a full charge. It’s also going to depend on how many devices you’re charging at once since the power bank has 1 USB Output port and a USB-C Output/Input port. Charging 2 devices at once can result in worse Output power capacities because more heat is being generated during charging.

Output Charging:

On the charging speed side, this power bank does a great job. It takes advantage of the newest and most powerful charging technologies that are currently available. This is because the USB Port features Quick Charge 3.0 and the USB-C port can be used as an Outport.

The Quick Charge port is able to output speeds of 6.5V-9V/2A or 9V-12V/1.5A, and these charging speeds are absolutely on the level that Quick Charge compatible devices are able to charge at. If don’t own a Quick Charge compatible device, that’s okay because the USB Port can still default to a 5V/2.4A charging speed and this means that Non-Compatible Quick Charge devices are able to charge at their max charging speeds as well.

Then there’s the USB-C port that can be used as an Output port by only a few users; we say this because you can only use the USB-C port as an Output port if you’re using a USB-C to USB-C charging cable, and of course if you’re using it with a device that charges with USB-C. So even though the charging that this power bank has to offer is very fast, the charging type that is available is quite explicit with providing the highest standard and not necessarily the widest range.

Recharging: 5V/3.0A

Recharging is done through the USB-C port and you can recharge it only with a USB-C to USB-A 3.0 charging cable. Also, the max recharge rate of the power bank is 5V/3.0A and this can only be done if you’re using a Quick Charge wall charger, which will result in the power bank being fully recharged within 5-6 hours. It’s one of the few power banks that requires that you use a Quick Charge wall charger to recharge it as fast as possible.

Portability:

It’s actually quite a large power bank but it’s manageable enough that you can hold it or even place it into your pocket. If you’re up to it at least.

This is because the Tronsmart has a length of 6.5 inches, a width of 3.4 inches, and a thickness 1.1. It’s actually heavier than we thought it was going to be at a weight of 10.4 ounces. So it’s quite heavy and large, ultimately we think that it’s best to just hold it.

Specs of the Tronsmart Presto 10,400mAh Power Bank:

  • Capacity:                 Advertised Capacity: 10,400mAh        Real Capacity: 8,400mAh
  • Output:  5V/1.0A
  • Input: 5V/3.0A

#4: AUKEY 10,000mAh Dual USB 3.1A Portable Charger

Power Capacity

It doesn’t have the best conversion rate, and what starts out as being a 10,000mAh power capacity initially becomes a power capacity of 7,500mAh. So you can still charge most smartphones about 4 times over and tablets can fair into either a full charge for Mini sized tablets and a half a charge for a larger, full sized tablets.

Even though the output power capacity that we mentioned is pretty poor, it really depends on the way that you’re using the power bank; such as charging 2 devices at once or just charging a single smartphone.

Charging:

This power bank has 2 Output charging ports. One of the ports is able to recharge at 2.1A charging speed and the other port is able to charge at 1.0A charging speed. It has a Max Output of 3.1A and this means that either port can take full advantage of its charging power. With that said, if you want the fastest charging speed, you should use the 2.1A port, as the 1.0A port is slower at charging.

Overall, the ability to charge 2 devices at once is very welcoming as the charging ports are very universal and you’ll be able to charge nearly any devices that are charged through a USB with it.

Recharging: 5V/2.1A

The max recharging speed for this power bank is 5V/2.1A. So if you’re using a  2.1 Amp wall charger to recharge this power bank, it will be fully recharged within 5-6 hours. Using anything lower will result in much longer recharging speeds.

Portability:

On the portability side, this power bank does very well as you either fit it into your pocket or you can simply hold it. This is because the power bank has a length of 3.5 inches, a width of 3.1 inches and a thickness of 0.9 inches. So it’s a very small portable charger, although it is quite heavy at 8.1 ounces which is about half a pound.

Specs of the AUKEY 10,000mAh Dual USB 3.1A Portable Charger:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 10,000mAh          Real Capacity: 7,500mAh
  • Output:   Max Output: Port 1: 5V/2.1A  |  Port 2: 5V/1.0A
  • Input: 5V/2.1A Via Micro-USB Input

#5: Anker PowerCore+ 10050 With Quick Charge 2.0

Power Capacity:

So we’re back with Anker and this time, Anker has another 1 Port power bank that has Quick Charge technology. The power capacity starts at 10,050mAh initially and it ultimately dumbs down to about 7,500mAh of Output power capacity during charging. With that said, though, the Output power capacity is going to depend on more on what you’re charging and how fast it’s charging.

Even with a power capacity of 7,500mAh, this power bank is going to be able to charge most small devices like smartphones about 4-5 times or more. The best thing is charging tablets as well, because since you have no choice but to charge a device alone, you’re going to be using the entire power capacity at a very focused level. As a result, this will result in Mini tablets being able to charge all the way through and full sized tablets to either charge halfway or 3 quarters of the way through.

Output Charging:

The main attraction for the PowreCore+ is the usage of Quick Charge 3.0 that not only ensures that standard, Non-Quick Charge devices can charge at their max charging speeds. It also ensures that this power bank is capable of charging Quick Charge devices at their max charging speeds.

If a Quick Charge smartphone is being charged with this power bank then its charging speeds will be the following of, 5-6V ⎓ 3A / 6-9V ⎓ 2A / 9-12V ⎓ 1.5A. It meets the standard of what Quick Charge is supposed to offer. Also, if you’re charging standard devices that don’t charge at Quick Charge speeds, then this power bank can default down to 5V/2.4A and this can result in those standard devices being able to recharge their max charging speeds.

The main attraction and overall benefit of this power bank are that it has it uses Quick Charge 3.0 and it’s basically universal with charging speeds that it’s able to provide.

Recharging: 5V/2.0A – 9V/2.0A

What we found strange when we reviewed this power bank is the slight difference it has with its recharging in comparison to similar power banks. It can charge at either a 5V/2.0A charging speed and a 9V/2.0A charging speed. This is why we recommend either using a 2 Amp or a higher charging speed wall charger.

This can make the power bank be able to recharge within 3.5 hours. Yeah, that’s a very fast recharging power bank!

Specs of the Anker PowerCore+ 10050 With Quick Charge 2.0:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 10,050mAh             Real Capacity: 7,000mAh
  • Output:     PowerIQ – 5V/2.4A       Quick Charge: 5-6V ⎓ 3A / 6-9V ⎓ 2A / 9-12V ⎓ 1.5A

#6: RAVPower 6,700mAh Power Bank

Power Capacity:

So far on this list of best power banks, we’ve got quite a few power banks that have 2 charging ports, however, we’ll now introduce some power banks that have just a single port.

This RAVPower portable has an initial power capacity of 6,700mAh and that becomes 5,000mAh of power capacity if you’re using the power bank at its full charging power. So this doesn’t meet the same power capacities as the other power banks on this list but that’s not a bad thing. This is mainly because this power bank is quite smaller.

So the power capacity is mainly meant to charge smartphones and it does well enough with providing 2 full charges to most smartphones. As for tablets, well, this isn’t the kind of power bank that you’d charge a tablet with. However, if you did, then it’d do about 3 quarters of a full charge for Mini sized tablets and a half a charge for a full sized tablet or maybe even less than that. The main thing to remember with this power bank is that the power capacity is going to last either 1 or 2 days of use. It’s much closer to that of a Mini sized power bank regarding its power capacity and size.

Charging:

Even though the power capacity isn’t exactly that high, the way you’re able to utilize it is really good because it has a Max standard charging speed of 2.4 Amps. You can charge any USB charging devices at their max charging speeds, although that’s excluding those devices that are compatible with Quick Charge and USB-C since those devices charge faster under certain technologies. With that said, if you’ve got a standard device then this power bank will be able to charge it at its max charging speed.

This stands very true for tablets that have a Max Standard charging speed 2.4 Amps and even though this power bank won’t be used very much with tablets, the charging power is still there at hand.

Recharging:

Recharging is very standard as you’ll be able to recharge this power bank at a charging rate of 5V/2.0A and if you’re using a 2 Amp wall charger you can recharge this power bank to its full power capacity in about 4-5 hours.

Portability:

The most noticeable aspect of this portable charger is just how small and light weight it is. It has a length of 3.5 inches, a width of 1.6 inches, and a thickness of 1 inch. It’s also quite lightweight at 4 ounces. Yes, it can fit into your pocket but ultimately the thickness is so great that you can’t fit this into your pocket along with your smartphones. Also, we highly recommend fitting it into your back pocket as it’ll be easier for mobility.

However, we found that simply holding this charger is the best option if you want the easiest user experience.

Specs of the RAVPower 6,700mAh Power Bank:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 6,700mAh             Real Capacity: 5,000mAh
  • Output: 5V/2.4A
  • Input: 5V/2.0A via Micro USB Input

#7: Zendure A2 Power Bank

Power Capacity:

The power capacity of this Zendure follows close the RAVPower portable charger in that it starts with a power capacity of 6,700mAh and that can go down to 5,000mAh of available power. This results in this power bank mainly being used to charge smartphones as most smartphones have lower battery capacities than this and they can get about 2-3 full charges.

Using it with tablets is a little bizarre as this power bank will charge even Mini tablets up to half way or possibly a bit more than half a charge. Charging full sized tablets will definitely make them charge only halfway and most of the time, even less than that.

Ultimately, this power bank is meant to be charged with lower capacity devices, because that way it can be used multiple times before it needs recharging.

Charging:

Most power banks with this design should have a fast charging speed and this stands true with Zendure’s charger as well. This Zendure portable charger has a single charging port that offers a max charging speed of 2.1A and this is enough to charge most smartphones at their max charging speeds. It comes close to reaching the max charging speed for tablets which is 2.4A, but that’s alright since charging a tablet with this power bank isn’t such a good experience anyways.

With that said, if you plan on charging small devices, they’ll be able to charge at a very fast charging speed.

Recharging:

The recharging speed is pretty good but it doesn’t push any boundaries. We say this because this power bank has a max recharge rate of 1.5A. Even though it’s within the 1 Amp range, using a 2 Amp wall charger is your best bet to charge it at its max recharging speed. With a 2 Amp wall charger, you’ll be able to recharge fully within 4-5 hours.

Portability:

On the portability side, this portable charger is indeed portable enough to be taken nearly anywhere. This is because it has a length of 3.7 inches, a width of 2 inches and a thickness of 1 inches. It’s really small and fitting this into your back pocket should pose no problems. On the weight side, it’s really light at a weight of 5 ounces. With the dimensions and weight combined, this has nearly as much easy portability as a Mini power bank does; plus you get the power capacity and powerful charging of a power bank.

Specs of the Zendure A2 Power Bank:

  • Capacity: 6,700mAh
  • Output: 5V/2.1A
  • Input: 5V/1.5A via Micro USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: Four-LED status system
  • Size: 3.7 x 2 x 1 inches

#8: Anker Astro E3 Ultra Compact 10,000mAh Portable Charger

Power Capacity

Bring it back to Anker one last time on this list. This is the Anker Astro E3 portable charger. It’s one of the best because of all its facets, and this is because none of them are mediocre and all of the parts of this portable charger have been near optimized for their potential.

The power capacity starts at 10,000mAh and during charging the Output power capacity goes down to 8,000mAh. This amount of power capacity is plenty for charging smartphones multiple times and it’s even enough to charge Mini sized tablets like the iPad Mini 1 and 2 versions near or at their full battery capacities. Full-sized tablets will be able to achieve about half of their battery capacities.

This power bank even has 2 charging ports, so you can potentially charge 2 smartphones to their full power capacities at the same while still having more power left over to use later.

Charging:

Anker likes to create quality products, it’s in their nature. This is why we absolutely love the Output charging capabilities of this power bank. Each of the 2 ports is able to Output 5V/2.4 Amps, which the Max standard charging rate. With that, you can charge most smartphones that aren’t compatible with Quick Charge at their max charging speeds. This is especially true for iPhones. You can even charge tablets at their max charging speeds, but only if you’re charging the tablet alone, and this is because the Astro E3 power bank has a Max Output of 3 Amps that is shared by both the charging ports.

So connecting another device while a tablet is charging will make the same current go to the other charging port. With that said, though. A shared charging speed in the case of charging smartphones is an overall better option because this way, the 2 smartphones that are charging at the same time will be charging at their max charging speeds. Rather than 1 port being 2.1A or 2.4A and the other one being 1 Amp; this power bank takes a more equivalent path that provides fast or at least standard charging for 2 devices charging at once.

Recharging:

By using a 2 Amp wall charger, you can recharge this power bank at its max charging speed and it can fully recharge within 5-6 hours.

Portability

The portability with the Astro E3 is one the best parts of the power banks other than the charging speed. It has a length of 5 inches, a width of 2.6 inches and a thickness of 0.65 inches. It’s nearly as small as a smartphone if you’re not counting the thickness of it; and if even if you are counting the thickness, this power bank can easily fit into your pocket, probably not with your smartphone but it can fit alone into a pocket very easily.

Holding it won’t pose any problems either because it only weighs 8 ounces.

Specs of the Anker Astro E3 Ultra Compact 10,000mAh Portable Charger:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 10,000mAh             Real Capacity: 8,000mAh
  • Output:   Max Output Per Port: 5V/2.4A     Max Output Overall: 3.0A

#9: Zendure A3 Portable Charger

Power Capacity:

It has a starting power capacity of 10,000mAh and that goes down to about 7,500mAh. We know that’s quite a drastic change but it’s still quite a lot depending on what you’re charging this power bank with. We say that because it’s best to charge this power bank with smartphones because it can charge most smartphones about 3-4 times or more for smaller battery capacity smartphones. It’s not the best power bank to charge a tablet with, but if you were to charge it with a tablet then you can charge Mini ones about to their full capacities or at least close. Full-sized tablets won’t fair too well with this Zendure power bank’s battery capacity as they’ll be able to charge only halfway through only.

Charging:

On the charging speed side, the Zendure A3 portable charger takes the same charging design that Anker has with the charging speed through each of the ports. Either of the 2 ports can Output 5V/2.1A, but then there’s the Max Output of 2.1 Amps. This means that the power bank can only have a Max Output of 2.1 Amps at any one time.

It’s lower than the Astro E3 that is also on this list but even so, we’re in full support for a power bank that has a shared charging current for its charging ports because it allows any device that’s connected to the power bank to charge either at its max charging speed or at a good enough charging speed.

Recharging:

The recharge rate sits at 5V/1.5A, and by using a 2 Amp Wall charger you’re able to recharge the Zendure A3 to its full power capacity within 8 hours.

Portability:

For its power capacity, and charging features, the design for this A3 is really amazing as you can easily hold it and you can even place it into your pocket; a lot of that can’t be said about most 10,000mAh power banks because some power banks haven’t reached that standard yet. With that, the length of the Zendure A3 is 3.8 inches, it has a width of 2.5 inches, and a thickness of 1 inch. It’s also really lightweight that makes it even better to hold and stay on you along with its small size with a weight of 7.2 ounces.

It brings a full power bank charging experience that takes versatility and power, combines it to make it one of the best Medium 6,000mAh – 12,000mAh power banks.

Specs of the Zendure A3 Portable Charger:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 10,000mAh            Real Capacity: 7,500mAh
  • Output:   Either Port: 5V/2.1A    Max Output: 5V/2.1A
  • Input: 5V/1.5A Via Micro-USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators

Best Slim Power Banks

best-slim-power-banks

At Charger Harbor we’ve already chosen what the Best Smallest power banks on the market. Those kind of portable chargers were the best in the category of providing just enough power capacity and being small enough that you could take them anywhere. With that said, they were all nearly different sizes and some were more portable than others.

More importantly, there was a specific category within the Best small power banks that could have their own category and that was the Slim power banks. Slim power banks have their own place in the charging tech world because they’re able to offer a superb portable experience and still hold onto their powerful charging, at least for some that is the case. A Slim portable charger is very useful because you can always place it into your pocket along with your smartphone and this means that you can charge your smartphone while it’s in your pocket. Although that’s still possible with a cylindrical and small power bank, in this case, it’s simply easier to use.

These Slim power banks have shown the best capabilities when it comes to power and portability. They have proven that just because they’re slim doesn’t mean that their capabilities are any less. These are the best slim power banks on the market.

#1: Viivant Slim Portable Power Bank

pic-1

There are very few Slim power banks like the Viivant Slim portable charger and this is mainly because of what it has in terms of its charging ports and the power that it’s able to provide.

Power Capacity

Starting with the power capacity first, this power bank is able to offer an initial power capacity of 5,000mAh and that is decreased down to 4,000mAh during charging because some power is lost during charging. With that power capacity, you’ll be able to charge a smartphone about 2 times and that’s about it. Even though it won’t charge most smartphone too many times, it does a great job at charging even high battery capacity smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to their full power capacities.

Charging

Okay, so the power capacity does just good enough of a job but the charging that it’s able to deliver is really awesome and bizarre at the same time, we say this because the Viivant power bank has 2 Output charging ports if you’re charging 2 smartphones with the power bank then you can expect a half charge for each of them. 1 Port is able to Output 2.1 Amps of charging speed and that’s actually a really fast charging rate, and then the other one is able to Output 1.0 Amp of charging speed which is quite slow. This means that the power bank has a Max Output Speed of 3.1A and for a Slim power bank to have 2 charging ports is amazing. For the charging ports to have 2.1A and 1.0A charging speed is what makes it phenomenal.

Recharging

The recharging speed is another reason that this is one of the best slim power banks, with it being able to recharge at 2.0 Amps and this will result in the power bank being able to fully recharge within 4-5 hours.

Portability

Then there’s the portable aspect of it with it being the same size as a smartphone. The length of the power bank is 5.4 inches, it has a width of 2.6 inches and the thickness is 0.3 inches. It can easily fit into your pocket alone or along with your smartphone because it’s basically the size of a smartphone. Holding it and using it, holds no problems either.

Specs of the Viivant Slim Portable Power Bank:

  • Capacity:            Advertised: 5,000mAh             Real Capacity: 4,000mAh
  • Output:      Port 1: 5V/2.1A      Port 2: 5V/1.0A
  • Input: 5V/2.0A via Micro USB Input
  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Power Indicators
  • Size: 0.31 x2.7 x 5.4 inches
  • Weight: 5.1 ounces

          #2: Anker PowerCore 5000 Slim

          This Anker Slim power bank is a slim power bank that not only holds its remarkable functions with it being slim but it’s also the way its design and the way you’re able to use it that makes it more convenient to use.

          Power Capacity

          The power capacity is able, to begin with, 5,000mAh of power, and then it decreases down to 4,000mAh of power capacity during charging. This kind of Output power capacity is very common among small power banks and especially when it comes to slim power banks. Just like the Viivant Slim, this Anker PowerCore Slim is going to be able to charge some smartphones 2 times, but a smartphone with a larger than normal battery capacity will be able to charge once or 1.5 times. With that said, it actually has a pretty good power capacity that can either last you a single day or 2 days.

          Charging

          Along with just enough power capacity comes a single Output port that is able to charge at 5V/2.0A, this means that you can charge nearly any smartphone at its max charging speed, expect for smartphones that are Quick Charge compatible. If there’s one thing that is rare but very welcome with small and slim power banks alike, it’s that fast charging is hard to come by with them; however, when it does come by, it’s very welcoming because you can charge your smartphone at a very fast charging speed even with something as portable as this.

          Portability

          Speaking of its portability, this slim power bank does a great job as basically acting as a second smartphone. It’s got a length of 5 inches, a width of 2.5 inches and thickness of 0.4 inches. It can easily fit into your pocket and if you’re up for it, you can even fit the PowerCore Slim and your smartphone into the same pocket. The portability aspect of it is great, but that’s not exactly the main attraction.

          Usability

          The main attraction is the way that you can use the PowerCore and how comfortable it is to use. The PowerCore Slim has a curved back that makes it highly ergonomic and easy to hold. You can stack your smartphone on a rubber side that has indented grooves and this will allow you to answer phone calls while holding onto the power bank and your smartphone at the same time.

          Specs of the Anker PowerCore 5000 Slim:

          • Capacity:            Advertised: 5,000mAh             Real Capacity: 4,000mAh
          • Output:      5V2.0A
          • Input: 5V/2.0A via Micro USB Input

                  #3: Jackery Air 6

                  pic-4

                  Sometimes extreme simplicity is the best way to go and that’s what this Slim Jackery Air 6 power bank is able to offer.

                  This is on the list of the Best Slim power banks because the Jackery Air 6 takes it down to the bare minimum of what a slim power bank is able to offer. At times the bare minimum is all we really need and that’s what this Jackery Air 6 basically is; the bare minimum and by doing so it’s able to excel itself with the way you can use it.

                  Power Capacity

                  Starting out with its power capacity, we’ll be honest and say that the power capacity isn’t anything special with it initially being 3,000mAh and it burns down to about 2,500mAh of power capacity during charging. So I guess it can go without saying but I’ll go ahead and say it anyways is that this power bank is only going to charge your smartphone 1 time and possibly even less. If you have a smartphone with a larger battery capacity, then it likely won’t be able to charge it to its max power level.

                  Charging

                  Additionally, the charging speed is 5V/1.0A and as a result, it won’t be able to charge most of your devices at their max charging speed but on the bright side, the power bank is able to recharge at 2 Amps and it will be ready at full charge in about 1-2 hours. So even though the power capacity is quite low, you can very likely use this power bank again the same day you used it.

                  Portability

                  Moving into the portability, it’s the smallest and slimmest power bank on this list. The Jackery Air 6 is 4.6 inches in length, it has a width of 2.4 inches and it has a thickness of 0.3 inches. The weight is only 3.4 ounces. A Slim power bank like this will have no problems going into your pocket along with your smartphone and we feel that it can very well go anywhere you take it. All the functional components are the same side and power bank doesn’t even waste any space or take the chance of being bigger than it needs to be by using only one LED power capacity indicator light that changes colors to show different power capacity levels.

                  Specs of the Jackery Air 6 Power Bank:

                  • Capacity:                 Advertised Capacity: 3,000mAh        Real Capacity: 2,500mAh
                  • Output:  5V/1.0A
                  • Input: 5V/2.0A  Via Micro-USB

                  • Size: 4.6 x 0.3 x 2.4 inches
                  • Weight: 3.4 ounces

                          #4: Aukey 3,600mAh Portable Charger

                          pic-1

                          Lastly, of the best Slim power bank is this Aukey Slim portable charger. It may not be as slim as the other portable chargers within this list but it does well enough by being able to be at the same portability level that the other slim power banks are able to achieve.

                          Power Capacity

                          It does a good job at retaining a well off power capacity by it being initially 3,600mAh and then the actual Output power capacity is 3,000mAh. This is enough power capacity to charge most smartphones to their full power capacities and we think that it’s one of the best Output power capacities that all small power banks should aim for since many smartphones are able to match up to this amount of power.

                          Charging

                          On the charging speed side, this is where the Aukey Slim portable charger does well enough and accommodates itself to most smartphones. This is because the Output charging speed is 1.5 Amps and most even though some smartphones can charge faster than this, this charging speed makes sure that most smartphones are able to charge at their max charging speed. The recharging speed is fast enough with it being 1 Amp and it can fully recharge the power bank within 2-3 hours. The most noticeable thing about this power bank is that it uses a Lightning Input port, instead of the more commonly used Micro-USB Input port. This means that iPhones users can simply use their Lightning charging cables to recharge the power bank and the Android users will have to own a Lightning cable to recharge it. It’s quite a rare case of a switcharoo.

                          Portability

                          The portability of it is is really good and it’s basically the size of a smartphone, if not smaller than one. It has a length of 4.9 inches, a width of 1.8 inches and a thickness of 0.5 inches. So the width and length are quite a lot shorter than other slim power banks, and the thickness is just a bit thicker than others. With that said, the power bank can still fit into your pocket, although it’s best to just place it into a pocket alone and keep your smartphone separate at the thickness combined with the power bank and your smartphone can be quite uncomfortable.

                                  • Very small size that can fit into your pocket and it's also really easy to hold.
                                  • Fast Enough charging rate that is great for smartphones.
                                  • Easy to use and doesn't even have a power button. Charging automatically starts.

                                  Cons

                                  • Chance of Lithium Polymer batteries expanding and the structure of the power bank expanding with it.
                                  • Recharge rate could be faster with it only being at 1 Amp
                                  • Power Capacity system is only a single dot that change into 3 colors depending on power capacity.

                                  Conclusion:

                                  At Charger Harbor, we heavily the value that Slim power banks are able to offer in the way of portable power. They can provide a much better portable experience with their flat designs and by doing so, they’re basically like owning a second smartphone. The ability to place it into your pocket and have to smartphone charging while you’re walking or doing a task is something that needs to be more common. Making charging a passive habit should be a goal and that’s what Slim power banks are able to achieve.

                                  The Best and Top Power Bank Brands Ever Made

                                  the-best-power-bank-brand-en-2-0

                                  One of the best questions you can ask yourself is: “What company should I purchase my power bank from?” It’s with this questions is where your quest of a quality power bank will come from.

                                  Why Should I Care About Where I Purchase my Power Bank From?

                                  You need to pay close attention from what brand you purchase your power bank from because each brand approaches their products differently, and when we’re dealing with a charging electronic such as portable chargers, it’s vital to know who you’re buying it from and why.

                                  Power banks these days aren’t exactly an “Easy” to make consumer electronic but it’s actually quite difficult to make quality ones and ones that are able to provide a superior charging experience than the rest. It’s easy to just create a plain power bank that can charge but it takes a company to know what it’s doing to create a power bank that is Powerful, beautifully designed, well built and amazingly reliable. The kind of companies that create power banks that are worth getting are companies that know portable chargers is a consumer electronic that should be kept up to date and hold quality when it  comes to its power capacity, charging speed and design. The build of the power bank has to be good as well, after all, what good is something if it doesn’t work?

                                  These Top Power Bank Brands are consistently showing that they’re capable of pushing the limits of what it means to deliver a powerful charging experience and constantly pushing to create better products with all the latest tech, while not scamming their customer into insanely high prices.

                                  Let’s get started on what companies make some the best power banks on earth.

                                  #1 Anker

                                   

                                  anker

                                  Here at Charger Harbor we’ve done Plenty of reviews for Anker products. From their wall chargers to their power banks. If there’s one thing that’s very true is that they’re very capable of creating great charging electronic products.

                                  This is because Anker takes advantage of all the latest charging technology and knows the standards of what power banks should feature in a modern day.

                                  PowerIQ and Voltage Boost

                                  PowerIQ and Voltage Boost are two of the most prevalent charging technologies that Anker uses. The PowerIQ technology is able to deliver a max charging speed to the device it’s charging. Even though every one of Anker’s power banks has this kind of technology it doesn’t mean that it will actually charge the device connected to at its max charging speed. What PowerIQ does mean is that it will use all of its available power to charge the device that is connected to the power bank. This means if you’re using a something like the PowerCore+ Mini to charge a tablet, then the tablet will charge at 1 Amp only because that’s all the power bank is capable of.

                                  Going into higher capacity power banks something like the PowerCore 20100, where both of the charging ports are 2.4A, that’s where PowerIQ is truly able to shine as Anker’s portables chargers can charge nearly any device connected to it at its max charging speed.

                                  The Voltage Boost technology is able to accommodate the PowerIQ charging, and what Voltage Boost is able to do is that it can stabilize charging speed by increasing and making Voltage the same during the charging process for a device. This is very important because even though Amperage during charging is important, so is the consistency of it; and that is what Voltage Boost is able to deliver.

                                  Build Quality

                                  The Build Quality of the Anker products is by the far one of the best we’ve seen.

                                  Structure and material used isn’t exactly special since most of their power banks are made of plastic and Aluminum. However, it’s the way that they go about making their chargers really sturdy. We’re honestly not sure what they do to make their power banks structurally strong but whatever it is, we really hope that Anker doesn’t stop doing it. Although it might be because they use very few pieces with their chargers and this way, all the components are able to hold together much more easily.

                                  Not only is the structure of their power banks great, it’s what’s on the inside that counts just as much with their power banks featuring Anker’s Multi Safe-Protection system that is available to offer safety tech that makes charging with their portable chargers safe with every use. There are few times that their chargers will heat up and this is mainly due to their usage of technology that is able to manage temperature in an efficient way.

                                  Innovation at Every Turn with Charging Speed, Size and Charging Technology

                                  If there’s one thing that is apparent with Anker, it’s that they know what technology standard they need to build for their customers. It’s no secret that people want fast charging but that’s not what every charging technology company gives.

                                  Anker is not about mediocrity. This is because when they have a high capacity power bank it either features 2.4 Amp per port or a Quick Charge port. Also, now that we mention it, Anker is a very big user and implements Qualcomm Quick Charge into many of their power banks. Even though Quick Charge is compatible with certain devices; for those that do have Quick Charge compatible devices, the ability to use fast charging while on the go is completely possible because Anker even implements this fast charging technology into small power banks like the PowerCore 10000 with Quick Charge 3.0.

                                  Another thing about portable chargers is that they should be as portable as possible and be small and light enough to take them anywhere. This is what Anker is able to accomplish with nearly every one of its power banks. Yes, we mean every single one, even the ones that are high capacity power banks can still be held in a single hand. Not only that, Anker’s power banks match what they’re capable of. A 5,000mAh power bank is still very small and so is a 10,000mAh one. They’re able to fit more power capacity into small spaces and that’s what consumers want.

                                  Along with the fast charging, special charging, and small sizes; there’s also the innovation in rising charging technologies like USB Type-C that Anker uses very well with its PowerCore 20100 with Type-C Output.

                                  #2 Aukey

                                  We consider Aukey to be Anker’s somewhat younger brother in the arena of power banks and by no means is this an insult to Aukey, however, it is to say that Aukey is right behind Anker in the way of what their portable chargers are able to deliver. Since their power banks hold many of the same traits that Anker holds onto.

                                  AiPower

                                  Aukey has its own version of PowerIQ, that’s called AiPower and it’s basically able to do the same thing.

                                  Each one of the Aukey’s power banks takes advantage of AiPower and that means they’re able to Output as much charging speed that the charging port is capable of. This ensures that charging is as fast as possible even for charging ports that aren’t capable of very fast charging speeds.

                                  They have a very wide range of power capacities

                                  Of course, if you want to survive in the portable charger arena you’re going to have to offer power banks that offer a variety of power capacities. In Aukey’s sense, they offer very high capacity portables chargers that have power capacities that can last for days and weeks. They have a 30,000mAh power bank that not only have a high power capacity, but they also offer Quick Charge and Type-C capabilities. So I guess what we’re saying is that Aukey offers power banks that come in full and complete packages.

                                  Sure, a high power capacity is great but it’s what comes with high power capacities is also what matters. In this instance, Aukey offers innovation by making their higher capacity power banks very useful to use.

                                  A Very Minimal and Easy to use Design

                                  When something is easy to use, then it can instantly be considered a good product. This should ring true for power banks since they’re basically portable wall chargers.

                                  One of the most notable things about Aukey’s power banks is that the functional components of the power bank are all on a single side, with an exception of the power button. This makes it so there’s no other place to look for a place to use the power bank and makes their high capacity power banks very easy to use even when you’re connecting 3 devices to 1 charging device.

                                  Along with the minimal design is that the build quality is basically of the same standard as Anker power banks. Even though nearly every one of Aukey’s portables chargers uses plastic, the build quality is really great and the small power banks can sure take a beating.

                                  #3 EasyAcc

                                  easyacc

                                  EasyAcc is a charging electronic company that we feel needs more notoriety. They’re currently quite known but they’re simply not known enough because their charging electronics from their car, wall and power bank chargers are one of the best and on the level that Anker and Aukey are able to deliver.

                                  The variety and focus on other Differentiation with how power banks are used

                                  Since portable chargers are well, portable, EasyAcc has realized that there are ways to act on differentiating power banks so they’re able to fit the specific needs of the user.

                                  This is very apparent for some power banks that use built-in charging cables. We know that we’ve had our doubts of built-in charging cables but for a power bank to have a cable that’s built into it makes a lot of sense. Since the source of power is already so portable, then why not make the charging cable native to the source of power. It’s a great design choice and by doing so, EasyAcc has made power banks that can solely use by those that use Micro-USB or Lightning charging cables without the need for their own charging cables. As a result, it makes what is already a free experience even better.

                                  At another turn, EasyAcc also knows that portable power is meant to be taken to where there is no power. Not only does this mean taking your power bank to the park, gym or office; it also means that power banks should be able to be taken into the outdoors. Places, where the rough terrain is no threat to something that is vital as power. Which is why EasyAcc develops power banks that are waterproof and tough enough to survive falls.

                                  It’s this kind of power banks that are able to specialize that add value than just normal power banks.

                                  Providing a high power capacity with plenty of charging ports and just a bit more

                                  EasyAcc is one of the few companies that offers power banks that have 4 charging ports, and along with the 4 charging ports comes high power capacity and Output to match the amount of charging ports. Most of the time when a power bank has lots of charging ports, the Max Output simply isn’t able to live up to what it’s supposed to offer.

                                  In EasyAcc’s rare case, they’ve proven that a 4-Port power bank can be built and it can be built very well with a Max Output of 4.8A. Each of the ports on their 4-Port power banks is able to deliver a max standard charging speed of 2.4 Amps until the Max Output is reached. If that isn’t impressive enough, they even have a have 4-port power bank that uses Quick Charge 3.0. It’s basically like taking a 4-Port wall charger with you while you’re on the go.

                                  Best 1 Port Wall Chargers

                                  Single Port Wall Chargers

                                  Wall chargers are the most used type of charger because of their simplicity and the implication of how they’re used makes them nearly the best option for charging. Wall chargers can have many USB ports because of their base purpose being charging. Charger Harbor has chosen the best 1 port USB wall Chargers that have the best technology and design for charging a single device as fast as possible.

                                  It’s important to know, that many single port wall chargers have Quick Charge technology so they’re able to charge a vast amount of devices at the fastest possible speed. For a charger to be a simple standard charger, the output would be 1.0 Amps. That’s some really slow charging and aren’t on this list.

                                  #1: Aukey PA-U28 Quick Charge 2.0 Wall Charger

                                   

                                  Pic 1

                                  The Aukey single port wall charger features Quick Charge 2.0. The output of the charger when it’s connected to a Quick Charge compatible smartphone is 3.0A speed of charging. The standard rate of charging for non-Quick Charge device is 2.4A. The size of the Aukey wall charger is small and wide in a long way. The size of the wall charger, although quite big for its size is not very much avoidable because of the Quick Charge technology that’s been placed into the charger.

                                  The wide long shape can actually make it better and easier to plug it into an outlet because it will take up less space.

                                  The design of the wall charger allows space for any other electronics to be plugged into the outlet, unlike other wall chargers that will usually take the vertical path design and cover the other outlet. This kind of space saving design is especially helpful if you’re using a Surge Protector and don’t want to waste any outlets.

                                  Real Image 2 EN

                                  The Aukey wall charger, just like many other wall chargers features safety technology that makes it a very reliable charger that won’t stop working.

                                  Pic 1

                                  Anker’s 1 port wall charger has Quick Charge 3.0, making it a charger that can charge any smartphone at a max charging speed. The power of the wall charger is great and something to be impressed about, but it’s not the only thing to be impressed about. The wall charger’s shape is vertical and one would think that it causes problems when you plug it into an outlet because it might cover the outlet next to it.

                                  The wall charger is actually designed to not take up the space of other outlets! This type of design is very helpful when it comes to wall outlets but it’s even a better scenario if you’re using a Surge Protector because this way all the outlets on the Surge Protector can be used.

                                  Portability of the wall charger is outstanding because of its general shape with curved corners and the retractable plug pins. When you put the plug pins into the charger, the charger becomes a small object that you can easily put into nearly any bag or even your pocket without worrying about it getting damaged.

                                  It’s a wall charger that has the design and aesthetics down for what it was made for. As for the charging port side of things. You’ll find the LED light that turns on when charging is happening atop of USB charging port and a Quick Charge logo to remind you that you’re getting the fastest charging possible, regardless of what device you’ve got.

                                  Objectivity is a strong aspect of having and in this case, it rings very true for this wall charger. The Tronsmart one port wall charger is a wall charger the is meant for one purpose and one purpose only…to charge. Well, that goes for all chargers but in this case, the Tronsmart charger has Quick Charge 3.0 technology which makes the charging power great .

                                  On the design side, the wall charger is is nearly a cube shape with curved corners. It’s a small and functional design because it won’t be blocking other outlets when it’s connected to a wall outlet or a Surge Protector due to its horizontal shape. The plug of the wall charger is not retractable but that’s okay because it’s actually quite durable.

                                  There aren’t any lights to indicate charging, neither does it have an insanely small size but it does provide a charging experience that you know you can rely on because the wall charger is built to last. Along with the wall charger comes a USB Type-C charging cable for devices that use a Type-C input for charging.

                                  This is a wall charger that was made with purely fast charging objectivity in mind.

                                  Pic 1

                                  Tenergy wall charger is purely optimized for being used as a one port wall charger because of its overarching design and simplicity. The most surprising thing about this wall charger is just how small it is. The wall charger doesn’t have a retractable plug but even so, it doesn’t need to have retractable plug because of its extremely small size. There aren’t any sharp edges, the charger is a square cube. The wall charger uses a Quick Charge 2.0 and yet it’s so small. We found this to be quite a surprise because usually chargers that use Quick Charge technology are bigger.

                                  The charging output is within a small depression that makes it easier to place the USB charging cable within the charging port. There’s a LED charging light that signals when Quick Charge and Standard charging is taking place. When Quick Charge charging is happening, the light turns green. When standard charging is taking place, then the light becomes blue.

                                  It’s a great wall charger that provides fast charging and amazing portability no matter what purpose of charging you’re using it for.

                                  Lastly, there’s the iClever wall charger that brings the single port wall chargers to a close. This wall charger isn’t any better than the other single port wall chargers that we mentioned. Rather, it’s a wall charger that brings all the good and usual aspects of a wall charger together. The wall charger has curved corner, and absolutely no sharp edges. The plug of the charger is retractable and when folded, it makes the entire wall charger a completely even cube that’s you take with you for traveling.

                                  The iClever wall charger uses Quick Charge 3.0 and the port of the wall charger is actually colored green to show that it features the fast charging technology. There’s a blue LED light that turns on when the wall charger is plugged into an outlet. It delivers a fast charge to any device that you want to charge, while still providing a super portable small size just as a one port wall charger should.

                                  Conclusion

                                  One port wall chargers should be considered to have reached their full potential in terms of current technology. The one port wall chargers that Charger Harbor has chosen are the best wall chargers because they have taken current charging technology and design to its limit. Perhaps in the future, when there’s new charging technology available that’s even better than the current Quick Charge and when there can be smaller designs, then the one port wall charger of today will evolve to be even more efficient.

                                  But for now, single port wall chargers are at a point of optimum design and technology that you can’t go wrong with the choices above.

                                  The Best Dedicated Car Chargers for iPhones

                                  Car Charger Lightning Cables-min

                                  Car chargers can be used for an array of devices. Many car chargers simply have empty USB ports that need charging cables plugged into the ports to actually use the charger. Other car car chargers may actually have already built in cables that are dedicated to certain devices like Android or iPhone. These kind of dedicated car chargers are good to have if you don’t have a cable to connect to the car charger or you simply don’t want to connect a separate cable to the car charger.

                                  Charger Harbor has a chosen the best dedicated iPhone chargers already have a built in Lightning cable, so you don’t have to worry about using a external cable.

                                  #1: Anker PowerDrive Lightning

                                  Pic 1

                                  The PowerDrive Lightning cable is a single cable car charger for iPhones/iPads/iPods, that features a Lightning cable. Charging speed is at a 2.4A, which is the peak of standard charging. The Lightning cable is MFi certified cable, meaning that’s it’s a official Apple charging cable that’s been approved by Apple’s standards. The structure of the car charger is very simple and small. The car charging port is quite small and will only stick about half an inch out of the sock. The Lightning cable simply comes out the small end of the car charger and is 3 feet long.

                                  A small problem with the PowerDrive Lightning is the small end where the lightning cable comes out from. The small end is not the strongest structural point, so it’s best not to pull on the Lightning cable.

                                  #2: Tylt RIBBN Lighting Car Charger

                                  The Tylt Lightning cable charger not only comes with a dedicated Lightning cable, the charger also has one USB output port so you can recharge another device using any other cable. Tylt’s car charge and nearly all their other products have a unique design with a straight edged theme and flat cable designs. The car charging port is a somewhat long but there’s no extra space being used. The end with the Lightning cable and USB port is very objective with just the Lightning cable and USB port output taking up that space.

                                  The Lightning cable is 3 feet and charges at 2.4A charging speed. Th USB Output Port also charges at 2.4A, which means that you can connect a Micro USB or another Lightning cable to the USB port and charge your other devices at max speed. The Tylt car charger is a solidly build charger because the entire car charge is one piece; The part where the Lightning and USB port are, isn’t a separate piece.

                                  The Aukey Lightning Car charger comes with a Lightning cable that’s 3 feet long. The car charger itself is very small, the charger will barely stick out of the electrical socket, which makes it a very lower profile car charger. The charging output of the Lightning cable is 2.4A. There’s a USB charging output that also charges at 2.4A for whatever charging cable you use for it.

                                  The structure of the charger is done very well and is quite objective. A straightforward design that includes a Lightning cable and a charging output for your other charging purposes.

                                  #4: Mosche Retractable Lightning Car Charger

                                  Pic 1

                                  The Mosche car charger features a retractable Lightning cable that is 2.5 Feet long. This is a very helpful feature for a car charger because it lessens clutter and makes the car a bit more low profile. To pull the Lightning cable out, you simply pull on the head of the cable and just pull until you reach the length you need. The Lightning cable can be retracted by simply pressed a button on the car charger and the cable will be retracted. The car charger also comes with a USB Output Port to charge your other devices with another charging cable. The Lightning cable charges at 2.1A and the USB Output Port charges at 3.5A. Although the USB charging output will charge your devices at 2.4A because anything above 2.4A will most likely damage your devices.

                                  A flaw for this cable is the back end size of the car charger, since it’s a cube shape. The large cube shape is there because of the retractable cable and although the cube is not exactly low profile, it’s not such a obstructive design and the retractable cable still stays to be the main attraction and innovation for this car charger.

                                  Pic1

                                  Power Bear has created a extraordinary car charger that not only features a Lightning cable but it also has two USB charging outputs. The Lightning cable charges at 2.4A and the two USB charging ports charge at 2.4A each. The car charger’s main strength isn’t just the Lightning cable but it’s the fact that you can connect two more charging cables into the two outputs and charge your devices at full speed from there as well. The car charger itself is small due to its small head piece and a flat box back end for the charging components.

                                  We do advise caution for handling the Lightning cable with care and not being too rough with it, because the structural support on the car charger end is not very durable and can be worn out if it’s treated roughly.

                                  The Anker PowerPort 2 takes traveling charging to its limits with its small design and powerful charging technology. It may not be the ultimate wall charger ever, but it may very well be the best wall charger for traveling.

                                  This is because the wall charger is very small and durable with its curved edges that are able to distribute any shock damage inflicted onto the wall charger. The wall charger also has a retractable plug that is able to completely go into the wall charger itself so it stays safe from damage.

                                  On the technology side, the PowerPort 2 wall charger has two ports that feature Anker’s PoweriQ charging. Since the two ports have PoweriQ charging, both ports can charge at 2.4A speed at the same time. The charger also has a LED light above the two USB charging ports that indicates when charging is taking place. When the light is green, charging is taking place. When the light is blue, there is no charging happening.

                                  Bringing it back to Anker, the PowerPort 4 is a 4 port wall charger that holds the same design that you should expect from the wall chargers that we mentioned earlier. Curved corners make the wall charge smaller and less susceptible to damage. In addition, the PowerPort 4 has a retractable plug to avoid any damage.

                                  The 4 ports all feature PoweriQ charging, although the charging for each port has a limit of 2.0A charging speed. The charging limit most has to do with the 4 ports on the wall charger. Going any higher with the Amps could result in a safety hazard.

Couple the power with the portability and you’ve got yourself a charger that can more than provide for your traveling needs.

                                  The RAVPower two port USB charger is one of the most reliable and powerful car chargers within its class. With a small size that’s the shape of a bullet, the low profile is what makes this car charger a notable choice. With the two main pieces of the car charger being small:

                                  • The head part that goes into the electrical socket is short and about the length of the socket itself so the charger doesn’t stick out too much.
                                  • The round USB charging port end is short, with just the two USB output ports being the main functions.

                                  Power wise, the charger is powerful. The two ports feature RAVPower’s iSmart charging technology. The two USB ports charge at 2.4A charging speed, this speed is the fastest when it comes to standard charging. For its size, the power you’re able to get is quite something.

                                  The body of the car charger is done very well. The charger’s head piece is short and compliments the charging end because the charging port piece of the charger is where the design is done most well.

                                  The charge piece is a long rectangular piece that has all 4 of the USB charging ports aligned one after another. It’s a clean and straightforward design that makes the charger easy to use and quite aesthetic and low profile within your car.

                                  If you’re looking for a car charger that has the same amount of ports but want Quick Charge, then we recommend Aukey’s CC-T4 Quad Port Car Charger with Quick Charge 2.0. It’s a 4 port car charger just like Anker’s but it has one port that is dedicated to Quick Charge 2.0.

It’s a small charger that is similarly designed to the RAVPower car charger that we mentioned earlier. The head of the car charger is short. The functional part of the charger is round and objective with the only parts that are functional are the two Quick Charge 2.0 charging ports.

                                  It’s a all around great charger that delivers the insanely fast charging speeds of 3.0A as you would expect from Quick Charge technology, and in this case, you can charge two devices at Quick Charge speeds at the same time. If you don’t have Quick Charge compatible devices, that’s okay, because the charger will just default to 2.4A speeds of charging for non-compatible devices.

                                  The power bank has two recharging inputs:

                                  • One input is the standard Micro USB that is prevelant for nearly all power banks.
                                  • The other output is for a Lightning cable which means that users with iPhones can now rejoice as they no longer need a Micro USB to fully take advantage of this power bank.

The shape and size of the power is small and rectangular so it’s easy enough to carry in one hand.

                                  If you need a portable charger that is going to charge your devices until the end of the road trip, to your destination and back home, then Anker’s PowerCore+ 26800 power bank is the ultimate power bank when it comes to a road trip.

                                  A massive capacity of 26,800 you’ll be able to charge a smartphone about 6 times or even more. The power bank has three USB charging outputs. Two ports feature PoweriQ which is able to charge devices at 2.4A charging speed. The third charging output port features Quick Charge 2.0. The input recharge is a Micro USB port. At the top of the power bank is the power button and LED lights to indicate power capacity.

                                  Along withe PowerCore+ 26800 comes a PowerPort +1 which is a one port wall charger that features Quick Charge 3.0. It’s a great wall charger for the power bank because it rapidly charges the power, so recharging time is cut down to about 8 hours.

                                  The design and size of the power bank is slim with curves. It’s thin enough that you can hold it in your hand and small enough that you can carry it around. If there are people in the back of the road trip car, then they’d really benefit from this charger because of the three ports and high capacity.
