The Best Power Banks for Pokemon GO

(Last Updated On: January 18, 2023)

Now that Pokemon GO is all the rage and will be for… long as it’s available for download on the app stores, it’s more important than ever to keep your devices charged and ready to go. Since you’re going out Pokemon catching and using an app on your phone most of the time, there’s a high chance that your phone will lose power very quickly. Luckily, there are power banks and battery cases to ensure you can complete your goal to catch ’em all and become the very best.

We’ve picked out the best portable chargers and battery cases so you can reach your full potential as a Pokemon trainer.

Let’s get started.

The basis of any Pokemon trainer is portability. Yeah, sure, when you venture for Pokemon, you’ll be tempted to pack a bunch of food in your backpack and maybe other electronics, but a true Pokemon trainer knows that traveling light is the best way to travel.

The same goes for power banks.

PowerAdd Pro 10,000mAh Power Delivery Power Bank

If you’re searching for a well-balanced power bank with fast charging and an alright capacity, I recommend this PowerAdd Pro 10,000mAh power bank. So this charger has a 10,000mAh capacity that can get most phones to full power about a single time, and you may get two full charges for some phones with smaller batteries. At this point, most phones have large batteries, so a 10,000mAh power bank is basically on the mini side.

If you’re playing Pokemon GO on a tablet, you may fair at least a nearly full charge. On the charging side, this PowerAdd Pro power bank has a USB-A Quick Charge port that can output 18W and a USB-C PD port that has a 20W output. So you can fast charge most phones, such as Android phones and iPhones, via the USB-C port. The Quick Charge port can be used to fast charge most Android phones.

Recharging is also pretty good, with an 18W input recharging speed via the USB-C and Micro-USB input ports. The size of this PowerAdd power bank is perfect for gaming on your phone because it has a 5-inch length and a thickness of only 0.5 inches; you stack your phone on top of this power bank and slide it into your pocket when needed. At the front is a power capacity display.

RAVPower 20,000mAh 60W PD Power Bank

For a higher capacity and more powerful power bank, there’s this RAVPower portable charger. This is the Pioneer 60W PD power bank with a 20,000mAh capacity, so you’re looking to charge most phones to full power about three times or possibly four times.

Charging power from the two ports is good because the USB-C Power Delivery port has a 60W output and the USB-A port has an 18W Quick Charge speed. So you can use the USB-C port to fast charge most phones and tablets; you can even use the USB-C port to charge laptops that can charge via USB-C. When charging two devices simultaneously, the USB-C port drops down to a 45W output, and the USB-A port drops to a 15W output; this still lets you fast charge a phone from the USB-C port.

When recharging this RAVPower portable charger, I recommend using a 30W USB-C Power Delivery wall charger because it has a 30W max input. You should be able to get it back to full power from 0% to 100% within about 2 hours.

ROMOSS PEA30 30,000mAh 30W PD Power Bank

If you want a power bank that will last a few days, regardless if you’re charging a phone or a tablet, this ROMOSS PEA30 power bank may be a good choice. This ROMOSS power bank has a 30,000mAh capacity, so for charging phones only, you’re looking at about 6 to 8 full charges. A tablet can get a single full charge, and the power bank may have spare capacity. So you won’t have to worry about recharging this power bank after using it for a few days.

Charging power is about on par with the capacity, with his ROMOSS power bank having a 30W USB-C port and two USB-A Quick Charge ports so you can charge three devices simultaneously. One of the most notable parts of this power bank is that you can recharge it through one of its three input ports. You can recharge the power bank at 30W via its USB-C port, which I recommend because it’s the fastest way to recharge it. However, the Micro-USB input has an 18W recharge speed and a Lightning input port that can recharge the power bank at 10W.

INIU B63 25,000mAh 65W PD Power Bank

This is more of a middle-of-the-road power bank from INIU with a 25,000mAh capacity. So enough to keep your phone charged for a couple of days as you play Pokemon Go. Charging power from this INIU power bank is powerful because it has two USB-C Power Delivery ports and a single USB-A Quick Charge port.

USB-C 1 can output 65W, USB-C 2 can output 30W, and the USB-A port can output 18W. Charging power is not lacking from this INIU power bank, and you can fast charge your phone with it. Also, if you’re wondering, you can fast charge iPhones with a USB-C port when you use a USB-C to Lightning cable.

Recharging is maxed out at 45W with this INIU power bank, so I recommend using a 45W or higher Power Delivery wall charger when recharging it. At the front is a digital capacity indicator.

A downside for this power bank is that it is a bit chunky with a 1.6-inch thickness, so fitting it into your pocket may be possible, but it won’t exactly be too comfortable.

MAXOAK 99Wh Portable Power Station Power Bank

Recommending this MAXOAK 99Wh mini power station may seem too much, but if you’re out and about while playing Pokemon Go and want a power source that powers at least a single appliance, this may be a good choice. In terms of mAh, this MAXAOK power station has a 26,756Wh capacity, as much as the other power banks in this guide.

The capacity may not be surprising, but this mini power station has a 100W AC outlet that can power small appliances. Just remember, it’s 100W, so you can’t go powering a heater; think small. Charging ports are powerful, with a 45W USB-C PD port and two USB-A Quick Charge ports. This MAXOAK power station also has a built-in flashlight that may be useful if you’re playing Pokemon Go at night, although you probably shouldn’t be playing it too late in the dark.

A 45W PD wall charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable are included in the box with this power station.

Anker PowerCore 5000

If you want the simplest, no-frill type of power bank that doesn’t even feature fast charging, I recommend the Anker PowerCore 5000 portable charger. This power bank has been selling for many years, and it’s still selling pretty well because it seems like most consumers think this is all they need. This power bank has a 5,000mAh capacity so that you may get at least a single full charge for your phone or close to it.

The power bank has a single USB-A port with a 10W output, so there is no fast charging, which includes the input because this power bank has only a 10W input speed. This charger is tiny, though, with its cylinder design.
