We'd all love for our smartphones to last all day long - and possibly all evening - without needing to recharge it. But if we are actually using our smartphones, that sadly isn't an option. Fortunately, we do have power banks that can charge up our smartphones pretty quickly, including technology such as Quick Charge 2.0 which can charge your phone twice as fast. Below are our top 10 picks for Power Banks for the month of February.
RAVPower 20100mAh Power Bank
This power bank from RAVPower got our attention for a few reasons. The most obvious is the capacity. This sports 20100mAh capacity, and is enough to charge most smartphones around 8 times before needing a recharge itself. The other reason is the fact that it has a USB Type-C port. Allowing you to charge your Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and even your Chromebook Pixel 2 off of this power bank.
Anker PowerCore+ 20100
We've featured Anker's PowerCore+ 20100 before, however this is an updated model and actually includes a USB Type-C port. Allowing you to charge it with your Nexus 6P cable as well as charge your Nexus 6P with that cable and the PowerCore+. Making it super convenient. Along with its size, the PowerCore+ 20100 is definitely a great power bank to pick up.
Aukey Quick Charge 2.0 15,000mAh Power Bank
This portable battery coming from Aukey is a pretty massive one. Coming in at 15,000mAh it is still smaller than the other two listed however. Aukey has included Quick Charge 2.0 here, allowing you to charge your smartphone up to twice as fast as a conventional charger. Always important for when you're trying to charge your phone quickly on the go.
Anker PowerCore+ 10050
This PowerCore+ battery pack is slightly different than the one we already listed, aside from the smaller 10,050mAh capacity, it also does not support USB Type-C. However, it does have Quick Charge 2.0 (hence the plus in the name). Anker also is touting that this is the smallest battery at this capacity. Making it extra portable for those that are always on the go.
Vinsic 20,000mAh Ultra Slim Power Bank
From Vinsic, this power bank boasts a 20,000mAh capacity. It's a pretty unique battery pack to us for one big reason. Instead of using an array of LED lights to indicate the amount of juice left, Vinsic actually has an LED display showing you how much juice is left. So you get a bit more accurate representation of how much is left in the tank.
RAVPower 3350mAh Portable Charger
A bit of a smaller portable charger here compared to the others on this list. This is RAVPower's very portable 3350mAh battery pack. While it doesn't have a ton of capacity, it is small enough to fit in your pocket or purse (for the ladies), making it a great choice for picking up.
PowerAll Portable Battery and Car Jump Starter
This battery pack is actually really cool. One the one hand it can charge up your smartphone, but it can also jump start your car. And who doesn't think that's cool? It does indeed come with jumper cables as well as a flashlight for convenience. Its capacity is 12,000mAh as well and can jump start most V6 engines.
Limefuel Waterproof 15000mAh Power Bank
Being Waterproof, it makes this power bank even more incredible, from Limefuel. It also makes it a bit more expensive, unfortunately. Featuring a 15,000mAh capacity, this battery pack has enough juice to charge your smartphone about 4-5 times, and with it being waterproof you can literally take it anywhere.
Aukey 10,400mAh Quick Charge 2.0 Battery Pack
Another great entry here for Aukey. This is their 10,400mAh Quick Charge 2.0 power bank, which makes it one of the smaller battery packs on this list. But still charging your smartphone pretty quickly thanks to Quick Charge 2.0. Unfortunately, there is only one USB port available on this portable battery pack.
