How to Choose the Best Power Bank With USB-C Output

When it comes to power banks, many are making the switch to USB-C. Most offer at least one or two USB-C ports and some even support up to 130W of power output. These portable batteries are ideal for charging smartphones, tablets and laptops while you’re on the go. They come in various capacities and sizes so you can choose the right one to suit your needs.

If you’re looking for a versatile power bank with wireless wizardry, this Anker model offers an excellent option for the money. Suitable for most Samsung phones from 2015 and all iPhones since the iPhone 8 it supports Qi fast charging, meaning you can charge your smartphone with just a single touch on its back. It also features a USB-C port that can recharge the battery to full power in just under an hour.

For a bit more versatility, we’ve also included this option from INIU. With a decent 10,000mAh capacity and dual USB-C PD ports this is a great choice for those who need to recharge their iPhones, Apple tablets and some Android phones. It also includes a LED that lets you know how much power is left so you can be sure you have enough for the day ahead of you.

Another alternative is this magnetic power bank from Mophie. It’s designed to stick on the back of MagSafe-enabled iPhone and iPad cases but can be used with any MagSafe or non-MagSafe device too. It features a svelte design for a 20000mAh power bank and while it doesn’t support Qualcomm’s QuickCharge technology, we’ve found it still charges reasonably quickly thanks to PowerIQ and VoltageBoost.
