These power banks are actually portable batteries that allow you to recharge your phone while on the go. All you have to do is to carry one around and your phone will have all the battery juice it needs so that you can keep on playing – some of them can offer 6 to 9 or even more FULL recharges of your phone!

Anker is known as the leading manufacturer of powerbanks and if you want even more battery juice power than the previous one offers and you are ready to pay a bit more for that, this is your choice.

It comes with 18-month warranty and, even though it’s a bit bulkier than the previous model, it does offer more battery juice so you definitely have to consider it.

Although a bit bigger (it’s almost as long as an iPhone 6s Plus, but thicker), it offers a ton of battery juice and can even be used to charge multiple devices at the same time, so that fellow team members don’t run out of battery either. It’s a really good product and the price is really good too, so if for the US/World: click here to check it out. And click here to check it out if you’re from the UK/Europe.

  1. I owned a lot of portable chargers and most after 3 months start to not holding up as much power compared to when I first bought them. Maybe these other brands might be better I will have to give them a try. However, ill suggest the Powergo ss 5000 from tech get go. Its not put on the list here. I have owned this product for about 5 months now and I must say its my new must have portable charger. Its recharges so much more faster then the previous power banks I owned. It recharges itself so quick that I can feel its like 15 times faster charge speeds then any other portable chargers I have owned including my new Qualcomm Q.C. 3.0 portable charger I also bought from amazon to give it a try. the power bank pretty much finished charging itself in like under 15 minutes. When I use it to recharge my iPhone it recharges not as fast but I can tell it charges much faster then my wall charger. I would have to recommend the powergo ss 5000 to anyone who wants a really quick charging power bank. surprisingly

    • Thanks for sharing! The only problem with this powerbank (I must admit I did not test it to see if there are others) is that it only holds 5000mAH. In other words, it’s very small compared to the products we shared. We didn’t even look at chargers with such a small capacity but I am happy to hear that you found one you are satisfied with, even though it’s not really great for long travel or multiple recharges as it probably only has enough juice for recharging and iPhone 1.5 or 2 times.
