The iPhone is now a decade old, but alas, with every new iteration, there’s only a slight betterment to its battery life. As much as we’d like to see larger batteries inside these devices, we’re forced to make do with the ones that are already there. But the simplest way to get around this problem i, of course,e carrying your very own power bank with you all the time. This can help you juice up your iPhone in crunch situations. If you own an iPhone, these are the best power banks you can buy for it right now.
This one’s for those who don’t like having to charge their power banks on a daily basis. With up to a whopping 30000mAh capacity at your disposal, you can recharge an iPhone 7 ten times over using this product. It can charge Apple devices at up to 2.4A, which will ensure that they get charged quickly. And you can recharge this power bank using a Lightning cable as well. If it matters to you, there’s even a built-in flashlight on this device, apart from a unique battery level indicator which is white when full, green when half empty and red when low on battery.
Anker’s PowerCore+ comes with three full-size USB output ports and one Type-C port. The fact that the latter exists means that you can also charge your new-gen MacBooks using this power bank. Despite having a big 26800mAh cell inside it, this product can be recharged twice as fast using a high-power wall charger. Moreover, all three of its output ports are able to dole out a good 5V/3.0A charging speed, but since the overall output limit is 6A, the speed will go down if more than one device is connected at once.
Xiaomi has consistently been delivering great power bank offerings in India over the last few years. Its latest is the Mi Power Bank2i which features a 20000mAh cell and dual USB output ports. When charging two devices, it delivers an output of 5.1V/3.6A to both the ports, which is very impressive. At 358gms, this power bank is very lightweight as well. Xioami has blessed the product with high-quality circuit boards which enhance the safety and efficiency of the product.
This power bank from iWalk comes fitted with its own Lightning cable which is tucked away on one of its side surfaces. On the opposite end is a micro USB cable which can be used to charge other devices. Capable of charging up to three devices at a time, this product from iWalk even ships with a backlit LCD display which shows you the charging status and the battery level at any given time. Equipped with a 10000mAh cell, this device is just 13mm thin, making it a highly portable option. It is moreover able to fast charge Apple devices as well.
This 5000mAh power bank comes with a Lightning connector of its own, but is grossly overpriced. It gives out a power output of 2.4A, allowing your iPhone to be charged fast. On its other end is a full-size USB cable which you can use to charge the power bank itself. The length of these cables is a big issue, since they are incredibly small. Where this product does score a lot of points is in the looks department, with its premium feel that is granted to it by its aluminium finish.
Not many companies are making power banks that are specially tailored for iPhones. So the choice is pretty narrow for those who wish to purchase one. Before buying though, one must always consider the kind of usage they are expecting off the device. This will help you decide upon what capacity to go for.
Always check the output frequency of a power bank. If it is low (e.g. 5V/1A), then your devices will charge slower than when the output is higher (e.g. 5V/2.1A). Power banks with more than one output port often have one slow port on them.
And it’s common knowledge that the actual battery capacity of a power bank is almost always lower than what is shown. This is due to a phenomenon called conversion rate. To put it simply, some amount of battery is eaten up inside the power bank during the conversion of its voltage.
