Best Portable Power Banks/Chargers
Portable power banks are small, sometimes pocket-size devices suitable for recharging smartphones, iPhones, tablets, and similar devices.
Portable power banks store energy at onboard lithium batteries and recharge devices via various USB ports or by implementing wireless charging.
Power banks themselves may be recharged using wall chargers, via USB ports, using the built-in solar panels, etc. In many ways, portable power banks/chargers resemble portable power stations, except that power banks/chargers are smaller and lighter.
Various means of charging combined with different charging ports for charging other devices, make power banks very flexible and versatile devices, very popular not only among travelers, campers, hikers, etc. but also among all the people that want to have energy reserve for emergencies and other off-the-grid situations.
In order to increase their versatility even further, many power banks also feature additional LED flashlights which can come in very handy when, for example, camping.
Thanks to the standardization, many devices featuring high-capacity lithium batteries also feature USB charging ports suitable for charging smartphones, iPhones, tablets, and other similar devices.
For example, many car jump starters also feature USB charging ports combined with LED flashlights. Similarly, some power tools' batteries also feature USB charging ports, etc.
However, small, compact, lightweight power banks are a class of their own. And as the number of energy-hungry devices is increasing, so does the importance of having a good power bank, ready to be used at the moment's notice.
When looking for a new power bank, pay attention to the unit's physical dimensions and weight, battery capacity, available charging ports, if the unit features wireless charging, compatible devices, and of course, the price.
But, considering all pros and cons, most of the power banks are rather cheap units that come at really acceptable prices.
