The highlight of each power bank
Best Laptop Reviews has been preparing several guides to help you choose your next cell phone to buy, as well as other interesting electronics to buy. And of course, we wouldn’t forget about power banks, also known as external batteries or portable chargers.
Not all cell phones deliver autonomy for a whole day of use and the search for this type of product has increased in recent months. That’s why we decided to help you choose the best power bank to buy.
Products are listed in order of price, so it’s easier to choose within your budget. It is good to remember that the values vary frequently and are not always in the ascending order that we initially organized.
Pineng PN-952 (5,000 mAh)
We started our list with a weaker and cheaper model, the PN-952 from Pineng. It is a Chinese brand well known in the world of power banks for offering quality products at a more affordable price. This model that we have listed has a capacity of 5,000 mAh, but it can also be found in a version with a capacity of 10,000 mAh.
The nice thing about the PN-952 is that it comes with a cable in its own body, but it also comes with a common cable in the package. There is also a MicroUSB to Lightning adapter, allowing you to recharge your iPhone or iPad. Its capacity is only enough for a full charge and a maximum of one and a half, depending on the cell phone you are recharging.
Pineng PN-886 (10,000 mAh)
Here we have another model from Pineng, this time the PN-886, which has a capacity of 10,000 mAh. This is not even its differential, which is the possibility of charging the cell phone battery without the need for a cable, using wireless charging technology. Of course, for that, you need a compatible smartphone.
A nice difference is in the digital display that informs you of the battery capacity of the power bank. It also supports turbo charging using the cable that comes with the accessory. If you want the convenience of just putting your cell phone on the power bank to recharge, the PN-886 would be the most indicated on our list.
If you need a lot of ports to recharge more devices at the same time, then you might be interested in the 20,000 mAh version from Geonav. It has four USB ports: two type A, one micro, and one type C. The latter is capable of delivering up to 60W, allowing charging of even laptops.
This Geonav model also has a graphic indication of the actual battery charge to make it easy to keep track of how much power is left for you to recharge your devices. There is also support for Quick Charge 3.0 to ensure quick charging, as long as the phone is compatible with Qualcomm technology.
Geonav is a Brazilian company specializing in accessories for computers, tablets, and smartphones. It also bets on portable chargers with its PB15000 power bank, which can be found in several color options. Its design is thinner than many Chinese power banks of the same capacity.
Here you have a 15,000 mAh battery, which is enough to carry up to 6 charges on your cell phone or charge different devices. The cell used is the Li-Po type, which makes this capacity more efficient when it comes to powering your gadgets. In addition, this model has the advantage of offering a 1-year warranty, which you do not have on imported models.
Anker is another big brand that bets on portable chargers and has options with 5,000 mAh, 10,000 mAh, and also 20,100 mAh, as is the case with the ones we selected. It may seem inferior to the Xiaomi listed, but it is capable of offering 4 to 5 recharges in less time.
It has a robust design that will appeal to even the most clumsy. And who cares about quality batteries? It’s good to know that this model from Anker was approved by Anatel. Your bad points? Having only one USB port will limit charging to one device at a time.
