Top 10 Power Banks to Buy in 2018 – Comprehensive Review of The Best Power Banks.

Must Read Before buying one!

Top 10 Power Banks: Power Banks have become a necessary thing whenever we are travelling. The capacity of the power banks are having an increasing trend. A few years back, we were looking to buy power banks with just 2000 or 5000 mAH battery capacity. And Now, we are looking at Power Banks with atleast 10000mAh to even 50,000 mAh battery capacity. The  most power banks that we can see now are in the 10,000 and 20,000 mAh battery range. If you ask me, I would be more than OK with a 20000 mAh Power bank.

The battery capacity is directly proportional to the size and weight of the product. So if you want to have huge capacity, you should be ok with carrying it around despite being bulky and heavy. Power banks are becoming lighter and lighter, but i don’t think it would become any lighter considering the fact that we are still using Li-Ion batteries. There is no break through in battery technology that is practical at the moment.

There are certain things to consider when buying a Power Bank. We will see some of them.

Capacity

There are power banks ranging from different battery capacity. Like there are smaller ones with 5000 mAh batteries. Then there are 10000 to 15000 mAh battery ones. Then 20000 mAh versions which is hot right now. We even have larger ones like 50,000 mAh battery power banks. When choosing a Power Bank for you, always try to buy a higher capacity power bank so that you can charge your device more times. It can be helpful when we are travelling a lot and do not get enough time to actually plugin our phones. A 10000 mAh Power Bank would be sufficient to charge a normal Phone  upto 3 times.

Port Selection

Port Available on the Power Banks are another thing to consider. Almost all the Power banks except for a few are having USB C-Type charging ports. The newer phones in the market are coming with the latest USB C type port. So if you have a Phone with a USB C type port and buy a Power Bank with a Micro USB charging port, you will have to carry a Micro USB cable to charging your power bank. It is not a big deal if you are sure to carry a Micro USB cable along with your power bank the whole time. Also you will have to remove the cable provided with your Phone charger and use it with the power bank. Once you  are done with the power bank and want to charge from the wall adapter, you’ll have to remove and plug it into the charger. That’s a lot of work.

Quick Charging?

Batter

Quick Charging is a great thing to have. Qualcomm, the manufacturer of the processors on Smartphones (SnapDragon) brought a new invention to the table called Quick Charging. This enabled devices to be charged very fast compared to normal charging. We could get a full days power in just 15 minuted. Quick Charging technology used more voltage at lower current ratings to do its magic. Most Quick Chargers will be working at  9V/2A or 12V/1.5A ratings. Not all devices comes with Quick Charging support. But if your device supports Quick Charging, definitely consider buying a Power Bank with Quick charging feature. It will be worth the extra money you pay.

Portability

Portability

Power banks are meant for on the move charging. This means we should be able to carry it around without any issues. The larger the power bank capacity is , the heavier and bulkier it is. So always make sure you buy a slim and light weight Power Bank so that you can carry it around easily.

Price

Price is the most important factor one would  consider when buying a Power bank. There are lots of options available and so the pricing is very competitive. We are able to get really good power banks at a very affordable price range. Also check out if there are any offers running on e-commerce websites so that you can save a few more bucks.Don’t buy any power bank that says it is 10000 mAh and is avaialble to under 500 INR. Most probably those would be fake ones and would have an actual capacity of 2000 mAh. When choosing a Good Power bank, spare some money so that you can get something which will last longer.

Top Power Bank in India

Power Banks prices are very aggressive now a days. They are not so expensive. We could get a good Power Bank with sufficient Battery Capacity under 1000 INR. The price came down since there are lots of options from various brands  like Xiaomi, Intex, Ambrane, Syska etc to name some.

Beware of Fake Power Banks
Fake Power banks are all over the place.The batteries inside are filled with sand.

There are tons of fake Power Banks available in the market. They will be boasting huge battery capacity at very cheap rate. Think twice before buying because batteries are not cheap. There are many incidents were people buy Power Banks only to find out the batteries inside i filled with sand. Make sure you read the reviews of those who have purchased it. Always go for reputed brands.

Top 10 Power Bank 20000mAh

With 20000 mAH capacity you can charge your phones at least 4  or more times(3000mAh Device). There are lots of options to choose from in the 20000 mAh battery capacity. If you are ready to compromise on portability, you can always go for higher capacity power banks so we can charge our  devices more times before actually charging the power bank itself. Fast Charging is coming to more and more devices. So it is always a good idea to buy a Power bank with Fast Charging support. And many of the newer devices are having USB-C type, so if you are having a device with USB-C Type port and a normal power bank, you’ll have to carry an additional micro USB cable to charge your Power Bank.
