The highlight of every power bank
TudoCelular was getting ready Multiple guides To help you choose your next phone to buy, as well as other interesting electronics to purchase. Of course, we won’t forget the Power Banks, also known as external batteries or portable chargers.
Not all cell phones provide independence for a full day of use and the search for this type of product has increased in recent months. So we decided to help you choose the best power bank to buy.
In our list we have simpler models with a small capacity for those who just want to give extra charges or for emergencies, as well as more powerful models that allow more than one device to be recharged at once.
The products are listed in price order, so it’s easy to choose within your budget. It’s good to remember that the values vary a lot and are not always in the ascending order that we arranged in the beginning.
Pineng PN-952 (5000mAh)
We started our list with a weaker, cheaper model, Pineng’s PN-952. It is a well-known Chinese brand in the world of power banks, for providing high quality products at reasonable prices. This model we listed has a 5000mAh capacity, but it can also be found in the 10,000mAh version.
The nice thing about the PN-952 is that it comes with a cable on the body itself, but there is also a common cable on the package. There is also a microUSB adapter for Lightning, allowing you to recharge your iPhone or iPad. Its capacity is only sufficient for a full charge and at most depends on one and a half recharges on a cell phone.
Pineng PN-886 (10000mAh)
Here we have another Pineng model, this time PN-886 with a capacity of 10,000mAh. This is not even a difference, which relates to the ability to charge a cell phone battery without the need for a cable, using wireless charging technology. Of course, it is imperative that you have a compatible smartphone.
A nice difference is the digital display that informs the battery capacity of the power bank. It also supports turbocharging using the cable supplied with the accessory. If you want convenience just by touching your phone to the power bank to recharge, then the PN-886 is the most suitable one on our list.
Multilaser CB144 (20,000 mAh)
Multilaser has an extensive product catalog, ranging from cell phones to various types of accessories. Of course, the brand will not be excluded from the external battery segment and here we have the CB144 model, which not only boasts 20,000 mAh of power capacity, but to charge it at a lower price than the competition.
It is not a powerful model or with different technologies like the others we mentioned. If you are looking for a high capacity battery at a low price, then you already know which model to choose. It has LED indicators that help in knowing the charging status.
Geonav PB20K (20.000 mAh)
If you need a lot of ports to recharge more devices at the same time, then you might be interested in Geonav’s 20,000 mAh version. It has four USB ports, two of which are Type A, one Micro, and one Type C. The latter is capable of connecting up to 60W, allowing you to charge up to laptops.
This Geonav model also has a graphical indicator of actual battery charge to make it easy to track how much power you have left to recharge your devices. Quick Charge 3.0 is also supported to ensure a timely charging, as long as the phone is Qualcomm compatible.
Xiaomi Mi 2S Power Bank (10.000 mAh)
Xiaomi is also a reference when it comes to the portable battery. Mi Power Bank 2S provides 10,000 mAh. Here you have less capacity than the Geonav model at a slightly higher price, but in return you get a power bank with an aluminum body and support for fast charging.
If your phone charges quickly, it will take less time for your battery to be full with Mi Power Bank 2S compared to the others we mentioned earlier. Here, too, it is possible to charge two devices at the same time. The battery for this accessory is Li-Po and comes with a standard microUSB cable for recharging.
Xiaomi Powerbank 20000 mAh
Closing our list is another Xiaomi power bank, the model with 20000 mAh. This is for those who want to spend as much time as possible away from outlets or have multiple devices to recharge. And just like the weakest model we mentioned, fast loading is supported here as well.
Of course, since it offers twice the capacity, this power bank ends up being bigger, more bulky and heavier. If you care a lot about practicality, it might not be a viable option, but in the case of trips where you cannot rely on the available ports, it is always a good idea to have one of these outlets in your bag.
TP-Link TL-PB10000 (10,000 mAh)
TP-Link is another company that also invests in external batteries. A recent model of the brand that can be found on the national market is TL-PB10000, which as the name implies offers a maximum capacity of 10,000 mAh. The company uses Li-Po cells to ensure wear is minimized for every load.
It provides 2.1A output to ensure fast charging, and more than one device can be recharged at the same time. To fully recharge the power bank, you will need to wait a little less than 5 hours – according to tests conducted by the same manufacturer.
Geonav PB15000 (15,000mAh)
Geonav is a Brazilian company that specializes in accessories for computers, tablets and smartphones. It is also betting on portable chargers with its PB15000 power bank, which can be found in several color options. Its design is thinner than a lot of Chinese power banks of the same capacity.
Here you have 15000mAh, which is enough to charge up to 6 charges on your phone or charge multiple devices. The cell used is of Li-Po, which makes this capacity produce more when it comes to powering your devices. Plus, this model has the advantage of offering a one-year warranty, which you don’t have on imported models.
Anker PowerCore (13,000 mAh)
Anker is another big brand that bets on portable chargers and has options with 5000mAh, 10000mAh and also 20100mAh, as is the case with this one we picked. It may sound inferior to the listed Xiaomi, but it is able to offer 4 to 5 recharges in less time.
It has a robust design that attracts the most clumsy. And anyone who cares about battery quality, it is good to know that this Anker model has been approved by Anatel. Your bad points? Having just one USB port will restrict recharging one device at a time.
