I'm in the market for a power bank charger. What are the thoughts on best power bank chargers? I was looking at Mophie cause They had Qi but may not be convenient when traveling in pocket.

I'm looking for a power bank that can charge with usb c and output fast charge for iPhones.
I was looking at Anker however the output seems to say 5w. When I believe the iPhones can.now charge much faster than that.

That’s the power bank I have and it works extremely well. It charges my iPhone X almost as quickly as my 7.5w Anker PowerWave wireless stand.. I also use it to charge my Air2 and have been very happy with the quality and performance

thank you!

I just ordered it. I like that it has USB-C which will help with future compatibility, since the industry is moving toward that.

How long does it take to charge the actual power bank?

If it’s completely depleted... Awhile. You have to consider that power bank will charge your iPhone a crap load of times... I’ve never timed it but if I were to speculate, 4 hours..

It doesn't have output from the USB c. But does the other one allow to charge 3 devices? two USB and one USB c at same time.

NVM the other one you have does three at same time. More value.

Looks like it's around 6 hours to charge. Aren't their power banks that quick charge? What's the difference ?
