This guide will highlight some of the best quick charging portable battery chargers. With huge Quad-HD screens and powerful processors our smartphones and tablets run out of battery fast. A growing trend with users are portable chargers. Being able to charge your device whenever, wherever, while on the go. Here we’ve round up some of the best portable chargers available right now.
We’ve already detailed a lot of different portable battery chargers in the past, and more recently reviewed some with massive 20,000 mAh battery packs inside. As a comparison, the Galaxy S7 has a 3,000 mAh battery inside. Meaning a 20,000 mAh charger can top it off six times. Nearly the entire week.
The latest trend in smartphones is a feature called “Quick Charge 2.0 & 3.0” or for Samsung it’s adaptive fast charging. This new technology requires a special charger or wall outlet, and allows phones to recharge from 0-50% in less than 30 minutes, or more. It’s crazy fast. So lets take advantage of it. Below are the best portable battery chargers that use this faster technology.
Portable battery packs you can charge and take with you. On hand to charge any device you carry. Most have multiple USB ports for charging smartphones, tablets, watches, vapors and more with USB or lightning cables. They’re a dime a dozen over at Amazon, but many of them are of low quality or won’t charge at the rate promised. Not to mention most don’t feature “Quick Charging” technology that is in most smartphones from 2016 and coming in 2017.
Anker, TYLT, and Aukey are among some of our favorite brands, but there are countless excellent options available today that have integrated Quick Charging, and now we’re even seeing Quick Charge 3.0 (0-80% in 35 minutes) and USB Type-C chargers. Here is a list of some of our favorite new chargers, and the slideshow below has additional details and links to buy.

Most devices over the past two years have this. Allowing the Galaxy S7 Edge to fully recharge from 0-100% in under 90 minutes, and to 50% in just 25 minutes. Older phones from the past took well over 2-3 hours. It’s a huge advancement in battery charging and is getting better each year.
So while many of the Samsung, Motorola, TYLT, or other name-brand portable battery chargers from the past are good, new ones are better. Essentially giving users the same insanely fast charging times they get at home, but while on the go. These are some of the best choices available right now. Anker recently released some new Powercore 2 chargers we’d highly recommend. Our slideshow below are the best choices for 2017.
Aukey Quick Charge 10,000 mAh Portable Charger
One of my favorites as of late is the Aukey Quick Charge 2.0 certified portable battery charger with 10,000 mAh of battery. This is enough to charge the Galaxy S6 or iPhone 6s nearly four times, or three for the Galaxy Note 5.
The difference between this portable battery charger and all the others, is it's a Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 certified device. Meaning it will charge smartphones or tablets faster than any other portable charger you own. It has a decently sized 10,000 mAh battery inside, two USB ports, but only one does Quick Charging. The orange port is the faster charger, but the second is still the second fastest 2.4 amp output USB port, which will be faster than a regular cigarette lighter charger found on most shelves.
There's a power button on the right side which lights up the "Aukey" branding on the front, showing it has power, and the name will glow white when fully charged, an change colors as the battery drops.
There's two USB ports, and an LED for a flashlight in the middle. Press and hold the power button to turn on or off the flashlight. It's also extremely lightweight for a 10k charger, making it one of my favorites to take while I'm out and about. It has enough to charge two devices, the flashlight is convenient, and the lightweight factor makes it better than some of the others with a similar size battery.
Most importantly though, it's cheap, but isn't a piece of junk. It gets the job done, and does it quick. They also have a 15k charger that's the perfect middle ground, and only $30. It's what I use daily.
