Best Anker power banks 2023
Big or small, Anker has it all.
Now that more electronic devices are becoming portable and rechargeable via USB, keeping one or two reliable portable chargers around is essential. Anker is a brand that continues to provide a wide range of power banks and charging accessories that can handle nearly all of your on-the-go charging needs. Because there are so many options, we rounded up some of the best Anker power banks to help you find the best options for you.
It isn’t the newest option, doesn’t have the most capacity, or offer the highest output wattage, but the Anker PowerCore III is one of the best power banks on sale. It has Anker’s excellent charging tech, USB-A and USB-C ports, wireless charging, and a built-in stand. In terms of speeds, you get 18W PD wired and 10W wireless.
Small package, big power
When you are heading out and want some backup power for your phone, the Anker 511 is perfect. Its 5,000mAH battery, capable of 20W output from the USB-C port, is great for keeping your phone topped up while on the go. Plus, because it’s so small, it easily fits in a pocket or bag and doubles as a wall charger thanks to the built-in plug.
Big time power
When you need significant power output and lots of battery, the Anker 737 GaNPrime is a great option, thanks to the 140W max output from the dual USB-C ports and 18W from the USB-A port. You'll get a 24,000mAH battery pack that has a display to show you incoming and outgoing power, and the percentage left.
Slim yet beefy
At times you need more capacity than the 5,000mAH of the Anker 511, but space is still at a premium. The PowerCore Slim 10K PD is the way to go. You'll keep the 20W output but double the capacity — all in a slim power bank.
Like the Anker 511, the 733 can be your wall plug and a 10,000mAH battery bank. Using Anker's GaNPrime technology, you can get 65W of power from this compact device. It means you'll be able to leave the house with just one charging buddy.
The Anker 525 Power Bank is the way to go when you want to save some money but still want good power output and plenty of capacity. The 525 brings 20W of PD power from the USB-A and USB-C ports and a 20,000mAH cell.
