AUKEY's 10,000mAh battery pack has everything and the kitchen sink. It features a USB-C port with Power Delivery 2.0 that will charge your Galaxy S10 the fastest, but you also get two USB-A ports, one with Quick Charge 3.0 and an additional port with AirPower for other devices. It's also super thin and portable, which makes it perfect for sharing your portable power with friends.
Anker is one of the most trusted brands in charging accessories, and its PowerCore+ 26800 is an absolute beast. You'll be able to get multiple charges out of the pack thanks to its 26,800mAh capacity. It also comes with a 30W fast charging USB-C wall charger for topping up the battery pack, multiple charging cables, and a travel pouch.
Anker's PowerCore+ bank may be a bit much for everyday carry. But if you prefer your portable batteries to be actually portable, this model is easily pocketable. Despite the compact look, it's still a PowerCore, allowing you to quickly top off your dying phone with 18W Power Delivery charging — all without having a bulky brute weighing down your backpack or jeans pocket.
If you're experiencing some sticker shock, just wait until you learn how versatile this product is. It offers 60W USB-C Power Delivery charging to recharge a Chromebook and a QC 3.0 port to quickly charge the S10 at the same time. It even includes Qi wireless charging for the times when you forget your charging cable at home.
Samsung's portable battery offering is nice and compact with a handy loop for clipping it onto your bag. While the capacity is smaller than other battery packs on our list, Samsung says it will charge your devices 1.5 times faster than standard USB options. This charger also gets dinged a little for charging over MicroUSB instead of USB-C, but at least it comes with one for charging.
This candy-bar sized power bank supports PD and is the most affordable and compact portable battery pack on our list. The 5,000mAh capacity can recharge the Galaxy S10 at least once, is light enough to carry everywhere, and is available in some fun pastel colors.
This Ventev powerpack doesn't offer USB-C Power Delivery, and at 6000mAh it's the smallest on our list. But what it lacks in charging efficiency it gains back in pure convenience. The design features a built-in USB-C cable, folding AC prongs, and the ability to charge two devices at once using the USB-A port. It recharges in just 4 hours plugged directly into the wall, and can also be used as a wall charger for your S10 in a pinch. It's my go-to portable battery for all my tech that I take with me everywhere.
RAVPower's battery pack offers 26,800mAh and comes with a free USB-C cable. And when the battery pack is depleted, you use the USB-C port to fully charge in just five hours. You'll want to also use the USB-C port for charging your Galaxy S10. But you'll also have two standard USB-A ports for keeping your other devices charged.
Power Delivery power banks are fantastic to have, and while 18W Power Delivery isn't the fastest around, it'll charge the Galaxy S10 at top speed and recharge the power bank when you plug it into the wall quite quickly, enabling you to keep the battery full and fresh during long days and longer nights. This portable bank also comes with a two-year warranty, should your rambunctious life wreak havoc on your power bank.
Keep your options open
There are a few things to consider when choosing a power bank, but the top three need to be reliability, size, and speed. All of the banks we've selected here are from brands that we know, use, and trust. When your S10's battery is low, you can trust that it won't die on you because a power bank decided to kick the bucket.
In regards to size, I feel that the best power bank is the one you have on you, making pocketable power banks easier to carry — and easier on the wallet to buy. Aukey 10,000mAh Portable Charger is a great portable battery that offers Quick Charge 3.0 and Power Delivery 2.0 with enough capacity to recharge the Galaxy S10 from empty to full almost twice.
If you prefer your chargers bigger and beefier, the Anker PowerCore+ is an expensive but handy starter pack if you don't have much in the way of USB-C accessories. Since it comes with a powerful power bank, a C-to-C cable, and a 30W wall charger, it can be a great spare wall charger to keep in your office or backpack in addition to giving you a power bank that will keep an S10 powered for literal days.
