Battery life is slowly improving in smartphones, but a full day is still hard to get on a single charge. An external power bank is essential for keeping your smartphone up and running without having to go hunting for outlets. In this list, we focus on 10,000mAh power banks, which are great for daily use. With 10,000mAh, you can charge most phones 2-3 times while keeping prices and portability to a minimum.
The best 10,000mAh power banks:
Editor’s notes: We will regularly update this list of the best 10,000mAh power banks. Regarding the 10,000mAh power banks that feature USB-C ports, make sure your device is compatible before buying.
Redisona 10,000mAh Power Bank
The Redisona 10,000mAh will keep your devices powered with its large internal battery and dual USB ports. It will also look great doing so! The design is elegant and sleek. It’s also a very portable product for its capacity, measuring only 0.86 inches in thickness and weighing just 400g. We wish the device had more ports and Power Delivery for charging laptops, but this one wins in the design department. If you need those extra features, there are other options in this list of the best 10,000mAh power banks.
Samsung Wireless Charger 10,000mAh
This portable charger from Samsung features a standard USB port and a USB-C port. The USB-C port supports up to 15W of output.
What separates this device from most other 10,000mAh portable chargers is right in the name: wireless charging. The battery supports up to 7.5W wireless fast charging with compatible smartphones and other accessories. Samsung’s wireless charger isn’t cheap, but wireless charging support makes this one of the best 10,000mAh power banks you can get.
Anker PowerCore Slim 10,000 PD
Apart from being one of the smallest 10,000mAh portable batteries, the Anker PowerCore Slim 10,000 PD also supports Power Delivery. That means the USB-C port can charge up to 18W. Not to be outdone, the standard USB-A port’s maximum output is 12W. The PowerCore Slim 10,000 PD is only about the same size as your phone, yet it packs enough power to charge it twice.
Uband Mag-Safe Power Bank
What makes this one of the best 10,000mAh power banks is one feature: Mag-Safe support. We may be an Android-centric website, but we can’t deny the reality that Apple devices exist, and there are many of them!
If you or any of your family members have the latest-generation iPhone 12, This portable charger will be great to have around. Simply attach it magnetically to the back of the phone to start charging! Don’t worry if you are not an iPhone user; the battery pack also works with traditional ports.
Zendure Supermini 18W PD 10,000mAh power bank
Living up to its name, the Zendure Supermini 18W PD 10000 is only about the height and width of a credit card. However, it is a bit thicker to hold the full 10,000mAh battery. Zendure’s Supermini power bank also packs just one USB-C outlet for your charging needs, though the 18W PD 3.0 speed should bring a smile to your face.
Rounding out your options, the Supermini comes in blue, red, black, and even silver. It should hold enough charge to bring your phone up to speed twice, and it’s quick to recharge after about three hours. Finally, the aluminum body of the charger is something we don’t usually see in power banks.

Winner of a 2019 Red Dot Design Award, the ZMI PowerPack 10K USB-C features a woven fabric top and bottom. There’s also an aluminum frame that houses the regular USB, micro-USB, and USB-C ports. The regular USB port supports Quick Charge 2.0 output, while the USB-C port supports Power Delivery output and input. That means the PowerPack 10K USB-C supports up to 18W output and input.
As if that wasn’t enough, the portable charger has a great trick up its sleeve: USB adapter mode. If you connect the PowerPack 10K USB-C to a computer, you can connect USB peripherals and use it as a portable adapter for your laptop. Given all the features and fancy exterior, the PowerPack 10K USB-C’s asking price is very reasonable.

But don’t let its cute looks fool you; this thing is powerful. It features 22.5W PD quick charging and can charge three devices at once. It has a couple of USB ports and a USB-C port.
