RAVPower 10000mAh USB-C PD Battery Pack | $19 | Amazon
The first USB-C battery packs were all gigantic things that were designed for situations like keeping a laptop powered up during a long flight, and indeed, those are great!
But lately, we’ve seen a proliferation of smaller, less powerful, and significantly cheaper USB-C PD packs like this one from RAVPower, just $19 today on Amazon. We’ve had it a few bucks cheaper as part of an exclusive, but this is still an excellent price for what you’re getting.
Its 18W USB-C port can’t charge a MacBook at full speed (though it can usually maintain its current battery level as long as you aren’t playing games or exporting video), but it’s enough power to charge a Nintendo Switch while you play Zelda at 40,000 feet, or your iPhone at the fastest possible speed before you land (with a compatible Lightning cable). For a lot of us, that’s exactly what we need out of this sort of thing.
Need more power, or more capacity? Anker’s 26,800mAh battery pack with a 30W USB-C port is also on sale right now.
