Manufacturers are continuously pushing the envelope to improve the battery life on our smartphones and other gadgets.
But given the amount of time we spend on our devices, their batteries are bound to drain out sooner than we would like. Hence, what one needs is a portable and fast-charging solution called a power bank.
Here are the best Type-C power banks available in India.
Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD: Priced at Rs. 7,000
With a premium build quality, a capacity of 20,100mAh, and power delivery of 22.5W, you can't go wrong with the Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD.
It can charge laptops with Type-C PD (like MacBook Air), tablets, smartphones, and even Bluetooth speakers.
Effectively, as per the company, this power bank packs almost seven iPhone 7 charges or five Galaxy S8 charges into your bag.
RAVPower RP-PB097 20,100mAh 45W PD: Priced at Rs. 3,659
Like Anker, RAVPower is a trusted brand when it comes to power banks, chargers, and other mobile accessories.
The company's PB097 power bank offers a battery capacity of 20,100mAh and upto 45W of power delivery. It also offers IP67-rated build quality, making it great for everyday use as well as for outdoor trips and excursions.
What's more? There's also a built-in LED flashlight.
Stuffcool Type-C 10,000mAh power bank: Priced at Rs. 2,659
Stuffcool's power bank does lack on the capacity front when pitted against the Anker or RAVPower models but in terms of performance, it is right up there.
It packs 10,000mAh of battery and offers 18W fast charging, thanks to Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 support.
Further, given its dual USB Type-A ports and a USB Type-C port, it can charge upto three devices simultaneously.
Pebble ACE Type-C 10,000mAh power bank: Priced at Rs. 1,499
Pebble's ACE is one of the more premium looking power banks available under Rs. 1,500. It has a matte-finished body, bright LED indicators, and built-in micro-USB as well as Type-C cables.
The power bank delivers a maximum output of 12W and can charge upto three devices simultaneously. Notably, it also comes with 6 months replacement guarantee.
LCARE QC 3.0 10,000mAh power bank: Priced at Rs. 1,195
LCARE is a relatively new Indian brand in this segment. The company's QC 3.0 10,000mAh power bank comes with Quick Charge 3.0 support, offering 18W fast charging.
However, QC 3.0 output is available only via the Type-A port and not the Type-C port.
Overall, it's a compact power bank, but the lack of fast charging input/output over Type-C port might be a bummer.
