Best 10,000 mAh Power Banks

10,000 mAH is a very popular capacity level for powerbanks as it balances portability with adequate backup capacity. A 10000 mAH power bank will recharge most smartphones about three times. The size and weight of 10,000 mAH powerbanks is still small enough to fit in a pocket (or a small purse) which is another huge plus while you are on-the-go.

Here is our pick of three best 10000 mAH power banks that offer the best mix of features, battery capacity, reliability, quick-charging features, portability and price!

#1 Best Overall,  Lightest & Smallest  10000 mAH Powerbank
PowerCore II 10000 with Quick Charge 2.0 compatible Input and Output

Anker PowerCore II 10000 is the latest 10000 mAH powerbank from Anker released and is selling like hotcakes as it is Anker’s lightest and most compact powerbank that supports fastest charging for Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, S8, S8+,S7,S7 Edge, S6, Note 8, Note 5 etc. besides supporting the fastest 2.4 amp charging mode for Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 5,SE,5S etc. The powerbank can be fully charged in four hours using standard Samsung fast charger or any QuickCharge wall charger. But, the biggest factor in making it a smashing hit is the price which is same as the earlier version that it replaces.

Anker PowerCore II 10000 now comes with a 10-position LED charging indicator and a new scratch proof rugged design.
