Samsung Galaxy S10, S9, S8 series and Note 10, Note 9 & Note 8 series are excellent flagship class phones. These phones have 3000 – 5000 mAh batteries, but power banks or portable chargers for Samsung S/Note 10/9/8 phones are still a must-have accessory.
Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+, S9, S9+, S10e, Note 9, Note 10, Note 8 & S8, S8+ – 18 watt Fast Charging Works For All
All 10/9/8 series Samsung Galaxy S and Note phones can be fast charged (zero to 50% in about 30-35 mins) with 18-watt USB-C PD chargers. S10/S9/S8 series support 15-watt Samsung Adaptive Fast Charging. Only the newer S21, S20 and Note 20/10 series support maximum 25-watt & 45-watt charging. This means that all the Samsung Galaxy S series, Note series, and A/J series phones can be charged at fast speed using USB-C PD power banks.
The latest S21, S20, Note 20/10 series also support 18-watt fast charging and a USB-C PD power bank will work great when you upgrade in future. Latest S21, S20, Note 20/10 series support maximum 25-watt or 45-watt PPS USB-C PD charging. However, these phones also get charged reasonably fast with 18-watt power banks. If you want the ultimate fast-charging solution compatible with S/Note 21/20/10 series, we recommend ZMI Powerpack 20K Pro. For S21, S20 series and Note 10 series, the charging time difference between 18-watt and 25/45-watt chargers/power banks are not significant. In fact, there is hardly any difference between 25-watt and 45-watt charging times for these phones and 18-watt is perfectly good (and better for battery life) charging speed.
We will consider only USB-C power banks as micro-USB is obsolete and cover best fast charging power banks for Samsung S/Note phones in these categories –

PowerCore Essential 20000 PD Cons
RAVPower 20100 USB-C PD is a versatile powerbank that offers USB-C input/charging ports and even Lightning/micro-USB input ports for charging the powerbank. This means RAVPower 20100 USB-C PD can be charged directly using not just your Samsung phone’s USB-C charger but even your iPhone charger or older android micro-USB cable chargers. It can fast charge all Samsung smartphones including S10, S10+, S9, S9+, S8, Note 9/8 with either the USB-C port or the Quickcharge 3.0 port.
RAVPower 20100 USB-C PD also offers full QuickCharge 3.0 charging support allowing it to recharge QC 3.0 compatible phones such as LG V50, V40 etc. at fastest speeds. The RAVPower 20100 USB-C PD portable charger can be recharged with Samsung chargers in 6-7 hours.
A key selling point of RAVPower 20100 USB-C PD is its price. However, its build quality is not good as Anker’s PowerCore Essential 20000 PD. For occasional use and non-heavy use, it is still fine.
Tip: For long-life of your power-banks, store them for long-periods with 40-50% charge. DO NOT store power banks for weeks or months with 100% charge or near-empty charge.
- Fast 18-watt/15-watt charging for all Samsung smartphones including S10, S10+, S20, S20+, S9, S9+, S8, Note 9, Note 8

RAVPower 20100 USB-C PD Cons
- Quality is not as good as PowerCore Essential 20000 PD
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 USB-C PD bundled with USB-C wall charger
Both these excellent power banks come with the highest TSA-allowed battery capacity (27000 mah or 100 Watt-hours) and will fast recharge Samsung S10, S9, S8, Note 8, etc. five times or charge S20, S20+, Note 10 fully about 4 times. While both are perfectly good portable chargers for your S10/S9+/S8 or Note 10/9/8, we are describing their differences in detail to help you make an informed choice.
RAVPower 26800 USB-C PD 30 watt comes without any bundled wall charger and it can be recharged either by a standard USB 2.4 amp wall charger in 14-15 hours or by a 30-watt USB-C PD wall charger in 4.5 hours. RAVPower 26800 USB-C PD will also recharge your Macbooks, iPad, Nintendo Switch, iPhone 11, 11 Pro, XR, iPad Pros, X/8/8+, and most other USB-C Android phones at fastest speed.
We recommend buying a USB-C PD 30 watt portable charger such as RAVPower 26800 USB-C PD (instead of a QC 3.0 powerbank) as both Google and Apple are moving towards USB-C PD in their latest phones. The latest iPhones (iPhone 11, 11 Pro, XR) and iPads also support USB-C fast charging.
A Note on chargers: To charge RAVPower 26800 USB-C PD in 4.5 hours, use a 30-watt+ USB PD wall charger such as Aukey 36-watt USB PD charger or Anker Powerport II USB PD wall chargers (and not a 30 watt regular USB-C charger). We recommend either Aukey 36-watt USB PD charger or Anker 36-watt Powerport III Duo as these will charge both your PD powerbank and your S10/S9/S8/Note 9/Note 8 simultaneously at fast speeds (18 watt PD + 18-watt PD) from a single watt outlet. Aukey 36-watt USB PD charger is better as it can even deliver 30-watts if only one port is used.
You can also go all the way and get a dual PD charger such as Aukey Omnia GaN 63-watt or Anker Powerport Atom GaN 60-watt charger. Both these can charge power bank at 30-watt PD and at same time charge phones at 18-watt PD
- Zero to 50% charge for Samsung S9, S9+, S10, S8, Note 9/8 in about 30 mins
- Fastest charging for all Samsung smartphones including S10, S9, S9+
- Can charge a wide variety of phones and devices such as Macbooks, iPads etc at fastest speed.
- Can be charged directly with Samsung USB-C wall chargers in 12 hours or with a 30-watt USB-C PD charger in 4.5 hours
- Can also be charged with both a USB-C wall charger or a regular wall charger in about 14 hrs ( using 2 amp wall charger).
- An option with bundled USB-C wall charger would have been good. Still, combine it with a Aukey 36-watt USB PD charger or Anker Powerport 49.5 watt and it is a much better (and versatile) deal than its nearest competitor with bundled charger.
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 USB-C PD bundled with USB-C wall charger
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 USB-C PD is Anker’s latest version of its PowerCore+ 26800 high capacity USB-C PD power bank and comes in three flavors – 87 watt, 60-watt and 45-watt for charging laptops and all latest USB-C phones and tablets.
It is a great choice if you require both a portable charger and a quality USB-C PD wall charger as the bundled USB-C wall charger will cost about $30+ if purchased separately.
The Anker Powercore+ 26800 PD can be charged by the bundled 60-watt USB-C PD wall charger in less than 4 hours.
The Anker Powercore+ 26800 PD will also recharge all devices requiring USB-C PD such as Macbooks, USB-C ultrabooks, iPad, Nintendo Switch (while being played), iPhone 12, 11, XR, X/8/8+, and all latest upcoming USB-C Android phones at their fast speed. As both Google and Apple have adopted USB-C PD charging in their latest phones, it is a great choice to charge both laptops and phones from a single power bank.
Besides being future proof, an added advantage of USB-C PD portable chargers is that high capacity USB-C PD portable chargers such as Anker Powercore+ 26800 PD or RAVPower 26800 USB-C PD can be charged much faster over USB-C PD ( under 4 hours).
- Zero to 50% charge for Samsung S/Note 20/10/9/8 in about 30 mins
- Fastest charging for all Samsung smartphones ranging from S21, S20 to S10/S9/S8 series and A series
- Can charge Macbooks, iPads, Nintendo Switch, USB-C ultrabooks et.c at fastest speed.
- Can be charged via the Samsung USB-C wall chargers in 8 hours or with the provided 60-watt USB-C PD charger in 3.5 hours
- A lower priced option without the bundled USB-C wall charger would have been good for users who already have a wall charger
