Best Powerbanks for OnePlus 6T, 6, 5T, 5, and 3T/3

OnePlus series phones such as Oneplus 6T, 6, and upcoming OnePlus 7 offer flagship smartphone experience at extremely reasonable prices. OnePlus phones including 6T, 6, 5T & 5 come with a unique DashCharge (5 Volts @ 4 amps) fast-charging wall charger. Even though, Oneplus phones DO NOT support USB-C PD charging or Quickcharge. However, still USB-C PD or Quickcharge powerbanks are better option for OnePlus phones as the QuickCharge or PD powerbanks these days cost almost same and get fully charged in one-half to one-fourth of time taken by regular powerbanks.

Here is our selection of best portable chargers for OnePlus phones on the basis of criteria including power output consistency and quality, features, charging times of powerbanks, etc.
