Apple iPhones are one of the best selling smartphones in the world and offer much better battery life compared to Android phones. However, portable chargers for iPhones are still a must have for travellers, commuters and even general users.

The number of recharges given by your power bank for iPhone depends mostly on your phone’s screen-size as iPhone batteries broadly come in two sizes. Small screen iPhones (iPhone 8, 7, 6S, 6, SE etc.) have smaller batteries of around 1800 maH while big screen iPhones (11, 11 Pro, XR, XS, XS Max, X, 8 Plus, 7 Plus, 6/6s Plus) have much larger batteries of around 2600-3200 mAh.

We have compiled best portable chargers for iPhones in two categories –

Best Fast Charging portable chargers for iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS Max, XS, XR, 8, 8+ and iPhone X (zero to 50% in 30 minutes via 18 watt USB-C PD)

Best Fastest Charging Power banks for iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, 6, 6s Plus, 6 Plus, SE, 5s, 5  (zero to 50% in 40-50 minutes or twice as fast as Apple iphone chargers via 2.4 amp charging)

Fast charging – How iPhone 11 Pro, 11, 11 Pro Max, XR, XS, XS Max, 8, 8 Plus & X can be charged zero to 50% in 30 mins

The 2019 released iPhone 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, 11, and 2018 released iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and 2017 released iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X are the only iPhones that offer 18-watt fast charging over USB-C PD (Power Delivery). This means you can charge your  iPhone XS Max, XS, XR, 8, 8 Plus and  iPhone X from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes using a USB-C to Lightning Cable and a USB-C PD portable charger or PD power adapter, as well as any Macbook charger. However, the stock Apple 5-watt charger that comes with your iPhone 11, XS/XS Max, XR/X/8/8+ will NOT fast charge your iPhone. The new iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max (but not the iPhone 11) come with fast-charging 18-watt USB-C PD chargers.

Anker PowerCore Slim 10000 PD can fast-charge iPhone XR, 11, 11 Pro, XS X, XS Max, 8, 8 Plus from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes

To fast charge your iPhone 11, 11 Pro/Max, XR, XS,  XS Max, X and 8, 8+, you just need two things –

Earlier iPhone models such as iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 6, 6S, 6S+, 5, 5S, SE do not support zero to 50% in 30 minutes fast-charging (via USB-C PD). Instead, earlier iPhones (7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6 & earlier) support maximum charging speed of zero to 50% in about 40-50 minutes (with 2.4 amp charging) and can be fast charged either with 2.4 amp output portable chargers or with any USB-C PD power banks.

  1. Hi PORTABLE POWER EXPERTS !
    First of all i would like to give a great credits to you, seriously you should start a youtube channel making videos to giving out this knowledge. You really helping people like me that needs to have a better knowledge/understanding in deciding purchasing on Powerbank! Fabulous job man!

    Get to my main question is it necessary to change to the newest Anker PowerCore Essential 20000 PD Portable Charger from my previous Powerbank Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD, 20100mAh Portable Charger. I’m currently using Iphone X now.

  2. Hello, I’m looking for a new power bank as I switch to iPhone 8 Plus and need at least 2 ports – one for me, one for my wife’s iPhone 11 pro max. And price-wise looks like Anker Powercore 1000 PD ($45) is not the best option. So I’ve started looking for bigger capacity ones like Anker PowerCore Essential 20000 Portable Charger, 20000mAh ($49) as that’s the only one that comes without a bundle. Is there any major difference between Essential vs Speed vs PowerCore+ series? Thanx

    1. Hi Sergei,
      Anker PowerCore Essential 20000 PD is a close match for your requirements (but with one port) for iPhone 8 Plus and 11 Pro Max and and is currently available at an excellent price.

      As both your phones (iPhone 8+ & 11 Pro Max) support PD fast charging, we suggest you avoid the PowerCore Essential portable charger (without PD in the name) that you have mentioned as it does not offer USB-C PD fast charging and costs nearly the same.

      Also, if you require 2 ports, then we suggest considering the excellent Luxtude PowerRapid PD Powerbanks – Luxtude PowerRapid 10000 , PoweRapid 13000, and PowerRapid 20000. All three offer PD fast charging output for your iPhone 8+/11 Pro Max, have 3 charging ports, and offer excellent quality at a very good price, and even come with a good wall charger as extra.

      Differences among four Anker 20000mah powerbanks in short
      – Essential comes with USB-C charging port for charging power bank but does not offer USB-C PD output or input.
      – Essential PD has PD USB-C Input and Output as well as Quickcharge 2.0 output
      – Speed comes with Quickcharge 3.0 Input/Output but no USB-C PD
      – Speed PD has USB-C PD input/output only (no Quickcharge) and comes as a charger bundle
      Thanks!

      1. Thanks for the answer. Still thinking more about 10000. Can you help me undestad the difference between redux pd and RAVPower 10000 pd. The price difference is huge 46 vs 27. Thanx

        1. For charging iPhones, feature-wise there is almost no difference between RAVPower 10000 PD and Anker PowerCore 10000 PD Redux as both are USB-C PD 18-watt input/output power banks. RAVPower 10000 PD does have two extra features- Quickcharge capable USB port and Quickcharge capable micro-USB port for charging power bank. However, If you just want the better of the two for charging iPhones then clearly has better build quality overall – for both charging circuits and Li-ion cells. RAVPower 10000 PD is a perfectly great portable charger for the money and of course offers much more value for money.

          Thanks
