The power bank’s plastic body is easy on the phone-screens in the pocket and looks good as well. The narrow design leads to excellent grip and the portable charger slips effortlessly in small pockets and handbags.

RAVPower 6700 vs Anker PowerCore II 6700

Anker PowerCore II 6700 is perhaps the closest rival of RAVPower 6700 in light, small power banks.

RAVPower 6700 has a maximum output current of 2.4 amp which is same as that of Anker PowerCore II 6700. Both the power banks also come with identical battery capacity of 6700 mAh and similar high quality Li-ion cells.

The RAVPower 6700 power bank weighs almost same as Anker PowerCore II 6700 with both weighing about 4.2 ounces (120 grams) in real world tests. The claimed weights in brochures and on the product pages are misleading.

The RAVPower 6700 has dimensions of 3.7 x 1.7 x 0.84 inches which again closely match that of PowerCore 6700 (3.78 x 1.69 x 0.91 inches).

All things compared, one can say that both these light portable chargers are evenly matched. In our opinion, the RAVPower 6700 is a much better value for money in comparison with Anker PowerCore II 6700 which on the other hand has a slightly better build quality overall.

Jackery 6000 Bar vs RAVPower 6700

Jackery’s 6000 Bar  is another close competitor of RAVPower 6700 in smallest and lightest portable chargers.

RAVPower 6700 has a higher maximum output current of 2.4 amp compared to the maximum output current of Jackery 6000 which is 2.1 amps. The battery capacity of the RAVPower 6700 is 6700 mAh which is more than 20% higher than the Jackery’s 6000 Bar power bank’s 6000 mAh.

The weight of Jackery 6000 Bar is 5.3 ounce (150 grams) and is quite more than RAVPower 6700  which weighs 4.2 ounces (120 grams).

It is a no contest. RAVPower 6700 is clearly the much better portable charger here when compared to Jackery 6000 and as it offers far more compact build, more battery capacity and is lighter in weight than the Jackery’s 6000 Bar.
