Portable devices all have one main thing in common and that would that they have to be recharged. The thing with charging is that we want the fastest recharging speed for our devices, and the first device that comes to mind are smartphones as basically everyone now owns a smartphone. That said, one the second most used portable devices are tablets and when it comes to charging them we’re going to want the fastest charging speed possible as tablets use larger batteries and that results in them taking longer times to recharge to their full power.
Of course, most of us tend to use USB wall chargers but the better option is to use portable chargers and that’s because we’re able to charge devices like our tablets and smartphones to full power while we’re away from an AC outlet. That is why I’m going to be going over the most useful power banks that you should be should using with a tablet. As the one that you do get for these larger devices need to have higher power capacities and they also have powerful charging speeds with their ports.
Anker PowerCore 20100
This is one of Anker’s best high capacity power banks, and it’s called the PowerCore 20100. It, of course, has a 20,100mAh power capacity, that’s enough power to charge most tablets to full power about two times. The other great part of this power bank is its two USB ports as each of the ports has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and most tablets such as iPads and also Samsung Galaxy tablets have a max charging speed of 5V/2.0A or 5V/2.4A. Another great part of this charger is that it has a max output of 4.8A and that means you’re able to use both of its ports at their max power at the same time. This is definitely one of those regular power banks to use as a portable charger for the Kindle because of its standard charging speed and its long-lasting power capacity.
The form factor of this power bank is also another great part of it and that’s because it measures just half a foot long and is just 0.9 inches thick. Which kind of makes it slim for a 20,000mAh power capacity portable charger. It has a 5V/2.0A input which could have been improved with a 5V/2.4A input recharging speed, but as long as you’re recharging this power bank while you’re sleeping, you’ll be good.
Aukey 20,000mAh Power Bank
Yes, this is another 20,000mAh power bank but this charger is from, Aukey. A company that basically stands toe to toe with Anker and there are quite a few differences with this portable charger. First, though, we’ll just go over the similarities and that would be that this power bank uses two USB ports too and the each of these ports also has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A each; with the max output of this power bank also being 4.8A. Aukey also has a Quick Charge variation of this power bank with one of its ports using Quick Charge 2.0 to charge Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speeds.
How is Quick Charge helpful for tablets? There are some tablets out on the market such as the Sony Xperia Z4 and the Xperia Z3 tablets that are compatible with Quick Charge.
Another thing is that this power bank has its two input ports, and even though you can’t use them at the same time, it’s still very useful to have two different methods of recharging. One of input ports is a Micro-USB that most power banks have and then the other input port is the Lightning input that not too many portable chargers use. As a result of using these two input ports, those that use Android smartphones or even Apple devices such as iPads or iPhones can recharge this power bank using the charging cable that they use to charge their devices with.
EasyAcc 26,000mAh Power Bank
When it comes to very high capacity power banks, it’s quite normal for them to have two ports even three USB charging ports. That said, it’s quite rare for portable chargers to have 4 USB ports but this EasyAcc power bank does have 4 ports. First though, let’s go over its power capacity which is 26,000mAh as that’s a lot of power that can last you about a week worth of power.
Then there are the 4 USB charging ports that each has a charging rate of 5V/2.4A and the max output of the power bank is 4.8A. In this case, if you want relatively fast charging when you’re charging multiple devices all at once, then it’s best to charge 3 devices at once only. That’s because when you’re charging 4 devices at once with this power bank then that can result in a slower speed for each of the devices that are charging.
That said, the fact that you can charge 4 devices at once with this power bank is still really great because you can very well have two tablets and two smartphones charging at once.
Another part that makes this power bank great is its recharging and that’s because there are two input ports with this portable charger. Both of them are Micro-USB and each of them has a recharging speed of 5V/2.0A and the best part is that you can use them both at the same time to recharge this power bank at a 4A recharge speed.
RAVPower 26,800mAh Power Bank
Basically, on the same level as the above EasyAcc power bank, this is RAVPower’s 26,800mAh portable charger that has three USB ports. With this high of a power capacity, you’re able to charge a Galaxy Tab 4 to its max power multiple times as even the Galaxy Tab 4 has a 6,000mAh power capacity. That said, the use of 3 charging ports isn’t really a downgrade from the EasyAcc charger that we had before this. As each of the ports on this power bank also have a charging rate of 5V/2.4A and the max output of the power bank is 5.5A. So even when you’re charging 3 devices at once each of the devices is able to charge quite quickly.
This RAVPower portable charger uses just a single Micro-USB input port, but thankfully it has a 5V/2.4A recharging speed. As long as you’re using a 5V/2.4A USB wall charger to recharge this power bank then you’re able to recharge it to its max power within 13-14 hours. For a 26,800mah power bank that has a single input port, that is actually quite a fast recharging speed.
