Camping Power Banks is one of the most important phone accessories, especially if you love traveling, camping, or hiking. These little devices let you juice up your phone in no time, especially if there’s no electricity (or a charging port) in the vicinity. All you need is a fully charged power bank, and you’ll have your phone back in action in no time.
However, when it comes to shopping for power banks for outdoor use, you’ll have to look into certain criteria. For one, they need to be lightweight and portable. Secondly, these devices should top up your phone quickly. After all, you wouldn’t want your phone plugged into these devices and miss out on some pretty great wildlife shots.
More importantly, they should be able to juice your phone more than once. For this, we will be looking at power banks with bigger capacities.
1. AUKEY 30000MAH USB-C PORTABLE POWER BANK
Over the last couple of years, Aukey has emerged as a popular name in the electronics market due to its build and quality, and this device is no different. It has over 67% positive reviews on Amazon, with users praising its charging power and the long battery life.
Calculating the actual capacity of this 30,000mAh battery puts it around 20,000mAh, which should be decent for most phones. A 5,000mAh phone should be able to draw more than three full charges before it needs a recharge.
2. ZEROLEMON TOUGHJUICE EXTERNAL BATTERY PACK
The good news is that the USB Type-C port makes it ideal for charging your MacBook or your Nintendo Switch, though the speed is not as fast as native chargers.
Thankfully, this battery pack comes with a protective casing. There are flaps on top of each USB port. That are expected to protect the device from a quick tumble and to shield it from dust, grime, and other small particles.
3. ANKER POWERCORE SPEED 20000
The good thing is that it refuels pretty quickly and takes around six hours, which is pretty neat considering its capacity. When it comes to user reviews, many have spoken highly of its durability and battery life, as you can see in the screenshot below,
You won’t get the same battery life as the ones above. If we talk numbers, you should get around 14,500mAh. Just remember to keep it charged. Last but not least, the PowerCore Speed 20000 comes with rounded corners, which ensure that the device doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb from your bag.
4. RAVPOWER PRIME 3-PORT POWER BANK
When it comes to the charging speed, the Prime has two ports. While one charge at 5V/2.4A, the other (USB Type-C) port has an output of 5V/3A.
So, all you need to do is charge it fully before leaving for your camping trip, and the rest will be taken care of by the device. The good thing is that if you have a decent power source, the power bank can be replenished quickly.
5. ANKER POWERCORE ESSENTIAL 20000 PD
And that’s not all. Even the secondary port has an output of 18W. Plus, it’s has the built-in trickle charging mode made to fuel low powered devices like headphones and fitness trackers.
The only thing which you need to keep in mind is that this power bank works the best with a USB-C Power Delivery (PD) charger. If you use a standard charger, it might not charge at its optimum speed.
5. BLAVOR SOLAR POWER BANK
We all know that when camping in the wild puts forward a variety of situations, such as the lack of continuous power supply, making it difficult to charge the power banks. Thankfully, there are a couple of solar power banks which can refuel themselves via solar energy, when needed. Cool, right?
HELLO, MOTHER NATURE
While the beauty of mother nature makes the best of us forget the digital world, however, living away from it isn’t an easy task. Be it an emergency or a photography moment, and it makes sense to keep a working phone with you at all times.
