- Deals on Portable Battery Chargers
With deals a bit slow since the holiday shopping season ended, now is a good time to post about our favorite battery chargers that keep your devices charged.
We occasionally post about Ravpower deals since they became our favorite brand of portable chargers 3 years ago.
We like their quality and price, plus they are backed by a 30 month warranty once you register the product or purchase direct from Ravpower.com.
Can be charged by either a 30W USB-C power adapter or a regular USB power adapter using a USB Micro cable, so it's more versatile than the above charger, but does weigh a bit more.
If you purchase a Ravpower product from Amazon, register your order to increase the product warranty from 18 months to 30 months.
USB-C supports higher power than regular USB, including 45-watt and above which can charge many Intel-based modern laptops that accept USB-C power delivery.
If your laptop came with a USB-C power adapter, check the watt rating on the adapter to see which USB-C battery pack wattage would power your laptop.
USB-C can also charge batteries 3 times faster than regular USB, but you do need a USB-C power adapter.
Our favorite USB-C power adapter is a Freedy 90W USB-C Travel Charger because it packs easily for travel, and can charge two USB-C devices, one at 60W and another at 30W, and provides two QC USB charging ports.
We replaced its 6-foot cord with a 12-foot cord, for better reach.

- RavPower 15,000mAh USB-C and USB Battery Charger for $15
RavPower 15,000mAh Portable Battery Charger with one 18W USB-C output and one QC3.0 USB output.
Click the 50% coupon under the $30 price to get it for $15.
Includes a USB-C cable.
Can charge a USB-C device (up to 18W power delivery) and a regular USB device (with or without QC3.0 fast charging mode).
The 15,000 capacity can recharge a battery from 0% to 100% of an iPhone 12 Pro about 4 times, or an iPad Pro once.
This requires a USB-C power adapter (18W or higher) to charge its battery, and one is not included.
If you are considering buying a USB-C battery pack like this, it is likely you already have a USB-C power adapter that came with the device you want to power, but if not, adapters start at about $8.
We have the 20,000mAh version of this portable battery charger, which has 60W USB-C output.
That one is powerful enough to charge a laptop that uses 60W USB-C charging, effectively expanding its battery life by 50% to 75% while traveling.
Note that most countries and airlines do not allow battery packs in checked luggage, and have a strict limit of 27,000mAh total per carry-on luggage.
If you plan to bring more than one battery pack on your next flight, or a single pack with 27,000mAh or higher capacity, you could be turned away.
