Best iPhone Power Banks in the Philippines 2020 - 2021

Are you looking for a small portable power bank for your iPhone to charge it on the go? Here are some of our best recommendations that won't burn a hole in your pocket.

The growing dependence on our smartphones these days is taking a toll on their batteries. And if you own an iPhone, you probably know that its batteries are smaller and drain faster than its Android counterparts.

It's a headache when your iPhone battery gives out when you're on the go, but your power bank can save you: it will enable you to quickly recharge your device and carry on with whatever you were doing.

Myriads of power banks are available in the market with which you can charge up your iPhone and other Apple devices. But before purchasing one, you should pay attention to some specifics of the power bank that you're planning to buy.

Here's a list of essential features you should check before buying a power bank.

Picking the Right Power Bank for Your iPhone

Battery capacity

First and foremost, you should check that the power bank you are going to purchase is at least three to four times the capacity of your iPhone battery. Buy one with at least 10,000mAh capacity so that you can charge your phone more than two or three times. That will come handy when you're on the road for a few days.

Number and type of ports

Power banks in the market nowadays have two or three charging ports. If you carry more than one device, purchase one that features more than one port.

Traditionally, power banks came with USB 2.0 and Micro USB ports but newer models offer a USB Type-C port too. Picking a power bank with a USB Type-C port will save you the hassle of owning different types of cables.

Output voltage

The output voltage of the power bank is very crucial. It should be equal to or greater than your iPhone. If the output voltage is less than your iPhone, the power bank will charge slowly; its efficiency will also drop significantly when powering more than two devices at once. It can even damage your iPhone's charging port and battery too. The standard output voltage of a power bank should be at least 5V.

Portability

Portability is a paramount aspect. You should choose a power bank that's lightweight, robustly built, and easily fits into your pocket. Many companies are focusing on making less bulky power banks.

Now let's move on and look at the best iPhone power banks available online. We tried to keep the list simple by picking ones within the affordable PHP 1,000 range, and made sure that our selection offers the best value for your money. They all are equipped with a 10,000mAh battery at minimum and feature USB Type-C ports for added convenience.
