Most of the power banks I have used recently have been massive batteries, going all the way up to the Crave 50,000mAh Powerpack. It is great for a weekend away, not so good for a night out when you want to need a little extra juice to get you through the night.
The Ugreen 10000mAh PD Power Bank is the perfect solution for that, easily fitting into you trouser pockets and offering 18W power delivery for quick charging.
- USB-C PD in and out
- USB-A out
- USB-C Input (PD): DC 5V=3A, 9V=2A, 15V=1.2A
- USB-C Output (PD): DC 5V=3A, 9V=2A, 15V=1.2A
- USB Output : DC 5V=3A, 9V=2A, 15V=1.2A
- Weight: 194g
Plug it in, and it charges your phone. That’s about it. The main thing here is the size of it, its about 66% of the height and width of my Huawei P40 Pro, but probably double the thickness. You can easily carry it around in the tightest of pants with minimal bulge and no noticeable weight.
The 18W PD is about as good a most phones will take, and the power delivery is good enough to charge devices like the Nintendo Switch.
Price and Alternative Options
This is currently just £14.44 on Amazon. It is a no-frills option, just 2 ports and 18W with 10000mAh total charge. You even get a cable included.
There are cheaper options from lesser-known brands, for the sake of a couple of quid I would stick to a better-known option though.
The Charmast 10000mAh Mini Power Bank is just £11.89
If you were to go with the Anker PowerCore 10000 PD Redux that is £30 but includes and USB-C cable
There is never much to say about power banks, it is small, fits into my pocket without bulk, charges my phone and does it all while being very affordable. It is the perfect size for single day single user/device use and will always be handy as a backup battery pack.
