Best USB-C Power Bank For Your 2018 iPad Pro

Published

In this video review, I go over what I believe is the best USB-C power bank you can get for your new 2018 iPad Pro. One of the new features of the 2018 iPad Pro is its USB-C port, this new port supports fast charging. The charger included inside the box is pretty fast at 18 W but the 2018 iPad Pro does support even faster charging. I was in the market for a new power bank to use with my new iPad as well as many other devices I use daily, my wants were simple, I wanted USB-C with PD and a large capacity to keep all my devices running.

I already own a few USB-C compatible power banks however none of them supported fast charging or Power Delivery. PD for the most part in simple terms means it can charge larger devices such as laptops via USB-C. Not to mention many of the USB-C power banks on the market still have to be recharged by micro USB or a combination of micro USB and a second USB-C cable…and they can take up to 14 hours to recharge.

I decided to go with the Anker 30W PowerCore+ 26,800 mAh with USB-C PD, this package also included a USB-C cable and a 30 W PD charger. This power bank can charge at 30W and is powerful enough to charge some of today’s USB-C laptops and MacBooks. The included 30W charger can recharge the power bank in as little as 4.8 hours, and can also be used to charge USB-C devices directly such as USB-C smartphone or in my case a USB-C iPad Pro and because its 30W it will charge my iPad significantly faster than the included stock charger that comes with the 2018 iPad Pro. But what’s really nice is the power bank can charge my iPad Pro at 30W as well resulting in almost an hours difference than using the stock charger. This power bank also has 2 USB-A ports for charging using a standard USB cable. You can purchase an optional 3rd party case for it. It keeps all the accessories together in one convenient kit and if you have it packed in a camera bag or backpack keeps it and your other gear protected.
