You might be coming to this list to pick up a portable power bank for yourself, but why not put one under the tree as well?
Okay, so power banks and portable battery chargers don’t make for the most exciting gifts but don’t count them out. I’ll never forget the year I got my mom a bunch of mobile accessories (a bluetooth kit for her car, a power bank, etc) as part of her Christmas gift. She took out the battery charger and said “what the heck is this?” Fasf-forward two years later and it’s always in her purse, for those moments when her phone needs a little extra juice. She swears it’s a must-have now.
For us techies, a power bank is kind of a “duh” accessory, but you’d be surprised how many people would love the convenience of a portable battery charger but would never actually think to buy one themselves. Help these tech challenged folks out this holiday season and buy them one! Best of all, it’s a pretty cheap gift for those on tight holiday budgets.

This is also an excellent 10,000mAh power bank option for its portability.
The 10,000mAh power bank from RAVPower will be able to provide close to two full charges for most current gen smartphones. The device is sleek and portable, and is similar in size to a smartphone like a Pixel 2. You can charge two devices simultaneously using the USB-A port and the USB-C port. You can also quickly recharge the device by using both the USB-C input and microUSB input together.
The Tronsmart 10,000mAh portable charger is another great sleek and portable option. The device comes with a USB-C port that can fast charge a smartphone and be used to charge the power bank itself. The regular USB-A port supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 and 2.0, as well as Huawei FCP. The power bank can be used to charge two devices simultaneously.
