Ampere Full Circle also has a Type-C port that provides 18W of power. It is not a small device, weighing around 350g and measuring 5.6 by 2.8 inches.
The teardrop design makes it easier to manage as the thickness is decreased gradually from top to bottom. The charging port has rubber straps.

2. Bezalel Prelude
Bezalel Prelude may not have a huge battery capacity like other power banks on this list, but it’s surely one of the most convenient ones out there. You can simply latch on the protective cover on Prelude’s back and attach it to your smartphone. This allows you to attach the power bank wirelessly to your phone, whiles you casually use your smartphone. The Qi wireless charging power is capped at 10W, while the USB-C port can reach up to 18W. This power bank is designed to not just be functional and practical, but also sleek and aesthetic.
Prelude’s signature nano-suction pad that allows the power ban’s body to stick to the phone conveniently is durable, reusable, and protected by a magnetic panel. It’s considerably light at around 158g and can be easily peeled off your phone to be charged or stored.
The Bezalel Prelude battery capacity can charge most phones once. So it’s up to you to decide on the tradeoff between functionality and practicality. At around £57.80, Bezalel Prelude is a bit on the pricey side. But if you’re willing to sacrifice battery capacity for stylishness and the smart design, it’s definitely worth it. These merits have granted Bezalel Prelude a rating of 4.8 stars out of 5.
3. Aukey power bank 8,000mAh
If you’re on the market for a power bank that can charge multiple devices and do it fast, the Aukey wireless power bank is a pretty good pick. The battery capacity is 8000mAh, which should fully charge your phone at least twice, and the Qi compatibility allows you to charge your phone wirelessly by simply placing it on top of the power bank. This wireless charging power bank may be a bit weaker than some power banks at 5W but makes up for it with 4 different ports. There are two USB-A ports, the first supports 3.0 Qualcomm Quick Charge and the other supports up to 12W of power.
The USB-C port can support power up to 18W, and the last port is a Micro USB that is used to charge the power bank. Aukey is relatively slim but it weighs almost 200 grams, with matte black finishing and a glossy frame. The power is shown with LEDs that indicate the percentage. Aukey is compatible with low-current devices such as smartwatches and trackers, allowing it to charge them safely by switching to low-current mode. This wireless power bank is a good all-around choice and it’s very recommended if you’re on a budget as it’s only £21.69. Aukey sits on the top of the best wireless power bank list with a rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars.
4. Morphie Powerstation
If you’re an iOS user, then you might be in luck. The Morphie Powerstation is an all-in-one power bank that can really make your life easier. If you have an Apple Watch, the Morphie Powerstation uses a native built-in magnetic charger that can charge smartwatches and AirPods wirelessly. Aside from the wireless capabilities, you can use the USB-C port if you’d like to charge it even quicker.
With 8,000mAh, you can charge your devices more than once from zero. What’s really interesting about Morphie is that it can charge your iPhone in 30 minutes if you use the USB-C port. The only reasonable drawback this charger has is that it’s customized to work with Apple the best and it’s rather expensive at around £100, but many people see that it’s completely worth it with a rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars.
5. Fuse Chicken Universal All-in-One World Travel Charger
With such a long name, you can expect the Fuse Chicken Universal Travel Charger to be a great multifunctional gadget. Wireless charging is up to 10W, USB-A ports support Quick Charging 3, and the USB-C port can charge up to 18W.

The Fuse is relatively thin yet a bit on the heavy side for around 236grams, finish in matte black plastic and covered by an elegant white frame. The capacity is around 6,7000mAh, which is convenient but not as big as some may expect. It may be a bit on the pricey side at £36, but it’s still relatively cheaper than a lot of others. We give it a score of 4 stars out of 5.
Power banks are relatively recent, as they were developed around 20 years ago. They became quite popular with the adoption of smartphones, as the early versions of smartphones drained batteries quickly. Wireless power banks were later introduced to the scene, to remove annoying charging cables. To choose the right power bank for your needs, you need to determine your budget and weigh the pros and cons to reach the best option for you. This way, you will be able to make a calculated decision that you will not regret.
