Travel Gadget Essentials Buying Guide

Anker Power Bank

I’ve had a wide range of portable power banks over the years, and they’ve mostly been rubbish. I find the unbranded or cheap ones work well for a while. However, eventually, the USB ports fail or physically break, the capacity drops off considerably, and I even had one suffer overheating issues. However, Anker has a rock-solid reputation and they themselves boast about how you’ll be joining their 55 million+ customers. In fairness, that’s a pretty solid boast. The few Anker products I’ve owned have lasted years without fail, and while they can cost a bit more money, it’s money saved in the long run.

At 20000mAh their 525 Power Bank is capable of delivering some serious power, with a 20W USB C port that can charge an iPhone 12 to 50% in just 30 minutes. Furthermore, it’ll charge the phone to 100% five times, meaning it’ll help you through a few days without having to find a plug socket. I(t’s also surprisingly compact for the amount of power it can deliver, so it’ll sit in your backpack or luggage easily enough. It’s also not too cumbersome so handing it with your phone or tablet connected isn’t too awkward.


  • The Anker Advantage: Join the 55 million+ powered by our leading technology.
  • Charge Fast Anywhere: The 20W USB-C port has enough power to charge an iPhone 12 to 50% in just 30 minutes. Also equipped with an 18W USB port if you need to charge a second device.
  • Ultra-High Cell Capacity: The massive 20,000mAh cell capacity provides 5 charges for iPhone 12, more than 4 full charges for Samsung Galaxy S10, and over 2 and a half charges for iPad mini 5.
  • Wide Compatibility: Charge virtually any mobile device including phones, tablets, and more.
  • What You Get: Anker 525 Power Bank (PowerCore 20K), USB-A to USB-C cable, USB-C to USB-C cable, travel pouch, welcome guide, and our worry-free 18-month warranty.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
