The best external battery packs for the Google Pixel


The OG Google Pixel is two years old, meaning you’re probably finding yourself charging it more often these days. I personally rely on the Ventev PowerCell 6010+ which I gave top marks in my full review, but I’d also recommend Anker’s incredible PowerCore+ 26800 PD for someone who’s willing and able to spend more than $100 on a reliable battery pack that you’ll use for years to come.

It’s all built in

Ventev PowerCell 6010+

This power pack from Ventev is the real deal, featuring a built-in USB-C cable, folding AC prongs, and the ability to charge two devices at once using the USB-A port. Recharges in just 4 hours plugged directly into the wall, and can also be used as a wall charger for your Pixel in a pinch.

Multiple ports

AUKEY 20,000mAh Portable Charger

AUKEY’s 20,000mAh battery pack has the kitchen sink. It features a USB-C port for charging your Pixel, along with a Lightning port for Apple devices, and three USB-A ports. It’s also super thin and portable, and great for sharing your portable power with friends.

More power

RAVPower 26,800mAh external battery

RAVPower includes a USB-C cable with its massive 26,800mAh battery pack. And when you deplete it, you can use two cables to double-charge it in nearly half the time. For charging your Pixel, you’ll want to use the USB-C port along with the included USB-C cable, but you also have two standard USB-A ports for charging other devices.

Top performer

Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD battery pack

Anker is one of the most trusted brands of external battery packs, and its PowerCore+ 26800 is an absolute beast. With 26,800mAh of battery capacity, you’ll be able to get multiple charges out of this battery pack. It comes with a 30W fast charging USB-C wall charger for topping up the battery pack, multiple charging cables, and a travel pouch.

$130 at Amazon

Keep your Pixel charged with one of these battery packs. Of these options, how can you not love Ventev PowerCell 6010+? Unless your phone usage demands the biggest capacity battery pack you can find, you’ll love the built-in charging cable and folding AC prongs.
