Pokemon Go Portable Chargers Number 1: T-Queen Second Generation Pokemon Go Portable Charger 12000mAh

This is easily our favorite Pokemon Go portable charger out of the whole bunch. The attention to detail is fantastic, this really does look like the real deal. And at 12000 mAh it is the most powerful power bank in this comparison. As a guide, that should charge an iPhone 6 roughly 4.3 times. Not sure what your phone’s mAh capacity it? Check this handy graphic showing the mAh capacity of the most popular cell phones and tablets.

Another big plus for this Pokemon Go portable charger is the fact it comes with dual USB output ports. Rated at 5V 1A and 5V 2.1A respectively, we’re confident this will charge your cell phone or tablet quicker than the other four contenders. Not to mention the convenience of being able to charge two devices at once!

Pokemon Go Portable Chargers Number 2: PhoenixGor® Pokemon Go Portable Charger 10000mah

Out of all of the Pokemon Go portable chargers, this is not the most powerful or feature-packed in this list. It is also the most expensive unit on offer. So why does it rank number two on our list you ask? Put simply, we LOVE the design of this purple and pink Master Ball! The Master Ball is one of the rarest of all Poké Ball variants and this is the only Master Ball Pokemon Go portable charger we’ve been able to find. So that alone gives it some extra cool factor.

One thing we should mention in regards to this portable charger, is the manufacturer does not specify whether it comes with a micro USB to USB cable.

Pokemon Go Portable Chargers Number 3: Pokeball Pokemon Go portable charger 10000 mAh

Just like our number 1 ranked unit this Pokemon Go portable charger looks great. All the little details are just right, it looks like a legit Poké Ball! At 10000 mAh this power bank is going to provide you with plenty of juice to keep your cell phone running. And it has the massive advantage of sporting dual USB output ports. We should point out that their charge speeds differ however – 5V 1A and 5V 2A. The second port should charge your cell phone very quickly indeed.

Four LED lights arranged around the main button on the power bank indicate its charge level. The unit comes with a micro USB to USB cable, a handy keychain plus a one year warranty!

Pokemon Go Portable Chargers Number 4: DBigness Pokemon Go portable charger 10000 mAh

It could be a personal preference thing, but we don’t love the look of this Pokemon Go portable charger quite as much as the other choices we’ve found for you. The unit has four curved slots recessed around the edges of its body, which means it doesn’t look quite so slick. But the really cool thing about this power bank is that the whole unit lights up at the press of a button, turning this into a Poké Ball / night light! As you can see from the photos it creates quite a cool effect.

We should point out that its an optional feature – which we’re thankful for. It would certainly drain its batteries if whenever the power bank is switched on it is lit up like a Christmas tree! Simply press the power button once to activate the power bank, and press it twice to turn on the light. A 12 month warranty is also reassuring. Very cool.

Pokemon Go Portable Chargers Number 5: Pokemon Go portable charger 6000 mAh

At 6000 mAh this Pokemon Go portable charger is the least powerful unit on offer here. But the good news is that its significantly cheaper than any of the other 4 power banks. It should charge an iPhone 6 about 2 and a half times. So that’s still plenty of extra juice for a day’s solid Poke-hunting!

Just like our number four choice, this Pokemon Go portable charger has a bright light which can transform your Pokemon Go portable charger into a shining bright beacon of light. We know a lot of you have been going out playing Pokemon Go at night, so this could actually be a really handy feature. Plus its also bound to make your friends green with envy!

Unlike the other red/white/black Pokemon Go portable chargers this one has a silver, metallic-looking finish (in place of white). Its also nice to see that this power bank comes with a 12 month warranty.
