When it comes to power banks, the smaller the better, so it’s hard to beat Aukey’s PB-N83, one of the smallest 10,000-mAh models we’ve ever seen. It’s a little over an inch thick, but fits comfortably on a credit card. Combine that with the fact that it has dual charging ports — an 18-watt Power Delivery USB-C connection and a Quick Charge 3.0 USB-A port, and you have a formidable charger. Regularly priced at $21, right now you can get the Aukey PB-N83 power bank for as little as $16 using the coupon on the product page. It’s not the lowest price ever, but it’s close — within about a buck.
The black model is the better deal. Priced at $21 and featuring a 23% discount, you can nab it for $16. If white is more your jam, it’s regularly priced at $20 and has a 15% discount, which adds up to $17. Personally, I think the black model looks better, and it’s cheaper to boot.
There’s just one catch here: It doesn’t come with a wall plug, so you’ll need to supply that yourself. That said, if you’re anything like me you already have a junk drawer full of USB wall plugs, so this is no great disappointment.
The Power Delivery and QC3 ports mean this is a power bank designed for modern devices — whether you want to charge an iPhone 12, Galaxy S21 or iPad, this power bank can deliver the juice for your gadgets‘ fast-charging modes. And it’s small enough for your pocket.
