Which one you should choose really depends on your needs. Each model iPhone requires a different amount of power to get a full charge, so choose accordingly. The best all-around charger with a good amount of juice, decent size, and fair price point is the Anker PowerCore 13000.

If you just want something inexpensive and ultra-portable, go for the Anker PowerCore 5000. While it doesn't pack as much power as some of the others, it's easy on the eye, easy on the wallet and easy to take anywhere. On the other hand, if you need a lot of juice, the absolute unit PowerCore+ 26800 will do the trick. It will charge three devices at once, including a MacBook, with its two USB ports and one USB-C port.
