Find the best portable battery pack for your iPhone

A portable power bank is the best way to ensure your iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, or any of the other best iPhones keeps going until the end of the day. There's nothing worse than being caught in a precarious position with low battery. Luckily, there are many portable battery pack options to choose from, so you always have backup power on hand. 

We love the Zendure 10000mAh Mini Portable Battery Pack for its versatility with both USB-C and USB-A ports, compact credit card size, and big 20W power delivery. It comes in a large assortment of colors so you can really personalize this iPhone accessory. 

The VimPower Portable Charger 22000mAh PD 3.0 Power Bank is a good pick if you just want something powerful and fairly inexpensive that you can toss in your tech bag when you're on the go. It packs so much power that it can quickly charge just about any portable device, including a MacBook Pro. It'll charge your iPhone several times over. You can even charge several items at once. Just be sure to bring your charging cables.

Looking for something smaller? Technology has come a long way with the card-sized TravelCard 1500mAh. This portable power bank is impressive when you struggle for space and just need a little bit of an extra power boost. You can literally just toss it into your wallet and go. No need to bring cables, since they are built right in.

If you have an iPhone 12 or newer, you can take advantage of MagSafe charging with Apple's compact MagSafe Battery and leave the cables at home. The Apple MagSafe Battery is a nice compromise between power and portability. It's compact and super easy to use — no cables needed. Just pop it onto the back of your iPhone and go. If you don't have an iPhone with MagSafe capability but you do have wireless charging (iPhone 8 or newer), you can still use this charger, it just won't stick to the back.

Whether you're looking for something that's capable of charging both your iPhone and your MacBook, need versatility in your ports, or want a great MagSafe option, these are the best portable battery packs for iPhone.
