Best USB-C battery packs and power banks for the iPad Pro (2018)

The new iPad Pros charge via USB-C and ship with a USB-C to USB-C cord. The power bank or battery pack you've used to charge your previous iPads aren't going to work for your new iPad Pro if they don't have a USB-C port. You'll need a battery that's both powerful enough for an iPad Pro and has a USB-C port. If you already own a power bank for your USB-C enabled MacBook (or MacBook Pro), you're all set. If it charges a MacBook, it'll charge your new iPad Pro as well. Here are some of the best USB-C compatible battery packs and power banks.

You can't go wrong with any of these, but my personal recommendation would be the Anker PowerCore+ Portable Charger Bundle (opens in new tab). I like that it comes with a wall charger. After all, the battery needs charging too.
