Finding a good power bank is both a simple and complicated matter these days. Choices are unlimited and odds are you’ll get something that does the job, no matter what you pick. But the multitude of charging protocols, power inputs and outputs, and ports means that you’ll be a bit confused by all of it.

I’ve been meaning to upgrade from my 18W 10,000mAh Anker battery for about a year, but I kept delaying the decision until I could get a replacement that’d provide a significant upgrade. The choices I settled on? Two power banks from Baseus — a Xiaomi sister brand — that each serve a different purpose.
