I feel like I'm posting about USB too much here, but people keep asking because it's easy to get confused about it. I just copied the table I made a while ago in a comment and added FAQs and notes for outside the US.

I hope this answers what people are really looking for better than the other threads.

Do you have some specific need I didn't answer? Have a USB-C charger you're curious about that isn't listed? Ask in a comment. Just keep in mind that (other than the iPad one) USB-A chargers won't give you good speeds. This includes the chargers bundled with even the most recent phones by Samsung, Apple, Sony, LG, and HTC.

I'll use this comment to note some USB-C chargers I'm aware of but don't recommend:

---------

Charging speeds vary


These chargers can give the Switch great speeds sometimes, but usually they're closer to just "okay". It seems to be random every time you plug it in. If the Switch is completely turned off (not just in sleep) when you plug it in, you'll almost always get those "great" speeds for as long as you keep it plugged in even after turning the Switch back on and playing. This happens because Nintendo's implementation of USB Power Delivery (USB PD) is very buggy. They're a hassle to use right for now, so I don't recommend them, especially since there are better alternatives now.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
--|--|--|--
Anker PowerPort+ 5|$39.99|Amazon|Use the USB-C port. It also offers 4 USB-A ports. No USB cables included.
RAVPower 26800mAh USB-PD battery|$79.99|Amazon|
UGREEN 30W USB-PD charger|$17.99|Amazon|No cable included.

----------

Safety issues


These don't damage the Switch, but they can damage other USB-C cables and devices, especially if you plug them in to something that doesn't make sense, like another charger. If you know how to use them right and you're careful, you won't damage anything, but why risk it? Get something else.

Charger|Link|Notes
--|--|--
CHOETECH USB C 15W charger|Amazon|
Anker PowerPort+ 1 USB-C QC3.0|Amazon|Any USB-C port that offers QC3.0 has known issues

----------

Great but expensive


If you have a USB-C laptop, feel free to get one of these, but otherwise don't bother. Plenty of chargers in my OP work just as well with Switch and are much cheaper.

Charger|Price (USD)|Link|Notes
--|--|--|--
Google 60W USB-C charger|$59.99|Google|Bundled with Chromebook Pixel 2, great for laptops, very long 12ft cable
Apple 61W USB-C charger|$69|Amazon, Apple|Bundled with 2016 13" MacBook Pro, no cable included when bought on its own. The 15-inch model's 87W charger is probably great too.
Apple 29W USB-C charger|$49|Amazon, Apple|Bundled with non-Pro MacBooks, no cable included when bought on its own. Poor speeds with most other non-Apple devices.
Innergie 45W USB-C charger|$59.99|Amazon|Works with the dock, great with laptops and phones too.

---------

Unconfirmed speeds (and expensive)


These chargers are also too expensive to recommend. They probably work great, but I haven't seen any reports of people actually trying any of them. They all probably work with the dock too. If anybody has one of these, please tell me if it works with the dock.

Any tempered glass screen protector from a reputable maker for one.

The Pro controller is one of the best feeling controllers I've ever had.

A high end battery pack if you can afford it. Should support USB-C/PD charging. I managed to snag this RAVPower battery on sale.

For Splatoon players who like split Joycon play, grips can be helpful to add comfort. I personally have Nintendo's official battery grip, provides a pretty nice girth extension.

And I guess a case, though beanies are pretty convenient to slip your console into.

Edit: Would also like to add a tablet mount for lazy bed gamers. Position it above your face, take off the Joycons, and relish in the comfort while feeling like you're in Wall-E.

u/somesinwong · 21 pointsr/gadgets

There's this one I've been eyeballing on amazon. PD USB Type C Portable Charger RAVPower 26800mAh Power Bank (Faster Recharged in 4.5 Hours with USB-C Input; 30W USB C Output; 30W Type-C AC Charger; Dual iSmart 2.0 USB Ports) For Phones, Macbook 12" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_piCSybSGY8CBH

u/link270 · 21 pointsr/gadgets

I got this little guy first:

AUKEY 20000mAh Portable Charger with Lightning and Micro-USB Input, 3.4A Dual USB Output for iPhone 7/7 Plus, Samsung and More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0176HQ1O8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_FZjuzb5QYEJSG

It’s a fantastic pack for a decent price, plus it has a lightning input, which is cool if you use iOS devices. It’ll charge the switch, but it’s slow and it won’t charge while you play.

USB C Portable Charger RAVPower 20100 Power Bank QC 3.0 Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 20100mAh Input & Output Type C Battery Pack for Macbook, Nexus 6, iPhone and More https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019IFIJW8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_f2juzbKCCPR9X

This is the second one I got. It’s been fantastic! It’ll charge great during play as long as you use the usb c output. As for cables, I just got a usb C to usb C cable from Anker, they do great cables, try to get a gen 1 or gen 2 usb C too. (There’s different speeds and power capabilities on usb c cables, it’s a little confusing. )

USB C Power Bank RAVPower 26800 PD Portable Charger 26800mAh(Faster Recharged in 4.5 Hours &USB-C Input, 30W Type-C Output)for Nintendo Switch, USB Type-C Laptops, 2016 MacBook Power Delivery Support https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_V3juzbF757DZQ

I also noticed his guy, which HAS PD so it’d be even faster. There are also the power core+ from Anker with PD, but they are a little more expensive from what I saw right now.

u/deltablue802 · 18 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have this power bank, AMA.


Output:
USB A --> "5V/3.1A Total (Each 2.4A Max)" -----> I'm not sure what this means exactly
USB C --> 5V/3A Max ---------------------------------- > 15W max, which is pretty good (Apple fast charge uses 18W)

Bonus: a MicroUSB to USB A cable is included.


The battery pack can be recharged through three different ways:

  1. MicroUSB [slowest]
  2. USB C [faster]
  3. MicroUSB + USB C (simultaneously) [fastest, but the battery heats up slightly & this may degrade its lifespan]

    Battery Life indicator:
    4 dots = charge level between 100% & 75%
    3 dots = charge level between 75% & 50%
    (etc.)

    ​

    Heads up! There is a variant of this power bank (<----link) where the USB C port is actually USB-PD [30W Max Draw] (the one listed above is a plain USB C port [15W Max Draw]) making it better suited for intensive power draw, such as gaming with the Nintendo Switch. [It has the same capacity, just a slightly different design.]

    It also currently has a 30% discount which leads to a final price of 53.19 + tax (Thanks to u/bbaarrr for point it out)
u/WarpedFlayme · 10 pointsr/Games

You know, I'd swear I've seen at least one before that supports USB PD 2.0 (variable voltage and amperage for higher overall power levels (watts)) but now that I'm looking I can't find any. Maybe I'm wrong. Either way, any good battery pack that has a Type C port will be able to put out 15W (5V x 3A).

That's the comment I was about to post but as I was search for example Type C batteries to list, I found one that supports USB PD!

Here you go! RAVPower 30W 26,800mAh battery
Capable of 15W, 18W, and 30W output (and input) over Type C (with compatible device/charger) generated at 5V/3A, 9V/2A, and 15V/2A or 20V/1.5A, respectively (VxA=W).

If you're looking for just a Type C battery that doesn't support USB PD, there are plenty from good brands like Anker, Aukey, and Tronsmart that support the standard 15W (5V/3A) charging. Just look on Amazon.

Edit:
Found another, though it is apparently no longer available. Like I said, limited market right now.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

That's the one I got but it was $20 cheaper than it is now. Watch r/nintendoswitchdeals and pay attention to the comments. There's a guy that rates all battery packs and compares them. So far it's great. Charges it fast.

u/emailrob · 8 pointsr/GooglePixel

I have this one (well, the slightly older model) and it's been great so far. Works on my Switch without killing it.

u/breezytrees · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

I went with the pro gaming elite bundle and it's a game changer.

I also bought this ravpower 26800 powerbank which the case was specifically made to fit and it fits like a glove.

It can also fit a spare set of joycons (complete with the bumpers attached), an 8bit sn30pro, this portable dock, and this small charger, complete with all cables required except the hdmi cable.

Full disclosure, that dock and compact charger works with latest switch firmware, but the dock has died once already and was replaced under warranty by the manufacturer. If I were to do it again I'd probably switch to the bionic all in one dock that includes charger, hdmi cable, and everything.

Edit: Bonus: I also attached a pro controller to the unit via this molded controller case attached to the satisfy case via the provided carabiner - or I would if this particular part of my setup wasn’t stolen.

u/ConLawHero · 6 pointsr/GooglePixel

This one does 5V/3A,9V/2A,15V/2A,20V/1.5A from the USB C port.

Though, FYI, Benson and Nathan K gave the charger it comes with a bad rating, but rated the battery itself very well. So, what I did is bought a separate USB C (Benson approved) wall wart. Problem solved.

Not the cheapest solution ever, but I think it'll be a year or so, at least, before we start seeing USB C devices at microUSB prices.

u/Gerolux · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Link to the battery they mentioned part way through(about one that has enough rating)

https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Charger-RAVPower-26800mAh-Recharged/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1488246783&sr=8-3&keywords=RAVPower+usb-c+portable+battery

the USB-C port(which requires you to purchase a double ended USB-C Cable) outputs 30W(15V2A), which should be enough to use the switch and slowly charge it while playing.

u/Valence55 · 5 pointsr/furry

i'm going to use one of these things (i might have to buy another one if one won't last me a day at the con) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LRQDAEI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I considered making my own battery pack out of lithium cells but i decided i'd rather have something with a low chance of exploding

u/nuke_twidget · 5 pointsr/GooglePixel

I purchased the RAVPower 26800 PD and the [Anker Type-C 30W Charger] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y427WT7/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) to go along with it. It's supposed to be delivered today, so I'll let you know how it goes. I'm going to be on the road for the better part of a month and wanted something that would not only charge my Pixel, but my wife's phone and our camera as well.

u/jsight · 5 pointsr/chromeos

You need to find one that supports the USBC power delivery spec.

This one claims to: USB C Power Bank RAVPower 26800 PD Portable Charger 26800mAh(Faster Recharged in 4.5 Hours &USB-C Input, 30W Type-C Output)for Nintendo Switch, USB Type-C Laptops, 2016 MacBook Power Delivery Support https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_U2AYzbYXZR6JW

u/sylocheed · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Yup! So USB-PD is a "protocol" for higher power transmission, which uses the USB-C connector and cable, so the important thing is that the first step to confirming USB-PD is making sure it has a USB-C connector. AFAIK, USB deprecated USB-PD over any connector other than USB-C for clarity.

Anyway, the point is, yes, you should look for "USB-PD", "USB Power Delivery", or "Power Delivery" on the description or packaging. And then for the Switch, make sure it supports 9V, 12V, or 15V

Examples:

Thanks for a couple of tidbits I was unaware of.

You got me on Vic's. I already have a reservation for Wed. We have joked for the last 2 years that the drinks were better and Thursday was just getting crazy.

And just curious. I think I have seen the quest giver floating around. Never stopped them. Are they the ones with the question mark over head, RPG style?

Just to add to the cell phone charger or portable charger, I carry a RavPower 26800mAh - Amazon Link. RavPower has been super reliable for me. Had this one for 2 years and it still charges like a beast. At a minimum, I would recommend one with quick charging (they use Qualcomm's chip for it). And if I remember correctly, their battery cells are actually Samsung. The Samsung cells haven't had the issues some other manufacturers have.

u/dragonx254 · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/andyooo · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

If you're willing to wait you can get that one on Amazon at a considerable discount, I've seen it several times. I got it for $56.93 last November 30th (the week of Cyber Monday so keep an eye for it in the next few days).

mot much larger than the iPhone X. I get these when they go on sale (50% off about once a month) as we use them as battery extenders on our cameras when shooting on locations with no power. It is also enough to run a Mac Book or other PC with USBC power. Our Osmo+ camera will run close to 8 hours on this battery.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LRQDAEI

u/TemptedTemplar · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

the go to device appears to be this ravpower 26800 mAh battery pack.

A large capacity (~18 to 24 hours of zelda) along with power delivery, which will keep the battery charged even while playing games on the go.

If $80 is too steep, then just remember that mAh is your capacity, the switch has a 4380 mAh battery and provides roughly 3 hours of zelda on the go.

Power delivery is different from quick charge, providing more power over USB type A/C than normal ports; while not risking potential damage to the switch itself like quick charge.

u/Southrncomfortjm · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Get a large one that is USB-C to USB-C with power delivery for best charging.

I don't know what's available in the UK, but I got a

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01N0I1W2T/ref=yo_ii_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/FLOCKA · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You need a powerbank with Power Delivery. Using a USB-C to USB-C cable, a compatible power bank can provide roughly the same amount as the wall charger (!)

Unfortunately, there are only a couple power banks currently on the market that are capable of this and they are pricier than your run of the mill powerbanks. I have this Ravpower bank but Anker also makes one of their own

They're expensive, but they can actually charge your switch while you're playing games. Not to mention that the capacity is much greater, so you could easily get 10-12 hours of play between the switch's own battery and using the battery bank.

Well for example this one which I recommend:

HAs 2 regular USB ports and a USB-C port so you could charge both systems at the same time (assuming you have the cable for the 2DS)

This charger still has the promotion on it so it's only $64 as well which is a great price for a charger that size

Not sure why you would necessarily need so many ports. When I travel I carry this RAVpower battery and a multi-USB converter. Currently I carry my MacBook Pro USB-C charger to charge the battery/laptop (I hardly use the battery for laptop power), and have funded this Kickstarter with the hopes of replacing that as well. I suppose my laptop is a svelte 13" rMBP and if I had something beefier this configuration would leave me wanting

u/sendblink23 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Get the RavPower 26,800mAh especially for the PD type C, the one you linked. If you got a Google 18w Type C wall charger like the Google Pixel XL uses it can recharge it fully in 4.5 hours which is extremely fast compared to normally 12-14 hours. I own both and it works perfectly, still charges fast while Zelda full brightness.

u/nt4cats-reddit · 3 pointsr/PixelBook

/u/StillMind2010 's link didn't work for me, but here is the link for probably the same product from my Amazon purchase history.

Here is what to look for: It has to support USB PD. It has to have a high output wattage (30W is good, the wall charger that comes with the Pixelbook is 45W). Multiply the Volts x Amps to get the Watts -- this battery will do 15V at 2A or 20V at 1.5A.

A little on the expensive side. However, it's a solid battery. I like that it's usb-c in & out in addition to the standard usb. I use my macbook charger to charge it via USB-C and it charges in about 4.5-5 hours flat. :)

It charges while playing.

I've used Anker and RAVPower battery packs in the past and have been very satisfied. Mophie products tend to be expensive but are excellent quality and highly reliable.

With an iPhone X, I would recommend you look into a battery pack that has a USB-C port that supports USB-PD (aka 'Power Delivery', the fast charging technology that Apple uses for iPhones) and able to output at least 30W from that specific port and an USB-C to Lightning cable for the absolute fastest recharges while in the park.

Some USB-C Power Delivery recommendations:
RAVPower 26800 PD Portable Charger
Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 PD
Mophie Powerstation XXL

You might also want to look into battery packs with an AC outlet. That way, you can use a fast charging wall wart you already have and can use elsewhere for fast charging:

Mophie Powerstation AC

u/Lorben · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

How much do you want to spend on a battery and how long do you need it to last?

I have a Ravpower 10000 PD battery and I'm pretty happy with it. A 10000mAh battery will give you an additional 5 hours of playtime on an original Switch.

The largest battery you would be allowed to take on a plane is a 26800mAh battery. That will give you an additional 12 hours of playtime.

Technically TSA requires the battery to be under 100 watt hours, not under 26800mAh. Usually it's going to be 26800mAh. One of the nice thing about RAVpower is that they label their power banks with their watt hours which makes it much easier to get through security. If they question the battery you can just point at the watt hours. The 26800mAh battery is labeled as 26800mAh/99.16Wh.

Aukey and Anker also make good batteries. Anker is considered the top tier.

Couple other things to note

  • You are only allowed one battery bank, and that battery has to be stored in your carry on baggage. So it's just the one battery bank for the whole trip.

  • Whatever battery you get it either needs to charge at 5v3a or have USB C power delivery at 5v3a\9v2a or above. Anything slower than 5v3a and the Switch will use power faster than the battery is providing it. It'll still extend your playtime because it's replacing used power, but you won't maintain or gain charge.

  • USB cables should be USB-IF certified. If using a USB A (rectangle end) to USB C (oval end) it should have a 56k ohm resister in it. The cable that comes with the Pro Controller fits this, and so do Amazon Basics cables.

Get the RavPower 26800 PD it can charge the Switch and just about any other USB powered device you have.

>what can I expect in term of battery life ? More 2 or 4 hours ?

Depends completely on your usage. Heavy usage will probably get around 2-4 hours.

Don't expect the battery to last all day with 3 VMs running and other stuff.

I just want to say... I have this RAVPower one and it's held up after many uses. I think it's worth the asking price, even without a sale. But since it's on sale, it's even better. :)

u/TheFlandy · 2 pointsr/u_satisfye

Alright so I just ended up backing for the $45 tier :) What really pushed me over the edge was that it appears that the case has room for the exact same power bank I use :P It's this one I right? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LRQDAEI/ But seriously you guys thought of everything.

Anyway, quick question about the thumb pads. You don't actually mention them anywhere in the indiegogo apart from the rewards section. Your answer will obviously be biased but what do you think of playing with them versus without them? I've never purchased thumbpads for any console I've owned so it'll be a new thing for me

Also, what differences are there with the Indiegogo case vs your existing one on amazon? Obviously this one was built with the grip in mind but is there anything else?

I assume the USB 3 cable is also safe to use? Seems that a lot of USB 3 cables on amazon don't actually meet the specifications of the standard so I've been afraid to get any USB cables that aren't made by Nintendo. It's not gonna brick my Switch like some of those 3rd party docks is it?

u/puppyyawn · 2 pointsr/chromeos

Depending on how you want to spend your money, you could get double bang for your buck if you bought a battery bank. I have this one and it charges faster than the OEM charger that was included with the 302. B&H has it also and could be a little cheaper there.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LRQDAEI/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/irishtexmex · 2 pointsr/PixelBook

I LOVE them.

I remember one particular instance where I was finding some soft classical music to play in the background while I worked. Except that I had left the volume too high (from jamming out to them earlier), and instead of getting to work I closed my eyes. The beautiful clarity and staging that came crashing through completely took me, and I realized after about 10 minutes that I had been sitting there, eyes closed, completely fixed on a concerto. It was delightful.

HOWEVER, I'd bet dollars to donuts that the Sony's are more comfortable. I think it just depends on your priorities. What sold me on the PX's was:

  1. Beauty - I was hesitant about the blue/gold combination when I ordered them, but hugely relieved when I opened them up. They are gorgeous.
  2. Durability - I think both the Bose & Sony's are too plastic-ky for how much they cost. The build quality of the PX's feels fantastic. Plus I was sold when I watched 1:48-2:20 of this YouTube video. They might not fold up as compact as the Sony's or Bose, but try doing that to either one of them.
  3. USB-C - This was more important to me than it it is to probably 99% of the rest of the world (/r/Pixelbook excluded?). I have one charger in my backpack that charges my laptop (Pixelbook), phone (Pixel 2 XL), and headphones (B&W PX). Not only does it charge over USB-C, but it can do audio over both USB-C and 3.5 mm. Super convenient.
u/joikansai · 2 pointsr/razer

There’s a lot like this that could charge the stealth but I didn’t get it because first it seems slower, too big for my portability, mostly made from plastic, I’m afraid that could harm the stealth and in otherside Razer PB is built already for stealth. I think dell or ibm have also their original PB for notebook that also costs over 100 bucks when I’m not wrong.

u/Ltjenkins · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

HTC mentioned on their forums that they will be selling the first party batteries separately without the kit, but no ETA on when. I don't find that it lasts long enough for my tastes, but having two or three couldn't hurt.

u/Digimon_Shiny · 2 pointsr/nintendo

$70 (and that's the discount price for people who pledge, retail will be over $100) for a 12,000 mAh battery that hasn't been tested by anyone outside of the developers? No thanks. I'm currently considering this battery which costs about the same as the early adopter price of this one, but has over twice the charging capacity at 26800 mAh and is recommended at /r/nintendoswitch. According to users of it, it charges the Switch just as fast as the official Nintendo USB-C wall adapter, and we don't know if this 'SwitchCharge' will even charge the Switch faster than the battery drains while playing Zelda.

u/onomeister · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This one is highly recommended for the Switch:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LRQDAEI/

It's USB-PD (Power Delivery), it'll charge while playing. If you want negative reviews, just scroll down on the Amazon page and read some.

u/jdcox215 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I'm not sure why this is happening. I have this charger (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LRQDAEI) that I bought specifically so I could charge while I play. I plugged it in while the Switch was off and it showed charging for a brief second, and when it booted it up, no charging symbol. I pressed the button on the battery pack as is said, and that didn't change anything....

The crazy thing is, it's actually charging....just no indication.. Bug?

u/djthegeek · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I THINK this one may be safe:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LRQDAEI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It says it has the RavPower ismart but appears to only use it on the USB-A ports while leaving the USB-C port to PD with 30w 15v/2a.

It's even advertised as iSmart2.0+Type-C with the features set:

iSmart 2.0 Two USB output + 30W PD Type-C Port

Does that seem correct?

u/waffledork · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The 30W RAVPower one I suggested has PD capabilities and so does this other RAVPower 26800 one, it seems. Actually - this is only a couple bucks more than the one I listed and it's a larger power source....maybe I'll test this one too...

Again, I'm not sure how well they'll work but good luck!

I have heard, by the way, that you shouldn't use your Pixel charger or cable with other USB-C devices. Just an FYI. You can use thr cable to charge your Pixel, even from a powerbank, but don't use that cable for your Switch.

u/scubastevegk · 2 pointsr/Surface

u/Dash383 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I've been looking around for a good portable power bank for my Switch and I've seen a couple of reddit posts about them but I still have a couple of questions that I hope someone can help answer.

I'm stuck between 2 chargers:

Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD https://www.amazon.com/Anker-PowerCore-Portable-Nintendo-Delivery/dp/B01MZ61PRW/ref=sr_1_7?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1505591552&sr=1-7&keywords=Anker+PowerCore%2B#Ask

RAVPower 26800 PD https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=psdc_7073960011_t4_B01IVONCAG

What I don't understand is the $30 price difference though it looks like they come with the same "stuff" so why would you pay the extra amount to get the Anker?

Does anyone have either (or both) of these chargers to help determine which would be the best for the Switch specifically?

Is there anything worth buying one over the other?

You're going to want a USB PD compatible portable charger along with a USB C to C cable. RAVPower has a good one that basically can charge your switch well no matter how you're using it.

I ordered the first link on accident but I meant to get the item in the second link.
I've had to do an overnight on it, so I'll have it in time for the weekend.
I have a Pixel phone, and will eventually get a switch, and the 2nd item is reported as very good for both. They both have 3 power outs so they can really power a lot at once!

Presumably it would be this one, as it's 26800mAh and has power delivery, but I only see a 5% discount. Maybe the coupon option is when it's in your basket or something and you're ready to buy it.

u/tek_thetech_tap · 2 pointsr/Surface

Nah, I don't think so. Looking at the specs of that power bank, the Type-C port only delivers 5V/2.4A (with no mention of USB PD specs), which will not charge SP 2017 effectively even if you use the Surface Connect to Type-C adapter. What you need to look for, is a power bank that supports (at least) USB-C PD 3.0 such as this.

u/sdwashu · 2 pointsr/chromeos

u/AdamManHello · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

One that supports USB-C power delivery will give you the best results, but TBH if you want to save some money, USB C to C battery packs that don't support power delivery will work well too, it just won't charge quite as fast. You'll still be able to play games like BOTW while charging the battery.

For example, this is a power delivery battery.. Currently around $75. This is an external battery that will provide USC C to C charging at 3A but does not support PD. Currently at $50.

So it's up to you whether or not the $25 is worth it. I have the 2nd, non PD, battery pack here, and used the USB C port on 2 separate 5 hour flights, playing BOTW during the majority of both flights (minus 1 or 2 quick naps). It worked perfectly the whole time.

So it's up to you. You might want the faster charging, but you also may want to save $25.

EDIT: Worth noting that the $75 charger here comes with a C to C cable. That usually costs around $8 - 10 separately. That may make the purchase worthwhile for you.

u/Autumn_Shroud · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I opted for this Ravpower 26800 power bank. It keeps the Switch at 100% while playing BotW in table top or handheld mode with the brightness slider all the way up and a Note 4 charging from one of the iSmart ports. A full, overnight charge keeps it powering the Switch for a long time. I would say at least 8-10 hours until the last light on the power bank starts blinking. Even then, I am sure it would last another hour or so. I haven't pushed it that far.

It's not inexpensive, but it's a beast of a PD power bank that just works really well.

I have used this RavPower block and it's a really good block. it's pretty pricy, sure, but it charges multiple devices before running out and is rugged af. it has a USB-C port that can be used with the stock Apple cable (but I recommend something sturdier like the suggested)

u/Shikimazu · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I had the version before and eying this updated RavPower one. Has USB-C PD so it works for a Switch like it's on the dock or charges USB C laptops. It's bulky, but I throw it in my everyday backpack, so it's not a huge deal to me. There was a promo saving you some money on it, but Idk if it's still available since it doesn't show me it on mobile.

u/The_Back_Burner · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitchDeals

I know I'm late to the thread but I just want to thank you for setting all this information up. Website's amazing and easy to digest.

I watched a Digital Foundry video on Power Banks for the Switch, and with dead hyperlinks ended up buying this RAVPower 26800, not realizing that there are different models with the same name (and not knowing to look out for certain abbreviations nor what they mean).

Luckily I ran into this thread on a sub I don't browse and was able to return it not realizing the Switch has a USB-C port (and that A-to-C is suboptimal). I was able to get an upgrade (funnily enough not the "upgrade available" model on the first item's page) with minimal turnaround and cost.

I don't have a Switch yet, as I'm getting all my accessories first like microSD cards and cases. But I would have been really bummed to find out how subpar my original power bank would have been while playing on the go for the first time, and your easy-to-use site prevented that.

Thanks again.

But since the Anker's power adapter won't power the Switch in docked/TV mode, and we're talking about portable here, you'll still need to buy another, better power adapter so you only have to carry one when you travel.

The comparable Ravpower is a better deal, allows passthrough charging, AND actually does come with a power adapter right now. All for $80, less than the Anker.

u/aram_taranyan · 1 pointr/spectrex360

RAVPower 30W PD powerbank doesn't charge my late 2017 Spectre x360 15 via usb-c at all. It only tells that the connected source isnt powerful enough to charge the battery. When connecting the laptop to the usb-a port of the powerbank (via usb-a to usb-c cord), it charges only when turned off (around 2A/5V, I guess). Thus, it can charge the laptop in about 8 hours, when its turned off, but it's very pity, that the powerbank cant charge the laptop when in use.

This is the most popular choice in the sub, I personally am waiting for the anker one to drop a bit in price since I'm failry loyal to the brand at this point.

Finding a good power bank with low capacity isn't something you're likely to do. For it to 100% of the time be able to charge the switch when playing it needs to have native usb c and PD not QC or other technologies similar to it.

u/wehopeuchoke · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

This isn’t a particularly crazy deal. I know Anker is considered the “trusted brand”, but RAVPower has a model with the same mAh PD, and same charging ports that currently consistently retails for $80 with deals down to $60

u/chocolateteas · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Well, I really don't know what the best is, but this one has PD (meaning it should charge at the same speed as the charger in the box) and can charge your switch ~5 times before it needs to be charged again, so I'd say it's pretty good.

USB C Power Bank RAVPower 26800mAh PD Portable Charger (Fast Recharged in 4.5 Hours, 30W Type C Output) external battery pack for Nintendo Switch, USB-C Laptops, 2016 MacBook Power Delivery Support https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_OObxCbJWJ64B0

I use the RAV power 26800 and it does a better job by discharging at a quicker rate than the lower capacities. (this allows the laptop to die/drain slower, essentially). Based on the comments in this thread, pretty much performs identically to the mophie for a fraction of the cost. https://www.amazon.com/RAVPower-Portable-26800mAh-Recharged-Nintendo/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1549484280&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=ravpower+usb+c&psc=1

Is the ravpower 26800 still a great(best?) choice for a portable battery pack to charge and play the switch simultaneously?

I need a portable charger and this is the one I am considering purchasing: USB C Power Bank RAVPower 26800mAh PD Portable Charger (Fast Recharged in 4.5 Hours, 30W Type C Output) external battery pack for Nintendo Switch, USB-C Laptops, 2016 MacBook Power Delivery Support https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_f6wACb5Q6S5RB

I was looking at this power bank that I saw on Amazon. It states that it will output at 30W from the USB-C port and also allow input from a 30W charger to charge up the pack in 4-5 hours. I'm heading to Europe next month and would like to reduce the amount of chargers/adapters I need so this may do the trick

The "best" power banks for Switch are the ones with USB C output cause its 5V 3A, that means it would charge while you are playinng. PD power banks are even better, but cost more.

The one that you linked is really good, its 5V 2.4A that would charge the Switch but slowly like 1% every 10-15 minutes.

The best you can get are these 2:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=psdc_7073960011_t2_B014ZO46LK

But they are a little pricey. Just because they are the best doesnt mean that others are bad. Anything with 5V 2.4 A USB A to C output is good, but i would recommend USB C to C output because it would actually charge your Switch. I have this one and works wonders:

u/CANTgetAbuttPREGNANT · 1 pointr/macbook

Assuming you mean the 12 inch Macbook, you want something with USB C PD for at least 30W of output. This will charge at the same rate as your macbook AC adapter. you can use this: https://www.amazon.com/Portable-RAVPower-26800mAh-Recharged-Included/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1494815923&sr=8-2&keywords=anker+usb+pd

RAVPOWER USB C power bank with PD

I use this one specifically and I've been thoroughly pleased with it, and it also fits under the power requirements for carry on if I understand correctly

u/-ftw · 1 pointr/macbook

Whatever you do make sure you get one that supports power delivery through usb c.

I have one with 2600 mAh if I remember correctly and I can get about a whole charge off it on my 15 inch MacBook. I can check what model it is when I get home. It costed me about 80 bucks but so far it’s been worth it.

Edit: I got this one from Ravpower. It's great because I can charge it with my macbook charger as well. It can charge my phone almost 10 times over

u/Silithas · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

No. It has only 5v at 2.1 amps, you need one with 15v at 2 amps through usb type C.

This one is what you need. It gives you 8 hours and 40 min extra (tested mine aswell with skyrim) (26800mah, but realistically only 16000mah due to conversion loss)

u/Roshy76 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I got this one
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LRQDAEI
But it was only 50 bucks when I bought it not 80, plus it had a 30W wall charger included. For some reason all the battery backups went up alot in price recently.

u/vipitus · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

It doesn't have USB-C Power Delivery tech, so it won't charge as fast as original AC adapter. For 20$ more (yeah, it's a lot, but worth it) you have Anker Powerbank with USB-C PD - https://www.amazon.com/RAVPower-Portable-26800mAh-Recharged-Nintendo/dp/B01LRQDAEI/
It will charge 15V 2A just like from AC adapter :)

u/Mint-Vanilla · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Good point, I did not consider the watts. My Anker PowerCore 10000 PD outputs 18W through USB-C, and it can charge my Nintendo Switch while I'm playing it. While I imagine that 30W would charge it even faster, I can say that 18W is fast enough for me.

If you really want 30W and PD, then you might consider looking into RAVPower, which has several low-cost solutions such as...

u/FlorenAgate · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Yea just make sure your power bank has Power Delivery!

I bought this power bank off amazon for my switch and its been perfect, actually charges it while playing thanks to PD capability. Without PD, it'll either hold steady or decline very slowly if max brightness/audio

Also if you do like that power bank, it's actually on sale for $25 off with a coupon code in the description.

Join us over at /r/switchalpha for tips on extending battery life and more.

The issue with USB-C chargers is that there is no one-size fits all solution for multiple devices. For example, some USB-C portable chargers will work with some devices but not others. For the Switch Alpha 12, I'm not aware of anyone who makes a compatible USB-C charger, but my guess is that the RAVPower USB-C charger should work. It receive a good safety rating from Nathan-K. However, no one has reported whether or not it's compatible with the Switch Alpha.

For portable charging, I use a Innergie 45-watt USB-C charger. It works with all my devices. Most important, though, is that it works with the Switch Alpha.

u/andysaurus_rex · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

yeah, I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/RAVPower-Portable-26800mAh-Recharged-Nintendo/dp/B01LRQDAEI/ref=sr_1_32?ie=UTF8&qid=1518448115&sr=8-32&keywords=ravpower

I like it because it has power delivery and USB-C to USB-C which means it'll charge the Switch faster, and if you have a good USB-C wall adapter, it'll charge the brick faster too.

But this one: https://www.amazon.com/Portable-Charger-RAVPower-Battery-26800mAh/dp/B012NIQG5E/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1518448103&sr=8-4&keywords=ravpower

is the same capacity without power delivery and USB-C for almost half the price. I got mine on a significant sale ($55) so it was worth it to me, but if I were buying new right now at these prices, I'd probably go for the cheap one. It won't charge the Switch as fast, but you shouldn't have any problem with it not charging fast enough while you're playing games, unless you have multiple things plugged into it at once.

u/vihu · 0 pointsr/GooglePixel

This is the only one which (I know of) has USB-PD for now. I myself am looking for a battery pack as I find myself not being completely satisfied with my Pixel battery performance :\

Would this be too bulky for you? It's a bit heavy, but I dont find it to be "big".
