In this second part, we are going to explore some additional charging options.  If you liked the products that we reviewed in the first part, you are going to like these ones as well.  What’s great about these is that they are mostly reasonably priced.  Some do tend to get a bit pricier, but I think they’re worth the money.

Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 combines with Anker’s proprietary PowerIQ and VoltageBoost to deliver the fastest possible charge to almost any USB device. Hard-wearing matte finish, high-gloss detailing, light-blue LED, and cool-blue USB ports combine to make this a truly premium charger.  5 ports pump out 63W of power—enough for the whole family to simultaneously charge multiple devices at the highest speed possible. Available on Amazon for $35.99.


Aukey QC 3.0 (30000 mAh USB)

The Quick Charge 3.0 is able to charge devices up to 4 times faster than conventional charging. It uses AiPower adaptively charges all 5V USB powered devices including Android and Apple devices at up to 2.4A Recharge your power bank using either a Lightning cable or micro USB cable.  This one is currently unavailable on Amazon, but like I said in my previous post – make sure you put this one on your wishlist.

This backpack has a rechargeable 7000mAh removable battery. Most mobile devices can be recharged with this built-in battery system. It is adaptable for either Micro-USB or Apple products with a USB 2.0 Port. It is ideal for Smartphones, Tablets or eReaders. Separate USB 2.0 Cables are necessary to charge tablets via the NRG back pack’s USB port.  This one is definitely worth the $79.95 on Amazon.

Charlemain 2-in-1

With this cable, you can charge and sync at high speeds.  It has premium copper wires which promote signal quality and strength to deliver fast-speed data and high power output.  It’s rather short in length, which isn’t good for me, but it does mean you can take it anywhere you go. What’s neat about this charging cable is that you can swap the ends, to suit your needs – Lightning or Micro USB.  This one is very reasonably priced, you can get it for $9.49 on Amazon.
