10 thin external batteries

You can take a thin lightweight bank with you anywhere. On a long trip, he will charge your smartphone, tablet, MacBook and other electronics.

When choosing a bank, you need to remember that not every device is universal. For fast charging of flagship smartphones, an external battery must support the Quick Charge 3.0 standard. Powering notebooks requires something else: a Type-C connector, an output voltage of more than 12V, and a cable that is compatible with high current rates.

We already had a selection of portable batteries, in which we focused on capacity and charging speed. Almost all of them look massive and weigh a lot. Constantly wearing them in your pocket is a dubious pleasure, so this time the main criterion will be the thickness.

Below you will find a selection of portable chargers for smartphones and laptops. Their common feature is a thin case, so that they can easily fit in a jacket pocket, handbag and even a wallet. The minimum capacity of 10,000 mAh is enough to recharge the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the latest iPhone 2-3 times.

Portable chargers produce many techno-brands, but not everyone has compact and lightweight products. Our favorites in this category are Anker, Moshi and Tronsmart. Let's start with them.

On the one hand, I want to praise the manufacturer for such a minimalistic approach to the design, but on the other hand, it’s hard to blame: without indicators, it’s very difficult to track the state of charge of the battery.
