That Anker doesn't have USB-C. This one does but is $129 and outputs only 30W: [link]
Most likely it's only $300 so that the Kickstarter price ($150) looks like a steal and once it's in retail the price will be below the kickstarter price.
I just picked up this one because I needed the extra USB-C wall charger:
I also have an older version (no USB-C but same power capacity) of the one you linked and run it on a daily basis. It lasted all day through Go Fest last year. Anker makes a great charger.
The highest wattage Anker USB C PD batteries max at 30W input/output, so using a 60W charger wouldn't help with the charge speed. But not all Anker USB C PD batteries have 30W I/O.
This is one of the best options from Anker. The recharge of the battery only takes 4.5 hours.
However, the MacBook Pro is better charged from a higher wattage charger, so you may want to look at other brands.
I've had an anker for a year now and it's incredibly. Love it to death. A lot went into them if you ask me. My brother grabbed me one after he had been using one for a while.
Out of your price range, but that's okay because this one is a bit of a beast, but it's the one I have.
Those cases look pretty thick, do you have one of those? I'm looking for one to hold a very large battery charger, like this:
Looks like it's pretty thick enough to hold extra joycons so I think it would work, what are your thoughts?
At this point, your best option would be PowerCore+ 26800 PD, but even this isn’t going to charge your MBP very fast, especially the 15”. What would be better is if Anker offered a version with higher output power (say 45 or 60W). Perhaps u/Anker_US could tell you whether or not this is something we might see released in the near future.
I wouldn’t go with anything less than this. Ps it isn’t that big it’s still very portable and would fit in most laptop bags comfortably [link]
is this better than Anker 26000mah PD one for $119.99?
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 30W Power Delivery Charger, Portable Charger Bundle for iPhone X/8, Nexus 5 X 6P, LG G5 & USB Type-C Laptops (e.g. 2016 MacBook) Power Delivery Support [link]
A lot of people say this power bank: [link] is the best for the switch and will charge while playing, but the aukey one has the same wattage and has power deliver and 5v/3a, but more mah and cheaper. So I'm just kinda confused on the whole power bank situation. Are there any ones that can charge quickly and would the aukey one and the anker one that I linked charge the switch at the same speed?
Anker. Get the anker. [link]
I use that model specifically myself - even though it does not have a 12V output specification, it charges my win 2 just fine, and I'm able to stay on 100% while playing nier automata during my commute.
Thank you for your advice earlier BTW.
I am finally picking up the battery pack and plan on getting this Anker 26800+ pack. I just wanted to confirm that I should be fine (no promises, it is third party) using the provided USB-C to USB-C cable, rather than relying on a USB-A to USB-C cord to charge the device?
Expensive, but in my opinion the best out right now it even charges my thinkpad!
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 30W Power Delivery Charger, Portable Charger Bundle for iPhone X / 8, Nexus 5X 6P, LG G5 & USB Type-C Laptops (e.g. 2016 MacBook) Power Delivery Support
Ohhh, well crap. Kinda makes charging via USB pointless then for me. I figured if it can charge Macbooks, it should be the same
edit: This one looks like it charges up to 30w. Still not enough? I wish this was more clear
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 30W Power Delivery Charger, Portable Charger Bundle for Nintendo Switch & USB Type-C Laptops (e.g. 2016 MacBook) Power Delivery Support [link]
This is the one I have. You have to make sure you get the battery pack with usb C power delivery or it won’t charge your switch while playing. It will just maintain the battery level.
If its the PD one (Power Delivery) it will work but I believe that one is 30w so you might have the wrong one. The Switch uses PD to set the voltage to charge at which I think was 12v? can't remember but without PD your adapter will only charge at 5v much slower than the factory one if it works at all. If going out of town why not just take the original Switch power adapter with you?
If you're looking for a battery pack and power adapter, [link] is the best one on the market IMO and from Anker as well as on sale for a really good price, normally 110.00. If you just want the power adapter they sell it sperately as well. Good luck!
All good ideas. ~~I think USB type C doesn't charge as fast as QuickCharge 3.0 but can get pretty close. I think it's limited to around 15 watts for battery packs.~~
Edit: I am mistaken. This particular battery pack (granted, it's huge) can be charged at 27 watts. QuickCharge 3.0 is limited to 18 watts. But looks like most USB C battery packs still charge at 15 watts.
FYI, I had this one for 4 months (before it was stolen):
Anker Powercore+ 26800 PD
The difference in this one vs OP link, it charges fully in 4 hours! which is a godsend. I got 7 full charges (while playing at max brightness) with my switch. yes it is more expensive, but I think it is the best battery pack money can buy for the Switch and Phones.
This is what I got for a recent International trip. It's not cheap but it lasts forever. It'll charge your phone, tablet, switch many times over. It'll actually charge the switch while playing games that use a lot of resources like Zelda or Splatoon.
This is the one you're looking for [link]
It's expensive, but keep in mind that it does come with the USB PD wall charger with cable, which is a $30 product on its own.
But actually, it turns out that isn't the one I have. I just realized I got one that charges with micro. It was 40 bucks cheaper and I already felt iffy spending 80 bucks for a battery.
Check bensonapproved.com for some options on safe car chargers. There's also some PD compliant car chargers on Amazon if you search those terms.
For a power bank, search for Ravpower PD on Amazon or this is the one I picked up. Only complaint is that it's HUGE.

> I'm a physician and I go to conferences and workshops often.
> I enjoy photography.
The X1C or X1Y is basically designed for you, to be honest. Get the screen upgrade. Have you looked at the X1 Yoga with the OLED screen? The OLED is amazing especially re photography, and the pen can be useful for drawing stuff given your situation.
The X1C and T470S don't get that hot in general, although if you're running artificial benchmark tests, yes it will heat throttle. In other words, it will be fine for you except when you export from Lightroom.
The T470 is the "budget" machine of these three, it's aimed at a slightly lower market, with worse build quality and worse screen quality.
Battery life is slightly better on the X1C than the T470S. If you're worried about battery life, buy a USB-C battery pack: [link]
The T470 expanded battery is massive, though, and it adds a ton to the weight/size of the laptop.
If you're going to compare battery life with an extended battery, buying something like this will give an X1 Carbon 23 hour battery life.
Just a reminder that modern laptops support USB-C power delivery, so you can buy these and get much more extended battery life: [link]
The X1 Carbon is the lowest power laptop and has 15.5 hours of battery according to Lenovo, so with one of these packs you get 23.25 hours. In actual use, battery will be less.
The best option (imo): Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 27W PD Portable Charger Bundle for Nintendo Switch & USB Type-C Laptops (e.g. 2016 MacBook) Power Delivery Support [link]
I use it to charge my Chromebook Pro, Nintendo Switch, and Nexus 6P, works for each of them.
This Anker battery is better than any of those with the Switch. It costs $20 more than your first link but it comes with a wall charger that's worth more than that.
>Best you can legally carry on a airplane flight
Why? Do you have a source saying you can't carry the 26800mAh battery on an airplane? I believe 26800mAh batteries are about 99.2Wh (3.7V) and the limit is 100Wh.
you mean this one I assume?:
It does look like the total power output is equal (30W) but does not specify volts vs amps on the amazon page.
Either way, If its not still on its way to you have you attempted to try it out with the dock?
There's not much to look out for as afaik there are only 2 on the market today. I just bought the Anker one the other day. The other one looked quite similar in specs but didn't come with the ($30) USB PD charger. Definitely pricey, but I'm happy with it.
Apparently the max. output of anker external batteries is 30W
Is 30W enough to power an x1 when it is switched on? Anyone else got an Anker to work with X1?
This one from anker is not bad. It won't charge at full speed, but its at a good price and anker has quality products.
Worked for me just now. Had to actually purchase the games and then the chat rep processed a refund for me.
Got Links Awakening + Mario Kart 8 for $59.99, AND got a $10 gift card too for some reason. Not too shabby.
Edit: $10 gift card was because I chose local pickup instead of shipping.
Edit 2: I decided to get a little cheeky and buy some peripherals that are on sale, too.
This 26,800mAh powerbrick: [link]
And this portable 15" monitor: [link]
The powerbrick can power the monitor and pass through to charge the switch. Sweet.
Probably this one: Anker PowerCore+ 26800
Call the Bishop, these prices are sinful.

I found this one, same brand.
One reviewer said it charges his Samsung book. Search in the Questions & Answers section.
So then Im guessing mine wont either?
It's the Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 30W Power Delivery Charger
But this will.
It really is. I just saw the 26800 one go for 88 bucks as well so I posted that up also. Might be worth a look if you're in the market.
"What You Get: PowerCore+ 26800 PD, 30W USB-C wall charger, Micro USB cable, USB-C to USB-C cable, travel pouch, welcome guide, our worry-free 18-month warranty and friendly customer service."
Okay I'm confused what's the difference between these two products
This is the one I bought
No Power Delivery Support, which is huge.
That's the difference between the one you linked and this one.
Sorry for the late reply but thanks for the suggestion! I actually ended up splurging and got the 26800+ PD and this thing is a beast
There's a kit that includes the power bank, wall adapter, and cable. They're all power delivery. You HAVE to have that if you want it to charge the switch while in use. Or want it to charge faster than 12 hours.
There's also a smaller capacity one for less but it's OOS atm here
I know this doesn't resolve the 3ft cord problem, but being portable should help, at least. I haven't seen a 6ft usb-c 3.0 or 3.1. I don't think the 2.0 is considered power delivery. I could be wrong though.
I decided to purchase the anker one : [link] because most people say it's the best for the switch, and there's a coupon you can use on it to save 33%. I got it for 80 dollars.
I use the PowerCore+ 26800!
Glad you asked! You WILL NOT regret getting this one: "PowerCore+"-$120
Lightweight, cheap and lasts a looong time!
This is what I use. It's USB-PD and it's just small enough to be allowed on planes.
Can you fit the gpd win and a battery bank in the molle pouch you recommended? Something about this size? Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD [link]
Oh cool! Didn't know that was a thing. Just went and bought this based on your recommendation. Thank you. [link]
This one supports PD but is the old version. If you buy a new one I would prefer the newer Version. This one has less mAh but still enough and is also cabable of fast charging. I bought the new Version a few weeks ago and super happy with it.
If you go with the Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD it includes the USB C to C charger.
Link to Amazon
Hi! I have two questions.
First, what size card should I get? The SD ones I’ve seen range from 64gigs and up. How big are the games?
And two, what kind of charger do folks use on the go?
I was going to get this portable battery pack Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 30W Power Delivery Charger, Portable Charger Bundle for Nintendo Switch & USB Type-C Laptops (e.g. 2016 MacBook) Power Delivery Support [link]
But then I saw (at the local store plus on amazon) a Car Charger from Nyko made for the switch: Nyko Travel Charger EX for Nintendo Switch - Nintendo Switch; [link]
The car charger would save space, but I’ve heard In the past around launch that the switch would still run out of battery while plugged in. Obviously things have advanced since then but theirs no reviews on that Nyko.
A steal at its current price too. [link]
It really depends on how size, charging speed, and how much money you want to spend. The cream of the crop are the Anker with Power Delivery and the Ravpower with Power Delivery. Both of those are also good brands in general, so you can check out their entire line of USB C capable powerbanks and determine the best size/value for your needs.
Here is a link to the Anker
The Switch will only draw 2A so 5V bank will approximately maintain the charge level plus or minus some. That is what I do or use an inverter and OEM charger in the car.
Check out this thread for some more detailed information
Anker even has a PD powerbank.
Which would be what I would recommend over FC/QC banks.
The charger included with this is what I'd get. [link]
This Anker Battery is the one you need to get 27W output
Fair point. And yup, guess you're one of the 10,000 today regarding that fact.
It's pretty handy, actually. You can use a normal cellphone powerbank with a USB->USB-C cable to charge it or extend the battery when away from power. Or get a monster like this that supports the USB Power Delivery spec, and can charge the Switch while playing.
This looks cool for a portable battery. It only charges at 30W, but that can still be very useful.
Here is the link. If you do not see that it is Currently Unavailable then you must be looking at a different product.
If you want the best (fastest charging), you would want USB-C with PD (Power Delivery). I believe these are the only two sold on Amazon:
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 [link]
This is the best one
I have it, love it. It's kinda heavy though but charges fast.
this is the one you want. I have it and love it. [link]
Just got it a few days ago and unfortunately doesn't charge the X1C Gen 5. Pretty disappointing since they advertise 20V 1.5A!
Edit: It charges the laptop but only when it's off. Doesn't charge when it's sleeping either.
The Anker multi port that also supports 20V 1.5A does charge the laptop though.
Anker recently released a PD version of their powerbank, [link]
Looks like it supports 20V 1.5A like their multiport charger that works so if someone is game I'd love to know.
Razer also has a powerbank that supports USB C PD with 20V 2.25A so even better!
I have the powercore+ and it works great. But I would get this one now (it's PD, so it'll charge way faster)
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 27W PD Portable Charger Bundle for N... [link]
With my own personal use case, I like this thing [link] - Its an external USB C battery pack, but it doesn't add much weight to a backpack / bag if you'll be carrying one of those around. I mostly use mine for travel.
So does the 26800 PD one.
I bought the Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD ([link]), got it on sale for $110. To be honest, I wish I had gotten something smaller. It's really, really, really fucking heavy compared to what I was expecting.
While I'm sure it could charge my Switch for days, I wish I had gotten a smaller one.
So I read the Anker one is the go to recommend one. What is the difference between these
Is it just accesories? The fastest way to get charge is to go to usb-c to usb-c. Correct? But looking at the images I just see USB-A ports in the images. If i want to to do usb-c to usb-c I would have to use the port that is used for charging? But it says input? does that mean it can't output?
Just wanted some clarfication.
idk how either of you are with DIY tech stuff...
But my plan is to roll my own.
I bought this battery. It should be more than enough to run overnight with 96Wh / 26,800mAh of capacity. Also to note, the largest battery the TSA permits on flights is 100Wh so this is right at that limit.
And I found this forum post where someone details how they made the cable for their ResMed (same one I have too).
I found another more detailed post from someone doing the same on reddit. I thought I bookmarked it but can't find it right now... I'll try to find that tonight.
This is WAY cheaper than a dedicated CPAP battery, and gives you some of the flexibility to power other devices via USB you're looking for. Regular USB for my phone, iPad, etc. Then USB C for my MacBook and Nintendo Switch, and soon the CPAP.
