I am a big believer in having portable chargers on hand for traveling, or for potential power outages due to weather emergencies. I had recently updated to some really great ones when I saw a tweet by Anker about their new "Anker Magnetic Wireless Portable Charger." I ordered one from Amazon before it was even available. It finally arrived late last week, 'hot off the press', and I am very impressed with it.

My friend has kindly lent me his Charmast power brick for my up-coming hospital stay. It is a heavy-duty, but compact charger with four ports out and two ports in. The model number is W2002P. It apparently will charge a MacBook up twice on one charge.

That sounds really great! Good luck with your hospital stay!

I have an Phone Xr and will be getting Phone 11. I am looking for a portable charger to carry with me to use with Phone 11. I will be using an Otterbox case. I am looking for something small and reliable that I can put in my pocket, jeans or jacket to carry around. I know there is a variety of portable chargers of various sizes and options.

Thanks.

I like Anker power banks. I also have a really nice one from Spigen. It's a Spigen PocketBoost, and it does a great job. These are not as small as the ones that I used about 5 years ago... which were roughly the size of a lipstick. I looked on Amazon, and the ones I got from there are no longer available. Another option would be a battery case, but they are pricey, and you already have an Otterbox.

Hopefully, others will come along with some recommendations.

Thanks for the information. What Anker power bank are you using?

I have a 12 Pro and am using the Anker Magnetic Wireless Portable Charger, PowerCore Magnetic 5K Wireless 5,000mAh Power Bank with USB-C Cable, Design for iPhone 12/12 Pro / 12 Pro Max.

You might want to take a look at the Anker PowerCore 10000 Portable Charger. According to Anker it's "One of The Smallest and Lightest 10000mAh Power Bank, Ultra-Compact Battery Pack, High-Speed Charging Technology Phone Charger for iPhone, Samsung and More."

It's about $25.00 on Amazon.
