While it’s bigger than the mini Jackery charger, the 4.8-ounce Anker PowerCore 5000 is still relatively small and light, and it’s got enough juice to charge an iPhone 6S twice, give a full single charge to a Samsung Galaxy S6, or partially charge an iPad Mini.

Ready to step up to something a little more powerful?

Even better, the RavPower can charge two mobile devices at once thanks to its dual USB charging ports.
