Many of Samsung’s mid-range smartphones no longer have removable batteries which means you can no longer carry around a spare battery and pop it in whenever your phone runs out of charge. That is the case with the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy A8+ (2018) and while their 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries respectively will get you through the day, some of you might still be searching for the best power banks for Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ (2018).

Why you should buy a power bank:

External power banks can prove to be quite useful if you don’t have any problems carrying them around. They tend to have higher capacities which means that they can be used to charge one device multiple times or even charge multiple devices at the same time. They’re easier to live with than a battery case as well since you can just disconnect and leave the power bank behind when it’s not fulfilling its purpose.

Since it also has USB Type-C input, you can charge it up using your handset’s charger.

It delivers a max speed charge of up to 3A with Anker’s Power IQ and VoltageBoost technologies. The Anker PowerCore can be purchased from Amazon for $29.99.

Samsung Fast Charge Battery Pack

Samsung Fast Charge Battery Pack

A bit on the more expensive side as it’s from Samsung, the Fast Charge battery pack is available in 10,200mAh capacity with support for rapid charging that can fill up the battery from 0 to 50 percent in about 30 minutes. Since it’s Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 enabled, it can provide high speed charging on even more devices. It charges non-QC 2.0 devices at up to a 2A speed.

It doesn’t have USB Type-C input though so you will have to carry a separate cable with you in order to charge this power bank. It normally costs $80 but Amazon has it on sale right now for $55.

RAVPower

One of the best-selling options on Amazon, it’s no surprise that this is on our list of best power banks for Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+ (2018).

Since it’s meant for those who love the great outdoors, the SolarJuice also has a multi-functional LED flashlight. Amazon has it on sale for $44.99.

Heloideo Power Bank

Heloideo Power Bank
