Ravpower 26800 Usb c with PD on sale with a $5 coupon. Not the lowest of $59 all time but close. Good for Nintendo switch.

Thanks OP, I had this on my watch list and just came to post about the price drop to $62.99 but I see you're two steps ahead! There have been some solid reviews for the Ravpower, and it's a good alternative for those who missed out on the Anker 26800 PD battery pack that was posted a few weeks ago. This actually comes out a little cheaper if you consider the coupon and the value of a PD wall charger (~$40).

I'll have to grab this when I get home - I've already got the Aukey USB-C power bank, but sometimes my usage patterns mean the Aukey doesn't get fully charged before I'm leaving the house again, so it would be good to have another bank to alternate.

is this overkill for charging an iPhone 6 and a LG G6 while traveling? The marketing seems to indicate it's best if you have a Nintendo or Apple laptop. What's the best choice for keeping my phones charged all day during my upcoming Disneyland trip?

Tempting...I had this in my wish list as well, but it looks like you'll also need to buy a USB-C wall plug.

if you're planning to charge both phones while out for the entire day taking pictures and draining power, then no it's not over kill.

thanks op. not the lowest price but still a decent deal. my Asus Chromebook charges extremely quickly with the included 45W Type C PD walwart so this should work well even if its 'only' 30W.

Its an overkill because if you arent using it for switch/laptop, you can get away with using a much cheaper power bank without PD/type c. You often can find anker 30k on sale for $45-50 or cheaper/lower capacity for under $30. Basically you are paying a premium for PD when you arent going to use it. You can even make a case that this is overkill for switch since you really just need a type c charger not a pd charger to max speed charge a switch.

This can do about 10 charges for an iPhone 6 and G6 - will you be using your phone a lot at Disneyland for video? If not, a 10,000 mah battery is probably enough (3 charges) and half the size.

Just bought this 2 weeks ago at a much higher price on amazon (was leaving for a trip)

No way to price protect on amazon is there?

I just wanted to add, this charger can be taken around for travel as it is within the specifications. I bring this around tons because it charges my i7+ pretty quickly. Downside: its kind of big to be carrying around in your purse. It's great for charging two devices simultaneously though. Also comes with useful pouch for all my cables.

This one is at the MAX size that you are allowed to bring on a flight without approval.
26800/1000 * 3.7 = 99.16 Wh

If you go with the 30000maH one suggested above, you "may" face resistance with TSA. Sizes 100.1 to 160 Wh are allowed BUT requires permission. If you are hoping to have less hassle with TSA, then just stick with 26800 or less.
