Review: A Power Pack for Every Need from Energizer

I had a chance to check out Energizer at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and in particular its various Energizer Power Packs. Energizer has something for everyone, whether it's a slim charger with integrated connectors or a whopping 20,000 mAh pack with five ports including one USB-C port, in a compact package about the size of a deck of cards.

I'm a fan of Qi-based wireless charging, so the Wireless Power Bank is great. It offers 10,000 mAh and devices can be charged by two  USB-A ports, one USB-C port, or the integrated Qi charging pad on top.

As you'd expect with the Energizer brand, these items are reliable and still affordable. Some of the packs are heavy ,but that's because they are storing huge battery packs.
