Minecraft Earth fuses the hit blockbuster into the real world, backed by the magic of augmented reality (AR) and GPS mapping. However, it's a proven power-hungry fiend and the app can cut your battery short throughout the day. We've rounded up the best iPhone and Android portable chargers and power banks, fitting for Minecraft Earth and everyday use.
Mirroring the form factor of large-screen smartphones, Aukey packs 10,000 mAh into a pocketable bank. It delivers up to three full charges over USB-C and two USB ports, bolstered by Quick Charge 3.0 and Power Delivery compliance.
Anker's lower-capacity entry in the PowerCore range falls in a slimline, cylindrical design. With 5000mAh capacity and one USB port, it's ideal as an everyday companion, sporting a LED charge indicator and available in four colorways.
This 3350mAh pack supplies pen-sized power to get you through the day. Although not the fastest solution, the compact device supplies around one charge for your phone while staying portable and budget-friendly.
Day after day
Known for leading mobile accessories, this Anker high-capacity power bank keeps you charged up for days. It retains a lightweight, low-profile design while boasting up to seven full phone charges, two USB ports, and a four-stage LED indicator.
Brimming with the latest charging tricks, Hokonui delivers function and style. It packs Qi wireless charging, Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 over USB, USB-C, and a sleek LCD battery indicator. It's feature-rich and fitting for any modern iPhone or Android device.
Packing beastly capacity and all the ports you'd ever need, EasyAcc is our top high-performance bank. With four USB ports and potential to charge nearly a dozen phones, it's primed for a busy week or sharing with mining friends. While neither the lightest or most portable design, it gets the job done right.
Keep it simple
If a hefty battery pack isn't your style, a battery case is the best alternative. This Trianium case straps an extra charge to your iPhone X or iPhone XS, with models also branching to other devices. Although there's no wireless charging or wired headphone support, it reduces the clutter in daily use.
When picking up a new power bank, don't forget the cable. This USB-C cable is a perfect pairing, just 6 inches long to avoid tangling while on the move, and power output drawing the best from our chosen batteries.
While official iPhone accessories aren't cheap, Amazon's in-house product line has an affordable alternative without sacrificing quality. The four-inch cable is clutter-free for power packs, sporting Apple's MFi stamp of approval, and a durable rubberized design.

While Minecraft Earth remains locked down to a limited pool of beta testers, its underlying technology already puts a strain on your battery. When fitting exploration into the daily routine, a power bank adds that much-needed safety net to power through.
Aukey's 10,000mAh Power Bank (opens in new tab) is our in-house favorite, sporting a slimline design for easy carrying, while still packing three USB ports. Get choice of legacy USB connectors, alongside USB-C, and modern advanced standards, serving as a proficient all-rounder.
For a more pocketable alternative while on the go, the Anker PowerCore 5000 (opens in new tab) switches it up with a cylindrical mid-tier cell. While it'll only charge your phone once or twice per day, it gives that much-needed backup to avoid hitting the dreaded zero percent.
