This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in December of 2018. While it's taking off somewhat slowly, USB-C is undoubtedly the connector of the future. It's versatile, reversible, and capable of delivering up to 100 watts of intelligently managed energy using the Power Delivery protocol. Its vast functionality has led to a wide range of portable power banks able to refuel the newest tablets and laptops, at speeds that standard battery backups can't achieve.

Editor's Notes

December 27, 2018:

Now that manufacturers have (somewhat) gotten their acts together, it's possible to find a USB-C Power Delivery battery for nearly any laptop with a type C input. The Jackery is about as large as the TSA allows on planes, and it fully recharges in under 3 hours, which is a little quicker than most. If you're not flying, the Krisdonia is an excellent, long-lasting choice, with a larger capacity than other portable options. The Goal Zero Yeti is for you if you'll be working with multiple devices for long periods of time — its plethora of power plugs is perfectly suited to somewhat larger appliances like fans, small TVs, and CPAP machines. Goal Zero's Sherpa also quite functional, though with fewer ports and a much lower capacity. The ZMI, Dodocool, and Zendures are all quite affordable, and work almost as well as the more expensive options. Whichever you choose, make sure before purchasing that it is, in fact, compatible with your particular model of laptop.
