'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

Regular readers will know that I'm a huge fan of massive power banks. The sort of bricks that can keep all my devices charged up and ready to go. But sometimes portability and convenience are important factors, too.

If you're looking for a compact power bank that features wireless charging -- which means not having to carry cables with you -- then take a look at Aukey's PB-WL02 wireless 10,000mAh power bank/charger.

And for the next few days, you can get money off this great package.

Aukey PB-WL02 wireless power bank/charger

At the heart of the package is 10,000mAh of power, enough to recharge an iPhone 11 Pro 2.6 times, a 2019 iPad Air 0.9 times, or a Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 1.8 times.

The Qi-compatible wireless charger supports 5W, 7.5W, and 10W wireless output levels depending on the device, allowing for charging without a cable. For those that prefer using a cable, there's a single USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 port and USB-A Quick Charge 3.0 port. The Poser Delivery port can charge a new iPhone from flat to 50% in 30 minutes.

  • Battery Capacity: 10000mAh
  • USB-C Input: (Power Delivery 3.0) DC 5V 3A, 9V 2A
  • USB-C Output: (Power Delivery 3.0) DC 5V 3A, 9V 2A, 12V 1.5A
  • USB Output: (Quick Charge 3.0) DC 5V 2.4A, 9V 2A, 12V 1.5A
  • Wireless Output: 5W, 7.5W, 10W
  • Max Power Output: 18W

One concern I had for the PB-WL02 was the little kickstand -- it looked flimsy to me. However, it resisted my attempts to break it, so it gets my seal of approval.

The package comes with a USB-A to USB-C charging, and is covered by a 24-month warranty.

Great power bank/charger for those who want a package that's small and light enough to take with them when they go out and about.
