The iWalk Extreme Trio 10000 is probably the best-looking power bank in this round-up.

It has textured diamond patterns on its front, with a small backlit LCD display that shows battery percentage, device charging current and charging time remaining.

It is available in white, black and gold (version reviewed). The review model has a nice, glamorous shine. On its bottom, there is a power button, a 2.4A USB output port and a micro-USB charging port.

The best part about the iWalk is its built-in Lightning cable and built-in micro-USB cable. So you can charge up to three devices at the same time, while taking along only one cable.

It is quite thin at 13mm. This makes it very comfortable to hold my iPhone 6s Plus with the iWalk while catching Pokemon.

Using the 2.4A outport, it took 1hr 30min to charge my iPhone from 50 per cent battery level to full.
