8 of the Best Portable Travel Blenders for 2020

Do you love both traveling and blending stuff up? Are you a gym-goer, a time-saver or a nutrient ninja? If so, then you may be surprised to know just how easy and affordable it is to take your blending experience on the road with you. If you are looking for the best travel blender of 2020, then read on, you have come to the right place.

What is a travel blender?

The chunkiest blender that we feature weighs in at a feather-light 2.2 pounds, and is the heaviest product that we would consider in the travel category. Normally they are battery operated and fully rechargeable, however we do feature one corded blender in this list because it is light and comes with a well-designed travel cup.

Where can I take it?

Anywhere you like! The lightest blender is about one pound, making it an easy addition to any trip where ounce-counting is important. Think multi-day hikes, back-country backpacking, ultra-marathons and long-distance cycling. We have blenders that will sit near-silently on your desk at work and blenders that will better suit the gym junkies.

How to choose the best one for you?

It depends on what you want it for. Hikers should look for something light. People with cycling commutes or who want to drink smoothies while driving should choose blenders that have detachable cups that are suitably-sized for their needs. Those looking to take their blenders camping or to remote locations with limited charging options should consider the ones with the largest battery capacities.

Often people are left disappointed by the size of travel blenders, not realising they only blend enough for one or two people at a time. If you are after a larger volume travel blender, make this your priority. If you need to mix a 15-ounce post-gym smoothie, then a 10-ounce blender simply will not cut it.

Different blenders offer different things

If you really cannot stand doing dishes, then choose one of the blenders that we have identified as waterproof and being easy to clean. If you want to crush ice and frozen fruits and vegetables, then you will need to pick one of the more powerful machines on the market.

We feature two travel blenders that double as USB rechargeable battery packs for emergency phone or gadget charging. If you want a blender solely for juices, then consider one of the products that come with a strainer so that you can get rid of the bits. Whatever your needs, we have a little something for everyone.

These are 8 of the Best Portable Travel Blenders:

1. DOUHE Cordless Mini 

What better way to start the round-up than by featuring the lightest portable blender on the list? Everything about this blender screams take me with you, and the design is just so clever that it isn’t even funny.

The blades are hidden in the lid compartment, so load the cup with goodness, throw the lid on, double click, turn upside down, and presto! A short 40 seconds later your juice or smoothie will be ready.

We love the magnetic connector that enables the easiest of charging procedures, while keeping this device completely waterproof. Cleaning just became a whole lot easier.

Pros:
  • Charges quickly
  • Completely waterproof
  • Easy to clean.
Cons:
  • The capacity of the cup is a little too small
  • The small battery capacity means you have to charge more often.

The 20-second blending time is rapid, and it is useful that the blender can still be used while charging. The cup is shatter-resistant and dishwasher safe, while the powerful 4000 mAh battery will keep those blades spinning for days.

The blender also comes with a handy ice-cube tray, scoop and funnel.

Pros:

So, it is probably just big enough to make a drink for two people at once. It is great if you want to share, or just need that bigger portion yourself.

It comes with a useful rubber carrying loop joined to the cover, while a removable filter allows you to get rid of the bits if you prefer to have your juice without the chunks.

Pros:
  • Rapid charging time
  • Comes with an ice tray
  • Charges in only 2-3 hours

It is a little more expensive than some other blenders, but it is a quality bit of gear and you will get what you pay for.

8. Kacsoo S610 Personal Glass Smoothie Blender

Spoiler Alert: Have we saved the best for last with this beast from Kacsoo?  Possibly. Quite possibly. With larger battery capacities come more expensive price tags, and so it goes with this glass blender from Kacsoo, the 5200 mAh battery being the largest we feature in this list. It is ideal for those going places without any power to charge your gear, and will run longer on average than the other blenders.

It does mean the inevitable longer charging times, but this blender more than makes up for that with a remarkably-quick 20-second blending time. It is another glass product, so bear that in mind before taking it anywhere extreme.

Pros:
  • Large battery capacity
  • Very quiet
  • Rapid blending time
Con:
  • Can struggle to blend ice

Specs

Battery Capacity: 5200 mAh

Dimensions: 9.4 x 3 x 3 inches

Volume: 15 oz

Weight: 1.65 lbs

Conclusion

Yeah okay, so I spoiled it already. Coming in both a manly matte-coffee color, and a not-too-girly pink, the Kacsoo S610 is my choice for the best travel blender of 2020. For whatever reason you choose to take a blender with you when you leave home, the S610 has you covered.

The larger-than-standard-sized 5200 mAh battery keeps this blender going for longer when you are away from civilization, while the 20-second blending time is as fast as any other product on the market. It can be cleaned by simply adding water and blending, while the one button and limited functions make this an exceptionally easy device to use.
