    Damn, I got this for 98 at jb hifi after asking them to price match it with the good guys when they went for 98…

    I don't suppose it's possible for jb hifi to refund the price difference now that I already have the power bank, is it?

      Buy one at this price and return it with your higher priced receipt

      •  

        If you're still able to return using the higher priced receipt I'd recommend just go ask the store manager if he can do it for you in one go and save everyone and yourself the trouble of buying walking out only to walk back in to do a return.

  •  

    Can this be plugged in for self charging and pass through charging for attached peripherals?

    Wondering if anyone have this powerbank and what is charging this powerbank itself like?

    What type of charger and connection do you use and how long did it take?

    • +1 vote

      The best way to charge this Power Bank, would be using a USB-C PD Power Adapter.

    • +2 votes

      It charged pretty slow (maybe 4 hours) using a 18W Google Pixel 2XL USB-C charger.

      • +1 vote

        You need the 60W PD wall charger.

        • +1 vote

          I have a 60W PD charger, I prefer to charge slower because it's less wear on the Li-Po cells.
          Anyway, the power bank supports up to 30W USB-C PD input.

        •  

          @reactor-au: Yeah so at max speed it should charge to full in closer to 2 hrs. But with its capacity and especially if you want to charge it slower, physics kind of limits how fast it'll charge, can't get around that haha.

        • +1 vote

          @HighAndDry: I don't think it charges at full speed from 0-100%. Like a smartphone, it starts off slow, speeds up gradually towards half way until about 90% maybe then slows down for the last. I will test it further when Banggood (useless site) eventually deliver my Power-Z KT001 USB power meter.

        •  

          @reactor-au: Oh yeah - there's some power management/ideal charging speed curve thing. Just, faster than 4hrs I'd imagine.

      •  

        see my reply below, I couldn't get it to work with any of my google chargers :(

        Cygnett told me this was a known issue. so now i'm very confused…

        Did you get it working with the one that came in the box?

        Did the green "PD" light come on?

        were the blue lights flashing while charging?

        If this will actually work, then i'll buy again?

        •  

          I've only ever charged mine with google chargers, one that came with Pixel XL and one with Pixel 2 XL. Works fine for me. Green light comes on and blue lights flash until it is fully charged.

        •  

          @ringostingo: thanks very much for your reply! I'm so confused now… Why would Cygnett say it was a known issue?

        •  

          @yozza: I guess it could be a common issue, but I personally haven't had any issues at all. Maybe they're just saying it to shift the blame on to Google rather than themselves?

    • +2 votes

      I got this with the last $98 deal.

      I was very happy with this until it came to charging the power bank itself; it wouldn't charge with 3 different USB-C wall adapters!

      These weren't cheap random wall adapters either, they were 1) purchased from the google store 2) came with pixel 1 XL 3) came with pixel 2 XL.

      Called Cygnett and they were very evasive and tried to skirt the issue and blame google or some "incompatibility." Initially their product manager said that "in his experience there were some issues sometimes" then later he said Cygnett had done internal testing and confirmed it was a known problem!

      They then confirmed by email:
      *Cygnett testing has confirmed that the ChargeUp Pro 20k is unable to be charged by the Google 18W USB-C PD charger or the Google 15W USB-C charger
      *It is not currently known what the cause of this issue is
      *It is unknown whether future versions of this product will fix this issue

      Hope this helps

      •  

        Well that's not true because I charged mine with the 18W pixel 2XL charger.

        I think maybe if you drain the power bank completely it might not be able to negotiate USB PD and the charger won't send power, try using a USB A to USB C charger and cable to get it started. If you have a Power-Z KT001 you could maybe spoof the Pixel charger to negotiate USB PD too.

        •  

          thanks very much for your reply! I'm so confused now… Why would Cygnett say it was a known issue?

          Thanks, I've always been testing when it was above 25% charged (at least 2 dots) though…

          Maybe I just got unlucky? sigh.

        •  

          @yozza: thats very strange, and bad service on their part as well. I just received mine and am currently charging it with my pixel xl 2 charger.

    •  

      I use my MacBook Pro USB-C charger. I can't really comment how long it takes to charge it though because I usually just let it charge overnight.

  •  

    does this fast charge the iPhone8/X/XS?

    This can charge my Dell XPS 13 Laptop 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U 8GB RAM 256GB SSD 13.3” FHD, right?

  •  

    Does anyone know if it has just one output port (USB-C)? And I'm guessing charging is USB-C too?

    Time to put in a price protection claim on the CC. Thanks OP, 17$ better than the previous JB deal.

    Dimensions/weight if anyone is wondering:

    Thanks OP, pulled the plug finally - at this price it's a steal (RRP of $150 I think), and it's cutting edge tech.

      Eaby listing updated. use POINTY and get it for $74.97

      =(

      Anyone know of a way to refund TGG site purchase and buy off eBay instead? (Their 30-day price guarantee doesn't cover eBay or their own stores, so certainly not their own eBay store…).

    I'll be using this to charge my Switch, a review said that i'd need a Type-C to Type-C, can anyone tell me if i need a Type-C to Type-C cable to charge my switch?

    •  

      Yeah you will, the charging cable that comes with the Switch only connects to mains power

      •  

        hope this isn't a stupid question, but can I use a Type B to Type C to charge the switch?

        •  

          Not a stupid question. You can do it, but it will charge slower and may not do a good job of sustaining your battery if playing a demanding title like Zelda BOTW. USB-C to USB-C would be best.

          I use a short Anker PowerLine+ USB-C to USB-C cable with my Cygnett 20K powerbank and Nintendo Switch. They cost about $20 on eBay.

    •  

      I'll be doing the same. Do you know if any Type-C to Type-C would work just as good?

      •  

        Yes the type-c to type-c is the best way to charge the switch but the usb-a to usb-c will still charge slowly but good enough for indies and less demanding titles.

      •  

        You'll need a Type-C to Type-C cable that supports USB-PD charging. Not all Type-C cables support this.

  •  

    I don't really need PD. Do you think it is better to get the Xiaomi 20k ones?

      yea if i didnt need pd i wouldnt get this mate

    •  

      If you don't need PD there are tons of option. This is basically the one of two Australian stock power bank with USB-C PD (the other being Kogan).

    it doesn't support macbook pro.

    •  

      It does charge the MacBook Pro, but the output isn't enough to sustain the charge % if you're using the laptop under a high load.

      If you're just idling it will charge but best usecase is to just close the lid and let it charge without using it.

  •  

    Bought one from Myer Doncaster a while ago with price match, but used award points to "pay" for it. One thing I've noticed is the tiny charging lead that came with it….10cm….gets damn hot. So I've been using my S8 lead…charger and lead still get hot, but all good so far. Great unit, even though it's a bit weighty when travelling.

    •  

      Cygnett has less capacity but much higher output wattage charging a larger variety of devices quickly.

    •  

      Basically the Cygnett has max 45W USB-PD output over the USB-C port, and a QC3.0 USB-A port.

      Ravpower has 6800mAH more capacity, but only does 30W USB-PD output, and its USB-A ports are just normal ones.

      The shipping comes out to be more. I could only get it for $80.33 delivered. Could not find any stores for C&C.

  •  

    Does this come with a cable to charge the actual powerbank?

    •  

      yes, but only A-C (not C-C). so you can't use PD with the included cable

      •  

        Sorry mate. I'm a complete noob… What's PD mean/do?

        •  

          Power Delivery. Allows USB-C devices to charge with very high Wattage. This is how you can now use USB-C to charge laptops, etc.

          If you don't need this, there are much cheaper power banks, so you should save your dollars.

        •  

          Okay makes sense. I will be using this to charge my Nintendo Switch - this is the proper way to charge it, correct? Using USB-C?

        •  

          @Pulsations: yes. it will work with A, but will charge much slower. if playing demanding games, it may not be sufficient to charge.

        • +1 vote

          Okay but using a USB-C cable with this powerbank will be the most sufficient way to charge my Switch?

        •  

          @Pulsations: Yes. Make sure you get a Type-C to Type-C cable that supports USB-PD charging though. Not all Type-C cables support this.

  •  

    This looks like it will work perfectly for charging my switch/macbook pro (2017). This or the Anker one?

  •  

    Would this charge the Surface Go over USB C?

    •  

      The Surface Go seems to accept USB-PD 45W charging, and this powerbank does USB-PD 45W charging, so tentative "yes" on this count. Go google for real-life accounts to be safe.

  •  

    Would this be able to charge the Mi notebook pro?

  •  

    Does anyone have a link to a good USB-C to USB-C cable? I can't seem to find any except for one that is $30…

    Hi everyone!

    My 2 devices that need charging are Samsung S9 and Lenovo 14" Thinkpad Carbon X1 2017, both of which have USB-C charging.
    With the 20,000 mAh, how many charges can it give my laptop?

    Also, how would I go about powering this powerbank up? Do I have to use my laptop's power brick which is 65W USB-C?

    Thanks!
