A good deal on a good power bank.
Original Coupon Deal
Anyone found any good power bank with power delivery that are smaller than this?
20000 is too big to carry around every day
They do a 10000 in the zma range by Xiaomi
I've got the 2s 10,000mah.
Much easier to carry than my 20,000mah power bank!
It depends on how much Watt USB-C PD you're after.
There's various 18W USB-C PD power bank with a smaller form factor such as the Xiaomi ZMI QB910
For 30-45W PD, the smallest ones are in the ~15,000mah range (but most are 20,000+). For 18W PD, there are a bunch of 10,000mah ones.
Could be building houses with this baby
This should allow a Switch to function in TV mode, right? I think its own brick is 39W.
Wouldn't you be plugging your TV in anyway in that case?
Good for when you have a second dock you travel with.
According to this, yes.
Yes, it has 15V/3A (dock needs 15V/2.6A), so it will work.
Good price, but it is too heavy to carry around for me. Hope there's a 12000 ~ 15000 mAh high density one come on sale
This works great for about a full charge on my Surface Pro.
Hi mate, what sort of cable have you been using and where did you buy it? I have tried few off eBay but it just work now and then. Found one in Amazon, J-Go Tech USB C to surface connector but it's about $35 and not too sure if that actually works. Many thanks ☺️
Hey mate. I bought the J-Go tech cable from the USA. So if you can get it locally, even better. Can confirm it works flawlessly with this power bank. The only downside is when the cable is plugged in to the PB, it's 'always on' so you need to remove the cable to not waste power on the power bank. Not sure if that is a cable or PB flaw. Otherwise, it's fantastic.
Thanks again, will get that cable and see how it goes. Cheers
@Smokey010: Most welcome.
@Smokey010: Otherwise buy the MS adapter, it's $55 And you know it works right.
@Soluble: Too bulky for me, tried that in store at JB-HiFi. Cheers
Not a bargain paid 3 cents less with one of the recent EBay coupons.
Cheers, I nearly pulled the trigger until I read this. I'll wait for a repeat of the deal you got.
The powerbank is ok
Can you use a switch charger with this and will it charge the powerbank by usb PD?
Please note the expected delivery is only in 21st October.. Very long wait
Anyone know if this will 45W charge the note10+?
No. Note10+ needs pps, and there is only the genuine Samsung charger that does 45 it will work at 25w however.
Are you sure about it? I was going to use it for Note 10 plus
Isaw is correct, there is no power bank on the market that supports 45w and the only AC charger is the Genuine Samsung one. 3 amp at up to 15v.
Yes, that's true. If you want all the way up to 45W you actually need two things:
Not only the charger matters, the cable also matters (for USB-PD 3 PPS). It might surprise people, but when I tested cheap USB-C cables, I found they consistently charge at lower voltage and current level and at times refuse to engage PD mode properly (stuck at 5V).
@netsurfer: And all this for only a few minutes charging time saving over the 25w charger!
@fatty: Same can be said about people buying 3rd party cables and chargers. Are they really worth the trouble?
Is it worthwhile stockpiling cheap USB-PD cables now with majority of them without e-maker info and inferior wires? With this powerbank technically supports USB-PD 3 with PPS (though not up to 45W), is it really right to claim 45W support on USB-C?
It is way too easy to false advertise on these USB PD charging accessories and technically they are simply using loop holes in the standard (it's the same for a lot of QC3 accessories, a lot of them don't support QC3 PPS but QC3 doesn't mandate PPS must be implemented to be a QC3 accessory). With so many charging standards, it is unrealistic to expect a charger which supports everything. Even Apple and Samsung chargers don't work well the other camp's devices.
In one of my comments on one of the past deals on this device, there was a review link I posted:
That's a good review because it runs this thing through a meter. USB PD was tested and my take on the result is this:
It does support USB PD 3.0 and PPS, BUT the 45W is done at 20V (and NOT at the PPS level). Its PPS support maxes out at 33W (at 11V). So, 45W PPS is not going to happen with Note 10+ using this. However, with the correct cable (USB-C cable correctly e-marked - i.e. that original cable provided by your Samsung phone), it could technically go up to 33W. Whether it will is a question mark. When it comes to USB PD, the device, charger and the cable negotiate to determine the voltage and current to charge constantly.
Honestly, when it comes to an expensive device, stick with original charger and cable. You could gamble on these, but you really need a proper USB meter and proper cables to verify. Any meter that can check USB PD and PPS costs more than this powerbank.
What gamble? The risk is that it will take a bit longer to charge. The original charger isn't much use if you don't have access to a power point.
It can charge my Dell XPS 13 fully once.
Great product just a bit too bulky.
