O, so let’s start off by saying that this review is completed after a full week of usage, pictures in operation were not done due to a single phone and most of the testing being late at night after dark.
First impressions: The package arrived in good timing and was delivered safely by the chosen shipping company so that is always a plus. initial reaction was wow this package is small, almost thought it was something else entirely.
Opening up the package I was again shocked by the overall size, for an 8000 mAH battery pack with wireless charging, PD and QC charging capability this little guy is small.
The device came with enough charge to play right out of the package, I opened it at work and did not have a PD plug available, but thankfully there is also a backup micro-USB option to charge that works well enough to get me ready for the day.
Starting with the charging ports, there are a total of 4 ports that you can interact with. The first on the side is a micro-USB. This port is charging only and intended more as a backup charge port if you do not have a PD charger handy.
The second is a straight USB-A port intended for non quick charge devices. It works well for whats needed (charged an Apple iPhone 7 just as fast as a standard port).
The third port, also a USB-A is intended for quick charge, identified as such through a mellow maroon color. My personal LG V35 recognized this device immediately and started to fast charge as quickly as the OEM charger used in comparison.
The fourth and final port is a dual direction USB-C plug. This port is capable of functioning as both a charger for external devices, as well as the internal medium for its own charging. Since the LG V35 is capable of quick charge and PD, the comparison showed charging speeds of roughly the same time frame, under fast-charging mode in both instances. It also served well for a Dell XPS, the output is nowhere near high enough to function as a stand alone charger, but it is able to drastically reduce discharge and prolong life in a pinch.
Finally, the device is capable of wireless charging. The battery indicator button on the side when fast pressed 2 times actives a wireless setup on the top of the device. The charging works very well, working on cases that were roughly 5mm or less (the Otterbox Defender case was marginal). During a Pokémon Go excursion, this wireless charging was utilized on 4 different series of iPhones (8, XS, XR Max and 11 Pro) without any real issues, as well as an LG V35 and Note 10 with slow charging but still operation. Paired in wireless charging while fast walking town was not as uncomfortable as expected due to the small size of the charger. It was also nice that you just needed to remove your phone and the wireless charging would turn off, no need to worry about forgetting to turn it off yourself.
Through approximately 30 hours of usage in a weeks time it is easy to say another will be in my near future. The only concern would be the finish is a little slick for wireless compatibility, resulting in the phones sometimes stopping charging because they slid a little. Some form of texture (fabric, leather, rippling) would make a huge improvement in handling capability. All in all this device is great and the price point makes it a worthwhile investment.
