RAVPower Power Bank Portable Charger 26800mAh, 3-Port, 5.5A, iSmart Output, USB External Battery Pack for iPhone XS/XS MAX/XR, Galaxy S9/S8 and More Mobile Phones – White/ Black
With a gigantic battery capacity, three charge ports for simultaneous charging and a solid and durable built, the RAVPower 26800mAh Portable Charger is simply one of the best power banks you can get if you’re looking for a high-speed battery that provides you with more than a week’s worth of charges. For your mobile devices
The RAVpower Xtreme 26800’s design has a sleek glossy shell. It measures 6.81 inches in length and 3.19 inches wide which is similar to other models of similar capacity. However, it’s slightly thinner at 0.87 inches. Which makes it somewhat possible to carry in your pocket but you will most likely use a rucksack or travel bag of some sort. Obviously, with its size and weight, it is far from comfortable to carry in your pocket. It weighs around a pound (453g) but it is much slimmer and easier to carry around that other power bank units.
With power banks of this size, there’s always the question whether you’re allowed to take it with you through airport security. Most airports enforce a carry limit for devices above 100Wh. The RAVPower 26800, however, holds just 81.4Wh power, and thus it is fine to take with you on a domestic flight. Amake sure you do some research about any restrictions beforehand.
The casing of the power bank is strong and sturdy, and although it is made of plastic, it feels the manufacturer put some thought as it does feel high quality. The shell is solid and hard enough to handle some rough impacts inside your backpack but that doesn’t mean you can disregard the fact it won’t like if you don’t look after it or drop it on a hard surface. One important and positive aspect is its top scratch resistant layer. This will keep the unit looking always good and scratch free.
The RAVPower 26800 Portable Charger is fitted with three USB output ports so you can charge three devices at once. All of these ports are smart charging ports fitted with RAVPower’s iSmart technology. The unit will seek the optimal charging rate for the device you’re charging, giving you the most efficient charge possible. Apart from getting the best charging rate for the particular device, it also makes sure your device’s battery won’t get damaged over the long run.
The three charge ports can output a maximum of 5.5A and this is really important and very valuable. These are very quick charging rates even when charging three devices at once. Being able to get 5.5A in 3 devices simultaneously is really impressive.
In the upper corner of the device, we find a power button, which also, when pressed, will show you how much battery is left in the power bank. This is indicated by the standard four blue LED lights. It would be nice though if there were a few more than just four indicators since the 25% increments of 26800mAh are simply too big.
If the indicator shows three blue lights means a range of 50% to 75%, the remaining battery could be anywhere from 13,400mAh to 20,100mAh. Six or seven battery indicators would’ve been great, or even better if they had built in an LED display with battery percentage. That would have definitely been really useful and helpful.
The RAVPower boats a gigantic battery capacity of 26,800mAh, which makes this monster one of the largest batteries out there capacity wise. RAVPower claims the power bank will provide you with nine days of usage. I can certainly imagine that to be correct as the capacity alone is huge on itself.
The RAVPower 26800 Portable Charger is good for six to ten charges for your smartphone, depending on the size of your smartphone’s battery and about twice for a tablet or iPad. iPad Pro being about one and a half times.
The RAVPower’s iSmart technology manages to produce very impressive charging speeds with some smartphones charging fully in just over an hour, or hour and a half. Very impressive to say the least. Moreover, you can take advantage of the triple charging ports by charging three devices simultaneously, saving even more time.
The input port of the RAVPower Xtreme 26800 Portable Charger is equipped with 2.4A. Meaning the device itself is charged in roughly 15 hours when using a 2.4A wall adapter. Using a 1A wall adapter, however, will take the power bank about twice as long to charge. So make sure you’re equipped with a good 2.4A wall charger as it is not included with the power bank.
The RAVPower 26800mAh is simply a top-notch power bank with colossal battery capacity. The device can surely save you out multiple times if you’re away from a power source and on the road, as it’ll give your average smartphone more than six charges, your tablet twice, and thanks to its triple charge ports fitted with iSmart technology, does it safely, quickly and saves you massive amounts of time.
