Feed the need for Quick Charge speeds.

Weighing in at 12.5oz, this power bank is solid in design, featuring a glossy black finish that's a real stickler for fingerprints. You'll find the power button on the top, along with a series of LED lights that provide percentages of remaining battery life at any given time.

What's unique about the CHOETECH power bank is its ability to be charged using either a microUSB cable or Apple Lightning cable. Both ports are featured on the front lip of the power bank next to 2 USB ports — 1 standard and the other Quick Charge 2.0 certified. Both inputs charge at a max rate of 2.1A, regardless of what cable you end up using to replenish the power bank. Output 1 (standard) provides 1A, and output 2 (QC 2.0) at 2.4A. Bundled with the power bank is a single 4ft. microUSB cable for charging your phone or the portable battery.

To completely charge the power bank, you're looking at approximately 7 hours using a Quick Charger, or about 10 hours with a standard charger. It comes with the standard protection features built-in, including over-current, over-charge, and short circuit protection. It happily charges 2 devices simultaneously, as long as you have an extra USB cable laying around. Given the brute size of this power bank, it's definitely not ideal for pocketing, but would still do well for traveling or weekend camping trips. Just keep it away from water, because this isn't a rugged power bank meant for that kind of abuse.

Our take

It's got plenty of backup power with its 15600mAh battery, dual-USB ports, a Quick Charge 2.0 option, and can be charged up with a microUSB or Lightning USB cable. It's quite the beast for its $39.99 price tag. If you're really only keeping one device alive for a trip, you could probably go with something a bit slimmer like the Aukey 10k Quick Charge Power Bank. For 2 or more devices though, this is a pretty solid option.
