The real thing of a high-performance battery that is likely to cross the barrier of "mobile battery" no longer reaches the editorial department of GIGAZINE, so I actually tried using it.

"PowerCore + 26800 PD" and "PowerCore Speed ​​20000 QC" arrived at the editorial department.


I will open it at once.


◆ Anker PowerCore + 26800 PD
This is PowerCore + 26800 PD. Quick charger, USB cable (USB - C / USB - C), USB cable (USB - A / Micro - USB), special travel pouch are included in addition to the main body.


The body of PowerCore + 26800 PD looks like this. I am following the traditional black-based design, but the size feeling that is so confused as "Mobile battery ......?"


Taking it in my hand, it's just loading a large capacity of 26800 mAh, and I feel weight heavily.


When the power button is pushed, the remaining amount of the battery can be checked with the LED indicator.


I / O is USB 3.0 port × 2, USB PD port × 1. USB 3.0 ports are both Anker's proprietary fast charge technology "PowerIQIt is compatible with "Mobile devices can be charged quickly."


The input / output specifications are as follows. When the output of the USB 3.0 port is "5 V = 3 A (maximum 3A)", the output of the USB PD port is "5 V = 3 A, 9 V = 3 A, 15 V = 2 A, 20 V = 1.5 A" = 3A, 9 V = 3 A ".


No logo or button on the back side.


The weight was actually measured 581 g. The dimensions are about 180 × 80 × 24 mm.


When charging the Nexus 5X with the USB PD port, "Quick Charging in Progress" was displayed just like when charging with a charger compatible with Quick Charge 2.0.


If you use the USB PD port, you can charge not only mobile devices but also Nintendo Switch which requires USB PD charger. However, it seems that it can not be charged when the Nintendo Switch is HDMI connected as in "TV mode". Also, as a measure of capacity, you can charge iPhone 7 more than 10 times, tablet terminal more than 2 times, MacBook and MacBook Pro (13 inches) can be charged more than once.


The USB - C fast charger required to quickly charge the main body from the USB PD port is designed to be charged to the battery.


If you insert it from the USB-C quick charger into the USB PD port, you can fill the capacity of 26800 mAh in just 4.5 hours. The battery can be quickly charged with a brute force method of inserting two USB cablesPowerCore II 20000"Is the performance of charging 20000 mAh within 6 hours, you can see that the PowerCore + 26800 PD compatible with USB PD can charge the battery smarter and faster.


It is like this when put in a dedicated travel porch.


Even if you put the body of the pouch, there is a little room at the entrance, so you can carry the USB cable together and carry around.


◆ Anker PowerCore Speed ​​20000 QC
Then opened "PowerCore Speed ​​20000 QC". Inside was the body, travel pouch, Micro - USB cable included.


Input and output are two USB ports for output (left PowerIQ / right Quick Charge 3.0), Micro-USB port for input.


Input / output specifications are as follows. QC 3.0 output is "5-8V / 3A, 8-10V / 2.4A, 10-12V / 2A" with QC 3.0 output when "5-7V / 2A, 7-9V / 2A, 9-12V / 1.5A" . The normal output is "5 V / 2A".


On the front is the "Anker" logo and LED indicator.


Press the button on the side to check the remaining capacity of the battery.


On the back was the Quick Charge 3.0 logo.


The weight was actually measured to be 359 g, and the size was about 166 × 62 × 22 mm. It is said that it has succeeded in making 30% compact as it is as compared with the previous model.


I brought it in my hand. Compared to PowerCore + 26800 PD, it's slim & compact, I do not feel too much weight.


Credit card size "PowerCore 10000"And" PowerCore Speed ​​20000 QC "" PowerCore + 26800 PD ", you can see the feeling of each size.


Compatible with Quick Charge 2.0Nextbit RobinWhen it was the Quick Charge port, it displayed as "fast charging" without any problem. PowerCore Speed ​​20000 QC is not only output but also input is also compatible with Quick Charge 3.0. In addition to being able to quickly charge a smartphone compatible with Quick Charge like this, charging the main body of the battery from a charger compatible with Quick Charge, it is possible to charge in approximately 5 hours and 40 minutes, which is twice as fast as the previous model. As a measure of capacity, it seems that iPhone 7 can be charged about 7 times, Galaxy S8 4 times or more, iPad Pro (9.7 inches) released in 2017 can be charged twice.


It is like this when put in the travel porch.


Insert the main body will not have much room in the inside, but you can store the USB cable in a stack with the battery.
