USB PD compatible ultra-large capacity 26800mAh mobile battery 'Anker PowerCore + 26800 PD' review that can also charge Nintendo Switch and MacBook

Equipped with a port compatible with the USB power supply standard '

USB Power Delivery (USB PD)' that enables quick charging with a voltage of up to 100V from Anker, an ultra-large capacity 26800mAh mobile battery that charges not only mobile devices but also Nintendo Switch and MacBook ' PowerCore + 26800 PD ' and 'PowerCore Speed 20000', an upgrade model of ' PowerCore Speed 20000 QC ' that supports Quick Charge 3.0 as well as output, are available from Monday, August 14, 2017. The actual high-performance battery that seems to cross the boundaries of 'mobile battery' has arrived at the GIGAZINE editorial department, so I actually tried using it.

'PowerCore + 26800 PD' and 'PowerCore Speed 20000 QC' that arrived at the editorial department are this.

I will open it immediately.

◆ Anker PowerCore + 26800 PD
This is PowerCore + 26800 PD. In addition to the main unit, a quick charger, USB cable (USB-C / USB-C), USB cable (USB-A / Micro-USB), and a dedicated travel pouch are included.

The main body of PowerCore + 26800 PD looks like this. It follows the conventional black-based design, but it has a size that makes you confused as 'mobile battery ...?'.

When I take it in my hand, it has a large capacity of 26800mAh, and I feel a lot of weight.

When you press the power button, you can check the remaining battery level with the LED indicator.

Input / output is USB 3.0 port x 2, USB PD port x 1. Both USB 3.0 ports are compatible with Anker's proprietary high-speed charging technology '

PowerIQ ', allowing you to quickly charge your mobile device.

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

There are no logos or buttons on the back.

The actual weight is 581g. The dimensions are approximately 180 x 80 x 24 mm.

When I charged my Nexus 5X with a USB PD port, it said 'quick charging', just like when I charged it with a Quick Charge 2.0 compatible charger.

If you use the USB PD port, you can charge not only mobile devices but also Nintendo Switch that requires a USB PD compatible charger. However, it seems that it can not be charged when the Nintendo Switch is connected to HDMI like 'TV mode'. Also, as a guideline for capacity, it is possible to charge iPhone 7 10 times or more, tablet terminal 2 times or more, MacBook and MacBook Pro (13 inch) 1 time or more.

The USB-C quick charger required to quickly charge the main unit from the USB PD port is designed close to the battery.

If you plug it from a USB-C quick charger into a USB PD port, you can fill up the 26800mAh capacity in just 4.5 hours. Considering that the '

PowerCore II 20000 ', which can quickly charge the battery by inserting two USB cables, has the performance of charging 20000mAh within 6 hours, the PowerCore + 26800 PD compatible with USB PD is smart and You can see that the battery can be charged faster.

It looks like this when you put it in a dedicated travel pouch.

Even if you put the main body in the pouch, there is a little room at the entrance, so you can also put the USB cable together and carry it.

◆ Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 QC
Then opened 'PowerCore Speed 20000 QC'. Inside was the main unit, travel pouch, and Micro-USB cable.

Input / output is USB port for output x 2 (Left Power IQ / Right Quick Charge 3.0), Micro-USB port for input.

The input / output specifications are as follows. The QC 3.0 input is '5-7V / 2A, 7-9V / 2A, 9-12V / 1.5A' and the QC 3.0 output is '5-8V / 3A, 8-10V / 2.4A, 10-12V / 2A'. .. The normal output is '5V / 2A'.

'Anker' logo and LED indicator on the front.

You can check the remaining battery capacity by pressing the button on the side.

There was a Quick Charge 3.0 logo on the back.

The actual weight was 359g, and the dimensions were about 166 x 62 x 22mm. Compared to the previous model, it has succeeded in making it 30% more compact with the same capacity.

I took it in my hand. Compared to PowerCore + 26800 PD, it has a slimmer and more compact impression, and doesn't feel much weight.

By arranging the credit card sizes '

PowerCore 10000 ', 'PowerCore Speed 20000 QC' and 'PowerCore + 26800 PD' side by side, you can see the feeling of each size.

When I used the

Nextbit Robin with Quick Charge 2.0 as a Quick Charge port, it said 'quick charging' without any problem. The point of PowerCore Speed 20000 QC is that not only the output but also the input is compatible with Quick Charge 3.0. In this way, not only can you quickly charge a smartphone that supports Quick Charge, but if you charge the battery body from a charger that supports Quick Charge, you can charge it in about 5 hours and 40 minutes, which is twice as fast as the previous model. As a guideline for capacity, it seems that iPhone 7 can be charged about 7 times, Galaxy S8 4 times or more, and iPad Pro (9.7 inch) released in 2017 about 2 times.

It looks like this when you put it in the travel pouch.

If you put the main body in, there will not be much room inside, but you can stack the USB cable with the battery.
