We’ve done tons of reviews on power banks on this site, and at this point, there’s likely a portable charger for every person’s needs. There are small ones that may not have a lot of power capacity but are incredible; some power banks feature fast charging. In contrast, others don’t, and others are brimming on becoming portable power stations simply because they have so much power.

We’re looking at this Baseus Blade 100W power bank in this review. This Baseus portable charger may be the only one you’ll ever need if you find its charging power enough for your needs, and we think you will after knowing what it’s capable of.

Power

Power Capacity:

The power capacity of this Baseus Blade portable charger is 20,000mAh. Now there are a lot of power banks on the market that have higher capacities, but a 20,000mAh capacity is just enough to charge most portable devices. This power bank can charge up most phones to full power three times or more. Tablets and laptops with larger batteries will fair about a single full charge, and you’ll have some spare capacity to use later.

You’ll be able to depend on this power bank for more than a single day, and that’s a lot better than lower capacity power banks that require a recharge after a single use.

Output Charging:

The charging front of the Baseus Blade is what we view to be the best part of this charger. This power bank has a 100W max output, two USB-C Power Delivery ports, and two USB-A ports. If you’re charging from either USB-C 1 or USB-C 2 alone, you can use the full 100W if the device you’re charging accepts that much power.

Charging multiple devices splits the 100W output between the ports, and that’s why this Baseus Blade power bank is incredible, as you can still charge a laptop and fast charge another three devices if you want to. That’s what we did.

For our test, we began charging with a Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 laptop via USB-C 1, and it was able to charge at its max charging speed of about 30W. We then started charging a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 from the USB-C 2 port and an LG G7 from the USB-A 1 port; the Galaxy Note 9 and the LG G7 were able to charge fast charge while the Lenovo laptop was charging from this power bank.

We also tested a Samsung Galaxy S20 via USB-C 2, and it was able to Superfast charge and the means that USB-C 2 on this power bank features Programmable Power Supply (PPS) charging. Overall, the ability to charge a laptop and fast charge multiple other devices give you the best that a portable charger can offer.

Recharging the Baseus Blade power bank is almost as good as the output charging, and we say “almost” because it doesn’t have a 100W recharge rate. Instead, the power bank has a 65W max input. A 65W recharge speed is still fast for a 20,000mAh power capacity; of course, you have to use a 65W Power Delivery wall charger to recharge the power bank for the best recharge time.

This power bank doesn’t come with a wall charger, but you do get a USB-C to USB-C charging cable included in the box.

Design

Size and Weight:

The form factor of the Baseus Blade power bank is unlike anything we’ve seen compared to other power banks. It’s such a flat and thin power bank, and we love this design; as most 20,000mAh power banks take a more cylindrical shape, this power bank offers a different shape while still being just as portable.

The charger has a length of 6 inches, a width of 5 inches, and a thinness of 0.7 inches. The weight of the power bank is 1 pound. Not exactly a small power bank, but it’s still easier to carry in the hand and lightweight for everyday usage.

Functional Components:

Using this power bank is like most others, with charging automatically starting once you plug a device into the power bank. The one significant part not found on most power banks is that this one has an LCD that shows the remaining power capacity, charging output and time remaining until the power bank is fully depleted of power. Having all this different info displayed on LCD is awesome; sure, most won’t care about the charging output but having the timing of how long you can still use the power bank gives peace of mind.

Build

Structure and Material:

The build quality of this power bank is excellent; just as other Baseus products are, this one is built well. There are no loose parts, yes the entire power bank is made of plastic, but having it made of Aluminum Alloy would make it even more expensive and weigh heavier; the charger is meant for everyday use, but remember it doesn’t have rugged built, so be careful not to drop it from a high fall as that could break it.

Tech:

When we charged three devices simultaneously, the power bank did get warm but not hot, and that’s what we expected as chargers of all types always generate heat.

Reliability

If you have a USB-C laptop, this Baseus power bank is a must if you don’t mind the price. The charger has a high capacity, a 100W output, and four ports that include two USB-C PD ports and two USB-A Quick Charge ports. The 100W output is the driving force behind the reliability. It gives you a more comprehensive range of devices to charge, big or small, and you can simultaneously charge those more significant and small devices with this power bank.

Summary:

Power:

Charging is top tier from this Baseus slim blade power bank with a 100W max output and two USB-C ports, and two USB-A Quick Charge ports to utilize that high output power.

Design:

This power bank has the form factor, and we love it. Most power banks tend to be cylinder-shaped and quite thick.

Build:

The build quality is strong, and the charger only gets warm when charging multiple devices simultaneously.

Reliability:

If you have a USB-C laptop, you need this power bank.
