Eighty Plus 10,000mAh USB-C Power Bank
- You charge either your standard charging device or USB-C compatible smartphone at max charging speeds.
- The recharging is fast with the power bank being able to recharge at 3 Amps and full recharge within 3.5 to 4 hours.
- It's small and portable. Really Slim so it can fit into your pocket.
- The power bank is more meant for USB-C smartphones users.
- Power Capacity burn quite a lots during charging.
We’re getting to a point where owning power banks that use special charging tech Quick Charge and USB-C is practically the norm.
This is because more and more people are purchasing devices that use this type of charging technology simply because of its faster charging. Faster to charge the devices like smartphones that are compatible with the technology and faster to recharge the power bank that provides the power.
However, there aren’t too many power banks that use USB-C quite yet, but at Charger Harbor we’re trying to find and review as many as we can.
This is the Eighty Plus 10,000mAh USB-C power bank that makes use of very fast charging speed, and it has some really high standards that future power banks will have to live up to as well.
The Eighty Plus power bank has an initial rating power capacity of 10,000mAh and that can change with its Output power capacity because this portable charger has some really fast charging.
The faster the charging the power bank has, the more power that will be lost during charging because a conversion of energy is happening.
This is because the power bank makes use of Quick Charge 3.0 and USB-C charging, and we’re going to assume that you’re going to make use of those 2 types. With those in use, the Eighty Plus portable charger is able to provide an Output power capacity of about 7,000mAh.
Also, with a power bank this slim, it also uses Lithium Polymer batteries which can cause poor conversion rates as well.
We give the Eighty Plus power bank credit, though, it does well with its Output power capacity being able to provide enough power to charge most smartphones 4 times or more.
With that said, since this power bank is mainly geared towards smartphones that use USB-C or Quick Charge, those kinds of smartphones usually have a larger battery capacity and you’ll most like be able to get 2.5 charges.
That’s still a lot of power though because those kinds of smartphones like the Google Pixel and Galaxy S7 are able to last very long with just a single charge.
If you’re looking to charge tablets with this power bank, it can be done. Charging Mini tablets like the iPad Mini 2 and 4 are able to reach their full power capacities, but that’ll take the entire power capacity of the power bank. If you’re aiming to charge a Full-Sized tablet, then good luck, as it’ll charge them about 60% of the way through only.
Most USB-C power banks, including this one, are mainly meant for smartphones as the charging technology can be put to the test the most there.

The charging power is where the Eighty Plus power bank shines the most as you’ll be able to charge your Quick Charge 3.0, 2.0 and USB-C compatible devices at their max charging speeds.
Quick Charge 3.0 Port:
The Quick Charge 3.0 port is able to provide Quick Charge speed if you’re using a Quick Charge compatible device with it. If done so, the charging speed is very fast with the max charging speed being 5V/3.0A.
Even when charging is slowed down for a Quick Charge compatible device it still remains fast, because when Amperage goes down to 2 Amps then Voltage is increased to 6.5-9V, and when Amperage goes down to 1.5 Amps, then Voltage goes even higher to 9-12V.
This is why Quick Charge is so helpful since charging is always constantly fast even with lower standards.
The Quick Charge 3.0 port can also charge standard charging devices that are not compatible with Quick Charge at their Max charging speeds since it can also Output 5V/2.4A. So you can charge tablets like iPads at their max charging speeds.
The USB-C port can be used as either an Input and Output charging ports. For now, though, we’ll be talking about it being an Output port.
To use the USB-C port as an Output port, you must use a USB-C to USB-C charging cable. Also, the USB-C port can also be used to charge USB-C compatible devices, like the Google Pixel, One Plus 3 and many other USB-C compatible smartphones on the market.
When that’s done, the USB-C port is able to offer a charging speed of 5V/3.0A.
The USB-C port can also be used as an Input charging port, you’ll just need a USB-A to USB-C charging cable to use the port as an Input for recharging.
You can also use the more commonly used Micro-USB port to recharge the power bank, but for the most part, you’re going to want to use the USB-C port to recharge the Eighty Plus power bank because it’ll recharge it faster.
If you’re using the USB-C to recharge the power bank, it is vital that you use either a 2.4 Amp or Quick Charge Wall charger to provide the most power. When that’s done, the USB-C portable charger is able to recharge within 3.5-4 hours. A very fast recharge time.
Using the Micro-USB Input port to recharge the power bank is also pretty good and if you’re using an either a 2.4 Amp or Quick Charge wall charger then you can expect a full recharge of 5-6 hours.

Size and Weight:
It’s a really small power bank, and we mean that it’s so portable that you can take it with you on-the-go. However, the weight of the portable charger may be a hindrance to some, for the most part, though, it’s a free flyer.
The length of the Eighty Plus power bank is 5.8 inches, it has a width of 2.9 inches, and a thickness of 0.5 inches. We basically consider it to be a Slim power bank because you can easily fit this portable charger into your pocket, and we found it best to fit it into your back pocket if possible.
It’s quite a dense power bank at a weight of 9.4 ounces with all of its weight being packed into such a small area, but for the most part, you’re still going to be able to hold it and charge your smartphone while you’re using it.
It’s very easy to use the power bank since all of the functional parts are on the single side. All of the functional parts are on a side panel, and that’s where you’ll find the USB-C, Quick Charge, and Micro-USB port, as well as the Power button and 4, LED power capacity indicators.
Charging does not start automatically so you have to press the power button to begin charging and charging stops for your device once they have reached their full power. It’s easy to use power button that is designed to put power to use as much as possible.
Structure and Material:
The main center body structure of the power bank is made of Aluminum Alloy and the 2 side panels on the side are made of plastic. It’s a well-built power bank that has all of its parts well placed and even though it’s no rugged power bank it still does a great job at holding itself together even with daily use.
On the tech side, things could be better but then again they could be worse. Of course, like many other power banks, this one uses safety tech to keep charging safe for you and your device.
The the rest of the tech build is the fast charging that this power bank has and its use of Lithium Polymer batteries. We won’t knock it for its use of Polymer batteries, though, because the main reason it uses those batteries is to make itself thin and portable.
