Pros

  • 45W Power Delivery charging that can charge most Power Delivery compatible laptops, and can fast charge tablets and smartphones
  • The power bank has a very small size, and you're able to place this laptop charging power pocket into your pocket
  • This power bank comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable

Cons

  • The 9,600mAh power capacity that can provide a single full charge for most devices

Power Delivery charging has changed the way we charge our portable devices. So many devices that we use each day now have USB-C ports, and some of them are Power Delivery compatible so they’re able to charge at a faster charging speed.

The best part is that you can use any Power Delivery charger to charge USB-C chargeable devices, given that the charger outputs enough charging power.

In this review, we’re taking a look at this Excitrus 9,600mAh 45W Power Delivery Power Bank. With the use of Power Delivery also comes the ability to more easily charge your laptop while on the go, and this Excitrus power bank is the first that we’ve seen to have such a low capacity and yet use such a powerful Power Delivery port.

Power

Power Capacity:

The only odd part of this power bank and what we think to be a positive part of this Exctirus portable charger is that it has a 9,600mAh power capacity. This comes as a surprise because there are not many 45W Power Delivery power banks on the market that have such a low capacity, as most 45W PD power banks have at least a 20,000mAh power capacity.

However, there’s no denying that a 9,600mAh power capacity is on the rather low side, and with its powerful PD charging, you can expect to charge laptops with this power bank, not just smartphones.

With that said, you can get a single full charge for most laptops, like how we were able to get only a single full charge for a Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 laptop. We were also able to get a single full charge for a Microsoft Surface Go tablet.

When it came to charging smartphones, such as a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, this power bank did well with about 1.5 full charges.

Overall, the small power capacity does have its limits, but the equivalent exchange factor is the very small size, which we’ll get to later in this review.

Output Charging:

The charging is impressive with his power bank, and this is as surprising as the low power capacity because you wouldn’t expect such powerful charging from a 9,600mAh power bank.

This Excitrus power bank has a single 45W Power Delivery port, a Quick Charge USB-A port, and a 5V/2.1A (10.5W) USB-A port.

Charging stats for Google Pixel

45W of Power Delivery charging is exceptional, and we tested the Power Delivery port on three devices. The first device we charged was a Lenovo Flex 5, and this Excitrus power bank was able to charge at about 33W to 35W. This is the max charging speed of the laptop. You’re also able to charge USB-C Power Delivery Macbooks with this power bank.

We also charged the Surface Go tablet, which was able to charge at 22W to 25W, and we also charged a Galaxy Note 9 which was able to fast charge from the Power Delivery port, too.

The 45W Power Delivery port is the highlight of this power bank and it performs very well.

The Quick Charge port can fast charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones, such as the Galaxy Note 9 that we charged it with.

Input Charging:

Recharging this power bank is done through the same USB-C Power Delivery and you’re able to recharge the power bank at 45W. You need a 45W PD wall charger to do so, and we have to say that recharging this power bank at 45W is very fast. You’ll be waiting for about an hour only to get it to 80%.

Design

Size and Weight:

Easily our favorite part of this power bank is how small and lightweight it is. This is the smallest 45W Power Delivery power bank that you can currently find.

The charger has a length of 4.3 inches, a width of 2.5 inches, and a thickness of 0.9 inches. The weight of this power bank is 7 ounces.

It’s an extremely small charger that you can place into your pocket or easily hold, the fact that it’s able to charge laptops, tablets, and smartphones is amazing. We know that it may not seem like much, but we’re at a point where you don’t have to lug around a charging brick and hunt down a wall outlet when you’re in a library or a classroom.

Instead, you can take this Excitrus power bank out of your pocket and begin charging your laptop.

Functional Components:

The charger is sleek and easy to use.

All the charging ports are on a single side, and to the side is where you’ll find a digital power capacity indicator and a power button. The indicator has a lightning logo that turns on when the power bank is using Power Delivery or Quick Charge fast charging.

Structure and Material:

The build quality of this power bank is great. The charger is made of plastic, but it’s built for daily use and won’t be breaking apart under normal use. However, the main thing to be cautious of is not dropping the power bank or exposing it to water.

When recharging the power bank or charging a laptop via the Power Delivery port, the power bank does get a little warm, and this is likely due to its very small form factor. The power bank did not get hot during our testing. Also, when charging multiple devices at the same time, the max output of this charger is 25W, not 45W to prevent overheating.

Reliability

This is the most reliable low capacity Power Delivery power bank that you can own. The 45W Power Deliver charging covers a wide range of devices that you’re able to charge, such as laptops, tablets, or smartphones. You can also recharge it at 45W, too.

The other most reliable factor is a small size, as you’re able to take this Power Delivery laptop power bank anywhere in your pocket. A big plus of purchasing this power bank is that you get a USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable included in the box.

Summary:

Power:

The 9,600mAh power capacity is a bit limiting, but the powerful 45W Power Delivery port, Quick Charge port, and other additional USB-A port make up for it. You’re able to recharge the power bank at 45W, too.

Design:

Next to the output charging, the small size of this power bank is the next best thing as there are not many other 45W Power Delivery power banks that can fit into a pocket.

Build:

The charger is built well, just be careful not to drop it or expose it to water.

Reliability:

It’s the most reliable low capacity Power Delivery power bank that you can find, and this is mostly because of its ability to charge Power Delivery compatible laptops, and its inclusion of a USB-C to USB-C, and a USB-C to USB-A cable is great because you’re able to use the power bank right out of the box.
