Power banks come with different features, with some having only a single port and fast charging, some having high capacities but no fast charging, and others having AC outlets that you can use to power small appliances. So there are specific portable chargers that have to fulfill different needs; however, if you’ve got various conditions for charging your devices, then you’re going to want a power bank that features a broader range of charging capabilities; this way, you can use the power bank for charging your various types of devices.
In this review, we’re looking at this Excitrus NitroCharge Pro 25,600mAh portable charger with many different fast charging ports, and it even has wireless charging at the top. This may be the only power bank you need because of its features.
The power capacity of the NitroCharge 120 is 26,500mAh, and that is an extraordinary amount of power to utilize. This high power capacity helps charge USB-C laptops or tablets that are already known to have large batteries; still, a high capacity is practically necessary if you want to charge most phones to full power multiple times. That’s because most phones now have higher capacity batteries to keep up with power demands processors and other features they have.
In this case, with a 26,500mAh power capacity, you can charge most laptops and tablets to full power about two times; that said, these total charge estimates are based on charging devices one at a time. You can charge up to four devices simultaneously with this power bank. If you do, the power capacity will drain much faster as it’s being directed to many devices simultaneously.
On the other hand, charging a phone will yield more full charges from this power bank as they have smaller batteries. However, as we mentioned, modern phones still have pretty large batteries now; with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra having a 5,000mAh battery, you’re going to fair about three or four total charges. Most phones, though, have a 4,000mAh battery that will allow you to charge them to full power for about four or five with this power bank.
Overall, you can expect to use this power bank for a few days without needing to recharge it, and that’s a lot better than using a mini power bank that you have to recharge every time you use it. High capacities do give you peace of mind.
The most impressive part of this power bank is the charging power you’re getting from the ports and the wireless charging. The Excitrus NitroChartge 120 has two USB-C Power Delivery ports, one USB-A Quick Charge port, and fast wireless charging at the top.
One of the USB-C PD ports has a 100W output, and the other has a 45W output. When charging laptops, we recommend using the 100W USB-C port because it allocates the most charging power when charging multiple devices simultaneously. That said, you can still charge a laptop via the 45W USB-C PD port, as we did with a Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 laptop, but then charging a Samsung Galaxy S21 via the 100W USB-C port caused the 45W USB-C port to slow down charging considerably.
So we then changed to charging the Lenovo Flex 5 laptop via the 100W USB-C port and the Galaxy S21 charge from the 45W USB-C port; this enabled the laptop to charge at its max speed, and the Galaxy S21 was able to charge super fast charge because both USB-C ports have Programmable Power Supply (PPS).
With the Lenovo laptop and the Galaxy S21 charging, we placed a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on the charging pad on top of the power bank, and the Note 9 was able to charge fast charge wirelessly, which means it’s charging at 10W. The wireless charging pad at the top can output 15W max. Even the Note 9 wirelessly charged the Lenovo laptop, and the Galaxy S21 did not change charging speeds.
Lastly, we connected a Samsung Galaxy A51 to the USB-A Quick Charge port with an 18W output, and the phone could fast charge. Ultimately, we could charge a Lenovo Flex 5 laptop, super fast charge a Galaxy S21, fast charge a Galaxy A51, and fast wirelessly charge a Galaxy Note 9 simultaneously.
The NitroCharge 120 portable charger from Excitrus is incredible, and it’s able to do all this fast charging because it has a 120W max output.
This power bank is only rechargeable via the 100W USB-C PD port, not the 45W USB-C port. However, this is a good thing because you can utilize different Power Delivery wall chargers to recharge this power bank at different speeds. Of course, using a 100W PD wall charger to recharge it would be ideal as that’s the max recharge rate. This power bank does not come with a PD wall charger. Included in the box is a USB-C to USB-C cable.
Size and Weight:
With all its charging power, this Excitrus portable charger is a bit on the bigger side, but you can be mobile with it as an everyday power bank. The charger has a length of 7.5 inches, a width of 3 inches, and a thickness of 0.9 inches. Not exactly a pocketable power bank, but you can comfortably hold it or place it in a bag.
When it comes to charging, you’re mostly going to be placing the power bank down and charging your devices.
Charging automatically starts when you plug a device into any of the ports, but there is a power button that you can press to show the remaining power capacity off to the side via an LCD. Also, you have to press the power button to activate wireless charging and then place your phone on the power bank.
Wireless charging on this power bank does come with a magnetic feature that gives phones a bit of grip. Magnetic capability is handy for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 users. Both iPhone models are compatible with MagSafe charging, so you don’t have to worry about those phones sliding off the pad even if the power bank is held vertically.
Structure and Material:
The build quality of this power bank is excellent, and we have no complaints. In general, the power bank is made of plastic and has a fabric covering it on top. The charging ports function well, and we found no flaws with this power bank. It’s not a rugged power bank, so remember not to drop it or expose it to water, as it can get damaged.
It’s built for everyday usage.
The power bank warms up when charging multiple devices, especially wireless charging. This isn’t a cause for concern as heat is always generated when charging anything, and the power bank is never hot.
If you have a USB-C chargeable laptop or phone, or in general, a USB-C chargeable device, then Exctrius NtiroCharge 120 portable charger will be reliable for you. It has two powerful USB-C Power Delivery ports, a USB-A Quick Charge port, and a 15W fast wireless charging pad; to top it all off, the power bank has a 120W max output that lets you fast charge four devices simultaneously.
A must if you don’t want compromises for fast, portable charging.
There’s enough power capacity to charge most smartphones, tablets, or laptops to full power multiple times. Charging power from the ports is equally impressive as the 25,600mAh power capacity. The power bank has two USB-C Power Delivery ports, with one outputting 100W and a 45W output. Additionally, the power bank has a USB-A Quick Charge port and fast wireless charging at the top.
The power bank size is more significant than lower-capacity power banks, but it’s still manageable to use daily.
The build quality of the power bank is good, and it has a fabric covering on top of its plastic build. Not rugged by any means but is meant for everyday usage.
This NitroCharge 120 portable charger is reliable for nearly all USB-C charging needs.
