Pros

  • Has a High Power Capacity that can last for days and recharge many device quite a lot of times
  • Fast charging speeds with each of its 3 charging ports being able to charge at 5V/2.4A. The max Output is 5.4 Amps.
  • Uses a LCD power capacity Display.

Cons

  • It's large and heavy so portability can be a problem for on-the-go purposes.
  • The Power button can accidentally be tapped easily.
  • Recharging is too slow.

High capacity power banks aren’t for the masses and that’s the plain truth.

Sure, they have lots of power, more than a normal amount of charging ports so you can charge multiple devices at the same time and the charging speeds are usually really good as well.

But then there’s the equivalent exchange side with power banks being large and heavy.

They’re not exactly portable then and if you’re in the market for a “power bank” then you’re going to have to more precise about what kind of power bank you want. Since even these large things are power banks and are still portable.

In this case, this Intocircuit power bank is on the higher end scale of what high capacity portable chargers have to offer, let’s take a closer look.

Power Capacity:

There’s lots of power with this power bank and we mean enough charging power as Anker’s PowerCore 26800.

With that said, this IntroCicuit power bank doesn’t use special batteries like LG or Panasonic ones that are usually able to give a better Output power capacity than ones that don’t use them.

Also, you have to take into account that this high capacity power bank use 3 charging ports, and the Max Output of the power bank is 5.4 Amps. So the more charging ports and power that you’re using, the less Output power capacity you’ll have.

Tons of Power to use for Smartphones & Tablets

For the most part, though, you’re going to want to charge 2 devices at once, and we’ll explain why in the “Output Charging” section. With 2 devices charging, you can expect an Output power capacity of 22,000mAh that you’ll be able to use.

It’s with this power capacity that allows you to have a ton of freedom since you can charge smartphones well over 8 times or maybe even more for smartphones that have small batteries. Even larger smartphones are perfect for charging as they can fair about 4 charges or more.

Then there are tablets that this power bank can handle as well. Charging Mini-sized tablets isn’t that much of a problem because it charges a Mini one about 2.5 times.

Charging full Sized tablets doesn’t hold too much trouble as you can charge one 1.5 times.

Overall, when you have a power capacity of 22,000mAh with a power bank you’re going to get a ton of use out of it and that’s why portable chargers like these are great to have while you’re traveling; because you’ll always have a stable source of power.

Output Charging:

This Intocircuit power bank uses 3 charging ports and we’re impressed with the power behind each of the charging ports, as well as the overall power that is provided.

Individual Charging Ports:

Each of the Output charging ports can supply a charging speed of 5V/2.4A. That’s a max standard charging speed and this means that they’ll charge any device that is not USB-C or Quick Charge compatible at their max charging speeds.

A charging speed of 2.4 Amps is especially useful for when you’re charging tablets like iPads since their max charging speeds are 5V/2.4A

Even if you’re charging USB-C or Quick Charge smartphones, this power bank does a good job at charging them at pretty good speeds either way.

The best thing, though, is that you can rest assured it’s a powerful charger and most of the devices you connect will be able to charge at either max charging speed or near them.

However, you must account for the Max Output that it can supply.

Overall Output:

The Overall Output that can be Outputted all at once is  5.4 Amps. This is great.

An Overall Output of 5.4 Amps means that you can charge 2 iPads at the same time at their max charging speed because at that point the overall charging speed is 4.8A.

Then if you choose to charge 3 iPads at the same time, the max charging speed of each port will be 5V/1.8A.

So if you’re charging 3 iPads at the same time they won’t be able to charge at their max charging speeds, but it’s still impressive nonetheless that all of them are charging beyond 1 Amp.

Ultimately this most likely means that if you’re charging 3 smartphones at the same time, then they will all be able to charge at their max charging speeds.

We know this power bank doesn’t exactly accommodate Quick Charge or USB-C users but it offers lots of charging power at its base and when something is built very well at the base, the whole thing tends to be good. That’s what’s happening here.

Input Charging:

Unfortunately, the recharging isn’t nearly as impressive as the Output charging.

This is because the power bank only has a single Micro-USB Input port that has a max charging speed of 5V/2.0A. If you’re using a 2 Amp wall charger, then the power bank can be recharged within 12-14 hours.

Most of the time, when power banks have a power capacity as high as this power bank does, then it usually a faster recharging design such as using 2 Micro-USB Input ports. Just take a look at this EasyAcc 26,000mAh Monster Power Bank.

Size and Weight:

It’s large and it’s heavy. This is what you can expect from many other portable chargers that have the same power capacity and charging capabilities.

The Intocircuit power bank has a length of 7.2 inches, a width of 3.4 inches, and a thickness of 1 inch. It’s a large one, and a heavy one as well with a weight of 1.1 pounds.

This isn’t the kind of portable charger that you’re going to be using in your hand since even holding it in your hand will be a cumbersome and difficult thing to do. So most of the time, it’s best to just place this into a bag and set it down on a surface when you want to use it.

Functional Components:

We like how the Intocircuit power bank is designed not with the way it looks but also how refreshing it is.

Most of the functional parts are on the same general side. On the short side, panel is where you’ll find the 3 USB Output charging ports, the Micro-USB input port, and a LED flashlight.

Multi-Functional Display

On top of the power bank is where there are LCD digital power capacity indicators that show the power capacity with 3 digits in a percentage format.

Then on top is where you’ll also find the power button and the LCD also features an “In” and “Out” label that is used to show when you’re using the Output and Input charging.

Charging automatically starts when you plug a device into the power bank, and that mainly leaves the power button with the function of checking the power capacity and turning on the flashlight by double-tapping the power button.

With that said, the power button is a little too beveled up and this causes the power button to be double-tapped accidentally when you have it in a bag and that can result in the flashlight turning on and wasting power.

The LCD power capacity display is very helpful as it lets you accurately see just how much power capacity is left than just 4 power capacity indicators.

We don’t know the benefit of having the “In” and “Out” indicators, but we found that Intocircuit is quite a big advocate of Pass-Through Charging since they mainly have those labels to show that Output and Input charging is happening at the same time.

Build

Structure and Material:

It’s made of plastic but it’s durable. We don’t mean durable in the way of dropping it, but it’s durable enough to be used every day without anything major happening to it. There are just 3 main pieces that the charge is made up of, with its large center body and the 2 side panels.

Tech:

With something that has such a large power capacity, you can bet it has safety tech that can keep you and your devices safe during charging. However, there’s not much else to say to make the power bank extraordinary since it doesn’t use any special batteries that can improve longevity.

Reliability

For the most part, we can say this is a very reliable power bank. Even though it doesn’t make use of special charging technology like USB-C or Quick Charge, it’s still able to accommodate those devices to a certain degree of fast charging.

For other, more standard devices, this power bank owns since each of the charging ports can deliver a Max Standard charging of 5V/2.4A.

When you couple the overall Output of 5.4A, then that means you can potentially have 3 devices charging at the same time with them all charging at or near their max charging speeds.

The power capacity is one of the most outstanding parts since it can be reliable for anyone that’s searching for a power capacity that can last days, weeks, or even months without needing a recharge.

With its power capacity, this Intocircuit portable charger can recharge smartphones, and tablets alike, multiple times over. Portability is the main thing that could be a problem as the charger is indeed large and heavy.

Summary

Power:

It has an Output power capacity of 22,000mAh, as a result, a lot can be done with it since you can charge many different devices, even large ones multiple times over.

Charging speeds are great, at least for the Output; since each charging port can Output 5V/2.4A and the Max Output of the power bank is 5.4A.

The recharging could use some work as a power bank with a power capacity of 26,800mAh shouldn’t just recharge using a 2 Amp Micro-USB Input port.

Design:

It’s large and heavy, that’s to be expected for most portables that have the same power capabilities.

It’s beautifully designed it has an LCD that aids in telling the power capacity more accurately, but the power button is too high and that can result in the flashlight accidentally turning on sometimes.

Build:

For the most part, the Intocircuit power bank has a solid build despite being made of plastic.

Reliability:

The reliability is for everyone, and even though it doesn’t make use of any fast and rising charging technologies; we’re impressed by the 2.4A charging speed that each port has, and the Max Output of 5.4A is equally impressive.
