When it comes to purchasing a power bank, it’s always a requirement to look deeper because portable chargers may look good on the surface, but when you take a closer look to see what it has, it may not seem as impressive.
There are quite a lot of specifications that you have to know because it’s the small things that are going to make or break your experience with a power bank.
This is the Kisreal 26,800mAh power banks, and it boasts a lot of things that would make someone purchase it right away because of its massive power capacity.
Not only that but it also has 3 Output USB ports and it also has 3 Input ports for recharging.
However, let’s take a closer look to see what all this means for this Kisreal power bank and if it’s as good as it looks and sounds.
Similar Power Banks:
The power capacity of this power bank is massive at 26,800mAh and along with the 3 USB ports, you would think that the conversion of power during charging for this power capacity would be pretty bad.
Well, that’s not the case here and the reason for that is because the Max Output is 5V/2.4A. Yes, this portable charger has 3 USB Ports and it has a 2.4A Max Output.
We’ll get into more detail about the Output when we get to the Output section but a Max Output of 2.4 Amps is going to give you an average conversion rate.
This might sound like a good thing, with not losing a lot of power capacity during charging but it’s not the best thing in terms of charging speeds.
3.7 x 26,800 = 99,160 / 5 = 19,872

Most of the time you’re going to be receiving an Output power capacity of 19,800mAh that you’re actually able to use and that is still a really good capacity.
It’s with this power capacity that you’re able to charge right through any smartphone on the market multiple times to full power.
An iPhone 7 can charge to full power about 10 full times, a Google Pixel XL with its 3,450mAh battery capacity can charge to full 5 times and a Samsung Galaxy S8 can charge to full 6 times.
So if you do plan on charging a smartphone with this power bank, then the power capacity will give you a very good experience.
Power Capacity for Tablets
The same thing can be said about the power capacity when it comes to charging tablets because the tablets such as an iPad Mini 2 can charge to full power 2.5 times, and an iPad Mini 4 can charge to full power 3 times.
An iPad Air 2 with its 7,340mAh power capacity can charge to full about two times.
Overall, the power capacity of this Kisreal power bank is really good and can last you for days or maybe even weeks depending on how you’re using the power bank.
There are 3 USB ports as I mentioned earlier, and even though a 26,800mAh power bank with 3 USB ports sounds impressive, it’s charging abilities are not nearly as impressive.
Speed for Each Port
2 of the USB ports has a charging speed of 5V/2.0A, which is pretty good as a 2 Amp charging speed can charge most devices at or near their max charging speeds. Then the one other USB port has a speed of 5V/1.0A and that is slow charging speed.
What doesn’t make sense with this power bank is how the Max Output of the Kisreal portable charger is 5V/2.4A.
So you can’t use the max power of two ports at the same time because it’s capped at 2.4 Amps. If you’re using both of the 5V/2.0A USB ports at the same time, then each of them will be able to output only 5V/1.2A.
If you’re using 3 of the USB ports at the same time, then the charging speed of each of them will be 5V/0.8A, and that charging speed is very slow.
The main problem here is that the Max Output of this power bank is way too low for what the power bank is offering; which is 3 USB ports with some good individual charging speeds.
If the Max Output would have been 4.8A then that would make a lot more sense because you would be able to charge two ports at their max potential.
If you find value in charging 3 devices at once with this power bank, then it does that very well at least, it’s just that when you’re charging 3 devices at once, the charging speeds will not be very good for the devices that are charging.
The Input also has 3 options for recharging the power bank: it has a Micro-USB, Type-C, and a Lightning Input for recharging the power bank.
The Micro-USB and Type-C Input have a 5V/2.0A recharging speed and the Lightning Input has a 5V/1.5A recharging speed.
Unfortunately, you can’t use multiple Input ports at the same time and have to use one at a time to recharge the power bank.
The use of lots of Input options is to make the power bank Universal. To recharge the power bank as fast as possible, you must use a 2.4A USB wall charger or higher and that will result in 8 hours full recharge time.
Size and Weight:
The Kisreal power bank is quite large and heavy; it’s to be expected with something that has a 26,800mAh power capacity and has 3 Output/Input ports.
The length of it has 7.7 inches, it has a width of 3.7 inches, and a thickness of 0.55 inches.
It’s a very thin power bank because it uses Lithium Polymer batteries and because of that, it makes the power bank easier to hold. With that said, what makes the power bank less likely to be held in your hands for long periods is its 1 pound weight.
It can be taken anywhere, but most of the time this power bank is going to be set down and used.
All of the functional parts of the power bank are close together.
On the short side is where there are 3 USB ports, a Type-C Input, and a Lightning Input.
On one long side, there’s the Micro-USB Input, and on the opposite long side of the power, bank is where there are 4 Blue LED power capacity indicators and a power button.
Charging does not start automatically, so you must press the power button to begin charging.
Structure and Material:
The physical build quality of the power bank is quite good as it has a rubber placed on its top and bottom and the white siding is made of plastic. It holds well and there aren’t any parts that are going to come loose.
On the tech side, the power bank does hold quite well and there are no heating problems even when you’re charging 3 devices at once, although that can mostly be attributed to the fact that the Max Output is only 2.4A.
The Kisreal power bank is good but it falls short in one of the major areas and that would be its charging speed.
The power capacity is good even with its being quite high after conversion and you’re able to charge smartphones and tablets to full power multiple times with just a single full charge of the Kisreal power bank.
However, its 3 USB ports are very misleading because the capabilities of each of its are quite good but the Max Output of the power bank is bad.
The power capacity of this Kisreal power bank is one of the best features that it has, however, when it comes to its actual charging capabilities such as USB Output ports and it’s recharging, the power bank is more about quantity rather than quality.
With such a high power capacity, the Kiseal power bank is very large and heavy but it’s at least slim.
The build quality of the power bank is quite good with its structure and also with its tech capabilities.
On the reliable side of things, the power bank delivers when it comes to its power capacity, however, the Max Output simply isn’t high enough for fast charging when you’re charging multiple devices at once.
Specs of the Kisreal Power 26,800mAh Power Bank:
- Power Capacity: 26,800mAh
2 USB Port: 5V/2.0
1 USB Port: 5V/1.0A
Max Output: 3.0A
Micro-USB and Type-C Input: 5V/2.0A
Lightning Input: 5V/1.5A
- LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators
- Size: 7.7 x 3.7 x 0.55 inches
- Weight: 1 Pound
The Kisreal power bank has a lot to offer but just because it’s offering a lot does not mean that it holds quality.
The power capacity is the main attraction because it’s able to charge smartphones and tablets to full power multiple times.
However, the main flaw that it has is its slow charging speed. It has a 2.4 Amp Max Output and yet it has 3 USB Output Ports. It has 3 Input ports and yet you can only use one at a time.
This portable charger has lots of greatness that it could be capable of, but it doesn’t bring it all out.
