          • Makes use of five ports, with one including Quick Charge

          Cons

          High capacity power banks are one the most useful types of portable charger that you can own and the main reason for that is because of the amount of power that they have. This is true for the power capacity and also for the charging power. Most of them make use of powerful charging technologies such as Quick Charge and in this case what we’re going to be talking about, USB-C  Power Delivery. The importance of Power Delivery comes from the fact that it’s starting to be used with small devices such as smartphones and also with larger devices like laptops and tablets because of how powerful it is.

          This PoderCamino 98Wh Power Deliver portable charger is one of the most powerful Power Delivery power banks no the market. The charging power in terms of Power Delivery is quite amazing and it also features another four ports with it. So let’s see if it’s worth getting.

          Power

          Power Capacity:

          There are high capacity power banks, then there are very high capacity power banks and that’s basically what this PoderCamino charger features with its 26,800mAh power capacity. This is the starting power capacity with this power bank, so let’s see how much of it you’re actually able to use for charging devices once the power has been converted during charging.

          3.7 x 26,800 = 99,160 / 5 = 19,832

          For the most part, you’re actually able to use about 20,000mAh of output capacity from this power bank and even though this is quite a bit lower than the initial power capacity, it’s still lots to use. Most smartphones that have a 3,000mAh battery will be able to charge to their full power about 6 times.

          Then when it comes to charging larger devices such as tablets and laptops with this power bank, which is likely the reason that you’re getting this charger, then it can fair about 2 to 3 full power charges. That said, it depends on how large the battery of the laptop is.

          Overall, you can expect a multiple full power recharges done for small and large devices.

          Output Charging:

          So there are a total of five charging ports on this power bank to charge your devices, and this is absolutely amazing, as most similar capacity power banks have two or three ports. This many ports on a very high capacity power bank is rare, but here it is.

          Four of the ports are USB-A ports on this charger are standard ones that have a 5V/2.4A charging speed. All the USB-A ports share a 30W charging rate, so you can charge three devices among the three standard ports and still have the charging speed be quite fast between all of them.

          The one other USB-A port is a Quick Charge port, so it can fast charge a Quick Charge compatible smartphone at its max charging speed. You can still charge Non-Quick Charge compatible smartphones with the Quick Charge port, and the port will simply default to a 5V/2.4A charging speed.

          So when it comes to standard USB charging, this power bank has it all covered.

          USB-C Power Delivery

          Then there’s the main reason to get this power bank and that would be the because of the USB-C Power Delivery port. Most Power Delivery portable chargers have a Power Delivery charging rate of 30W or 45W. However, when it comes to charging more powerful Power Delivery compatible laptops that actually require more charging power, then either of those charging rates isn’t useful.

          This PoderCamino Power Delivery portable charger actually has a whopping 65W Power Delivery charging speed, and this basically places a very large blanket of the types of laptops that it’s able to charge. You’ll have no problems charging laptops from the USB-C MacBook, the HP Spectre x360 and Elite X2, the Dell XPS 15 actually requires that you use a 60W Power Delivery charger, and so this is one of the few power banks on the market that allows you to recharge it.

          Those are just a few though, the products page for this PoderCamino power bank has a much larger list on the compatibility for the laptops that you can use with it.

          Input Charging:

          Most of the time when it comes to USB-C Power Delivery portable chargers, you’re able to use the same Power Delivery output as an input port to recharge the power bank. In this case, this power bank actually makes use of a completely separate 65W USB-C Power Delivery input port to recharge the power bank.

          So if you want to recharge the power bank at it max charging speed then you should use a Power Delivery wall charger with it, and below we have some recommendations that are able to come close to recharge the power bank at its max charging speed.

          Design

          Size and Weight:

          With so much power, this power bank is quite large, but not so large to the point that you won’t be able to take anywhere that you want. It has a length of 7 inches, a width of 3 inches and a thickness of 0.8 inches. The weight of the charger is 15 Ounces.

          So the charger is actually quite thin in terms of being a high capacity power bank, and you can actually fit this charger into a back pocket. That said, fitting it into a pocket isn’t the best way to be portable with it, and we found that having it in a backpack or simply holding it and then setting it down to use it was the best way to use it.

          Functional Components:

          When it comes to using this power bank, it’s very easy as all the functional parts are on the same time, and that would include all the charging ports, four Blue power capacity indicators, and the power button.

          You do have to press the power button to begin charging and it’s also used to check how much power is left with the power indicators.

          Build

          Structure and Material:

          In terms of build quality, this power bank is made of Aluminum with its shell and the charging ports feel great to use. This came as somewhat of a surprise and the reason for that is because this comes from a rather small brand, and we thought it would feature lower quality materials and build. That’s not the case here and what you get is a power bank that can match up to larger brands.

          Tech:

          With so much charging power to be used, this power bank can tend to get a little warm if you’re using the Power Delivery port at or near its max power for a long duration of time, Other than that, using the USB-A ports alone will not make the power bank warm.

          Reliability

          If you have a USB-C Power Delivery compatible laptop, then you may want to consider getting this PoderCamino power bank. That’s because the Power Delivery charging rate of 65W is something that not many other Power Delivery portable chargers have, and so you get a faster charging speed for the laptop that you’re charging.

          Summary:
