Pros

  • Has a Very High Power Capacity that can last for days
  • Each port is able to output 5V/2.4A and it has a overall max output of 6 Amps

Cons

  • Does not feature Quick Charge and is quite large and heavy

Most of the time when it comes to high capacity power banks, they tend to use special charging tech such as USB-C, Quick Charge and some of them even use DC ports such as Vinsic’s 30,000mAh portable charger.

That said, it’s not always the case as there are plenty of people that just want a plain and powerful charging experience.

That’s what this RAVpower 32,000mAh portable charger has to offer as it’s optimal in basically every way when it comes to standard charging.

Power Capacity:

The power capacity is very high with charger as it has 32,000mAh of initial power.

We’re using the word “initial” as we usually do with our reviews as the 32,000mAh of power capacity isn’t what you’re really going to be receiving as the power capacity is going to be going through a conversion during charging.

3.7 x 30,000 = 111,000 / 5 = 22,200

For the most part, you’re going to be receiving 22,200mAh of Output power capacity that will be used to charge your devices to full power.

This is still a lot of power though and can definitely give you lots of full charges for smartphones, tablets and any other USB chargeable devices.

Just something to remember though is that if you’re charging numerous devices at once then the power capacity will be split up, but even then, this portable charger has enough power to charge lots of devices to their full power at the same time too.

Overall, there’s power to last you for a week depending on how you’re using this portable charger.

Output Charging:

Then there’s the charging speed with this 32,000mAh RAVPower portable charger and this is basically the best part of this charger.

That’s because there are 3 USB charging ports and each of the ports has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A.

It’s enough power to charge most standard devices (which are devices not Compatible with Quick Charge) to charge at their max speeds such as smartphones, tablets like iPads and most Samsung Galaxy Tablets too.

The max output of the charger is 6A which is another great part, as you can use 3 of the charging ports at the same time with the max output being reached and each of the ports would still be able to output 5V/2.0A.

Even though you can’t use the max power of each of the three ports at the same time, you can come close which is something that not too many other portable chargers with 3 USB ports are able to do.

That said, if you do want to use the max output of multiple ports at the same time, then you can do so with two USB ports as the max output would only be 4.8 Amps out of the 6 Amp max output.

Input Charging:

The recharging portion of this portable charger is pretty good, but it could be better.

It uses a single Micro-USB input port that has a recharge speed of 5V/2.4A and that is quite good for a single port and it makes sense to have that as a max recharge speed for a 32,000mAh portable charger that has a single input port.

However, it’s vital that you use a 2.4A USB wall charger to recharge this power bank as it will take about 13-14 hours for a full recharge.

Using a wall charger anything lower than 2.4 Amps will result in longer recharging times. Just take a look below:

5V/2.4A Wall Charger: 13-14 Hour

5V/2.0A Wall Charger: 17-18hrs

5V/1.0A Wall Charger: 30-31hrs

A better recharging design could have been the use two recharging ports that EasyAcc power banks tend to use very well by using two Micro-USB input ports.

Take, for example, their MegaCharge 16,750mAh power bank that uses a USB-C and Micro-USB input that can both be used at the same time.

Design

Size and Weight:

With a 32,000mAh power capacity and the use of 3 USB charging ports, you best believe that this charger is going to be large and heavy.

That’s the way it’s supposed to be as the power capacity of a power bank and its size/weight are both correlated. That is why this charger has a length of 7.7 inches, a width of 4 inches and a thickness of 1.3 inches. The weight of this charger is 1.3 pounds.

Definitely not a portable charger that you’re going to be fitting into your pocket and you’re not going to want to hold this in your hand long periods of time.

That said, you can hold it while taking it to a location, setting it down and using it there. Placing this in a backpack is also a great option too.

Functional Components:

Using this portable charger is straightforward. All three of the USB ports are on a single side, on one long side is where there’s the Micro-USB input port, on the opposite is where the power button is. Then at the top is where there are 4 Blue LED power capacity indicators.

You have to press the power button to begin charging and the LED power indicators turn on for a few seconds then turn off.

You can press the power button to check how much power is remaining.

Build

Structure and Material:

The portable charger durable as it just uses two large top and bottom casings to make the charger whole, and the entirety of the charger is made of plastic.

The casing has a Fire resistant coating just in case overheating does occur to make sure it doesn’t cause any wildfires.

Tech:

On the tech side, this portable charger keeps everything cool. As even when you’re charging 3 devices at once, there’s no overheating at all. Sure, the charger does get a little warm if you’re charging 3 devices at once for a long duration, but that is normal.

Reliability

This is a very reliable high capacity portable charger that does an optimal job at keeping the charging quality great.

It might not have Quick Charge or USB-C but that’s kind of what makes reliability more universal as this portable charger is going to be very useful for anyone that needs a lot of power when it comes to a portable charger.

That said, if you do need a more power specific portable charger, there are high capacity power banks that do feature techs such as Quick Charge and USB-C.

However, this RAVPower 32,000mAh power bank delivers a strong portable charging experience at its base with the best standard Output charging, a good single input recharging speed and a large size and heavy weight that you can expect.

Summary:

Power:

Lots of power to use for a week’s worth of use and three USB ports that are able to offer plenty of power individually and altogether with a max output of 6A.

Design:

It’s a large and heavy power bank as it has a very high power capacity, and therefore it’s meant to be set down and used. It has very easy functionality though.

Build:

The build quality of this portable charger is solid and there are no serious overheating issues at all.

Reliability:

It’s a highly reliable portable charger, and even though it doesn’t feature any fast changing tech, it does still have very powerful tech at its base with lots of power and powerful individual and overall charging power.
