          Pros

          • The charger has a total of four ways you can use it
          • The USB-A ports feature Quick Charge and the USB-C port actually features 30W of Power Delivery
          • There's an AC outlet that can be used to power appliances
          • Even though this power bank is rather large and heavy, it still maintains a power bank form factor rather than a power station

          Cons

          • The AC outlet is only a 2-prong one

          High capacity power banks have all sorts of things that lower capacity portable chargers would never have. Sure, you get more power capacity that you can use to charge more devices before having to recharge the power bank. It’s also about the amount of charging ports that you can use since higher capacity power banks tend to have more charging ports, and also more powerful charging ports, too.

          That’s definitely the case with this Suaoki D100 AC outlet portable charger. So the first thing that you’ll notice with this power bank is that it does indeed have an AC outlet, this isn’t just your regular type of power bank. So let’s see if an AC outlet power bank is the type of charger for you.

          Power

          Power Capacity:

          The power capacity of power banks that use AC outlets is almost always high and that makes sense. As using an AC outlet to power an appliance can burn into a lot of power capacity over a short period of time. So having a high capacity ensures that you’re still able to use the power bank for a long enough duration of time.

          So this Suaoki portable charger has a 26,800mAh power capacity, this is a lot of power but at the same time, for an AC outlet power bank to be using this much; it’s rather on the low side. However, we think that Suaoki actually made a good call, as making this power bank use a much higher power capacity would have to make it into a portable power station. Which is a lot larger and more difficult to carry around.

          Also, when you consider that this charger has three other output ports, with two USB-A ports and a USB-C port, the amount of power capacity still fits well with what the charger is capable of. First though, let’s see how much of the power capacity you’re actually able to use.

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

          Overall, you’re actually able to use about 20,000mAh of the power capacity and that’s still enough power to charge smartphones, tablets, and laptops to full power quite a few times. Depending on which one you’re charging. That said, when it comes to powering appliances and the power capacity, the charger has a 130W max output with its AC outlet, so you’re going to get about one hour of usage when it comes to using the AC outlet for power.

          Output Charging:

          Using this Suaoki D100 portable charger is a great experience and the reason for that is because it has a lot of ways to use it.

          AC Outlet:

          The main reason that you’re going to purchase this portable charger is that of the AC outlet, otherwise, you should just get a power bank without an AC outlet, and pay a lower price. The AC Outlet has a 130W max output, that said, you should still only use appliances that are capable of only using 100W of power. That’s because the 130W output is really only for surges of power when the appliance that you’re using requires it.

          So when it does come to using the 100W appliance, this means that you can power small fans, and also use a laptops chargers that uses a DC connection. For the most part, that’s really what this power bank is meant for, which is charging DC connection laptops, as the AC outlet itself is a 2-prong type.

          USB-C Power Delivery Port:

          Then there are the charging ports. This portable charger doesn’t just use any normal type of charger. Instead, it has a USB-C Power Delivery port. Power Delivery is a fast type of charging tech that’s used with the USB-C standard. Its fast-growing type of charging and since the USB-C standard of connection is now being used with many smartphones, tablets, and laptops, you can use this port to charge many USB-C compatible devices.

          This USB-C port has a 30W Power Delivery charging output, which is the standard speed when it comes to PD. It’s with this charging power that you’re able to charge all USB-C Power Delivery compatible smartphones at their max charging speed. You can also use this port to charge some USB-C compatible laptops like the base MacBook that uses USB-C.

          Just something to know is that you’ll, of course, have to use a USB-C to USB-C charging cable to use the USB-C port. Or you can use a USB-C to Lightning charging cable with this port to charge the iPhone X or iPhone 8 as they’re Power Delivery compatible.

          Another thing to know is that even though this power bank does feature Power Delivery, its 30W of power output may not be enough to charge more powerful USB-C PD compatible devices. As there are some laptops that use USB-C PD but require a higher power input in order to charge. Such as the Dell XPS 13, XPS 15, or the Razer Stealth Laptop.

          Two Quick Charge USB-A Ports:

          The two other output ports on this power bank are USB-A ports, and what’s special about these two ports is that they both use Quick Charge. Most of the time when it comes to power banks, there’s just a single port that’s use Quick Charge and the other port uses standard charging.

          So you can charge two Quick Charge compatible smartphones at their max charging speed, at the same time.

          Max Output:

          When it comes to using the max power of this Suaoki power bank, there are really only two modes that you can use it in.

          The first mode is with the AC outlet only being used and you can’t use any other of the other ports at the same time.

          On the other mode, you can use the USB-C port and the two USB-A Quick Charge ports.

          Input Charging:

          When it comes to recharging this power bank, there are two main options. You can either use the USB-C port or the DC input to recharge this power bank.

          When it comes to using the USB-C port to recharge this power bank, you can actually recharge it at Power Delivery speeds when you use a USB-C Power Delivery wall charger. Or you can simply use a regular wall charger and the power bank will charge at 5V/2.0A speed.

          The other option for recharging this power bank is using the DC input port. The way that you use DC input to recharge this power can be done three ways. You can either use the car charger adapter or AC adapter to recharge this power bank, both of which are included with this power bank. AC adapter has a recharge rate of 18V/2.0A.

          While the car charger has a recharge speed of 11V-14.5V/2.0A.

          The one other recharge method with the DC input is using a solar charger, and Suaku recommends that you use a 10W or higher Solar panel to charge this power bank. That is if you are using that method.

          Design

          Size and Weight:

          When a power bank has a 26,800mAh power capacity and also uses an AC outlet, then you can automatically assume that it’s a large power bank. That’s what this power bank is like, as it has a length of  7.2 inches, a width of 6.4 inches, and a thickness of 1.3 inches. The weight of this charger is also quite heavy at 2.6 Pounds.

          Of course, this isn’t your everyday type of power bank that you would take with you while on the move. It’s more like the power bank that you place into a backpack in case you would need it to power your laptop or charge your other devices. So in a way, you can take this with you while you’re going out, but placing it into a bag makes more sense.

          But hold it and walking around with the charger for a long duration of time isn’t something that you would do with this charger.

          Functional Components:

          When it comes to using this power bank, it’s quite simple.

          All of the charging ports and AC outlet are on the single side. If you want the use the AC outlet, there’s a switch to the left of it that you can switch to ON and then a Green light comes on which indicates that you’re ready to use it.

          The way that you can use the charging ports, is by having the AC outlet off, and press the power button all the way the right for recharging ports.

          At the top of the power bank is where you’ll find four Blue LED power capacity indicators.

          Build

          Structure and Material:

          The build quality of this power bank is great. As the silver part of the charger is made of Aluminum, and overall, even though it’s not a Rugged power bank, the charger is still quite sturdy. Just don’t drop it on the floor otherwise that can result in the power bank being damaged.

          Tech:

          On the tech side, if you’re powering an appliance for a long duration of time and the appliance requires 100W of the power supply. Then the charger will get a little warm, as that’s quite a lot of power for a power bank to be supplying. It’s something that’s not a concern but it does happen if you’re using the max power of the portable charger.

          Reliability

          The reliable for this Suaoki portable charger is great, as it uses an AC outlet to power appliances, and use laptops chargers. Not only can the AC Outlet be used to charge laptops, this power bank even has a PD port that can charge USB-C compatible laptops and charge other USB-C compatible devices.

          Also, if you have a Quick Charge compatible smartphone, you’re able to charge it at its max charging speed.

          So when it comes to its power, this charger absolutely dominates. That said, the unreliable part of this power bank is its large size and heavyweight.

          Summary:

          Power:

          It has a high power capacity, but most importantly, it’s the numerous ways that you can use this charger that make it very powerful.

          Design:

          The size of this charger is very large, and it’s heavy at 2.6 pounds. So it’s not the type of power bank that you’re able to hold for a long time.

          That said, it’s very easy to use with a Switch being used to use the AC outlet and a power button to use the USB-C port and two USB-A ports that use Quick Charge.

          Build:

          The build quality of this power bank is very good structurally, it does tend to use get a little warm if you’re using max or near the max power of the AC outlet, which is 100W.

          Reliability:

          The reliability of this Suaoki D100 portable charger is absolutely superb because it can power appliances and charge devices. The thing that we’re most surprised about is that the USB-C port actually features Power Delivery, so it can charge a few PD compatible devices that fit within the 30W power range.
