There are quite a few Power Delivery portable chargers on the market and if you’re someone that owns a Power Delivery compatible device, then a power bank with PD is definitely something you should consider purchasing. As USB-C Power Delivery charging is now becoming more common with many of the portable devices that we use. With some smartphones using Power Delivery and there are now, even more, larger devices such as laptops and tablets that also use Power Delivery.

We’re here to review his Zendure A6PD 20,100mAh Power Delivery portable charger. This charger has a higher Power Delivery speed than just your regular Power Delivery charger, so let’s see if it’s worth the increase in power.

Power

Power Capacity:

The power capacity of this Zendure A6PD portable charger is still considered high capacity but at the same time when it comes to Power Delivery potable chargers, they usually have more than this one has. That said, the 20,100mAh power capacity on this charger is still enough to charge many types of devices to their full power a few times over.

First though, let’s see how much output power capacity you’re actually able to use from the initial power capacity of this charger.

3.7 x 20,100 = 74,370 / 5 = 14,874

4.2 Full Charges

Overall, you’re really going to be able to use about 15,000mAh of power capacity to charge your devices. This is still a fair amount and can charge most smartphones that feature Power Delivery with 3,000mAh of battery capacity about five times to their full power. Charging larger devices such as tablets and laptops, which is the way that most users will use this power bank for, will result in fewer charges because of larger batteries on those devices.

That said, you should still be able to get about two full charges for something like a MacBook or a Chromebook.

Output Charging:

The charging from this power bank can be done from two ways.

USB-C Power Delivery Port

 

The first charging method is the main reason that you’re going to be purchasing this power bank in the first place; which would be the USB-C Power Delivery port. The Power Delivery charging speed on most Power Delivery portable chargers is 30W, which is still a lot of power, but that’s not the limit, and this Zendure power bank goes further.

As the Power Delivery port on this power bank has a 45W output, and this is very useful if you have a laptop or tablet that requires that much power to charge. Or if a certain device can charge faster with 45W, than it can with 30W. There are laptops on the market that require a certain amount of Power Delivery power to charge and if the power is lower than the minimum then they simply won’t charge.

One laptop would be the Razer Blade Stealth laptop, which requires a 45W charging speed, so a regular 30W Power Delivery charger won’t charge it. However, this Zendure power bank will. So if you need more than your average Power Delivery charging speed, then this Zendure power bank is definitely the way to go.

Of course, charging Power Delivery compatible smartphones is also possible with this power bank and it will charge them at their max charging speed. You can also charge the iPhone X and iPhone 8 at Power Delivery speeds (max speed) if you use a Lightning to USB-C charging cable, as both of them are actually Power Delivery compatible.

USB-A Port:

The other output port on this power bank is the USB-A port, which is more of a universal port that you can use while you’re charging your Power Delivery compatible device. This port has a standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A, which is still quite fast in terms of standard charging.

Input Charging:

There are two ports that you can use to recharge this power bank. There’s a Micro-USB input port that has a recharge speed of 5V/2.4A. While the other input and with the faster recharging option is the USB-C Power Delivery port that you can use to recharge this Zendure power bank at its max charging speed. However, to recharge this power bank at Power Delivery speeds you’re going to have to use a Power Delivery wall charger, which is something that this power bank does not come with. We recommend Baseus 45W USB-C Power Delivery wall charger to recharge this Zendure power bank at max speed.

Design

Size and Weight:

The size of a high capacity power bank is always going to be larger than low capacity ones, and it’s definitely the case with Power Delivery portable chargers in general. With this power bank having a length of 6.4 inches, a width of 3.1 inches, and a thickness of 0.9 inches. The weight of the charger is 13.1 Ounces. You can still take this power bank anywhere that you want, it’s just unlikely that you’ll be placing this charger into your pocket, and most of the time you’re just going to be placing the power bank down and charging your devices.

Functional Components:

When it comes to actually using his power bank, it’s very simple.

All the ports are on a single side, and the two other functioning parts of this power bank are on the long side, The two other parts are the four Blue LED power capacity indicators and the power button. To actually start charging your devices, you have to press the power button.

Build

Structure and Material:

When a power bank is made to withstand certain conditions such as falling onto hard-flooring or being waterproof, then those are usually called Rugged power banks. This Zendure power bank isn’t exactly a Rugged power bank but it does have rugged properties such as its shell that makes the charger more resilient in times of great pressure, and it can also help protect itself against falls.

Tech:

One the tech side, this charger does get a little warm if you’re using the Power Delivery charging for a long duration. Other than that, the charger is very stable during charging.

Reliability

This Zendure Power Delivery power bank definitely opens doors to charge more Power Delivery compatible devices at a fast charging speed, that is, if they require the faster-charging speed. It’s also useful for charging another device at the same time with its USB-A port. That said, if you don’t need the extra 15W of charging power with the Power Delivery charging, then it’s best to go for a 30W Power Delivery portable charger.

Summary:

Power:

There’s more Power Delivery charging with this power bank than your average Power Delivery portable charger as this one has a 45W output. You can also recharge it at Power Delivery speeds, with a Power Delivery wall charger.

Design:

The size of this power bank is quite large and not really meant for fitting it into your pocket, but it’s more for placing on the surface and using it to charge your devices.

Build:

This Zendure power bank has one of the best build qualities when it comes to non-rugged power banks.

Reliability:

The charger does have more charging power than your average Power Delivery portable charger, it’s really up to you to decide if that extra power is worth the higher price tag.
