3-Port Fast Charge 145W Power Bank with PD3.0 and QC3.0 speeds
As my kids have grown older, our family has become more involved with sporting activities BSA Scouts, and school. From weekend-spanning campouts, week-long scout camps, to all day baseball tournaments, basketball games, band concerts, presentations, water park/theme park outings, etc., I have found difficulty with keeping my iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple Watch Ultra, Air Pods Pro, and other devices charged when separated from a power outlet/source. As a potential solution, I utilize portable batteries with a minimum of 10,000 mAh charge. When weight:power ratios are considered, one must decide about the optimal number and size of their batteries. Assuming ~80% efficiency, a 10,000 mAh battery should provide just under two full charges for the 4323 mAh battery of my iPhone 14 Pro Max.
When backpacking or carrying gear for a day outing, I must consider the weight and volume of my devices. My son (Life Scout) and I recently returned from a two-week Philmont trek (~90 total miles) and carried ~60–70 pounds over two weeks. This included our shelter, sleeping gear, clothing, water, food, group gear, and miscellaneous items like batteries for my iPhone (camera/communications). I purchased/packed a 10,000 mAh Anker USB-A/C battery (8.8 ounces) and an Anker 20,000 mAh PowerCore (12.16 ounces) for the trip. Even though the batteries served me well, the dual items took up precious space within my Osprey Aether 70L Plus pack. After some additional research/testing, I may have found my optimal weekend and backpacking power bank for my upcoming campout/trip. Weighing in at 18.1 ounces, the UGREEN 145W 25,000 mAh Power bank will provide me with weight and volume savings, but at a possible cost of ~500mAh and some redundancy.
The UGREEN 25000 Fast Charging Power Bank arrived in a 3 7/8 inches wide by 6 5/8 inches tall by 1 3/4 inches thick retail package. The main cover provided a sexy hunter-green UGREEN logo at the top of the cover, followed by three product icons. 1. High Energy Density Cell…
