Choetech's Power Bank Dishes Out Flexibility

Choetech's 20000mAh PD Power Bank is a high-capacity portable power unit designed for laptops, phones, and legacy devices.

It features 2 USB-A outputs, a 45W USB-C PD 2.0 output, and two input options via Micro USB or USB-C at 30W max.

This bank is a good mix between the newer PD units and the older Micro USB power banks of old, and this item even comes with a USB-C/C charging cable to push you into the future of faster charging.

This device also supports dual and/or triple charging and it's QC 3.0 capable, meaning it can charge a Nintendo Switch, iPad Pro, MacBooks, etc. at fast speeds.

Some charge times and device recharge times include:

  • 12" MacBook: 1hr & 1.5 charges
  • 13" MacBook: 1.5hrs & 1+ charges
  • 2018 MacBook Pro: 2hrs & 1.2 charges
  • iPhone X: 0-50% in 30 minutes
  • 2018 iPad Pro: 2.2 charges

You could do the math yourself by finding out your phone's battery capacity.

Other perks this unit has includes: 4 LED battery indicator lights, over-voltage/over-current and short-circuit protections, and an aircraft ready design.

That's right you could bring this power bank on a plane without worry and that extends to international flights.

The Choetech power bank may not be the biggest & most advanced unit around, but it offers much-needed flexibility that will support your gadgets and make your day a little less hectic.

Choetech vs. Everyone Else

The power bank space is mostly dominated by Anker, RAVPower, Aukey, and a couple others but Choetech is a rising star in this category.

Choetech's units have just as much battery capacity as those heftier gadgets with charging protocols for quick charge and power delivery. They're also reasonably priced and don't forego users that are hanging onto older devices.

I think it's very smart for this product to have both Micro USB & Type C inputs; there's a lot of people who don't own any USB-C devices. The only downside is the lack of a Lightning connector, which is a major drawback for Apple users.

A couple other things I haven't seen from Choetech yet is a higher power draw and more PD ports. The Aukey/RAVPower devices I've tested delivered 60-90W of power, which is much more favorable for laptops.

The lack of extra PD ports hurts too because it caps the power output, making it nearly impossible to charge more than one device.

On the plus side the Choetech bank feels lighter and smaller than the RAVPower variant despite it having nearly the same battery capacity. Plus I'd feel safer bringing this unit on a plane vs. an Aukey/Anker power bank.

In the end it'll come down to personal preference, what you'll be using these devices with, and how they'll fit in your day-to-day life.

Choetech 20000mAh PD Power Bank: Final Review

This one was harder to rate than similar gadgets because I wasn't sure to deduct points for it not being as advanced/powerful as other companies' units.

In the end I decided to grade it based on what this product was trying to accomplish.

I would give the Choetech 20000mAh 45W PD Power Bank 4.5 out of 5 stars.

This bank is a good mix between the old and new given the 2 input options and 3 outputs. You won't get the higher specs that others have but you'll still have a high capacity power bank that's capable of charging a multitude of gadgets.

The 45W max output is a decent compromise and would be enough to charge a variety of Macs and PCs. There's QC 3.0 and PD 2.0 support too so any device you plug in will charge faster than the standard.

And personally I'm glad I won't have to throw out my old Micro USB cables just yet.

So would I recommend this device?

Yes...there's a lot of good things about it and it doesn't feel like it's leaving consumers behind. I recently gifted one to my friend's father for his birthday and he loved it.

The Choetech 20000mAh 45W (PD) Power Bank slides right into that tech sweet spot because it's not overly complicated, it blends in the old tech with the new, and it's plenty flexible to bring on a plane, your handbag/suitcase, and more.
