Portable AC Outlet:Power banks for Laptop+Phone

While charging you phone with a power bank, you may have often wondered – what if I could also charge my laptop or Macbook Air also with my power bank. The good news is that such power banks featuring an AC wall outlet – in addition to USB charging –  are already available in the market. You can use these power banks with portable wall outlets to charge ANY of your electrical devices that draw up to 100 watts of power!

The high expense on an  AC Power outlet powerbank  is  well worth it for business users or professionals – such as writers – or just any individuals who may need that few additional hours on the laptop or other electronic/camera equipment to finish that vital project or deal or presentation.

ChargeTech ChargeAll Power bank Review

3 Stars

Review Summary: Latest version compares well with competition such as the RAVPower Universal Powerbank 27000 or NexGadget 24000 but the price is waaayyyy too much!

We recommend RAVPower Universal Powerbank 27000  if you need portable AC power outlet (<100 watt) and Poweradd Pilot Pro2 23000 if you just need a powerbank for laptop, CPAP, and smartphone and do not need an AC outlet. With highly-efficient direct DC output,  Poweradd Pilot Pro2 23000 delivers charging for all major laptop brands (+ smartphones) at same (or better) effective battery backup capacity as RAVPower Universal Powerbank 27000 but costs almost half!!

What We Like

  • Light for a 110/220 Volt AC outlet in your pocket (15 ounces or 425 gms)!
  • Excellent for professional users
  • 85 W is enough power for most slim modern laptops, especially those with SSDs such as Macbook Air
  • TSA approved! Vital for extending laptop use in flights
  • Two fast-charging USB ports for charging smartphones
  • Sleek Design with Black & White Color options
  • Fast 2.5 hours charging

What We Do Not like

The handy power bank is excellent for professionals
Black and white colors are available for the Chargeall series

 

What Can ChargeAll Power Banks Charge?

ChargeAll series power banks have two types of charging ports

  • Two fast charging (2.1 A) USB charging ports for charging smartphones & tablets
  • One 110 Volt AC wall plug outlet for charging any electrical device drawing up to 85 watts of power such as most light laptops such as Macbook Air, Microsoft Surface series laptops, Chromebooks etc.

Available Portable Battery Capacities

Chargeall series power banks are currently available in 27,000 mAh  battery capacity. Earlier, 12,000 mAh and 18,000 mAh versions were also available, but they have been discontinued as of now.

We believe that Chargetech  27,000 mAH offers excellent portable power solution for a wide variety of outdoor and emergency power needs…if you can afford it.

Flexibility and Options for Business Users

Having both USB charging ports and AC outlet in your power bank gives you incredible flexibility and options on business travel as you can extend the range of your workhorse laptop and your smartphone with a handy and lightweight device.

Such flexibility is also incredibly useful for emergency and outdoor purpose when sometimes you may have to operate a regular AC light or even a small fan for some time.

The Not So Rosy…

Well, all this flexibility and charging power comes at a somewhat steep cost when compared to other power banks with AC outlet such as the excellent RAVPower Universal Powerbank 27000. ChargeAll power banks cost much higher than most other competitors.

Reliability and Charging Performance

ChargeAll series power banks originated from an crowdfunding project on Indiegogo in 2015. Since then, after some initial hiccups, the product quality has become reliable and dependable with high reviews and product ratings on Amazon.

We found ChargeAll series 27,000 mAH battery bank to be an excellent and dependable performer in charging our test Macbook Air 2015, boosting its operating time by 7-10 hours at a time on an average !
