RAVPower 12000mAh Power Pack with Quick Charge 3.0 & iSmart 2.0

I have used quite a few powerbanks from RAVPower in the past and they have always been well made and powerful with the latest generation technology although more expensive than many lesser rivals. At £25.99 on Amazon this powerbank is indeed by no means the cheapest but is it worth paying extra for?

It arrived in a simple eco friendly box inside of which was the powerbank itself, two USB to micro-USB charging cables, a soft carry pouch and a well designed and nicely printed User Guide albeit rather small in size. I enclose a scan of it on the end of my unboxing video.

This charger looks good. It has a up market look to it and this coupled with the high build quality gives it the feel of a high end item. On the front is a simple row of blue LED battery status indicators, on one side is the micro-USB power in port, on the other the soft touch Off/On button. On the bottom are the two output ports: one an iSmart 2.1A and the other a Quick Charge 3.0 giving up to 3A both adjust automatically to the requirements of the connected device to allow for speedier and safer charging. Should there be a overload then the device will safely reset itself.

The internal 12000mAh can be charged up to 1000 times, and takes around five to six hours to do so. which is twice that found with low end rivals. The device should be able to charge an iPhone 7 up to 4.5 times, a Galaxy S7 3 times, and an iPad Mini 4 times,

The main selling points for this device, and the reason it is worth paying the extra, are the compact size and high end looks of the unit coupled with high speed charging capabilities.

If style as well as performance is important to you then this would make an excellent buy.
