05 August 2019
We check out Samsung's latest powerbank, which does wired as well as wireless fast charging.

Find it pretty handy as I have an S9, Gear S3 and a Galaxy Watch (the power bank was a freebie when i bought the gw).

What about pass through charging.. I would be more interested in such a device if it does pass through

Overpriced as F...
On a wish site for same price i can buy 10 powerbanks with simmilar specs.

Keep in mind that wireless technology is not perfect, so a lot of energy is lost during conversion.
A powerbank that could charge the phone 3 times with cables might charge it 2 times or less wirelessly.

The first thing that comes in mind after capacity is portability. You're on your way anways, so priority is charge it as fast as possible - wireless charging is not the way to go then. And right after that, it comes to the size. The charger has to be handy. Why would I get one that is 20 or 30% bigger and heavier than the other model without wireless charging?

Powerbank is a mobile solution. As long as wireless charigng isn't as fast and/or as light as the convential powerbanks, there is no need for this.

Don't waste money on this. I have both the regular 10000 mAh battery and the wireless version. Phone is much hotter using wireless charging and battery lose power quickly

Interesting charger, but i might wait for a bigger version...

When I'm searching for powerbank, that is one of my concerns. In that case, it's the laptop that charges powerbank. Xiaomi powerbank Mi Pro 10000 (the one with USB-C INput, that's another one I own), on the other hand, manages to charge MB 12 at 5W tops. Tops, as compared to not charging at all at higher power demand.

I use this powerbank to charge the S10. Fast wireless charging switched on and a full charge takes about 1h35m. It does drain the powerbank, though, leaving you with indications of only 1 of 4 dots of charge. There is either a lot of counterfeits or some powerbanks fail prematurely, lasting only few charges. At least, that's the case in Polish market, where I was searching for mine.

Two wired and one wireless with atleast 20000mah battery
