Capacity & Charging speed

Charging speed is where the Aukey 10400mAh Portable Charger blows its competition away. Boasting Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology, the Aukey will charge compatible phones and tablets MUCH faster than comparable portable chargers. In a nutshell, Quick Charge 2.0 maximises the amount of current that can be safely delivered to a battery whilst charging. For a list of compatible Quick Charge 2.0 phones and tablets click here. We’re also happy to report that charging speed of other, non-compatible devices is still excellent.

Quick charging is supported for both output and input. However, it is worth pointing out that you will need a compatible Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger to take advantage and charge your power bank as quickly as possible. The good news is if you own a Quick Charge 2.0 enabled phone or tablet, then your existing wall charger will fit the bill. If not, something like this wall charger from Anker would be a worthwhile investment.

And we haven’t even mentioned capacity yet! With 10400 mAh the Aukey represents extremely good value for money. This will be able to cope with most battery charging duties you throw its way!

Whilst it would have been nice to see the unit come with 2 USB outputs – it is a handy feature to be able to charge multiple devices at once. But there is something to be said for not overloading a product with features. Instead, Aukey has focused on making sure the unit delivers in the areas that really count!

Look and feel

Design is another area where the Aukey 10400mAh Portable Charger impresses. The anodized aluminum body gives it a premium appearance that belies its actual cost. The metal body has a nice, solid feel when you pick it up. Short and slightly chunky, the unit is rounded and fits nicely in the hand, although the leading edges are quite abrupt.

At the business end, you will find in a neat little row the power button, 4 LEDs to indicate charge level, plus a USB output, and micro USB input. A great looking portable charger!

Durability & Construction

The Aukey 10400mAh Portable Charger comes with a 24-month warranty, so Aukey clearly believes in the products that they are putting out. It feels solid, and really well put together. The aluminum body should protect the internal electronics when you take the unit out and about.

However, we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t report that there have been a small number of reports that have reached our ears of faulty units being shipped. The most common one being that they stopped working somewhere between 2 weeks to 3 months after purchase. We should stress that those are isolated incidents, and having the 24-month warranty goes a long way to negate that issue.

There have also been a few reports of customers having compatibility issues with Motorolla devices.


At 4 x 3 x 0.8 inches the Aukey 10400mAh Portable Charger will comfortably fit in your hand (just check the picture at the top of this review). At a stretch, it would fit in a decent-sized pocket but would be more comfortable in a purse, backpack or shoulder bag. Compared to some units it has quite a squat, chunky profile – this has the advantage of minimizing its footprint. It tips the scales at 9.8 ounces which is par for the course at this power category/price point.
