Crave Plus PRO Portable Charger Review

Crave Plus PRO

Crave Plus PRO is the larger version of the Crave Plus 10000mAh power bank. Both power banks have the same style, but the capacity of the PRO is double. Moreover, some charging features are slightly different. Let’s have a closer look at them.

Charging Technology

Crave Plus Pro Specs

The Crave Plus PRO is a professional-grade charger, much like the name suggests. This device can charge up to 3 devices at the same time and charges them at lightning speed as well. The device is universally compatible with smartphones, tablets, and laptops as well. It comes with both Quick Charge 3.0 and PD charging technology. It has a maximum power output of up to 60 watts, which means it can even charge laptops. 

For the size of this portable charger, the power and wattage are pretty impressive. The charging block uses flat battery cell technology, which allows it to be thinner, more compact, and yet it provides more power.

In terms of charging ports, it features an input/output USB type-C port and two output USB type-A ports. It comes with a USB C to USB C charging cable but it also has a USB A adaptor too.

Crave Plus Pro Ports

It can be fully recharged within 3-4 hours provided you use a fast-charging adaptor such as a GaN wall charger. The maximum charging speed for any single port is 30 watts.

The Crave Plus PRO has a 20000mAh capacity, which is enough to charge a regular smartphone up to 6-8 times. It’s even powerful enough to handle even high-power laptops like the MacBook Pro. 

Portability

The Crave Plus PRO PD measures only 7 inches long by 3.24 inches wide, by 0.72 inches thick. These measurements show you just how small and compact the charging device is. It will fit easily into your purse or bag. It might even fit in a larger coat pocket, but definitely not in your jeans pocket. Overall it’s slightly larger than the size of an average smartphone.

At 1.1 pounds it’s not the lightest power bank, but considering its capacity, this is a good weight. You might not want to carry it around in your hand all day long, but you don’t notice it if you take it around in your backpack.

The 76Wh battery capacity does fall within the allowable guidelines for TSA as well so you can take it on flights. It also has the capacity clearly labeled on the backside, which can be helpful in clearing security at some airports.

Look and Feel

Crave Plus Pro Side

The casing of the Crave Plus PRO is made of aluminum, which gives it extra durability. It is comfortable to hold and move. It has a good grip on a sleek design. This port is classic black and gray colors. They don’t stick out as an eyesore. The charging ports securely hold the cords when they are in position as well.

The ports are clearly marked so you know just where you should plugin. The power button is on the side. It’s a simple shiny button, with a row of LED light indicators below it. These lights indicate charge levels so you can be aware at all times.

The overall design and the way the device works are pretty similar to most power banks. The charging ports are all on one end and then you have the power button and capacity indicators. The stand-out feature points back to the slim design and the quick charging functionality as well as the ability to charge a laptop.

Durability & Build Quality

When you take a look at the construction of the Crave Plus PRO, you see that it is made with quality materials. The aluminum is lightweight but durable and won’t fall apart even if you drop it. It’s sturdy enough to stand up to life.

The power bank can get slightly warm if you charge for long periods of time but not more so than similar power banks. Charging multiple devices doesn’t seem to have this effect, just extended charging times. This is one of the better-constructed power delivery portals that we have seen. We love the slim factor and overall reliability.

The Crave Plus PRO is covered by a 30-day money-back guarantee so if you aren’t satisfied, you get your money back!

My Experience With The Crave Plus PRO

I’ve been using the Crave Plus Pro on and off, mostly for powering up my laptop on the go. I like the fact that it has enough capacity to never really worry if I have enough battery or not. 

Compared to other similar power banks, for me, it stands out mostly because of the metal casing. You can immediately tell the difference since the metal casing feels colder to the touch compared to a regular plastic one. I can instantly tell that this also translates into a higher build quality. It feels like this is a power bank that will outlast the average ones. 

I also prefer it to it’s smaller brother the Crave Plus 10000mAh power bank. Not only because of the extra capacity but because of the charging technology as well. The PRO can deliver higher power outputs and it also does away with the outdated micro-USB port. The PRO is overall a more modern and capable power bank, thus rising up to its name. 

The one complaint I have is that the power button feels rather flimsy to me. I would have preferred a larger, more solid button instead. Or maybe, even an LCD screen instead of the classic LED light. Am I asking for too much?

Final Thoughts

Not every power bank allows you to charge a laptop like the Crave Plus PRO does. Although it’s on the heavy side it compensates with a fast recharging time and a premium build. Overall, this is an exceptional power bank in design and quality. You can’t beat the versatility and compatibility that this design offers compared to competitors on the market.
