RAVPower Portable Charger 22000mAh at a glance
What a beast! This monster charger from RAVPower has got our attention. Not only is it not much bigger than an iPhone 6s, but it also has three ports to charge 3 devices simultaneously. At 22000mAh, there isn’t much the RAVPower 22000mAh 3-Port Power Bank can’t charge at least twice. This does mean there’s a little extra weight on the unit but its sturdy construction and the reliability of its core components more than make up for a little extra bulk.
Capacity & Charging speed
Similar to Anker’s “PowerIQ technology”, RAVPower use their iSmart 2.0 to achieve a similar result. This means that the RAVPower 22000mAh detects the device it’s charging and optimizes the rate at which it sends charge.
The true capacity of this power bank depends on how many devices are plugged, losing around 2000mAh of the total power per port. This means that its real capacity while operating at full throttle is 16000 mAh, still a big capacity. To give you an example of how powerful the RAVPower 22000mAh is, it delivers enough power to recharge the iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S10 almost 6 times.
Not only is the capacity huge (22000mAh), each of the 3 USB ports has a maximum charging speed of 2.4Am, which is about as fast as it gets. Note, however, if you are charging 3 devices simultaneously, the combined charge speed recedes to 5.8A. This is still really fast and the lithium polymer battery that powers the portable charger is reliable and powerful. It’s also quite unique in this market to use a battery of such high quality in an external charging device.
The RAVPower 22000mAh does take a while to fully charge directly from the wall socket. Something to take into consideration when purchasing a power bank of this size.
The power bank is also capable of Pass-Through Charging, but even the manufacturer will warn you against using it this way because it might lead to internal damage.
Look and feel
The RAVPower 22000mAh 3-Port Power Bank comes packaged neatly and looks quite nice out of the box. It’s smooth to the touch and looks much like other portable chargers of this size.
In terms of its functional components, there are 4 LEDs to indicate charge level and the 3 iPower USB ports sit on the flat end of the power bank. The micro USB input port sits on the left side, while the power button is on the right one.
It comes in either white or black so that you can choose the one like better. It’s attractive enough, although it seems like the focus of the RAVPower 22000mAh is more on its utility rather than its looks.
Durability & Construction
The overall build quality is sound, with very few reports of device failure. One of RAVPower’s main points about its construction is the implementation of UL94 V-0 fire-resistant on its Thermoplastic Alloy shell. Apparently, the same material used by popular car brands like BMW and Mercedes.
There is also a range of fail-safe protection systems that RAVPower has used to ensure you don’t overcharge, overheat or short circuit your devices; a system that resembles Anker’s Multi-protection system. This system means that your devices, and most importantly you, will be protected at all times, while it also grants the power bank a long life.
Out of the box, the RAVPower 22000mAh comes with:
- 1 x RAVPower Ace Series 22000mAh Portable Charger
- 2 x Micro-USB Charging Cables
- 1 x Carry Pouch
- 1 x Lifetime Warranty Card
- 1 x User Guide
The charging cables are of good quality (although it would have been nice to have 3!), and the carrying pouch also appears to be quite sturdy and well made.
One of the downsides of the RAVpower 22000mAh is that it’s not as compact and light as others on the market. When compared to its capacity, however, the size of the unit is very reasonable. There are certainly plenty of portable chargers on the market that weigh more, look bigger, and don’t hold as much power.
This power bank is 6.5 inches long, 2.8 inches wide, and 2.8 inches in thickness, with a total weight of 144 ounces. With such measures, you can see that the charger can still be portable, but not so comfortable for carrying it around; it’s better to take it out and leave it on a surface while you’re using it.
On a positive note, it comes with a carrying bag, did we mention that?! You may need it too. Due to the sheer size of the external battery, the RAVpower 22000mAh is not for those of us with small pockets.
With a high capacity and three fast-charging USB ports, the RAVPower 22000mAh is a colossal and ideal power bank for those who wish to forget about wall chargers for a few days. Should you need a power bank of high capacity to power all your devices, do not hesitate and get a RAVPower 22000mAh; for its price and reliability, it is certainly a good deal.
