The short cable is 10 inches and the long one is 25 inches in length. The sleek design of the unit makes it slips very easily inside the carry pouch. You can squeeze a few more cables in the bag if you wanted.It comes with a great packaging.

 

SO WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY?

Actual test exceeds manufacturer’s rated output!

Just like other power banks, this product uses 3.7 V internal rechargeable batteries. The power is converted to 5V output, so a 22000mAh can only give you 16,280mAh actual output. That is why the seller only states a lower number of times it can charge your phone.

But actual test result is 18,803mAh which exceeded the supposedly actual output of the battery pack. This is maybe because of the High-Density Li-Polymer Battery and the high performance charging IC used by RAVpower.

Nicknamed as “A Behemoth”, “A Monster”, “The Brick”

RAVPower 22000mAh External Battery Pack is equipped with triple USB ports so you can juice up your smartphones, tablets, laptops at once. With the massive power it contains, if full charge, can juice up a single smartphone or tablet for up to 5 days on an average use before it runs out of power. This portable charger can also charge any USB-type gadget as long as it is rated 5V input which is very common to USB-compatible devices.

Nicknamed as “A Behemoth”, “A Monster”, “Beast”, “The Brick”, “A Workhorse”, a Lifesaver” by users due to its enormous capacity and the dependable power it can provide. Despite that, since the capacity is so big it takes about 23-24 hours to be fully recharged(0% to 100%) via 1A charger but using recommended 2A or 2.4A charger will cut the recharging time into half about 10-12 hours. By the way, using 2.4A charger it will only takes around 7-8 hours. So be sure to use the recommended charger input.

An iPad charger will charge it the fastest, followed by the Samsung, then the iPhone wall charger. It is recommended to charge it overnight or a day before your actual travel. 10-12 hours to be fully charged seems to be normal considering this massive capacity battery pack. You can also charge this using a solar charger in case wall outlets are scarce or during power outage.

Product works as it is advertised

In actual use, it can charge your Galaxy Note 5 eight times, consume only 25% of power for Galaxy s7 that is used all day for videos plus internet usage. It can charge two iPhone 7 and an iPad Air 2 up to 70% (from dead battery) with one bar remaining.

This monster can full charge a Samsung Galaxy S6 in about 20 minutes from a completely dead battery! The phone charges within 20-30 minutes whereas a wall charger takes about an 1-2 hours. Although it does not support fast charging, it charges faster than any other charger elsewhere and even faster than your wall outlet! The battery pack only gets slightly warm when charging and little to no heat when discharging.

This beast can power an iPad and iPhone through a 20-hour overnight sailboat race while simultaneously and continuously running several power hungry navigation and weather tracking functions. This power bank can provide all the charge you need to record all day long with no worries that the usual batteries in the digital audio recorders can give and filming a football game with a camcorder.

The weight (431g) is a bit heavy especially if you put it in warm up or drawstring shorts, but this little weight gives it a premium feel and look. The built is solid and sturdy that it can withstand a fall. However, due its sleek design you can slip it even in the tightest pack or you can just use the provided pouch by the manufacturer.
