EasyAcc 20000mAh Rugged Powerbank Unboxing

vlcsnap-error391When it comes to battery batteries or Powerbanks there is a wealth on the market already and they serve every need, however with Summer coming there is going to be a few out there who a looking for a solution for all their gadgets without having to have multiple batteries in their bag. Enter the EasyAcc 20000mAh Rugged Powerbank. That’s right, 20000mAh. Good for around 5 full charges of their phone. This is the perfect powerbank for the charge and forget about it approach, perhaps you work Monday to Friday, need a battery and don’t want to have to remember to charge one every night or ever other night. At 20000mAh you have a full charge every day of the week and need only remember to charge it at the weekend. 

With two full sized USB output the battery can handle two phones and if one of those supports the faster charging methods then a at full speed at up to 2.4A. Admittedly the 2A input does mean the battery might take around 12 hours to charge when drained fully but then again it does hold 20000mAh. With a rating of IP67, the powerbank can be immersed under 1 meter water for 30 minutes thanks to a little door that closes over the input and output port. I am not entirely sure of the doors effectiveness as it feels a little loose when it comes to a water tight seal.

Finally a super useful addition is the LED light. Not new to power banks however on a 20000mAh battery the light will stay on for an Age. Also included in a flashing beckon option for attracting attention is in trouble.
