Are you among those that have made up their mind never to buy Power Bank again? Someone once said that its no longer power banks that charge phones again but it's phones that charge Power Banks. As funny as it sounds, but that is the reality. It's difficult to find good Power Banks that lasts these days.

For years we have talked about the advantages of fast charging, in particular, the one enabled by Quick Charge. This means that it is not only the quickest way to charge devices that can support a higher charge speed, but it is enough to charge USB-C devices like your USB-C laptop that does not charge on a standard USB adapter.

Anker has earned the position as a sales leader in the market of accessories, since they go beyond the usual, turning the common into special and boring into fun, for this reason, they extended their catalog to the Power Bank, a back up battery that will save you in more than one bind and in that same line of products, comes the compact Anker PowerCore+ 20100, a thinner variant that has 1 inch thickness and as indicated, offers us a large capacity of: 20,100mAh Initial Power and Output Power Capacity of 16,080mAh. Stay with us to know the surprises that this device has for us.

Before you finally give up on Power Banks, We want you to take a look at this new portable Power Bank from Anker. To be honest, this is not some kind of gimmick. The Anker PowerCore+ 20100 promises the following:

Anker PowerCore+ 20100 Power Bank: Box

The Anker PowerCore+ 20100 Power Bank comes in a rectangular box with the following dimensions: 20.8 x 11 x 4 cm, so we are dealing with a relatively compact package if we compare it with other products of its same category and within it, we will find:

  • 1x  Anker PowerCore+ 20100 Power Bank (with dimensions of 5.91 x 2.44 x 0.91 in (or roughly 6x3x1 in))
  • 1x Pouch
  • 1x MicroUSB Cable
  • 1x 3.1 USB-C to USB-C Cable + a standard USB-C Cable
  • 1x Welcome Guide

Despite its huge capacity, the Anker PowerCore+ 20100 is one of the portable Power Banks that will fit perfectly in a small pocket, bag or purse. It promises long hours usages depending on the device. It features an advanced charging technology that includes the following:

PowerIQ Technology

With this feature, you will be able to identify any connected device, and it helps to deliver the optimum, high-speed charge to all devices. The supported devices include Apple & Android Phones, Tablets, Cameras, Laptops as well as Consoles and more.

VoltageBoost Technology

This is a smart technology that determines when the charging output is encountering cable resistant, thus ensuring that the charging speed is not affected by any old or fake charging cable.

Anker PowerCore+ 20100 Design

The Anker Powercore+ is designed to be portable and pocket-friendly. On the inside, it's built with a small but high performing cell which ensures you get the highest possible capacity, efficiency, reliability, and safety performance.

The PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C Power Bank opts for a rectangular design in black, which is made of aluminum alloy, a material that gives more excellent resistance against shock, falls and scratches, although we will not abuse this feature since we do not know its inflection point. As for personalization, we must mention that we will only appreciate the manufacturer's logo on the front, so we will enjoy a product that is highly harmonious and symmetrical.

The massive power is squeezed into a small size body that anyone can carry around. There are THREE USB ports which can be used to power charge 3 phones at a time, and besides, there is a small pouch for carrying the device wherever you go.

This Anker advanced product come with safety protection such as short circuit protection to keep you and your device safe at all time. Remember, PowerIQ and Voltage Boost charging technology will ensure your device charge fast without any restriction or slow charge, which can be caused by a long or old USB cable.

We also have LED indicators that are positioned in the upper part of the device. Finally, this Power Bank opts for the following dimensions: 66 millimeters wide, 188 millimeters long, 23.40 millimeters thick and weights only: 621 grams, shaping as an extremely light and comfortable device to move.

Anker PowerCore+ 20100 Performance & Capacity

In our test for how quick you can charge up your device; we used a Galaxy Note 9 to see how long the portable charger takes to charge it to 100% from 0%. In the test run, our Galaxy Note 9 (with 4,000mAh battery) took about 1 hour and 45 minutes to charge up, which is incredible. We also used the power bank to test-charge a MacBook Pro, Tab S4 and iPhone X, and the result was great.

Besides, the Anker PowerCore+ 20100 Power Bank was able to charge our MacBook Pro, Galaxy Note 9, iPhone X and Tab S4 devices from Samsung fast as expected. Charging through the two female USB ports won't be as fast as using the USB-C port to charge up your device.

NOTE: in order to fully utilize the USB-C port fast charging feature, a little trick has to be applied; you need to press the power button on the Anker PowerCore+ 20100 power bank, and while the indicator lights are on quickly plug in your MacBook Pro or any other USB-C supported device, and you will see the magic from this portable device.

With 20,100mAh of battery inside, a fully charged Anker PowerCore+ 20100 will be able to charge up an iPhone X around seven times before it needs to be charged up again itself.

PowerCore+ 20100 Power Bank stands out in this aspect for its great capacity, which is part of its name, even offering up to 20,100mAh, a masterful load, so we will not have any problem in charging all the devices that we need to charge. An important point that we must highlight is that it takes long hours to fully charge the power bank up to 100%. It took us about 7 hours to fully charge it with its USB port type C.

PowerCore+ 20100 Power Bank: Compatibility

The PowerCore+ 20100 Power Bank is compatible with a wide variety of devices, these being: Tablets, Smartphones, Smartwatches, SmartBand, Speakers and many more, but undoubtedly the most striking of these are the laptops, even being ideal for charging our MacBook regardless of model.
