CES 2018: myCharge Debuts 20,000mAh 'All Powerful' Battery Pack That Can Charge Anything

by

myCharge, known for its range of external battery packs for charging Macs and iOS devices, is introducing a new 20,000 mAh myCharge All Powerful battery pack, which is capable of charging a wide range of Apple products.

The All Powerful isn't as portable as the average battery pack, but it features a USB-A port, a USB-C port, and an AC outlet, which means it can power just about anything. It even comes equipped with Qi-based wireless charging to charge the iPhone X, 8, and iPhone 8 Plus cord-free.

According to myCharge, the 65-watt AC outlet built into the All Powerful can run a 32-inch TV, power most laptops, or operate a camping fan or light. The USB-A and USB-C ports can charge all of your iOS devices, and the Qi charging supports 10W fast charge.

Along with the All Powerful, myCharge also offers several other rugged chargers that are part of its adventure series, including the Adventure Mini (3,350 mAh), Adventure Plus (6,700 mAh), Adventure Max (10,050 mAh), Adventure Ultra (13,400 mAh), Adventure Xtreme (20,000 mAh), and the Adventure Jump Start (6,600 mAh), which can power up a dead vehicle battery.

Several new myCharge battery packs are being introduced at CES, including an updated Razor line with options ranging from 2,000 mAh to 20,100 mAh, the 7,000 mAh for powering portable game systems, the 3,000 mAh Solar Wallet, and the Unplugged series of Qi wireless chargers.

mAh… this unit doesn’t say anything about the capacity. At what voltage? 0.00001mv?

This is one of my pet beefs too. It seems to have become a convention to quote battery capacity at the standard old USB voltage of 5V. If everything used 5V it would have some validity as a basis for comparison, but with USB-PD operating at 5, 9, 15 and 20V a battery capacity expressed in mAh is meaningless.

The correct unit to express battery capacity is Watt hours (Wh). At least my Anker "26800" USB-PD battery has the decency to also state the capacity as 96.48 Wh in tiny illegible text.

Even Apple do it, expressing the battery capacity of my 12" MacBook as 5550mAh, while its actual capacity is 39.7 Wh.

This matters because if I didn't know better I might naively think the Anker could charge my MacBook 26800/5550 = 4.8 times, while the real number is 96.48/39.7 = 2.4 times. But this is still wrong because the fundamental transfer efficiency is about 70% so it is actually more like 1.7 x.

Of course the manufacturers want to quote nice big numbers, but a lot of people are being mislead because of the voltage issue and because the transfer efficiency is conveniently ignored.

This is a power bank, not a phone charger - it has a 65 watt standard outlet that can power a laptop or a TV. $200 is kind of high for these though, but I haven't seen one with a qi charger built in

I tend to think Qi is dumb for portable batteries since you're throwing away something like 20%-40% of the power
