Charges fast, can charge 3 device at once in an amazingly short time.

There are three output ports on this power bank and each of them is quite powerful.

Huge Capacity. 26800mAh of power charges most phones over 7 times, tablets at least 2 times and any other USB device multiple times.

What experts didn't like
It's expensive, but if you need a serious charger, you may not mind the investment.

The size of this power bank is quite large and heavy, too.

Unfortunately, a dedicated USB-C port is no where to be found on this particular PowerCore+ model.

More expensive as far as battery packs go but this ticks all the boxes if you really need a large amount of portable power.
