Choetech: 15600mAh Quick Charger

Choetech recently sent me the 15600mAh Quick Charge Portable Power Bank to test out and provide a review. So, I put this to the test a little bit.  First off, the unit is not too large for this much power, but it is a bit heavy at about 12.5 ounces. 

The device offers 15600mAh and input ports, 1 micro USB and 1 Apple Lightening, which is very convenient if you want to share the device amongst lightening and non-lightening users. The micro USB input is rated at 5V/2.1A, 9V/1.5A while the Lightening offers 5V/2.1A.  In addition there are two output ports, a regular 5V/1A USB and an auto detect USB 5V/2.4A, 9V/1.7A, 12V/1.3A.  Its nice to have the multipe output ports for those times you need to charge more than one device at a time.

On the top there is a power button, which, if not pressed, your devices will not charge. There is also four LED indicators at 25% increments to provide battery charge status.  

Using my Nexus 6P, I tried out the charging on two different occasions starting from the same low battery point. On the first occasion the battery was at 10% and I used the auto detect fast charge port.  From 10% to 100% it took 2 hours and 5 minutes.  On the second occasion I used the regular USB port, again going from 10% to 100%, but this time it took 2 hours and 40 minutes.  

Despite being billed as a Qualcomm quick charger, it must be noted that quick charge does not occur with the Nexus 6P. It should work with rapid charging on the Nexus 6. Other devices they state it will rapid charge with include Samsung Galaxy Note 5/ S6 Edge+/S6/S6 Edge, Note 4/Edge, Google Nexus 6, Sony Xperia Z4, Z4 Tablet, Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact, Z2 Tablet, Motorola Droid Turbo, Moto X 2014, HTC One M9, HTC One (M8), One Remix (Verizon Mini 2), Desire EYE

This is a pretty decent charger to have in you bag for those times you need extra power. You can pick one up from Amazon here
