Thought this looked pretty decent for anyone using their laptop out and about and needs the extra charge. Type C supported, so would work with with the new Macbooks also.

**Update: price back and now on a different code**

  • Powerful AC Output: With a built-in AC output for devices, this portable power outlet allows electronic devices like GoPros, drones, printers, table lamps, vacuum cleaners, and small fans to recharge anywhere. (If your devices are more than 50W, this power bank might not charge them).
  • Type-C 5V/3A & USB 5V/2.4A Outputs: Type-C and iSmart USB allows for the fast and simultaneous charging of two devices including a MacBook and an iPhone 7; also works as a portable charger for smart devices. To turn ON the AC power you must hold the power button for about 8 seconds.
  • Cylinder Size With A 20100mAh Capacity: A huge 20100mAh battery fully charges an iPhone 7 6 times, or the 12" MacBook 1.3 times. It is suggested to use the original AC adapter and charging cable when charging your laptop or other electronic devices.
  • Save 60% Off The Recharge Time: Through the 19V/1.6A DC input, you'll have full power in just 4 hours - compared to the standard 10 hours from a 2.4A charger; 5 LED lights indicate remaining battery, while the ON/OFF switch removes operation confusion
  • Triple Protection + Safer Use: Includes overcharge, short circuit, and current surge protection; air vents for safer heat dissipation; and a dust cover to prevent dust entry

Got it today and it's pretty rubbish because it can't power anything I've tried via AC (hairdryer, hair straightener, laptop).

Not worth £50

Hairdryer and hair straightener on this? Dude, you need a crash course in the relationship between power, voltage and current before splashing the cash on stuff like this.

A very good review here. But he said he saw 25% losses in efficiency which is too high to consider this a genuine capacity powerbank.
I have the 27k variant of this, it's very nice to have since you can plug in different things with it. Some crazy people have used a hairdryer with it..

The 27k one needs you to use the included euro to UK adapter, I don't think the 20k one does and it's probably a better form factor. It all depends on your needs.
I love RAVPower stuff. Seems to be on par with Anker for quality

it looks absolutely massive, you can get the same capacity at half the size and half the cost, but granted the charging time for the power bank itself is longer

I got rather bored while he was explaining at great length the difference between 110v and 220v. But are the 'efficiency losses' just the difference between the nomimal capacity at the batteries' 3.7v, and the output at 5v? Because if so, every power bank in existence has the same lack of efficiency.
so far i have not seen any power bank to ac 220v products. so this is something rare. however the other ravpower product has 99.9wph which is just foot on the edge of bring to the airplane. i don't want that kind of risk of argue with the border security people. so i'll just go for this one.
In before the " will this charge my iphone 4" comments
- Love the fact the unit charges from 0 to 100% within 4 hours
- although it doesn't naively fast charge mobile devices, you can plug a fast charger in to it via the AC port
- if it'll operate a hair drier, I'm going to defrost the inside of the car windscreen with it in the winter.

that is really very useful for me
Been looking at power banks with AC ports for months but never sold on one because of the US plug sockets. Really nice to see a UK plug. Can’t decide whether the power efficiency is good enough though.

for the very good price though! Will have to decide later whether it’s worth the buy.
Will this be OK to take (and possibly use) on flights?
Nice!! will this thing power an electric sunbed in the shed? Would finally save on having to run cables down the garden. HEAT!
Gutted....bought this a couple of weeks ago....from amazon

It's good but foes have does have downfalls....e.g efficiency....and would have been nice to have more USB outputs....but it's not that heavy....so good for travel
This thing's pretty cool but at 130W to charge my laptop it doesn't even come close to power output

I was hoping to get something like this for travelling - does anyone know of any alternatives to keep in a vehicle that will charge high power devices like 130Wish?

If you have the car with you, perhaps something like this would better serve your needs...

Trouble is I wouldn't want to have the car on, and also if it's drawing too much power the car might not be able to handle it. Seems a bit much drawing 130W from a lighter socket.

Correct
The Surface Pro 2017 has a charger with "45W" on it, so you're saying I could plug that directly into the 3-pin socket on this?

According to the manual and specification quoted it should charge it OK. BUT I bought it specifically to use with my Mavic Pro battery charger rated at 50W. FAILED. So it went straight back.

I've successfully charged Mavic batteries with this without any issue. I was using the charger that came with the drone, not sure if thats the pro charger? I fully charged three Mavic batteries from one full tank of the Ravpower.

Utterly useless then? Although it could be handy for throwing at someone breaking into your house - in that sense it could even prove to be a life saver. Hmm, pros and cons I guess
It's not useless it can power devices under 50w via a 220v standard plug socket. If you need to do that it's awesome, if you don't need to do that then don't buy it.

wouldn't power a 60W macbook pro charger which at the wall draws 42w. Sent it back. I like ravpower too but they do over exaggerate their specs like many other battery sellers.

I'm curious, does this serve a purpose if it won't charge basic things through AC? What sort of things will it charge? Doesn't seem to be good for laptops despite showing a laptop in its advertising.

I'd quite like it for my nintendo switch for example

Well, lots of people have laptops and I suspect that many of them need to charge them while away from main power so not so niche really.

I tripped the breaker on my car’s lighter socket when I tried to charge an iPad and iPhone at the same time. Therefore I suspect that many people will run into similar problems is they attempting to charge a laptop.

I have one of theses RAVPower devices and it works a treat with my Surface Pro.

Check out their 26800mAh usb-c powerbank for the switch. I think it's similar price to this and much more compact.
How much is DC to AC conversion loss on this ? I rather have DC battery than have DC to AC battery and back to DC to charge for my laptop or mobile. I suspect the device won't even supply the rated power due to conversion losses .
