Modern technological advances of late have revolutionized how we store power and how we do it. Now, there’s tiny batteries with huge capacities. And the price levels are dropping seemingly everyday. It’s amazing how lithium batteries have changed everything. Where I had to plan my day and work around my energy consumption, I now can roam freely, and charge once overnight while I sleep instead of stopping throughout the day so I could reup my laptop or phone, or camera batteries. Now, I can do everything from a single power bank.
I recently reached out to Crave to feature their Crave Power Bank Plus PRO 20,000mAh quick charge battery pack and they sent one out for me to test. Size is always important as a backpacker, as is every ounce in weight, because I must shoulder everything I wish to take with me, including my clothes, toiletries, laptop, hard drives, camera, lenses, memory cards and accessories, as well as my survival gear, tent, and on and on it goes. So light weight and small is king as far as being a backpacker is concerned.
Crave’s power bank offers type-C output which can charge tablets, speakers and laptops, and this model comes equipped with two 3.0 quick charge USB ports. Being 20,000mAh, this power bank can charge an iPhone roughly 6-10 times before needing recharged. All in all, I tested the speed of the power bank and its capacity and was blown away by how nice and sleek the design was compared with how dynamic its ability to power all of my devices while I’m on the go. Overall, I’m pleasantly surprised by its effectiveness and speed of charge.
