In addition to the USB charging ports you typically find on a power bank, Omnicharge external battery has one unique feature: a full-sized AC port.
The Omnicharge power bank comes in two capacities: 13600 mAh and 20400 mAh. While both units feature an AC port, the output is limited. The 13600 mAh version maxes out at 65 watts, while the 20400 mAh model maxes out at 100 watts. So while it’s enough power to charge your laptop, don’t expect to plug in a hair dryer or portable heater into the Omnicharge. Please note that if you have a MacBook Pro 15-inch model, the power requirements are a little more heftier and the 20400 mAh Omnicharge is recommended. However, the 13600 mAh can handle 13-inch MacBooks and smaller, as well as many other laptop by Dell and Samsung.
With the AC port, MacBook Air users can expect about 8 hours of charging time with the Omnicharge 13600 and up to 13 hours (or 1 full charge) with the Omnicharge 20400.
Both models feature 2 USB charging ports that can output 2.4 amps simultaneously. The Omnicharge 13600 can charge a smartphone about 4-6 times and a tablet about 1-2 times. The larger Omnicharge 20400 can provide about 6-9 smartphone charges and up to 3 tablet charges.
Omnicharge also takes safety very seriously by implementing several protection circuits A built-in safety check algorithm monitors the charging process and deploys safety protocols as needed. The charging system also features a closed loop system with temperature sensors to actively monitor the incoming and outgoing voltage level. There are also built-in protections against short circuits and overcharging.
A built-in OLED screen allows you to monitor the USB and AC charging status, as well as input and output wattage and battery temperature. The battery level and estimated time remaining until depletion are also displayed.
The unit performed very well for me, providing the proper output to my iPhone and iPad, while also charging my MacBook. The unit did not become very hot while in use, even when charging multiple devices. And the ability to charge the power bank while charging your devices (“pass-through charging”) is a big timesaver.
Overall, the Omnicharge provides a comprehensive all-in-one charging solution that not only recharges iPhones, Android phones, and tablets, but the AC port allows you to charge laptops and other devices that require a special charger. The built-in OLED screen allows you to keep tabs on the unit’s performance, and the multiple built-in safety features keep your gadgets safe.
The Omnicharge is now available for pre-order!
