Cygnett PowerBank ChargeUp Pro 20K

Not just another PowerBank but one with enough power to charge a mid-sized Notebook or Tablet so whatever the length of time it can go without slurping up mains power can now be at least doubled by the addition of this offering from Cygnett.

The Cygnett PowerBank ChargeUp Pro 20K measures 17x10x1.5cm and weights 462 grams (a tad over one pound in weight), this is considerably heavier than your average mobile phone PowerBank but this offering from Cygnett offers an amazing 20000mAh capacity.

Mine was a duck egg blue in colour apart from the last 1.5cm at the front end that is shiny black. The only other piece of hardware in the box is a short 15cm USB ‘C’ to USB lead.

On that end are an on/off push button above this on the top end of the unit are three pin hole LEDs that show blue to give the amount of charge left in the PowerBank three being the most, two mid power and one getting near to time to find some mains power.

There are three sockets on the end USB3, USB2 and USB ‘C’, the latter for the occasions you need to give the unit some power to recharge it.

A tiny 7x5cm Warranty slip of paper is in the box.

All the instructions for use are on the box.

The possible output from this device is 45watt which is stated to be three times of what can normally be delivered by USB ‘C’.

Cygnett is an Australian company who won an innovation award at the 2018 CES show for this product. This features power delivery that is stated to detect exactly which device it is connected to so delivers the correct and quickest charge for your device.

Some devices are quoted for example a Macbook Pro 13inch can be charged once from the PowerBank.

An HP x360 can be charged once. A Lenovo Yoga 910 60% charge. An iPad Pro 10.5inch 1.8 charges and a Nintendo Switch 3 charges, as I do not currently have any of the devices mentioned I have to take their claims at face value.

I have charged a number of USB SmartPhones with it at around 1% per minute.

Yes it is more weight to carry than most other PowerBanks but it is solidly made and worked fine for me during my extended test period.

30watt charging gives a very fast recharge of the PowerBank.
