Review: Zendure A6PD 20,100mAh Portable Charger with USB-C Input/Output
What the Zendure A6PD Portable Charger does well:
- Charges laptops With USB-C PD quickly
- Battery pack itself is very high quality
- USB-C for input and output
- Quick Charge QC 3.0 Compatible
What the Zendure A6PD Portable Charger could improve:
- The included cable seems high quality but does not consistently work often flickering between working and not working based on how it is moved.
- Still includes legacy micro-USB that can be used for charging when they could have included another USB-C port.
The Zendure A6PD 20,1000 mAh Portable Charger is a sleek and practical battery pack that is great for laptops and phones. The package includes a USB-C to USB-C cable with a USB-A adapter on one end but you may want to use your own cable rather than the included one
The portable charger supports USB-C PD at 45W for both input and output. The battery pack also has a USB-A port With Quick Charge QC 3.0 and for the input, it in addition to the USB-C port sports a micro-USB although we find this inclusion unnecessary and would rather see a second USB-C port. The portable charger has four LEDs that indicate how much charge is remaining. Fully charging my Dell Inspiron 17 7000 took under 2 hours and over 2 bars used on the battery pack.
Here is some charging information I collected using Accubattery Pro on my Oneplus 3:
This was using the Oneplus Dash charge cable with the Zendure battery packs USB-A port
This was using the included USB-C to USB-C cable and the USB-C PD port.
These are not ideal conditions for charging a device as one plus does not support quick charge, however it is evident even so that the phone charges faster with the battery packs USB-C PD port rather than with the USB-A port.
Zendure overall has made a great battery pack for charging laptops and
