If you’ve never heard of Eggtronic before, you’re going to be as perplexed as I was when I first visited the company’s website. If you’re looking for a tech product maker, this website seems to be a good place to begin your search. That is not the case, though. Eggtronic’s $69.99 Laptop Power Bank has been in my possession for a few weeks now, and I have to say that I am extremely pleased with it.
Eggtronic’s design stands out in comparison to most other power banks, which are normally black plastic enclosure with a power button, a few LED lights, and a few connectors on one end. Top and bottom are covered in fabric, a tiny monitor displays exactly how much power is left, and three connectors: two USB-A ports, a single port for the USB-C connection.
The USB-C port doubles as both a USB and a Thunderbolt port. Of course you can also use it to charge a Nintendo Switch or any other device that requires power. Support for charging at up to 20V/2.25A (45W) in both directions is provided via the USB-C connector. The middle USB port can provide up to 12V/1.5A (18W) of output, while the normal USB port can deliver the basic charging speed of 5V/2.4A (12W) through the standard port.
Connected the Eggtronic Laptop Battery Pack’s USB Ports to an AVHzY USB Power Meter for the usual testing method. DCP 1.5A, QC 3.0, QC 2.0, Samsung 9V, and Huawei 9V were all activated through the USB-C connector. I was also able to activate the maximum 20V/2.25A output of Power Delivery.
The 18W declared maximum output of the middle USB port also triggered the same charging rules. USB ports 2 and 3 triggered 2.4A, 1.5A and 5V from the last USB port that was available.
For the 20,000mAh (74Wh) capacity, I also utilised the AVHzY USB Power Meter to test the overall output power capacity. The pack utilised a total of 64.3734Wh during the course of a few hours, resulting in an efficiency rating of 86.99 percent. Since I’ve evaluated more than 30 packs, Eggtronic’s 83.44 percent efficiency is somewhat above the norm.
Charging the battery pack took just 2 hours and 40 minutes at the pack’s maximum charging speed of 30 watts.
With a combined output of 63W from the three ports on the Eggtronic, you can charge many devices at once. You won’t find any way to turn on the battery pack. The moment you put in a gadget, it immediately begins to charge since it recognises the presence of a power source. In addition, the USB-C port supports passthrough charging, which means that you may concurrently charge the USB-C port and another USB device.
The Eggtronic Laptop Power Bank is one of my favourites. It’s well-built, has a lot of power, and operates at a higher efficiency than the industry average. The Eggtronic would have replaced the Mophie Powerstation XXL if its efficiency had beaten out the current best power bank, the Eggtronic.
