AUKEY's 30000mAh battery pack contains all the power you could possibly need
You've probably seen some 10000mAh battery packs available, but did you know that AUKEY has a 30000mAh option for purchase? To show just how insanely massive this capacity is, take the HP Elite x3 with its already large 4150mAh battery — you'll be able recharge it from dead to full roughly seven times before this gargantuan Aukey battery pack is depleted.
Much like the Aukey's smaller offerings, this one offers two USB ports, with a dedicated Micro-USB port for charging the unit. One of the two output ports supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology and is colored orange for easier identification. Both the green and orange USB ports also are equipped AUKEY AiO, which sees the pack communicate with connected devices to prevent damaging components for pushing out too much charge.
If Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 wasn't enough for you, this capacious power pack also offers a USB Type-C port for charging the pack or charging your devices. There's also the usual LED flash light, which can be used to find your way through a dense forest or (more likely) to hunt for your USB cables when your phone's completely dead.
Like most battery packs you need to press a button to start charging your devices. The button also serves as a status indicator; unfortunately, there's no LED display with more useful at-a-glance information. But the multi-color light-up button can at least give you an idea of roughly how much charge is left:
- White — 70-100%
- Green — 30-70%
- Red — 0-30%
When you hook up to charge the pack itself, the button will light up green while charging and white once it's fully charged and ready to go.
After using the 30000mAh battery pack to jump start various devices and provide juice to the OnePlus One (3100mAh) numerous times, I can confirm that it's certainly possible to take full advantage of Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 with compatible smartphones, as well as getting the most out of the pack before it's out of juice. And don't worry if your phone or device doesn't support Quick Charge 3.0, it's backwards-compatible with Quick Charge 2.0 and also has the aforementioned AUKEY AiO tech for offering as much standard charge as your device will take.
Considering the amount of charge this particularly unit can hold, it's actually rather compact and comfortably fit snugly inside a laptop backpack while traveling abroad. Sure, it's a pricey option when compared against other solutions available, but if you'd like to have Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 with a battery pack that offers maximum peace of mind that'll you'll always have power, it's definitely worth the investment.
