A quick mini-review of the Poweradd 20000mAh powerbank, which is capable of up to 18W power delivery which is enough to keep some ultraportable laptops going.

This is not a brand I have heard of before, the benefit of this is that they are cheap. This costs just £20.99 after you apply a £5 voucher.

In Use

Like all powerbanks, this has doesn't offer a great deal of features to talk about, it changes things and that's about it. It holds 20000mAh has two USB-A outputs and a USB-C output for the power delivery.

The 18W rating it just enough to charge ULV laptops or Windows on Arm devices or various tablets such as the iPad.

With dimensions of 16.6 x 6.3 x 2.4 cm weighing 364g, this puts it a touch heavier than options from Anker or other well know brands, but I doubt you would notice. Mainly, this is not something to put in your jeans, but you can comfortably carry it around all day in a small bag.

Overall

At the end of the day, this is the same as every other 20000mAh 18W PD powerbank. However, by going for a lesser-known brand you can save a few quid. This costs £25.99 and you can then apply another £5 voucher, taking it down to just £20.99. In comparison the Anker PowerCore Essential 20000 PD will set you back £35 after discounts. So that's quite a large difference.

So overall the Poweradd is a decent affordable option, perfect for holidays or long days away where you have a bag to fit it.
