After a long break Romoss are finally back with more power bank deals and this time we have the newly released 20000mAh power bank featuring a USB-C port with 45W USB-PD. This makes it suitable for charging your laptop, Nintendo Switch and more! It also has a standard USB port with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology
Also on sale is a 30000mAh and 20000mAh power bank with 18W USB-PD and QC 3.0 fast charging and a 10000mAh power bank with standard charging. Please refer to individual listings to see all features.
AU stock and free shipping with Prime (or orders over $39).
Do same capacity power banks from different manufacturers fluctuate in weight very much? I do a lot of multi day hiking and weight is a pretty important factor.
If they are showing their true capacity the weight should be very close. Tbh if your worried about weight, a 10k or 20k would be ideal for you. The lightest of all powerbanks when I looked them up a while ago was… This one
So that’s around 230grams.
If you were static for a bunch of hours in the sun, I’d suggest a solar one, but let’s be honest – it will take a 10k power bank more than 2 days to fully charge up with solar panels just on the bank itself. Still worth it if you barely use a phone because it’s a backup though.
Looking at an Amazon review, looks like this comes in at 495g
I would look for one without extra features, such as display and wireless charging, since the extra components add weight. The xiaomi ones in aluminium are really nice and light weight. A 10k battery recharges a phone several times.
Thanks bought one. Looks nice.
30k one best for camping to run led lights etc..
lol the whole point of camping is to unplug, getaway and enjoy nature. Get off the grid and go on a digital detox…
U still need lights lol…
why do you care how old mate camps?
you can enjoy nature and getaway without unplugging if you like
Nothing wrong with a little bit of lighting and some quiet tunes. having your eyes glued to a screen on the other hand………..
Tom from Parks and Rec has it figured out!
What led lights are you using when camping? I am looking for a nice usb led strip. Any tips? Thanks 🙂
Does Romoss line of powerbanks have a model that can work as UPS for 5V devices like Raspberry Pi?
I.e. the power pass-through function when connected to a charger, and instant switch to the internal battery when the charger is disconnected?
Good question! Both of my Xiaomi banks actually switch off their output briefly whilst going from microusb input to internal battery. Infuriating.
Mine also shuts off the outputs if the amp draw is below about 300ma… Which is super annoying when I’m using it for LED lights when camping.
From my own experience so far, only those beefy Kogan powerbanks could operate as UPS without that annoying switching black-out delay. However, given how they can cause fires and the recall story, I wouldn’t risk using something like that as a 24×7 Pi UPS.
I also heard that ZMI Ambi has the UPS function, but they don’t seem to be available for purchase in Australia.
A lot of them do this. I can charge my airpod case to about 70% as after that the power draw tapers off too much.
Does the PPD20/Ares auto power on when charging a device or do you need to press the power button?
Romoss vs Anker vs RavPower vs Xiaomi?
And which of the above powerbanks would be good for a DJI Mini 2?
These are fairly heavy, you would be better off with something as advised in to the biker in the first few posts. No extras just power.
My 20k Xiaomi Mi Pro 3 does a solid job of charging my DJI Spark. Does up to 45w USB-C PD and up to 18w on USB-A for the DJI.
When does the sale ends OP?
15th at 11:59pm AEDT unless sold out.
I just hate the crappy and misleading use of mAh as a unit of capacity. It’s either watt hours (WHr) or its mAh @ a defined voltage. Just milliamp hours is a meaningless metric.
Alright we have one 111Wh, two 74Wh and one 37Wh power banks on sale 🙂
Romoss Sense 8+ 18W 30000mAh Power Bank Was $33 in Aug last year.
Please do a better deal if possible.
It’s not possible at this stage as the prices to ship power banks to AU skyrocketed. That’s the main reason why it’s been so long since a Romoss deal… it’s taken a long time to actually get them into AU at an affordable rate.
Why not use the Gooloo 2000A?
15W USB Type-C charging is nothing compared to 45W. It is afterall a jump starter with a few extra features.
Any deal for this one? The 60W version.
Wrong store buddy 🙂
my bad. 😀
Anyone know if the PDD20 supports PPS for Samsung phones to get super fast charging?
Holy cow! Charges a laptop.
Is this a good brand?
It’s an awesome brand!
Will the 50W charge a Dell XPS 13?
Should be, both the XPS and this power bank support USB Type C PD (Power Delivery).
Actually depends on which generation of XPS you have, older ones wouldn’t have Type C PD.
New model. Not bad at all.
Nothing will ever beat the $20 kogan QB23 deal though.
Bought 1 from a previous deal about 6 months ago, have worked it hard and still get 5 full charges off it for my Note 9.
very good piece of kit.
