Zendure A8 QC 26800mAh Quick Charge 3.0 Power Bank Review

Written by

We’re really like the design of Zendure’s stylish power banks, ultra-compact, ultra-tough, and loaded with features. The A8 QC is one of the fastest charging external battery in the market for its capacity, thanks to the certified Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Technology. With 26,800 mAh capacity, this monster power bank can easily extend your phone usage 7-9 times and takes only 10-12 hours to charge using a QC3.0 charger. This A8 QC portable external battery charger can be your weekend buddy, and keep you go longer without recharging.

The A8 QC sits at the top of Zendure’s line-up with a 26,800 mAh capacity and a Quick Charge 3.0 technology, it only takes only about 10 hours to full charge with a QC2.0 or 3.0 charger, 2x faster than other products on the market. The dedicated QC 3.0 Port can output 5-6V/3.0A,6-9V/2.0A,9-12V/1.5A (18W Max) when connected to a compatible QC3.0 device. The other three ports with ZEN+ Technology automatically detect your device and fine tune the output to charge it at maximum speed (up to 5V/3.1A). It charges the iPhone 6s 9 times, the Galaxy S6 over seven times or the 2015 MacBook more than three times.

The A8 QC battery will automatically turn itself on when connected to a compatible device for charging, then switch back to standby when charging is complete. Zendure A8 QC also supports pass-through charging (only works when you use a QC3.0 charger to charge the A8 QC.), which means you can plug it into the mains and a phone or tablet into one of its outputs and both devices will charge. In charge-through mode, this input will operate a little faster, but the A8 QC will use only the power not required by your device, meaning your attached device will charge at full speed before the Zendure does.

One feature we particularly like in the A8 QC over the others external battery charger is the digital LCD screen. You can get an exact readout of how much capacity remains, so you won’t get caught short. This is a much more user-friendly solution than the four LEDs used by most power banks to show remaining charge. The Zendure A8 QC will begin charging a mobile device as soon as it is plugged in, and unlike many other power banks on the market, there’s no built-in LED flashlight for it to activate.

For a huge 26,800 mAh capacity power bank, we think its 1.1 pounds weight and 4.7 x 2.9 x 1.6 inches dimensions are impressive. You might not want to slip it into a pocket, but throwing it in a bag or rucksack is no problem. The A8 QC perfect balance between durability and style, encased in a crush proof PC/ABS composite material with dual-injection molding and a shock-absorbing central belt make it one of the most durable and yet stylish external batteries available.

The Zendure A8 QC Series is compatible with almost all Apple and Android smartphones, tablets and other USB-charged devices. However, some low-power devices are not supported if they draw less than 120mA of power.

Conclusion

Very well designed with excellent features including pass-through charging and an LCD panel, a tough build, very durable and huge amounts of power. If you love to travel and heavy use your smartphone, this is a great power bank for you.
