Graphene power banks are the latest smash hit in mobile technology, mostly due to their advantages over traditional power banks. They are lighter, smaller, and last a lot longer.
The Flash 2.0, a USB-C graphene 210w power bank, is one great example. This graphene power bank offers plenty of power for its compact size. In fact, it can even charge a MacBook Pro, which is something not many other power banks can do. Utilising Panasonic graphene batteries, this compact and powerful power bank does stand out from the rest.
Today, we will review the Flash 2.0 to help you decide whether you need this pricey but powerful bank.
1. The features
The device has two USC-C and two USB-A ports, allowing connectivity to multiple devices. It also has a wireless charging pad, allowing you to charge any compatible devices. You will also find an LED indicator above the wireless charging pad to indicate battery levels within the power bank. Weight-wise, the entire package comes at approximately 0.45 kilograms or a pound.
As for its dimensions, the device measures 14.5 cm by 7.9 cm with a thickness of approximately 2.5 cm. Size-wise, it is quite big, which can make it less portable than other units. However, it is still relatively compact, considering its power. Just do not treat it as you would a small power bank. You will want to carry this thing inside a backpack.
2. The design
As for the design of the Flash 2.0, it comes in four colours: blue, yellow, black, or grey. Regardless of colour, the case uses coated aluminium flushed with the other glass and plastic surfaces on the power bank.
Because it is made out of coated aluminium, the power bank is already quite durable. However, the finish itself does raise some concerns, as it seems to be prone to bumps, scratches, and the like. However, despite the possible damage to the coating, the aluminium is sure to stay intact, protecting the powerful battery cells inside.
3. The charging
When it comes to charging, the power bank can charge up to five devices at once. Four devices can charge from the ports, and one device on the wireless charging pad. However, there are some cases where, when connected to the USB-C, the device being charged might be treated as a power source instead. A fix to this problem is to switch to one of the USB-A ports. You can also tweak the settings on your phone or computer to ensure the right device is being charged.
Up to 100w can be connected to the device to charge it. Its USB-C ports also allow pass-through charging, meaning that you can charge the power bank while it is charging other devices.
In summary, the Flash 2.0 is an excellent device that offers plenty of charging options and plenty of power. The device provides many benefits such as 100w output from a single port, cool temperatures throughout its use, an integrated wireless charger, and more. The only drawback to the power bank is the fact that it is quite expensive.
Nevertheless, if you have the money and need a one-stop-shop portable power bank solution to charge your laptop, phones, and watches all at the same time, the Flash 2.0 can satisfy your needs.
