RAVPower RP-PB13 14000mAh Power Bank Review

1

The RAVPower RP-PB13 is my second RAVPower Power Bank and also the largest. It packs in a massive 14000mAh of capacity which is enough for even the most power hungry collection of portable devices.

Whether you use smartphones, tablets, digital cameras or all three a power bank is an essential purchase to ensure you can keep those devices running when you are away from a power socket.

The Device

RAVPower RP-PB13 14000mAhAs is typical with these sort of batteries it includes two USB ports which are rated at 1A and 2A. You would use the 2A port fof larger devices such as tablets while using the 1A port for Smartphones. The microUSB charging port sits to the right of these two output ports.

The RP-PB13 also includes an ultrabright white LED which is activated by double-clicking the on/off switch. Perhaps not a feature you’ve worried about before but it is surprisingly useful once you know it is there. I’ve used it in the search for LEGO pieces under the sofa and adjusting PC cables under my desk.

The blue 4 LED strip lights up for a few seconds when you press the power buttons and indicates the remaining capacity in steps of 25%.

The mesh carrying pouch is useful as it allows you to keep the supplied USB cables and adapters with the power bank when not in use. When you need to use it you can be sure that you aren’t going to waste time looking for cables.

There is also a 8400mAh version of this unit but given the physical size is the same you might as well have the highest capacity possible.

As with all power banks you can’t cheat the laws of physics. 14000mAh is going to take a long time to recharge and you would be looking at 10+ hours with this product. For this reason I would recommend that you buy a power bank that suits your real requirements rather than just assuming “bigger is always better”.

However, if you need the capacity and want to support multiple devices then I would recommend this power bank.
