Let's take a closer look at the user experience of the Soodatek 20W Magnetic Wireless Power Bank. ChargerLAB provides comprehensive details on the charger's compatibility with various devices, and its charging efficiency.
Charging Compatibility Test
The compatibility test phase can clearly show the charging situation of the Soodatek 20W Magnetic Wireless Power Bank for various types of devices. ChargerLAB will use dozens of devices to test with the power bank to present real testing data to the readers.
Charging an iPhone 14, the charging power measured by the POWER-Z KM003C tester is 9.22V 1.85A 17.07W.
For a Xiaomi 11, the measured charging power is 8.42V 2.58A 21.69W.
When summarizing the data in a table, it can be seen that most devices support charging at 9V2A.
When presented in a bar chart, it is clear that the power of the power bank charging various devices is between 10-22W, and the highest power is when charging a Xiaomi 11, which is 21.69W.
Full Charging Test
To simulate the daily use of the power bank by users, ChargerLAB tested the charging and discharging process of the power bank. Apple's 35W charger was used to charge it, and the specific test data are as follows.
After being connected to the power supply, the voltage level is 9V, and the power is stable at around 12W for the first 1 hour and 13 minutes. Then, the power gradually decreases until the power bank is fully charged, which takes about 2 hours and 17 minutes.
When presented in a curve chart, it can be visually seen that it takes 51 minutes for the Apple 35W charger to charge the Soodatek 20W Magnetic Wireless Power Bank to 50%, 1 hour and 23 minutes to charge it to 80%, and 2 hours and 17 minutes to fully charge it.
Conversion Efficiency Test
Conversion efficiency is an important factor in measuring the quality of a power bank. The efficiency of the power bank is different when outputting at different voltage levels. The higher the output efficiency, the higher the conversion rate, and the less heat generated. This time also tested the output efficiency of this power bank at different output voltage levels.
Firstly, let the power bank continuously output at a power of 5V2.4A 12W until the battery is depleted, which ended in 1 hour and 02 minutes. The actual discharged battery energy was about 12.4107Wh, so the efficiency of the power bank when outputting at 5V2.4A 12W is about 12.4107/18=68.95%.
Next, let the power bank continuously output at a power of 9V2.22A 20W until the battery is depleted. During the process, it automatically switches to the 5V, and cannot continuously output at 9V 2.22A 20W.
Finally, let the power bank continuously output at a power of 12V1.67A 20W until the battery is depleted. During the process, it automatically switches to the 5V, and cannot continuously output at 12V 1.67A 20W.
Summary of ChargerLAB
The Soodatek 20W Magnetic Wireless Power Bank comes in a gray-white color and boasts a design similar to the MagSafe charging logo found on official Apple phone cases.
