It’s probably a good time to go with my Apollo Max Power Bank Review where I discuss every little benefit this wonder device holds. So, here I go!
We were all pretty hyped by the announcement of the Note 10+ back in August. The 45W charging feature boosted the expectations way up there!
At the time of launch, everyone expected that all that you’ll need was the power delivery of common standards. Which would have been great.
But oh wait! We’re talking about Samsung here. They just had to pull us all our hopes back to the dirt by telling us that it will use the standard of PPS USB power delivery.
And guess what? you just won’t get that much speed from wall chargers and local power banks.
Well, the “Power Play” changed with the arrival of the Apollo Max.
Everything was all said and done in the recent indiegogo campaign. This hell of a power bank has a power output that goes up to 60 Watts! They even overwhelmed the competition with a whopping 100W input.
They definitely didn’t mess around with their “Power Play” when they included a PPS support. This thing can charge the Note 10+ with its maximum capacity.
A month of using this power bank convinced me into believing that these guys mean serious business.
How Fast is the Apollo Max?
The specs offered insanely fast features and they lived up to expectations rather well. It juiced up my Note 10+ and revived it while not even taking a whole hour to do it.
I don’t drain the power bank dry. I usually just have to use 3-5000mAh of the full capacity. The rest I like to keep for my gaming sessions.
It did charge very fast nevertheless by the 45W and 60W wall chargers we use at home. So, in terms of getting charged up and providing power it definitely proved itself to be one of the fastest out there.
Apart from charging the Note 10+ this thing is very well off to support laptop users too. Just because you can depend on it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to power up a running Alienware monster in a jiffy.
What I’m trying to say is, it offers great support in practical cases.
The support for 60W PD output definitely can keep your MacBook alive the final moments of your editing. So yeah, you are looking at a life saver when it comes to emergencies.
I know what you are wondering about. How fast can I fully charge the power bank? To your great relief I have to let you know that, you can go 100% with a 100W output in just about 20 minutes.
I should also say that Elecjet uses a double battery config and a graphene cooling layer. This prevents the Apollo Max from overheating when you are going “Full On” with it.
The Heavy Price of Being Awesome
Well, this power bank does offer top speeds when it comes to charging the Note 10+ at 45 watts. But this outstanding performance comes at a price. I’m not talking about you having to break the bank.
What I’m trying to say here is that you have to deal with its larger size and heft.
Fitting all that technological goodness into a power bank will inevitably make it thicker and stouter. It might seem as double the size of what we usually see with these specs and capacity.
It will slip in your pockets nevertheless without any sort of problem. Just make sure you are wearing your belt (No joke).
As far as weight is concerned, you should know that the 100W charger review unit came with is a chonker. The 100W chargers are not particularly sleek and small, even Elecjet is helpless on that part.
I’d personally recommend using a 45W charger for normal usage. Keeping in mind I like to keep things light.
The 45W charger might be slower than the 100W one but it does the job well. It’s a personal choice. I used the 45W one for my Apollo Max Power Bank Review. What you want to use is totally up to you.
Concluding My Apollo Max Power Bank Review
The Indiegogo campaign is planned for February and there is a possibility of unwanted delay. The Apollo Max power bank will become handier in the upcoming year given the fact that it provided PPS support for the first time.
With the primary aspect of fast power delivery and fast power input in mind. The Apollo Max gets a 4 out of five score from my side. All in all, it is a “Great Value” product.
