AUKEY PB-WL02I Magnetic Wireless Charging Power Bank
Overall, the Aukey PB-WL02i has the familiar shape of a 10,000mAh power bank, but in the middle there is an extra protruding circle. This is the location to place the 15W MagSafe-enabled wireless charger for iPhone 12 and 13 series models. Of course, you can still charge any device that uses other Qi wireless charging standards, it just can't breathe as tightly as MagSafe.
Take a look at the specifications of this battery:
- Model: PB-WL02i
- Capacity: 10000mAh / 36Wh
- Battery core: Li-Polymer
- Connectors: USB C (in – out), USB-A (in), Lightning (in)
- Included accessories: USB-A to C cable
Aukey PB-WL02i owns a small front screen that displays a lot of information including: Charging (in) or discharging (out); when used with a fast charging compatible device including a MagSafe charger, the word “FAST” will light up; when charging wirelessly, the wireless icon will appear; Of course, information about the remaining battery percentage of the power bank is indispensable.
This is one of the points I like about this battery, the information displayed on the screen will make it easier for you during use, control the battery capacity as well as recognize the charging status.
When charging wirelessly, you must press the power button to start the charging process. Tested with iPhone 13 mini, the magnetic attraction is strong enough for the phone to stick firmly to the power bank to limit the fall, of course if you want to use MagSafe charger, you must use a compatible case or have to remove the case. .
With a thin case, the charging process still takes place, but the magnet attraction is significantly reduced and the phone cannot be fixed. Therefore, it can be said that this battery was born almost destined for the iPhone 12/13 series.
A notable point on Aukey PB-WL02i is that this power bank also integrates Lightning in, ie if you use an iPhone, only a Lightning cable and a single Type-C charger are enough. When traveling for a long time, you do not need to bring a separate cable to recharge the power bank anymore. This I quite like on this power bank when it feels convenient, easy and does not have to carry many charging cables on a trip.
The ports on the top of the battery include a Lightning in (18W), USB Type C in (18W) – out (20W) port and a USB-A (22.5W) port. This capacity is enough to use with most mobile devices today.
The connection ports have specific capacity as follows:
- USB-C in: 5V-3A / 9V-2A / 12V-1.5A (Max 18W)
- Lightning in: 5V-2.4A / 9V-2A (Max 18W)
- USB-C out: 5V-3A / 9V-2.22A / 12V-1.67A (Max 20W)
- USB-A out: 5V-4.5A / 4.5V-5A / 9V-2A / 12V-1.5A (Max 22.5W)
On the back, the Aukey PB-WL02i has a small kickstand that pops out to keep the power bank tilted at a decent angle so you can watch movies. However, I find that there are many types of power banks that use vertical stands to be more convenient.
With a vertical stand you can use the phone vertically or horizontally, but with a horizontal stand like the Aukey PB-WL02i, you can only use it horizontally. But in general, the advice is still not to use it while charging, causing overheating, battery bottles, and potential risks.
In terms of weight, the Aukey PB-WL02i is not too light, nor is it really neat. The weight of this power bank is 241 grams, heavier than the usual weight of smartphones currently on the market. The battery is also roughly the same size as my iPhone 13 mini, quite small, but it feels like it's just like the normal power banks that we often use.
There are a lot of 10000mAh power banks out there right now that are just under 200g and extremely compact. Aukey PB-WL02i will be a great choice if you are using iPhone 12 or 13 series and you love the convenience, not having to carry many cables, cumbersome charging.
Otherwise, a wired power bank will still give faster charging speed, more compact and convenient options for pocket.
In general, the Aukey PB-WL02i is also integrated with a lot of interesting features, however, if it is to be the most suitable, it is still an iPhone 12/13 series user because it can take advantage of the fast charging feature as well as the MagSafe charger that can be used. available on this backup battery.
