Now the charging speed of laptops and Smartphones has exceeded 100W. Although charging will indeed be much faster, the premise is that there must be compatible charging accessories. For most users, official fast Chargers and power banks are obviously not the first choice. Firstly, the price is generally high, and secondly, the compatibility is average. They can usually only be used within the same brand. If you look carefully, you will find them. I found that there are many excellent quality third-party accessories available on the market.
AOHi is definitely one of them because it is an established manufacturer of power banks, USB chargers, and other mobile technologies. It is a new brand that emerged this year, but the AOHi technology behind it has been a supplier of chargers to many phone brands (Xiaomi, Huawei, OPPO, etc.). Now, this brand has built up advanced technology and a good reputation in the industry.
Currently, this 30000mAh Power Bank is available on iaohi.com at the price of $84.99 (instead of $139.99), after redeeming the coupon code: AOHI3W.
By the way, today I’m reviewing what I’ve started calling their ‘AOHI Magcube P30’ power bank, although the company refers to it as the somewhat cumbersome ‘30000mAh Power Bank with 100W PD charging’. To know more about it, join us as we delve into the features and capabilities of this remarkable Power Bank.
The AOHi MAGCUBE P30 packaging follows the brand’s signature simplicity in design. It prominently displays product images on the front, along with brand and product-related information. Notably, it emphasizes the 30000mAh capacity and PD100W fast charging, which are the key selling points of this powerhouse.
Turning to the back, you’ll find detailed product specifications and other relevant information. Additionally, there’s the gallium nitride logo, shedding light on how this power bank manages to balance size, capacity, and power.
Upon opening the package, you’ll discover the AOHi MAGCUBE P30 itself. There’s also a 100W charging cable, which comes in a separate yellow box. The package includes an instruction manual.
The AOHi MAGCUBE P30 power bank has a surprisingly compact size, measuring 153X88X25mm, considering its 30000mAh capacity and 100W two-way fast charging capability. In terms of design, it’s quite distinctive. The shell combines silver-gray aluminum, reminiscent of Apple computers, with a sandblasting and anodizing process for excellent heat dissipation and corrosion resistance. The metal texture adds to the overall aesthetic.
On one side, you’ll find the “MAGCUBE P30” branding. The frame consists of PC+ABS material, known for its high heat resistance, fire resistance, and flame retardancy.
The interface design features 1C1A, meaning both ports support fast charging. The type-C port offers a maximum input and output of 100W, while the type-A port supports up to 18W. Simultaneous charging from both ports supports 65W + 18W, catering to diverse user needs.
The other side features a power button and battery indicator lights. These four lights, numbered 1 to 4, indicate battery levels: 1 light for 0-25%, 2 lights for 26-50%, 3 lights for 51-75%, and 4 lights for 76-100%. It’s a straightforward and intuitive system.
The net weight of the power bank is approximately 558 grams.
The charging cable appears to be well-crafted, with a soft wire that’s more manageable than braided cables.
Its measured length is approximately 103cm.
Let’s start by examining the protocols supported by the type-C port. In practical testing, it can perfectly handle mainstream protocols like PD, QC, PPS, and FCP, with only a few private protocols posing challenges. The overall performance is impressive.
Charging my Lenovo Xiaoxin 10th-gen notebook, which doesn’t natively support Type-C charging, was made possible with a dedicated Lenovo decoy cable. The voltage was correctly identified at 20V, and the current ranged between 2A and 3A, maintaining charging power above 40W throughout the process. The combination of the notebook’s built-in battery and the 30000mAh power bank can easily sustain a full day of laptop use on the go.
Charging my 2019 iPad Air yielded a voltage reading of 15V and a current of 1.5A (with the tablet’s battery at around 61%). Apple products, known for their charging compatibility, had no issues here, making for a seamless experience.
After a few days of use, I discovered a new application—pairing the power bank with the XGIMI Z6 projector. Although this projector falls into the micro-projection category and lacks an internal battery, it can easily be transformed into a wireless device with the AOHi MAGCUBE P30.
The projector consumes about 50W, and the fully charged power bank provides extended operation.
The standout feature of this AOHi power bank is its type-C port’s support for two-way 100W fast charging. In actual testing, both charging and discharging power stabilized at around 95W.
In summary, the AOHi MAGCUBE P30 power bank boasts exceptional performance. I’ve been using it daily this week, and it hasn’t needed daily recharging. For light users, a power bank of this caliber should easily last a week or more. Plus, its fast-charging capabilities make it a reliable savior when your mobile device runs low on power during outdoor activities. Winter weather often takes a toll on battery life, making it essential to have an extra power bank, and this 30000mAh MAGCUBE model from AOHi stands out as a high-end option in the market.
