The main catch of this battery is its appealing LED and diverse voltage output coupled with a beefy capacity of 32000mAh. It can handle smartphones, 5V USB devices, laptops, tablets, and CPAP machines, you name it. It boasts a relatively high power conversion efficiency of about 85% which is impressive per se. It is accentuated by a fast and stable charging via three outlets; one DC output and two USB ports which allow three devices to charge from the power bank simultaneously.
Moving onto the small display screen on the device, as its name connotes, it indicates the remaining percentage of power in the form a power gauge/bar which steps down at every 1% drop in power instead of showing 3 typical bricks. It has heartening flexibility with regards to voltage outputs, displaying 5V /9V/12V/16V/19V/20V switching system, allowing connection with a diverse number of devices with their respective voltage requirements. Not to mention, it comes with 10 different plugs/connectors for different laptop models. Just press the power key to cycle through different voltage ranges and view the remaining power and voltage setting. Moreover, it embodies multiple protective features such as over-charge protection, over-current protection, over-voltage protection, over-temperature protection, and short circuit protection for longer safety of the device.
What’s more, its battery is anti-explosion, which charges at 18.5 volts, so as long as your device being charged is below 18.5 volts, the battery can be charged and provide power through the connector at the same time. Things would a bit different with devices higher than 19 volts, the battery will deplete while charging even with concurrent charging. The battery takes 6 and a half hours to reach 100% which will suffice for 16 to 20 hours of CPAP (without dehumidifier and heat), no wonder this power bank is highly acclaimed among the CPAP users. It is covered by an aluminum body which ensures a better heat dissipation. Lastly, this battery pack exceeds the 100 Wh limits for traveling so you have to obtain permission from the airline to take up to 2 of them with you as a carry-on and requires packaging according to IATA guidelines. To recapitulate the above context, this is a great product for CPAP as well as mobile, tablet and laptop users. It may not pack the monstrous battery capacity like Maxoac but still manages to deliver more stable and clean power to your device.
iMuto power banks are supplemented by an intelligent internal circuitry which promptly adjusts itself according to your mobile device’s required current or voltage requirements to confer fastest possible charging, from any USB power source, for your device whether it be 5V, 9V, or 12V. This Qualcomm 3.1 certified device encompasses a high capacity of 30000mAh which can handle three devices simultaneously with each device receiving its optimum voltage.
Its built-in A-class lithium polymer batteries can charge a 2016 MacBook 2 times, iPhone 7 and 6 almost 10 times, Galaxy S7 for almost 6.5 times, and the iPad Air for almost 2.5 times. You will require a iMuto USB to USB Type-C cable to charge your Nintendo Switch. Let it charge overnight and feed your numerous devices with this bad boy. Taking a look at its outputs, they’ve aggregated multiple USB A ports and a USB Type-C port for newer devices.

Small yet robust and powerful, yes, this battery lives up to this phrase thoroughly. It packs 30000mAh capacity which can nourish your iPhone 6s 11.5 times, Galaxy S7 Edge 5.5 times, iPad Mini 3 times, etc. Its strongest forte, the robust charge/recharge speed compared to rest of the battery packs.
