Howdy Everyone, We have extended this drop another day. There is only 100 units available and we would like to move them all. This will not extend estimated shipping times. Cheers.

I will do that, but it doesn't explain or justify not hearing from Massdrop in 4 days.

Oscar,
I apologize. Yesterday we had an issue where a member reported that Naztech was not responding. I assumed when you said no one had gotten back to you that you were also talking about that since you did not specify.
Our Community Support team should have reached out to you by now and I am sorry that they have not. If they had responded they would have given you the information that I did above. Since we have direct relationship with Naztech they will handle any service/warranty claims. I am sure based on the context of your support tickets that you sent to Massdrop that they will be providing you with a new unit.
Cheers.

It's under different brand though, not Naztech but HyperGear ;)
Has anyone taken this thing traveling internationally? I have a trip coming up in August and currently plan to take this with me, but am a bit concerned about the TSA taking it.
Hey all - I have a Lenovo P51s that isn't recognizing the charger over USB-C... ideas? It would be nice to not worry about charging my work laptop while traveling...

Hi, have you found a solution to the problem? Hi how many watt is the naztech power bank? I have HP Spectre 360 15t laptop with USB C port/ thunderbolt and I am not sure if this power bank would charge it. The battery I have in the laptop is 6 cell 84Wh li ion.

you should take a look at this product from Naztech. It will be back on a drop within the week: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/naztech-13400-26800mah-usb-c-pd-power-banks
The USB-C charging cable was missing from mine. How do I get a replacement?
Got my battery and it was clearly already opened... Any reason for this? Tampered Lithium batteries are the stuff of nightmares.

I work with the factory and you should ask for an exchange. Call this number (661) 310-1000 and ask for customer service.
How long does it take to charge the battery pack itself?
Oxide36
Initial full charge is about 8 hours, then 5-6 hours to recharge.
I received this power bank in the mail this morning from the recent drop. For some reason the percentage for the bank is staying at 78, never going to 100. Is that normal before its first full discharge(then recharge)? I haven't used its juice for my phone or tablet yet..just wondering.

I would try using a different charger. Once I started using my Anker charger it started to charge great. Still takes a long time though. Also I'm not using the naztech cable but an aftermarket cable as well
Ameixsell
Thanks for the info. Update on mine; after leaving it plugged in over night, it now shows that it's at 100, but haven't had a chance to test out it's charging ports yet.
Just completed my personal test of Naztech 26800 vs Anker 26800 PD (Power Delivery @ 30 watts). Controls: 1. Same USB-C port used on Macbook 2. Same Anker USB-C to USB-C cable used 3. Macbook placed in same location (never moved) 4. Naztech and Anker placed in same location while charging Macbook 5. USB-C cable plugged into power bank using same orientation 6. Both given 30 minutes to charge Macbook in sleep mode 7. Both battery packs near new condition and full charge before testing (both less than 30 days old)
Naztech results: Battery of Macbook before charging..~37% - After 30 minutes..~ 48% Anker results: Battery of Macbook before charging..~48% - After 30 minutes..~70%
Naztech charge = ~11% Anker PD charge = ~22%
Conclusion: Anker PD charged at twice the rate of Naztech.

To add to this, the main reason the Anker device charged faster is because the Anker device supports Power Delivery over Type-C, while the Naztech only supports 15W max over Type-C.
So the Anker charged at twice the rate because its PD spec supports up to 20V/1.5A, or 30W, literally double the speed of the Naztech.
What you need to consider in the end here is what you really need a power bank for. If you have a ton of 2-3 generation old cellphones and USB devices, you might want this Naztech power bank instead because it supports Quick Charge 3.0 where the Anker you mentioned doesn't. If you have current-gen Type-C smartphones, a Macbook, or something like a Nintendo Switch, buying a power bank that supports Power Delivery will benefit you equally or greater over this. (Or alternatively, you could shell out a bit more money and get a power bank with both QC3.0 and PD so you have both options available)
For example, my LG V30 supports both QC3.0 and PD, and charges at the same 18W rate on both, so it makes no difference to me which bank I use. My Nintendo Switch can make use of PD though and charge faster. So in the end, a PD device is better suited for me.
Just things for everyone to think about!

Hi how many watt is the naztech power bank? I have HP Spectre 360 15t laptop with USB C port/ thunderbolt and I am not sure if this power bank would charge it. The battery I have in the laptop is 6 cell 84Wh li ion.
Why does this only ship to the US?
Bare in mind that this power bank does NOT feature "Power Delivery" as it only pumps out about 12-13W (I doubt it will push a continuous 15W like the specs indicate). So it won't recharge a MacBook Pro like your normal power adapter will.
However, as Taiman below mentions, and I have observed with several other high capacity Type-C banks of my own, it will probably trickle charge a MacBook Pro, even while you are using it. But all that means is you'll be able to use it for longer and your internal battery drains just a little bit slower than normal. If you start out at 100%, and hook this up to it, you'll probably get an additional 2-2 1/2 hours of use out of the Mac until it shuts down (even if the power bank still has some charge left). But if you are already low on power when you attach this to your Mac, you will get very little benefit trying to use it with this setup.
Now if you are at 0% and don't need to use your Mac right away, plugging this in while the Mac sleeps or is shut down will recharge the internal battery, albeit very slowly. But it's better than nothing, especially when you are traveling and away from outlet power.
Otherwise, if you need 30W of recharging power while you use your computer, then look for banks that feature "Power Delivery". Currently Anker, Aukey, RAVPower, and others have this feature.

Great write-up on your part. It got me thinking about comparing my Anker PD vs Naztech. Just finished my semi-scientific test. Please see results above.

You know, I hate it when folks come into the forums here just to sneer, “Well, it’s only $XX on Amazon!” Sometimes they have a point, other times they’re comparing 🍎‘s to 🍊’s.
That said, and not as criticism of the NazTech product here, but, if you do require “Power Delivery” to charge a Type-C device like a Nintendo Switch or a MacBook Pro, Aukey has a coupon for 27% Off on their PB-Y7 which is 30,000 mAh and features “PD”. Look for the coupon link BELOW the normal price of $79.99. Click it and Redeem then add the item to your Cart. You won’t see the discount yet in your Cart but you will see it on the next screen after proceeding to “Checkout”. Before confirming the purchase you should see a $21.00 Discount in the summery making the cost about $59 instead of $80. Mine arrived yesterday.
It looks like a sweet deal for someone who needs a primary charger!
My only disappointment is the size and weight. •Weight: 1.3 lbs (0.6 kg) •Dimensions: 6.7 x 3 x 0.9 in (17 x 7.6 x 2.3 cm)
I already own a decent 20mah bank that is about the same size/weight, that was only $20 (albeit with slightly less reliable casing material - it has a small dent in it already). Unfortunately, I'll have to pass on this one.
AtriumXP
99% of power packs on the market use the same internal batteries: 18650s. It's why they all have the same increments of capacity.
So the size and weight are pretty much always going to be the same. Just in different shapes and with different chips/connectors.
Looks like a pretty good deal, seem to be $89 or $99 most places... think I'll go for one
the item description say it has 2 USB 3.0 + 1 USB-C outpout. I noticed the USB-C port has label "Input" above. Does this mean it is use for charging ONLY? Is this one usb-c port can be use for input+output?

The USB-C is both an input & output port. Kind regards-Tai

Why can't be shipped to Argentina?

I just flew United Airlines from San Francisco to Shanghai there and back with this exact battery and did not have a problem. You must carry on with you however. They will not allow you to check it.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Thanks a lot for the information! I will be getting this one for sure. Best regards
Received my battery a couple of days ago. Seems well constructed, and I love the digital readout. As Indianpoptart previously stated, battery takes about 3 hours to reach 100%. I also wanted to add something not previously known to me concerning this battery (wanted to know if it could charge a Macbook). I just purchased a 13” Macbook Pro with touch bar (2016 version) and wanted to see if this battery would charge it. Well, I am happy to report, it can charge my Macbook Pro via an Anker USB-C to USB-C cable. However, I did have to put my laptop into sleep mode (battery at 76%). After ~35 minutes, Macbook battery was at 87%. Confirming, the USB-C can function as a power source capable of charging a Macbook.

I'm in 4 1 :D
Just got mine, seems to be pretty good. Well built, came charged at around 68% and charged to 100 in about 3 hours. Will do further testing and update this
I have a Nexus 6 and I was able to get it to Turbo charge at 18W (9V@2A) charges from 20 to 100 in 18 minutes, not bad.
My drop got cancelled and was refunded. Anybody have the same experience?
Just purchased it. As soon as it comes in, I'll let everyone know. I work at a Verizon store, I have a Puregear 16000 mAh normally. We sell Mophie XXL. I've used basically every power pack we get, so I can get a pretty good idea of how this one works. I kill my battery on my Note 8 regularly. I use high drain apps (like Ingress) and so live by my power packs. Next report coming when I get the Pack
Tomonia
Did you receive it yet?
Can I request shipping to Asia for this?
Can I use it in cabin for flights?
Alan_G
Generally, batteries such as this are allowed only in the cabin and not in checked baggage. I normally bring my Anker Astro E7 on board and have no issues.
Does this have a quickcharge capability?
OhEmmBee
Read it. says 6 times
Nice to see a power bank offering post-2010 charging options for once!
Would love to have this shipped to EU.. any change of that happening?
Any chance we can get it shipped to Australia? Looks like a great drop...
Just got mine today. I plugged it in to its wall charger as it came with 69% (heh) but the "IN" for Input doesnt flash as the manual says it should when charging. Its been plugged in for roughly 15minutes and it hasnt moved from 69%.
Ill let it sit for a bit longer "charging", but so far Im not sure about this.
Gzuz
Just checked and it went up to 71%, so, I guess its working fine/just as intended. Probably takes a long time to charge due to the size.
Great drop!
What about the Note 8? Same story? This won't charge that in about 2.5 hrs?
Edit: never mind. This outputs more power than the charger that came with the Note 8, and quick charges it. So I'm not going to sweat it. I'm in.
Obviously I should do my own research, but barring that, is there any reason I should buy this over the anker usb type c 20100?
Hellreaver
I guess 6700mAh of extra power
USB-C Power Delivery and Qualcomm QuickCharge are mutually incompatible. This battery pack doesn't support USB-C PD, just the ordinary USB-C power that's only slightly souped up over conventional USB (15W vs 12W).
There are very few battery packs that support USB-C PD today. Anker's brick anchor and Mophie's XXL, and a couple other less distinguished ones, and they are all well above $100, This pack is not even remotely in the same category. The only USB-C benefit (hopefully) is that it will recharge faster than over micro-USB, on a 26,800 man pack that can mean hours shaved off.
Hopefully as new USB-C PD chipsets for battery packs become available, we will have more options and lower prices, but in any case I would not purchase a USB-C charger, battery pack or cable that hasn't been tested by Benson Leung of Google.

So are you saying that for USB-C based devices (like my Pixel 2 XL) I'll see no performance gain between this and and a "generic" power bank with some form for fast/QC?
Rochambeaux
Yes (if I can jump in without being rude!)... You want USB-C Power Delivery to obtain true "charging rapidly" status in a Pixel 2 (or Pixel 2 XL). You'd also want to ascertain that the output levels within the implemented USB-C PD model match the optimum level for these phones, otherwise you may still see "charging rapidly", but find your phone charging more slowly than with the OEM charger. USB-C Power Delivery compatible devices use specific charging profiles, e.g., at 9V, the device might draw 2A (total of 18W), while at 5V, the device might draw 3A (total of 15W) -- either of could qualify as USB-C PD, but if the device actually draws 18W it could potentially charge faster than a charger delivering 15W.
Personally - I ordered a couple of extra OEM chargers (from BestBuy) to use around the house, as well as some nice ones from Anker (they were on sale at Amazon a few weeks ago) -- these all work well. I've got a RAVPower "Turbo" RP-PB043 battery that holds 20100 mAh -- I think this model is still available online. This one supports QC 3.0 output, as well as Type-C Output: although the online material doesn't explicitly state "USB-C Power Delivery", the battery puts out 5V / 3A (15W) over USB-C, and triggers the Pixel 2 XL to state "Charging Rapidly" -- and indeed, the phone charges quite quickly, does not become hot, and all seems to work quite well. Additionally, you can charge that battery using QC 3.0 input -- AND I've tested and found that, like proper USB-C power connections, I can charge the battery quite rapidly by plugging one of my USB-C chargers into the USB-C port on the battery -- so it is, in fact, bi-directional. It seems that the RAVPower battery is, indeed, quite compatible with both QC 3.0 and USB-C Power Delivery.
That said -- this new battery is appealing -- but I'd like to know if it will actually support both QC 3.0 and USB-C Power Delivery, and at what V/A/W output profiles. If that info isn't available, the appeal is greatly limited for any of us using devices that rely on USB-C Power Delivery.
I would like to this product.
Too bad it does not ship to Australia......
