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.

Cool, well whenever you can get logged into a computer it would be great if you can also post it under reviews. Its a good one and I want others to be able to find it for upcoming drops.

Thanks.

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!
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.

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

Sorry, that is not something we offer unless you wanted to order a container full of them ;)

I don't need that much battery life ^___^'
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.
