Crave PLUS Pro Portable Charger Review

Expecting to spend prolonged durations of time away with no access to power? Whether camping or hiking, the Crave Plus Pro Portable Charger can be a lifesaver! In fact, you should make it a point to integrate this portable charger into your packing list every time you plan a long outdoor expedition or out-of-town travel. The Crave Plus Pro is built for reliability, longevity, and comfort. 

The Crave Plus Pro Portable Charger is yet another impressive member of the Crave portable chargers family. However, this model stands out for its superior battery capacity, giving you a more generous charging capability. 

It has a 20,000 mAh battery capacity enough to fuel most portable devices and offers a power delivery of up to 45W.  The powerful charger makes for a great tool during travel, fishing, backpacking, or even running errands on a weekend for long hours. 

But, it is not only the battery’s high capacity that makes the Pro model an excellent investment. Its versatile charging potential also increases its value. You can use the power bank for most portable devices, including your apple and Samsung devices, fish finders, GPS, and smartwatches. 

Furthermore, the power bank’s high capacity allows it to act as a reliable external battery pack for your laptop and other latest laptop brands. The external battery pack works with all laptops that require the PD Type-C output. 

The power bank features an advanced Fast Charge IC technology to optimize its functions. It also integrates a dual quick charge QC3.0 port design and power delivery PD Type-C port IN/OUT. This means the battery pack can recharge USB and Type-C devices.

In addition to its versatile charging capacity, what makes the Crave Plus Pro unique is its ultra compact and portable design. The charger measures 7 inches long, 3.2 inches wide, and 0.72 inches thick, so you can even fit it into your backpack or hiking pants pocket. The portable charger also fits comfortably in your cabin luggage for convenient travel. 

Nonetheless, its rugged aluminum casing survives trips in the rough outdoors and backcountry. But, it’s important to note that the 16-ounce portable charger doesn’t feature a waterproof construction. So, you want to keep it away from water. If you plan on taking the charger to your fishing or kayaking trip, you should securely store it away in a dry bag or pack.

Usability: 99% – The external battery pack comes with great usability, thanks to its impressive battery capacity. The charger’s versatility eliminates the need to invest in multiple charging systems for different devices.  The portable charger features three charging ports, two of which are USB-A ports and one USB-C with PD. The best part about the two USB-A ports is that they feature a Quick charge design. The charger works for laptops, smartphones, and other smaller portable devices. So, investing in it eliminates clutter typically brought on by multiple charger wires. Due to its high power output, the battery pack covers a wide range of portable devices, including Macbooks, most new laptop models, android, and apple devices. You can also use the battery pack to recharge portable speakers, fish finders, GPS, smart watches, and similar portable devices. The battery pack’s 20,000mAh battery power allows you to fully charge a laptop and fully charge most smartphones up to four times. You will also find four power capacity indicators so you can track its usage and know how long you can use the power bank. In addition to its versatile charging capability, the battery pack’s slim profile also improves its usability. The compact and slim design makes it convenient to take with you anywhere. You can fit it in your clothing pockets or a small pack for convenient access. The smaller battery pack size also lets you fit it into your cabin luggage so you can use it whenever you need to. However, the power bank package doesn’t include a power delivery wall charger. So you have to invest in a separately sold one if you want to recharge it at power delivery speeds. Therefore, charging the power bank requires that you purchase the wall charger.

Durability: 97% – The Crave Plus Pro Portable Charger features a durable aluminum casing construction which gives it a relatively light but excellent hold on to the battery pack. The aluminum construction also allows the battery pack to survive bumps, bangs and scratches outdoors. However, the aluminum casing is not waterproof, so you want to keep it away from wet conditions. If you plan on taking it fishing or hiking in the rain, you should conceal it in a dry pack or any other waterproof storage. Additionally, the external battery pack is designed to preserve as much energy and its design prevents power loss. To start charging any device, you have to press the button on the power bank first. So, you don’t have to worry about randomly charging a connected phone without prompting to do so. You will however notice that the battery pack gets a little hot when you use it for prolonged durations.  You can let it rest for a while before resuming its usage. Nonetheless, you will not experience this issue when recharging a power delivery compatible device or smartphone.
