QC 2/3 power bank that supports incoming QC/USB-C charging?

Has anyone found a power bank that meets all of the following criteria?

 

 - Supports QC outgoing as well as input charging, whether just QC2 or QC3 as well

 

-  Supports both USB-C out *and* in ports for charging the power bank as well

 

 

The one I've found online is by Choetech, but it seems to be sold out:

Ironically, I checked the Choetech pack I'd previously referenced today and Amazon actually has them back in stock, and at a discount for Prime members, only $26.99 with 2-day shipping.  I just ordered one.

How has it worked out for you?

There is a newer QC 3.0 version of the Chotech that is higher capacity in the same form factor. Something interesting I have noticed is that it will charge at up to 2.6 amps from a non quick charge adapter, which is basically the same speed it will charge from a quick charge port (9v 1.5a). There is no USB C port on it though, just a lightening input for iPhone users.

I somehow missed this, but the Choetech bank worked outstanding from a device charging perspective, but the fact you still have to rely on a micro usb cable for incoming charging still sucks.  

 

I'm still trying to keep an eye out for a new bank that has USB-C input Quickcharge charging and a standard USB Quickcharge out port though.  If anyone finds one with at least 10k mAh, please post it here.

I have this one. It's about $10 more currently than when I bought it. It holds an insane capacity and works great. Only downside is it's definitely too big for pocket.

Edit: oops I realize someone already posted that one earlier.

That's a good one too in most respects except for, again, the fact that it still relies on a micro USB in for charging the bank.

No it can use micro USB or USB-C. The pack automatically determines which direction to use the USB-C port. I only charge mine with USB-C.

Does it support QC input charging via the Type C though?

 

This to me is the absolute key factor - it can take a very long time to charge a larger bank with normal charging speed vs. QC charging.  My Choetech supports incoming QC charging, but still forces you to use a micro cable to do it.  I want something I only ever have to use/bring one cable for if/when traveling.

It will charge at 5V 3A over USB-C. It's USB-PD, not QC necessarily, but is almost as fast. Check to see if your USB C charger lists 5V 3A as an output (15W). V * A will give you a number you can use to compare the QC output of your charger to get an idea of relative speed. dc402e52cece50f83daab86d423fe5cb.jpg

I have this one and didn't know that... Ha! Thanks for that info.

You are not going to find one that has QC1/2/3 on the USB C as QC is not supported on USB C only USB-PD. If an device does QC on USB C it is not USB-IF certified.

Not sure I'm following you here...QC works fine over a Type C connector.  Where are you getting that from?

    • Let me take a look tonight. 
    • Actually, I notice it says whole clusters were skipped because of invalid TAC values.  It says "File exported for inspection."  I do have Log Sites with Missing TAC checked. Robert
    • I was able to figure this out by looking at your diagnostic reports -- you're seeing n7 because your Galaxy A32 is reporting it natively as n7.. Samsung will have to fix that on their end unfortunately. Do the engineering screens report it correctly? I have an A32 test device but I have not seen it connect to n41 (or "n7") yet. If I do, I'll try to troubleshoot and nag Samsung. EDIT: After I installed the new Android 12 update, I'm now seeing the n7 bug too -- I will reach out to Samsung. They were very responsive when I reported some related glitches with the initial A32 software.
    • I appreciate the feedback today -- another new is SCP beta rolling out right now! It should resolve the force closes that started with yesterday's beta release; I also made additional improvements that hopefully(?) will reduce ongoing issues with overall app stability.
    • I'm noticing a spike in instability while driving around testing the app today also.. more freeze-ups than crashes, but it's probably all related. Hopefully any crash reports that are collected can shed some light on it for me. I'll be looking into it later tonight.
