Measurements


Blitzwolf%20QC3%20power%20bank%205200mAh%20BW-P4%20QC5V%20load%20sweep

The output is rated for 3A and can deliver 3.2A before it starts dropping, overload kicks in at 3.5A, this looks good.

Blitzwolf%20QC3%20power%20bank%205200mAh%20BW-P4%20QC9V%20load%20sweep

QC at 9V is rated for 2A and can deliver 2.2A before it starts dropping.

Blitzwolf%20QC3%20power%20bank%205200mAh%20BW-P4%20QC12V%20load%20sweep

QC at 12V is rated for 1.5 and can deliver 1.7A.

Blitzwolf%20QC3%20power%20bank%205200mAh%20BW-P4%20usb%20out%2010ohm

The power bank can deliver 0.5A for about 6˝ hour.

Blitzwolf%20QC3%20power%20bank%205200mAh%20BW-P4%20usb%20out%205ohm

At 1A the runtime is down to 3 hours and some minutes.

Blitzwolf%20QC3%20power%20bank%205200mAh%20BW-P4%20usb%20out%202ohm

At 2A it is 1 hour and 15 minutes and the output is stable until the power bank is empty.

Quick charge at 9V and 0.9A can be delivered for nearly 2 hours.

The input current is a bit abouve the rated 2A, at the peak it is nearly 2.3A. This means less than 2˝ hour for charging.

Using a charge with less current, low output voltage or a long charge lead requires a lot of patience because the charger turns the current way down. With 0.5ohm in series with the 5V power supply it took more than 6 hours to charge.



Conclusion

The power bank can deliver rated current, has fairly low noise and has quick charge, I would have liked higher capacity batteries and less voltage sensitivity when charging.

I will call it a good power bank.



Notes

The power bank was supplied by Banggood for review.
