Summer is here, the holiday season. With good weather, nature trips, fishing, camping and other activities break into our lives. How to solve the problem with the autonomy of various devices? The answer is in this review.
We tested an external battery from NOVOO with a capacity of 80,000 mAh – this is a real portable “power station” with a full socket and a large number of USB-C ports.
The device is delivered in a cardboard box with all the basic information printed on it. Inside, the external battery is securely fixed with foam panels – nothing dangles. Included with the “power station” the manufacturer put a high-quality nylon case, documentation and two charging cables that can be used with a regular electrical outlet or cigarette lighter hole in a car.
Appearance and ergonomics
At first glance, the massive case of NOVOO immediately catches the eye. You immediately understand that in front of you is a serious thing with a decent supply of capacity. The dimensions of the device are 230 x 203 x 140 mm. All main controls are located on the front panel.
On the side there is a bright LED flashlight with a power button. There are four large anti-slip feet on the bottom surface at the corners. They provide the gadget with a reliable and stable location.
For ease of movement, NOVOO has equipped the power bank with a strong handle that is attached to the top surface. The element is necessary, since the weight of the device is 3.4 kg, it is not possible to carry it with two hands. The body is made in black with orange details that highlight important design elements.
As for interfaces and connectors, as mentioned above, they are located on the front surface. In the upper left corner is a large power button, which is hard to miss. Opposite to it is a port for charging the battery. Between them is a backlit LCD screen.
The middle section houses all output connectors, including a traditional 230V outlet, a car outlet with a rubber plug, 3 USB-A and one USB-C with Power Delivery support. Connectors are divided into categories in which there is a corresponding on and off button. It is very comfortable. Information about the activation of the corresponding power section appears on the screen of the external battery.
A full charge from 0 to 100 percent at home takes about 7.5 hours. In the car, this process took just over 9.5 hours. As for battery life, in my opinion, the most interesting feature of the NOVOO charger is the presence of a full-fledged outlet. Thus, you are practically not constrained by the application scenario. The socket provides output power up to 300 watts.
The car connector on the device in the form of a cigarette lighter supports voltage up to 17 V with current up to 10 A. Separately, it is worth listing a large set of USB ports. The bottom two give out a maximum power of 12W, above them is Quick Charge 3.0 in blue at 18W, and a little higher – USB-C up to 45W. In total, the power bank can provide about 450W of power output.
In terms of application scenarios, the device can also be used as a backup battery. For example, when there were short-term problems with electricity in a country house. Another important advantage of the NOVOO battery is its fast turn-on.
