Hey gang, Valkor here. Since the start of TOV, I’ve always covered portable battery packs. And there have been many who’ve wondered why. And the answer is simple: because there’s a need for them. Even at a time where technology has improved portable devices to where we can spend less time away from an outlet and more time making moves, there’s still a need. And that's because you’re either rocking an older model something, or you’re a heavy user, regardless the need is still there. And so long as there is a need, I’ll keep on covering them. And with that, the folks at myCharge is back in the Val-Cave with two serious contenders to win your dollars. And win they shall. First out of the box is the heavy hitter—the RazorExtreme PD Portable Charger!
The RazorExtreme PD is, legit, a brick of a portable charger! It’s like if you took myCharge’s RazorMax, then added some length, width, and weight to it and boom! RazorExtreme PD! On the outside and the top you have two USB ports and one USB Type-C that’s used to charge the pack or it can charge devices that use Type-C to charge, such as small laptops. You also have indicator lights and a power button. Thankfully, when you plug a device into the charger, it automatically springs to life. Internally, RazorExtreme PD is packing capacity of 26,800 mAh, which means it can not only charge multiple devices but devices of different sizes such as two smartphones. smartphone/tablet, smartphone/laptop, etc. I also used it to power up my Nintendo Switch, and it’s the perfect bring-a-long to sustain my entertainment during my travels.
To test the RazorExtreme PD, I used it mostly with my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 during my commute; I know that’s a bit “extreme” of a portable pack to take along, especially given its weight. However, there have been times I’ve gotten the Note 9 to the lowest of low before reaching an outlet. Thankfully, I’ve made it just in time. In the cave, I gave the RazorExtreme an hour with the Galaxy Note 9 at 53% and ended up at 82%, which not bad given that the Note 9 can go the distance. .
It may be bulky, it may be heavy, but myCharge’s RazorExtreme PD will rank as one of the best power banks you can have at your side. It’s a great way to ensure that multiple devices are kept up to snuff, so they’ll be ready when you need them most. Charging is fairly quick, and it’ll take pretty much whatever you toss it. I even charged my phone while also charging my 1More Stylish True Wireless headphones. And when both were finished, it left the RazorExtreme with plenty of power to spare. Given the size and weight of the pack, the RazorExtreme isn’t really for casual use, but more for users who take along multiple devices or spend plenty of time outdoors. Nintendo Switch users will also get lots of usage from the pack, as it’s the perfect pack to have when traveling and you don’t have access to an outlet. In the end, myCharge RazorExtreme PD is a beast of a portable charger and one you’ll want at the ready whenever the need for more power arises!
It’s still plenty heavy and bulky, so be mindful where you store the RazorExtreme PD when you bring it along on your travels. You want to make sure that whatever device you’re using along with the pack isn't too close to the power bank. Because if things rattle too much, then your device may receive some damage. This isn’t really a negative towards the pack, just a word of caution.
If you think you’re ready to take your charging to the “extreme,”, then you’ll want to invest in the myCharge RazorExtreme PD portable charger. It has enough stored within it to tackle multiple devices of different sizes, and it charges fast enough to have you going the distance and back again. The holidays are coming up, so you might want to treat yourself or a friend to one of these babies. I highly recommend it. So, out of TOV 5 stars, I’m giving myCharge RazorExtreme Portable Charger a 4.5.
