Review and Giveaway! 20,000 mAh Professional Power Pack by Roving Power

IMG_20130383

 

When the folks at Roving Power reached out to us to review one of their power packs, I jumped at the chance. When I came across their Professional monster I was sure the battery capacity was a typo. Twenty thousand (20,000) mAh! That’s over triple the juice of my other external battery so I couldn’t wait to try this behemoth out. Keep reading for details about how you can enter for a chance to win your very own Professional Power Pack courtesy of Roving Power.

Apart from the massive capacity, what sets this power pack apart from the…pack, is the ability to charge a laptop and other device simultaneously. You can even charge 1 or 2 devices while the pack itself is plugged into the wall, juicing itself up. Now that’s multitasking. I have tested out other products that shut down output while they are being charged.

As you can see in the above picture, the pack comes with a North American AC adapter used to charge the pack, a laptop charging cable with 8 adapter heads, and a soft carrying case. The aluminum encased device weighs in at 510 grams / 1 pound 2 oz. and is well constructed. It takes beween 4 and 6 hours to charge the pack and the discharge time completely depends on what it is used to charge and how often. There was an adapter head that fit my HP Pavilion G7 laptop perfectly.

I find using this power pack much more convenient than plugging the laptop into the wall. I liked being able to have the pack in the soft case to keep it protected. This is made possible due to all of the ports and the power button being on the same side.

To turn the pack on, hold the power button for about 2 seconds. It will default to 12V (laptop) and 5V (USB) output. To change the output to what works for your laptop, double tap the power button until the blue LED moves to the correct voltage. If you’re wondering which voltage is best for your laptop, just check your wall charging adapter. My G7 wall charger has an output of 19.5V so the 19V option on the Professional Power Pack is the best choice. The USB port always remains powered as long as the pack is turned on.

To check how much juice is left in the pack without turning it on, push and release the power button. Depending on the percentage of remaining power, between 1 and all 4 of the LED lights  on the bottom left of the button will light up. The pack will turn itself off after a minute of inactivity. If it is charging a device, it will not turn itself off.

  1. I’d love to win this 20,000 mAh Professional Power Pack by Roving Power. I’d use it to NEVER be out of power while commuting to and from. My Z10 will always be charged, as well as my PlayBook, and my charging bundles. I would truly be free of outlets while I’m mobile. Thanks Berryreview!

  2. This will be great for travels. Would love to charge my entire family’s smartphones on the go!!

  3. I would use the pack to power my mobile devices and Lenovo laptop when I travel long distance!

  4. I will use this to charge my Laptop!

  5. I’m sorry, just WHY do you require a.Twitter handle in order to enter? For what will they be used? Not everyone has, or wants, one you know…

    This looks like a nice device to have around as backup for my laptop. Too bad it doesn’t support the 14.6V I need.

    Kinda curious that with such a huge capacity this thing doesn’t have more than one USB port.

    • Twitter handles will be used to track those who have tweeted about this giveaway. If you are concerned about sharing your handle feel free to PM me instead.
      For laptop charging you can choose the voltage closest to what you need and it should work fine. In your case I would guess 16V would do the trick.
      Roving Power offers the Socialite power pack option that does have 2 USB ports. The Pro pack is specifically designed to handle laptops and one other device.

      • Applying 16v to a device that requires 14.6v wouldn’t be wise, electrically speaking. And likewise applying 12v is unlikely to activate the input circuitry. Voltage needs to be a near exact match, most devices will only tolerate perhaps a couple tenths variation.

  6. I would use this product when I am camping with my son and the Boy Scouts, especially during summer camp. @Cmdr_Kane

  7. @ph03n1x i would use this device to power all my electronics especially if there are power outages etc

  8. @joyhacker
    I am actually experiencing a power outtage as I write this comment so I know exactly how useful this giveaway would be for me. My mom’s phone is about to die and I am taking the chance to enter because I turned my phone on to get the some news and this is one of the first things I saw. We take for granted being able to be connected all the time and that has never been more clear to me than now. Having to ration my phones usage is difficult because I’m always online.

  9. i travel a lot and will use all these juice to power up my Z30 and ipad-air

  10. Good review. I want to win it.

  11. I’d use one of these to make sure I always have power on my BlackBerry Z30 that I use in emergency services. For instance today I’m working 0700 – 0000 hrs and this would make sure I always have the power I need to get through the day.

  12. @pike_puller I would like to be able to replace my dual lead acid battery pack that I made for camping. Darn thing is HEAVY

  13. I currently have no power in Toronto so I would love to have this right now. It would be excellent to have in case of another emergency.

    Twitter – @adavidson25

  14. Twitter handle freebb1008 I would use it to charge my laptop, z10, PlayBook.

  15. This would be great for a friend who is studying and the laptop battery never lasts for the whole day. @jaBBu2u2 would really like to give this as a present …..

  16. I will use it to power my iPhone

  17. I would use this to charge my phones and tablet. It would be quite useful for me, I work long days and when I have started not quite at full charge I have ran out before.
    @limproved

  18. I would love this Power pack to keep my Z10, Q10 and Playbook charged @freakout2k

  19. I would love to win this Power Pack. It would allow me to keep my Z10, Laptop, and BlackBerry Playbook charged. Will definitely save me time! @therealjspears

  20. If I win this, I will manly use it to charge my Z10 and my laptop.I jumped on the ultrabook side but my Aspire S3 have the shittiest battery ever!!!
    It would be a life-savior for me ;)

  21. i will use this beast to power up all my devices when i seems to always have a problem with now when am on the road which seems to be over half of the year.@frabas1

  22. My twitter is @_ALL_Good and I would love to have one of these. I currently travel from Ohio to California on a weekly basis for business and am CONSTANTLY in need of additional power for my laptop, cellphone and spare battery (a bit of a power user I am lol). I haven’t bought one of these because I new found one that could fit all my needs until now. This looks like it would be perfect!! I hope the BerryReview Santa sees fit to give me one for Christmas :)

  23. @RIMtrollhater

    I would love this power pack to power up all of my electronics while I’m on the go. I can’t keep my hands off of my Q10 or my other devices and need device like this to keep me powered up.

  24. Hoooo, the perfect companion for my ProPack for travel!!

    I would use the pack to power my Z10 mobile or Galaxy Tablet or my Lenovo laptop when I travel long distance… for Work ;)

    Shared from Twitter handle @DitoSoft

  25. This would work well with my dm4, Nexus 7 and G2. Thanks for the chance and good luck everyone!

  26. I would use the power pack to charge my Q10 or PlayBook whilst on the go. Considering that I am glued to my device, the Roving Power Pack would keep my device charged and with full battery. I do currently have a battery pack but it seems to have gone haywire, suddenly going off with near-to full charge and so so.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
    Happy Hols!

  27. 20000mAh is really huge. I use a RAVPower 14000mAh external battery charger. It’s powerful and can charge my iPhone up more than 7 times. I had a camp a few weeks ago, it saved me a lot, charged everyone’s phone and still have almost half juice left when I got home.

  28. I’ve been looking for something like this that could charge my net book and any mobile device. I would use the power pack to charge my net book when I’m low on power and not near an outlet to plug into.

    Thanks Roving Power and BerryReview for holding this contest. Good luck everyone and happy holidays! :)
