After many years of releasing industry-leading PC storage and 3C peripheral products, Silicon Power (SP) has launched its first Quick Charge power bank, the QP60, which supports both PD (Power Delivery) & QC3.0 fast charging technical specifications. For those people who have the latest iPhone X or a later version from 2019 and forward, which support the fast charge function, the QP60 will be an advanced power bank choice for them. Moreover, it has a large capacity, small size, thin profile, and stylish casing, making it a must-have back-up power source for daily mobile device users.
The mobile power bank has become a standard accessory when people leave their houses for work, travel, or leisure. Regardless of a smartphone’s battery capacity size, it’s still difficult to sustain a full day’s consumption when people use their smartphone to browse the internet, take photos, and play games all the time.
Nowadays, the mobile power bank is a welcome (and nearly necessary) addition to one’s bag. However, most traditional mobile power banks only provide a 5V/2A charging output. For relatively new models of smartphones that support PD or QC3.0, it’s time to replace the accompanying power bank with one that can take advantage of this extra boost. Purchasing a power bank that supports the Quick Charge function will save a lot of time.
The QP60 meets both PD and QC3.0 (18W) quick charge standards. It also includes dual USB outputs to charge 2 devices at the same time, which makes it a powerful and advanced back-up power source for those who often go out for work. It’s especially useful for business people who frequently travel for work and need an extra battery to charge their new MacBookAir, MacBookPro or UltraBook laptops which use SSD as their main storage. In addition, this 18W fast-charge mobile power bank will greatly increase productivity for business people who work for hours outside, and allow them to go out for meetings or stay in a coffee shop all day without worrying that their laptop will run out of power. It is quite convenient.
In terms of specifications, the QP60 supports 5V/1A, 5V~6V/3A, and 6V~12V/18W fast charging output modes. The dual USB outputs passed EU CE certification and Taiwan BSMI safety regulation certification, Japanese electrical safety certification, Russian certification, Qualcomm QC 3.0 certification, and more. For safety concerns, the QP60 has 12 built-in protection designs, such as Input High-Voltage Protection, Output High-Voltage Protection, Input Current Protection, Automatic Current Protection, Input Short-Circuit Protection, Reverse Charge Protection, Device Overcharge Protection, Input Current Regulation, Static Resistance, and Fireproof Guard.
Inside the box, you will find one QP60 mobile power bank, a user’s manual, and a short USB Type-A to Type-C fast charging cable.
With the QP60’s smart charging LED lights, users can identify the fast charging or standard charging mode via the light effect. The metal casing houses a durable 10,000mAh Li-ion polymer battery cell, which reduces power consumption up to 45%. Smartphone batteries can be charged up to 70% in just 30 minutes. Equipped with 2 USB Type-A outputs, the QP60 can charge 2 devices at the same time. These Quick Charge 3.0 outputs can provide up to 18W of power and a maximum of 3A, providing a charging speed that is 27% faster than QC 2.0.
When people hang out with friends all day, many of them will have low batteries on their phones by the evening. If you have the QP60 in your bag, you can refuel them quickly with the fast charging function on 2 mobile phones at the same time. A fully charged 10,000mAh QP60 can provide 3.5 times of extra smartphone power. Sharing the battery power with friends is not only doable but also encouraged.
The biggest advantage of the QP60 is its weight; it’s slim and light! The dimensions are 137.0mm x 67.0mm x 13.7mm, which is 13.7cm length and 6.7cm width. The QP60 also has an ergonomic design, comfortable to hold and use. The body is a thin height of only 1.37cm and weighs just 225 grams, which is lighter and thinner than SP’s previous fast-charging power bank, the Cell C10QC from 2019. For safety issues, the QP60 can automatically monitor temperature, control input, and output voltage through smartBOOST technology, and it has 12 comprehensive protection mechanisms. It has also passed a safety test for electromagnetic interference (EMI) level and charging efficiency. Furthermore, it is certified by the world's five major international testing institutions and meets the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards.
The QP60 has two USB Type-A outputs and one Type-C output. The micro-USB port provides input power with AC charging. The 2 orange ports both support the fast charging function. Although the voltage and current output by the two connectors are different, they can both support simultaneous output. The Type-C output supports PD (two-way) fast charging and the USB Type-A outputs provide QC3.0 fast charging. The charging power is up to 18W, which is 2.5 times faster than the 5W standard charger. The QP60 intelligently detects the battery power requirement from connected devices.
There are four LED lights on the front side of the QP60 casing. These identify the current power status by showing how much power is left. By tapping the LED light button, you can see the power usage status instantly. All four lights indicate full power, three lights indicate 75% power, two lights indicate 50% power, and one light indicates 25% power or less. It is quite intuitive for daily usage. This button can also be used as a charging wake-up button for iPhone, iPad and other Apple devices.
Can I charge 3 devices at the same time? Yes, you can. The QP60’s three USB output ports (Type-A*2 & Type-C) can charge three mobile devices at the same time without any problem. It’s convenient saves a lot of time.
*Depends on whether your device supports the fast charging function.
When the orange USB output connector is charging, it can smoothly adjust the power output on 5V/1A, 5V~6V/3A, or 6V~12V/18W fast charging. For some small devices, such as Bluetooth earbuds or smart/Apple watches, it will also automatically detect the power output with a small current, which provides even more protection for your small-capacity-battery devices.
Who needs the QP60 quick charging power bank? The first priority are users who already have PD/QC 3.0 devices, which includes the latest smartphones, iPhone X, iPhone 11, and iPad Pro. The QP60 is not just good charging quickly, but also for carrying around due to its slim size and light weight.
