Power. We live in a world where it's always running out. Phones, gaming handhelds, laptops... they are all addicted to the same thing. And when you're are out and about or traveling you aren't always near a plug if you start to run low - which is where the portable power bank comes in.

I've tested a few over the years and what I've often found is that - in an understandable effort to make them portable - they sacrifice the capacity. This means it'll keep you going for a while, but you's be running on empty again before you know it.

UGREEN might well have the answer in the Nexode 100W 20000mAh, a three-Port USB C, 65W rapid recharge portable charger. It's a little bigger than some but not at all hefty - and most importantly it's a recharging monster.

It boasts two USB C ports (USB C1 100W+ USB C2 30W) and one 22.5W USB A port. This combination allows users to fast charge up to three devices simultaneously with speeds of up to 100W. Notably, the USB C1 port can charge a MacBook Pro 16" to 42% in just 30 minutes, while an iPhone 15 can reach 60% battery capacity in the same time. Additionally, it supports smaller devices like AirPods, fitness trackers, and smartwatches.

Charging the power brick up again is incredibly fast. The 65W rapid recharge means you can charge to the max in just two hours - that's five times faster than your usual ordinary power banks

Coming in a dark grey colour, the Nexode has a digital LED screen that gives an accurate indication of the remaining battery level. This makes a nice change from the usual little LEDs that can leave you guessing.

The UGREEN Nexode 100W 20000mAh is available from for RRP £79.99.
