This higher-end power bank is powerful enough to charge full-sized laptops as well as any tablet or smartphone. It's not exactly light, but it's certainly compact to be well suited for bags or backpacks.

Amazon is currently holding a sale on the Baseus USB-C power bank for $15 USD off the original launch price of $60. Unlike most other power banks, this particular model is very dense and with additional ports and features that enthusiasts might appreciate.

The first notable feature of the Baseus power bank is its large 20000 mAh capacity and 65 W Power Delivery output. Thus, the unit can be used to charge most modern laptops that support USB PD like the Dell XPS 13, XPS 15, or MacBook Pro. Cheaper power banks are usually unable to output anywhere near 65 W and so they are mostly compatible with smartphones and tablets only.

The second notable feature of the Baseus is its LED number reading which can display the charge remaining in percent. If discharging or recharging, the reading will also display the amp and voltage in real-time which can indicate how fast or slowly a device is charging. This is especially useful because it confirms if fast-charging is enabled on devices and cables that support it.

The main disadvantage of the Baseus is its relatively heavy weight. At 450 g or one pound, the power bank can be weighty on the backpack or purse. It's definitely not something you can slip into a pocket in most situations.
