The team over at BlitzWolf was nice enough to send me their latest powerbank, the BlitzWolf BW-WP1, a 10.000mAh dual usb powerbank with a wireless charging pad built-in!
Let's find out if this powerbank performs up to spec.
Kinda curious about the wireless charging portion of it...
→ Review notes
Let’s start off with performance regarding output current : all of the manufacturers’ specifications are met and well exceeded. Charging the powerbank using the Type-c port is over an hour faster than when using the micro-usb port for charging. The output capacity using the USB-A port is about 13% off of what is specified, the output capacity using the Type-C port does a little bit worse at 20% off.
Still acceptable numbers though. And then there’s the wireless charging portion : that’s about 34% off of what is specified. I can’t compare to other data yet, but I suspect there are some/a lot of losses going on with/in wireless charging. Passthrough charging is not advised, but possible. This powerbank can not be used as a sort of UPS, whenever power is (dis)connected the powerbank will reset, interrupting its output.
A big thank you to Blitzwolf for sending me this powerbank!
Thanks for the continued support, guys!

→ Conclusion
This BlitzWolf BW-WP1 performs well in all of my tests.

I like the addition of wireless charging capability, but it has to be noted that placement of your device is very important for getting the maximum current this powerbank can offer wirelessly. If you need the wireless charging functionality, I ‘d definitely recommend taking a look at this BlitzWolf BW-WP1.

Truely Wireless bluetooth earphones : QCY-T1 Pro en

A couple of months ago I received one of the last packages courtesy of BangGood; it contained QCY's latest True Wireless bluetooth earphones : a pair of brand spanking new T1 Pro's. After having tested their predecessors to these (and having used them for quite some time) I was very curious about them, so I did the usual unboxing thing and also ran a charging test with them and a runtime test in the video below :

→ Conclusion
I love that they are truly wireless and I like the magnetic system that is used to keep the earphones in the charging case while charging. This is a big improvement over the previous ones which had a tendency to pop out of their charging holes and thus not make contact with the charging pogo pins, leaving you either with an uncharged earbud, or randomly connecting to your phone whenever it lost contact with the charging pins and thus turned on. Not with these, I'm happy to report. Another big improvement is the ease of pairing them with your phone and to each other. That could be a little troublesome with the previous model. About the sound of them I 'm quite happy, they're clear and quite loud if needed and don't show any distortion at volume. The fit in my ears is also excellent, thanks to the extra 'earhook'. One little niggle I have with them is that the entire top is actually a button and sometimes it's a little too sensitive to the touch, pausing playback.

These QCY-T1 Pro's are available for purchase at BangGood.

A little while ago I got to emailing with the folks at Passmark Software about this particular product.
They were very awesome and sent me a review unit free of charge, as long a I'd pay for any duties incurred. It was a generous offer that I gladly accepted, it's a pricey bit of kit!
A couple of weeks later I made this video :
→ Conclusion
This is a very very nice piece of kit if you need to do some heavy duty USB PD testing; it can handle up to 100W of power, so you can test some quite powerful devices safely. I like the ability to control it from a computer as well as use it standalone. It's a welcome addition to my arsenal of testing gear!
A big thank you to Passmark Software for sending me their USB PD tester for the making of this video.
Thanks for the support!

Taking a look at a ZMI Powerplug Turbo 45W USB Type-C PD Wall Charger (AD03Z) sent to me by ZMI USA for this video. They like what I'm doing on the channel and contacted me with an offer to send me something to review...
→ Conclusion
This ZMI Powerplug Turbo 45W USB Type-C PD Wall Charger achieves and exceeds the specifications on the box. They are exceeded by a bit, I have to say, with impressive numbers! Another plus is the absence of power use in standby. It’s a nice PD charger that delivers all of the power it promises in the specs and more! I hope this will be available soon with an EU plug instead of a US one.
