Everything USB Power related.
Let's find out if this powerbank performs up to spec.
Kinda curious about the wireless charging portion of it...
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!
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.

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 :
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!

This Niko 420-00510 Smart USB Charger performs nicely.
Not too much overhead on the specs, but total output is available on a single port, which I like.
Another nice feature is the power usage in standby, which is none, kind of important with a product connected to mains power 24/7. It does what it promises on the box, so I can't complain.

I had the same problem with this as with some of the others : there is a manual, but it's translated very poorly so I had to try and figure it out on my own. That took quite a long time
But let's see what this thing can do in the video below :
I like this UPM, but the lack of a decent manual really bothers me. Some of the functions aren't very clear to me, and are not as self-explanatory as with other UPM's that I have tested in the past.
The lack of support from the manufacturer is another thing that bothers me.
I am sure I have missed some things in this video.
You can also connect this UPM to a Windows PC, unfortunately, my testing nettop (& only wintel box)
can't run the app. I really need to upgrade to something that can run a recent version of Windows.
It's clearly a nice piece of equipment, but it is let down somewhat by what is stated above.
