CES 2017: Omnicharge Powerbanks with 3 Prong Sockets

Looking for a portable battery pack that can power more than just the standard smart phone or tablet? Omnicharge and its three-prong 120V AC / 150 HVDC output may have the solution for you. As long as it doesn’t exceed the maximum wattage of the port, Omnicharge will offer you greater powering possibilities. Think about charging laptops, monitors, drones, or any other sort of power tool that you take on the go. However, Omnicharge is not just a UPC (uninterrupted power supply) that fits in your pocket. It offers you much more. Let’s check out the two Omnicharge products we saw at Showstoppers during CES 2017.

At the surface, Omnicharge dazzles you with its two rapid charging USB ports as well as its eye-catching three-prong 120V AC / 150 HVDC outlet. However, Omnicharge is also equipped with an LCD screen for providing real-time charging, temperature and power stats. Omnicharge is a smart power bank that detects the device that you plug into it and adjusts its outbound power to ensure optimal charging. It not only makes charging simple but also safe. It uses various sensors and 10 Layer Power Protection to ensure that not only your devices are safe but also to protect the lifespan of Omnicharge itself.

Omnicharge uses flow-through charging that both charges Omnicharge as well as power any device that is plugged into it while its charging. That means powering three devices simultaneously, all while Omnicharge itself is charging. (Did I mention that it has a three-prong outlet?) That’s a lot of efficiency for the road warrior. On top that, Omnicharge protects both your devices and itself from temperature issues, short circuits, overcharging, charging overflow and other voltage issues that threaten the lifespan of Omnicharge.

There are two Omnicharge models: the Omni 13 and the Omni 20

Omni 13

Output: 120V, 60Hz, modified sine wave
(230V, 50Hz, modified sine wave for European Version)
HVDC Output: 150V (300V for European Version)
Continuous Output Power: 65W
Peak Output Power: 70W (3s)
Maximum Output Surge Power: 100W (0.1s)
USB Output Port1 and Port2: 5V / 4.8A (total)
5.5 x 2.1mm Barrel Port
4.5V – 36V, up to 2A (1W – 34W)
Battery: 18650 Li-ion battery 13600mAh at 3.6V
Weight 0.83 lb (376g)
Dimensions 5.2×3.3×0.9 inches (13.1×8.4×2.2 cm)

The little brother of the Omnicharge’s is nothing to sniff at with its 13600mAh battery and its 65W of power output. You get Omnicharge’s default suite of safety functions, an LCD display and flow-through charging. The Omni 13 on paper is slated to be a very handy travel companion that easily challenges, if not trumps, every other power bank of equal capacity. There’s a very large slew of devices that be powered with a 65W output that have heavier requirements than just your cell phone or tablet. Just take a look at the below shot of the Omni 13 charging a DSLR battery, to give you an idea. The Omni 13 goes for a very modest $129.

Omni 20

Output: 120V, 60Hz, modified sine wave
(230V, 50Hz, modified sine wave for European Version)
HVDC Output: 150V (300V for European Version)
Continuous Output Power: 100W
Peak Output Power: 105W(1s)
Maximum Output Surge Power: 150W (0.1s)
USB Output Port1: 5V / 3A
Port2: Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0; 5V/3A == 9V/2A == 12V/1.5A
Backwards compatible with QC2.0/1.0
5.5 x 2.1mm Barrel Port
4.5V – 36V, up to 3A (2W – 45W)
Also with Output option: Adjustable 1V – 24V with 0.1V Accuracy, up to 3.5A (70W max)
Battery: 18650 Li-ion battery 20400mAh at 3.6V
Weight 1.4 lb (630 g)
Dimensions 5.0×4.8×1.1 inches (12.7×12.2×2.7 cm)

 The heavy hitter of the two Omnicharge models offers more than just more brute force. Sure, a 20400mAh battery with 100W of continuous output power is enough to give you pause alone. However, this Omnicharge flagship opens up even more powering options to you. The Omni 20 gives you Qi Wireless charging, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 for one of its two USB ports, and a universal barrel port that can provide DC Output as well for more direct charging for your laptops. The Omni 20 goes for a very respectable $199.

We were very impressed with what we saw from Omnicharge at CES 2017. Each of their products is feature-packed, powerful and very compact for what you are getting out of them. Definitely keep tabs on or check out Omnicharge for yourself at https://www.omnicharge.co.
