With a 26,800mAh battery capacity, this RAVPower portal charger uses iSmart 2.0 technology to automatically detect and adjust the charging current to obtain the fastest charge. You can recharge the battery through the Type-C port in just four to five hours compared to 14 hours for similar products.
