Introducing PowerCore AC 22000
Here in the Community, there have been several requests for a power bank (other than the PowerHouse) that features an AC plug and can charge older MacBooks. However, there have been nearly just as many arguments that the addition of AC would result in a significantly less efficient transfer of power than USB, which is a crucial point for devices that we want to be compact and light. Today, we see the outcome of both sides of this debate.
PowerCore AC packs in an AC plug capable of outputting up to 90W and 2 USB Type-A PowerIQ 1.0 ports with a total power output of 5V/4.2A, but interestingly, no USB Type-C PD ports. It is recharged at 17.6V/3A, which allows the unit to be powered up from 0% to 100% in just 3 hours.
