This battery pack does it all. Seriously, just about everything.
Omnicharge doesn’t make your ordinary battery backup chargers. They may only be small squares, but they can handle the lion’s share of your charging needs — even your laptop. We tested out the Omni 20, the 20,400 mAh 100W model that has an AC/DC port and two USB ports, and we were seriously impressed.
Unboxing the Omni 20
The overall presentation of the Omni 20 is sleek and classy. It comes in a black box where each item is carefully placed in its own cubby, an easy organization system for the many cords and adaptors included. When you first pick up the Omni 20, you notice how substantial it is despite its comparatively small size to other laptop charging battery packs. It is about twice the size and bulk of an Apple TV box, to give you an idea of how it feels in your hand.
Getting Started Charging
With most battery packs, you only need to make sure it’s charged and plug your power-hungry devices in. The Omni 20 has a bit more of a learning curve. It has an OLED screen that you navigate to pick the right settings for your device. Is this annoying? It can be when you are first learning, but that is the trade-off for having an incredibly versatile charging device.
To charge using the AC/DC feature, you are going to want to do some research on what voltage the device you want to charge is. For example, my MacBook requires 14.5V to charge. So after a quick Google on that, I launched the menu and went into the menu and selected the correct voltage. Then the Omni 20 started charging my MacBook using the MagSafe2 connector included in the box. However, my MacBook cord also worked plugged in. The Omni 20 will automatically cease charging if the output levels don’t match your device’s needs, so you don’t have to be too shy while starting out using it.
