[Amazon.ca] AUKEY 8000mAh Wireless Charging Power Bank: 18W USB C, PD Port, QC3 - $32

For those of you looking for a wireless charging power bank that's not too bulky to EDC, then here's the product for you. There will be people who will compare Anker vs Aukey like every other Anker/Aukey thread, but as far as I can find, Anker doesn't make a wireless power bank. The last time this power bank was at this price was back in Nov 2019 on a Lightning Deal. Here's the previous thread..

Product Description:
AUKEY Wireless Charging Power Bank with 18W USB C Power Delivery Port, Portable Wireless Charger, 8000mAh USB-C and Quick Charge 3.0 Battery Pack, Compatible with iPhone XS / XR / 8, AirPods, Samsung S10 / S9, and More

Specifications:
Model: PB-Y25
Battery Capacity: 8000mAh/ 29.6Wh
Micro-USB Input: 5V 2A. (not sure why this is listed in the specs as the product image doesn't show a micro-USB port)
USB-C Input: (18W PD) 5V 2A, 9V 2A
USB-C Output: (18W PD) 5V 3A, 9V 2A, 12V 1.5A
USB Output 1: (Adaptive Charging) 5V 2.4A
USB Output 2: (Quick Charge 3.0) 5V-6V 3A, 6V-9V 2A, 9V-12V 1.5A
Wireless Output: 5W
Max Power Output: 18W
Dimensions: 147x 75x 14mm
Weight: 198g / 6.98oz

Looks like this does everything: QC, PD, Wireless, uses USB-C. The only thing that could make it more versatile is the ability to charge an Apple Watch.

Which thread?
This is $8 off so it's better.

Looks like lowest on 3c so I'm buying one to try wireless.
Thanks OP

Had one Aukey power bank and can tell the noticable build-quality difference between Anker and Aukey. I've only purchased Anker after that.

Even PrimeCables battery packs were better than the battery pack I got from Aukey.

So this thing is going to play nice with the Pixel 3?

The thread OP linked had a coupon to drop it to $32.39.

This one drops it to $31.99.

Reading is tough, huh?

I got one of these and can confirm that it can wirelessly charge a Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2, but only for a short while ~about 10% and then the watch stops charging because of overheating.
I guess it's OK if you're in a pinch.

Great portable charger. Can hold up to 2 full charges for my iphone 6s plus. Wish this was a 10000mah instead of 8000 though.

Also, the prime delivery date for this is 1 week. Not sure why its not 2 days...

Wireless and only 8000mah? That makes it 5000mah in reality.

Like I stated in the original post, Anker doesn't make a wireless battery pack (that I could find). If you're talking about a standard, plug-in battery, then you could be right. I own products from both brands and haven't had any issues, but YMMV as always.

If you're referring to this post, the person said there was a $7 coupon off the regular price of $39.99. This is a temporary $8 price drop off the regular price.

I only have an aukey one and totally love it, what makes the anker one better?


Also how much of a difference is 8000mAh vs 10000mAh? I have an older 10000mAh power bank from aukey that I love, but its missing usb 3.0 output and wireless charging, really tempted to get this...

Hit and miss sometimes you get good Aukey products, sometimes not so good. I have some Aukey usb c wires that have been great, and then some that weren't.
