Anker MagGo Power Bank (6.6K) review: a flipping weird power bank

An intriguing design, but this clamshell power bank is more of an oddity than it is useful

Digital Camera World Verdict

The design of this power bank is its biggest differentiator from everything else on the market, but honestly, I don’t really get it. It can prop a phone up at various angles, but I didn’t find the angles that useful, and I can achieve the same with flick-out stands in other power banks. It also makes the power bank unnecessarily chunky for its mediocre power reserve – and a reserve that drained a little too fast.

Pros

  • +

    Interesting and unique design

  • +

    MagSafe connection is strong and easy to align

  • +

    Offers 15W wireless power

Cons

  • -

    Angled stand isn’t that useful

  • -

    Bigger than more powerful power banks

  • -

    Power drained quickly

It takes something bit unique to stand out in the world of power banks. Most power banks are just rectangular slabs of batteries that you either plug your phone into or attach to your device for wireless charging. So how do you innovate? Well, if you are Anker then you flip the script, quite literally, with a flip-open clamshell power bank.

This Ugreen Nexode power bank is a smaller and lighter option but packs more capacity with 10,000mAh of cells. The power bank also has a kickstand built into the back, so you can prop your phone up for viewing incoming notifications or video. Sure it only has one angle, but that has never troubled me.

The Anker MagGo 10K power bank was released alongside the 6.6K version but has a whole different design. Smaller, lighter, and with a stand, it makes a better alternative to the 6.6K if you are looking for the least bulky option. The MagGo 10K also has a little screen in to track battery percentage and remaining time, neat!
