D-Power S15PD Review: The Literal Power Brick!

High capacity power banks are a great accessory to have. However, they’re basically a dime a dozen, and it can be difficult to choose one as there are just so many great and affordable options in the market. The D-Power S15PD 24,000mAh power bank sets itself apart not only by blowing out most other power banks by sheer capacity, but by speed and versatility as well.

Build Quality and Design

The worst thing about the S15PD is its sheer size and weight. It measures 142 x 74.5 x 17.5mm and weighs 542g (more than half a kilo!), making it a literal power brick! No doubt this is due to its capacity, although encasing it in a metal shell certainly didn’t help. Still, I’d rather a power bank be durable and D-Power made sure that was the case with the S15PD.

Features

As mentioned, the D-Power S15PD has a 24,000mAh capacity, which is more than double what you would typically see in most other high capacity power banks out there. Before the S15PD, I’d go on road trips with 2 or 3 10,000mAh power banks. Now, I only have to go out with one.

You won’t be wanting for ports either. It comes with 2 Type-A ports, one of which supports PD3.0 and QC3.0 fast charge standards, while the other one supports your regular 1A output. There’s also a Type-C port that can either charge another device or serve to charge the S15PD itself. And yes, you’ll be happy to know that this gargantuan power bank supports quick charging itself as well.

Finally, to top things off, the D-Power S15PD comes with an LED indicator that displays remaining capacity in percentages. This has been a common feature on D-Power’s power banks and I’m glad to see it here because of its accuracy versus other products that only show 4-bars.

So Should You Buy the D-Power S15PD?

Versus some of D-Power’s other power banks, the S15PD’s design is utilitarian at best. However, it outdoes the competition, not just by sheer capacity, but in its versatility and quick charge options as well. At Php1,999, it’s one of the best and most affordable options considering its capacity and features.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
