Testing & Results

Testing Methodology

Testing of external battery packs is not something we do often at Benchmark Reviews, and without dedicated test equipment like you would find in an electrical engineering lab, it was clear to me that our test protocol is going to be more of a functional evaluation than a series of performance measurements. Here’s a list of the things I can currently test:

  • Does it accept and hold a full charge
  • Does it accept a charge at the specified rate
  • How long does it hold a charge
  • Does it charge other devices
  • Does it charge other devices at the specified rate
  • Does it deliver the specified amount of energy to other devices
  • Does it function the way the User Manual specifies
  • Does it exhibit behaviors that are undocumented
  • Does it exhibit undesirable behaviors during normal operation

Results

  • The PV100 accepts and holds a full charge
  • The PV100 accepts a charge at the specified rate – 1A
  • The PV100 holds a charge for several weeks
  • The PV100 charged several different devices
  • The PV100 charged other devices at a rate allowed by each individual device
  • The PV100 delivered the specified amount of energy to other devices
  • The PV100 functioned the way the User Manual specified
  • The PV100 did exhibit one behaviors that is not undocumented
    • In-line charging of the battery pack + connected device from one USB port
  • The PV100 did not exhibit undesirable behaviors during normal operation

I don’t know any other way to demonstrate that the ADATA PV100 Power Bank performed exactly as I expected it to. I’ve had good success with my other external power sources, and experienced no problems with any of them, so I had high expectations coming into this review.
