    Do I need $5 or a powerbank more?

  • Thanks OP!

  • Some of these are actually even cheaper than Temu/Aliexpress, pretty impressed to be honest.

    The Clock Wireless Charger actually looks decent too.

  • Possibly price error?

    • They are priced at $5 on the shelves too

      • Thanks I order some, will just return it when I pick it up if I change my mind

  • The $69 one is Input Rated: AC 100-240V~50/60Hz 0.3A 🤮
    The $49 one is Input Rated: AC 100-240V~50/60Hz 5V 3A, 9V 2A

    • +1

      Does that mean very very slow charging?

    • So the white one is better but black one is pricier?

    • Black’s input is AC so approx 6A at 12V DC max if unrestrained. This is most likely 5V 2-3A though.

      White’s input is in DC as you have to provide the charger yourself.

      Pretty sure you got the stats wrong. You've listed the stats for OUTPUT, not INPUT. Just looking at the white one, the stats are:

      Type-C INPUT: 5V=3A, 2A
      Type-C OUTPUT: 5V=3A, 2.23A, 12V=1.67A
      USB-A OUTPUT: 5V=3A, 9V 2.23A, 12V=1.67A, 10V=2.25A

      And since you mentioned INPUT, I should mention that it doesn't really matter for a battery bank. Input is only for charging the power bank. When you're charging a power bank, it most likely means you have access to a power outlet. At that point, you wouldn't be charging your devices using the power bank, you should be charging via the power outlet using a GaN charger with much better charging speeds. That's unless you buy a high-end power bank that does pass-through charging while it's getting charged.

      A power bank is for on-the-go charging of your devices, where normally you don't have access to a power outlet to plug in a normal charger. In that case, OUTPUT is what matters, as you want to charge your devices quickly while on the go.

      The higher the ampere, the fastest the charging rate. The white charger can output at 15W or 18W depending on the setup, which is pretty MEH but it'll be fine for phones that can't go more than 22W maximum input. These power banks would probably suit budget to mid-range phones that came out years ago.

      If you're looking for a charger that does like 60W+, then you'd need to pay more money. I mean, these are budget brands from Kmart, so people should be pretty realistic with their expectations. You get what you pay for.

      And some people tend to forget that you need a charging cable that's capable of doing fast charging. For anyone who wants to do 100W fast charging, you'd need a phone that supports that, as well as a 100W capable charging cable, and a good GaN charger that does 100W at least with options for multiple ports (recommend getting one that's 245W so it can do 100W on 2 ports concurrently and 45W for the other one), then a battery bank that does 100W as well for your emergency on the go charging. Either way, all these combined add up to more than $$$ and so if you're looking at spending $49 or $69 on this battery bank thinking you're gonna get fast charging, then you're mistaken.

        iirc for iphones on a non-certified wireless charger you can't exceed 7.5w anyway, and as far as I can tell, none of these are going to be apple certified.

        • Never heard of that restriction before and can't say I've seen this issue on Android phones using a non-certified wireless charger.

          How would it even detect that it's a non-certified wireless charger?

          Wireless charging is more of a gimmick anyway. It's useful if you have a bunch of devices (e.g. watch or whatever) that you can just put on a wireless charging pad to charge them all at once and it makes it convenient from having to plug in a cable. But it's not that much effort to plug in a cable. Most of the time, you just want the phone charged up quick, in which case wired charging is almost always better and faster. And if you manage your phone properly, you wouldn't even need to charge that often anyway. My phone has drained only 1% battery and is sitting at 99% and it's been on standby for the past 2 days and 23 hours.

          The other issue is that if you use a case, it'd most likely block wireless charging anyway. I have a phone case that isn't too rugged but does the job and it has a kickstand at the back with a ring that I can flip out and rotate and hold it for extra stability (e.g. while I'm parasailing or whatever) and that case blocks wireless charging. I've tried several cases and it's the same. I have 2 wireless chargers, one that does like 66W or something and the other one at 100W. Both very good Xiaomi chargers and I paid like $200 or something for both. Used them like 3 times and now they're in my drawer collecting dust.

          And is there any expectation or surprise here that Kmart chargers aren't Apple certified? They're budget for a reason.

          • @NovaAlpha:

            How would it even detect that it's a non-certified wireless charger?

            Same way anything works, authentication. Wireless charging isn't just "send power, receive power", there's other talking going on - while I don't know what method they specifically use the easiest option for them would be to use bluetooth in the same way that AirTags do to detect whether the charger contains the correct authentication, but there's also the NFC reader that could be utilised for inductive chargers as well.

            Wireless charging is more of a gimmick anyway. It's useful if you have a bunch of devices (e.g. watch or whatever) that you can just put on a wireless charging pad to charge them all at once and it makes it convenient from having to plug in a cable. But it's not that much effort to plug in a cable.

            Okay cool, so it's not for you. The point of wireless charging is more that you don't need to fiddle with cables. e.g. stick it on the pad on your desk and grab it as you go instead of having to even remember to plug it in to begin with, it's just ready.

            The other issue is that if you use a case, it'd most likely block wireless charging anyway.

            Entirely depends on your charger and case. Thinner case or more powerful charger will work around that, I never had issues with the case on my iPhone SE but my iPhone 12 Mini case does have issues because the lift of the camera + case bring it just a little bit too far off the pad.

            Not really sure what your point is here trying to write off wireless charging as some gimmick by nit picking personal grievances anyway lol

            And is there any expectation or surprise here that Kmart chargers aren't Apple certified? They're budget for a reason.

            No. That's literally why I've pointed it out so people are aware they're unlikely to get the advertised speeds. This wasn't a complaint, but seems like you'll make plenty of those for everyone lol

            • @chunder: You shouldn't need to turn on NFC or bluetooth just to be "authenticated" to use a certified charger.

              I get the point of a wireless charger. But on a battery bank, it IS a gimmick. What, so you're going to put the battery bank down on a flat surface and charge wirelessly while you're not moving around or using your phone? Most of the time when you have a battery bank is when you are travelling and moving around a lot. You keep the battery bank in a compartment in your bag and you use the cable that is built into the shoulder straps and charge your phone on the go. It's very easy and convenient and quick to do. But having to take out the battery bank just to charge wirelessly? Lol.

              Having a organized desk with proper cable mangement means you can literally put your phone on a phone stand and it will get connected and charged easily without messing around with cable.

              The majority of sold phones do not have wireless charging either. I'm talking about most low to mid-range Android phones that make up most of the market. If it was a necessity, it would have been included as a standard by all manufacturers. Again, it is literally a gimmick for the most part.

              And do people really need to point out that $5 budget battery banks from a company solely based on selling budget items wouldn't be Apple certified? Water is wet btw.

              • @NovaAlpha: Actually the battery pack wireless charger is very useful when you are in a damp environment and your phone won't let you charge via the cord ;)

                • @LupinS: Genuinely curious about what type of environment that would be. Like in a glow-worm cave?

              • @NovaAlpha: Wireless on a battery bank is great for when you charging multiple things and forgot extra cords, or if theres not enough outputs for the amount of devices you are charging.

                • @quote: The only wireless charging tech I've seen that's actually somewhat impressive is a device from some company (don't remember) that was advertised years ago. It charges your device in open air, literally wirelessly without contact. You don't need to put it on pad or anything, you just need to be in the vicinity and it'll charge your device. When wireless charging gets mature and stable to that point, I'll be fully onboard. Unfortunately, that tech is still pretty immature at this point. Apple was gonna drop their wireless charger years ago and it never came out.

                  I've already tried most of the high-end chargers that you can buy (I'm talking about 100W+ fast charging) and there's not enough room to charge a phone and several other devices at the same time. It's not like you can place the device any orientation on the surface and expect it to charge. You have to place it literally at the right spot, because the Qi pad built into the device is in a specific location. It's the same reason why you can't charge your device with the screen facing down on the pad.

                  Most wireless chargers that can charge multiple devices only do like 22W~30W and that's extremely slow in 2024. 100W charging should be the standard these days. And those chargers are dedicated wireless charging pads or stands.

                  If you're talking about wireless charging on a battery bank, you need to be realistic. Battery banks aren't big, they have a small surface area. They also don't output at a high wattage for wireless charging. Charging "multiple" devices on a cheap battery bank with low output is a joke. If the device in question isn't budget and is actually high-end, then that'll be a completely different discussion.

                  I should add that wired charging is still much more convenient in general than wireless charging. My Logitech MX Master 3s just needs to be charged for like 5 mins and it'll last for hours, same goes for my WH-1000XM5 or Bose QuietComfort, quick charge lasts me ages. My smartwatch takes like 10 mins to charge, phone takes 5 mins to charge to 80% and it lasts ages due to how heavily optimized it is. My new Nuphy Air75 v2 lasts like 240 hours on battery and I can simply plug it in to keep going without interference. I own like 5 battery banks and a new one that I just bought (for fun) does 200W fast charging and I barely use them. And I haven't touched my wireless chargers (high-end ones) for more than 1.5 years at this point. The thing is, if you have a crappy budget device that drains battery really quickly, then charging is only a concern then. I just need to charge my phone for 5 mins and I'm ready to go. Ain't nobody got time to let their phone sit charging wirelessly for 1+ hour. Time is valuable the more you are worth.

                  Apart from high-end phones that support high input wireless charging, most devices don't charge that fast wirelessly. By the time I'm done with charging via wired, you'd still be charging wirelessly.

                      It's incredible that some people actually believe a $5 wireless battery bank can perform miracles.

  • Good finds. I'm still stuck on old wall plugs though as new phones don't come with wall chargers, so still won't actually get speeds faster than 5W anyway!

  • Hmm…it's trying to charge me $6 shipping on my $5 powerbank

      Kmart is notorious for having no idea what their stock levels are. They probably just use a random number generator.

      • Accurate!

      • Yes out of 10 orders, as much as 6 will get refunded from personal experience. Not as bad as EB Games, but they are up there.

    • They are clearing a crapload of stuff. It appears on the floor and popular stuff goes quick, and their system doesn't keep up. I brought out their stock of large cutting boards for $4 each yesterday for instance.

      They've been going on about RDIF price tagging everything for their new robots so it will be logged when you walk out the door - so it might improve eventually, and hopefully get rid of the completely pointless door docket scan (where they don't even look at what you purchased).

      • With Kmart the powerbanks are not located in the electronics section, instead they're located at the checkout. Chances are they don't get seen by shoppers, and so they hardly sell any.

        One morning I saw a staff member yellow stickering some clearance stuff and placing them onto shelf. Then a different staff member who finished her shift grabs most of the good stuff and purchases them at checkout, lol

    Everything sold out instore for both botany and Sylvia Park. According to staff, cleared out by people with insomnia who bought them all at 1am. Better luck for people in Albany

    • Shopping at Kmart late hours is the only way I can cope with going there. I get too frustrated with other shoppers….

    • I placed order at 10PM for picking up at Botany store, but my order was cancelled early this morning due to out of stock.

      no honour amongst cheapies eh

  • About 12 of the alarm clock wireless chargers on the shelf at Kmart Papanui at 11.30am( $5)

  • managed to click and collect 2 of the black powerbank with the built in usb c cables. shouldve ordered more, wouldve been such great gifts.

    also great for travel, will be testing this out for my holiday in end of year

    thanks OP!

  • Have the 10000mah wireless charging powerbanks already sold out? I can't seem to find them.
