The Zendure SuperTank Pro includes four USB-C ports, which offer a good complement of input and output options. From an input side, SuperTank Pro can be charged via USB-C at 5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/3A, 20V/5A, up to 100W max.

On the output side, it can charge four devices at the same time, two through 18W ports and two through its 100W ports. The SuperTank Pro also sports an OLED display that shows the remaining battery life, the charging status of connected devices, and the charging status of the SuperTank Pro itself.

The charger features an aluminum shell that is durable and gives the device a nice solid feel. It works to protect the battery inside as well as dissipate heat. In terms of safety, Zendure states the SuperTank Pro has 9 layers of protection, helping keep you and your connected devices free from damage.

Zendure SuperTank Pro In Use

In our usage scenario, the Zendure SuperTank Pro is a good solution for on-site work as it has the power capacity to charge multiple devices simultaneously. It does this without adding a ton of heft to our travel case as well.

With its combined DC output of 100W this allows you to charge a notebook, tablet, phone, and other accessories at the same time, without having to worry about a nearby power source. With two 100W ports and two 18W ports, you could leverage this to charge multiple devices even if you only have a single port charging block in your bag.

With a battery capacity of 99Wh, this battery helps extend runtime of various operations. To give you an idea of the runtimes you can expect with the SuperTank Pro, here are some examples at different power draws levels.

  • 10W: ~9.9 hours. This would be a smaller device like an iPhone
  • 25W: ~3.96 hours. This would be charging an iPad or a notebook operating with normal usage
  • 50W: ~1.98 hours. This would be a slightly more powerful notebook operating or one charge

It’s important to note that these are approximate runtimes and will vary depending on the device and the battery charge level. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that the SuperTank Pro can charge multiple devices simultaneously, so you might have different devices connected to it with different power draw, thus it will affect the overall runtime figures.

We also did test pass-through power capabilities with the SuperTank Pro, and it did support charging and powering other devices at the same time. This would definitely help extend the runtime to some extent when powering multiple devices.

When it comes to charging the SuperTank Pro, there is one slight drawback: the package only includes a charging cable, but not a charger. This means that users will have to supply their own charger in order to fill up the SuperTank Pro. The SuperTank Pro peaks at 100W when charging, although will work with a multitude of chargers. So if you have USB-C devices already, one of those chargers will work fine, although a notebook USB-C power brick may provide the fastest speeds.

Final Thoughts

We used the SuperTank Pro for several days with a plethora of mobile devices and found its flexibility to be the biggest benefit. With most mobile devices having transitioned to USB-C for charging, this power bank is powerful enough and flexible enough to be the perfect power station travel buddy that is airline-friendly. While on-site with a vendor or at a busy trade show, it’s great to know we can top off a bag full of gear without having to find a power outlet.

At $180, it’s not inexpensive and with the big battery it naturally brings some additional stress to the backpack shoulder straps, but this is the kind of thing that if you need it, you’ll really appreciate having the SuperTank Pro in your go bag. Plus the OLED displays a nice touch that gives a great view into the power available as well as what’s being used by your devices.
