The US$99.99 Quatro Wireless PowerBank (10000 ah) from Satechi is a product I was excited about trying. However, my high expectations didn’t match with reality.
It features a Qi wireless charger, built-in Apple Watch charger, USB-C PD, and USB-A port to recharge multiple devices at once (though the charing cables are sold separately). I really liked the magnetic watch charger being included on the power bank.
I wanted to use the Quatro Wireless PowerBank as my watch charger when I traveled. I tested it out once at home before I traveled and everything worked perfectly, but that was the only time.
I fully charged the PowerBank before my trip. The first night I plugged in my phone and placed my watch on the charger and turned the power bank on.The next morning, I had a dead watch and a mostly drained phone. What a disappointment. I have tried to troubleshoot it a few times, but without any luck. The power lights on the PowerBank show it is fully charged, but it will not release any of the power to my devices.
