We have had another brave supplier - AllPOWERS- send us their Lithium Iron Phosphate based R600 power bank. It supports all the standard features and a few special ones - but how have they been implemented? The best way to find out is to take it apart and look! David Edwards takes viewers on a teardown journey of the ALLPOWERS R600 battery bank. He explores its features, including a wireless charging pad, USB Type-C ports, and solar cell connectivity. Initially sceptical about solar cells, David is pleasantly surprised by their efficiency. He explains the use of lithium iron phosphate batteries and how the device can function as an online standby Uninterruptible Power Supply. While praising its modular design and build quality, David cautioned about the earthing output. He concludes that the ALLPOWERS R600 is a reliable and versatile power source for various applications.

In this episode of "The Electronics Inside," host David takes apart and tears down the ALLPOWERS R600 battery bank to see how it functions. The unit comes with an information pack, warranty, and manuals. It includes a UK plug and ICC 13 power plug for charging off mains power and MC4 waterproof connectors for solar cells. Initially skeptical about the solar cells' performance, David finds that they can reach around 90 watts, providing a decent charging option.
The battery pack itself has various functionalities. It comes with a wireless charging pad for Qi standard charging up to 15 watts and a C14 inlet for mains charging. It also offers USB Type-C ports with Power Delivery, USB-A sockets, barrel jacks, and a cigarette lighter car outlet adapter. The unit has a built-in LED light and a display that shows power input and output. The ability to switch distinct groups of outlets on or off independently is a useful feature.
The battery technology used in the R600 is lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4), known for its high cycle life. David explores the various components inside the device, including the charge controller, battery management system (BMS), and the inverter for AC output. He discovers that the device can function as an online standby Uninterruptible Power Supply, where it allows power to passively transmit through during normal operation and only kicks in the inverter during a power failure scenario.
David is impressed with the device's modular design and build quality, noting the attention to detail in components; for example, the metallic shafts that make the handle more durable. However, he remains reserved about the earthing output and recommends caution when using it in the field. Overall, he finds the R600 battery bank to be a versatile and reliable power source for various applications.
