I was initially going to return this battery pack after thinking the USB-C port was power input only, but I discovered that the USB-C port CAN output power, allowing you to charge using all 3 ports!

The trick is to power on the charger (the LED lights should stay on) BEFORE plugging in your USB-C device. If you just plug a device to the USB-C port without first powering on the charger, then your device will end up charging the battery pack. By powering on the battery pack first, power will flow from the charger to your device.

To charge another device using the battery pack's USB-C port:
1) Remove any devices plugged into charger's USB-C port
2) Power ON charger (LEDs on)
3) Plug device into charger's USB-C port

To charge the battery in the charger:
1) Remove any devices plugged into charger's USB-C port
2) Power OFF charger (LEDs off)
3) Plug device into charger's USB-C port

Now, onto the actual review:

Having one of Anker's older chargers, it sucked being limited to 2 output ports; I'd have to either juggle between my devices using the 2 ports, or to sit down near an outlet so I can charge more than 2 things at once. Being able to charge through the USB-C port now lets me charge up to 3 devices at once on a single battery pack! Even better, since the MacBook has a USB-C port as well, I can just use my MacBook's USB-C to USB-C cable to charge in either direction! Anker does provide a USB-A to USB-C cable for those that don’t have a USB-C device to charge the battery pack.

I do hope Anker will include the USB-C port in their smaller capacity battery packs as well, as this one is a little too long for my taste (the old 13000 mAh Astro E4 was ideal for me in terms of size).

Cheap USB Type-C adapter cables have gotten some negative press recently with Benson Leung's compliance campaign and people damaging USB ports trying to charge their new phones from their laptops. The problem isn't that the market is flooded with defective cables, the problem is it is flooded with cheater cables. These cheater cables are being mass-produced for one purpose, and that is to boost MacBook charging speed. Which would be great, except that every one of them can cause permanent damage to non-Type-C USB ports on your laptop that will be very expensive to repair. It is impossible to tell whether a cable is compliant or not just by looking at it.

Anker is making and selling cheater cables. Buyer beware.

I took the adapter cable that comes with this battery to the lab and hooked it up to the multimeter. As you can see, the resistor connected to the CC pins is 10 Kohms. That tells USB Type-C devices that they can draw the allowed 3 A from the host. But this is an adapter cable for plugging into a Type-A host. So if the USB port on the host cannot handle a 3 amp load, poof goes your controller chip. Or it browns out and damages the USB port on the device. Or maybe you'll get lucky.

If you own this kit, I urge you to discard the included adapter cable and buy a replacement from Benson's list.

Anker didn't have to do this. If they had shipped a compliant adapter plus a Type-C to Type-C cable, they could have advertised MacBook charging without putting your electronics at risk. But instead they cut some corners and put their brand at risk to save money. And that is why, even though the battery itself is fantastic, I am giving the kit a two-star review.

The battery itself feels well built, but I haven't had a need yet to really use it. I'll see how it well it works in the next couple of weeks. One issue I noticed is that the included USB a to c cable included does not appear to be built to proper spec. I tested using an app called CheckR on my 5x. I'll probably toss it and use my in spec cables and the c port but felt it would be a good thing for people to know.

** Update **
After contacting Anker, they provided me with a compliant USB-A to USB-C that can be used for input or output at regular (not rapid) speeds. They also provided a USB-C to USB-C cable for rapid charging. At this point, my only complaint is that the battery has to be "turned on" before charging out the USB-C port, not a big deal, but it's one more step. It would also make more sense to have dual USB-C ports and a single USB-A.

** Original Review **
The included USB-A to USB-C is not compliant.

For spec compliant rapid charging, you must have USB-C to USB-C, which is not included.
So, fortunately, you can get your own USB-C compliant cable and use it with the USB-C port and get rapid charging, but this cable isn't included and it should be. The other related issue I saw is that the battery pack doesn't automatically turn on when you plug in a USB-C, but it does when you plug into the USB-A. This is pretty silly and I can see a case where my phone charges up, the pack turns off and then my phone begins to discharge.

As long as you throw away the included USB-A to USB-C cable, you're compliant.

You could also choose to use the included USB-A to USB-C cable, but as a matter of principle and compliance to the standard this really grinds on me; really poor design choice.

This really should've had two USB-C output ports and only 1 USB-A output port.
