I am an early backer of this product on Indiegogo and the Omni 20 has in every way lived up to if not exceeded my hopes and expectations!!
What can this thing charge and power? This is probably one of the foremost questions we all had or have when looking at this device for the first time and as such I will answer it as the first part of my lengthy review. The Omni 20 can charge and/or power: Laptops, smartphones, dumbphones, wireless headphones, wireless headsets, portable speakers, televisions, VCR players, DVD players, Blu-ray players, Roombas, drones, your cat*, your hamster*, tablets, lamps, bathroom appliances requiring less than 100W like straighteners and electric toothbrushes (not likely any hair dryers due to their high wattage requirements), mp3 players, small kitchen appliances, and much much much much much much much much much much much much much much more via it's USB ports, AC outlet, DC Output, and Qi Wireless capabilities! In the comments, I will include a YouTube link for my full 20 minute review of the Omni 20 for those of you who actually want to see every feature in action instead of or in addition to a bunch of writing!
I am happy to say that this is the coolest piece of technology I have ever owned. This is a pretty bold statement on the part of someone who has owned and tested 12 laptops in the past year and who enjoys a wide array of hobbies entailing technological products, but it is true. I have owned several other power banks including the equal in capacity but $270.00 cheaper Easy Acc Monster 20000mAh power bank and a couple of Anker power banks, but those and every other battery bank on Amazon right now pale in comparison in most aspects to the features and utility that the Omni 20 boasts (except for USB-C capability, only for now, read below in my June 5th entry for more detail on that)!
It has two USB ports, one with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology and the other being a 5V/3A. It also boasts Qi wireless charging, DC Output via its barrel socket up to 24V's (which is more than adequate for most ultrabooks and laptops including all Apple MacBook and Microsoft Surface products). And, for the grand finale: The Omni 20 is the first power bank this small and with this much safety built in to have 120AC/150HVDC A and B Socket Type AC outlet that supports 100W continuous output!!!!
This AC wall outlet feature is what made me decide to purchase it. Having a AC wall outlet with you on the go everywhere you visit is way more useful than any of us could have imagined before having such a device available. The first example I will give of its utility is telling you about the laptops I have used it with. I have used this AC outlet to charge my old 2015 Macbook Air 13", mu current 2015 Macbook Pro 13", and even charge my 2017 Alienware 17 R4 gaming laptop--- sort of--- Allow me to explain but feel free to skip the next couple of paragraphs for more non-gaming laptop Omni 20 info:
Although the Alienware 17 R4 with 1070 graphics card is powered by a 240 watt AC adapter, it does not require 240 watts to be charged or to run continuously. When gaming or doing other high intensity computing activities, this laptop's power requirement will shoot above 100W sustained and thus overpower the 100W continuous max limit of the Omni 20. However, when it is fully charged, I have been able to do basic productivity and web browsing activities as it is only trickle charging at around 50W give or take from the Omnicharge to sustain its 100% battery. When the battery is drained and it actually needs to be charged, it can be charged by the Omnicharge if the laptop is asleep or turned off as it will then require under 100 watts to charge. In the video, I show the 90W of continuous power it was using requires its drained battery was being charged, but at the time of filming I had not figured out that you can actually run the laptop with the Omni 20 hooked up for basic every day multitasking when the laptops battery is at 100% already! I have made a video showing all of the ins and outs of charing and powering high-powered laptops on my YouTube channel I mentioned above, so that may be worth a watch if this topic is one of interest for you. To sum up the points above:
High-Powered Laptops/Gaming Laptops:
1. The Omni 20 can charge an emptied gaming laptop battery while the device is asleep or shutdown.
2. The Omni 20 can sustain the gaming laptop if it is already charged to 100% for basic everyday usage when you plug it into the Omnicharge.
3. You cannot use the Omni 20 to charge the laptop while gaming or doing high intensity activities, the wattage demand becomes too high for the Omni 20 to sustain and its overpowered protection feature will be activated.
As for other AC powered devices, in the first video I made I showed hooking up a 32" television, 95W Hair Straightener, AC powered USB Hub, and even a power strip with multiple devices attached, all without the Omni 20 even breaking a sweat!
The Omni 20 has a fan built in that turns on when the device exceeds a certain temperature and this is something I personally appreciate as I come from a world of high temperature devices with my laptop gaming. The fan can be turned off, however, with the Omnicharge's built in Silent Mode that is selectable in the menu. I would not recommend doing this for an extended period of time as the fans are designed to turn on and operate at certain temps for a reason, but this feature will be handy for those of you who may need to utilize this in a quiet setting like a conference or a lecture as the fan does get a bit loud and whiny when the Omni 20 is working hard. The fan isn't loud enough to penetrate the sustained noise in a coffeeshop, but in a quiet lecture hall or meeting the noise of the fan may cut through.
As this is a power bank, you of course have to charge the device itself. What makes this thing so awesome, is that you can charge it via its included barrel plug AC wall adapter, included barrel plug USB cable, via a laptop charger using the included adapters. As the pictures on Amazon show, you get every kind of adapter in the box you will need (except for USB-C until Omnicharge comes out with a module or adapters). It charges well via solar panels as well and as you probably guessed, I did make a video of this available to view in my YouTube channel! It is pretty epic actually, the idea that you could be off the grid for this for days by charging it via a Solar Panel if the sunlight conditions were ideal.
The menu, navigation, and display/notification icons are absolutely stellar. The OLED screen does a fine job of displaying all of the information you need and the nice thing about it is that it allows anyone to pick this up and use it according to the depth and interest they have in its features and info. I can hand this to my technology-distrusting father and he can plug in his phone and get it charging with the simple push of a the power button. For someone like me who really likes to know everything about the device and what it is doing, it comes with an easy to read paper manual and the Omnicharge staff is really great about answering emails and questions in a timely fashion.
Essentially, this is a device for the whole family and not just those who are tech savvy! My younger siblings love using it for charging their phones and tablets in the living room while being able to hook up a power strip to power other things like lamps, electric toothbrushes, and TVs just for fun! This Omnicharge has been in my school bag every day as I do my clinical rotations and attend lectures for nursing school. I cannot tell you how many times I and fellow cohorts have had laptops die on us during 4 hour long classes or 12+ hour clinical experiences. This device is going to be the envy of my class and I am guessing several of my cohorts are probably going to end up buying Omni 20's or 13's for themselves!
Take it from a nursing student/ gamer/ video maker/ social media addict/ tech nut, you are going to find some use for this device no matter what your occupation or hobbies might be!
If this word soup review has helped you, please do give me a like so others can see this too. Again, the video reviews I have made really lay it all out for this product so do click on the link in the comments if that interests you. I will be making more Omni 20 videos later on as well as people tell me what they want to see and new accessories/changes come out!
Keep in mind that at the time of this review (April 1st, 2017), Omnicharge is a BRAND SPANKING NEW gleaming technology company freshly graduated from crowd-funded company status. Give it time, and this beautiful device and its progeny are going to be available the world over in all sorts of configurations, sizes, and I/O setups!!!
Thank you so much and good luck with your purchasing decision! I hope you like the pictures too!
*No cute fuzzy animals were actually tested with the Omni 20 in the making of this review. ;)

Wow!!! This thing attracts positive attention!! Today, in our first Pathophysiology lecture of the term, I pulled out my 2015 MacBook Pro and this Omni 20 quipped with the MagSafe 2 DC Out cable and hooked it up on my desk. Within 5 minutes I had my MacBook Pro charging via the DC out feature, my friend's HP convertible laptop via the AC outlet, and my iPhone via a USB port! People were looking on, asking questions, and general praise and interest was the reaction! I was also happy to hand over the Omni 13 and Omni 20 I bought for my friends during the campaign and they are both ecstatic about them! However, my friend with the Omni 13 is now wishing she had gone with the Omni 20 since the Omni 13 can't do DC out which means she still has to bring her 2015 MacBook Pro charger with her. She is still happy she doesn't have to stay near wall outlets, though :)
When I first opened up my 2015 MBP 13" for my 2 hour lecture on Pathophysiology and Pharmacology, it had 48%. I hooked it up to the Omni 20 while it was also trickle charging my buddies fully charged HP laptop and my iPhone 5s as well. When I left class, the power bank was completely dead, my laptop had 85%, and the iPhone and HP laptop were both still fully charged even during use! That is amazing! The key thing here to understand is that the Omni 20 didn't just go from 100% to 0% simply charging the devices in that 2 hour span, it did so while powering AND charging two laptops and an iPhone at the same time! THAT is the impressive thing. I was using Microsoft OneNote, Word, and PowerPoint and was on the web looking at the lecture notes and researching the pathology topics the whole time during that class and my friend on their HP laptop was doing the same. I have exactly ZERO regrets about owning this thing right now. I will be back soon with more updates! Cheers!
*Update June 5th, 2017*
I have had my Omni 20 for over two months now and it still surprises me with how handy it is at least a couple times of week. Has it changed my life drastically? No. Has it improved the convenience of using a laptop everyday, impacted my choice of study location decisions, and work flow decisions? Absolutely. Having this kind of power on hand at any time is really more wonderful than can be described. Since I last worked on this interview a little over a month ago, the Omni 20 has gotten me through a variety of scenarios including a night-long power outage in which we utilized the Omni 20 for my high-powered USB powered room light for the bathroom (for showering) and for the beside lamp and charging a very starved phone. It worked incredibly for this and I will be posting a short video on my YouTube channel soon about it! I also have had it in my backpack literally 5-6 days out of every week while I have been in school and nursing clincals and it has worked superbly. I have gradually been forgetting what the stress feels like when my computer is dying and there are no wall outlets accessible within reach or available at all in a busy Starbucks on a Saturday morning. Like I said, nursing students (at least in my program, I am sure most others) use our computers absolutely all of the time in and out of class be it note taking, pre-clinical or post-clinical patient charting, and for general homework, study, lecture video viewing, and more. As such, the Omni 20 has been a true enhancement to the most critical piece of hardware in my nursing school supply and has gotten other students and myself out of some tough spots when our computers are dying in the middle of online tests or lectures.
Being totally candid, a feature I am looking forward to, be it a model refresh or an add-on module, is a port for USB-C in and out charging. USB-C is swiftly taking over the market due to its versatility and ability to provide power delivery (PD) to devices requiring less than 100W at peak and as such this Omni 20 would be nearly perfect if it offered such a feature. During their Indiegogo campaign back in October or November, I remember that Omnicharge developers were on the fence about whether they were going to do a barrel plug or USB-C for power delivery. They went with the barrel plug for many good reasons at the time, which included the fact that the barrel plug charger for the Omni 20 can charge the device itself much quicker than a basic USB-C wall plug can and the fact that USB-C still wasn't quite that widespread. Alas, now we are seeing ultrabooks, phones, and other sub-100W powered devices quickly trending towards widespread utilization of USB-C and as such it will be important for the future of Omnicharge and other power bank companies to adopt builds that can provide USB PD for higher powered devices. Upon speaking with Omnicharge customer service at some point a while ago, I remember them mentioning that they were thinking about or already working on a USB-C in and out attachment module for the Omni 20. This will be a joy for 2016 and newer Mac owners and others whose technology is USB-C centric. Keep an eye out for my updated review if or when the USB-C module comes out! This will be exciting because it will mean that you will be able to leave your USB-C chargers and power bricks at home for the device and just take your Omni 20 and a high quality USB-C cable with it!
- Built like a tank
- Looks really nice
- The screen and how to operate it is great
- It charges (itself) fast
- It's severely outdated. It would not do fast charge on any of my devices
- It's really expensive, specially given the mAh and the previous point
- Buggy. I once had it fully charged, turned it off, turned it back on and said it had 1% battery. Then kept at 1% while it charged 2 phones all the way to 100%.
- No C port
- Charge port is occupied by charging, so you can't charge your laptop using the "small cables" while charging the device at the same time
- They are launching a better version very soon (without AC)
I found that while the device supports through charging, the MagSafe 2 adapter that comes in the all-in bundle requires using the DC out to charge, which means you either need to daisy chain the Omnicharge with an existing MagSafe 2 adapter to through charge via the AC out, or you can only charge the battery OR charge your laptop, but not at the same time.
I'll be returning my device, and looking out for the USB-C version of the Omnicharge in the future when I (have to) upgrade my Macbook Pro. I still use a MagSafe 2 Macbook Pro, but from the details of the USB-C version of this product on Indiegogo, it certainly appears it will support pass through charging use cases for the new Macbook.
