In today’s world, everybody is on the move, traveling from place to place, engaging in different work environments. With such a mobile life with gadgets like smartphones, headphones etc, you probably won’t even have time or option to recharge your devices with a traditional wall charger. Well, with the improvement of battery banks, things are much simpler and convenient today than it was 10 years ago. Powerbanks of today support wireless charging, PD (power delivery) quick charging and are packed in a much smaller space than before.

In this post, I am reviewing a wireless powerbank from Hokonui. HOKONUI might sound a little unfamiliar to you, but they have a good range of products that you should definitely look at. They have different types of power banks including QI Wireless Charging battery banks.
The following is their updated model, everything is the same except the design
What’s in the Box?
The package contains the power bank, user manual, USB to micro USB cable, USB to type C cable
The design and look of this power bank are above average. It comes with a glossy surface that is very slippery and I myself dropped it a couple of times. Also, the surface is a fingerprint magnet. There are 4 ports on the power bank, two USB ports, 1 micro USB port and 1 USB C port. The USB C port has a PD symbol on it and has an output power capacity of 12W. The power bank can ve charged via micro USB or type C port. The output is via USB and type C port.
There is a button on the left side to turn on the wireless charging. The button sucks. On the right side of the battery bank, there is an extension arm that can be used as a mobile stand. The picture below shows it in detail.
The power capacity of the Hokonui wireless battery bank is 10,000 mAh.
Some of the product features include
- Two USB ports that can simultaneously charge 2 devices/gadgets using USB cables
- One micro USB port to charge the power bank
- One USB C port to quick charge the power bank
- LCD display showing the remaining battery percentage
- Top surface with QI wireless charging capability
What is my opinion on this powerbank?
I tried the power bank with my Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and the results were amazing. I never knew a power bank could fast charge your phone wirelessly. It was crazy. The quick charging time was the same as that of Samsung Wired Quick Charging which is roughly about one and a half hours which is impressive.
The power bank fits in your pocket and it is very convenient to carry. The power efficiency isn’t bad at all. It has been more than a year since I started using this gadget and it is working flawlessly even today. Apart from the glossy slippery surface, everything else is impressive with this power bank.
PS: They are now offering a similar power bank with a better surface, check here

RadCad AA Battery Charger Review
Yes, that is the input port
Thank you Nad for the reply.
Yes, I have tried using micro USB as well, but same power surge error appears and the power-bank does not charge or light on. I have contacted the manufacturer/seller and told me that it has capacitor to protect the power surge, hence should not be damaged. And they asked me to send the video attached in the reply showing the error, which Amazon does not somehow allow to attach video files.
Now, I am waiting for the seller’s reply. Lets see hopefully, they have some better solution for this issue.
Sounds good, hope they help
Hokonui wireless power bank made power surge issue when connected to USB type C, and now whole power bank does not work. Any solution for it please?
Looks like the excessive current broke the power bank. Try using micro usb to charge it, see if it works. If nothing works, contacting the manufacturer is a better option, I think the power bank has a warranty of a year or two.
The middle smaller sized port on my battery is not marked with any ID info. If=s that the input charging port? Is there an instruction manual for the charger that I can download?
