Tronsmart recently announced a new power bank called the Tronsmart Presto. The Tronsmart Presto features a 12000mAh lithium polymer battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technolgy and USB Type-C Fast Charging.
The Tronsmart Presto features a standard USB-A port that will charge devices with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology. With Quick Charge 3.0, compatible devices can be charged up to 4 times faster than conventional charging. It’s also fully backwards compatible with Quick Charge 2.0 and any other device not using the technology.
The power bank also features a USB Type-C port for charging the power bank itself and any Type-C compatiable device. The power bank would normally take 12-18 hours to recharge with micro-USB, but with Type-C Fast Charging it’s only ~6.5 hours.

You don’t need to worry about the power bank malfunctioning either due to the fast charging times as Tronsmart have included 11S circuit protection. This includes protection against short-circuits, overcharging and overheating.
Tronsmart have said that the power bank has a conversion rate up to 93% and remains below 90 Degrees C during operation. This is better than a lot of other generic power banks that have an ~80% conversion rate and often overheat.
The power bank itself is quite slim and follows the design of other Tronsmart products. It measures 158mm x 55mm and the body appears to be made from ABS plastic. The power bank has 4 white lights to indicate the power level while charging and the ports are clearly labelled as QC3 Out and Type-C In/Out.
