The Pantheon Portable Apple Watch Powerbank will be an excellent addition to your EDC (Every Day Carry). This little power bank has saved me many times over the past year that I have been using it. Not only is it a power bank but it can also double as a plugged in charger. The fact that it does both means your Apple Watch will never be on your wrist like cereal without milk – useless.

REAL LIFE USE
I have been using the Pantheon Portable Apple Watch Powerbank for a little over a year now. As I am always looking for something better it probably is the secondary device I have carried the longest. It is hard to beat a product that is small, lightweight, and works as it is intended.
I really am not able to find much wrong with this device. The only slight issue I had early on was learning the hard way that even when the power bank is plugged in, I still need to power the Pantheon on. My silliness had me thinking simply plugging it in would automatically turn it on.
Being able to charge the Pantheon Power Bank while charging my Apple Watch has been a savior many times over.
|Product||Charging Time||Begin %||End %||Total Charge|
|Apple Watch Series 4 GPS 44mm||30 min||46%||74%||28%|
Testing note: when testing charging devices I test for 30 minutes. I want to know how much of a charge I can get in a short period of time – getting ready for the day, commuting, or just before leaving work.
PROS & CONS
- small in size
- Very lightweight
- Keychain allows you to clip it anywhere
- Charges Apple Watch fast (comparable to Apples included charging cord)
- Charges Apple Watch while charging the power bank
- battery is enough for a little over 1 full charge of the watch. Being able to get 2 charges would be nice
- $37.97 (December 2019)
As I have stated multiple times in this post, this has been one of the most used devices I have had and longest carried devices. It goes with me on every trip I take. In a hotel, I use it on the night stand plugged into a usb hub (review coming soon) to charge my Apple Watch while I am getting ready for the day. This also charges up the Pantheon to ensure I have excess battery all day long.
With Apple’s cost of their charging cord being $29 – $39, depending on the length, I find $37.97 for a device that works as a charger and a power bank to be extremely reasonable.
