Iconic Pink Floyd style
The Shargeek 170 power bank is eye-catching. Inspired by Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, it’s not just a power bank; it’s a style statement. The clear prism design echoes the triangular prism on the album’s front cover.
Meanwhile, because of the clear exterior, we get to see the inner workings of the power bank. The exposed motherboard adds a true sci-fi look that’s sure to start conversations with your coworkers, friends, and passersby.
2-way fast charging
Meanwhile, this transparent charger has all the practical features you could want. A case in point is the pass-through charging feature. You can count on the device to power your gadgets while it charges.
Then, with its 170W max. output and PD 3.1 technology, it revives devices in no time. Recharging from 0% to 50% in just 20 minutes is no small feat, thanks to the 140W max. input.
So with just a 20-minute charge, your smartphone will be at 50% battery. That’s about half a day’s worth of power for a charging session that lasts about the same amount of time it takes to reply to a few emails.
A helpful smart display
The smart display embedded in the Shargeek 170 is also useful. Its screen shows battery percentage and real-time information. From power status to charging performance, it keeps you in the loop with every energy transfer.
Specifically, it shows how efficiently and effectively your devices power. So you get detailed feedback on the charging cycle. It’s like having your own personal charging supervisor, giving you a heads-up on when your devices will be ready for use.
3-device fast charging
My favorite feature of this transparent charger is its 3-device fast charging capability. Because who doesn’t want to charge more gadgets at once?
Armed with 1 USB-A and 2 USB-C ports, the Shargeek 170 stands out as a versatile powerhouse. Yes, it can handle a combination of smartphones, tablets, laptops, or any USB-enabled gadget at once.
So you won’t have to choose between charging your tablet and your smartphone the next time both are running out of battery while you’re working from a coffee shop. You’ll charge both.
Overall, this portable power bank improves productivity. Its ability to manage multiple devices simultaneously without sacrificing speed or quality makes it a quintessential addition to any tech-savvy individual’s arsenal.
A massive 24,000 mAH battery capacity
Additionally, with the Shargeek 170, you can say goodbye to low-battery anxiety for good, even on your busiest days. With its 24,000 mAh battery, you get the reassurance that your devices will stay charged throughout the day.
What makes this capacity even more impressive is what lies beneath the surface. The Shargeek 170 comprises 6 durable electric-vehicle-grade batteries. So you can count on it to deliver long-lasting and reliable performance.
But it doesn’t stop there. Unlike other power banks that tend to lose their capacity after a certain number of charging cycles, the Shargeek 170 stands strong. Boasting over 800 charges, it maintains over 80% capacity. This resilience over time is a testament to its build quality and efficient energy management. You can expect it to be a reliable and enduring power source for years.
Safety features for the unexpected
At the end of the day, power banks are electric appliances that can be dangerous. For that reason, the Shargeek team packed this transparent charger with plenty of safety features.
Safety features are a cornerstone of Shargeek’s design philosophy. The IP4 water-resistance protects against accidental spills and sudden splashes. This lets you focus on your tasks without fretting over that spilled coffee or an unexpected drizzle.

Overvoltage, overcurrent, overload, overheating, short circuits, and undervoltage are not just tech jargon but also real threats that can harm your devices. The Shargeek 170 shields against each, keeping your gadgets safe and the power bank functioning at its best.
Innovative solar charging
Interestingly, the Shargeek 170 introduces an innovative solar charging capability, extending its use far beyond traditional power banks. Combined with the optional Solar Panel, this power bank is a gateway to sustainable, eco-friendly power.
With the sun’s energy, the Solar Panel has a maximum output of 12W, allowing the Shargeek 170 to tap into an infinite power source. Can you imagine carrying a power bank that gets its energy from the sun? It’s a feature that certainly makes portable power more eco-friendly.

To sum it up, the Shargeek 170 isn’t just your typical power bank.
