The most annoying thing about this power bank is that the physical structure of it is great. It supports the four 18650 cells well and has a nice PCB mounting system. The battery wires have good clearance and it’s altogether quite rugged. Shame about the capacity and the way the listing assured it was a “Guaranteed 10600mAh capacity”. The whole unit is probably capable of being a much better power bank when built with decent components, but in this form it’s clearly been made to look the part and cater to the fake specification market. On a plus note the cells do at least appear to be real 1000mAh ones and not a mixture of real cells and weighted cases.
