How about using your purchase power buying phones with better batteries or removable batteries. Swapping a battery out midday is a lot less problematic than being tethered to a power brick which is essentially taking the long way just to use another battery that limits your mobility

Digger DanielG says:

You better read first. MiliIamp Hours = How much current the battery bank can supply for an hour. Or to put another way, if you have a true battery bank rated as 2600 mAh, then tou can pull 2.6 amps for an hour. If not then the rating is false. So if your phone pulls .5 Amps and you have a 2600 mAh battery bank, then the battery bank will last ( 2.6 / .5 = 5.2 hours). Now if the phone has a battery that holds .8 amps then it will take 1.6 hours to charge the phone. I hope this helps. Most battery banks are very liberal in their ratings.

Clinton Boucheix says:

Hey, I’ve been buying and trying many power Banks and that 2.0 amp port had been a lie in every case. What gives? And my phone supports rapid charging. It has a 4000 mAh capacity and when I use the wall charger that’s readied at 5v 2A, I get a sweet 1200-1500 mA charge. When I try the 2 amp port in these power Banks, they put out an average of 200-300 mA.

What’s the deal with that?

Boi where the fuck is USB-C and 3A output. That shit has existed for at *least* two years already and this video is only a little over a year old. Not a very helpful video.

Rhey Jen Crusem says:

Over 9000!!!

Brendan Smith says:

Beware of obscenely high capacities. Just bought a supposedly 300,000 mah bank. It will probably actually hold 6000 to 10000 mah judging from its size.

I have ipad pro so i need 29 watt usb c, i have switch so i need 18watt usb c, i have note 5 so i need 15watt quick charge. Which is the best powerbank for me 15000mah plus please

Fabbesson says:

Start at 0:49

Ann Elisabeth says:

Test’em yourself. USB testers start at a little over a dollar for a simple model. I bought a powerbank that had a 1 Ah output and a 2 Ah output. Guess what? The 1 Ah delivered 0.5Ah to a device that prefers 1 Ah, and the 2 Ah delivered 1 Ah to a device that prefers 2 Ah. And I didn’t connect both at the same time. It’s capabable of delivering more, though. A load and tester went up to over 2 Ah on the 2 Ah port before it crapped out. So why didn’t my devices draw more?

Jose Rodriguez says:

Is a 20,000Mah battery back too much? I’m interested in one by Tzumi Pocket Juice

Bupowski says:

I’m thinking about getting Anker’s power bank, but I am afraid because if I decide to change my phone to something new like Samsung Galaxy S9 from iPhone 6s plus, I believe that it won’t work.

realtbnrfrags10 says:

IT’S CALLED POWER BANK sorry no anger

Paul says:

Just ordered the Anker 26800 Mah from Amazon, hope it’s as good as they say it is. Costed £99.99 Which is about $140 usd
