[Amazon.ca] Anker 20,000mah powerbank (prime users 25.99)

Prime users get this deal at this price. No usb c but the capacity and size of this one is a good balance. Not an issue for me as i have the cables from usb c to reg usb. When travelling becomes good for everyone again, this will be very handy too..cant get enough powerbanks lol in for 1!

I have a lot of anker powerbanks and none have failed. Pretty much have 1 in each capacity as i find use for the physical sizes that i have, from short to loooooong flights even camping too.

Yup however the kilo and mili cancel, so 20Ah would be less redundant than 20000 mAh

Exactly - "kilo-milli-amper-hour" makes me cringe... It's like to say my height is 1.8 kilo-milli-meters :)

It's a prefix, not our problem it has universally been shortened from kilogram to kilo by the layperson.

That would be 20 kilo-mega-ampere-hours, so 20,000,000,000 A-h ?

Not sure what you're getting at...
'kilo' is a suffix that literally has meant thousand for centuries, which has the symbol 'k'

"High-speed charging: but... Qualcomm Quick Charge not supported."

So, it's bog slow 10W charging. What is this, 2016? I mean seriously?

the one you linked has a max output of 2.1A x 2

the anker has a max output of 2.4A x 2 (same output as an ipad charger)

i'd pay a bit more for the extra juice/output

2.1 or 2.4A, there's no difference, it's the same hardware.

And you'll RARELY see that 2.1 or 2.4A delivered. Most devices suck up less than that when charging. Get one of those USB power meter things, most of my devices will hit the 2A level for only a short bit of the charging cycle (usually in the middle), on either end they will charge at slower rates, (usually 7.5-9W), and at termination at very low rates (<5W).

You won't see much of a difference with a charger rated at 2.4A vs 2A, they are both ancient slow chargers.

If you want REAL charging speed, get a QC or PD charger (as applicable to your device). My PD charger stays at 18W for a large amount of it's charging cycle on my PD2 capable device.
