[Amazon.ca] Anker 20100mAh Portable Powerbank 39.99

Was browsing for a powerbank for my parents and found this. I have had good experience with anker batteries in the past and the price point is decent.
Currently listed as 45.99, but there is a $6 coupon button that you click to get extra $6 off. Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

Micro USB input. You will be carrying around extra cable just to charge the battery pack.

You raise an excellent point, and i'm sure a lot of iphone users have this problem regardless. But for my parents' use case, they won't have the bring a micro usb cable because this will be taken out only when they go out.

Great point... however... how many people that buys this will use up 20100 mAh in a single trip? O _o

i used it and it was ok. there was 3 main concerns and i returned it.

1. it is really heavy.
2. it charges very slow - i used it to charge my iphone xr and ipad and both charged extremely slow. i was using the cable that came with the phone/ipad
3. it makes your device warm to hot - my iphone would get extremely warm to the point that i was worried the battery get damaged.

maybe i had a faulty unit. i've had bad experience with 3rd party chargers so i didn't want to risk damaging my devices and returned it.

You can get those 2-in-1 cables that have USB-C and Microusb on one cable, but I think it would be slightly more expensive yeah

I'd expect more sales in the future, most including Anker are moving to USB-C (input at least).

I had this one for about a 9 months and then the charge faded.

Great bank, but price will go down to $30 every now and then.
