[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).

you need a battery bank that says it does power delivery, or PD. Usually they are usb-c chargers. Amazon has plenty.

with current technology, lighter weight means lower mAh power bank. so you're looking at 10,000 or 60,000mAh rated power banks.

but honestly the weight of a 20,000mAh rated power bank isn't that bad. just slip it into a back pack or fanny pack.

1. it is really heavy.
its 20,100 mah -- its a lot of battery... its going to be 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
the charger that apple includes with iphones is 5v1A which "slow" charging
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.
the battery outputs 5v2.4A (more than twice as fast as your apple one) so they phone charges faster and gets warm doing it

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.
