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.

MicroUSB input, no USB-C output, no USB PD support.

This is their older, outdated model.

I'd hold out until one of the PD versions goes on sale again for around the same price.

This is accurate:
Lithium ion battery nominal voltage is typically 3.7V.

27000 mAh / 1000 * 3.7V ≈ 100Wh, TSA limit.

Nah, get the one with the Lightning input to charge and only carry one cable for both

If you want PD and USB-C, their current model is this one but not on sale right now. Of course, there are other brands too.

https://www.amazon.ca/Anker-PowerCore-E ... ics&sr=1-3

There are so many damn charger models even among one brand....hard to keep track of them all. IQ1.0, IQ2.0, IQ3.0, Some with PD 2.0, 3.0 etc.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.
