I'm personally waiting for the price to drop. It's been ~$65 a few time in the past and as low as $60
I'd definitely go with the Anker myself considering the charger and brand's upper quality.
I posted this so we dont compare bananas to apples.

Any reasons why these USB-C chargers only have one USB-C slot? I want to be able to charge multiple USB-C devices at once... yes I understand I can use USB-A to USB-C to charge but obviously not at the same speed as USB-C to USB-C.

Perhaps multiple USB-C charges overload the charger?

Most of the PD chargers, banks sucks. Watch out, mostly likely killing your device.

Follow Nathan K. And Benson Leung.
I remember reading about this (usb-c noncompliant issue) and that's why I hesitate to jump on this deal, despite excellent price; probably gonna stick with the charger from Apple, just to play it safe, because a macbook pro ain't cheap to fix or replace.

The previously posted Aukey PD power bank, I got for ~$75, but I don't believe that seller has had it in stock for some time. It has served me well, but this Anker is tempting - I'd like to have a second PD power bank on hand. Up until now, I've only seen the Anker at a ridiculous $200+

Been looking at this for my Switch and work laptop, but this has me nervous.

finally we are getting into the territory where power banks can charge a laptop.
Looks like the power bank is not meant to charge the laptop, but the USB-C wall charger they include can do it.
that price tho..ouch.

it was $234.99 previously on amazon.ca according to camel and currently $119.99 USD on Amazon.com.

Good for charging new USB-C MacBooks and Nintendo Switch.

Pretty sure $234.99 is the inflated non-retail price on Amazon.ca... this should be about $145 CAD.

This price is a joke right?
Aukey doesn't specify the quality of their cells and doesn't have USB-PD delivery.

Personally I'm waiting for the Anker PowerCore II PowerIQ 2.0 26800 model which will enable it to deliver USB 18W and support QC too.

I'm very happy with my PowerCore II 10,000mah battery, it's one of the fastest chargers on the market due to PowerIQ 2.0 support.

Could be or there are no multiple output USB-C chipsets available yet?


Also, 30,000 mah batteries are too big to take onto planes without airline/prior approval. It's best to stick to 26,800mah if you travel.

That one isnt Power Delivery compliant, this is the AUKEY 30000 PD charger:

https://www.amazon.ca/AUKEY-Portable-30 ... 071CQYBSN/
I know that it doesn't say that it's PD (power Delivery) compliant.
However, I have used this very same model to power my HP Laptop (Spectre x360) which is only PD compliant.
It works, and it works fast.

Please excuse me. My model is a Aukey PB-Y7, which is 30000 ma, which does do PD. I believe that Aukey has changed things so that the max they will do is 26500.
Mine doesn't look exactly like the picture on Amazon - the orange and green coloured USB ports are reversed on mine.

I've never had an issue with carrying a Aukey PB-Y7 30000 onto a plane (which I've done many times).
