[Amazon.ca] Anker Powercore II 10000 - $35.69

I bought 3 of these at the regular price and this is the cheapest I've seen it. 10000mAh and comes in a tiny package and not too heavy. The case that comes with it is a tad on the big side. I think it was made for the older 10000 power bank which is larger than this one.

I don't think USB A or Micro USB are going to be going away anytime soon.

Lol because of all the people that carry a USB-C to USB-C cable with them at all times?

Most people have normal USB A to C cables. Like the ones that come with their phones/tablets.

Micro USB is pretty much done deal at this point. Even new Sony noise canceling headphones are type C charging.

Doesn’t bother me, just about every Anker power bank uses micro USB to charge.

It's a battery, What bells and whistles are you missing out on by using a USB A to C cable?

It supports QC both for charging the pack, and for charging a device.

No USB-PD either, so no fast charging for Pixels or iPhone 8 and newer.

I've had this for about 6 months. Works beautifully. The cord I use with it is a micro-usb and I add a small usb c adapter to charge my Samsung S9 (it does fast charge but can't speak for other devices)
With Zoomer Wireless !

Only reason I bought one is because my laptop only has 2 A ports and there were being used for something else. Otherwise I have no use for a C - C cable, all my cables are A - C.

I have a bunch of USB-C devices and have exactly zero USB-C to USB-C cables.

For phones? Sure.
For other USB powered things? I doubt it.
Hell I'm still getting MiniUSB at this point and that's been dead for who knows how long.

I can do you one better for about $50 with 3 outs and 2 input charging. I own this and I love it

Also for reference this USB PD anker power bank was $48 until it sold out recently with a coupon code, probably would have snagged one if I didn't own an eeco power bank for small top ups
