Seems it’s more like 12-15000mAh from reviews.

I can tell you that most of the power bank selling in Amazon provides the fake storage mAh even Anker and Aukey. This is the reply from the seller and in fact it is true for all power banks. However, if you don't have a background related to electricity, you won't understand what he is talking about.

1: the battery is 3.7v, so it need to boost the 5v to charge cellphone, so it will lose 10%power during the voltage conversion.
2:When the mobile power is running, the transmission effeciency of the current between the wires and the components can not reach 100%. This is because no matter what the material of the wire, the components and the battery has a resistance, so it will lose 10% during current conversion.
3:It will save 5%power when there is less power left. So the battery is 75%efficient, account for power lost through circuit heat and voltage conversion, almost all the seller are the same.

I don't understand that why many people rely on Fakespot. In my opinion, the Fakespot is not reliable most of the time. If you know how to read reviews, then you should trust yourself rather than relying on Fakespot.

I wouldn’t plug my MacBook into this thing since there’s no mention of USB-PD.

And I’m sure I’m not alone in this - items that aren’t spell checked get an instant pass from me. If you cut corners on a speel checker, where else did you cut corners?

In my experience you get what you pay for with power banks, I doubt this is actually 20000.

With this price, you probably can only buy the adapter for Power delivery. If you are looking for PD power bank with this size, you probably need to pay over $50.

It is the fact that every seller (including the more popular brand like Aukey and Anker), they don't put the actual storage mAh under the product specification. You will only get about 70%-75% of what they said in the product specification.

This is garbage. Stick with Anker at least they are reliable and has a good warranty.

For people who support Ankers, it will be available as the lightning deal on Sept 16@17:05. Not sure what will be the deal, but I believe you need to pay at least double the price compared to the X-DRAGON
