The primary use for these first generation powerbanks are convenience, mobility and freedom.
Sure the fast charging ones can do the same but at cost and what are you using to kill your phone or tablet so much?
First generation uses i can think of are:
On the go to and from work, home, wherever.
Im just curious as to the benefits of fast over cheap.

Power-banks actually make sense only with fast charging.

for both scenarios, can't you just keep the mobile battery connected? lol... if you are taking the battery with you to charge during your commute to work, why can't you charge it during work? can't take photos with a cable hooked up to the phone? lol...Hahahapxl wrote: ↑ Power-banks actually make sense only with fast charging.
Scenario 1 - Forgot to charge phone overnight and battery is only 20%? A fast charger can push it up to respectable 70-80% within 20 mins during your commute to work.
Scenario 2 - You are out taking photos and battery dropped to 20% but you are not done with photos, a quick 15-20 minute fast charge can save you from regret of missing capturing memorable moments.

Convenience and fast charging saves time. TBH fast charge power banks don't cost that much more, you can definitely find decent ones under $60. This one for example:
The point is that with a fast charging power bank you won't have to. You are paying more for flexibility and saving time.

The most likely scenario here is that you can quickly charge in the car or plane and leave it in the car / luggage.
