No weight specified although reviews state it's slim and lightweight.

10000 is not that big imo.
I bought couple weeks ago a 20000 for $20.00 on Amazon.
These things are always on sale, look around.

I'd be very curious to see if many of these batteries hold what they claim to. I know tons of rechargable AA batteries lie about their capacity - I have many my wife bought that claim to be 1500 or 2100 mah, but my charger shows them to only be 500-800.

I missed out on that one, I think it was an Aukey or Anker? Anyways, I'm holding out for a better deal too.

I bought the big white one on primecables for $10 last year and its been our go to for in-house charging when we don't want to be tethered to a wall. I think it's 16,000 capacity, I haven't tested to see how much it actually holds but it does last a very long time (and takes a like a day to charge too!). Been waiting for that deal to come around again but not sure it will...
we have a smaller one to take with us outside the house but after paying $10 for the big one i can see myself wanting to spend any more for less capacity. Spoiled i guess!

I bought one last year and I'm very pleased it recharges my cell very fast I was surprised, bying 2 others for gifts, a little heavy but it's a 10,000mAh great usb3 and C with micro USB. 5 lights that states the juice left or when charging ( the 5th light doesn't work, oh well ! ) I'm good for 4 or 5 recharge for my cell. For I it's a good deal !

I wish they would make the charging port USB-C as well or give the option of micro usb and USB-C.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

USB-C ports are usually input/output by definition.
That is unless the manufacturer went out of their way to configure the port to be one way only (which is possible but seems unlikely)

If you read some of the reviews for the item you will see someone reporting that the USB-C port is indeed input/output.

While i don't own this particular power bank, i do own another power bank that also has USB-C and micro-USB ports, and the USB-C port is both input/output.
The online description for my power bank also incorrectly listed input only for the USB-C port. The manual that came with it, plus the printed specification written on the physical device clearly stated input and output values for the USB-C port.

I think that many sites are just lazy and instead of reading the manuals, they are listing specifications with a cut and paste of older micro usb models, and they don't grasp the fact that USB-C ports can do both input and output.

They used to have a similar one made of lithium polymer battery, not sure why they discounted it. Was waiting for a deal like this...

Not sure if my logic is flawed but I already have a 10,000 mAh powerbank and thinking this one as backup is better in case one craps out on my trip and worth the added weight than buying a 20,000 mAh one on Amazon.
