Companies that sell power banks are now getting better at being able to fit higher power capacities into smaller compartments. The great thing about that is that we’re able to take lots of power with us wherever we go and be less worried about if a power bank is going to be portable or not because now there are lots of power banks that have relatively high power capacities that are actually very small and lightweight. Another great thing about these types of portable chargers is that they’re using special charging tech such as Quick Charge and now there are very portable power banks that make use of special charging tech.
A power bank just like that is this Aukey 10,050mAh power bank that has a very small size for its power capacity and also for its charging abilities too.
The power capacity of this power bank starts at 10,050mAh and the conversion rate of its initial capacity is going to change depending on the way that you’re using the charging abilities that it has. The reason that the conversion of power will vary with this power bank is because of its use of Quick Charge, because if you’re actually using the Quick Charge with a Quick Charge compatible smartphone then the conversion of power is going to be worse than if you were to charge it with a Non-Compatible smartphone.
That’s because Quick Charge offers faster charging speeds and that makes the conversion of power worse because the conversion of power is happening at a faster rate. For this review though, we’re going to calculate the average conversion rate that you would have and the Output power capacity that you would receive; then we’ll determine how much you would get with the use of Quick Charge based on an average conversion rate of the power capacity.
3.7 x 10,050 = 37,185 / 5 = 7437
