2 for 22-Anker Powercore 3a 10400mAh

mymemory have a 2 for £22 deal on Anker Powercore 10400mAh powerbanks with free UK delivery.

https://www.mymemory.co.uk/anker-3a-...h-poweriq.html

Two charging ports & quick charge.

Seem to be around same price for one on amazon.

You will likely need to use AP as I've had issues getting batteries shipped before.

EDIT: Seems they're available on the .ie site as well (2 for €27.50) with free delivery, assuming they'll ship batteries here.

Edited the OP to state "fast" charge as per Anker's own description.

"Fast-Charging Technology - Anker’s exclusive PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technologies combine to ensure the fastest possible charge up to 2.4 amps"

Hi,
I'm easily confused by all this power, but would this be good/worthless for keeping a Nintendo Switch charged during a flight?

I was able to order on the UK site with no issue. No sign of a cancellation email either

It seems to be expired now.
But even so, at €17 for just one, it seems a great price compared to Amazon.

The VC5 code will still get you a few more pennies off...

That doesn't seem long? Are you one of these that uses it on the couch rather than plug in?

How many times could you charge a standard smartphone off one of these?

Would I be right to say if you had a phone capable of 2000mah, you could in theory charge it from empty 5 times?

No, the energy transfer isn't that efficient. I'd say you'd get 3-4 times.

The problem is its measured in a slightly misleading way.

USB is 5v, your phones charge at 5v, but the cell chemistry is 3.7v. So a 10400mAh pack is only 7696mAh maximum. Then transfer that and you're down at about 90% efficiency so you get 6900mAh. So your 10Ah pack is actually 7Ah in numbers that make sense to the end user, or about 3 full charges.
