    Excellent article.

    Do you recommend buying Chinese power banks. I was thinking of buying one built by Xiaomi.

      Hi Billy,

      I am not very familiar with Xiaomi, but I have heard good things about their power banks. If you decide to buy one from Xiaomi, just make sure it’s a legit product from them and not some scammer selling a cheap version. This website will help you spot the difference : https://www.techmesto.com/identify-fake-xiaomi-power-bank/

    Hi Franc,
    First of all thanks much for your informative guide.This one turned out to be a great article. But I was expecting you would be mentioning about the input power rating and the output power rating of the powerbanks which respectively implies how fast a powerbank can charge itself and the attaching devices.
