Aukey Mini USB-C Powerbank with 10.000 mAh Capacity for $16.99
There are now plenty of power banks, from power banks in pizza design to power stations with more than 140,000 mAh. The Aukey Mini USB-C Powerbank with 10,000 mAh capacity even offers up to 20W output power and is particularly compact.

Even though Aukey is no longer listed on Amazon, we are still convinced of the quality of their products. We have not been able to test this powerbank yet, but we have already tried several other models from the manufacturer. The Aukey PB-N83 is particularly compact and has a length of 8 cm with a width of 5.5 cm and a thickness of 3 cm. This makes it even smaller than the Omars Mini Pro and thus comparable to a lighter. The button on the top is used to start the charging process or to display the status of the battery capacity in four status LEDs.
Despite the small size, there is a battery capacity of 10,000 mAh. Like so many manufacturers, the specification should be correct at a voltage of 3.7V. However, since charging is done with at least 5V, the specification has to be converted. The capacity is 37 Wh, which corresponds to 7,400 mAh at a 5V voltage. That should therefore be enough to completely charge a mid-range smartphone like a Redmi Note 10 Pro about 1.5 times. You can charge quickly with up to 20W when you use the USB-C port on one side, which is also particularly intended for current iPhones thanks to Power Delivery. If you need a USB-A port, you can use the one on the other side, which supplies 18W via Quick Charge 3.0.
The powerbank is charged via the USB-C port. You can charge the powerbank itself and charge another device via USB-A at the same time – practical! For protection, the manufacturer integrates mechanisms against overheating, overcurrent and overcharging. In addition to the Aukey powerbank, a USB-A to USB-C cable and the user manual are included.
Like many manufacturers, they advertise the Aukey Mini USB-C Powerbank with 10,000 mAh capacity for the iPhone, but due to two ports, Power Delivery and Quick Charge, it is suitable for multiple devices. Due to the compact design, you can even carry it around in your jacket pocket or purse/chest bag. The Omars Mini Pro is similarly compact, but doesn’t offer as much power. Even cheaper, but with less power and no power delivery, is a model from POWERADD. Which powerbank do you use?To the gadget
