" ...  I ordered this for my Galaxy S10 plus phone and it is fast charging, light to carry, and charges my plus phone twice before needing to recharge. ... It didn't come with a charger, but I reached out to Anker and they recommended one for me that works well with the Power Delivery Port and I use the USB C to USB C cord that came with the power pack to charge the charger in 4 hours.  ...  "

" ...  On to the battery, simply put it works as expected. ... Recharging the PowerCore using the speed+ duo charger , from a fully depleted or nearly fully depleted, recharged to full in about 3 hours so the advertised 3.5 hr full recharge using the PD port is on point.  ...  "

comment
" ...  With only 10k mAh, I really wasn’t sure that this is what I need for when I go traveling, in which I do very frequently. ... However, I learned that this little charger actually has enough juice that I need. ... It’s the sacrifice of having less mAh , or capacity if you are unsure what that means, for a faster charge, in which is delivers!  ...  "

" ...  You'll need a USB C PD wall outlet if you want to charge this device in any sort of "reasonable" time. ... I use the Anker Anker 60W 5-Port Desktop Charger with 30W PD Port, have one at home and one at work. ... Anker makes great, quality products, including their best selling USB cables. ... For this reason, and for this purpose, buy a quality, USB-IF rated, USB C to C cable specifically for charging your Nintendo Switch. ... If you're only using this cable for charging, don't spend the extra money on a USB 3.0 cable. ... USB 2.0 vs 3.0/3.1/3.2 refer to transfer speeds for data only, and provide no advantage or benefit for power/charging. ... A USB 2.0 C to C cable for charging your devices will be the least expensive option while benefiting from that sweet Power Delivery charging speeds.  ...  "

" ...  I used it to charge my mom's Note 9 from 82% with the included USB-C to USB-C power delivery cable. ... Finally, the 10000mAh battery I was using is a TP-Link 10400 that has both a 2A USB-A out and 1A USB-A out.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I charged my Google Pixel, my Bowers and Wilkins headphones, and my Macbook (all through the USB C port) and it still had juice. ... Everything I own is going to USB C so I'm a huge fan. ... The only thing that would make this more perfect is if it had about 3 USB C ports on it, that would all work at the same time .  ...  "

comment
" ...  Only difference between those generations are the charging cable you’ll need. ... If you have the older iPad Pros, you’ll need to buy Apple’s Lightning to USB-C cable (or Anker’s, as they will have their own by the end of February, I believe). ... For iPhones, you will need the USB-C to lightning cable that I mentioned earlier for the iPad Pro 1st and 2nd generation.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I simply wrap the cable in the way it was wrapped in the packaging and slide it in the case on top of the battery bank, then just cinch the case closed so it doesn't fall out. ... Anker makes great, quality products, including their best selling USB cables. ... To save on costs, shorter cables (~3 feet) are typically cheaper than longer cables. ... If you're only using this cable for charging, don't spend the extra money on a USB 3.0 cable. ... It has tons of features for its price point, comes with a C to C cable and a carrying case.  ...  "
