Barkuti, why do you have to be such a butt-wipe? And please stop cursing in violation of forum rules! OP has been a member here for over a year. Not everyone spews crap prolifically like you do. This item with the OP’s discount code is $10. Not a bad deal at all especially if you do not have the time or inclination to do a custom build. Please stop harassing new members. Some of them are NOT spammers!

Thanks for the heads up, for $9.99 this is a great deal.

Barkuti: I’m not sure how can you build a 10,050mAh powerbank with less than $10? please enlighten me. The fact that they don’t specify which exact cell is being used doesn’t mean the rated capacity is BS, it says LG/Panasonic so I’m pretty sure it uses LG 3,350mAh F1 like most 10,050mAh power bank does, which are way superior to your mentioned (old tech) samsung 26F. Ravpower is a well known brand and their capacity rating has been tested to be true in my 3 portable chargers of this brand.

[Getting philosophically enlightened]

Oooh! Yes! Love & light to all that is! Smile

 

Mmm, as I previously mentioned, it's bad when you don't have a partner to share that bottle of wine with…

I also didn't saw your actual price was $10, big difference!

Kudos to RAVPower! Smile

Thanks, I needed my rudeness meter to raise a bit, 3/10 now! Big Smile

 

Cheers Party

I don’t know if mods give timeouts for rude behavior, but if they did your baseless attack was super rude. Certainly doesn’t reflect well on the community, and you know the saying one bad apple spoils the bunch.

I’ve got a thick skin, but even I’m hesitant to want to participate anymore, despite lots of great information and people here.

I, for one, appreciate any member who makes a good faith, earnest attempt to save us BLFers some precious cash. If better deals are to be found elsewhere, just go find them and offer them up on BLF. No need to deride deals or finders.

Ordered two as gifts for Sons..

Thanks much, Izombie!

+1 Seems like a great deal to me, although I haven’t checked out the shipping charges yet.

Don't worry Izombie, I am perfectly aware that was rude.

However, Spain is different, and you really don't have a good idea how much…

Have you seen any of the Torrente movies? Try them out… As a more mature person now, I can understand how detrimental our culturally extreme mockery can be. As kids, this kind of behaviour can have awful consecuences.

It's that bad, really. The promedium level of disrespect of a typical spanish citizen against the (opposing) politician class is just… insane.

 

Thanks, sorry and cheers Party

Any quick thoughts, capacity check or reviews yet? I’m too broke to jump on this deal, unless it’s to steal the batteries from it. I have the xiaomi 10000 3-cell already.

Shipping is free w Amazon prime, or free with $49 other Amazon sold product. You can get 4x and it will trigger free shipping, because the discount comes after the shipping calculation.

I tested 3 ravpower portable chargers in the past and they were all in the 80-85% efficiency range, which is pretty decent and on par with other 18650 based powerbanks.

But back then powerbanks with 2,600mah batteries were more efficient because modern cells rely on storing a large portion of that capacity in the lower voltages down to 2.5V, and that means higher current draw requiered to boost it up to 5V output.

I have the 3-cell xiaomi 10000mah, how would this compare?

TBH! If I had to wildly guess, I’d say my 10000 mah, puts about 3-6000 into the phone.

They should perform very similar, and yeah 10,000mah is about 6,000 on the output side:

10Ah x 3.7V = 37Wh

37Wh x 0.85 = 31Wh = 6,200mAh @ 5V

As the energy goes into the phone it has losses again... e.g. a 12Wh battery usually requieres 15-17Wh to fully charge.
