If anyone’s interested, I did a charge comparison against a wall charger and another power bank.

@UserM4 thanks!

The PB2S is already out of stock on Aliexpress. The owner told me the red ones should be available next week, the black ones will be delayed.

Does someone have first impressions of the magnetic latch? Are the magnets strong enough to hold it securely in place even when tossed in a backpack?

Yeah, you need to actually pry into the crease between door and body to open it. It’s not likely to just pop open on its own.

Illumn has been advertising QC 3.0 AND PD charging, but the official specs don’t mention a 12v output. Judging from the OP, I suppose it doesn’t actually support PD?

The cons are high parasitic drain, inaccurate display, batteries must be able to handle 2A charging

The Rofis protected 26650 (69.6mm) fits, butt the Rofis protected 21700 (75mm) does not.

Yep, that’s how I charged my Cometa in a pinch.

 

Using the scientific miracle of a small wad of Al foil, I was wanting to charge a 14500 yesterday, too, but stopped when I saw it was charging at close to 2A. Didn’t want to cook it. Laptop port, too, so was hoping it’d be limited to 500mA.

So how does it work on smaller devices or did they screw the pouch again

I tested it in my review with 0.1A and it worked just fine.

Yes, the low current mode, accessed by holding the side switch, will charge my MP3 player and bluetooth headphones. The display blinks to indicate you are in low current mode.
