I saw this a few months ago and meant to post it - it's a great tech review of an Anker USB battery pack and how USB battery packs work. (I actually have this very same model)

So my AUkey 30,000mAh powerbank turned up today from Ali Express. I'm probably more excited about this turning up than I should be tbh, but maybe that's because I wasn't sure if it was going to turn up or not. Ordered 29th Sep and arrived today, so pretty much a month to get here. 

 

Has quite a heft to it and feels very solidly built. Will give it a charge tonight and have a play with it tomorrow.

 

Powerbank link if you're interested

Apart from the issue of shipping they're actually cheaper on Amazon. Not everything is a bargain on Aliexpress!

Interesting you should say that. I paid $41.88 and free shipping from Aliexpress

 

 

whereas the same thing from Amazon is $44.99 not including shipping costs and that's only if Youshop accept it.
