I presume this is the largest PowerBank I can buy:

 

https://www.airnewzealand.co.nz/dangerous-goods

 

"... not exceeding 12 Volt and 100 Watt hour (Wh) power rating.." and this is the same worldwide? I want to fly with it.

 

and the 26800 is Capacity :26800 mAh / 96.48 Wh

 

https://www.anker.com/products/A1374011

 

Where can I get one in NZ if possible?

Official Anker store on ebay. You're buying direct and won't find it cheaper. I doubt you'll find it in NZ for a good price.

 

My 10AH battery is kinda heavy. That big Anker is 600g. Think of that in terms of carrying around half a cheese block with you.

Yes I've read that a few times in the past! Do you have an Affiliate link sbiddle?

 

 

 

Is 100Wh the max across all airlines? 

 

 

 

https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/baggage/restricted-items.jsp  100Wh

 

Emirates (can't find)

The 100Wh limit seems to exist across most airlines from what I can tell - but many can provide an exemption. Such batteries would normally be for things like camera gear rather than a portable USB battery pack.

From a friends experience with powerbanks, the difference between QC2.0 and QC3.0 is very minimal. not like going from a 5v charger to QC2.0. They always seem to quote the speed at the very low end of charge state, which they both get you out of pretty quickly.

I believe the 100Wh is an FAA limitation that airlines have adopted.

It's actualy an IATA rule that's been pretty much adopted by the entire industry incl the FAA.

 

Most airlines will still allow 2x batteries between 100Wh and 163Wh but they have to be notified in advance and have to accept these. Taking batteries above 163Wh requires advance notice and batteries need to be transported in accordance with IATA dangerous goods policies.

I emailed Anker and they changed the Ebay Listing so people outside the US could actually buy it.

 

Ordered and on the way....

I was looking on Anker's official site and notice that if I use Youshop, I can purchase for $59.99 USD (after $10 welcome promo code)

Then going by dimensions & weight, it will cost $16 or $22 from Youshop.

Will this work? There seems quite a price difference using Amazon or the above Ebay link.

Depends on what they decide it is. youshop is so variable with things with batteries and how they are feeling and what rulechanges they may have put thru and never told you.

 

Also places are still classifying powerbanks incorrectly as batteries seperated from devices, not as devices with an inbuilt battery because they are dumb. Very different requirements for freight on the 2 classes of devices. I have got a couple thru by calling them flashlights. Which they are since they have a light on them. That wasnt youshop tho so they may not be so flexible.

They will be non commital in their answer and just point you to the list on the website.

 

shipito are cool with batteries within the limits, you just have to tick the box and choose the type so they put the right sticker on the box, and then use fedex or sometimes dhl.
