    Micro usb. Ughhhhhh

    •  

      why the snobbery against micro usb?

      Have you disposed of all of your micro USB devices, and therefore the cables?

        Doesn't matter what deal it is, people always like to complain

      •  

        It means if you have a USB C phone/device you have to carry two cables when travelling. The only thing left in my house with micro USB is my Mx Anywhere mouse and that just shat itself anyway.

        •  

          I presume you're only charging one device at a time? If you're charging two devices, then you're going to need two cables anyway. If you're only going to charge one device, just bring the cable for that device and leave the other at home. Most phones should last you the day on one full charge already.

          If you want to bring only one cable but charge multiple devices just not at the same time, get a magnetic cable and multiple tips. One cable for all your needs (including charging the power bank).

          Anyone who uses an iPhone or iPad is going to face the same complaints as you, because they have one extra type of cable (Lightning). You don't hear them complaining that power banks don't have Lightning on them.

          I don't really get what the problem is. The micro USB is only to charge the battery, not your devices. If you have only type C devices, you don't need to bring the micro USB cable. You're not going to charge the power bank on the go are you? You charge that at home fully, and leave the cable at home.

          @lostn: A single cable would be nice, but also pointless if you're charging both your phone and power-bank overnight from a single usb powerport. =)

        •  

          @Lukian: is that what you normally do?

          I never do that. I never coincidentally find myself in a situation where both are flat at the same time.

          But in any case, you'd still need multiple cables which is what tromboc doesn't like.

        •  

          @lostn: You've never traveled (internationally) for more than the life of your powerbank?

        •  

          @Lukian: I have, but I don't have a device needing to be charged the whole time. I sleep and stuff. Also, some planes have USB charging built in.

          I mean, if you're on a plane and you have an outlet that can charge your power bank, why not just charge your device directly with it? Why do you need to use the power bank at all? Unless you brought a flat power bank onto the plane with you, which isn't what I do. I come prepared.

          My power bank getting drained is only a possibility when I'm in a place where there's no way to charge, e.g. the wilderness. But then that's moot. If you don't have a place to charge your power bank, you don't need that second cable anyway.

    These guys are $15 cheaper if you live near Chatswood, NSW - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2018-Xiaomi-Powerbank-20000-mAh-...

    Any 20000mAh powerbanks lighter/better than the Xiaomi 2C?

    Does the 2C support pass-through charging?

    •  

      I'm seeing 35.91. How is that $15 cheaper?

      •  

        From the listing description:

        Guys, Save $15 if you pick up from our shop at: Shop 10A, 427-441 Victoria Ave, Chatswood NSW 2067 - Open 7 days from 11 AM to 9 PM, Shop name: Australia Aisa-Sydney

        Note it doesn't say Genuine or Original anywhere, but at least you have a retailer to return to! ;)

        •  

          that's interesting. That means they'd normally charge $15 for shipping.

        •  

          @lostn: Don't forget the ridiculous percentages in ebay+paypal fees that sellers cop.

        •  

          @Lukian: That's the cost of being able to advertise to a billion people.

          If you don't want to pay those fees, create your own web store and see how well your stuff sells in comparison.

          Whatever ebay charges in fees, I'm pretty sure it's not 41%.
