      That hasn't been true for years as power banks can be sent through Auspost easily if compliant and it so happens Amazon AU are. Last deal had ~1000 send out without issue. Besides why don't we hear about it in the dozens of other power bank deals?

      The situation regarding travel with airlines through airports has also been covered. The actual limit without permission is ~26,800mAh and not 20,000mAh as you say :)

      •  

        "If compliant" - Most power bank deals are for 20Ah or less and so aren't affected.

        https://www.master-instruments.com.au/files/product_warranty...

        To make sure that your item is safe to send you must:
        β€’ Check that the amount of lithium in the battery is not more than the permitted amount. This is 100 Watt-Hour/lithium ion batteries.

        At 5V that's a limit of 20Ah.

        •  

          The 100Wh restriction applies to lithium ion batteries while the power bank in this deal is lithium polymer which is a lot safer. Amazon and Auspost have allowed these to be sent with no difficulty as they loosened the restrictions around November 2016-17.

          At 5V yes, but power banks are not rated at that voltage. Usually 3.6 or 3.7v.

          •  

            @Clear: I would be very interested to see evidence that LiPo is safer than LiIon. I would have thought it was the other way around. LiPo can generally supply way more instantaneous current than LiIon. I am not saying you are wrong (haven't researched it myself).

    Will this charge a Surface Pro?

    • +4 votes

      Unfortunately for the Surface Pro it seems you need a minimum of 45W (15V/3A) to charge.

  •  

    Samsung AFC (S9/10 are not compatible)

    I've seen this stated before but never thought to ask, does this mean the S9/10 won't fast charge at all? Even if it doesn't fast charge via Samsung AFC, the phones also support fast charge via USB-PD and QC 2.0 which this power bank does, so would have thought that shouldn't be an issue.

    • +2 votes

      Samsung changed their implementation of AFC (QC 2.0) in S9 and S10 which unfortunately is not compatible with the chip being used in the power bank. As for USB-PD that's a good question that I'll need to confirm with Romoss. Unfortunately I don't have a Samsung :/

      •  

        Interesting…my S9+ intermittently charges when using Romoss 20kmAh powerbank and also the RavPower 26.8kmAh. I have to press the powerbank button to restart the charging and then it stops after about a minute. But when I use Xiaomi's 10kmAh 2C powerbank it fast charges as normal. Could the chip be the reason why this is happening? I am using the BlitzWolf BW-TC14 3A cable

        • +1 vote

          That definitely sounds like the chip. There are dozens and dozens of different chips out there that do QC, USB-PD etc, but when manufacturers decide to change how they've implemented the charging standards some chips unfortunately become incompatible.

          Future Romoss power banks won't have this issue thankfully.

      I've got a Note 9 and this charger, can confirm it won't fast charge. Haven't tried with USB PD as of yet, but the normal plugs don't work

  •  

    Hi, will this charge an apple MacBook? Thanks

    •  

      You'll have to be more specific on model/size/year.

    • +3 votes

      Yes it will (depending on the model) but only at 18W which will be slower than their normal chargers that are normally 30W, 45W, 60W etc.

    Noob question:
    So I just purchased a Pixel 3a - does this mean I need a new Powerbank?

    Currently rocking the 10000mAh Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 2S…

    Thanks

    •  

      You can use a USB to USB C cable and use your current powerbank with no issue. It just won't charge it at its maximum rate. If you get a powerbank with 18W power delivery (off the top of my head) that should charge it at max.

      •  

        Which doesn't matter as much because the Pixel PD fast charging only matters in the first 30% of the battery. After that it throttle charging down to protect the battery. Any 5V 2.4A USB is more than enough for Pixels. Just don't use 5V 1A one.

        Regardless, I still have 18W PD power banks, wall charger and car chargers for my Pixel 2 because reasons.

  •  

    Assuming it's legit, this can't be taken on a plane as it's over 100wh…?

    • +1 vote

      I covered that in the post and the answer is yes with permission. If it was over 160Wh then that would be a no and has to be sent via freight.

      • +1 vote

        Anyone had experience getting "permission"? Would be limited to two with permission still from memory, though should be more than enough for anyone lol

        • +1 vote

          It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission ;)

        •  

          It’s usually a form you have to fill out at the special help desk or whatever and then show the security checkpoint the completed form. It’s just a little bit but enough to have me not be willing to get a >100Wh battery bank.

      •  

        How difficult is it typically to get that permission?

        •  

          Been covered by people here in the deal already. Apparently very easy and someone has approval for the whole year now.

    • +4 votes

      In my recent experience with 4 different airlines (domestic and O/S) they have been easy to deal with in terms of the approval process for these devices if they are < 160. You send an email to a specific address (can be found on their websites) and within 24 hours they get back to you -> except for weekends.

      Whilst I had the approval email on my phone to show the security dudes i also printed off a copy of the approval email to show them. In addition to that i used my dymo to put the watt hour calculation on the back of my chargers - they were all 158Wh. watt-hours = milliamp-hours Γ— volts / 1000. For example, if you have a 300mAh battery rated at 5V, the power is 300mAh * 5V / 1000 = 1.5Wh.

      My only advice is to allow a few minutes at the security check point in case the person is a newbie and they need to call a supervisor. Seriously no more than 2 or 3 mins.

        Cheers, I fly international a lot and always trying to keep security times to a minimum lol

    If I was to have this sitting in my car console for a fair amount of time & using it monthly or "for a rainy day" will its life degrade from sitting around etc, any other factors than heat?

    • +2 votes

      Generally with lithium batteries you don't want them to reach 0%, however these will hold their charge for a long time as I use my 30000mAh for exactly that.

  •  

    Is there a personal max Wh total allowed on flights? Like can i buy this 30000mAh and bring my other 20000mAh and 10000mAh banks?

    • +2 votes

      Qantas allows each passenger to carry 20 batteries/power banks.

      Only two over 100Wh and the rest <100Wh.

  •  

    Just curious, has anyone ever emailed qantas for approval and if so, how long do they take? Do you have to get approval for each flight or is it a one off approval? Any info would be appreciated! Thanks πŸ™
    πŸ’

    • +2 votes

      I am normally pretty organised and have these approvals sorted well in advance. Last time i forgot and I shot off a request the morning of our flight. I found Qantas to be super helpful and they got back to me within hours. Very impressed.

      The international airlines took a little longer but i assume that this was due to time zones.

      Just to cover myself i actually list each of my flight details for that airline in the one email. They basically respond with "Approved" and so it covers all of them.

    Designed with the purpose of environment protection, CABLE IS NOT INCLUDED.

    Presumably the environmental protection occurs through not being able to use the fossil fuel powered energy grid to charge it?

  •  

    When will the promotion to finish? Thanks

  •  

    From the Amazon listing:
    Rapid Recharge 3-Input: It only takes 11 hours to fully recharge the 30,000mAh power bank with a 18W wall charger. Featuring 3-input: Micro-USB, l i g h t n i n g and Type-C provides high convenience of recharging this power bank with any of these 3 widely used cables. (Note: 18W wall charger is NOT included.)

    What charger is included and how long does it take to fully recharge this powerbank with it?
    Do you also have a deal on the wall charger mentioned?

    How does it compare to the similar priced Xiaomis?

    •  

      I'd like to know the answer to this too. Obviously it's not 45W, so can't charge most laptops unlike the Xiaomi 3 20Ah, but it has more charge in it… curious about build quality compared to Xiaomi too, favourable or unfavourable.

  •  

    Note: Watt hours (Wh) are determined by multiplying the voltage (V) by the amp hours (Ah). ie. 12V x 5Ah = 60Wh

    took from qantas website

    this is educational

    •  

      How do you know what the voltage is? Is it dependant on the device being charged?

      •  

        He was just showing the Qantas example. Actual conversion for this power bank is 3.7V x 30Ah = 111Wh

  •  

    how long does it take to reach Sydney? Need it by next wednesday….

  •  

    Just a FYI for those interested. I emailed qantas to see how much of a hassle it would be to get approval. They responded very quickly and I now have approval for the whole of 2019 on both qantas and Jetstar. I just need to buy one now. πŸ€ͺ

  •  

    Clear, I recently picked up a video light with the handy option for powering through a USB-A powerbank.
    Would this the best bang (mAh) for buck powerbank you currently have or would you have something simpler with even higher mAh? I don't need all the extra ports.

    •  

      This is the best bang for your buck as there isn't anything else bigger from Romoss.

  •  

    Thanks…OP Clear…mine is on its way :)

  •  

    Good price. I bought 2 20,000mAh packs a few weeks ago when they were $28 a piece. Handy to know, too, is that while using a USBC to USBC cable (one that came with my partners Pixel 3 XL) I am able to fast charge my Note 9 (25% to full is reading 56 minutes). That's ONLY using the USBC PD output though.

  •  

    It's over 9000

    Thanks OP. I've ordered one. Excited about having so much capacity.

      Add to cart and check out, it will apply free delivery since > $49, on the last page before you place the order, enter the coupon code, it reduces the item price but keeps the free delivery option

    Hello OP. Please let me know when this deal pops up again. The Romoss OM10 looks cute. I would like to have that one. Pity this model is not available here in AUS (https://www.amazon.com/ROMOSS-20000mAh-Portable-Compatible-N...). This one looks awesome.
