Thought this the best forum section.
Mods please move if appropriate.

My trusty power bank gave out on its final ask over holiday. I was charging for the flights home and found the USB cable basically fused to the power bank.
Not sure if a dodgy cable or bank.

Now. I need a new one.
I want PD. So it can charge my surface book. But wattage doesn't need to be high.
I want max capacity.
A percentage battery remaining would be more useful than 4 lights. It's always the last light that's tricky to gauge.


Suggestions?

Lidl currently selling an absolute steal of a powerbank. 20,000mah, PD / USBC. For £20.

They're often kept behind the counter / in the stock room - so you might have to ask. I managed to pick one up for my son.

I've had a few Lidl powerbanks. All been terrific quality with genuine capacity - much better than anything I've bought from any auction / online market place kind of site.

Not what you are looking for (although it does have a percentage indicator)


I'm just shocked such things even existed and had to share it with someone :D

Energizer PPS240 provides 230.4Wh (72,000mAh) battery capacity with 1 x 150W AC outlet, 2 x DC outputs, 1 x USB-C PD and 2 x USB-A outputs – one port support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging compatible Android phones 0-80% in 35 minutes. LifePO4 battery cell allows you to recharge up to 2000 times combined with MTTP technology optimising DC to DC charging that allows solar panels to recharge the battery efficiently off-the-grid.

Imagine trying to get on the plane with that! :D
