What is mAh?

The difference between powerbanks.

Each power bank thus has its own capacity, which reflects how often your electrical devices can be charged with your power bank. Therefore, a power bank with more capacity (mAh) can charge your devices more often compared to a power bank with less capacity. Some electrical devices consume more power and therefore also need a higher capacity charger. For example, a 40,000 mAh powerbank is suitable for charging your Macbook or Laptop where other powerbanks cannot.

How many times can I charge my phone with a power bank?

The number of times you can charge your smartphone, tablet or laptop with a power bank depends on the capacity of the battery. You can simply calculate how often your devices can be charged with a power bank when you divide the capacity of the power bank by the capacity of your electrical device. For example: Capacity smartphone is 4000 mAh and of the power bank 12,000 mAh. Then you can divide 12,000 mAh by 4,000 mAh and the answer is three times.
