    Sorry, I'm not really sure.. The one I got was the thin one with a single charging port. They sell the silver one for P650 and the black one for P660.

    Aukey and Tronsmart have a power bank for the MBA. Just search their FB page.

    How do you plug a MacBook into those powerbanks? It doesn’t appear to have a 2-prong outlet slot

    Has anyone tried powerbanks with Qi wireless charging? How is efficiency and compatibility with iPhones? Care to share some brands? Thanks.

    No, as it’s only a 15w charger. The 13” MacBook Pro needs 60w.

    I was walking around Market Market and was pleasantly surprised to see an Aukey booth in the second or third floor above the central activity area. Reasonable selection, not too expensive.

    I picked up a slim 10,000 mah powerbank with 18w USB C from them.

    Stopped using a powerbank after news about them exploding while charging creeped us out. But i also noticed the abundance now of charging stations in malls and airports, and even Grab cars allow charging using their adapters.

    A power bank tip is to buy one that is twice the capacity that you’ll need on a daly basis and charge it up to 50-60% capacity only. That should make the cells last a lot longer than keeping it fully charged all the time.

    You can still fully charge it if you’re anticipating a very busy day ahead or when traveling abroad. Just don’t keep it charged up at full capacity when you’re not going to need it. LiIon and LiPol batteries tends to degrade faster when left fully charged or depleted for a long time.

    I used to have a Romoss Polymos 10 Air (10,000 mAh). It recently died and I am now looking at the Sense 6 Plus (20,000 mAH) as a replacement and keep it charged at a little over half capacity... no more than 75%.

    ^ Be also wary of airline policy on powerbanks:

    This is from EVA Air:
    "With the Approval of the Airlines : Maximum two 100Wh-160Wh spare lithium-ion batteries (including Portable Battery Supply Device and Power Bank) per person may be carried in a carry-on baggage on board. Any lithium-ion battery that is over 160Wh is prohibited aboard the plane. "

    A reminder from the RAVPower website:

    ^ Agree, and it goes without saying.

    Although, a 30,000mAh power bank is exactly 150Wh. Having two of those bulky bricks in your carry-on (about 1.4 kg combined) is probably the most people can tolerate.
