Tech has come on a fair bit since I posted this that's for sure used to think those lidl 5000mah ish power banks were the dogs danglies but tech moves on the Anker one of a similar physical size is 20,000mah :shock:
If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

It seems there's always an optimum price & performance point on any tech. 20,000mAh seems to be it right now, but I do like smaller sizes for pocket carry.

The Anker one is smaller than my mobile (width and height) and a touch thicker but not by much..

I've got one of the older Anker units - it's chunkier by far

I certainly see no need to get a different one. I use their earbuds too. I like the look of their new power station too.
