In general 10,000 mAh is a popular standard for most people buying a power bank. But it’s reported that monthly sales of 20,000 mAh portable charger on a shopping website is higher than that of 10,000 mAh. It seems that larger capacity power bank could give users more "security". In fact, most of the time you don't need a huge power bank, and the bigger is not the better.
Why Do We Need a Slim Power Bank?
First of all, in terms of size and weight, a power bank of over 10,000 mAh is very large and very visible in your hand, in addition, it’s heavier. All in all it's not a good experience to have a large and heavy power bank on the road, even though it gives you a good sense of security.
Secondly, from the perspective of actual use, if you have a mobile phone with a large battery capacity of 5000 mAh, you can basically meet the entertainment needs of the eight-hour long journey. Nowadays ordinary mobile phones now have batteries of more than 3,000 mAh. That is to say, we only need a power bank which is about 2,000 mAh to guarantee the cell phone not running out of power.
Finally, as to pursue low-carbon life, it is of positive significance for everyone to choose a power bank with appropriate capacity. A power bank with too large capacity, the electricity in it is always inexhaustible, and the battery is rarely fully charged and discharged. For the utilization rate of the battery, it’s a kind of waste. While a power bank with appropriate capacity is more thoroughly utilized. The problem of environmental pollution caused by battery is still serious and everyone is responsible for environmental protection. If we all choose super-capacity battery, it will only waste resources.

Choosing a power bank that has a smaller capacity has many advantages. It is smaller, weighs less and is more portable. Some slim power banks are no bigger than a normal battery, which are convenient to carry in your pocket or in your hand. Some customers even think it's better to buy two smaller ones than a larger one since they are extremely portable.
