i ordered another one and discovered 5000mah samsung batteries are 26% off as well
21700 Samsung INR2170050E 5000mAh High Discharge Flat Top [illumn.com]

I was just going to post on one of those endless anker deals about how much better one of these was and when I went to the link I found the price is lower than ever.

This device is the leatherman of powerbank/charger devices!

It has a magnetic door which accepts 18650 protected/unprotected and 20700/21700 unprotected batteries and can charge them from any kind of usb charger, PD or QC. It charges each cell individually to balance them. It is also a power bank which allows you to use 1 or 2 (2 required for pd or qc charging) cells to act as a power bank. And it is a 2 port power bank with 1 usb A output and 1 usb C input/output. You can charge two devices at once.

While charging the lion cells you can cycle the display to show overall charging and individual cell charging. It accepts PD 3 or QC 3 input and charges at up to 12v 1.8a

while using it as a power bank you will see the charge percent, as well as voltage and amperage.

the exterior is softtouch, the magnetic door is so trick.

it has a low power mode to charge headphones and other devices that terminate below 50mah

Here is a video, note this video is for the preproduction version that didn't have PD all of released in stored versions have PD 3

Xtar the brand is good. I use their other chargers. The plus is they added the PD/QC3 circuit for fast charging/discharge.

This look a lot more practical that having a power bank and a separate device for charging batteries. Plus, this way I could pick the specific batteries and know with confidence the real capacity.

Can anyone comment on how strong the magnet are? Is the cover going to come loose?

It holds well in normal use. In the video review he has 18650s and drops it and the cover comes off. But I've never had that happen with 21700s in mine. It's actually kinda fun letting the cover snap into place with the magnets

That one is for the PB2, the OP is for the PB2S. The "S" model includes PD and QC 3.

Having removable 18650s in a power bank is awesome. The built in voltage and amperage display makes it a killer power bank.

Id love to see a model that supports the 30w range, even if it makes it a bit bulkier.

Anyway, in for 1 to play with.
