Amazon has the GETIHU USB C Portable Charger, 10000mAh PD/QC3.0 Power Bank, 18W on sale for $12.99

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CZZXXMW

I had a couple cheap Chinese brand PBs in my cart to track the prices because I need a backup. I don't know anything about the company or quality of the pack but picked one up as a cheap 18W PD power bank to throw in my backpack. Comes with a carrying case and 2 cords per the pictures. Anyone have any experience with GETIHU PBs? Waiting for the "get an Anker instead" messages in 3...2...1...

Received mine and I'm happy with it at the price point. The cords are nice as mentioned by @TalentedDesk7409. In addition to the USB-C to USB-C and USB-A to microUSB cords, it came with a carry case and a little USB booklight/flashlight that has a bendable neck ("free gift"). The PB is rubberized which is a plus since my current all aluminum PB has slipped out of my hands or off a table a bunch of times.

There is a little light bleed from the LED power indicator on the side where the top of the case meets the bottom of the case, but it isn't a big deal for me.

Fast charges my older LG G7 which I'm happy about. I don't have an 18w wall charger to test top-up speed of the unit. It came with all 4 led indicators lit up so haven't needed to charge it yet. Hoping the 3 year warranty is legit but no real idea if they'll even be around in 3 years with how quick these companies tend to disappear.

Edit: also, the "power button" is pretty finicky to turn off the unit. I found that I have to hit it at the top of the button, not the middle, for it to turn off the LEDs. powering on isn't an issue because the unit starts charging as soon as you plug in a device.

Kinda dumb question but what's the Wh on this? Apparently there's a max for airplane carryons of 100Wh per battery. Problem is the Wh depends on the voltage, but what the hell voltage do I use? USB output is 5V however Ravpower uses 3.7V (which increases the Wh).

Not sure, but I've taken my other 10000mAh PBs on hundreds of flights. I've only heard of people concerned with the large 30000mAh banks like the one posted last week.

Just got the battery and super impressed with the quality of cables. Got 2 more.
The fast charge light on the battery is fake. I plugged in a phone that was already 100% charged and the light stayed ON when connected. So it is just a fake light that goes on with any charge not necessarily high current in fast charge

I was wondering if it has passthrough charging (charging the phone while being charged through another port), but I couldn't find the relevant info in the listing or the top reviews.

I find passthrough charging very useful during travel to minimize the number of chargers I have to bring.

Thank you.

Found someone asking the same thing, they got a non-confident "No".

And another person got a "Yes" on pass through charging.

if the 3 years warranty is valid then this is a good deal compared to the 12 months or 18 months one from other reputable brands.
