you are better off getting a power bank with Li-Ion like Anker and Ravpower who use 8x LG F1L cells

on the Consumer lever we have very little oversight what is being sold / consumed just like any other industry weather food cars or power banks
as far as i can see there is NO combination of LiPo cells that = 26800 they are just copying a popular rating used by the REAL brands like Anker and Ravpower (btw to get to 26800mah you have 8x BRAND NAME LG F1L 3350mah 18650 cells together) and only the REAL brands use them
i have looked and there is no 26800 LiPo no 2x 13400 LiPo no 4x 6700 LiPo or 8x 3350 LiPo cells
they might be using some NO NAME 20000 or 2x 10000 that will IMO NEVER MEASURE UP to LG cells

you might as well get this NO NAME 26800mah for $16.95 [amazon.com] its Probably just as good or BAD as it also has LiPo cells
or this one for $15.99 [amazon.com]which have BOTH li-polymer (li-po) and li-ion
as a informed consumer i want the truth

"It supports PD 3.0 , PD 2.0, QC 3.0, QC 2.0,Huawei-FCP, Samsung -AFC, Apple 5V 2.4A, MTK-PE, BC1.2, and Samsung 5V 2.0A charging protocols"

Good on paper but I'd only trust it with lower cost devices like OP's is with his speaker. All power banks are perishable items. The price looks good for what it is cheap cells or no. Not every use justifies the high cost of Anker.

With all banks it is good to learn how to do a rough capacity test so you can ask for refund or replacement if it fails to measure up. This should deliver at least 50 Whr ( half the rated capacity ) initially anyway.

Do not know how good the 18 month warranty is or if you have to pay to send it back. They do not publish the warranty on their site. Many have bought o Omars on here. Not many complaints that I can recall.

Digital gauge is one thing to avoid. They are rarely accurate, encourage overcharging which has in some cases led to catastrophic failure.

I do not down vote deals simply because they do not meet my personal specifications. Too much of that on here by pp who have never tried the product, don't know what they think they know especially about chargers and are armchair experts.

Supports power delivery, all the quick charges, Apple, Huawei, and anything else you can think of, at the maximum capacity allowed by FAA, all for the low low price of $19.99.

Yeah. Bologna.

Yeah, that is odd. I wonder if they picked that number so that they can stay under the FAA max permitted energy of 100 Wh.

FWIW, I own an Omars 10,000 mAh li-po power bank and have been happy with it. I did a discharge capacity test using 1A current at 5V on it as well as on a comparable Anker 10,000 mAh li-po power bank. The Omars one actually had more capacity.

For what it's worth. I had a different OMARs power supply with an AC plug - purchased on amazon. The switch to turn the AC plug on and off got a bit weird after about 6 months. They replaced it quickly and easily - with a brand new unit. Power supply seemed to be well constructed (beyond the switch on the first battery, never had a problem with the second one) and worked great, until I left it at a hotel and never saw it again.

Anyone received theirs or at least got a shipping notification? I've got nothing, no communication, and Omars customer services is non-responsive.

There is a combination that does work: I think there should be 6x 21700 batteries with about 4500mah each.

You do have a very good point about the 26800mAh being for 8x Li-ion. I will test the charger when I get it to see if it is real anyway. I always do that, or open it. It could be 2x 13000mah or 3x 8800mah Li-Po batts in there. Those batteries exist. Let me know if you got one, and what your findings are.
