What dictates the size of power banks?
The size of a power bank is determined by how much power it can store. This is measured in milliampere-hours (mAh) or watt-hours (Wh). The higher the capacity of a power bank, the more power it can store and the larger it will be. Think of it like a water bottle – the bigger the bottle, the more water it can hold. Similarly, the bigger the power bank, the more power it can hold.
However, it’s important to note that the size of a power bank doesn’t always correspond directly to its capacity. Some power banks are designed to be slim and lightweight, while others are bulkier but have more features like multiple ports or fast charging capabilities. So, thinner power banks may come with a smaller capacity and less features in favor of high-portability and keeping the overall weight minimum.
Now that we have established the basic, I can start showing you some of the slimmest power banks that you can get today.
