Capacity

When it comes to capacity, it should be always more and more. The more the capacity, the more it is useful. The capacity for Power Banks and our smart phone’s battery is measured in mAh – Milli Ampere Hour. Suppose if your phone’s capacity is 2500mAh and the power bank you’re going to buy has a capacity of charging 2,500mAh. And when you try to charge your phone with this capacity of power bank, you’ll wonder why its not giving full output as mentioned in its capacity. This is because of the circuit resistance and voltage conversion. You will get nearly 2,000mAh usable capacity of power bank. In a simple word, it’s called as efficiency, Google about it you’ll know more :). So think and choose wisely according to your phone’s capacity and the real output of power bank.
