Monocrom, I put that LFP deal here because it doesn't directly apply to the Generator thread,
it could really go in either.

it's energy storage_____>

I hear what you're saying. Just being honest, I see Powerbanks as being very different from Generators and Power-Stations. Biggest reasons why is capacity and portability. Practically everyone owns a Powerbank. But a significantly smaller percentage of folks own Power-Stations. And, an even smaller percentage of those own Generators.

Thursday I used my "Type S" brand Li Ion jump starter / power bank, to start my car. It has a 4.6L engine in it.

The timer switch for my electric rear windshield defroster failed to turn off, and drained my battery down to 3.8 volts.
The power pack worked flawlessly as it is supposed to. I've had it for a few years, and have used it only a few times. It holds its charge very well. I am pleased with it.

Those things are gold. The older model of this one from Harbor Freight has been wonderful. Makes a great gift. Good to pick up when they throw that 25% off coupon around. Doubles as a 38,000 mAh bank, too.

Total including tax came to about $36 for me. Most of the reviews were free product people. Discussions of possibly not actual advertised amp/hours but someone did report it put out 65W into a laptop. (Says it is capable of 130W!)

I'm good on electrical storage capacity and usually prefer multi-purpose for small power banks but this is a good price for sure. Thanks orbital!

I really want an empty powerbank that I can put my spare cells in. Seems like a case would be much cheaper and I already have lots of spare 18650's sitting around.

Anyone seen something like that?
Check Temu, Wish, AliExpress or the like. They all have various type of housings, and "build your own" type kits to put batteries of your choosing into.

Got it! $35.99

Good score, truly a flash sale.

It does up to 28V with the PD out, that's what givers you the 140W.
(PD will only give the voltage your equipment asks for, so 5V up to 28V)
