Power Banks/Mobile Chargers – How Much mAh Do I Need?

What is mAh? In essence, mAh is an abbreviation for ‘milliamp hour,’ and it signifies the battery capacity of portable devices for example mobile phones or a power bank – it’s that simple!

The higher the mAh rating, the longer your power bank will last when in use. Additionally, you’ll notice a strong correlation between mAh and price; lower mAh ratings generally result in lower prices, and vice versa. Power banks in general, including Promotional power banks, typically range from around 1,000mAh to 10,000mAh. The key question is: How much mAh do you actually need?

Things to Consider with mAh

  1. First, figure out how much power your devices need by checking their mAh values. Our handy table below can help you find this info for some common devices.

  2. Once you know your device’s mAh and have your power bank’s mAh (let’s say 8,000 mAh), you can work out how many times you can charge your device. For example, with a 8,000 mAh power bank and a device with 1,000 mAh, you’ll get about eight full charges.

  3. Now, think about how you or tyour planned user will use it. How much are you willing to spend on a power bank, and how much power (mAh) do you or they really need?

  4. Consider the purpose of your power bank – whether you’re selling, exchanging, or thinking of your next company giveaways. This will help you decide the right size and price to get the job done.

Does a higher mAh mean a faster charging rate?

It’s a common misconception that a higher mAh means faster device charging, but that’s not true at all. The speed of charging actually depends on the amp value.

For instance, a power bank with 3.0 amps (A) will charge your device three times faster than one with just 1.0 amp.

For example, if a power bank has a high 10,000mAh capacity but only offers 1.0A output, a device with a smaller capacity of 4,000mAh that has a 5.0A output, will charge your device faster. It’s simple: the higher the amp value, the quicker your device charges.

Keep in mind, you might encounter chargers with an amp value lower than 1, which could be listed as 0.8A or 800mA. “mA” stands for milliamps, and it takes 1000 milliamps to equal 1 amp.
