What is a Power Bank?    A power bank is an external charger for your phone or other electronic device [eg: ipad]

How Do You Charge The Power Bank?   The power bank is charged via your phone charger or your laptop [usb port]

What Size Is The Power Bank?   The power bank is measured in mAh which is milli Ampere Hour

What is milli Ampere Hour?   Both measures are commonly used to describe the energy charge that a battery will hold and how long a device will run before the battery needs recharging. It is important because it’s the easiest way to distinguish the strength or capacity of a battery. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last.
