For thru-hikers who want to maximize trail time/minimize town time...what tips do you have?

I think the Anker Powercore II 10,000 is a near perfect thru-hiking battery. It charges my iPhone 7 about 3 full times and quick charges in about 4 hours. I’ve never had any durability issues with it, and 10k mAh feels like enough juice for just about any stretch between towns on a long-distance trail.

Fast charging powerbank [R]

9 months, 3 weeks agocbowns posted submission on Ultralight.
June 19, 2019

For this summer I'm looking for a powerbank to charge my phone and some other things like lights. As I'm on my way most of the time and don't have access to power outlets much, I need to charge as much in my powerbank(''s) as possible.

As most phones nowadays have a fast charging function, I was wondering if there are powerbanks with the same technology. I don't mean fast charging the phone from the powerbank (I've seen that already), but quick charging the powerbank from the power outlet.

Can someone recommend me a good small/light but Preferably 10000+ mAh powerbank what is able to be charged quickly.

Edit: I'm looking for a powerbank that supports quick charge on it's inputs, not necessarily as an output. so I can charge it at 18w or even 27w instead of the normal 10w (5v/2A)

9 months, 3 weeks agocbowns posted comment on Ultralight.
June 19, 2019

Close: the max input on that is 5V at 2A (10W total). The PowerCore II does QC 3.0 of you get a compatible brick, for 9V at 2A (18W in). (but it’s a half ounce heavier)

Is it better to get a solar cell powerbank or a regular powerbank with several charges? [R]

May 15, 2019

I like the idea of a solar powered powerbank, but I don't know how effective they are. I feel like you'd need to get a quite big and expensive one. Maybe I could get one with like 5 full charges for the same price? Any recommendations or advice?

10 months, 4 weeks agoreddilada posted comment on hiking.
May 15, 2019

Solar would be nice if you are going to be away for power for weeks. Less than that a battery pack the size of a deck of cards will do the trick. This Anker one gets a lot of mentions. I have an older one and very happy with it.

Garmin GPS handheld vs iPhone and Gaia? [R]

Pretty much what /u/r_syzygy said. I'll add that I have both the Garmin 64st and Gaia on my Android. Garmin stays home for the most part. If it is going to be raining I might take the Garmin. The interface on Gaia is better in every way. The desktop end of it is better as well.

For battery, put in airplane mode and carry a battery pack

You also get a million maps and overlays with Gaia. With the Garmin they are generally $100 a pop with DRM that requires you to plug your Garmin in to your computer to view (there are ways around this).

I'd recommend the premium version of Gaia so you get NatGeo maps, but standard will at least net you offline maps.

Best places to charge your smartphone/battery pack far away from home? [R]

I have an older version of this Anker Battery. Good stuff.

Keeping your phone on airplane mode will help significantly. GPS will still work.

If you're asking how to charge your backup battery than solar I guess, but honestly it'd be cheaper to just get a second backup battery.

GPS Recommendation [R]

1 year agoreddilada posted submission on WildernessBackpacking.
March 13, 2019

Hello again, about a week or two ago I posted about getting into backpacking. I see that th REI checklist recommends navigation such as a gps. My question is do I need a GPS like one of the Garmin handheld one or can I just get GAIA premium and download the map of the trail I'm tackling? Also, do I need to purchase additional map for the Garmin handheld gps?

1 year agoreddilada posted comment on WildernessBackpacking.
March 14, 2019

I'll second Gaia. Great app esp. with the premium service. Make sure you download the area you are going to. Couple with a portable battery and airplane mode and you'll be good for days.

I also have a Garmin 64 that I sometimes take if it going to be raining or there are conditions where I'd rather not have my phone out. It's much more durable than the phone, but otherwise less capable in most every way than a phone with Gaia. The base map that comes with it is good enough. To get more detailed regional maps it will cost you $100 a pop. They basically have a bit more topo info. They also have DRM so are a real hassle to use. You have to plug your receiver in to your PC if you want to look at the maps on the desktop Basecamp application, for example. There are ways to install free maps, but it is a bit fiddly.

If you are solo and going off grid, I'd really recommend getting a PLB. A Spot Gen3 is a cheaper option to buy and operate than the two-way communicating versions. If you dig around a bit on their site they have rental options.

[PSA] LG V20 quick charge time for Perfine 10,500 mAH battery [R]

1 year, 6 months agoheliumhiker posted submission on lgv20.
Sept. 26, 2018

For anyone curious on how long it takes to charge 10,500 mAH battery on LG V20 using Qualcomm Quickcharge 3.0

Charger used: Anker PowerPort+1 with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0

USB cable used: Anker Powerline+, 0.9 metre long (USB C cable designed specifically for fast charging)

LG V20 status during charging: Only wifi connected, data and everything else disabled, Sound on, vibration switched off

Battery % started: 6%Battery % ended: 100%

Using Ampere to take reading --> Charging reading: ranges from 1700 mA to 2400 mA,

Duration taken from 6% to 100% : 4 Hours 4 Min 05 Seconds

Note: ( 90% to 100% takes significantly more time because onboard battery protection, the last 1% is extremely to reach for same reason )

If I had switched off the LG V20 and charged, it would definitely be faster. Will be doing that test once i reach 0% again on my 10,500 mAH (not an easy task).

I doubt it would be incredibly faster :) 10k mah power bricks w/ quick charge input charge in about the same time.

Battery case or power bank? [R]

Hi all just wondering what you guys prefer and have found to work the best using either a battery case or a power bank? I have a power bank currently and was thinking about a battery case but reviews I've seen on them are sort of week!

Sept. 26, 2018

I think battery cases made sense when charging was so slow. But with quick charging, a battery bank like THIS or THIS can top things off pretty quickly and for less money than a battery case.

While it isn’t a USB-C - USB-C, I personally use this 10,000 one and it’s small enough to fit in a switch case ( depending on the brand, i use this techno skin case ) and it fits perfectly in the front-most small pocket. There is another version with two USB ports, though I don’t know the specs on it and I’m not sure if it has PowerIQ up to 18W like the one I own. The one issue with mine is that it doesn’t have pass through charging, which hasn’t been an issue with me thus far. Can more than double the switches battery life span and can charge it up while playing Breath of the Wild.

I recently bought a brand new Cellular iPad mini 4 with a 1GB data plan. Am going to try out foreflight for the first time, but have yet to use the iPad in flight. One thing I've noticed is when I'm just sitting around going through the app, the battery drains fast. If FF is not running, not is there some setting I've got turned the wrong way, or do I just have to deal with losing a percentage every minute?

Get an external battery pack. I have one of these that I'm very satisfied with: For 10,000 mAh it's tiny, it's about the size of a deck of cards.

Anker Powercore II 10000 mah - Review [R]

2 years, 1 month agoMarch 9, 2018

After looking for a battery bank for my SO and I, I think I have found the perfect one. The Anker Powercore II is a 10000mah battery, which has Quick Charge 3.0 on the input (very important if you wanna get out of towns asap).

I have also purchased the Aukey QC 3.0 Dual Ports, which supplies QC 3.0 to recharge the Anker, as well as another port to charge a phone. The Aukey can output 18W, which is important because that means it can charge 2 QC devices at the same time.

Tests that I have run:

I depleted the battery in the Anker, and was able to recharge it in 3h45min with the Aukey wall adapter. The battery charged at a steady rate, meaning it did not charge 80% capacity ultra fast then the rest slow (like some phones), which would have been pretty cool.

As for the lights, there are 8 of them, however my biggest problem with the battery bank is that you cannot know if it is "accepting" the QC charge or not. I would have liked some sort of different light pattern to notify that the battery was in fact quick charging.


  • Anker Powercore II 10000 - 6.77oz
  • Anker cable - 0.49oz
  • Anker pouch - 0.24oz
  • Aukey Dual Port charger - 3.8oz

The total (without the little pouch) is roughly 11oz, which is pretty solid.

The Powercore II 10,000. I actually haven't weighed it, but I've seen three separate users all report a 6.7oz weight.

Mine will actually be delivered today and I'll definitely be throwing it on the scale.

I misunderstood your reply, I assumed you were saying the Zikko Pro is a touch over 8 oz.

And that Anker isn't really the best 10k option, the Anker Powercore II 10K is better for our uses at only 6.7oz and still offers QC 3.0 and Power IQ 2.0. I believe this is the model /u/mittencamper was likely referring to.

This one has a QC 3.0 input. Not sure if ouput is as well. nit sure if the USB-C changes much except for the connector, I imagine charge rate would stay the same.

Did people see Anker went back to the drawingboard and made a second "Anker PowerCore II 10000"? I guess we should call it Powercore II 10000 Mark II. Now 6.9oz instead of 7.6 like the Mark I, and features the LED power indicator "dial" of the PowerCore+ line, but still has QC in/out. (PC1 10k was 6.35, PC1 10KQC was 6.98oz). Guess 18650s are more efficient weight-wise than thin cells.
