    I have an older Anker and its great. But to be honest if you need something for a single charge look for one of the smaller batteries. That thing weighs a lot.

    What are you looking for size wise and power wise? What is the "best" and "compact and powerful/fastest" power bank tends to be subjective.

    Size wise something small and thin enough to fit comfortably in my pocket power wise, 1-2 charges? Is there any advantage to having more power, like wont it drain on its own anyway if not used?

    The one I linked weighs a lot? What weight would you say I should look for?

    By hefty you mean heavy?

    Awesome just ordered, thanks. Are there many instances where I would need 2 charges? Found this one too:

    It's not too late to change my order. Is 4.8 ounces going to feel a lot heavier than 2.8? I know that may seem like a dumb question but it's hard to visualize.

    Stick with your order. If you find it too heavy it will make a great backpack charger and you can always go for the smaller one later

    I ordered the lipstick charger, should I also keep the one I linked in my OP?

    Yeah. If you're looking for something light, this one is not it.

    I use my larger charger frequently.
    I use it to charge devices while sitting on the couch, outside, eating establishments, on the train, as a passenger in a vehicle and so on.
    Sometimes its more convenient than using an wall outlet.

    Also, you never know when you when you will lose power.

    The lipstick charger you linked, does it actually give you a full charge? I have a copycat one made by sharper image that I got at TJ Maxx, same shape and size and it's absolute junk.

    I tell you, Anker and Aukey have never disappointed,
    The lipstick charges the 7+ about 65%, >5SE 90%

    Running full brightness will test any battery.

    Wait it only charges your 5SE to 90%?? Why does it say it charges a 6S 1.2 times?
