The charging time of your power bank depends upon what charger it supports and the charger you are using to charge your power bank. If it’s a 1A (1000mA) charger then it will take longer time to charge but if it’s a 2A (2000mA) charger then you can charge your powerbank quicker. You can find the power information of the charger in the label of your charger itself. Charging from direct power source plug point with original charger is faster than charging from the PC USB port.

Power bank charging time calculation: Power bank’s mAh capacity / charger’s mA capacity. Example: 10000 / 1000 = 10 hours.

How many times the power bank can be used to charge the phone? Can a power bank with 10000mAh capacity able to charge a 1000mAh capacity phone for 8 times full? The answer is ‘No’. For calculating of the total time you can charge other devices with the power bank, use the below formula:
Real capacity * conversion rate * phone battery health / phone capacity = total charge times
Example: 10000 x 0.8 x 0.8 / 1000 = 6.4 charge times.
