10,000mAH is a very popular capacity point for power banks as it balances portability with adequate battery capacity. A 10000 mAH portable charger will recharge most smartphones about two to three times. The size and weight of 10,000mAH power banks is still small enough to fit in a pocket (or in a handbag) which is another huge plus while you are on-the-go.
