Once the Anker Power Bank 26800 was drained to 0% I then tested how long it would take to completely recharge it. I was suprised to find that it took 22 hours to fully recharge. Anker does say that it can be fully recharged in 6 hours when using both 4A input ports. I only used 1 in my testing out of curiosity

FINAL THOUGHTS

I was very impressed with the Anker Power Bank 26800. I would of expected to pay $100+ for a power bank that would let me charge my devices as much as the Anker did. Only being $59.99 on Amazon is very amazing to me. It is a little bigger and heavier than I would ultimately like however it is hard to beat how much juice this carries for the price.
