GETIHU Portable Charger 10000 What's Inside

Power & Performance

Battery Capacity

Battery capacity in mAh and Watts

The GETIHU Portable Charger has a battery capacity of 10,000 mAh / 37 Wh, and it has enough energy to charge most phones 2 or 3 times.

Capacity test: discharge the fully charged power bank

Have you ever wondered whether a power bank has its battery capacity? Does it really have 5,000 mAh or 10,000 mAh, as advertised? What is the real battery capacity?

To check the actual battery capacity we need:

  • The fully charged power bank

  • A USB tester that shows the current, voltage, mAh, and charging time.

  • The USB mini adjustable load receives energy from the power bank and releases it safely via the fan. This is the safe way to discharge a fully charged power bank and measure the real battery capacity.

I connect the dummy load (amperes are set to 2) to the USB tester, then plug it into the fully charged power bank. Once that’s done, I wait until the power bank’s battery goes flat. The screen on the USB tester will display the Watt-hours and the amount of mAh consumed. These data show the real battery capacity.

Using the aforementioned procedure, I tested the GETIHU Portable Charger 10000. Here are the results:

Capacity Test

Capacity Test

  • Discharge Time - 2 hours and 57 minutes

  • Watt-Hours - 30.2 Wh

  • Ampere hour - 6,868 mAh

The real battery capacity is 6,868 mAh. This mAh measurement shows you the energy you will fully use to charge your mobile phone. It’s not 10,000 mAh because the unit is converting energy from 3.7V (the power bank’s battery voltage) to 5V (USB voltage). This loss occurs in every power bank.

When you know the advertised and real battery capacity, it’s possible to measure the battery efficiency, which in this case is 93%. Manufacturers frequently don’t share this information. Efficiency above 90% is considered very good. This power bank has one of the best battery efficiency you can get.

Disclaimer: Every test can produce different results, but only small variations.

How many times can you charge the most popular mobile phones in 2020?

To put the battery capacity into perspective, I will use a formula for Real Battery Capacity and calculate how many times the GETIHU Portable Charger 10000 can charge the top 10 most popular mobile phones in 2020. Perhaps you own one of them, or at least you know your mobile phone’s battery capacity.

From the previous test, we know the real battery capacity is 6,868 mAh.

Once we know the real battery capacity, we simply divide it by the enlisted mobile phones’ battery capacity to find out how many times it can be charged.

Mobile Phone Model

How Many Times Can It Be Charged?

iPhone 12 Pro - 2,815mAh


Oppo Find X2 Pro - 4,260mAh


Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus - 4,500mAh


OnePlus 8 Pro - 4,510mAh


Pixel 5 - 4,000mAh


iPhone SE 2 - 1,821mAh


Motorola Edge - 4,500mAh


Google Pixel 4a - 3,140mAh


Huawei P40 Pro Plus - 4,200mAh


Moto G8 - 5,000mAh


All enlisted phones will get over one full charge. The iPhone SE 2 should fully charge about 4 times, iPhone 12 Pro at least 2.5 times, and Google Pixel 4a over 2 times. Phones with a battery capacity of more than 4,000 mAh might get almost 2 full charges. It’s worth keeping in mind that we rarely start charging our phones until they’re completely dead or finish charging at 100% (it’s not recommended). As a result, our chargers can give us extra juice.

Output Charging

Charging Time & Power Usage

Power banks are used mainly to charge devices. Therefore, this review would not be completed without testing output charging. For this, knowledge of the device’s charging time is crucial. Frequently it is one of the most important factors in the purchase of a power bank.

For these tests, I used two mobile phones:

  • Huawei P10 with a battery of 3200 mAh (Huawei SuperCharge)

  • Samsung S8 with a battery of 3000mAh (Adaptive Fast Charging)

Both phones support fast-charging technology.

To record data (current, voltage, mAh, time) I used a USB tester.

Real-life examples of test-charged phones demonstrate what you can expect after purchasing a power bank.

The GETIHU Portable Charger 10000, with its high-efficiency battery and Smart IC (fast-charging), sets the expectations high. Two USB-A ports are rated at 5V/3A. It might charge faster than an average power bank. Let’s check the test results:

Charging via USB-A (Huawei)

Charging via USB-A (Huawei)

It took 1 hour and 45 minutes to charge the Huawei P10, longer than an average power bank. The charging rate averaged 5V/1.3A, whereas most power banks charge at 5V/1.8A. The battery level was at 84% at the beginning and finished at 40%. The mobile phone received 2,314 mAh / 11.9 Wh in total.

Charging via USB-A (Samsung)

Charging via USB-A (Samsung)

It took 1 hour and 21 minutes to charge the Samsung S8. That’s a good time, the time I expected from this power bank. The charging rate was at 5V/1.8A. The power bank’s battery was at 99% at the start of the test and finished at 76%. The power bank delivered a total of 2,114 mAh / 10.9 Wh.

Charging two phones simultaneously

Charging two phones simultaneously

It took nearly 2 hours to charge two phones simultaneously – a pretty good time. Both phones received about 2,200 mAh / 11.5 Wh. The power bank used more energy than I expected, though. It started at 100% and finished at 6%. I hoped there would be enough energy left to half-charge at least one of the phones.

A roundup of output charging

The GETIHU power bank passed the tests with a decent score. It should easily charge most phones within 90 minutes and deliver enough energy to charge most phones at least twice unless you have a phone with a battery over 3,500 mAh. In that case, it might not be enough. Having two ports is certainly a benefit and charges two phones within a reasonable time.

Input Charging

The GETIHU Portable Charger 10000 offers industry-standard input charging at 5V/2A. The power bank uses Micro USB for recharging and should take between 5 and 6 hours to fully charge.

I charged the power bank twice. The first test, via a standard charger rated at 5V/2A charging speed; a charger most of us have. For the second charge, I used the charger rated 65W, the fastest type of charger, able to charge compatible laptops.

Recharging via Standard Charger

Recharging via Huawei Charger

The standard charger needed nearly 6 hours to fully recharge the power bank , slightly longer than expected. The power bank received 8,629 mAh / 45 Wh in total.

Recharging via Fast Charger

Recharging via RAVPower Fast Charger

The power bank was fully recharged within 5 hours and 27 minutes. It received in total 9,103 mAh / 45.8 Wh. This is a good recharging time and meets expectations.

A roundup of input charging

The GETIHU power bank’s recharging speed meets the market’s expectations for a battery of this capacity. Don’t expect extraordinary speed, but once it’s plugged in you’ll get to full battery in a maximum of 6 hours.

Packaging is a frequently neglected part of reviews, but in this case, it’s worth mentioning. The box is high-quality cardboard with 2 small compartments : one for the power bank and another one for a travel pouch, a Micro USB cable, a user manual, and an extra USB LED light.

The power bank is made of shiny black plastic. It resembles aluminum but is less sturdy. The top and bottom have a matte rubberized finish that successfully prevents smudges, fingerprints and scratches. All parts are finely assembled, there are no loose parts or creaks. It stays firmly in your hand.

The unique part of this power bank is its digital LED display, which indicates the battery level. It works very well. To activate it, press the button to the right of the screen. It’s located on the center part, near the side, and opposite to it is the brand marking. No more LED lights to give us an estimated battery level! The technical specifications are on the bottom.

Above the LED digital screen on the front side are two USB-A ports lined up horizontally , and between them is another unique feature, the flashlight. Activating it requires two rapid presses. It’s not a powerful light, but it might be useful in an emergency or when you need to find something in a dark room. The Micro USB port used to recharge the power bank is to the left of the digital screen on the side of the device.

Overall, GETIHU’s manufacturer tried to create a power bank that’s well-designed and functional. They did it well.




The GETIHU Portable Charger has two USB-A output ports and is rated at 5V/3A. The ports can be used simultaneously. This is a very useful feature and rare in power banks with this battery capacity. Micro USB is used for recharging the power bank and is rated at 5V/2A.
