Bought an 18650 charger/power bank. It only works with the batteries supplied. It charges other batteries but won’t charge devices with those batteries

Hi Ujwal,

Thanks for your question. 

You may be able to do this on other models, but our models can only be charged via the Micro-USB port. 

Many thanks,

Hi Dakota,

Yes, we've seen some of these online too. 

We can't really comment on other manufacturers claims, but we'd be interested to hear your feedback once the product arrives.

Many thanks,

I purchased a Qualcomm 3.0 power bank from Wish that claimed to have 20,000,000 mah. Is that false advertising?  Yes, 20M. It wasn’t a typo.
