Power banks are as much swag as they are a tool. But the USAMS 10AH dual port power bank provides far more than your standard power bank. The biggest feature being the digital readout of the amount of battery life left. This helps tremendously in situations where four LEDs is simply not enough to judge remaining battery life. The three integrated cables (C, Lightening, and Micro B) provide connection options for most modern devices without the need to carry additional cables. There's a USB A port on the side in the event you did need a longer cable or a connector that isn't one of those three. Charging is done by a USB C port on the side of the bank and charges at 5V 2A. We've tested this with lower power projects on both the Raspberry Pi 4 and 5 and both performed well. Projects needing a larger display (7" and up) will likely need additional power.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
