This is a match of perfection. Same exact footprint, and just enough room to include AirPods without stress.
I love the new PowerCore, it's so cute! Smaller than I had imagined.

Now for my first pics for this board:

So, if I buy a phone battery thingy, I gotta buy a Q-Kit too? What an enabler you are!

I've already made two orders this month! I've got a mini Q-Kit on my wish list, but until my snake charmer is available, I'm trying to hold off on buying anything else!

I have an Anker PowerCore+ 10050 that I recently traveled with in the bigger Q-Kit along with all my assorted cables, standard chargers and ear buds. It all fit compactly in one of the Imago's interior pockets. I use a mini Q-Kit for one charger and cable in my EDC. They are great little pouches!

I like the size of the battery pack. I might have to get one for minimalist travel. I currently haul around a huge battery pack.

6700 appears to be about 1/4 of that size!

Yeah, this things is huge, but it's 23k mAh and has quick charge. I use it to charge tablets and both of our phones and only charge it once every few weeks.

Do the names of the chargers correspond to their charging capacity?

Does one able to charge 2 phones and 2 tablets can fit into a Small Q-Kit? What would be the Mah capacity needed?

For Anker the name does correspond with the mAh capacity.

In general a charger with capacity to fully charge 2 phones and 2 tablets isn't going to fit in a Q kit. They tend to be very large. I tend to use Stuff Sacks or Side Effects to store them with other kit.

It depends on your phones and tablets and if you want a full charge. Since Apple doesn't actually release battery sizes, some search and guessing. The iPhone 7 Plus has 2900 mAh, iPhone X has 2176 mAh, and iPad Air 2 has 7340 mAh. That brings us to 19,756 mAh (working with 2 iPad Air 2s), assuming 20% of the batteries capacity is lost during transmission and a full charge is desired, you'd need 23,707.2. And from Anker I would get the one of the 26,000 mAh, probably Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD to be specific.

Forgot this! My husband has that battery and for our last trip used a Stuff Sack size 3 to hold the battery, it's charger, and all the cords. There was tons of room left. The Stuff Sack just worked best for his style.
