    Hello there guys,

    Will it be possible to run a gps, such as the tomtom 50S, out of a 20000mah power bank for 8 hours?

    I know the best way is to try but, before I buy it, I will like to know your input?

    Thanks in advance

    Hey -- had forgotten having written that!
    Yes, your selection (20000mAh) should do nicely with power to spare, if the spec is real.

    That’s what it says. Bought an Aukey 20000mAH powerbank with the 2.4amp charger. Let’s see how it works and after I will post the result here just in case someone else needs that info.

    Thanks for the fast reply. Have a great day.

    Well, after 14 hours of continuous use the gps did not even drain 25% of the charge. Pretty amazed with the results.
