When the 20,000mAh is fully charged, it can give about a 50% battery boost to a laptop computer that supports USB-C power input, or charge a dead iPhone 11 battery about 6 times.
RavPower 20,100mAh Portable Battery Charger for $40 when clicking the $10 coupon under the $50 price.
If you want high power USB-C portable charging from a battery that takes in USB-Micro charging, this one may be a good choice.

This is only for someone with USB-C devices, as it must be charged from a USB-C AC adapter with 45W or higher (not included) and will work with any USB-C charger that came with a laptop or iPad Pro as long as it is rated 45W or higher.
Provides 60W portable power for a laptop or iPad Pro, for charging away from a power outlet, like outside on a patio, at a pool, or when you can travel away from home again.
Ours charges a Lenovo Thinkpad battery from 10% to 70%.
Note that some power hungry MacBook models will not take power from this RavPower, because some need more than the 60W provided.
Check your MacBook model or laptop specs, to see if it can take 60W (or less) power through USB-C.
This RavPower also has one QC 3.0 18W USB charging port for charging a phone or tablet, but this RavPower really designed to be a USB-C charger with its high 60W power delivery capability.
Its 12A (12 amps) power capacity means 5 phones/tablets/batteries can be charged simultaneously at their maximum 2.4A (2.4 amps) rate, or 6 devices at a reduced rate.
Its 5-foot power cord brings the charging ports closer, so you can use shorter charging cables.
USB chargers are considered "essential" items because they charge phones which keep family members in-touch, so Amazon ships this product with the highest priority.
Prime members get this item within 2 days.
When it arrives, register the product with RavPower to get a 30-month warranty (18 months will be added to the included 12-month warranty).
Device is service-locked to Simple Mobile.
It will not work with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or any other service.
Can work as a standalone device over wifi, without subscribing to Simple Mobile.
Simply do not insert the included Simple Mobile SIM card and there will be no possibility of incurring service fees.
If you already have a phone with service, this is could be hot deal if you have wifi at home.
Activate the phone over Wifi with your Apple account, download apps, and use in your home or car.
Its 32GB storage is plenty for hours of music or audio books, or stream music over wifi.
Its built-in Bluetooth lets you pair with an external speaker or home theater A/V receiver.
Use as a smart, touchscreen remote control for the TV.
Smart TVs like those with built-in Roku can be fully controlled by the Roku app.
Smart streaming devices like Apple TV, Roku, Xbox One, and Nvidia Shield TV can be controlled with an app.
Can control a Google Chromecast to "cast" music and video to a TV.
For example, use the YouTube, YouTube Music, or YouTube TV app on the device to navigate music and shows, and press "cast" to play them on your TV.
When used as a remote control, you can turn off the auto-lock to leave the screen on without having to wake it after being idle for a few minutes.
Works over wifi, which can be more reliable than an IR remote with a strong home wifi signal.
Use as a navigation GPS.
The phone can use GPS satellites when it can see the sky, like when mounted to the dash of a car.
All you need is maps downloaded onto the device, since it cannot access the Internet without a SIM card.
For hiking, use Gaia GPS which keeps hiking trails onto your device.
For private pilots, use ForeFlight which keeps flight charts on your device and assists with navigation.
Since the iPhone SE's 4" screen is so small, it may be mounted to the yoke (steering wheel).
Use with FaceTime and iMessage.
Video calls work over wifi, making this $60 device one of the cheapest ways to get a FaceTime-compatible chat device.
The 4-inch screen is very small, though.
iMessages work over wifi, to send/receive text messages with people with Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Macbook).
Regular text messages do not work without cell service, so messages to/from someone with an Android phone or from an automated service will not work.
Use as a digital wallet.
Apple Pay enabled cash registers can accept payment of credit cards stored on this device.
The downsides of this phone:
Resource-intensive games will not play well.
Cases can be harder to find for this old phone.
When shopping, be sure the case is for the 4-inch screen of the 2016 iPhone SE (not the 4.7-inch iPhone SE 2020).
The 4-inch screen can seem small to anyone used to a larger phone.
Its 45W USB-C PD output is capable of charging a USB-C laptop from 0% to 60%, if the laptop can accept 45W USB-C power input.
Check the specs of your laptop, keeping in mind that some power-hungry laptops need at least 60W input to charge their battery, and won't be compatible.
This is one of the least expensive portable battery chargers capable of charging a laptop (if supported).
Just one regular USB port capable of charging a phone or laptop at its maximum 2.4A rate.
Can charge with either a USB-micro cable or a USB-C cable.
They can be controlled by pressing the switches as normal, and can be controlled over wifi with smart devices like phones and smartspeakers.
