The 16000mAh version is slimmer than the 10400mAh version.s_29b6c7552d0546a883d71922fde7f9a4 s_5a920d7a5136495e849605db5807e4ee s_29f14c90fb30478d9fbac7d6bb156150 s_6afc588390c841bfb3b67794efacf671 s_14149a2ecbec44078ef361d14d08a0a8 s_caa880ec439e41cda3856f59f786c008

The biggest change is that the 16000mAh version now has two USB ports, allowing users to charge two devices at the same time.


The design style has not changed with the exception of the additional USB charging port.
