Default My 50,000mAh powerbank

So i recently bought an ipower brand power bank 50,000mAh.. its pretty cheap..

And i wanna see whether it is really 50,000mAh or not because i charged my phone only few times and it is out of power. my phone battery is 1,160mAh. So weird.

any suggestions to check? im scared mine is fake.

The amount seems ridiculously large. But hey, who knows. Charge the powerbank, see how many times you can recharge your phone battery (or get friend's phone and friend's friend's phone too)

Is it about the size of a car battery? If not, it can't be 50 Ah @ 3,7 V. LOL

its like the size of note 2 and longer a bit. quite heavy.

well i noticed it takes like 8-12 hours to charge the powerbank when its really out of power.. could it be 50,000mAh since charging it is so long?

@alvster
Only way to be sure is to measure it or rip it open and see what kind of cells and how many there are inside.
There is one more important question - 50 Ah at how many Volts? 3,7 V? 5 V? Or 1 ... ? The cells inside are likely going to be 3,7 V, but you never know how much power it actually stores unless you know both capacity and voltage against which it is measured or, even better, wattage.
