I just had to get rid of my Anker 20,000 mAh power bank when I discovered the batteries had swelled so much that they broke open the case. Anker is a top brand, and I have no problem ordering from them again, but I will change my storage practice.

I don't know if this power bank was Lithium-Ion or Lithium-Polymer, but my hunch is Lithium-Ion. In the future, I will store these kinds of devices in fireproof containers. I have two fire bags sold for charging, but I will also add a proper metal container.



Arduino says and I agree, in general, the const keyword is preferred for defining constants and should be used instead of #define
