Odd Power bank question

Jan 28, 2020 6:03PM PST

I am replacing a portable nebulizer that uses AA or USB cable. USB is ok around the house, but AA last 10-13 minutes and rechargeable last 13-15 minutes. It uses 3v. Can I use a power bank via the USB cable to run it without damage.? Or would they have too high of volage?

USB standards would be 5V or 5 Volts. Since the usual power bank has the usual USB socket and it's the same as some USB port (voltage) then I'd say it's OK.

HOWEVER for those that worry the ONLY person that can give more assurance is the maker of the nebulizer.

no if the nebulizer is not capable of taking 5v using power bank will damage it.Better use 3v power banks.
