Powerbank safety

Hello, have a question. Currently i'm seeking powerbank for my gadgets, primarily Samsung Galaxy Note 2, others are Ipad 4 and notebook.
But question is, can powerbank damage my phone? I heard, that fast charging technology can do harm. Especially to Note 2. This said a consultant in a shop. But i should check this.
I look for Anker powerbanks. Some of them are with fast charging. But is this safe?

Thanks.

Haven't heard of any blown phones or tablets.

But there are folk that just worry about everything. For them they search and search for answers.

For this one ONLY Samsung may hold the answer for them.

So while I've yet to hear of a failure first hand, I'm just someone with a lot of exposure to many users. It won't help the worrier.

Don't Worry

In the past I've used powerbanks from ASUS and Blackberry, I've never had problems with any powerbank i used. I have a S8 Plus and an iPhone 7, they are fine, nothing ever happened to them because of a powerbank so don't worry.
