    As we all know, the Lumia 720 has a 2000 mAh and the charger that comes with it has a 1.4 A current. I was wondering, whether I could charge my phone to my powerbank that has an output of 2.4 A? Or is it best to charge with just 1A? Please help! Thank you!

    It doesn't matter, the phone will get the current it needs, until some point the higher the current the faster it would charge.

    So yes, you could use the power bank, what really matters it's the voltage or if the current it's too low to charge the phone.

    So, for example you could use a 10000 mAh power bank with a 5V 3A output to charge your phone, after a while your phone's battery 🔋 will be full and your power bank will have ~8000 mAh left.

    The 2.4 A output is the max power it can serve, it doesn't mean that it's going to push that into your phone's battery.
