Can I use a regular old power bank with my Nexus 6P?

I have a couple of 2600mAh power banks that I used with my old phone. They're Duracell units I got from Costco but I can't find a link online, sorry. My new phone uses USB-C to charge which apparently draws 3A; can I still use these old power banks with my fancy new device? [more inside]

Laptop charged, house lights flicker. What's going on?

I've just moved into a new (to me) house. (The house itself is old and quite funky.) I brought with me my extant Macbook Pro (most-recent vintage). I'm finding that when my computer is fully charged and the charging cable is plugged in (green light), the house lights flicker. [more inside]

iPhone Battery Charging

We've all been reading about the iPhone and its battery that's supposed to last 300-400 charges. How do they define "charge"? I usually charge mine every night, when the battery is at about 50%. Is that a "charge"? If I top my iPhone off when it's at 80%, is that a charge? What's the best way to preserve the life of my iPhone battery?
