I bought something similar recently. Totally worth it in my opinion, saved my ass a couple times. I get at least 5 or 6 charges on my phone but mine takes a loooong time to charge, at least 12 hours. That's a downside because unless I'm sleeping near an outlet I can't really charge it. But I usually seem to get housed up enough to where I can charge. Would highly recommend to anyone considering it. Worth the price.

Everywhere, No where
I have a PoketJuice - endurance A.C.
1200mAH
Was about 40 at Walmart..
But was a sweet kick down from a fellow vet.
Takes about 12 to 16 hours to charge, but I can charge a large Phone like 4 times fully.

I have an iGO 6000 mAH power bank charger - couple years old - doesn't take long at all to charge and I can charge a dead phone and dead notepad off it with juice to spare.

Thing I don't care about it (and I don't know if this is a common feature) is the stupid flashlight on it (Why?) with a rinky dink button that may shut it off or take many pushings to shut it off. Really hate relying on it but then opening up side pocket on backpack and OH NOES - darn flash light is on.

But I love having it - saved me a lot when I wasn't paying attention to my phone/notepad power.

Mine has the same thing! I hate it too, serves no purpose...and mine is pretty damn bright. Use that energy to charge my phone! ::arrgh::

Not too long ago, I got fed up with smaller cheap-ass power banks that drug stores sell. I spent roughly $40 (including shipping) for a 20,000 mAh power bank with 4 output USB ports and 2 input ports for charging.

Said 10000 mAh/37Wh on back.I am not a super tech kinda guy lol.Just works for me lol.

Holy shit! 10000 mAh?? That thing must weight 10 pounds. I have a 4500 mAh one. It is a lifesaver when I'm in the middle of a city with no charge trying to figure out where I'm going on myphone.

AND a flashlight! ;)

I looked at the specs and like it - really like the 4 out and 2 in as well - less time spent. Size wise it's Size: 6.57 x 3.15 x 0.86in
Weight: 454g/16 oz. May have to upgrade!

Only one button controls the four-light meter and the built in flashlight. You have to push the button twice to turn the flashlight on/off. I've had no problems with that since I bought it.

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
