      Mega battery with real true wall plug!

      At first glance, I thought that this was just an automotive power inverter (it isn't) or some kind of weird jumper system (also not it). When I looked closer, I saw that it was a large battery pack with an onboard power inverter for wall plugs and a USB-C port. Unfortunately, and this is my biggest gripe with all battery packs in general, not just this one; there was basically no useful information on the packaging to determine what the output ratings were. My use case; reserve power for a 15" 2017 MacBook Pro, charger for an iPhone, an iPad, and a Nintendo Switch, battery powered wall plug for special tools or other equipment. On the first, there are two ways to charge a 2016 or 2017 MacBook Pro from this. First is the onboard USB-C port, second is the inverter to wall power. From System Profiler, I was able to see that the USB-C port on the myCharge provides 15 watts of power; enough to trickle charge a MacBook Pro or decently charge a 12" MacBook. For some reason, the USB-C port being a 15 watt port is mentioned nowhere on the packaging or online. So, now you know, it's a 15 watt USB-C port. 15W over USB-C. This does not have USB-C power delivery. As for the wall plug, it powers the 87W Apple USB-C brick and the MacBook Pro recognizes it and shows 86 watts of available power. Good job! Does exactly what it says on the tin in that regard. If you need to charge your MacBook or MacBook Pro quickly, use the wall plug. The inversion will give you less power due to heat dissipation than trickle charging from the USB-C port, but it will also charge much, much faster. Full speed, in fact. That's the upside of having an onboard inverter. 15W is more than sufficient for charging a Nintendo Switch while playing it; I've gotten away with a 12W iPad block and still gained charge while playing Breath of the Wild; the Switch is impressively power efficient. Standard USB ports, standard iPhone and iPad charging, nothing to see here, move along. If it doesn't charge your phone or tablet then either your cable or you are the problem, not the charger. The design is great; super solid, nice black matte finish, wouldn't hesitate to take this onto a job site or camping. The charging block for the myCharge is hefty and proprietary, rather than USB-C like many other batteries, but that's the tradeoff for getting such huge capacity and decent charging speed. In short; an excellent product. I'm knocking the one star because honestly I wouldn't even be writing this review if the manufacturer had actually put useful labels and information on the packaging and I didn't have to conduct power rating testing myself.

      65W output (why is that not listed here?)

      This device has a stated maximum 65W output, which is not listed on this web page anywhere -- but it's listed right on the side of the physical box: AC 110V 65W. One of the top comments ("Mega battery with true real wall plug!") mentioned this worked with their 87W USB-C brick from Apple, so I gave it a try. Sadly, it does *not* work with my 85W MagSafe brick (for a 2015 MacBook Pro Retina). Plug it in, and after a few seconds the onboard display reads "MAX POWER EXEEDED" and the AC power shuts off. Glad it shut off before damaging my device, but wish the website would have mentioned this is a 65W charger before I drove up to Best Buy to pick it up.

      I purchased this a little bit ago for school, since the classrooms don't have enough wall plugs in them to charge our laptops during class. I've been using this about a week. It works pretty well. I have a Dell Inspiron 17in 7000 laptop, and the battery pack will give it about two charges. However, the screen brightness must be on dim, and it can't be used very much while being charged in order to get the full two charges. Having the screen brightness on bright and using the laptop a good bit while charging, though, will give it a full charge once. Overall, it is a pretty good product for $200. Gives a good charge and isn't very heavy either. It's about the weight of an engineering textbook. Great for college/work use.

      I bought this during a storm after a tree fell into my bedroom. I've been using it straight for almost a month (still without power due to damage). The unit itself charges quickly. It charges my cellphone (Galaxy S9) quickly and several times. The plug is a great feature. I've used it to make coffee with my keurig and to charge my laptop. I was able to fully charge my phone at the same time I was using my laptop. And have charged both the phone and a tablet at the same time. It's not too bulky and is actually the only battery charger that has continued to charge as advertised. Well worth the money!!

      Heavy as sin and twice as ugly, but this thing does what it says and does it well. Charges from a wall socket surprisingly fast and charges multiple devices to full fairly rapidly. The only thing I feel it needs is a positive on/off switch to prevent accidental button presses from activating it unintentionally.

      I have only used one time to charge my phone battery while in flight from Puerto Rico, but it allowed me to watch movies to pass time of a 4.5 hour flight! Seems like a very robust product. A little on the heavy and bulky side for travel however.

      Purchased to keep phones charged during power outages. Has enough power to keep 2 phones powered for several days Unit is about the size of a large paperback book. The only negative is the external power adapter to change the brick.

      Used to plug in my laptop on a long ride. Did what I needed... wish it would have lastest longer but for the price - its worth it. It started out bulky and cumbersome but eventually... we made it work. It did exactly what it claims. Worth the purchase!
