    Great Buy!

    I had been wanting to buy a battery pack for a while now. I did some research, as I always do when buying something. I saw this pack and I just loved it. I know there are some that come with a wall plug and all, but this just seemed like a better buy for me. I travel every now and then for work, and just for fun, and I have a lot of things that need charging. I have my phone of course the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, my tablet the Samsung Galaxy S2 8.0, my smart watch Samsung Gear S2, my GoPro Hero 4 Silver, and my Bluetooth headphones. Its been great for all those things!! I will say this, It takes quite a while to charge the pack itself. I haven't timed it but I want to say it is roughly like 12 hours or so, so I only charge it at night, and only when its fully dead. I like that it has a battery level indicator on the side, and yes it does last a good while and I can get multiple charges for my various devices out of it. Another great feature is that is has 3 ports for charging. One is a fast charging or something like that, and the next one is a little less fast, and the other is just a normal USB port. It is a little heavy, but I always have it in my backpack so I don't feel the weight so much.

    It's a great portable charger with a huge capacity. I was working 70+ hour weeks and my phone was dying before I finished work on a daily basis so I got this. At the time the guy at the counter tried to talk me down to one of their BestBuy brands as this is $100 and their brands are cheaper for what you get, but I wanted the one with the largest capacity. This thing recharged my Galaxy Note 8 multiple times throughout a single week without needing to be recharged. You could take this thing camping with you and not have to worry about outlets for your phone. Theres 3 USB ports and 2 of them are 2.1a for fast charging, third is 1.0, so you can charge up to 3 at a time though I just use it for my phone. I want to play around with LED strips for a rave and plug it into this for fun. It works too since it fits in my pocket tho it is sizeable. If you're a girl then you might need a purse. 5 stars because it works better than expected for it's intended purpose. I rather have been safe than sorry though, but BestBuy is great about returns and even price matching after you buy it. Reasonably within the return policy I believe though. Hope this helps anyone on the fence.

    Big Battery / Big Performance

    This portable charger will charge your devices numerous times with ease - and simultaneously if so desired. It's large and heavy and takes quite a while to fully charge (as expected) - consider this when making your purchase. A helpful hint - I bought a Nintendo 3DS case to store this battery when traveling; it fits perfectly in the bottom section, and the 'separator' built into the case is helpful to separate any charging cables in the top section that you may wish to carry as well. Just don't charge your devices when in this case (or any other), per Mophie's instructions - to avoid overheating potential.

    One of the best purchases I’ve made at BB

    Complete assurance that I will NEVER be without power (fingers-crossed*). ... and I’ve never had cause for concern that I’ll have Power when I need it for the gift of the iPad I have and the iPhone I have [BIG emoji-smile]. P.S. and this portable charger can be used multiple$ times before needing to be recharged FOOTNOTES: *To cross one's fingers is a hand gesture commonly used to wish for luck. Occasionally it is interpreted as an attempt to implore God for protection. Source: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossed_fingers $probably in 2 multiples of 3, i.e i haven’t tested charging my iPhone XS Max up to 6 times with this, but theoretically (?) it may be possible to do this, e.g Non-removable Li-Ion 3174 mAh battery x 6 = 19,044 mAh < 20,000 mAh

    I bought it for portable charging of my iphone during power outages. I've used for 3 months shy of a year. The good: It is portable. It charges my phone many times before the Mophie needs recharging. It works when you have no other charging source. The bad: It's big. It gets finnicky with the cables used to charge the phone. An Insignia lightning cable recently quit woking with the Mophie. An Apple OEM lightning cable works just fine. It takes forever for this thing to get a full charge. The charging cable included with the device is kind of short. Ultimately, I am happy with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone needing portable power charging for iPhones.

    The powerstation will take about about 10 to 12 hours fully charge, if you use heavy duty cables. Mine purpose for purchase for use with 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 powerstation can charge your iPad 2018, however, it will not charge at 12W. it is lithium battery. However, you should not have any issues bringing this on your flight, as it meets carry-on requirements. The lifetime of this battery lasts for awhile! I can charge my phone to 100% at least 5+ times without even charging the battery for days! The size is pretty big.. bigger than i expected.. It about the size of my entire hand. Pretty thick too, but money was well spent!! Definitely an awesome brand to get! I carry it around everywhere!

    This works well on several Android devices, but does not rapid charge iPad. It does maintain the iPad, but over several hours the iPad willbe dead. I got over 12 hours on my iPad using this last weekend (less than 4 hours without this pack), however, I also plugged into the Apple charger for a few minutes because I was worried. My only complaint is the one I got was used, the package had clearly been opened, and pack had fingerprints on it. I'm OK with that, but I did pay for a new one. Was it opened by a potential customer and put back in the box? Or was it used on a extreme hiking trip in the rainforest and then returned to the store? I don't know! Again, it does work great, and I've used it a lot already. It does its job nicely!

    Mophie XXL is absolutely great!!!

    I personally think the Mophie Powerstation XXL is a great device since it can power your smartphone up to 10 times or 8 times if you have a large phone such as the iPhone 6 or 7 Plus. I'll admit that the power back is a bit bulky, but you have power to spare with this device. Would be perfect for a long international flight. Full charging does take about 12-14 hours, but once you have it charged all the way, you don't have to worry about running out of power on your devices such as smartphone, iPad, Tablet, Bluetooth speaker headphones and so forth.

    Best Mophie Yet

    To be honest I was hesitant to buy another backup charger. However its one of the best purchases I've done. I have 100+ hours stored in it, can easily take it anywhere I like. Can slip it in my bag and take it on the go. Great for a backup or for an emergency. Easily can charge my Galaxy S8+ even with the option of choosing the charge rate. The durability on this took me by surprise. Accidentally dropped it on cement 4 feet landing on its side, a slight scratch but no damage to the device. Wish it included a case for it or a pouch so it could prevent getting scratched. Other than that I would highly recommend it to someone who needs more than a small backup charger or have hours of work to do on their phone or tablet, even with a MacBook.

    We picked this one up prior to heading over to Europe with the family. Lots of phones, tablets etc and sometimes there just isn't an easy way to power up. It took a while to charge for the first time, but after that I used it as the main power for all of my devices. I have the micro USB version, but it also comes in USB-C which charges even faster. Either way, I never needed to go more than overnight even with all of the devices it was topping off during the day. Aside from being a little heavy/bulky, it's a definite recommend for anyone needing portable power.

    So far, so good. But so bulky.

    Holds a ton of charge. 3 ports is nice with all the devices someone or a couple or family may have. It is significantly larger and heavier than our previous Powerstation, so doesn't fit in a pocket or small purse quite as easily - LxW is the same but it's thicker and at least 3x heavier. Does not sync with the Mophie app if that's something you feel you need, but the onboard indicator is fine so far. My wife reported that it would stop charging after a while unattended and she had to hit the "power" button to start it up again, but I haven't run into that yet myself. All in all, a good deal per the price we paid (on sale $75).

    Charging for a party

    I have used these larger Mophie batteries for years, specifically for recharging when on a family trip or when traveling with a larger party. In New York and spending the day walking the city? In Europe and touring for the day? This is for you. Many will say it's too heavy, but if you have three or four people with backpacks or bags, share the weight across bags and take this with you. On the other hand, if you are alone, buy a smaller version that isn't so heavy, or better yet, get the mophie case that has the extended battery. I highly recommend them as well!

    I love love this charger. I use it for my cell phone, tablet, and digital camera. This is the larger Mophie. I also have the smaller one that does great but only charges my cell phone 4 times before needing recharged. Both have a gauge on them so you can tell if it needs charging. The large one holds way more charges. It has 2 charging powers. Of course the 2.1A for tablets. There are two 2.1 A slots and one 1.0A. You can charge 3 devices at once. It charges my devices quickly! Did I say I love this device!!!! If you are planning a nice trip this is a must. But I use my any time I'm away from my wall charger. I don't leave home without it!

    Mophie is a great trusted brand

    This Mophie battery is perfect for traveling. Got it during the holiday season at a great price. It's bigger than most portable batteries and has some weight to it, might be a hassle for some who carry an external battery in the back pocket or the pocket of a jacket. They may want to consider getting the smaller one, (10,000mah capacity) The reason I went with this is because I want to be able to charge my iPhone, iPad and GoPro camera when I'm out and about. The battery takes a while to fully charge, but it works very well for many charges and charges the devices pretty fast.

    Priority Charging is a must Have!!

    I Use this mophie as sort of a battery back up for my Motorhome security WiFi jet pack in case of a power failure. The priority usb charge port will allow your device to get fully charged while the charger is plugged in to the ac outlet. Most other power station units do not have this important feature. With this Mofhie unit, I now have about 3 days of extra capacity for my security cameras at my rv which I use for my work location in Georgia in case there is a power failure.

    Little brother of the big one

    I bought the Big Brother of this one originally. And thought it was fantastic, unlimited charging capability for your phones and tablets. The downside was the recharge rate for it. It took too long. So I wound up buying this one the little brother, which does about two-thirds of the charging for telephones and everything, but recharges at a much higher rate. Overnight it will fully charged. The big Mamba Boy that would last you for 2 weeks potentially, took literally two or three days to charge. Not useful since I needed it on a day-to-day basis. Love this one.

    Initially purchased this to power my GoPro on the go and ended up using it for my and my wife’s cell phones as well. I’ve charged the GoPros dual battery charger more than a handful of times, along with the cellphones and the Mophie power station is on “full charge” I will say it is on the large side but well worth the purchase if you’re out at your kids baseball games or out hiking and need to charge multiple electronics.

    I bought this prior to an international trip to avoid worrying about adapters and converters, and it worked great! It basically lasts forever. I let another traveler borrow my Mophie for a long flight, and he said he was able to charge his phone from nothing to full and keep it fully charged through 8 hours of video playback--all while the Mophie charge declined from full to about 75%. If I were looking for a new Mophie, I'd look at the USB-C version of this one, as it may charge slightly faster.

    My wife wanted a portable charger for her phone so I went to Best Buy with no knowledge at all. I reviewed the product packaging of several devices and decided on the Mophie. It performed great, well beyond the package statements. We then bought them for Christmas gifts for the kids and their spouses and everyone was really pleased with their performance so I had to go and buy me one and I got the 20,000 mah and it is a beast. Charged my tablet while streaming MMA fights. Great product.

    When one hears the name “Mophie,” Certain standards come to mind. This device does not live up to those standards. The charges my phone up to five times from completely dead. That’s great. However, it does so slowly. The new standard output reading is 2.4; this device only put 2.1. It is significantly slower than the 2.4 output devices.
