    Great concept but didn't work as expected

    Posted
    TheHandsomeNerd

    I wasn't necessarily shopping for a portable charger - I have 5 other portable chargers I make do with - but this one captured my attention because of the carabinger clip. My other chargers have to be carried in my pocket or my hand when I'm using it to charge my phone; this clip would allow me to clip the charger to a belt loop or pocket or strap on my backpack while charging my phone (very convienent). My requirement was the portable charger must have dual USB output ports and both ports must support fast charging. Another stipulation was the charger must be able to charge my phone, a Note 4, at least twice before the charger needed to be charged. (FYI - I have to charge my phone at least twice a day and my other portable charger, save one, meet these requirements.) Even though the myCharge Max has these features, I purchased the Plus instead of the Max because the size of the Plus is more convenient and more in line with the size of my other portable chargers. Based on the specs, the Plus filled all my requirements. An added bonus was the Pass Through feature - the ability of the Plus charger to be charged when connected to an input power source while simultaneously charging devices connected to the USB output ports. I habitually wait until my phone is between 15-20% or lower before recharging it. The first day I used the Plus, I was able to obtain 2 full charges for my phone. There was one LED still lit on the Plus' indicator lights after the second charge. I plugged in the Plus that evening and let it charge overnight back to 100%. The next two days, the Plus was depleted when my phone reached 99% on the second charge. The day after those two days, I was only able to get one full charge and the Plus was depleted when my phone reached 72% on its second charge. Thinkng I had a defective unit, I exchanged the charger for another one. The second Plus performed in the same fashion - the first time I used it, I could charge my phone to full capacity twice before the Plus was depleted. The following days of usage of the Plus as a portable charger resulted in obaining only one full charge and less and less of power on the second charge. After the second week of using the second Plus, I was getting only one full charge. The second charge would charge my phone up to roughly 30-40% before the Plus was depleted. Totally not what I expected. I ended up returning the second Plus unit. My other chargers cover a capacity range of 6800 to 20000 mAh. I've owned them for quite some time and I have yet to experience any dropoff in charging functionallity or capacity (and, yes, I get at least two full charges of my phone out of all of them). The charger did live up to it's other features - supports fast-charging with both USB ports; the aforementioned Pass-Through feature; rugged case (although I think the flap that covers the ports is doomed to break off); the user-friendly carabinger clip; not slim but definitely lightweight. These are all excellent but the downside, for me, was the depleting charging capacity and, ultimately, I want a charger that can charge my phone at least twice on a continual basis. There are other chargers at an equal or lesser price, that, while lacking the much desired carabinger, can charge my phone twice, featurues dual USB output and supports fast charge for each USB output. PS...the Plus comes with a micro USB cord. You would be wise to invest in a better cord.

    So wonderful I bought several! This Adventure Portable Charger is absolutely perfect for my needs. And I was surprised at how quickly it was fully charged and ready to go. It came with quite a bit longer cord than I had expected, BC most are impossibly short. My husband used it on a flight from home with a layover, then on to Denver and had plenty of charge left. This tank has ample charge and wonderful features, 3 still isn't enough! I purchased it and the "selling feature" for me was the "Carabiner Clip", and the "Durable Rubberized Exterior". I am a person with several disabilities, one is neuropathy. So, I drop things constantly (and break them), and having the carabiner clip makes a great deal of difference to me. But I might add, the rubberized exterior is also incredibly convenient for people with all kinds of disabilities, people with different types of R.A., Fibromyalgia, Lupus, etc. BC when your extremities are starting to burn, or you are beginning to lose feeling, you have a greater chance of holding on to a device with a rubberized exterior! These maybe be small things "regular" people don't think about, but maybe they should. In cold climate, your hands may get numb, if your vehicle breaks down and you need help but you are far from any signal, hiking, or skiing, you might need extra charging power. Just trying to add some perspective for those who might need it. This product is a gem, and I wouldn't buy ANY OTHER TANK!

    Amazing rugged portable charger

    I purchased this MyCharge Adventure 6700mAh portable charger because it looks pretty decent and rugged for $40, and I am astonished about how this performs compared to other portable chargers like a overpriced mophie. It charges my IPhone 6S pretty fast (I will be testing a 0-100% charge and comment how long it takes on my IPhone 6S), feels really rugged and durable, and doesn't over heat! So far no complaints besides it only comes in orange, Other than that I would highly recommend all of you to buy this portable charger!

    I researched the size (mAh) that I thought I would need and decided on this one because I would be in Bali during the rainy season and wanted it to be water resistant and charge a few of my devices if necessary. This charger was great! Not only did it charge four devices on one charge, it charges devices fast. I used it to charge my iphone, my portable wifi, and other people's phones while out and about. I never drained the battery to empty, and only recharged it twice during my two weeks abroad. The size is slightly smaller than my small iphone se, (size of iphone 5) but a little thicker than it. The carabiner was very helpful on hikes.

    Best battery back in its class

    I purchased this pack before going on vacation and I’m glad I did. We are the type of people that stay out most of the day....you know, those 18 hour vacation days. When you’re on your phone taking videos, pictures, and well... checking your emails, the battery life on your phone will only last a short time frame. No FEAR!!! MyCharge battery pack is here. We were able to charge several devices with one full charge from the MyCharge battery pack. When we’re back at the hotel, it took a few hours to recharge the MyCharge battery back to 100%, then we are ready for the next day. This thing will charge ANYTHING that connects to a USB port to charge.

    This portable charger was a life saver this summer when my family took a trip to Disneyland. We were able to go all day to the parks and not have to worry about our phones losing power. With this device we were able to charge mine and my wife’s phone and still have power if needed. It was nice to be able to charge more than one device at a time also. This device was designed very well , and built to last. I really enjoyed that it is waterproof so if it got wet on one of the rides no need to worry and the carabiner clip made for extra ease of use when charging my phone by allowing me to just clip it to my belt loop. Great charger and well worth the money spent.

    The perfect portable battery!

    I love this battery, and I bought it mostly for my GoPro, it’s a Hero 4 and so it has a pretty short battery life. The battery holds its charge for quite a while and can fully charge my GoPro multiple times. What I really like too is that I can charge my phone as well. It has 2 USB ports so you can charge 2 devices at once. It’s small so it can fit in my pocket, and it has a carabiner so I can just clip it onto my pants belt loops. I’ve used this battery to charge both my GoPro and my phone during a concert, and it was pretty long concert, and the battery stayed mostly charged while maintaining the charge on both my devices. I definitely recommend this portable battery!

    Unknown reason for spontaneous complete discharge

    Specs wise this rugged battery charger looked perfect. I’ve charged it fully for the first time, right after I’ve bought it. However, arriving to my 30000 miles away flight destination, i found the device was completely drained off its charged power. Without even single phone charge used. I’ve charged it again yesterday, and I looking forward to hopefully changing my review to a “ Fluke Complete Discharge”. If not- I’ll be returning it it to the shop immediately following my return to town

    Bought this specifically for recharging my IPhone while hiking long distances. Use IPhone to track mileage, elevation, etc. and take pictures while hiking 8 to 15 miles. Normally phone battery runs down around 6 or 7 miles. I just hook battery charger to phone then and keep on hiking. It is small and compact, fits easily in my fanny pack, recharges phone quickly as I hike, and so far has not run out of charging ability while hiking. Very successful purchase! Even more important my phone is still charged if needed for emergency.

    I use my iPhone 7 plus a lot throughout the day and usually by mid day I am running low on battery, so I bought this charger and it has saved me plenty of times. This battery will charge my phone up to 3 maybe 4 times before I even need to charge the battery, so I would highly recommend the myCharge to anyone who runs low on battery and is often out and about with no place to charge their phone. My family and I went to Disneyland and because of this awesome battery I was able to capture all of the video and photos I wanted without my phone dying on me and missing out on great memories.

    Recently purchased and took the Adventure Plus 6,700 Portable Charger unit on vacation and it was very useful to use on many occasions I found myself out and about with both my iPhone and then my iPad on another day and needed a charge and it worked perfectly. Also a young lady on one of our flights experienced a dead phone and easily recharged from my unit before we reached our next destination. The price was right. BestBuy is always the Best. And yes I would recommend this charging unit to everyone.

    I am always on the go whether traveling for pleasure or just backpacking where I don't have acces to an they to charge my phone in the great outdoors. I have tried to charge my Samsung S7 phone on several occasions and it just doesn't seem to work it seems to drain the battery quicker. I have even tried turning off my phone and turn it in 30 minutes later to the same charge it was at before i started charging it. Many external portable chargers don't seem to work for my phone i have find only one that works but i have only tried 3 and from those only one seems to work

    After having bad past experiences with mycharge products I was kinda doubting this one when I was buying it buy but after some use of time now I can lie its a decent product not the best out there but it does serve its purpose. I have an s9 plus and I can get atleast 2 charges with this battery so thats okay with me its really portable so you can basically carry it in your pocket. Charges quick and has 2 usb ports. Not bad for $40 but not as good either...

    The myCharge Adventure series works great for throwing into your "back and forth to work" bag, which may at various times have dust or crumbs floating around. The ports all seal up nicely enough to keep all of that out. It feels sturdy enough to handle getting banged around. And, with capacity to spare, I can charge it up once and use it several times without getting near empty. The second port comes in handy to help your buddy, significant other, or kid top off at the same time.

    I got this for travel. I liked that it was a bit more rugged than others. It should be good for camping or biking where dust and a little water may be a factor. It is not completely waterproof of course, but the output and charging ports are covered by a thin rubber "door". The unit is a bit thicker with the rubber coating on it, but that is a tradeoff for its rugged construction. It is colorful which makes it easier to find in a crowded backpack or briefcase! it has indicator lights which help you know how much charge is left.

    Solid, rugged travel power source. The included carabiner is handy for attaching to a bag. I've used it for multiple trips now when we'll be outdoors, Rapid charging ability on Samsung phone. I've also used it many times to power GoPro cameras attached to a fence when filming sports, etc. It would be nice if you could avoid exposing the charging and the secondary port when those are not being used, but otherwise have been completely satisfied.

    The mycharge - Adventure Plus Charger does what it was advertised to do. Although it’s a little weighty, which might account for it not being as pricey as some chargers, I can throw it in my bag and not have to worry about it getting damaged. I used it twice to charge my phone and there was still some power left. It recharges faster than the one I previously had. I ‘ve had it for less than a month and I am satisfied with my purchase. So far, so good!

    perfect size for travel, have never actually been able to drain the charge on this thing before re-charging. I've gotten about 4 solid full charges for my Galaxy 7 Edge, before "topping" off the charge on the unit. Love having the peace of mind, ease of use, low profile unit to put my mind at ease while traveling, long nights out, or emergency situations should they arise.

    Got this for my wife, her iPhone 6 is always running out of power because she's always working on something on it. Be it rendering better pictures or playing a game. She's always using up power before the end of the day. She can take this power pack in her purse to work and recharge before she leaves work so she'll have music on her ride home! As far as usage, very compact and easy to use. It has plenty of power, enough for 2.5 iPhone charges I believe. Great gift I got for her and at a good price.

    I love the product and the security of knowing that the clip will be holding my power solution when I am taking lots of photos, etc. Cover over the ports to keep debris out is essential, but just wish it was some sort of slide instead so it didn't free hang when in use. Everyone I met was jealous as a walked around connected and at full charge throughout my events. Price could come down a little bit to make this a "great" buy.
