    One of the best products on the market

    This is the second one of these I've owned, and I can't recommend it enough. Frankly, I can't believe that more companies haven't adopted this completely self-contained design. Perhaps its best feature is that there's no need to search for cables. Everything you need is right there. Need to plug it in? Pop it straight into a wall jack. Need to plug in your phone? Pull out the built-in cables and you're ready to go. It's capacity is amazing--you can expect 4-6 full charges depending on your device, and the recovery speed is better than any other charger that I've used. A full charge can be achieved in around 30-45 minutes--faster if you switch to airplane mode. I've had my model for a number of years, and it holds up well and hasn't seemed to lose much in the way of capacity or speed with age. The only thing I'd suggest is being somewhat cautious with the cables. If you're trying to use your phone while it's plugged in, the cable can become bent or twisted, which, over time, will weaken it. (This is why I purchased a new one. Even so, my original still works perfectly.) Bottom line: This handy device has saved me more times than I can count. It's a bit on the spendy side but worth every penny, and there are similarly designed models from the company (with less capacity) that aren't as expensive. Great product.

    Does the trick, but not built to last

    Ive had the product for about a month now and at first I was amazed at how convenient it was. It worked great and kept me connected. The only immediately inconvenience was the ridiculously short wires make using your device while charging hilariously difficult. I am a police officer, so my office is an SUV. I dont have a flat level serface to place the charger where it can be stable. I often have to speed up, slow dow rapidly and take sharp turns. This causes my charger and phone to sway about in a cup holder, or seat where it usually sits, causing stress on the short wire connected to my phone. Just recently I've noticed the micro-usb plug and the charger wire are starting to come undone and I expect a failure very soon. In short, don't buy if you work anywhere that will place the device under any tension.

    all in all it’s a good idea. But the wire is too short for you to actually do anything while you’re on the charger it’s supposed to be portable because on the run I need to use my phone while it’s dying so that’s not really a good idea but the plug-in part where you don’t have to plug in the wire or find a box for you to use to charge it you can just stick it in the wall is a great idea and I really loved it really came in handy but all the trouble that the really short wires cost to me wasn’t worth it the price is that high because it has the wires and the plug in but you can get a regular one and use it wire up your own and have that same ability really so I end up returning this one and buying a regular one because the trouble it’s not worth it but if you really have trouble losing wires and boxes in charge is this the great product

    I wrote a glowing review of the smaller version of this portable charger (that one is the myCharger Hub Plus)... this one is EQUALLY AWESOME, but EVEN MORE SO!! Lasts longer by virtue of having more “juice” and it does have a little weight on it, but it is not extreme. Got me through a 3 night/4 day field trip to Orlando and these chargers were SO GOOD that they also took care of my daughter’s phone, as well as two other moms’ and their kids’ phones each full day in the parks!!! I HIGHLY recommend these portable chargers!!!! I was even able to keep 3 devices plugged in to the chargers and charge them overnight while the chargers were juicing up while plugged into a wall outlet!! DEFINITELY a “Best Buy!!!!!”

    This portable charger is the best thing I have found. I can use a USB cable or the two cables in it for either an iPhone or some other phone or GPS. My iPhone uses the Lyft application when I give rides and as the battery discharged from usage I lost the navigation to the ride’s final destination. I had to then turn my GPS on and ask the passenger for the final destination and inserted in the GPS. The USB slot in the car did not charge the iPhone. At Best Buy I found this battery charger and now I can gives rides without fear of a low battery. I have tried connecting my GPS together with the iPhone and after 5 hours of using it, the charger is still charged, not drained. I love my charger. It has taken my anxiety away. I do not have to stop giving rides and going home to charge the phone for about an hour. When the battery is about 32, I hook the USB cable to the charger and I can stay on the road longer giving rides.

    Was looking for a charger that would hold up and not like the $5 cheap portables that I had been using. $100 for a portable charger, is expensive for most, but when I can't fully charge my phone with just one $5 portable after my initial charge, then this one is worth it. My first real "wow moment" was when I saw that you literally need NOTHING extra. No cords, no plugs, NOTHING. This charger will plug directly into the wall with the attached prongs, then when charging your device, it has both a micro mini USB AND a lighting cord (apple) attached, plus an additional USB port if you would need to charge something that required a different cable. I have charged this device twice now, once after a week of only using my portable to charge my phone and the second time was three charges ago. I am due! But so far, works like a dream. 5.5 charges fits up to it's description!

    1.) High Storage Capacity: Ample Storage for charging phones, iPads and head phones multiple times each 2.) Convenient: Wires are connected already and no need to wrap cables around a device and carry extra cords. PLUS, the plug to charge it goes right into the wall, so there Really is no need for extra cords and the overall size is quite reasonable 3.) Versatile: We can charge all our apple devices plus android or any device that requires the same plug like the entire family’s Bluetooth headphone, drones and so many other things. Price is a bit high and definitely a downside, but based on comparable items(I have 3 other similar backup chargers and this is by far best), the Price/Value is there. Very happen and it’s been 2 months and zero issues with the device whatsoever.

    I love this charger. I bought it's close cousin a couple years ago, which was the 3,500ma version, and love it. It seems nearly impossible to find a charger that *reduces* the number of cords. The biggest win here is the built in wall plug in and the fact that the cords are built into the device. This easily charges an iPad as well as my iPhone - I can even do both at the same time by using the USB plug-in on the bottom of the battery back. Finish is rock solid and premium - only issue I've had is using an international power adapter or using the device on a flimsy wall outlet - it's a bit heavy, so it won't stay plugged in well if the outlet is too loose.

    Durable and No Parts to Lose

    I had an older version of this, circa 2013 I think and it held up to all kinds of abuse (was actually still working when I got rid of it after buying this, but had a lot of damage from abuse). This model offers an all in one solution for are Apple and Android devices with built in connectors, plugs directly into the wall to charge, and has greater capacity than my old model even though it is smaller. I love that I don't have to carry extra parts, wall chargers, adapters, etc. I think the benefits of that are worth a slightly higher price and larger footprint than the competitors. And there's still an extra USB outlet if you need something other than a lightening or micro USB connector.

    I got this HubMax about 3 weeks ago at my local Best Buy. At first I was hesitant cause of the price but, the associate pointed out it was on sale, $20 discount, that week. Now that I had been using it every day I realized I would had pay the full price, it worths every penny. I could recharge all my Apple devices, at once, without problem. I don't need to carry any cables making my purse an OCD friendly haven because, it has two built-in in addition to the USB port. It charges very fast. Plus, the built-in plug is ultra-convenient. I'm extremely satisfied and will advice anyone to get one.

    Issue with durability of product

    The My Charge portable charger was recommended by a co worker. I didn't mind investing in a product I believed would last me quite some time. Less than a month of usage and the wires on the charger began to shred. I was unhappy I was unable to exchange the product in a Best Buy store however, when I contacted MY Charge directly they quickly replaced the charger for me. I have not had further issues with the replacement charger. I would recommend this product simply because the company ensured I was given a replacement charger due to the defect on my original purchase.

    The charger is pretty amazing. I can get a couple of charges on my iphone 7 from a fully charged battery pack. Super convenient that the plug and cables are built in. The bad thing is when the phone is connected and charging, it's in a wonky position. The cable is pretty stiff and I'm worried that I'll end up breaking it just carrying it in my purse as my phone is charging. Overall, I think it's a great product, but would love to see some sort of change to the cable.

    The ability to plug the charger in to the wall to recharge it with the included folding prongs is convenient. The lightening, micro USB cables that are part of the charger means I don't need to carry extra cords with me. The USB port means I can charge my laptop[ as well. It came 3/4 charged and I have only used it once so far but it worked as expected. We'll see over time how it holds up but the silver casing seems strong so even bumps shouldn't harm it!

    Went to SF for a weekend and knew I would be out most of the days exploring so I needed to keep my phone charged. I liked this option because it has all the cables for your phone already attached . Where as most chargers need you to bring your own lightning cable and that just is a pain because it’s long and you don’t have space for that. This charger also had a wall plug attached so I could charge it on the go! HOW PERFECT IS THAT! Love it so much, it was perfect for my trip

    When fully charged its good for up to 3 and half charges of my iPhone 6 maybe a little more. The fact the it comes with a lightning conector and a mini USB conector as well as regular wall male conecion to charge it. Make it all you need to carry for your battery needs . The only thing I wish they could work on it is making it a little les bulkier . And the price a little expensive but wort it.

    My cellphone battery only last 7-hours after a full charge. I was going to a convention and could not use the facility's outlets to charge my phone. I purchased this product and I was able to extend my cellphone until the end of the day. In addition, I used the charger to boost my iPad's use as well. The cellphone could be recharged 100 percent. However, the iPad recharged to 60-70 percent. The iPad does not consume as much power as the cellphone and the recharge of the iPad is adequate under the circumstances.

    I bought the HUBMAX portable charger as a replacement for a old first-gen charger that was no longer working (I forget the brand name). I used it to charge an iPhone 6s at a football game. I was able to go from 50% to 80% in approximately one hour, and my friend was also able to do the same with her iPhone 7 right afterwards. I also liked that it had external retractable prongs to plug straight into an outlet as opposed to a USB cable.

    ...I never saw her face again. She had her phone in one hand and her power bank in the other 24/7. She loved it. She really liked the built in AC wall plug and the built in lightning cable. My sister saw how nice it was and wound up buying one for herself. I would reccomend it to anybody looking for a REALLY SLEEK power bank that holds a good long charge.

    Omg I'm very picky and I love this charger! It has a long battery life and super charges your phone very quickly. PRO:Whats amazing about this product is that it automatically turns itself off when you unplug it from your phone or the wall jack...so it saves its battery life. CON: Not really a con...but as a reminder..when you plug your phone into this charger TURN THE CHARGER ON ..IT DOESNT KNOW TO START CHARGING UNLESS YOU TURN IT ON. OUTSTANDING PRODUCT...A TRUE LIFESAVER!!!

    Between friends and foes, having a charger laying around can cause you headache both in the workplace and at home. This has provided relief to where i can keep it in my pocket or my bag and always throw my phone on it when i need to and never have to worry about pulling a cord from my car or home to be snagged up by a loser who needs one.
