    Decent charger but can have wall plug issues

    This is the 3rd one that I have purchased. It is compact, solid, and provides the convenience of two approximately 3" attached cords that are housed in protective recessed slots that pivot out for usage and then can easily be returned. Each cord has a dedicated connector tip to either the android or apple phones or tablets. The unit itself recharges relatively quickly (approx 60 minutes for complete recharge) and charges phones completely within the same amount of time. The unit has a built in wall charger "flip out" plug. There is also a 4 indicator light that indicates the charge level of the unit. The fact that the wall charging plug and the cords are attached and can completely recess back into the unit are huge pluses. No need to ever worry that you forgot a cord or the cord getting tangled. Although there are much more powerful charging units out there, I find this one (at 6700) adequate for my needs, but especially compelling are the convenience factor of the built-in wall plug and attached charging cords. However, the reason that I am giving the device only 3 stars is that, over time, the wall plugs can become loose (wobbly) and not want to work in unison when attempting to plug the unit into the wall (has now happened to both of my other units and I am always very careful with them). You may have to prop up the two tips with your finger to hold them in place when angling them into the wall socket slots. This isn't just challenging, it could cause a shock. This really should be addressed by the manufacturer and the reason why I am reluctant to endorse the product.

    HubPlus 6700 - heavy, but handy

    The myCharge HubPlus 6700 is slightly larger than a deck of playing cards. It comes with two attached charging cables - one with a lightening connector (e.g., iPhone) and one with a micro-USB (e.g., many devices and phones, but NOT Apple), as well as a USB female slot. So you could, theoretically, charge three devices at the same time - assuming two of them required a different one of the available connectors, and you were carrying a USB cable to use with the third device. The HubPlus 6700 is a bit heavy, but that's because of it's 6700 mAh charge capacity - you can get lighter portable chargers with less capacity. My other portable charger was smaller and lighter, but required a USB-port power source for recharging, so not always convenient to recharge. What I like about the myCharge HubPlus is it uses a regular wall-outlet charging plug. So if I'm traveling without my computer and need to recharge my HubPlus, I can just flip open the plug and plug it into an available 120VAC outlet. I never leave home without it, and always take it when I travel. The built-in charging cables are a bit short (~3" to the end of the connector), but that's to make them store snugly into the side of the charger when not in use. Much longer and they would hang out. However, they are a bit awkward to maneuver after attaching a device - for example, I like to sandwich this unit with my iPhone while charging it, and that requires the cable to twist in a direction counter to it's natural orientation. Not a biggy, but if they moved the power switch, which is currently on the same side face as the built-in cables, it might give them an extra 1/2 inch of cable space. Disclaimer - I don't know what the inside looks like, so it may be that moving the power switch would not be practical.

    EXCELLENT PORTABLE PHONE CHARGER

    I purchased one of these, as well as the myCharge Hub Max 10,050 for a field trip to 3 Disney parks in Orlando. They worked FANTASTICALLY! They kept my phone charged, as well as my daughter’s, two other moms’ and their kids’ phones during our full days in the parks! I also loved that I could plug them into the wall outlets back at the hotel to re-charge these, while at the SAME time re-charging 3 phones that were plugged into the myCharge portable chargers!!! I recommend these to everyone!!! These myCharge Hub Plus and Hub Max portable phone/tablet chargers are DEFINITELY a “Best Buy!!!!” Oh, and they lasted a good part of the day considering how many phones were using them... of course the Hub Max lasted longer by virtue of being bigger. But I want you to know they do have a little weight to them, nothing extreme, but they are not like those little itty bitty 1-charge portable doodads. These are worth their weight in gold! Even on the long charter bus ride back to NC!

    I am a nurse who makes visits to homes and Facilities and in the past I have had to carry two cheap battery charger packs and cords to plug into the Cigarette lighter port in my car. Most of You who are road Warriors like myself know that you Carry enough stuff in your car you don’t need a bunch of cords and plugs. This product is awesome. I can throw it in my backpack and it takes up hardly any space. I plug it in when I go to sleep Then when I wake up and I am ready for work I simply unplug it and flip down the prongs and I’m ready to go and I can charge my phone at least twice if not three times. Plus it has a USB port if I need that I’ve had to charge my Fit Bit before and it worked perfectly. I cannot say enough great things about this product. I show it to every nurse that I work with and tell them they need it!

    I had previously owned another model purchased on-line and my son “borrowed” and never returned. While I was picking up wireless chargers for my new iPhone, I saw Best Buy sold this brand and grabbed another. I travel a lot for work, so it is imperative that I have additional battery packs, I have been caught in the past, stuck in an airport due to delays and all charging stations are packed, and travelers are camped around any and all electrical outlets! After having this happen a time too many, I started buying battery storage packs for travel. I like this one since the outlet adapter is attached, as are a lightening cord and micro usb plugs. Normally I also have my phone in a Mophie Juice Pack case, which requires the micro usb plug, but they haven’t come out with one for the iPhone X. When they do, I will be prepared with both the lightening for my iPad and micro usb for iPhone in Juice Pack.

    I was on my way to ACL festival and would be gone all day without an extra charge, so I stopped by Best Buy to grab a charger. After fussing with less expensive chargers and cords over the years, I was attracted to the features of this item. I bit the bullet and paid the $79. Totally worth it. I love that you don’t need any extra cords, and charging is fast. I can get almost a full charge (1 - 100) in about 15-20 minutes. It’s not the smallest charger, and it adds 7 ounces to your backpack, but it is fast and reliable, and I was glad to have it at the all-day festival.

    I've had this product for 3 months, and it's definitely worth the money. I spend long hours away from an outlet and I need to make sure my phone is fully charged at all times. It charges relatively fast and allows up to 3 full charges in one day for my iPhone 6, without the charger itself having to be recharged. I sometimes use it to charge my iPad, and it works great. I love the versatility of being able to charge Samsung products too, which I've done. Plus, it has a USB input which is an even added benefit. I love that its length and width are both smaller than my phone. What's even better is that it doesn't require it's own separate electronic cord to charge it. You just plug the charger itself directly into the wall. No wires needed!! It's definitely a great Christmas gift for any adult, male or female. I'm buying it for my sister who tells me often that she didn't get my call bc her phone was dead. No more excuses, Sis!

    Serves the purpose... not very many charges.

    I previously had a pocket juice charger that was amazing. Could charge the iPad 4 times and my iPhone 7 times. Then they stopped selling the pocket juice with the built-in wall plug so I bought this one when my pocket juice got broken. It charges my phone MAYBE 4 times and is usually pretty well wiped out after 1 time charging the iPad. Maybe 1.5 charges on the iPad at best? I do like the size and that the cords are built in to it but they are extremely short so if you need to talk on the phone while charging it's awkward or you need to use speakerphone/Bluetooth headphones. Plus it gets turned on in my bag easily and the battery runs down even faster that way. So all in all... it serves its purpose and charges phones very fast but, for the price, I was very disappointed in the length of its battery life and cords.

    I bought this quickly while on a trip across the country so I didn't read any reviews before. I think I got a great unit. It plugs right into the wall without having to plug it into a USB a wall plug. It has a USB port on it to plug in your own cord, but also has the built in lightning cord and built in mini USB cord. Note: you have to plug in your device and then push the battery button on the device to get it to start charging. You can plug it into the wall and charge your phone while the unit is charging, so on a vacation you don't need another wall charger to carry around. It's great to grab and go without needing any other cords. The only drawback is the cords are very short, so your phone has to sit on top of this while charging. When used on the iPad while watching a movie, I had to stand the unit up on end so the cord would reach the iPad plug! Charges the phone quickly and no problems for me!

    Love this because you don't have to think about the cable. It's built in. Also, it charges quickly and a lot (you can possibly get two full charges from a fully charged unit). The only down side is that if you let the charger hang from your device (can you say walking around Poke hunting?) the charge tip will start to separate from the cables - it doesn't really affect the charging ability, but I'm not sure how safe it is, and the cable doesn't store back cleanly when it's a bit too long. But all in all it's a great charger. ALSO, if the i-phone goes to the USB-C in the next version, you'll need a separate cable. The good news about that is that it has a USB slot so you can get one.

    Portable Charger

    This product has been extremely handy given the amount of travel I do. I am a person that is “on the go” via public transportation and such a lot. I love that this charger has the built in wall outlet. The cords included within it are handy for charging a device while also charging the charger itself. However, the cords are extremely short and do not extend or retract. This is a design flaw yet the only critique I have. A suggestion would be for the design to include a built in carabiner for clipping to backpack or belt loops. Good buy overall but the design flaw does cost it a star.

    We have traveled a fair amount in the past year with this and it works great! Its tough. It has last us long and thats saying something for someone who is able to break every technology that crosses my hands. Anyways, It gives you double the regular battery of your phone and more. I like that it has two different types of cables because all you need is this and your phone to survive at least a few days without actual power. Thats if your not using it a lot, but if you are like me and like to take a lot of videos and photos, well I survived from 10 am to midnight in Disney.

    I bought this during during a Black Friday sale about one or two years ago, it charges faster than any of the other portables that I’ve had before. Everyone who has used my portable has been shocked at how fast the charge is. I love the 3-in-1 thing they have going on. They have the wall plug, and apple and android chargers. However, I do wish the charger itself could be less block like and more flat so it’s easier to hold onto. The apple cord started showing the wires because I guess I wasn’t super careful with it, but eventually, the cord stopped working so I switched over to a more flatter portable.

    I have bought 4 of there style in various sizes all with lightening (iPhone charger) and micro USB. The best thing about this brand and style is that you always have everything you need to charge it and also to use it for multiple devices, also has a full size USB that can be used for an additional output to charge another type of device other than lighting or micro USB. Yes, there are faster charging devices but they only help you if you don’t lose or misplace all of the various adaptors needed to use most others on the market. I noticed they do have the rapid charging models for non lightning versions.

    I got this because everything you need is attached to the unit. If you're like me you'll lose the power adapter and cord to charge it or you'll have the charger with you but not have the proper connector to charge your device. This unit solves all of those problems. When you want to charge it you flip up the plug prongs and plug it in. The diodes will flash and tell you how much juice you have . Then it has the lightning cord and micro usb cord on the side. Pull out which one you need and you're in business. I love it for the convenience of having everything integrated into one easy to use unit.

    I bought this to use for my Samsung Galaxy S7 phone & Apple iTouch. I love that it has the built-in cord connections for both plus a USB port. Not having to tote around extra cords is a huge plus. My phone was older & so the battery would barely last the workday. I listen to music on my iTouch all day at work, so this helps with that on the days I forget to charge it. I can charge either item over a few days & still not have to charge the charger. It holds a lot of battery life & I would recommend it.

    The metal casing means I can throw it in my carry on, the wall plug makes it easy to charge and the built-in cords means no futzing with separate USB cords. I DO wish there was a simple way to attach the charger to my phone (since the cord is only a few inches long) but I’ve been using a hair tie to keep them together and plugged in while I’m walking through the airport or while it’s in my bag. The dual micro USB and apple attachments means I have my android friends covered, too, without separate cords.

    I like that the charger has everything together...the wall plug and phone attachment are part of the charger so no need to remember anything! It also has a USB option so you're able to charge more than one item at a time! The only thing I wish was different...I wish the attached cord to plug my phone into was a little bit longer...A retractable cord (even just a few more inches) would be helpful. I really do like this though...and the short cord length wouldn't stop me from buying this charger.

    This is the most convenient portable charger ever. It comes with both USB and lightning cable built-in. It has a built-in wall charge so you never have to worry about cables. It charges fast. I have an Iphone 6 plus and it can charge it twice from 10% power on the phone. The only small negative is the built in cables are a little short, but it is not a huge deal. It is still a great portable charger.
