    Gets dirty too quick

    This power bank is great for the price of $24. 8,000 mah seems like a reasonable amount of juice for that price range. The only issues of this power bank though is it could of been a bit smaller frame considering there isn’t that much mah in this power bank, and it’s supposed to be easy to cary around with you not complicated. And the most annoying part that it gets dirty way too quickly. The second I opened it from the packaging and touched it, it immediately got fingerprints and oily from its surroundings. It looked like I been using it for years in a matter of seconds. Maybe in the future make it of better materials or fingerprint resistant materials

    Great Charger

    I bought this charger when it went on sale. I dunno why I haven't purchased a device charger before as it is a must have item. The sync cable that comes with the device is pretty tiny that is the only negative thing I can say about the device. I like the fact that this model has two charging outlets and the charging speed on this model is faster which helps. The size of this model is still small enough to fit in coat pockets or pants. Its a little over a half inch smaller than an iPhone plus model. I would also recommend finding a battery charger with the ac adapter already builtin but this serves my purpose. I had another issue but I do not know if it related to the battery brand. I charged the battery with an apple ac adapter and the apple ac adapter quit working. I tired another apple ac adapter and that one stopped working as well. I thought it was strange. However, after several days of not using the apple adapters they started to work again so it hard to say if it is related or coincidence.

    Quit charging

    After about 7 months, it quit charging. I have a smaller Pocket Juice with the same charging cable, so I tried it. Still wouldn’t charge. The smaller Pocket Juice charged fine with either cord. I tried a number of different USB ports and chargers. It will not charge. It had a half charge still on it, so I decided to plug it into my phone and completely deplete it and try to charge it. It still won’t charge. It worked great, when it worked. Now it’s worthless. For the heck of it, I took it back to BestBuy. Naturally, they washed their hands of it. I don’t blame BB. Only thing I can do is spend the money to send it back to the manufacturer. Or buy another. I’ll buy another. Another brand. $30 is too much to spend for something that works only a few months. I’ll try my luck with a different brand.

    I use this to power a Rasberry Pi mini retro gaming computer and a 9" portable monitor simultaneously for my portable gaming setup. That right there should tell you something about the battery's capability. I bought this one specifically because the usb power adapter that I use to plug in the monitor is bulkier than your average usb plug, so I needed ample space between the two ports which this provides. I get ample playing time using this battery with it's dual purposes. I haven't run out of power, however I recharge it after almost every use. The most I have ever used it at once is a couple of hours, and it still had life, but considering I was running a small computer and monitor off of it, that's pretty great.

    Given the preponderance and Apple products out there, the small USB couplet on the cable should be made to match Apple products such as the iPhone, or at a minimum they should include two couplets, one for Androids and one for Apple, Also, a plug would be helpful. I bought it for a trip where I didn’t plan to take my laptop ... hence why I wanted additional power for my iPad ... but the product didn’t have any way of being plugged into a wall outlet for charging. And of course iPads don’t get plugged into the wall. More and more products are being sold without the plugs ... obviously to cut costs (and increase profits.). If this continues no one will be giving a plug with their device and we’ll be buying them separately. Please just give us a plug for all the money we spend on these things.

    I purchased this product because I had another one in which I lost in the airport so I ended up going back to Best Buy to buy the same charger that I had last time since previous one worked so perfectly before. After over two weeks of using the device I noticed that the device itself wouldn’t hold a charge nor would even charge my iphone 7 at all. I tried emailing the manufacturer twice and no one ever responded to my request. Poor device and even more poor customer service. Now I’m currently using the device as a paper weight since it won’t charge my phone any longer.

    One Star for Customer Service

    I would give this product two starts because it does half of what it is supposed too. The problem is, it can only charge half the time because the charge cord doesn't work properly. No other issues charging any other phones in household with any other cords. If you move just slightly, it will stop charging and constantly 'dings'. I contacted company because I have only had the product a very short time and website states it has a one year warranty. It has been well over a week and have received no correspondence except initial e-mail they would reply back within 3 business days. Product was recommended by Best Buy employee.

    Current sale price makes this worthwhile.

    If it weren't for the current half price sale on all big capacity (meaning they have 2 charging ports) then this would have been a 4 star product. It kinda goes against the philosophy "you get what you pay for" due to the current in store sale on this brand. Overall, Pocket Juice chargers are a solid product that I and my friends have had before and this one lives up to expectations. Ridiculously short cord (literally only 2-3 inches long), but that's really the one and only complaint about this. Works as good as any other charger I've had before, plus a good capacity and 2 charge ports and well under $20 (even after taxes) mean this is simply totally worthwhile. Definitely recommend.....especially if you can get one while the current sale is in effect.

    I bought this before my trip across the states. I was skeptical because the last one I had didn't hold a charge for long. This one is great. Not only does it hold its charge, it holds it for a long time. The longest Ii've gone without using it was a month and a half. I needed it the other day but was worried it had died. Nope! Charged up my Note 4 within an hour. And this was while I was working out in 35 degree weather. I also love the size. It's very slim and fits nicely in most purses and in my back pocket. The only downfall is the cord. It's very short and frays after a bit of use.. Wish the cord was made an inch or two longer. I gave a four only because the cord..

    I bought this charger to take with me in a trip to NYC. It was flawless charging both a Samsung and apple phone at the same time. Unfortunately after using this that weekend and one other time the micro USB (which is used to charge the actual device) came loose and left me with a hole in the side of the charger. The piece is stuck on the inside of it just shaking around. It had a very tight it while use of it. Had this not dismantled a month into it, it would absolutely be a 5 star rating. I filed a ticket with the mnfg. and am waiting to hear back from them. Would be thrilled with a replacement just because it was great. I am hoping mine having a clean break was a fluke.

    Went to Alaska for several weeks and took a couple of pretty standard battery packs with me because I knew that there would be times where recharging was not possible. I had broken my cell phone a couple of days before I left and didn't have time to order extra batteries. I thought that the cells I had would be enough. They weren't. With sparse cell service, it really taxes your equipment and batteries. On my return, I ordered the additional batteries and also went to Best Buy to see what they had in portable chargers. Got one 7800 and one 8000 on sale at really good prices. They recharge my units really quickly!

    Decent Cell Battery Charger

    My old cell phone wouldn't keep a charge for more than a few hours, so I started keeping a battery around with me. One day, while on a trip, I noticed that the old spare battery, when plugged into my car, started smelling, so I realized it was getting worn out. I stopped at a Best Buy at our vacation spot and purchased this unit. It was very reasonably priced and worked well for my phone until I purchased a new one with a much longer battery life. I've still got this battery around just in case!

    The product is excellent, works exactly as advertised...except that the "manual" (a very small, tightly folded piece of paper) fails to mention that you just do a quick tap to turn it on while you hold down the button consistently to turn it off. I couldn't get it to come on at first (though it would charge), so I went back to Best Buy to figure out what to do. The store associate was very helpful (and didn't laugh), but this lack of understanding made me feel like I was not connected to this century. Had the manual not been so unclear, this product would have gotten the full 5 stars.

    Used this out knocking doors during the election season--reassuring to always have that juice. Phone jumps very quickly from 5 to 50%. It does display its own current charge level, but it's not very blatant about letting you know it's about to die. A red light when it's on its last charge would be super helpful, but as long as you know to plug it in when it gets down to one or two blue lights on its charge meter, you should be fine.

    Quickest charging available from a bank!

    Posted
    Monty

    I use this for my S8, meaning I can receive up to 2.6 charges from this bank while taking advantage of its very quick 3.4A charging current, meaning I get the same charge times from this as I would from a wall outlet. The product is made of really good quality materials, but in case that isn't enough for you this has an affordable 2 year Geek Squad protection plan available which will help keep your mind at ease, should anything go wrong with it.

    Got this to replace another older Morphi (brand) unit. It came fully charged and I've been able to recharge my Motorola Turbo to 100% twice now with indicator showing only 50% of battery used. Looks like I will get the full 4 charges promised in the literature. Simple to operate even for a techno-peasant such as myself. I like the USB - mini USB short cable. Long cables just get in the way. It's a great little device for backup battery emergencies.

    used it for 1 month before writing this review. liked it because of its very low weight, well built quality and almost the same length as iPhone but just a little bit thicker than iPhone but very manageable and dependable charger. two USB high speed outputs. most importantly you can comfortably connect it to iPhone plus via USB and hold both you iPhone and this charger without feeling too much weight. Also the charger has a smooth rubberized surface so it will not scratch your iPhone when you hold both of them together.

    I have bought 2 Tzumi chargers before this one and they worked great. Unfortunately, this one only works if you never move. When it is plugged into the phone and you happen to pick up your phone or even move the charger the slightest, it will turn off. I am very upset that this happened because again I had 2 others and loved them. Hope you won’t have the same issues because these chargers can get expensive buying over again.

    It does the job

    Fully charged it does the job. A handful if you want to carry it while walking with your iPhone in hand. They recommend to charge your smart device while you are not using it. Good advice. However, I put mine in a pocket, backpack, etc. (jacket or coat or purse for ladies) and plug it. Obviously, this way it takes longer to fully charge your smart device. Do use the provided USB cord it is short and the unit recharges faster. It is sturdy, don't ask me how I know. Good price. Don't forget to carry your dedicated lightning cable for your iPhone.

    With the latest app craze hitting home, we needed a portable battery for our phones to keep the hunting going throughout the day. This battery does the job well and has enough juice to give us three full charges while we roam the parks and beaches searching for the elusive rares. The only issue I have is that the charge time does seem a bit long but considering that it isn't used every day, it's really not a big issue at all. With scouting starting up and all the camping we'll be doing, I'm planning on getting a lot more use out of this battery.
