    It's just ok

    I like the idea of this charger but performance isn't all that great, I often find myself plugging my phone into the charger instead of using the wireless option. My biggest issue with the battery is that it stops charging my phone after 5-10 minutes. So I will put my phone (it happened with my Note9 and now with my iPhone XS Max) on the charger with 30% battery, wait a few hours, and my phone will be at 35% only to discover that the battery turned itself off. However, if I keep my phone's screen on, the battery will continue charging my phone. It's just easier to plug my phone in and call it a day. I ended up moving the battery to my office as a backup and now have a different one (a higher capacity battery that can charge my phone, tablet, and notebook) that I use for traveling. Right after buying this, Tzumi came out with an updated wireless charger that's white. It might address the issue I had with this battery. I can't really recommend it when an Insignia branded battery will do the same once you plug your device into it. The whole point of this charger is to use it as a wireless option, something I could just set my phone down on, but it shuts off after a few minutes.

    Great charger for the sale price of $29.99...

    Some complained it took too long to charge up. It charges quickly to the full 100% power. Just make sure you use the included USB charger. I plugged mine into the USB port on my MacBook Pro. Also, I have the iPhone 8 Plus with an Otterbox Defender case and it charged easily right thru the double layer case. So I am very happy with it. It's only 5,000 mAh so it charges my phone twice before needing another charge. I especially like the fact that is has a digital percentage indicator showing exactly how close it is to being 100% charged or depleted. Nice product. Got mine on sale for $29.99. Money well-spent.

    Waste of money

    Had high hopes for this thing since it came highly recommended and the features (if they worked) sounded great. Unfortunately, the battery itself takes forever to charge and then when used to charge your device it looses charge incredibly quickly and leaves you still not fully charges. Super duper hard to balance your phone on it for the wireless feature - if a light breeze goes by your phone isn’t charging anymore and you don’t know if for hours - you basically need tot babysit it. So much promise/potential with very little delivery - wish I could return it honestly.

    It does the job with a caveat

    Was needing a wireless charging solution and this one seem to fit the bill. Because it is wireless it will never be faster than plugging it in, but it does provide a wireless alternative without dealing with cumbersome cords, etc. What I would wish it would do (hence why I docked a star) is being able to charge my phone while it's charging. That way it's just one cable to mess with. Other than that, having the LCD screen is a nice bonus.

    Wireless Charging!

    This pocket juice is dynamic! It can not only be used with a USB cord to give your device a quick battery boost, it also supports wireless charging if you have a compatible device, like my iPhone XR, to charge right in your pocket! Just turn on the pocket juice and put it in your pocket with your phone and it will charge. The pocket juice is this so your pocket won’t bulge unnecessarily.

    I purchased this after a recent power outage. I was able to charge my iphone and my apple watch at the same time. I charged it once and left it in my coat pocket for future use just in case I ever needed it again. Several weeks later I checked the battery life and it was still at 100 percent. I was so impressed I purchased another on to give away for a Christmas gift.

    Me and my wife love this charger. In our opinion it is the best bang for your buck. We like being able to charge 3 devices at once (1 wirelessly and 2 plug in). We really like the digital display for the battery level. Also I can't speak for other protection cases but this charger will charge wirelessly even with OtterBox Defender case on our Google Pixel 3 XLs.

    The PocketJuice does just what it says it will, and is very handy to have around. I do wish I had gotten the bigger one, but I also have the iPhone XS Max which takes a little more to charge. Charges great both wirelessly and with the cord. My only gripe is that my phone slides off of it both with and without the case. Overall a good charger though!

    I like this because I can either sit my phone on it, or I can plus a usb in it charge it directly from this, the first time, the charge was slow, the second time, the charge was a little faster. But still not good enough for it to be even a 4 star

    Purchased as a gift for my spouse who is constantly running out of phone power. It's easy to use and keeps the phone charged. The only way it could be better is if it was a fast wireless charger. My spouse uses it in a large case which holds it against the phone. No problems so far!

    I did not like this, i ended up returning just because it wasn't what i needed. i replaced it with a stand up wireless charger that i could stand my phone up on at my desk. I bought it under the recommendation of a sales guy at Best Buy

    I've only needed to use it once or twice so far, but this charger is nice to have as a backup. Of course it isn't going to charge very quickly, but the convenience of wireless is great, especially during air travel.

    This charger is sleek and cute but not worth a dime. Charges fast but looses power almost instantaneously. Doesn’t even fully charge my iPhone XS Max once. Waste of money. I hate it.

    I look forward to using this power pack on the golf course this summer. I have a golf gps app that drains the battery pretty quickly and this will allow me to recharge my phone mid round.

    I purchased this item thinking that I could use it as a charging station but you can't have it plugged in and charge your phone at the same time. So that was disappointing but it functions well outside of that.

    Not the best portable charger that I have used. It falls quite short of expectations for a wireless Qi charger. It does not hold a charge for long and is very sensitive to device positioning. I would not buy again.

    Very eazy to use I really like the power display it’s nice & eazy to read @ a glance and you can change up to 3 Devices at the same time 2 via USB & 1 via wireless Charging. And it’s nice and slim;)

    This is a great power bank! Bought it to go on vacation and it worked excellent. We were even able to charge two devices at once because my wife use the wireless charger on her iPhone 8.

    With current cellphones batteries like the iPhone X or Galaxy's S10 or Note 9, This is not a fast charger or it holds enough to power multiple device or multiple time.
