    Your power bank seems fine. Assuming 80% efficiency, you should be able to charge your phone around 2.7 times. That figure can be reduced if you're using you phone while charging. Happy holidays!

    i already have tons of power banks because i stash them here and there and have given them to my wife, sister, daughter, etc., but there was no way i was not going to buy this very familiar looking power bank that i saw last night at the metrowalk tiangge. if apple had built a power bank, it would look like this, down to the details at the bottom, the fonts, the packaging, and of course the overall design. and of course, it's named "iPower," ha ha ha!

    it's rated at 12,000 mAh, but it's very light and just a bit bigger than an iPhone 4, so it's really handy. (now i just have to check if it really works!) it cost me P1,200 but what the heck, it's probably the cuteness i'm paying for!

    it's just like a bar of soap in my hand:

    I just lack EQ and self-restraint. Hahahahaha!

    I couldn't decide if I should get the E4 or the Pro2, so I got one each. [emoji23] usb car charger, a few 5 port desktop chargers, and some cables.

    Hi,

    Sorry if I can't read the whole thread since I am leaving already today for Hong Kong. Anyway, can I just ask for your help since I need to get a powerbank with the following in mind:

    1) As light as possible (this is the most important factor for me)
    2) Smaller form factor would be a plus
    3) Has at least 8000mAh
    4) Price is no concern (i can budget around P3,000+ as long as its light and reliable)
    5) Has 2x USB ports
    6) Has at least 1x 2.1A output (2x would be nice)
    Note: I will be charging an iphone 6 plus and an ipad air 2 at the very least

    With these in mind, what is the best power bank to get? I'm not really interested in the best bang for the buck or that it is good since it is very cheap. I want something with lots of quality even if I need to pay a premium price. Note that I will purchase the unit in Hong Kong so the choice is not limited to what's available in the Philippines. Just tell me your top3 and I will search it out in Hong Kong.

    Thanks!

    Thanks
