Ordered on 12 / 2015. Used tens of times. Still full power on October 2017. Writing this review as my power case purchased in July 2016 has just died on me. The only issue is the location / length of the built in cord that is too short for convenient handling
Easy to carry and charges phone fast.
Super compact, pleasant to hold in hand or pocket
Works very, very well. Super compact, pleasant to hold in hand or pocket. Convenient, heavy duty built-in cable.

The in place cable/connector don't fit to charge a device in the packet.
Decent battery, strange connector placement.
This batter charges my phone twice, which seems about right given the capacity. Construction feels pretty solid.
The only issue I have is the built-in micro-usb connector. Its placement means that when plugged into my phone, I can't just hold the battery behind the phone. The battery either has to be rotated, or be offset, which makes using the phone while plugged in slightly awkward.
Bought it for my ADSB receiver, but my GF ...

Bought it for my ADSB receiver, but my GF uses it more to keep her phone charged, maybe I should have gone with the one that has a lightning cable attached.
Compact and hidden cable!

Love the slim design, unlike many other chargers. Easy to fit anywhere. Hide-away USB cable is a great feature
Would Highly Recomend

Best portable charger I have found. Love that the plug cord is attached. so easy to use and strong for repeated charge.
Pass through charging, excellent engineering
I'm very pleased with this charger. The captive power cord seems nice and sturdy, and my Android detects it as an actual charger (fast) not a USB port (slow).
A *very* nice feature is the fact that it supports pass-through charging -- unlike many chargers, this unit will actually charge your device, and then itself, while plugged into your charger... which means it's a perfect "UPS" for a Raspberry Pi... it will keep the Pi running for several hours during a power outage, and when power returns, it starts topping itself off again.
Brilliant engineering design.
The flashlight is a neat extra bonus.

Good battery, small size for the capacity. Reasonable price.
Rugged unit. My biggest problem is that I keep giving them away.
by J. E. Noynaert17/08/2017
I carry this unit daily, and they hold up well to bouncing around in my pants pocket. I am on my third one. I have given the other two away. I gave one to friends who had a family member on an extended hospital stay. The other I gave to a friend I took to the airport, and he did not have a power bank for his trip. I just got an email from him saying the batter was a life-saver. I kind of doubt I will be getting it back; I think he is in love.
The flashlight is a nice touch. It isn't extremely bright, but it is adequate for close-up work, like if you drop something and are looking for it under chairs and tables. It has been responsible for recovering car keys several times.
The cable is very stiff. It can be award to hold it behind the phone while you use the phone, but I usually can make it work.
Great Customer Service
This product does the job. You get one full charge with 3 lights, and the last 2 lights gets a half charge. Just a couple months ago, my powerbank just stopped working, as the charging light would not turn on, and I was glad my purchase still fell under warranty; I emailed the company and got a new one sent to me and it is doing well. I only gave it a 4 because I feel like charging the bank is long, as well as charging my phone takes a while. But I'll update if there's a change.
Cheaply made, didn't last
UPDATE: 08/11/17- After giving this a bad review, the seller contacted me via email and offered to give me a new one, as the old one was apparently defective. I accepted the offer, and received my new external battery yesterday. I haven't had time to test out the sturdiness of the micro charging head. Only time will tell. I was very impressed with their customer service, even though the window of return had expired. So, I am updating my review to a four star.
I have had this since June 1, 2017. Now, a week ago, the micro USB head came off of the charging line, sticking into my phone. I have always been very careful when connecting and disconnecting. I am not pleased with the longevity of this product. I can still charge my phone using a micro USB cable, but who wants to lug one of those around, too?
Perfect so far.
It's Fantastic! Buy it!
This battery packs a Lot of Power! It has five LEDs that rather accurately show the charge on the battery. It's very versatile. It has a built-in USB Micro connector cable and a USB outlet to connect any other type of USB cable to. I like it so much that I plan on buying a second one! I Highly Recommend this battery!
