Hahahaha, you have got to be kidding, right, Meh? These are close to the crappiest power banks that are still being sold, by anyone, anywhere! And all the others on here expressing the same thought, i.e. these are worth less than half the price you’ve put on them, are being generous to you. This is a crap product at a crappy price, not even up to “Meh” standards. Blergh.
On Amazon these are almost 80 bucks but notice only five left in stock I guess because they’re selling so well "NOT"or somebody just threw them on there at an over-inflated price to boost the comparison price call this a conspiracy theory of maga mah proportions
USB C and lightning built in is GREAT! 3000mAh is super meh and not worth the space it occupies… with voltage conversion losses and charging losses, even if the capacity is truthfully stated (most aren’t) it won’t even be able to charge up a modern phone from empty.
I’d really like to buy these but, I’ll have to pass because, like many such power banks, the plug appears to be poorly designed such that it’s too short or too chunky to connect when the phone is in a case (even a thin one).
3000 mAh might be almost enough to nearly charge a phone, once. Got a couple of those (~3k mAh) that look like USB memory sticks for emergencies, and a 12k mAh unit the size of a small phone for normal use. It will charge my phone 3x, and a 10.5" S4 tablet 2x. The pair on sale here are anemic.
I still have a 10,000 mAh power bank I bought 5 years ago for much less than this. Still working fine. I needed proof that this is on Amazon for $35. I, literally, thought about if it was April’s 1st. Huh, turns out 3000 mAH power banks still sell for more than $6. Learn something new everyday.
@goldnectar built in cables count for something & 3000mAh should be a fair bit lighter then 12000 so better for heading out with a low charge phone and a battery for the afternoon/day. Not nearly as good to go camping for a long weekend though.
sad to say i bought this. would have been useful for its intended purpose (backstop for a trip abroad with iPhone using GF), but neither of the units worked. the black one was a complete dud, wouldn’t turn on or take a charge out of the package, pink one charged once, then let me down in the airport in atlanta, actually started draining my phone. guess i’m lucky they didn’t actually set my luggage on fire, but geez, meh.
