@Anyer@therealjrn Mediocre Corporation marketing is vastly different from merely good marketing departments. They may have many reasons for selling 2 at a time, or not. They never even implied they would try very hard.
In fact, with a brand name like Meh, they have implied they don’t try hard.
@denisemcfa Badly made wall chargers often lack critical safety features. If any single component in a good wall charger fails, the charger will simply stop working. Some bad chargers fail such that the 120 volts from the wall makes it all the way to the phone. Most phones can’t handle 120 volts where they expect 5 volts.
Badly made power banks can’t fail that way. It isn’t uncommon for them to fail such that the battery voltage ends up on the USB port, but the nominal 3.7 volts won’t damage the 5 volt input on the phone.
Fakespot says the reviews on Amazon are mostly legit and the good far outweighs the bad. No AC charger, a little on the heavy side. 8000 mAh is a little small for me considering the weight and the bulk. However if the specs suit you and you have a charger for this (Micro USB or Type C) you shouldn’t be sorry.
I don’t know about you, but micro usb tips always get worn out and eventually don’t fit tightly. I’ve even tried to pry the two little “teeth” up again so it stays in the port. Seems like a flaw in having permanent cords attached.
@mandirose OK I figured it out. It’s a nonstandard USB plug and even though it plugs in either way, it only charges when plugged in one specific way. Oy. There’s no indicator on the plug as to which way is up.
