@wootthereitis I’ve never heard of this brand, the 90 day warranty isn’t reassuring, and the specs aren’t great. But meh also had free shipping for members which is cheaper than Prime membership. I’m gonna skip this one either way.
I wish I was cool enough to have somewhere to go where I’d need a charge. Instead I just sit around at home with all my fully charged devices and charging packs ready to sit in my ass and fall asleep eating the Halloween candy no one showed up for.
@mexicantacos And starring your own comments…? Yeesh, you’re like a 21st-century Charlie Brown! Much like I am, except i saved all that money by not buying candy at all, cuz no one has trick or treated around my neighborhood for years. Cue the tumbleweeds!
@itomeshi Came here to say this. I still occasionally fire up my blue Game Gear to play some Sonic (mostly to make sure it still works) and the battery life these days never seems as bad as it was back then. The quality of the LCD screen and backlight, however…
Dual inputs? So the center port accepts MUSB and C? I have a sister in Florida who is always “storm ready” but doesn’t have one of these for her cell phone. Can someone recommend a good quality power bank. I think she has an older phone that may not have type C input. Thanks in advance.
@detailer Yeah it looks to me like the center port (input only) is C, so I suspect you can use micro-B input with an adapter. The outputs are A but you can charge either micro-B or C phones with the appropriate cable. So these powerbanks should work (given the right accessories) with any phone and charger combination. They won’t fast-charge though.
These are super cheap and if they work at all, they are a bargain. Anker is a better brand but Meh/Sidedeal’s current Anker powerbank offerings are pretty expensive. If you pay $10 per 10,000 mah or less, you are doing pretty good. I’ve gotten several Mophie packs from Meh for that. These Odecs are $6 per 10k mah, which is bargain basement, in fact low enough to be a bit dubious considering the 90 day warranty and unknown brand. Anker and Mophie have 2 or 3 year warranties.
I’ve had good luck with the larger (10000 mah) Mophie packs but the small ones (2600 mah) I’ve gotten so far have all been duds. For keeping around the house for storms, I’d stay with 10000 or higher.
One of mine died today (wont take a charge) after ~120 days. It’s been through ~5 charging cycles! Of course, the warranty was only 90 days. I have little faith in the other one and will only use it around the house so it doesn’t leave me stranded. I will never buy this brand again, and it’s a shame meh has since sold more!
