@cengland0 The exact specs on this model are really stressing my post-holiday Google-Fu, but if similar Mophie models in this smaller form factor are any indicator, it seems that this is a straight 5V system, without any fancy Qualcomm QC capabilities. That would also rule out USB-C PD beyond the somewhat increased amperage allowance of 3.0 amps (15 Watts, at 5V). For the price, that puts these in contention with the oldest model Anker or Aukey units on the Amaz, which are reliable but also lacking USB-C and QC, but with the svelte form factor that gives Mophie some of their moxie. Worthwhile to me, but I like hoarding tech and power stuff
Although you’re technically right about it not being $50 at Verizon, it is $49.99. Meh just rounds their figures. Ever notice nothing on this site sells for anything other than whole dollar amounts?
If the DC-DC converter is 100% efficient (impossible, real world physics is cruel) and the batteries actually did store as much as advertised (possibly when these were fresh from the factory, but that isn’t how Meh’s business model works), then these could put out 15 watts for just under 2 hours.
These are pretty tempting at this price, although I have way too many (larger) powerbanks already… maybe I’ll wait until later today, and if there are still some available… maybe? Hmmm, decisions, decisions.
Of all the power banks you sell I always compare them to this one, seems like it was a much better deal! Haven’t seen one with this much power at this price since! “Tzumi 12,000 mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge 3.0 USB and Lightening Port” $9.00 on April 3rd, 2019. They are not as pretty as the pink ones, but more power, less price! Bring these back!
Meh is on another power trip! These are coming more frequently, indicating a recreation is becoming an addiction. Pretty soon, there will have go be an intervention, or be co-dependent on the obsession.
Another words: STOP BUYING THESE SO MEH WILL STOP SELLING THEM!
After recently purchasing a 2-pack (Shakur?) of the 8000mAh Scorpion X, which has built-in cables for pretty much everything, from meh for less than this, I think they should not offer a charger without built-in cables. Ever. Again.
@hockeybum Well, yeah on the 2pac reference. As for cables… I actually don’t mind because I don’t want a bunch of attached cheap and possibly non-certified cables. Especially if you are using the Apple Lightning port, the cable has to be valid and this usually means the company paying a fee to Apple. Especially with all this port-changing going on – what connector to what connector? World is gettin’ too complicated. Like just having good output ports that I can use as I wish, as this seems to have.
It did take awhile for these suckers to arrive, but for the price, worth the wait. One stays home, one goes in the camper trailer. Now … this tired and technology challenged customer has to eait til tomorrow to play with 'em.
