4.0 out of 5 stars Tecknet PowerBank 3000mAh - very impressive, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TeckNetŪ POWER BANK Mini 3000mAh USB External Battery Pack, Mobile Phone Portable Battery Charger- Ultra-Compact "Lipstick" Size Portable Charger for iPhone 5 4S 4 3GS, iPod (Lighting Cable not Provided for iPhone 5) / Samsung Galaxy S4 S3 I9300, S II I9100, I9000, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note / HTC: One Series, Sensation G14 XE XL, Radar, EVO, Inspire 4G, Vivid 4G, Incredible 2, Rezound, Thunderbolt / Motorola Triumph, Droid / LG Optimus / Nokia N9 Lumia / Blackberry Z10 / Sony Xperia Z - Black (Electronics)
Bought this to keep alive an old, ailing mobile whose (new) battery would quit after a day's hard use - to that end this item is absolutely spot on...the other reviews have captured the pros and cons well, but in precis...

+ 3000mAh is sufficient as a good-capacity emergency power supply (therefore don't expect it to fully charge a large format smartphone!)
+ It's well constructed (indeed, far better than Amazon's picture would suggest)
+ It's REASONABLY small (about the size of a pack of Polo mints, certainly NOT a lipstick size [although not my area of expertise however!!])
+ The cree-LED flashlight on the PowerBank is superb, bright, wide-focus and enables you to fully discharge the PowerBank prior to recharging it (you can buy more-expensive, identical products that don't have a torch!!)
+ The included cable enables both Micro-B USB and Apple 30-pin connections (although no mini-A USB for older smartphones)

- The instructions make no mention of the fact that the red LED flashes during charging - it's OK, it doesn't mean that your PowerBank is about to explode!!
- No pouch included

Overall, a really good 'get out of jail free' device.
