The casing is very well built, with good rounded edges, if a little slippy. I have it in a zipped pocket inside my jacket so it won't drop out if I lean down to tie my shoelaces. It is less heavy and bulky than I expected, I do not notice it in my pocket.
I was disappointed to find it will not charge my nicolites e cigs. They begin charging but the Oxford Street battery does not recognize there's something plugged in an swithces off. But as there are two usb outlets, I can charge my ecig batteries as long as I am charging my SGS3 at the same time, because that keeps the battery pack activated.
It will also not recognize my old Nokia phone, switches off after the normal ten second shut down period. But I do not use the old Nokia anymore.
Oxford Street 12000Mah takes about 6 hours to charge back up from empty, through my netbook usb.
Really very useful battery pack and I'm surprised by the good quality casing considering this is the cheapest of the type I found after looking at a dozen.
2) No instructions. How long do I charge it for? Do I leave it switched on to charge or switched off? Oh that's right, you have to guess.
3) Uh... it doesn't work. Tried every way of charging this stupid lump of plastic and the most life I get out of it is the lights flashing up when I first plug it into the wall. Doesn't mean anything though, because once I unplug it from the socket (after 5 hours) it won't switch on. Try plugging phone into it. Nada.
Point 3 is obviously just a faulty unit (nice quality control there, guys) but the first two points still stand. DO NOT BUY.
I will now be emailing Amazon for a refund and I'll be pissed if I have to pay for any postage.
I got 2 full charges out of the battery. It charged it from 9% to 100%, and then from 3% to 100%. Then next time it charged it from 10% to 29%. This means that I only got about 3605mAh from it. So, either I got a faulty product, or it isn't as advertised.
It didn't heat up or malfunction when it was working and it did give a consistent charge, so I won't rate it too low. But just know that if you need to charge something with a large battery, it might not work.
If this were advertised as 6000mah, I would probably give it 4 stars. As the build quality is okay.
But thumbs down for false advertising.
The Power bank would charge a Nexus 7 with 2 full charges. As I tended to use the Nexus for less than a full charge, I would get about 3 part charges. As the N7 battery's capacity is 4325mAh, that seems to equate to around the advertised 12000 mAh. The rated output is 5v~2.1A & 5v~1A
To charge the Power bank would take approximately 8+hrs. Up to 12 when attached to computer.

It charged up my sister's iPhone.
Best described as chunky @ 10x7x2cms, I have used it tethered to the Nexus whilst walking and aim to connect it to the Sat-Nav on a bicycle, if I can waterproof the combination.
Didn't make it clear that the pack is 8880mAh @ 5v, (3.7V x 12000mAh/5V) not 12000 as written above. Sorry bad mistake. It does charge Nexus up twice and that is it. 4325mAh x 2 = 8860mAh.
To cap it all, it does charge the Nokia 1630c on its own, now. ???
