Between Rich and I, we now own at least four of these portable chargers. Since our jobs require the constant use of our phones, we've tested dozens over the years, and this model is hands-down our favorite. The reason is three-fold:
- It has the highest power storage to size ratio with 20,000 mAh and a compact design that's still small enough to fit into most handbags (it's about the length of my iPhone 8 Plus);
- It has a built-in stand which allows you to prop up your phone to comfortably continue using/watching while it charges; and
- It has a built-in iPhone AND Android cord.
This last point is particularly key. There are a ton of models on the market that do not have one built-in cord, much less two, and not only is remembering a separate phone cord a fool's game, but the extra bulk/congestion in your bag is no bueno (especially if you're carrying a small purse). With two different types of cords, I'm able to simultaneously charge my iPhone and my favorite bluetooth headphones (which use the same charging cord as an Android) simultaneously. The charger gives me a full FOUR charges on my iPhone 8 Plus (same for Rich's iPhone X) and I never leave home without it. Oh, and it just so happens to also be super sleek and pretty. WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED?
P.S. There are a few reviews on Amazon that describe issues with the device's cords/charging ability after a few months. If this is the case, the company has a 100% guarantee and will send you a replacement immediately (as confirmed by other reviewers). I'm guessing there's going to be one or two bad eggs in the bunch with any product, and people are more likely to review when they have a negative experience than the (likely) hundreds of people like me who have had a positive experience. We've had ours for months and have never experienced any issues whatsoever.
