I love the concept, but...
on January 22, 2018
This could potentially be the best portable battery charger that is out there. It fits great in my pocket next to my Galaxy S6 edge+ and charges it up quite fast. The built-in AC plug and Micro USB cable just make sense and are the best features along with the 4000 mAh capacity.
That being said...after only a few weeks (maybe 3 weeks) of light usage, the built-in AC plug has failed. This is one of the best features of this battery pack! Unfortunately, it was only good for a few charges and now I am committed to charging my battery pack with a USB-to-micro USB cable (the old-fashioned way). I liked the idea that when I needed to top-off the charge I could just find a wall outlet wherever I was and just plug it in. Now, I would be forced to carry a charging cable around or plan ahead by charging my battery pack when I'm at home. And who wants to plan ahead...I mean, isn't that why we would want a portable battery pack anyway? So that we could minimize the amount of time we have to think about the battery level in out electronic devices and spend more time thinking about...well, something else?
Anyway, if I weren't having this problem with my portable charger (or if the seller were to make it right), I'd be more than happy to get this review up to 5 stars...because let's face it, this would be a great product at a great price.
