Top critical review
3.0 out of 5 starsLong charging time both ways

PROS: It's rather large, and heavier than i was expecting. It looks and feels like it is well made and durable. Love the light up display and the ability to charge with micro OR type C to USB cords. That being said...
CONS: This thing takes FOREVER to charge to capacity. Honestly, I believe that it has only charged to display 100% a couple of times after being plugged in overnight. Sometimes only charges to 40-50% in that time or the time I have to recharge it, and I've noticed charging speed varies widely. It can be finicky about cords and charging blocks or car adapters, but once I get that magic combo correct, it performs fairly well.
I have plugged my nearly dead phone into it many many times when the LCD is showing 15% or less and it has exceeded my expectations by fully or nearly charging my phone to 100% before it runs out. In fact, in my experience it charges faster when its under 25% than it does when its over that for some reason. Another CON for some might actually be the size and weight of the unit. When it's in my purse, I definitely know it's in my purse because it is noticeably heavier than usual.
It is also about the same size as my Samsung phone, but much thicker, obviously.
My conclusion....since it has charged my phone enough for me to use it without interruption during my day I think I'm ok with keeping it and avoiding the hassle of returning/selecting a new one...I just wish it recharged itself a bit faster and was more consistent in it's charging of my phone.
