5.0 out of 5 starsPerfect for Travel and EDC
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on February 26, 2023
I bought this for an intercontinental trip last month, and it worked perfectly for that.
On my way there, had a 2hr flight, layover of 4.5 hrs, then a 4.5hr flight.
It was awesome being able to sit anywhere and plug right in without having to leave my devices at a charging station that nowhere near my seat (as many did).
Only a couple of people were able to sit next to the charging station and use their stuff while charging.
While there, I carried it with me about half the time. itś about half to ~60% the size of my Samsung S22. I'd carry this in one front jean pocket and the phone in the other. Not too bulky and hardly noticeable.
The awkward part is having to also carry the charging cable.
Overall, it was worth carrying when I did because it allowed me to charge phones (mine and friends') while at breakfast or a bar.
On the way back... This is when it was truly a godsend!
We were due to land in Houston after a 4.5hr flight but there was tornado at the airport so we went to San Antonio. As an international flight, we had to sit in the plane for the next 4 hours b/c that backup airport couldn't process us.
When we finally arrived at Houston, it was total chaos. They changed my gate 4 times in less than an hour, every plane was late or being cancelled, etc.
It was very nice for me to be able to plug in and walk with this thing, charging my phone, as I called people to let them know I was okay. called airline, checked sties/weather, etc.
This time, all charging stations were saturated, with people waiting for a port to plug into.
Once I got to my gate, and my devices were charged, I did let a couple of people simultaneously to charge their cell phones.
HAS EARNED A PERMANENT PLACE IN MY EDC
This is a pouch that I use for everything I need at the office
It's easy for me to slip into laptop bag, take out when at office, carry with me in car, use at home office, etc.
It keeps a USB-wall charging block, USB-A to USB-C and micro-USB, pens, highlighter, etc. All TSA compliant stuff because I also drop into my carry-on when I travel.
This powerbank fits perfectly on an outside pocket. I expose the ports for charging the unit and for plugging in devices. As can be seen from the first couple of pics, I never have to remove it. And, if I need the cable to charge it, or a cable to charge a device, I unzip the top part and pull out without having to open the whole pouch up (same for returning the cable).
This was definitely a very smart (and fortunate) purchase. Holds a huge deal of charge.
I absolutely recommended.
