    Dear all, my phone started to power down after using almost half a year. And l thought a power bank could be helpful when I was outside. After went through so many types and brands of this kind of product, I still have no idea to pick one. Especially when you almost make a decision, then you found some negative comments. So if you have experience in using this kind of product, please share with me. BTW, please not recommend Anker, my friend had one and he said that Anker doesn’t support Samsung Tab… tks.

    To recharge what? You got to be more specific man if you want people around here to help you.Product you own, what time you want to charge, what price you ready to pay. What's your plans with it?

    Thanks for the reply. I want to recharge my Samsung Galaxy4...Indeed, I haven't bought something like this before. Just figure that it maybe useful when I am outside and in case I forgot to charge my phone..

    My friend recommand me one 14,000 pack from RAVPower,

    http://www.amazon.com/RAVPower-Lightning-Thunderbolt-Incredible-connectors/dp/B00EHEEFWY/

    but I am no sure if this fits my phone....Any ideas on this particular product?

    oh wow i was thinking about products like this before, but for camcorders & SLRs, portable power supply was what i was wanting when i was in the mountains

    that link is usb, if your phone charges over usb, then it works, simple

    an alternative is to have & charge spare batteries instead of carrying a charger (but dont store them charged for long periods without usage)

    I have one of the RAVPower 14000mAh. It works great with my Galaxy S3 and my Galaxy Tab.
