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.

I know they make cases that hold extra charges now. You charge both the phone and the case. The case then holds enough to recharge the phone one time.

Your phone may be having issues and need to be replaced.  I'd suggest going into your provider's store and telling them what's going on.

I thought of this only because my daughter's phone, 1 year old, was having issues with charging and holding power and we went in to T-Mobile and they suggested that it needed a warranty replacement. $5 later she has a new phone (same battery and back of the phone) and it's working perfectly now.  Might be worth a shot.

Welcome to the group,
Only thing I would suggest is to contact your cell phone provider& see what they suggest ;)

yeah,  I konw that Mophie has this case pack, too. Just not that into this kind of product. Prefer external battery charger.. My friend recommand me one 14,000mAh pack from RAVPower, high capacity and an acceptable price... Have no idea if this is the best choice for my iPhone because we have different phones...Have you heard about this brand?

Nice shot! I definitely have a try. But I still want to purchase an external battery pack because I need a lot of power in my life especially now I have to deal with the children problem and I always forgot to have my phone charged..When you are out, it seems better to have a portable charger to keep things updated..Not gonna happen if your phone dead half way...Any advice on this kind of product, my friend?

This one is a 10,000 mah and I can charge my s3 up 3 times before it needs charging.
