RAVPower PB07 10400 mAh Black External Battery Pack Portable Charger Power Bank (Dual USB Outputs, Ultra Compact Design), for iPhone, iPad, Mini; Samsung Galaxy, Note 3; HTC One, EVO; Google Nexus
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: high capacity
fast charging
well built
comes with 2 micro-usb cables
excellent customer service

Cons: fast charge only with their cable

Other Thoughts: received as replacement for a broken PB04. RAVpower provided excellent customer service.

Measured output with a USB ampmeter. My Galaxy S2 could only get 1A charge using their supplied cable which doesn't pass data pins. (different USB mode). Tested cable does get 1A with a wall charger.

I would be nice if the USB mode selection was done by the unit, not by the cable, so any cable could be used.

Unit appears well built, expect to get lots of mileage out of it!

RAVPower RP-PB04 10000mAh 3.1A Power Bank fit for  iPad 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, Google Nexus 4, Moto X and other Mobile Devices
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: high capacity
excellent customer service
well built

Cons: high speeds only with their cable
supplied cable breaks easily

Other Thoughts: With numerous devices I could only get a 500ma charge using a cable known to do 1A with wall chargers.

I contacted RAVPower who provided excellent customer service and replaced unit.

New unit can do 1A, but *ONLY WITH THEIR CABLE*. Their cable doesn't pass data pins, so it could use a different USB mode (phone reports A/C charger with both cables). (old unit definitely had problem, much slower)

I wish whatever "magic" the cable does to get the 1A charge was done in the unit so any cable could be used.

Power measured with a USB ampmeter (not the phone measurement)

RAVPower RP-PB04 10000mAh 3.1A Power Bank fit for  iPad 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, Google Nexus 4, Moto X and other Mobile Devices
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: High Capacity (I think).
Solid Construction

Cons: Only charges at 500ma on both "1a" and "2a" plugs.
Supplied cable stopped working, no obvious damage.

Other Thoughts: Charging is only at 500ma Tested with Galaxy S-I, Galaxy S-II, Nexus 7 (2012). I even installed a custom kernel with USB "Fast Charge" support, no difference.

I wonder how many people have actually measured the charge current.
