A must buy! Love it!
Omg I LOVE this charger! I got this because we were in a craft show. We didn't have access to power and all the credit cards were being processed through our phones. This battery charger saved us. I couldn't believe how quick it charged our phones! My husband has an android and I have an iPhone. We both were able to stay charged all day without worry. We even charged our iPod in less than a hour and it was completely dead. I am going to order another for my son now. The fact that it comes in rose gold is a bonus!!!

Charge your phone for almost a week away from power.
I ordered this to keep my iPhone charged for the duration of a 5 day bicycle trip. To test it out I charged it up upon receiving it and then used only the Poweradd to provide nightly charge to my phone (an iPhone 7). It provided a total of 6 charges (Monday night through Saturday night). I typically run my phone down to 30% or less each day. I'm confident it will last through my bike trip.
You use the provided lightning cable to both charge your Poweradd and to charge your phone (if it's an iPhone). To charge the Poweradd you insert the lightning end into the matching connector and the USB end into your power brick or other charging source. (I'm using a hard-wired USB outlet; I don't believe the little charging cube that came with your phone would do the job.) Then to charge your phone you reverse the cable, plugging the USB end into one of the USB sockets on the Poweradd and the lightning end into your phone. Don't forget to push the button on the unit to start charging your phone.

If you need a Powerbank buy a Poweradd!!
This is an update. Had a small problem with this charger. I was quickly contacted by Judy at Poweradd and offered a replacement. I received the replacement and it works like a charm.i give this 5 stars. Great company. Buying more power banks for Christmas Gifts.

Great customer service and they stand by their products
I am updating this review to 4 stars because of the customer service department at Poweradd. After posting my review I was contacted by a customer service representative and offered a replacement device. I received the new device in a very timely manner and it is functioning as expected. I am thrilled that there are companies that are concerned enough with product quality and genuinely care about customer reviews and stand by the products they make. Obviously Poweradd wants to deliver you a quality item at an affordable price. I am very pleased.
Initially I loved this item, until about 3 months of light usage. The charging port, to charge the Power Bank is loose inside and the lightning cable has to be placed just right to charge.
Pros: great price, compact, plenty of juice to charge devices multiple times, uses a lightning connector so you only need to carry one cable (iPhone user)
Cons: durability. This device is not used often and has been carefully handled. But the port where you plug in to charge the Power Bank is now loose. I have to wiggle the cable to make a solid connection and then push the wire in a certain direction to maintain a connection.
I have very lightly used this device for only a few months, and because of the longevity issue I cannot recommend and I would not re-purchase.

This was a life saver. I just returned from 2 weeks in Egypt. This saved me from having to crawl on the floor and unplug lights just to power my devises. While wi-fi was often iffy at least I had power. I won't travel without this again.

I was tired of looking for a wall plug and cable seemingly every time I needed to charge my iPhone 7 plus. Also I was tired of being tied to the wall as I have to work around many different areas throughout the day. I really liked the look of this item and went for it. I love it!
My wife didn't seem that interested until she wanted to relax on the porch and there wasn't a charger out there. I brought her mine and she liked it too. After leaving it out on the porch overnight I decided she needed one of her own! So I ordered one in Rose Gold. She took it to work and showed it off! She's not generally interested in anything "techie" but this was a hit.

Lightweight, quick charge, and portable! I love the slim thin design that fits great in my purse. There are to outputs and a lightning input, so your able to charge 2 different electronics at once. The four lights in the picture tell how much juice is left in the battery as well, which is useful! This is great for traveling and even when I'm at work and need to charge up my phone really fast. I'm extremely happy with this product and I definitely recommend!

UPDATED (interim) REVIEW
This is an update (but not the final review):
Since I posted the previous 2 star review about 5 weeks ago, the seller wrote me 4 times, sent me a replacement, then wrote me again 2 times to request/demand that I change the review... I will not be bought, and so I will post a complete review after I try the replacement. In the meantime, here is one extra star for caring about customer satisfaction.
Since I only just received the replacement yesterday, give me a week or so to really try out the new one to see if is any better, or faster charging.
My original 2 Star Review:
Slow charging and only refills my phone battery twice
I’m not sure why others have given it so many stars. I find this battery takes an unusually long time to charge up and is only able to recharge my iPhone 8 Plus twice. Its charging right now...It’s been almost 6 hours and only 2 of the 4 indicator lights are on. I do like the color and the exterior finish, so I’m giving it 2 stars.

Nice unit but wouldn't charge.
Had to send it back. Tried twice to charge it and though it had four lights to light up when full, it only had two after 27 hours. I then charged my iPhone and it went down to one light. Tried charging it again for 12 hours and it never went beyond one light.

Lightning charge indeed
Purchased power bank for ipad. Got it cause it specifically said it was built in compatible with the apple lightning cables. It works exactly like its supposed to. When you use a lightning cable, it works just like as if you plugged it into an apple charger for ipad. It charges my ipad quickly and it's portability is an asset to this product. Very light, yet very solidly built. Can easily carry this around with the ipad charging at the same time in my hands. It doesn't really heat up much so it powers everything efficiently without the heat that is created by other chargers of its kind. Very cool color which adds to the attraction. Highly recommended!
