Portable Chargers

I use one of these - http://www.mi.com/en/pb10400/
Highly recommended and cheap. It does about 3 charges for my LG G3. That's about 8 hours of intensive Ingress playing, or probably over a week of normal phone use. Ingress precludes any normal phone use for me though. :whistling:
I need to use the phone's USB charge cable though. The one that comes with the power pack only does slow charge.

That looks like a winner.
Many thanks,

Nice. That's the newer model, a bit slimmer than mine.
Xiaomi are one of the biggest phone manufacturers in the world but mainly sell in Asia so far. Check out the Mi Note Pro, it could give a few other flagship phones a run for their money. http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Xiaomi-Mi-Note-Pro_id9098

[/quote]I bought one that the maker claimed was 50,000mah for about $12 including shipping. I think that is certainly an optimistic claim, but it will fully charge my Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1" at least twice from about 15%. I've never attempted more. Two of it's four LED's were still lit. And it was still small and lite enough for a shirt pocket.

After reading this thread and getting an idea of how many mAH might be useful for a tablet, I bought a 6000mAH iHome unit locally for $15. It also came with the micro to USB cable and since the cables for about $5, I felt I got a bargain.
