I purchased the Selectec Ultra-slim 10000mAh External Battery Pack because let’s face it, you can never have too many power banks. I have a few smaller ones but they are generally 3000-6000mAh. They do the job but if you want something to store more power and require less charging you really can’t beat this one. It’s less than half the price of some other power banks I was looking at with 10000mAh which made it a no brainer.
The power bank came pre-charged (mine was only at 75% but not a big deal). I was surprised how small it was and thought the storage level had to be a misprint but it isn’t. It is roughly the same size of my iPhone 6s (as you can see in the photos) which means it isn’t bulky or annoying if you have it in your pocket. I fully charged it and I was able to completely charge my iPhone 6s, my old iPhone4, my iPod touch, and my e-cig and it didn’t even drop below 75%. I’ve been using it to charge my Bluetooth speaker on my 1 hour ride to work, and then while at work constantly charging my iPhone 6 and e-cig (instead of plugging them into my laptop) and it is still above 50% with the 3rd light blinking. The only thing I don’t like about this is that if you have the usb cables plugged in (it has 2 slots) then plug in you phone or device it doesn’t automatically come on and you have to hit the power button, but again no big deal.
The plastic casing had a cheap rigid feel to it, and I think if I were to drop it from waste height onto a hard surface it would probably crack but hopefully I won’t find that out. If you really wanted to I’m sure you could find some kind of rubberized case to protect it, and since it doesn’t heat up it shouldn’t be an issue. Overall I am very happy with the purchase and recommend it if you’re in the market for a lightweight slim power bank.
