    Any recommendations on power bank/pack for a 13" Macbook Pro 2016? I have a long flight coming and just need some backup juice just in case.

    As long as in carry-on, don't see what the issue would be. I know you are not allowed to pack L-ION batteries in checked luggage. Has anyone had an issue taking a battery pack on the plane?

    I was going through the Amazon reviews and it looks like it can't charge the new MBP 13" because of the 60W power requirement. Bummer!

    I will consider this for my iPad Pro 9.7 and other devices. Thank you!

    I've taken my mophie one on domestic trips without any issues.

    It charges the 13in MBP, but not enough juice for the 15in. I got mine last week and charged my 13in with it. My MBP was totally discharged - the Anker battery brought it to about 85% before it gave up. If you were down to say 30%, it would likely bring it to 100% or close.

    Which 13" do you have? My flight to London is at night so I won't need it for a long time. Just need to do some coding for school while in the air.

    So apparently I am still learning how to read. I misread the comment in the Amazon comments. Looks like this is a great solution. I will purchase and give it shot!

    Dougef, thank you so much for your replies. Very helpful!

    You're welcome. Keep in mind this brick is fairly large and heavy. The info is in the Amazon listing, but was still a bit surprised.

    I ordered a nice travel backpack for my 13". Hopefully that helps with the weight with traveling.
