    Does anyone know of a good portable battery pack for my iPhone 6 Plus? I often go out in the city where outlets aren't always accessible or just don't want to be bothered by them. Anyone know of any good ones that will charge my iPhone quickly (high amps)? Preferable with 2 USB plugs.

    I'm interested in the same thing. I have one but don't think it will charge my 6 plus more than once.

    I have the easyacc 10000 mah one in black and orange. I have used it in Disney world with my 5s and then a day in NYC with my 6 plus. Awesome charger at a great price and handles at least 2 charges.

    I would be interested in hearing some options, too. I am especially looking for something that is small and can easily fit in your pocket. I prefer a small battery pack that only gives me a half a charge over a large one I don't want to carry with me because its too big. Any suggestions?

    This is the one I have. Used it on a recent vacation and it works great. You can charge two devices at the same time and it works for an iPad. Also has a flashlight that comes in handy.

    Yeah I was looking at the easyacc and the rav on Amazon. Both seems to be pretty good batter backups.

    I have the incase portable power one. It's been excellent. Used a lot with my 5. Was a godsend all day events with no wifi and poor 3G.

    This one looks well built. Do you know of anything a bit smaller. Maybe the size of a USB stick?

    I don't I'm afraid. The incase one isn't too big. Fits in a pocket.

    Forgot about Anker, I heard they're pretty solid in charging fast.

    1) the cable is 1.5ft, half of apples length
    2) a shorter cable is easier to carry around and use. Would you rather use a long cable to charge from a battery pack?
    3) the cable is braided, like a rope
    4) it is much cheaper
    5) it comes in many color options, to match your case or color of you phone

    That's a good point about it being short and braided design. I've just had bad experiences with aftermarket cables not charging properly.

    And also, it uses apple certified parts.

    Some great options but of everyone I've looked at so far, there's at least a few percentage of people receiving faulty units or stop working a month or two down the road. Looking for reliability as well. I like the Anker the best so far.
