    Currently i'm use the Digipower Power Plus 2 in 1, it's only 1700 mAH, but i only use it in emergency situations. Plus it doubles as an AC adapter, so it's what i take with my when i travel

    It's a pretty solid little battery for the price, i got it on clearance for $10 last year

    I have a question about this one. I notice it has a shake to activate system (instead of a power button). If I have this in my backpack while I'm out hiking all day, is it going to constantly be activating in my backpack? I do this a lot so I'm kinda worried about this. Otherwise, the product looks great.

    The led uses almost no power. I think you are fine.

    I love the Mophie Pro. http://amzn.to/GNR633

    It's tough and provides a lot of juice for charging my devices. With all the traveling I do, I needed something reliable that can withstand some abuse.

    I use to have the Mophie Powerstation and consider the Pro to be a significant improvement.

    If it lasts as long as I expect, it will end up being cheaper than the three power stations I went through.

    I did find the Limeade on Amazon. Reviews are really good. I was surprised to see a Kickstarter project available with Prime shipping. Too hard to sort through the Kickstarter listing for price info, but seems like a decent deal. http://amzn.to/1dfWav3

    I may have to find a reason to get a second charger.

    Just received the ravpower and pretty disappointed that it didn't come with a AC plug. Have to charge thru USB and wall wart

    What battery pack do you use?

    RAVpower makes a lot of battery packs. Which one you get?

    I really want to review their products but they won't respond to my emails.
