    Hello everyone , I need your help to choose which power bank best suits my needs, I did some research and found some power banks by the name of Xiaomi which are suppose to be a big deal when it comes to power banks. I also found a local store that sells these Xiaomi power banks called Gerardo. The have 4 power banks to choose from but I'm not too sure which one I should get. I want it be able to charge my iPhone 6, 2-3 times from one charge. Any help would be really appreciated!

    Does anyone know how long it normally takes to charge these power banks? I was also thinking of having one permanently plugged into the usb port in the centre console of my car.

    If they're using lithium batteries in those power banks, leaving 1 permanently plugged into the USB port in your car could potentially be hazardous to your car and anyone that happens to be in it when the power bank explodes....

    the 10000 mAh variant is a little above 5 hours.

    by the way. very good choice of company, they produce very good cellphones and HD-cams as well!
    same bang for less buck than most famous brands.

    edit: and yeah those are li-ion not li-poly type!

    I have a 10000mah one. You basically need to charge it over night with a 2a charger. With a car usb port (probably 0.5A) it'll take forever

    does it really need the whole night to charge to full? i thought these things take around 40-60 minutes to charge .

    i was also thinking of buying the 10,000MAH version, do you have the xiaomi 10000mah power bank? if so what do you think of it?

    I mean I wouldn't know for sure if it needs the whole night because i'm sleeping.

    But from empty, certainly not 1 hour

    I have this http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00FZVYHOO

    Old thread but I bought an Anker 20,000 one from Amazon. It charged my Lumia 735 6 times over. Well worth it!
