      I researched them all before purchasing this battery/charger. This is the only choice that offers amazing power, quality and value. For example I fully charged the Power Max and let it sit for over a week. It was still at full charge (4 lights). My iPad was at 40%, it took 2.5 hours to get me back to 100% while occasionally using my iPad. After the charging was complete the battery still had 3 lights indicating it still had 75% left.

      Another great feature is the 5 ports. Obviously for the convenience of charging 5 devices on the go but, also Very handy while on vacation as a wall charger. Hotel rooms have limited outlets. This allows us to charge all our USB device through the battery as a charger (while charging the Power Max at the same time).

      The design of the Power Max is very nice. Doesn't look cheap. Some complain about the size, I find it a very acceptable size for what it does. Fits easily in iPad carry bag I have. Also comes with a micro fiber bag to keep it clean and protected.

      The addition of the "Y" USB micro and mini cable is a nice touch.

      I highly recommend this product. I can't find anything negative to say about it. The ONLY thing that would be a nice future enhancement would be a built-in fold out wall plug to eliminate the adapter. But, the ones out there that offer that feature are under powered, have less ports and have had many quality issues as well as a much higher price.

      This could also be considered an EMERGENCY device! The LED flashlight will provide HOURS of light with this battery! Imagine being lost and/or without power for days... This would help keep your cell phone and or GPS powered and potentially lead to a rescue. Hey, it could happen. I'd rather be with it than without it. Slip it into your backpack for peace of mind.

      I purchased two of these batteries in my most recent order. Upon charging the first battery with the supplied charger it physically expanded & bulged (a precursor to explosion). It expanded about a centimeter (quarter inch) before I noticed & unplugged it. The second battery showed early signs of bulging & had difficulty charging. I was not prepared to temp fate further given the explosion & fire risk associated with faulty lithium batteries & ceased any further testing.

      I sort comment from the manufacturer, I even sent them photos; it's been several weeks yet a reply has not been forthcoming.

      If you choose to purchase this product do so at your peril. Keep a watchful eye when first charging the battery & do so in a room where there is a low fire risk (i.e. a bathroom). If the battery begins to bulge after 1-2 hours on charge unplug it immediately & report to retailer.

      Exactly what I needed!

      By Wayne

      from Fishkill, ny

      Comments about i.Sound Portable Power Max (16000 mAh):

      I wasn't sure how to judge how many iphone recharges this power pack would provide, didn't expect 480 hrs. I got 6 full charges from jus about empty and 1 full iPad recharge before I had to recharge the power pack. This is all I was lookin for. I go on hiking expeditions of multiple days, runnin gps and pandora, Bluetooth headphones and HR monitor so I need a reliable source of power in the woods.......this power pack is exactly what I needed. If those charges meet your demands, I would highly recommend this to you.

        This is a nice-sized unit that has a lot of power. Very happy with the purchase.

          If I try and charge an iPhone5 and iPad2 at the same time the unit seems to overload and refuses to charge either. It will do 2 iPhones OK and 1 iPhone and and e-cig battery. Having 5 charge points seems a bit pointless. Also the fully charged unit has lost 90% of it's charge after a week of no use.

              Comments about i.Sound Portable Power Max (16000 mAh):

              This is a fantastic product. It *completely destroys* the limitations of mobile batteries and it's not even heavy. I usually carry it in my laptop bag, charge it at night once a week. I barely notice that it exists except that I'm absolutely never stranded by a phone/ipad battery.
              The charger for my car's gps just broke before a 14 hour drive so I plugged my gps into this (and my iphone while streaming podcasts) and it lasted the whole drive with half a battery left.
              Sometimes when my iphone needs charging durring the day I put the PPM in a jacket pocket and the phone in another and power it while walking around.

                            Say goodbye to no battery power halfway through a long flight. This thing is built like a brick, and it weighs like one too. However, the good thing is it can charge multiple devices concurrently with USB, and it can get your iPad working for up to 480 hours... just get this, you won't be disappointed. It's the best one on the market, by far.

                              This product is great. Holds enough of a charge to last for weeks. Can charge your device several times on one charge. This should be in everyone's bag.

                                  I purchased two of these batteries in my most recent order. Upon charging the first battery with the supplied charger it physically expanded & bulged (a precursor to explosion). It expanded about a centimeter (quarter inch) before I noticed & unplugged it. The second battery showed early signs of bulging & had difficulty charging. I was not prepared to temp fate further given the explosion & fire risk associated with faulty lithium batteries & ceased any further testing.

                                  I sort comment from the manufacturer, I even sent them photos; it's been several weeks yet a reply has not been forthcoming.

                                  If you choose to purchase this product do so at your peril. Keep a watchful eye when first charging the battery & do so in a room where there is a low fire risk (i.e. a bathroom). If the battery begins to bulge after 1-2 hours on charge unplug it immediately & report to retailer.

                                  I bought this, got home and couldn't wait to try it oot. I wanted a way to charge my iPad (3rd gen) on the go, and this is it!!!
                                  It's light weight, comes with a carrying case and charger. It even has a switch to turn the power on and off to maintain your charge when not in use. The built in LED flashlight is a puuuure bonus!!!

                                  Don't even think aboot a less powerful charger, GO WITH THIS ONE!!!
