Bought 2 of those for my iphone 5 and 6 and they are charging very well. It takes about 1 hour to charge an iphone while using it or when plugged. I was able to use both my iphones while it was charging without a hitch. These babies look slick and are very pretty to look at. They are light enough to carry around without noticing the extra weight. The LED that shows the battery charge is the best feature. It's metal so it feels good in your hand. Only slight drawback, although not a deal breaker, is that it gets very very hot after 30 min so don't put it in your pocket for too long as you will feel the heat. It was my first battery pack ever and I am super happy I bought it, really a great and quality buy. Way to go PNY, you did a great job.

It takes forever to charge, slow charger and everything seems so slow, and it doesn't work with my iPhone 5 and my galaxy note 2 after 2 days, and the best part is , the portable charger powerpack shows it has 2600mah, but this charger just charge one cycle of my iPhone 5 supposed to be 1 n the half .. Not even one star worth of it

    This is the only one that I found that has a charge meter. I spent a deal of time looking for one with a charge meter. I am really pleased to find this one.
    Also, I ordered this on a Thursday and got it on the following Saturday. Hurray! Thank you so much.

    I use this to charge my phone when I fon't want to fight over an outlet at the airport. It charges the phone up quickly, but it's slow to recharge from a USB port on my computer. Still, all in all it's a great little convenience.

      Out of the box, it is fully charged. You can tell that because it comes with a digital display showing the percentage charge--not some vague dots. If you are using this for your smartphone, it lasts longest with the phone set to ultra power save mode; otherwise you will need to recharge both phone & battery before day's end.

      Comments about PNY Technologies PowerPack 2600 Portable Power Charger:

      I went into the store to get a portable charger and the salesman told me he uses this one and it works great. This does exactly as I was promised- one full charge to an iphone 5.
      I particularly like the digital screen- it reads percent of charge while it's charging the phone and while it's being charged back up. No guessing.
      Bonus- it also came fully charged so it could be used out of the package!
      All that, and for a great price!

                I bought the first one for my wife and me to share. She liked it so much that she ordered another one for herself and 4 extra copies to give as gifts. The gift ones have received enthusiastic comments after use.

                I take it in my camera bag if my smart phone might run out of battery while I'm out shooting pictures. I also recently needed to get an important call-back while dining at a restaurant; my phone's battery was low so I connected the 2600 and was able to enjoy a relaxing meal.

                      Easy to use and recharge. I would totally recommend it to everybody who is on a go for the whole day and does not have always a socket nearby to charge own phone.

                          It's a great idea, but there not quite there yet. I've tried 3 power packs from PNY in this model and 2 didn't work. The only one that did, delivered poor performance charging my phone to only 10% ( good enough for an emergency, but not really to use as extra juice for everyday purposes).
