Great charger and powerbank
PROS
compact has powerbank functionality fast enough charging
Build quality is good (Version5), charger works fine. w/o problems charging unprotected Sanyo 2600mAh, but only to 4.14V. Also lower limit cutoff is near 3.2V.Its not a big problem, but it would be better to use all li-ion battery possible voltage limits(4.2V-3V). Anyway, this just longer batteries life.


Found on this page: 5th review on page 2 (click here)

The reviewer says it only charges to 4.14volts but other reviewers state it is correct at 4.2v. So either they got a charger that has a lower cutoff or their multimeter may be off. Most clearly state 4.2volts.

It is also a power-bank as well as a charger.

All reviews and helpful info found here


Details:
Charges and provides extra backup power to all devices that supports USB charging. E.g. iPhone, Android, tablets, MP3 players, GPS units, etc
Carry multiple batteries with you to get virtually unlimited backup power on the go
Charge port on-board -- charge up your backup batteries from an USB port without carrying a separate charger
850-900mA charging current
Over-charge (4.2V) and over-discharge (2.9V) protection, reverse polarity connection

Single TP4056 IC for battery charging
Single PT1301 IC for charging devices
PC-ABS flame retardant material
1200mA typical output (new in Miller ML-102 v5, currently shipping)


So yes it should be fine ;)

Not sure if it will only pull the 1 A u need.
.5 A slower

Fast charging shortens battery life.

I would only use this in emergencies- but I wouldn't buy it

And a just- charged battery is dangerous to use

Doesn't say "Authentic" so I wouldn't buy it.

Honestly- how much is ur home worth?

noob forever
