    11 Ah.
    That is pretty good.

  • Can it charge other tablets?

    The iPad takes 2.1A and of course, everyone builds for that and calls it a day for the other tablets, but even though the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 technically also needs 2.1A, I've found that 'iPad compatible' chargers and external batteries don't seem to have enough oomph for it.

    • yes

      in 4 hours @ 2.1 Amps

  • good enough

    Its probably talking about the lithium ion battery that is at 3.7 Volts.
    So at 5 Volts, it will be less capacity

    11Ah / 5Volts * 3.7Volts = 8.14Ah.

    11Ah * 3.7V = 40.7 kWh


    If the iPad draws 2.1Amps, then it will last almost 4 hours. Good to fully charge the iPad.

    2.1Amps * 4h * 5V = 42kWh

    • Lithium Polymer...

      The techincal specs on the vendor website specify a LiPo battery. I'm not a battery expert, but based on what I've read it seems like LiPo has a lower energy density than Lithium Ion but is easier to work with. There do seem to be LiPo batteries out there that are higher than 3.7V though.

      • 3.7 Volts

        Usually they give the rating of the internal battery. Usually it usually a bunch of 3.7 Volt Lithium ion batteries in parallel or just a big battery. And they have 3.7 Volt rating.

        the 11Ah is the rating of the internal battery at 3.7 Volts.

        I guess sit just depends on the load on the battery, but 3.7 Volts is standard. I seen it up to 4 Volts, but at high load it doesn't keep that voltage long.

  • Anker Power Bank is just as good or better

    The Anker Power Bank is much smaller. 3.74 x 2.44 x 0.79 inches and it is 8400MAH with .6A and 2.1A USB output ports and charges through a microUSB port. It is 84% the same capacity but the size difference is significant. I've had it for over a year and I'm pleased with it. It also has a flashlight LED built-in. They have a 10,000MAH version but it's much bigger but only $39.

  • Useful?

    I see these things in stores, but just can't see a scenario where they'd actually prove useful. Seems bringing along a power cable/car adapter would cover almost all scenarios. The only place I could think of this as being useful would be backpacking trips and the like.

  • Battery uses and sizes

    I have 4 Isound 16,000's and I use them all the time. I use them at home when I want to keep my tablet charged and I don't want to sit that close to an outlet. I use it at work, I am an electrician an often have the power off to work on it. I use it when I travel to charge in the airport and on the plane. i use it when I have to wait on my wife at work or out shopping. I use it on car trips when other things are plugged into the power outlets. I use them when the power is out because of a storm. I use them while i am in line on black Friday waiting to buy more toys.
    My only criticism is that Isound, Engergizer and Pop portable power all make much higher capacity batteries.
