Questions and Answers
Battery operation works as expected. My main gripe is the advertised 2,500 mAh capacity. I've tested this battery on my iPhone 6 which supposedly has a 1,810 mAh battery. So, one would expect this battery to fully charge my iPhone 6 once. I've only charged my iPhone with this battery twice. But, so far, this battery will only charge my iPhone 6 by ~75% (e.g. - iPhone battery was brought from 10% to about 85%). Even accounting for real world conditions that say charging is less than 100% efficiency, I would expect a 2,500 mAh battery to fully charge a 1,810 mAh iPhone battery.
Another noteworthy comment is directed to those that use a case to protect their iPhone. The black plastic casing of the lightning connector may be too thick to support charging with certain iPhone cases on. (I have to remove my first-gen RhinoShield CrashGuard bumper case to charge with this battery.) I have this same issue with some of the earlier/basic Monoprice lightning cables.
Overall, this battery is good for the price. Despite its shortcomings (in my eyes), I will likely continue to use it. In fact, I bought two (during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale) so that I can always have one on hand while the other is charging!
For perspective, I haven't used many portable battery chargers. But, I consider the LinearFlux LithiumCard Pro to be the gold standard. I got one from their Kickstarter campaign but, it did not survive my daily abuse of it and I am not willing to pay the cost to get another one. While it was working, I *loved* it. But, it only lasted me for about a year. For the money, I can get 10 Monoprice emergency batteries or just one LithiumCard. 'Nuff said. :-)

At a 2500 mAh rating I would expect the ability to fully charge my iPhone 7 but it does not. A first unit provided ~40% charge, a replacement provides ~70%. This is adequate but not what should be expected. To charge my phone it would need to perform at ~80% efficiency, a very reasonable expectation.
It also comes without any instructions. It is easy enough to figure out with green -> amber -> red represented depleting charge and solid green representing full charge. when charging. But, there is not a good excuse for not including minimal instructions.
