The battery seems to perform well for an iPhone 8, The LEDs in the display seem a little off center but are visible and seem to work. The function button is a little quirky but does function as it is supposed to with a little practice.
The charger arrived in three days from CA to Florida. The first time I used the power bank, it was fully charged from Monoprice. We used this device to fully charge one Android phone while driving. Afterwards, the indicator was still full (or close to it). There should be plenty of juice to recharge 2 or 3 times. It does come with a charging only cable. I could have purchased a smaller unit, but I wanted charging power to spare if I were on vacation, etc. Yes, I would buy this again and also recommend it to others.
PROS: Has reserve power, simple to use, does the job.
Great device for those that are on the go and need to ensure that their smart phone and hands free is fully charged and ready. The duel charge ports allow multi users or devices. I put it to good use while on a recent field trip where clean, safe power was not available.
PROS: 4 charges on my i6 phone usable while charging compact size clean reliable power
PROS: Nice looking and functionally good product. I have used it once to charge iPhone 6. It holds its charge quite solidly!! Perhaps we should comment the product for at least 6 months to a year so our assessment is more reliable. So far so good. A good value.
I got this for personal use, Price was $2 cheaper than I could get at a department store close to home, not a bad deal but not the usual monoprice great deal either.
PROS: Works decent was expecting a little more power.
CONS: Came with a power cable but not a plug, flashlight doesn't work which is not really a big deal given that I don't need a flashlight on my charger, I have a Samsung Note 3, I will get a bout 50% charge in about 35-40 min, I have not yet gotten a full charge but I havent left it more than 40 minutes. If I am using the phone while charging it seem to be using all the chargers energy so I get no charge during phone usage. I would recommend if asked but I would not go out of my way to do it..
I was skeptical because most lower priced power units do not work well but I am so happy we purchased this. We have absolutely no complaints about the Monoprice Select Series Power Bank, 8000mAh. Especially since Samsung turned their Galaxy S6 into an "iPhone-Wanna-Be" by eliminating a removable battery and producing a phone that barely can stay powered for more than 5 hours with moderate use, this power bank is a lifesaver.
PROS: Does what it says
Does not excessively overheat
Has power to spare
Efficiently recharges both a Samsung Galaxy S6 & a Galaxy S4
