    Good to Start With. Now Not Good.

    • Written by Creighton B from Torquay

    I purchased this to complement a new MacBookPro.

    This is an expensive battery and you would think it would work longer than a month. For the first month it worked fine, but recently it has decided never to charge beyond half full. This is not ideal, and I'll be taking it back.

    The manual is shocking, and is different to the one you can download online.

    Additionally, when charging (either itself when plugged into the wall or another device) the LEDs on the side of the battery don't stay on--so you can't tell if it is charging or not.

    All in all, very disappointed.

    Useful for partial charging. Bad manual & essential to read the online one

    I bought my MOPHIE Powerstation USB-C XXL-ZML from Apple 20 March 2018

    I used it today, and obviously it's useful to partially charge your laptop when you have no mains power or not got a mains charger. BUT.... The paper manual and the online manual are different - the online manual has warnings missing from the paper manual.

    Unfortunately, you can't tell when it is charging as the leds stop blinking after about 30 seconds. There are warnings about improper connection and that (in certain configurations) it won't charge unless the button is pressed - which is an unusual feature that isn't at all obvious when you use it (which is why I searched out the online manual, as the paper manual is very obscure).

    You have to unplug it for the leds to work so you can find out whether it's charged. I'd prefer a battery that is easier to use and has fewer problems (and need for warnings) about 'misuse' it can't cope with.

    When fully charged, it charges my MacBook to 70% charge which won't give it anywhere near the 14 hours sort-of promised. All in all, it looks like it (and its documentation) could do with more than "up to 14 hours" in the Mophie QA department.

    Your mileage may vary

    I like mophie products and have purchased them for years. My mophie powerstation has not worked well with my 15-inch MacBook Pro. The powerstation keeps shutting off. Seems to drain without charging my mac though. The powerstation does charge my iPhone and IPad successfully. Given the other positive reviews, perhaps my powerstation is corrupted.

    I would rate this 0 star if possible.

    I bought two of these for external charging of my late 2018 Mac Book pro. Unfortunately they provide 1 hour of charge only when this machine is running on full specs.

    So for the price i'd look at other options as it doesn't not come close to running 15 inch Mac Book Pros for 14 hours. Its also very slow to charge. Which is another issue.

    Disappointing.

    • Written by Tom J from London

    This kept my Macbook Pro 15" 2017 charged for an extra 1 hour and a half.

    I will be returning this at my earliest convenience.

    Awful

    • Written by Vonda F from Bradenton

    I received a credit from Apple due to a problem I had with my laptop. I chose this item. I also purchased the Aukey wall charger to use with this product. The power station is not compatible with my Apple products. This is a waste of money. Very unhappy and disappointed.
