    Great product. Ignore the negative reviews!

    • Written by Michael B from Hove

    I’ve had one of these for around a year since they first came out and it has worked without problem, able to provide more than one full charge of a MacBook with some over to spare for phone and watch or a further partial MacBook charge. It’s also robust and charges quickly itself. The LEDs will go off after a few seconds when it is charging, but pressing the on/off button once quickly will cause them to light up once again showing you the charge status. As for how to connect it up, the manuals are pretty clear that you just charge it using the USB-C cable. Things really couldn’t be simpler.

    Ignore the negative reviews. This is a great solution for people on the go and I have also used it very successfully when camping, recharging it from solar panel battery systems.

    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.

    Disappointing for the extortionate cost!!

    • Written by Michelle P from Kings Lynn

    Bought this battery pack to compliment my brand new MacBook Pro. My advice is don't waste £120 of your hard earned cash. It absolutely will not give you anything like 14 hours mac battery life. Fully charged it just about charges the MacBook from in the red to around 95%, again nothing like the promises made. All in all very disappointed other than the fact that the fabric makes the item look nice. Don't bother, totally not worth the money

    Great powerbank

    • Written by S A from Telford

    I got this powerbank a few weeks ago and I’m quite impressed with this as I can charge 2 devices at the same time at full speed (no compromises in this area unlike most power banks I’ve used),I can also fast charge my iPhone 8 meaning when I’m on the go,I can top up to over 50% in half an hour from this powerbank (the first one I’ve used that delivers what it promises in this area) and even run my 15in MacBook Pro for 2 hours when editing video in Final Cut Pro X.

    This is also very well built with a lovely fabric finish,charged from 0% to 100% in around 3 hours using apples 29W USB-C charger (although other 30W chargers can work as well). This is the size and weight of a small paperback book roughly from my experience when holding it or carrying it in my bag which tips the scales at less than half a kilo (roughly the weight of a 10.5in iPad Pro).

    I don’t think I can ask for anymore than this from a powerbank. Simply brilliant. 5/5

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

    • Written by Harold T from SWANSEA

    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.
