What the heck is a 'power bank'?
Nov 6, 2013 12:54PM PST

Do you mean 'charger'? Or 'battery'?

Be as detailed as possible.

try eBay or Amazon, they always work for me
i was surfing online yesterday and came across this site, i forgot the name but i'll go and check my online history, but they had free shipping, i think i saw something like that but i think they called it an extended battery for your phone.

i'll be back after i check the place i saw it

Hi, I just checked the online history and I found that website, that was advertising your extended battery.
By the way where in the world did you get the name power bank, I never heard that term in my life.
That term is a little strange, sounds funny though.
Ok, enough joking around. The site was and I think your battery is on the front page of that site. Let us know here if you get it and if it's any good.

how about 8000 mAh capacity?
Dec 10, 2013 4:49PM PST

Kinkoo Infinite One Portable Charger contains a real 8000 mAh capacity which can charge my iPhone 5 more than times. Most of all, it is the lightest and thinnest portable charger at only 162g and 11mm in its class.
Also, it uses the best A+ Quality Lithium Polymer battery inside, which charges faster and gives a longer shelf life at least 15 months.
just consider about it.
