Where it excels :

Where it falls :
Despite having a large capacity, it only provide small electric charge output as 1 A. Ok it's fine for some smartphone that comes with less than 3000mAh battery. But for some gadget such as tablet or smartphone with 'monster' battery (such as Lenovo P780) which need at least 2 A for charging, I'm sure this powerbank will falls.
