Found this online this morning

 

http://www.amazon.com/KMASHI-15000mAh-External-Portable-Powerful/dp/B00JP8MZGK/

 

Use code 5MMDPK5C to get it cheaper

 

 

 

Won't ship directly to NZ so you will need to find another way to get it here.

 

 

 

Does anyone know if Youshop will send this?

Is it really that good a deal, that you would use a reshipper?

Find one on eBay that will ship directly. It's getting more difficult to ship Li-ion batteries these days.

Try this: http://m.ebay.com/itm/MI-16000mAh-Xiaomi-License-USB-Power-Bank-Battery-Charger-For-Mobile-Cell-Phone-/222031008698

I have bought 4 knock off ones of these and they have been great.

What youre trying to do is illegal. Yes its illegal. Batts are now classed as dangerous goods.

 

If they get detected at any step along the way, they can be confiscated & destroyed. NZ customs is doing that allready.
Some get through, as some sellers don't care , but shipping dangerous goods via youshop or similar & violating their terms......

Totally get the difficulty and risks attached to having a USB power pack shipped from o/s, so does anyone have a recommendation for a good value but good quality one sourced from within NZ? Looking for one that's more likely to be used for a phone rather than a tablet, but would still like the option to use it for the latter. Thanks.

Good to know - can you give me an example of one or two you've bought and would recommend?

Many thanks.

I was only interested in ones that did quick charge for my note, since on a standard 5v charger the thing uses power with the screen on faster than you can get power into it.

 

This one, but the price has doubled since I bought it - http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Quick-Charge-2-0-Power-Bank-CHOETECH-5V-9V-12V-15600mAH-Dual-USB-Portable-Phone-Charger/32374760727.html done 4 charges from near dead on the note 4 and it still showed 50% on it, so I would probably expect 6 out of it perhaps?

 

Friend ordered one that looks like this - not sure if the same seller or not, www.aliexpress.com/item/ORICO-USB-Portable-External-Battery-10400mAh-Power-Bank-Quick-Charger-QC-2-0-for-Your-Electric/32507578025.html again works fine.

 

You really need a QC 2.0 charger to get them full in a decent time, on standard USB they take forever to charge.

I wish someone had a link to a cheap or discounted high capacity device that can output 20v etc for laptops.

If you're wanting a decent 10Ah+ power bank, look for a legit Xiaomi powerbank. They sell at Gearbest, GeekBuying and Banggood for about $22NZD. Gearbest sells the Quickcharge 2.0 20Ah power bank for $49 shipped http://www.gearbest.com/xiaomi-20000mah-quick-charge/pp_263761.html

 

 

Or alternatively their newer type C, smaller/lighter 10Ah power bank for $40 shipped
