Samsung has slashed the price of its 9,000 mAh battery pack from $99.99 down to $34.99. That's quite the hefty price drop. It's marked as a "loyalty offer", but we had no problem adding the item in a brand new account's shopping cart and still get a $34.99 price tag before checkout.

I used one with my first smart phone back in about 2006 (An HTC windows phone) because I was terrible at remembering to plug in my phone every night.

Why is that thing so huge for only 9k mAh????

And why so expensive? Even at their discounted price my 10000mAh battery with four USB outputs was $10 cheaper.

Isn't 9k mah a good amount of juice?? Could charge my note 2 just about 3 full charges!!

Probably not 3 full charges - there's (IIRC) a 20~30% attrition rate in the transaction.

I just wouldn't trust Chinese companies when it comes to batteries. I rather pay a bit more n feel safe. Just my opinion.

For your info, inside Xiaomi the battery is made by LG chemical & most of the controllers by Texas instrument. One of the best affordable reliable power-bank.
