Samsung offers its 9,000 mAh portable battery pack at a 60% discount

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.

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.
