Thank you, It will be used on extended camping trips (7+ days) with no access to power. Would be charging 2 phones and a camera battery. Currently have a 9000mah but its not lasting us long enough.

I think two bricks 10000mah might be better...easier to share and if one breaks you still have a 10000 mah brick. Consider buying at Costco but don't open the package (be nice) and when you return, if you don't need it, return it!

I have this Anker and it's great. At first I thought it was a bit on the big and heavy side but since I carry it in a backpack it's not that bad at all. I bought the Anker Powercore II 10000 for my wife and daughter and it's ok a lot smaller and lighter and easier for them to pack around in a purse. But. I prefer the 20000. I paid $49 for it on Amazon.gr8dlr wrote: ↑ Curious why you want/need 20,000 mah unless you plan on trying to charge a laptop or something which has a much bigger battery.
Just remember these things periodically die for no reason and you'd be out a lot more $$ by buying 20,000 mah unit. Perhaps two 10,000 mah might be better - easier to charge two devices with two "bricks" as you're not tethered to one "brick". Unless you phone burns batteries, I doubt you need to charge a phone more than once in a day with the backup brick.

eg. $60 for Anker
5 hours to recharge unit below with a QC charger....need to buy a separate wall plug charger
