Last time I checked, most phones couldn't make it through a long weekend without a little time tethered to an outlet. If you find your gadget batteries regularly hitting the red, or just simply dying, it might be time to invest in a battery pack. Newegg might have the perfect solution for anybody in need of some extra juice when they're out and about, the RAVPower 10,000mAh Power Bank. It's on sale today for just $24.99 with free shipping.

Specs:

  • Capacity: 10,000 mAh
  • Input: 5V/1A
  • Output: 1x 5V/1A, 1x 5V/2A
  • Dimensions: 5.31" x 2.75" x 0.55"
  • Weight: 8.29 oz
  • Connectors: Micro USB, Mini USB, Samsung 30-pin, Nokia DC 2.0 (does not include Apple 30-pin or Lightning connectors)
  • Includes flannel carrying pouch

With a 10,000mAh capacity, the RAVPower should be able to charge most phones about 3 times before it goes empty. It should be enough juice to keep most weekend warriors going without scavenging for outlets.

This same charger is currently available from Amazon for $37.99 and the ratings on both sites are pretty positive, averaging about 4 out of 5 eggs/stars. The $25 price is a Shell Shocker deal, so it's only good through today and could end early if inventory runs out. If you're in the market for portable power at a great price, hurry over and get your order in!

    Thanks for the heads up...I just picked one up for an xmas gift!

      I did too. My cousin has an iPhone 5 and it constantly dies on her. Since she is a new college student without a car this should be very handy for emergencies.

        Like I point out in the specs list, there's no Lighting connector included. She should be fine as long as she's got the regular usb-to-lighting cable, but I just wanted to mention it.

        • Joseph Cascio

          That cable is practically attached to her already. It shouldn't be a problem. At least now she won't have to scout out locations to plug in for a quick charge.

    A $4.00 cigarette lighter adapter and USB cable for my car is a cheaper alternative.

      Must be nice to carry your car in your pocket

    • Ryan Stuckmaier

      Your car costs less than $21?

      • Ralph1001

        No but pushing the start button in my car to "ON" is cheaper.

        "Must be nice to carry your car in your pocket"

        If you want to carry your phone and half a pound of charger in your pocket good for you. It's easier for me to lay my phone on the car console and plug it in.

    I really dig power banks. Using a 12000mAh one, I use GPS navigation for like 2-3 hours a day and lasts for 3-4 days. Just bought a 10000mAh one with Qi included from Amazon for $41 or so. Same ones going for as low as $36.50 at DealExtreme.

      ... a powerbank with Qi? Do share.

      • Franz

        Yes. Link?

      • andy_o

        This is the one I bought, but you can find the exact same ones in other colors and a bit cheaper at dealextreme.com search for tx-5600.

    • Nate Porter

      How well does it work? Have you tried charging with qi while the power bank is charging?

      • andy_o

        Haven't got it yet.

  • Benjamen Meiers

    Would love to buy this but Newegg doesn't ship internationally. Too bothered to set up a mailing redirect just for this.

  • jonathan3579

    Just ordered one. Let's hope it turns out to be good. I'd love to see one of those backpacks with batteries built-in on sale again.

  • thekingestkong

    70 bucks in canada :S

    No excuse that a proprietary cable used to charge the device.

    • vn33

      Ugghhh .. That's not cool at all !
      My Anker battery charges with a micro USB

    • Robb Nunya

      It doesn't. I have one, and it comes with 2 micro USB cables. That's it.

  • Jackie

    A great Christmas gift I've picked. Now I have their 3000mAh lipstick charger, 10400mAh and 14000mAH chargers.

  • LOVEPHONE

    Yours is find,but the Lumsing power banks has a low price and have the same quality.
