Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for a quality 10,000-30,000mAh battery pack for recharging smart phones in the backcountry?  I have re-read the backcounty device thread and wondered if there were anything new or better.

I tried a Goalzero, the one with the rechargeable AA’s, and could never get it to work.

Here are a few I was looking at.

Thanks!

I have a couple by Anker and I am happy with those. Price was good and they seem to work reliably. Size is relatively small too for the 3K and 10K (about a deck of cards).

I use an Anker 20,000 mAh battery. Works great, gives my phone a couple charges. One thing to do is to make sure to enable airplane mode once you hit the backcountry. My phone will last days on airplane mode.

Thank you both!

I will give the Anker models a look.

The Anker 20000mAh looks pretty solid.

I'm a big Anker fan. I've got a previous model 10000mAh battery pack, a 3 panel 15w solar charger, and numerous wall/car chargers. They've all been really solid.

What issues were you having with the Goalzero.

Scot, even after reading the instructions and charging the unit I could never get it to recharge any phone I tried it on. It was a few years ago.
