"For power users — here is one backup battery that will charge up to six USB devices (totaling 2.4 amps) at once! The 16,000 mAh Portable Power Max includes five separate USB ports and one USB Y-cable (with dual mini & micro-USB connectors for charging 2 devices from one of the ports). This sleek-looking battery is very simple to use and provides a huge backup capacity for your iPhone, iPod, iPad, BlackBerry, Droid, and many smartphones or electronic devices connecting by USB charge cable — including digital cameras. It also has a built–in super bright LED flashlight and includes a dual voltage 110–240V wall charger for worldwide travel. Truly this is one battery that can do it all and I know you will love the convenience. I highly recommend it!" — Richard

As mobile devices become more powerful and our reliance on these devices makes them a daily necessity, the Portable Power Max provides a giant 16,000 mAh power boost in one simple-to-use package that ensures your devices will never run out of power throughout the busy day or night.

Now you can charge up to 6 USB–powered devices connected separately or together* using one backup power source. Put the Portable Power Max to work and you’ll have enough power to charge an iPad Mini multiple times, or charge an iPad 1 and 2 nearly two complete times — that’s about 20 hours extra viewing time! For the iPad 3 and 4, this battery will provide an 83% charge in a period of about 6 hours. Or charge an iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 up to 9–10 times, or earlier iPhone models and iPod touch multiple times — the capacity is outstanding and the footprint is reasonable for this much power. The entire unit measures only 3.25" x 5.75" x 1" and weighs less than a pound. *Devices using 2.4A combined output or less may be charged simultaneously.

Portable Power Max 16,000 mAh Backup Battery Just follow these simple steps (no tech ability needed):
Plug in the included USB cable (or USB cable included with your device) to any of the 5 USB ports and flip down the charge switch that illuminates a green LED showing a positive connection. Monitor charge status by viewing the charge icon on your device. When charge is complete, remove your device and switch off the Power Max.

To recharge the Portable Power Max:
Connect the included 110-240V wall charger with cable into the 12V DC port on the Power Max. Four blue LED indicators will progressively light up showing 25, 50, 75, and 100% when full capacity is reached in about 7-9 hours. Connect your devices and charge them along with the Power Max without concern for overcharging, thanks to built-in circuitry that recognizes full capacity.

Other features include a bright built-in LED flashlight with on/off switch, and an additional push button for monitoring remaining charge capacity via 4 LED indicators.

Complete package includes Portable Power Max 16,000 mAh lithium-polymer battery, mini/micro USB Y-cable, 110/240V AC adapter, travel bag, instruction manual, and warranty/registration card.

For high volume charging, the Portable Power Max provides multiple hours of pure backup power for all of your mobile USB devices. For yourself or with family, colleagues, and friends — bring along the one battery that can do it all — with power to spare!


  • "I received the RichardSolo Portable Power Max (DG160) charged it, and (with trepidation) used it to charge an almost fully depleted iPad1. After reading of others' bad experience with other chargers, I didn't expect much.The PowerMax charged the iPad 100%, and still had half its charge left over. EXCELLENT!

    I recommend the RichardSolo!"

Great Product with lots of headroom

Just got back from Europe with my PBmax and I can tell you that It performed well. We took two iPads, one iPhone 5. Our return trip was 11.5 hours direct from Rome to Atlanta and the iPad's worked the entire way using the internal batteries and the PBmax. Had plenty of power left for a complete charge of the iPhone, had I needed it. The plane's USB will not charge an iPad, only phones, so you will need another device to charge your power hungry devices. I'm completely pleased and will buy two more for my kids for Christmas, who travel a lot for their jobs.
Excellent power unit stands the test of time for me

I really depend on my PowerMax. I leave it by my bedside most of the time, plugged in. Then I have several devices I attach to it to keep them trimmed up. My iPhone5, and the power enhancement case for the 5. It has been working for me now about 6 months. I take it in the car with me when we go on roadtrips, so our iDevices stay usable in transit. Well done Richard.

This product is the best by far. I have two of them. I live in Delaware, but I work in NY. My coworkers pulled out a very small battery charger. I laughed at what they had. So when I pulled out the two 16,000 mAh Backup Battery packs, they asked, "WHERE DID YOU GET THAT?" I guess Richard Solo will receive more orders from the BRONX, QUEENS, STATEN ISLAND, AND BROOKLYN NY. I think your products are VERY HOT. Keep up the good work.

I used this to keep 3 devices charged while on a 2-week trip in the Amazon. My iPhone, GPS, and card reader were always ready to go. I use it anywhere I don't want (or can't) be tethered to the wall. I have had other chargers, but this on is by far the best!

Excellent! Bulky but does the job when you have that overseas flight and the outlet on yourseat does not work.
