    Battery Pack For Nexus 10

    I'm looking for a battery pack to use in flight for the Nexus 10.

    Has anyone got any reccomendations?

    If I'm reading things correctly I think the output from the wall charger that comes with the nexus is 2A but all the battery packs I have seen are 2.1A output.

    As the battery pack will be linked direct to the Nexus via a cable will the extra .1 of the output have the potential to overcharge the Nexus and screw the battery?

    I have a couple, both from New Trent, a 5200mah, I bought this for my GNexus, but it works as well on my Nexus 10 http://www.amazon.com/New-Trent-IMP5...words=Newtrent and this one, a 7000mah I acquired as well which has both 1A and 2.1A which both charge the Tablet. http://www.amazon.com/New-Trent-NT70...words=Newtrent
    You may want to buy this though, a 12000mah which would be more than enough. http://www.amazon.com/New-Trent-Sens...words=Newtrent

    Many thanks EFIN,
    I was thinking of getting this pack: 20000mAh Portable Battery Power Bank with 8Charger connectors for HTC,4s,Samsung | eBay

    but was concerned that the 5% extra power charge ( 2A of a Nexus charger to 2.1 of power pack output ) could have the potential to overcharge the Nexus battery and cause damage.

    That's a good deal, I see the same on Amazon for $47us the 2.1A is intended for the Apple devices which will not charge on the other 1A port. I use both if charging my tablet and phone, and put the tablet on the 2.1 with no issues. A 20000mah will definitely charge the Tablet, my 7000 basically extends my usage time from 6-9 hr to work on a 14-15 hr flight, have only done that once, but it was nice to have. Just a preference thing, I'm betting the 20000 is rather large, not bad for a tablet but to use for a smartphone might be cumbersome.
