Default what is the best pocket sized external battery pack? prefer small and thin

The one will be my first android without a removable battery. I am concerned for business trips and want an external battery. What is small and thin with at least 1800mAh? What do you like?

I don't know how small and thin you want it to be, but I've been using the following for the last 7 months or so. I love it. They even have a smaller capacity one that's even thinner, if this doesn't fit your criteria:

This is the one I use and have gotten several friends to use. The nice feature for me is that it will charge your phone/tablet at 2.1 amps. Most are only half that. It's def pocketable but it's not slim.

How about this one? Same company, price, capacity, but 2A instead of 1.

The anker products are great! i bought the Anker Astro Slim3 . but the things missing on it is that it has no color choise, you cant tell how much battery left (only when it's 25,75 or 100%) and if you have a case on your phone, the built in charging cable wont fit into the micro usb port.

DONATE TO ME
I have an Anker 6000mah battery 2nd gen and Its awesome, a bargain and super portable. The wire is perfect to charge my phone while it's sitting in my leather holster pouch while the battery charger is in my pocket. I can use my phone freely in the setup I described without needing to feel the need to disconnect the charger. Its small and has way more slack then the Astro but not as thin. The Astro had way to short of a cable for me. Hope that was helpful.

Yeah that's the same one I asked about above. I decided to give it a try so ordered it over the weekend.
