Buying something Chinese is really bad, literally every thing i have from china has broken in the first day. And i do not want to buy something electronic like that battery pack from china that could explode or something. All i need is a power pack that could charge around 75% of my battery. I do not need some huge thing. I simply can not get my phone to last throughout a normal school day on normal usage.
Though I read your "no china" criteria, I would still suggest you to try out the Mi Power Bank. I have been using it for almost 4 months now, and although I had my own reservations regarding a Chinese product that could (literally) kill me, it has been terrific till date. It charges up the phone at almost the same rate as the wall charger, and it itself charges up pretty fast. Comes in two sizes- 5200 mah and 10400 mah. The 5200 mah power bank is what I have, and it is sufficient to fully charge my N5 and charge a Grand 2 upto 20-25%. Plus, it is a lot cheaper that the power banks made by Sony and likes.
Btwn..It actually comes from Xiomi, the makers of Mi3 which has been one of the most successful phones in 2014. This is the only thing I relied on while getting the power bank, and boy am I happy with it.
