  • Powerful external backup battery

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Gives a lot of juice for its size. I could charge a single small phone from dead to full in a few hours, and there was juice left in it to keep another, more powerful phone from shutting down. Feels sturdy and well-built. Can charge an iPad from 0 to 40% in 3 hours. Not full, but hey, current is supposed to be limited at 1A, not the 2A the wall charger gives it.

    Cons:

    Solar panel really isn't charging much. Seems more like a gadget than a real feature. Even in full sunshine for hours during summer, I couldn't get more than one LED worth of battery level to light in a day. Shipped cable has flimsy connections. Better use the original USB cables from your devices.

    OtherThoughts:

    I charge it with a Motorola mini-USB charger, set it in my bag and forget about it. Manufacturer should ship it with a better cable.

    Bottomline:

    This is a good backup battery when you tend to forget to charge all your devices before leaving.
