    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Cons:
    It is not the same power as a real source of power. I use it with four rechargeable batteries and don't get the same results. S...

    Does what it's supposed to do

    Useful battery pack

    posted by StoneColdsg on 10/02/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - It works as advertised - Simple construction - Takes 4 AA batteries instead of 2 - Multi purpose, works well with phones and other devices - On/off switch is useful when you need to store it away for future use
    Cons:
    I bought 2 of these, but the cable on one was loose and detached. I had to tape the cable down to keep it from being ripped off.
