Also this thing only works with real batteries - it refuses to turn on if one feeds it NiMH rechargeables. Tried with Sony CycleEnergy, Sanyo Eneloop, Duracell rechargeables. It only wants real alkaline batteries. That's a pitty, since NiMH batteries have a lot more juice to feed into a gadget...
I researched many of these type of items and was a little apprehensive about it. But, there was no need to be! It arrived and I followed the incredibly easy and fast instructions (put in the 2 AA batteries that are provided!) and then use either the Ipod cable to charge the Ipod or use the cell phone cable (BOTH cables are provided!) to charge the cell phone. That's it! As advertised! It is fantastic! It seemed to bring up the Ipod to 100% pretty quickly although the Ipod was not completely drained. The cable provided for the cell phone is the mini port, not the micro - I don't know if you can purchase the micro cables and use it with this product - it has a DC out 5V opening for the charger (it's a small circle) and then the other side of the cable fits either the cell phone or the Ipod, depending on which cable you are using... The only thing I did think about once I got it was that you can't charge them both at the same time since the charger only has the one hole... but I don't really think that will be too much of a problem.
I was going to use generic AA batteries in it, but the instructions say to use only Duracell (makes sense!) so I will follow the instructions.. I am very happy with the product and will keep it in mind for gifts!! Fantastic price for such an awesome item!!
Problems: It is, however, too expensive for what it is. Small cheap connector and a battery case. Also, make sure you know the difference between USB mini and USB micro. You may need to buy an additional cable as well! It would have made more sense to have it with a full USB since most chargers have cables to go from USB to the appropriate mini/micro and that would allow for use of a longer cable. As it stands, the included cable and separate adaptor leave the pack at an ungainly distance from the phone.
This seems to be the best, if not only, choice that I found for this task.
I read the reviewers' solution to the problem using a Duracell "My Pocket Charger" and, having nothing to lose, I bought one. Job done! Hundred dollars in pocket.
If you've got a Garmin training watch, 205, 305 and ( I suppose) even the new 405, then get one of these now and you'll be ready for the day your watch goes stone dead after a fifteen minute run....'cos it will....
I tried a cheaper one I found on Amazon (that was a waste of time and money) and it didn't work. This one does work. It includes 2 batteries and mini and micro USB cables. Because of that, it's actually cheaper than the cheapo one I tried first. It's simple to use, just load the batteries and plug it in. I saw an almost immediate increase in the charge after plugging it in. Charged my phone from 1/3 to 3/3 power in less than 1 hour. One charge will use all the juice in 2 fresh AA batteries, so throw a 4-pack in your backpack. Recommended.

Drained my AA batteries quickly for only a single bar of increased battery life. I have a Samsung Galaxy note2.Published 20 months ago by new mom
Says it's for cell phones, but comes with a *mini*-usb connector. My Android and most others that I know of require a *micro* usb connector. Read morePublished on November 26, 2013 by Barry Frank
No it didn't because I had to spend more money. The charger didn't come with a cord for the galaxy s3 so I spent 1500 more to try and get usage out of it.Published on August 4, 2013 by Quen
