Regardless this is great in situations where there are no power outlets available.

It uses only 2-AA batteries, but that's also a negative since there isn't much charge to power up the ipod for long.

This is a huge problem since the internal circuits get so hot that it essentially melts something (plastic?)

Pros: Cheap, provides consistent voltage, good current, and easy to use.
Cons: Cover very difficult to get off, LED is almost useless (super dim, although can be used as a battery life indicator), Switch can easily be turned on while in pockets, device does not handle high currents very well (creates noxious, burning plastic smell in charging currents >500mA), conversion is 5V is inefficient (loses much of the energy to heat).

Other thoughts: The D+ and D- on the USB port is shorted so that some devices (e.g. mobile phones) charges more quickly using higher currents than ordinary chargers. When the device is switched on, it provides a constant 4.98V on the USB port, even when the batteries themselves approach 1.0V. While the device is off, the voltage will slowly go down from 4.98V to the voltage of the installed batteries (possibly due to capacitance?).

Overall, this is a good device for its price. However, I would not really use it as your ordinary backup charger because it has a serious design flaw. Depending on what you are planning to charge using this device, it might work for you. However, as stated on the package itself, this device is only designed for an 500mA output. That being said, since D+/D- is shorted, many phones recognize this as an AC source and draws currents up to 1A. This is a huge problem since the internal circuits get so hot that it essentially melts something (plastic?) inside (you will soon notice a burning plastic smell if you plug this in a high current drawing device like an iPhone). Also with this great amount of heat generated, many of of battery's stored energy is lost to heat rather than charging your device (to be expected since you are upconverting ~2.5V to 5V).

This charger DOES work on 4g&3gs Iphones, I did get a "this device is not supported", But this was do to Dead batteries. The light on the charger is NOT every good so just don't buy this just for the light.

First testing on iPhone 3gs
50% Charge on phone, went from 50% to 81% in about 40 minutes (about .75% charge a minute) before the batteries I had went dead.
Next Testing will be done with a fully dead phone & fully charged Eneloops

This thing runs on AA batteries and doesn't power a device for long, in fact, it smells TERRIBLE after just 5 minutes of charging.

It has a cheap feeling to it and the tolerances aren't too tight. But honestly it works just fine, and I'm using it to charge my phone while hiking with some rechargeable batteries.

The power it makes isn't enough to charge anything and the flashlight part is laughable. It shouldnt take 2 AA batteries to not do what it's supposed to

The item was in an already opened case that was 'stapled' shut. It also looked like there were instructions or something on the back missing. When you plug in your phone to the charger, the phone does not light up as if it is getting a charge. If you leave it in for long enough, it will start charging it, but barely noticeable. It will basically keep your phone at the charge it is unless you are using it for navigation or browsing. For the cost, it is good in case of an emergency, but other than that stick with car chargers, etc.

This is meant to be used with Alkaline AA batteries, however you could used rechargeable if you wanted. I am not sure if you could recharge this while using rechargeable batteries. Regardless this is great in situations where there are no power outlets available. So hikers or people who live in rural villages can make use of this.

I am not sure how long this device will last, but with the low price I guess it is worth a try. The device is design for emergency use anyway.
