4.0 out of 5 stars 2 great uses so far, March 10, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm using these for two purposes that work quite well so far:

1 - Inhaler pouch for my son. Clips to backpacks, etc. Always know where it is.
2 - Clip it to my dog leash loop to hold a roll of doggy bags! Lol. It's perfect.

Useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made a big difference for me. Well worth it., February 29, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These really make a difference for me. I have mild osteoarthritis starting in knees. I use these during and after skiing, running and basketball. They're good to wear for a while after activity for recovery. I feel a lot of support and the compression helps a lot during and after. Very, very worth it for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Small, convenient. Maybe not enough juice for iPhone 6, May 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a very convenient size. Easy controls. I like the flashlight.

BUT - it can barely charge my iPhone 6. Very slow and doesn't even seem to be able to charge fully.

That said - I think the battery on my iPhone 6 could also be slightly lemon-scented. So - if it turns out to be the battery, I'll re-up.

But if you have a device that's a battery hog (whether it's a defective battery or whatever) this may not be the right portable charger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for quick, temporary patch., May 3, 2015
I just patched a 1" hole in an under-sink pipe that had rusted out. Today's Sunday when we discovered the leak - so this product most certainly saved me many times its price in time, convenience and avoiding weekend plumber fees. In my case it's not a permanent solution. The pipe is done. But this bought me more than enough time to not ruin my weekend. :)

It can be tricky to apply in a tight spot, like under the sink - since you do need to maintain stretch at all times, while also un-peeling the plastic film between layers as you go. I found pre-cutting smaller pieces made the job easier and it still seems to form a seal just fine. But mine is a very low--pressure leak. Smaller pieces may not do for a higher pressure leak.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cool idea - band simply not secure enough for a very physically active adult., January 3, 2015
I liked it while I had it. I got it for Christmas and I've already lost it. Why? Because the band is absolutely not secure enough. I'm a big dude and I'm very active. I have two young kids. I wrestle, I bounce against walls, I throw heavy bags on and off. This thing scrapes off my wrist ALL THE TIME. It fell off at the park and now it's gone.

I really liked the idea of it. I was really getting into quantifying my activity and setting goals. But I don't see this band working for me so I don't think I'll replace. I'd pay more for a band with a clasp. (I realize the Charge HR has a clasp - I might consider that, though I don't really need HR monitoring).

If/when I either try the HR or Fitbit introduces a new band option for the Charge (something with a clasp) I'll re-consider the rating. :(

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible controls, no resume, volume too low..., November 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
More cons than pros

- No "Resume" function. What!?!? Unbelievable.
- Volume controls are terrible. They double volume control buttons with stop and play buttons. Short press is stop. Long press is volume "-". Etc. This is klunky.
- Max volume is way too low. I'm not sure if it was like this from the beginning or if this is a recent development but when I put the volume up all the way to 20, it's still kind of quiet. Which means if there's any ambient noise it's hard for the kids to hear.
- Feels light/flimsy

I guess you get what you pay for.

[UPDATE] Reducing to 1 star. Looking for a replacement. Sorry - the lack of resume alone is a dealbreaker.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lower quality than I was hoping for. Some pieces too tight, many too loose/wobbly., August 13, 2014
Unfortunately the quality is not great. The pieces don't fit together very well. Some of the pieces are way too loose in the connectors, thus causing the structure to fall apart very easily. The cube connectors allow the rods to go all the way through so it's up to the builder to put the rod in just far enough but not too far. That's asking a lot of a 4-5 year old. Some of the cube connector holes are much too big allowing way too much play so even if you get the rod in the right amount it wiggles/wobbles. The whole thing is really loosey-goosey. Frustrating for a 5 year old's dad, let alone for the 5 year old. :) We'll stick with Lego's and other systems where the pieces fit together really well and there is not so much margin for error. Maybe better for 6+ or a precocious, patient and meticulous 4-5 year old.
