5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Emergency Charger, May 19, 2014
I charge all my devices with wall-warts. I do however, keep portable chargers in strategic stashes as emergency power. My Zendure has less power leakage than any of the dozen plus batteries I have owned over the years. After four months without use, it maintains a charge with negligible loss. Most other batteries will lose a significant portion of their charge in that time. The Zendure seems to experience so little drain, that I would feel confident in getting a full cell phone charge after the unit sat unused for a year. Great product!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars WARNING - READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY APPLE, September 5, 2013
If you are purchasing an Apple computer for ease of use and a super user-friendly GUI, go ahead and push "BUY IT NOW". But if you are migrating over to Apple to take advantage of the apparent bargains to be found in the professional software arena (Music Production, Video Production, Graphic Arts, etc.) I am issuing a warning that Apple is lying to you. Apple has implemented an aberrant pricing policy that varies widely from the industry standard pricing policy for professional software. Apple, in true corporate fashion, has made this change without warning or notice. The new policy is NO PATH TO UPGRADE. You heard me right. If you pay professional software prices for a piece of Apple software, and two months later they release the new and improved package, you will be stuck paying full price for the upgrade. Do you feel like you got a deal now? You have now paid more for your software than if you had gone with the industry leading software package (PreSONUS, Adobe Premiere, CorelDraw, etc.) and next update, you will be well behind the pricing curve. I do not have a problem with Apple software, but rather the sneaky way in which they implemented the pricing policy. If you are buying Apple to take advantage of these apparent deals...save your money and stick with a PC. You will pay more initially for your software, but within a year you will be saving money.
