My only comment is why not include a tiny small LCD screen that shows the percentage of remaining power instead of the (HIGH, MID, LOW) only. This could give you wrong impression of how much juice is left, assuming it is equally distributed (Low=%0-%33, Mid=%34-%66, HIGH=%67-%100) then a Low indicator could mean anything between 0mA and 3600mA = you ran out of juice or you can charge your Android phone one & half times! That's a big difference in my opinion! A small LCD is a simple solution for accurately telling how much power is left and even for you to notice when the battery starts losing charge quickly = time to purchase new one. You may say it defeats the purpose as it consumes from stored power, i say put a tiny button that activates the screen for 5 seconds, you read how much charge is left then it goes auto-off. I don't think that will consume much power.
I hope they take my recommendation for later models. Other than that, I still give it 5 stars when i compare Price Vs Physical Size Vs Battery Size Vs Nice Looks compared with other models available in the market.
==EDIT 11 JANUARY 2014==
I slashed down the review from 5 stars to 1 star because the battery died after 14 months of very, very light use. Went to the manufacturer webpage to check on warranty but i discovered that they offer 10 months warranty AND ONLY for registered products (you have to register within 15 days of purchase!!!!) After this experience, i am staying away from Trent, I will find another portable battery product!
The first thing that I noticed when opening the package of the IMP120D is that it is a squat device: dimensions are approximately 4" wide, 4" long and just over 1" thick. It's heavy as well, although this is expected considering that it houses a 12,000mAh rechargeable battery. My only wish is that the IMP120D was more thin and flatter, rather than thick and squat as it would make packing the IMP120D in accessory pouches easier. As it was, I had to purchase a LowePro GPS case for it because the accessory pouch I usually use would not fit the IMP120D inside.
Battery recharge time is about spot on with what NewTrent claims it to be. Like all rechargeable batteries, there is always going to be some discrepancy between what a company says it will do versus what the consumer really gets in real world conditions. Charge time for the IMP120D took approximately 9 hours and 20 minutes from start to finish, so not bad at all. Recharge time on my iPhone 5 and Kindle Fire HD was also quite good; iPhone 5 recharged in about an hour and the Kindle Fire HD in about two.
The accessories for the IMP120D are generous; you'll get a couple of USB cables to charge various devices with it, as well as a soft felt pouch to carry the device around in. It also comes with an AC/DC adapter. The only thing that was lacking, and this is something that I harp on NewTrent's products regularly, is that there are no rubber stick-on feet for the device. The housing of the device is made of plastic and has a tendency to slide around on surfaces, like airplane tray tables, very easily. I ended up getting some rubber feet at Lowe's to combat this problem after the fact.
One note that I would like to point out is that there are people who criticize the IMP120D because they cannot recharge the IMP120D and their devices at the same time. This is no accident, as this is the way that NewTrent's external chargers are intended to work. There is a safety feature that NewTrent has designed in their external chargers to prevent damage to either the battery pack itself or the device(s) when you are recharging them at the same time.
All in all, I am very pleased with the iCarrier IMP120D. I think it is well worth the money I paid for it, especially considering that with careful use you can probably extend the life of the battery's 500 recharge cycle. While I do think that it's a bit thick and squat, the ability to charge multiple devices at the same time and have plenty of juice left over more than makes up for it. Now, if NewTrent would just throw in a set of rubber no-slip stick-on feet, heck, even Grumpy Cat would crack a smile!
I have the new HTC One, and I install cameras, alarms, home automation etc... for a living. I make alot of calls, use a lot of data, and apps for my job. Essentially regardless of my phone choice I could not make it though the day even with charging while driving.
I would end up in my service truck making phone calls while running the engine and wasting gas, comfort, and professional perception at the same time.
Now... when my phone hits yellow, I plug this bad boy in and hit power... shoot I can leave it on overnight and all day and wont even hit medium.... I can carry this with me into a customers house and use my phone for hours on end, then plug it into my charger when I drive away and my phone never took a hit... the only thing that is even remotely changed is the external battery... and like i said I get 6 charges on that!
It has 2 usb's which is awesome, So i can charge my ecig, and my phone lol... on the go!
Its worth the money, easy to use and it DOES NOT GET HOT! which is a super plus seeing as it stays in my pocket.
GREAT JOB, looking forward to trying more Trent products!
