Top Customer Reviews
There are two items to note. One, it is a manual generator with no battery. So if you're not pedaling you won't be able to charge anything. Two, it is very light weight (nice) but because of that it is also very unstable. The manual suggests screwing/clamping it down to something. This is a good idea if possible, otherwise you need to sit with your legs directly over it so it doesn't slide away, which can make pedaling a little awkward. However both of these are noted by the products manufacturer and I pretty much knew/expected it so I didn't feel the need to knock of a star in the ratings since they weren't a surprise.
willingness to work with me, a very demanding customer. I went with four stars because there is
room for improvement. The product performs as advertised and generated enough power to keep your
cell phones and tablets charged. The design is innovative, and the portability excellent. My goal was to use it as an exercise bike
and the stress of the weight and force pedalling exerts caused the Powerbox to break. This is not the fault of the Powerbox per se, it does
the job. The housing is plastic and not intended to be stepped on, or abused like a bicycle. Let's face it bikes are made of steel.
The product is terrific for Apple Products and chargers. My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Note 10.1 with two amp chargers
taxed the Powebox to the limit, mainly because Samsung has maxed out fast charging and as long as I used the Powerbox as a hand
pedal unit it was reliable. Using the Powerbox in that fashion provides a great upper body workout. I have two Powerboxes and I am satisfied. My only complaint that may not be possible to correct is the unit is noisy and sounds like an electric drill. In a hurricane or blackout, who cares, right. If you use this every day for charging your phones in the house or an apartment expect some negative feedback from those not pedalling. It is annoying. Ken has indicated he is working on a more robust higher power design, and I expect that will be
another breakthrough in Generator design. If you ar an enthusiastic Prepper or just an interested engineering type who cares about power generation and emergency services, I wouldn't wait, I'd buy a Powerbox. If you have a problem K-Tor has the best customer service I have ever dealt with.
Does what it is supposed to do that is generate power.
Would have liked it evenmore than now, if it had come with a bracket/stand to which we can secure it. Pedalling it while sitting on chair as showed in demo is not possible right out-of-box.. Pedals could come with some straps to secure the foot on the pedal... etc.
(EDIT: 5 stars now, turns out I had plugged too much into it. The device adjusts the resistance automatically for the power draw, and I was over-loading it. Works great now. The way I was using it was actually the problem. Great response from the company, sorted me out in no time.
