Top critical review
on November 26, 2012
In this day of supersized phones and other gadgets, this power pack will definitely come in handy. It will allow me to keep my charger cords at home, where they won't get tangled up in my purse. I'm sure this will come in most useful when I'm reading a page-turner on my Kindle Fire and I get a "low battery" warning.
Like someone else said, it's the same shape as an iPhone, but noticeably smaller and lighter.
EDIT: It's been almost two months since I've received this (and charged it that first day--which took roughly 40 mins to fully charge the thing), and I ended up needing to use it for the first time. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, and it was at 55% by the middle of the day. I plugged it into this device, and it got me up to 88% before it was pooped out; took about two hours (so, while the charger is quick to charge up, it releases the charge on the slow side). It didn't give me a full charge, but it definitely gave me enough boost for the rest of the day/evening until I could plug it into the wall around 9:00pm. Just make sure you're aware of this! I think it's a good value, but there are definitely other, more powerful devices on the market that can charge your smartphone more fully (and probably faster), but they will cost more. And obviously if you're using your phone a whole lot, it will drain faster, too.
