The device takes its power from two AA batteries, and produces a 5V 500mA output at its USB port. The down-side of using AA batteries is that it has much lower energy density compared to rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. The up-side is that you can quickly swap in another set of spare batteries (either alkaline or NiMH). This may be important during an extended power outage.
I tried to use this device (powered by two eneloop AA cells) to recharge my Polaroid PMID702C tablet. After one hour of charging, the red indicator light on this device went out, and the battery status meter of the 702C moved from 38% to 68% during this period. That means a set of AA batteries can only replenish 30% of the energy in my 702C's battery pack (3000mAh). In other words, to full recharge my tablet from 0% to 100%, I will need to use up 3-4 sets of rechargeable AA cells.
Although the above result looks discouraging, it actually makes perfect sense from energy conversion point of view:
- Each eneloop AA cells contains around 1.Read more ›
This charger has exceeded my expectations - it is very lightweight (24 grams), is well made and with my 15 gram AA Lithiums make for a 3 oz charger that can charge our GPS watches many times! Note the "flashlight" portion of this is more of LED - I would not rely on it as a flashlight and it will only serve to drain your battery. I am sure in a very dark spot in an emergency it might help you to see your hand in front of your face... but that is about it. Ignore this product for the flashlight functionality claims, but take it seriously for a no frills, lightweight, working charger - as long as you use it within its intended use and don't expect it to jump start your car or somthing!
Delivery took a while as this came from Hong Kong - but it was as advertised and I am thinking of getting another! Would recommend.
You could spend 20-30 bucks on a LiON external battery charger, but then that just needs to be plugged in when it's drained. With this one, you just feed it more AA's. In a pinch, you can use standard disposable AA's as well.
Complete waste of money.
I felt that it was not something you could have in your pocket for an emergency.
Simple and handy: slide open, insert two AA batteries, close. Done.
To use: switch from OFF to USB or ON. The light is as handy as any single LED flashlight.
As USB power - just plug in the appropriate USB cord and away you go. I have an old mp3 player with an almost dead battery and this unit keeps it playing and playing.
It also powers USB speakers and even runs my cell phone - I haven't tried a full charge yet.
Absolutely one of the best buys I've made. Recommended.
P.S. One potential problem: the ON/OFF switch is easy to move and sticks out beyond the case - it could be accidentally toggled ON - if stored in a 'hazardous' environment (where it bounces around or is subject to being moved) - a piece of tape or similar would be advised to immobilize the switch.

Bought 2 and both broken within a short time, also the "charge" they supplied was minimal. Only thing useful was the short USB to Micor SB cable that came with them.Published 17 months ago by Virgil Noffsinger
