Poor Construction of a Good Concept
on April 24, 2015
I'm rewriting my review for the Swingbyte 2 fourteen months after purchase. I can no longer recommend this device based upon my experience with it.
My device is now in the trash due to a failed battery and cracked plastic housing. I've also had recurring problems with the rubber hinge and plastic cover for the charging port, both of which frequently came loose. Customer Service says the battery cannot be serviced, and can only offer a replacement unit - at a cost higher than is available on Amazon.
This is a great concept when it works - unfortunately the construction is poor and not durable. When I opened the device to investigate the failed battery, I was disappointed at the unprotected and unsealed circuitry covered by the cheap, thin plastic case. No wonder Amazon comments are filled with stories of broken units.
This was a Swingbyte 2 - hopefully the Swingbyte 3 will be better designed and constructed.
