This device looked ideal: Large capacity, no fancy charger, self contained etc.
Build quality mediocre...USB port was misaligned...
However, the biggest flaw was in it's primary ability to act as a seperate charger.
It wouldn't hold charge for more than a day or two.
So, if you charged it before setting off you may be ok for the first day.
I don't use it or carry it.
It does not work and is a waste of time.
I didn't waste my time trying to get reimbursed....so no comment on customer service.

HOLD THE PHONE! After using this device several times, I have realized it does not work very well. It charges the Kindle Fire only if the Sparq is fully topped up (all four lights show, just unplugged from wall), but it drains quickly and does not completely charge a depleted Kindle battery. Worse, if its sitting on the shelf, and charge level shows 3 lights (75%), IT DOES NOT CHARGE the Kindle AT ALL.
There is a possibility that mine is defective, so I have asked Zagg for an exchange ONLY IF THEY HAVE TESTED THIS WITH KINDLE FIRE. I suspect they have not tested it. Otherwise, I have asked for a refund. Hopefully someone will read this review before purchasing.
2/13/12 - I have arranged for n return authorization and full refund. To be clear, this unit DOES work, it just does not work for the Kindle Fire (and maybe other large tablets too).
I understand that they will not be making this unit, and have updated with a unit that has an on off switch. The size is a bit slimmer to it, but the same length. I also have that unit and I love it, although I just bought it in Nove and haven't really had a need to really use it full time.
I bought most of my units from Zagg but I have purchased this unit on line and I am sure I will be as happy with it as I am with my others. This one I am giving to my sister as a gift !
Do not try to carry this in your pocket. It is too big and too heavy. That said, this is a work horse of a battery. At this point it has replaced my normal charger and it allows me, in the middle of class, to take it out of my backpack, plug my computer in, and keep going. My longest class is 1 hour and 50 minutes. The other day I was down to 15% on my Macbook pro. I plugged in my Sparq and an hour later I was recharged past 50%. That night, without recharging the Sparq I plugged in my Iphone and was able to get it from 10% to 80% without depleting the Sparq and without being tied to an electrical outlet. So worth the purchase. losses 1 star for not being honest about its portability. But I am very happy with it.
While preparing for a two day swiftwater rescue class, I checked the device to see how much charge was left and discovered it was dead. I plugged it into several wall sockets only to discover it is really dead. It will not charge, nor hold a charge.
Really disappointed since I did not even get four months of use form the device. I guess I will have to depend on my dependable Mophie which unfortunately only has one USB port.
