I had read that this unit will fully charge within 8 to 13 hours of being plugged in. Some reviews stated to use a 2A charger for best results, so I asked Limefuel what kind of charger would be fastest. It turns out that the cable doesn't matter, but the power adapter (such as the white cube used with iPhones) does. A standard iPhone power adaptor will charge the unit in about 13 hours. A full 2A power adaptor (such as the power adaptor which comes with an iPad or Limefuel's dual USB power adaptor) will charge the unit in about 8 hours. Note that a power adaptor does not come in the box, but that's fine with me since otherwise I'm sure it would cost more and I already have ones that will work fine with the supplied cable.
When I plugged in the unit, no "charge" indicator lit up. After I pressed the button on the side, the LED (upper right in the picture) showed 4 green pinpoint LED's. After pressing the side button twice, the LED flashlight lit up. I contacted Limefuel again to find out if this was normal operation, and it turned out that the unit was fully charged when I received it! I left it plugged in overnight just to be sure, since it can't be overcharged.
The unit is rated at 13,000mAh, so I searched online and found out that the iPhone 5 battery capacity is 1,440 mAH. Doing a little math, with perfect efficiency, this unit should charge my iPhone 9 times before its battery is depleted! Since few things in life are perfect, I counted on eight charges, which would be fine for my needs.
The real test came when I used the charger five times in a tent in the desert to charge up my iPhone: It charged as quickly, if not faster, than the standard wall charger. After five charges (with iPhone battery level varying from about 30% to empty), the L130X still showed 2 green LEDs, or 50% power remaining. It's small and lightweight, though I don't think it would be comfortable in one's pants pocket. It's a breeze to throw into a backpack though, and can even charge two phones at the same time (there are two USB-out charging ports).
When using for the first time, make sure to detach the Lightning adaptor from the end of the ribbon cable supplied with the unit. One side of the supplied cable is Micro USB with a snap-on Lightning adaptor that plugs onto the Micro USB port. You'll need to plug this end (without the attached Lightning cable adaptor) into the unit with the Micro USB port. The other end is a one-sided flat male port that goes into a female USB adaptor (such as the square white power adaptor cube that comes with an iphone). Make sure that this male port is inserted with the connectors facing the connectors in the female USB adaptor (turning it the wrong way will face the port's connectors with the plastic tab inside the female USB port). That was really the only thing "tricky" about using it, and once you've connected it the first time then it's all second-hand knowledge.
I'm also happy that the unit is backed with a one-year warranty. It's a solid charger that works really well and is backed by a company that provides excellent customer service. If my experience is any indication, I think they will do very well in the future!
Update 6/16/14: Unfortunately, I must change the title of my review to "Limefuel Blast L130X is a Rock!" I was so happy with the performance of the L130X, had even used it several more times to charge my iPhone 5 after leaving the review above. Now it's time to charge the unit, however, and things are not going well. I tried charging it with the supplied cable using two different iPhone "white cube" power adapters at two different surge-protected outlets, but even after 8 hours of charging, the L130X isn't responsive (no lights anywhere) unless the side button is pressed, then one LED light comes on (same power level as before charging it). The LED flashlight bulb still lights up after pressing the side button twice though, so the battery has not drained 100%. I emailed Limefuel support, and they suggested trying another power adapter, as the iPhone white "power cube" has been known to overheat and will not charge the unit.
I borrowed a friend's HTC power adaptor and Micro USB cable, connected it to the Limefuel and then the unit flashed repeatedly for hours with only one LED lit up. I tried charging my iPhone with Limefuel's supplied cable, an Apple OEM iPhone white "power cube" and the supplied Lightning adaptor, but my iPhone wouldn't charge either. My friend who also has an L130X charges it using the USB port of his laptop, so I'm trying that next.
I'm all but certain that my L130X will need to be replaced. The battery unit itself seems to be a well-designed product that works well, but the cabling and connectivity issues are a headache. I will continue to update this review as things progress, and Limefuel has offered to replace the unit if it still doesn't charge using another power adapter. I have noticed from other reviews that many people use the L130X to charge their iPhones though, so it seems logical that the unit would work with the phone's original 1A power adaptor.
Bottom line is that the L130X itself performed very well from a charged state, but it seems there are some quality control or technology issues with the cable and power adapter. Since I've been unable to use the L130X now on two separate occasions when it would have been useful, I have removed two stars from my rating.
Update 6//17/14: After trying a myriad of power adapter and cable combinations, the L130X finally started charging. The only combination that worked for me was using the USB 3.0 port of my MacBook Pro (mid 2012) with a friend's HTC Micro-USB cable. After several hours charging, the third LED is now blinking so it's over 50% charged. The supplied white ribbon cable didn't work with anything at all, so I have asked for a replacement cable.
This solution works well at home, but isn't a very portable option when I'm not carrying the laptop. I'm disappointed that I may need to buy a 2A charger to use with the L130X in situations where I'm not charging it from my laptop. Maybe after the white ribbon cable is replaced everything will work better though, I'm still hopeful.
Update 7/2/14: After trying to charge the L130X with several different combinations of cables and power adapters, I discovered that my Apple OEM iPhone white cube charger no longer works. There's a shiny oval spot just above the USB port on the front of the cube. Since Limefuel support had mentioned that iPhone cube chargers have been known to overheat while charging the L130X, I emailed their support about the situation. Limefuel offered to send me a free Limefuel 2A charger along with the replacement USB ribbon cable. Since I loved the L130X so much before having these issues with charging it, I decided to go with the new Limefuel charger. I'm happy to say that the unit now charges properly with the Limefuel charger and cable.
Unless you want to turn an Apple iPhone power cube into a useless brick, however, I would strongly recommend not using it to charge the L130X. Either charge it from a USB 3.0 port (computer, laptop, etc.) or use a 2A wall charger such as the one that comes with iPads, or Limefuel's optional accessory charger. If I were the manufacturer, I would go so far as to include a warning about not using the Apple cube charger with the L130X due to this issue, but that's just me. Perhaps the unit will be modified in the future so that this is no longer a problem though.
So, I still have a great portable battery charger for my iPhone, but was definitely a hassle working out the quirks over how to charge it. The time and frustration dealing with it leaves my new rating unchanged at three stars, though I do like the L130X and plan to use it in the future.

why I didn't buy: Limeade beats the capacity for the price, and the Giant has a fatter form factor I didn't like as much

why I didn't buy: Perfect size, shape, and performance! But far too small capacity to keep up heavy use on a tablet.

why I didn't buy: Although a fantastic company and product, it has a larger form factor and price tag compared to the L130X
And of course the Limeade Blast L130X
I chose this product because it finds a splendid balance between price, size, materials used, performance, and all the best features.
For 12000mAh (milliAmp Hours of power) the Limeade is a steal, but it also includes these must haves:
*matte finish! - This means that it doesn't attract fingerprints, very important for a device that's going to spend most of its time in and out of pockets. It looks new and clean any time I show it to friends.
* Wallet sized - This is about the same shape and size as my trifold wallet - same shape, width, and thickness, but just under an inch taller. Keep in mind it is a lot heavier though. I took it walking with me in a back pocket of my jeans. You won't forget its there, it weighs as much as a soda can, but its comfortable form factor means as long as your clothes aren't loose enough to flap around, this thing won't stop you from acting normally while taking it with you.
*Dual ports, I've tested both ports and from either I can get about 30% battery charge on my tablet per hour, which is at least 1A output, and both ports can be used to charge at the same time
*Uses micro USB for charging itself, so android users only need to carry one cable with them
*Comes with a great cable that is iPhone 30pin, but this can fold away revealing a microUSB in the same cable, since my girlfriend uses iPhone, I keep this in the car where either of us may need to charge up. (This cable is not rated to charge tablets and is not the one I used to get the results stated in this review)
I have tested this device several times, and found it to charge my TABLET ( 3950mAh battery, small compared to iPad 2,3,4 but much larger than the iPhone or almost any other mobile phone) at about the same speed as my wall charger! (Wall charger spec'd at 1.35A output, my previous battery pack only charged at .5A)
Here is a breakdown of three charging sessions:
First session took 2 hours 9 minutes to charge from 40% to 98% with light use (wifi was on, and I used one or two apps, checked a few webpages) This was using the battery right out of the box and it showed 2 of 4 lights (indicating ~50-74% charge on arrival) it still had 2 lights on when I unplugged the charger, and it immediately noticed I had disconnected the device and powered off. I really liked this feature.
When I plugged it in the second time it again immediately noticed the tablet and started charging without me needing to press any buttons. During heavy use (online streaming and playing 3D rendered games) it took 2 hours and 30 minutes to charge my tablet from 24% to 62%, and then the Limeade died. It took all evening and that night to recharge the battery pack.
The wall charger for my tablet charges at a rate of almost exactly 30% per hour. This means that even while I was taxing the battery on my tablet as much as I could, the Limeade was able to not only keep it powered, but even charge it at a rate similar to my wall charger and far outpaced any car charger or other battery bank I have used.
There is only one thing I did not like about the Limeade L130X. The LED lights that display charge level when the device is on are very bright green, and in a dark room can be a bother. But worse is that they are unclear, they are so bright that it is very hard to see how many of the "4 indicator lights" are on because they share the same plastic frame. It just becomes a green smear that might be 1 light or 2, 3 lights or 4. This is a poor feature and could have been solved by using 4 separate pieces of plastic instead of 1. That being said, it is certainly not annoying enough for the Limeade to loose a star or change my recommendation, I still love this thing.
I fully recommend this product to ANYONE using a power hungry tablet or large smartphone who wants a cost effective way to charge on the go, or anyone who's lost buying a gift for a techie. I waited several months researching this product, but now wish I had bought it sooner. Don't waste your time trying to find a better deal, this is the one!!!
