Intec G5614 is great in concept, poor in execution
on December 6, 2009
Similar issues encountered as decribed by several other recent reviews. We received this docking/cooling/recharging unit as a gift in March 2009. Nine months later, the only thing that works is the fan and the blue lights. The aesthetic design is very pleasing to the eye, but the technical construct is terrible. We do not notice the fan noise as a problem, but the charging cradle is very poorly designed. You simply cannot fit the remote into the cradle without first carefully maneuvering the strap to the side, pulling it up, while pushing the remote down into the charge base cradle. It is difficult for an adult to negotiate, and virtually impossible for a 9-year old. It would have been nice to design a charging base that could accommodate placement with a skin. I realize that maybe too much to ask, but at least if we're going through all the effort of "de-skinning" the remote before charging, let the cradle easily accommodate the landing! The biggest issue of all is that the rechargeable packs are kaput after 9 months of use. They no longer maintain the charge, deeming the docking unit worthless, except for the cooling and the "cool" blue light illumination. I would say don't waste your money on this product, but then again, they appear to be off the market. We are researching better options.
