V25827 - I-Tec Portable Power Station w/Jumpstarter and 400w Inverter
DON'T BUT THIS PRODUCT!!!!!
OVER THE YEARS, I HAVE PURCHASED MORE "STARTERS" THAN CAN FIT IN THE GARAGE. I USED THEM MOSTLY FOR FILLING UP THE BIKE TIRES FOR MY SON. LAST EVENING. WE HAD A BIG EMERGENCY WITH THE VAN, HAD TO RUSH SOMEWHERE AND THE BATTERY OF THE VAN DID NOT START. WENT INTO THE GARAGE AND TOOK THE UNIT OUTSIDE, FULLY CHARGED, TO START THE VAN. WITH THREE MEN AND A FLASHLIGHT, NO LUCK. THIS UNIT IS A DUD. I HAD TO CALL AAA, AND IN A SHORT WHILE THE SERVICE MAN JUMPED THE VAN AND LAUGHED AT OUR UNIT. HE SEES THIS EVERYDAY.., BESIDES, NOT HAVING CERTAIN PARTS, WHICH I DID NOT NOTICE WHEN I RECEIVED THIS UNIT, I WENT INTO THE GARAGE AND BORROWED THE PARTS FROM THE OTHER QVC UNITS STORED IN THE GARAGE. PLEASE DON'T SELL PRODUCTS ON QVC THAT ARE USELESS. THIS IS CERTAINLY ONE OF THOSE! BIG ISSUE TO REPACK AND DRAG BACK TO THE POST OFFICE! NOT VERY HAPPY ABOUT THIS!
Waste of Money
I purchased two of these because I had purchased another type previously and thought these would be great gifts. When it came time to use them they never worked or even held a charge. It was a waste of money and I couldn't return them because the 30 days was up and I held them for Xmas presents. What a disappointment!
Haven't figured out what to use it for yet.....
The main reason I purchased this is because my lawnmower's battery can never seem to hold a charge for very long and I am tired of driving my car around back to jump start the mower all the time so I thought.....BINGO! this is the answer. NOT. The ends on the battery clamps are too large to fit my mower's battery studs so it renders this useless so I am back to driving my car around back to jump it. I haven't tried it for anything else. I have had it too long to return it but it has held its charge (that is why the 2 stars). I will see if it can do some of the other things they claimed it could. Who knows?? I might be surprised - that would be nice.
Quality stopped too soon
The main charger is a sturdy design and packed plenty of power however the positive and negative terminal clamps were made of the cheapest materials. The clamps bent easily when opened and attached to the battery terminals and the spring attachment actually snapped off leaving the cable with no clamp. After only a few uses, this became yet another trip to the dump and a waste of money. Very disappointed!
My daughter bought me this Power Station and it has been so good and strong. I have pumped up tires, and started other peoples engines, played the radio so many times. I have had it for over a year and carried it in the trunk of the car in Florida weather and heat for more than a year. This all lasted for the first and only charge. Yesterday I charged it up again and its in the green over 100 percent charged. I hope it lasts another year. Its the best product. The only small thing that was wrong was that two little lights in the light source of five little lights dont work. But honestly, the three that work are enough light to light up the hood of a car to jump start the battery. I hope I never have to use it for a hurricane but Im sure I will love it even more then. Thanks QVC for bringing quality products like this into my life
Bought two of these, one for my suburban and one for my husbands car. (Thought since he travels all the time it would come in handy for the both of us) It never holds a charge. I have had to use it twice for a dead battery and it was never charged enough to use the cables. The light works great if you need one, its just an expensive flashlight.
The perfect emergency friend!
I got this for myself, but presented it for Hubby to make him feel better about me buying, once again, from Shop TV. The difference was this time he was happy about the Value Pays after playing with all the tricks the battery had and declared this a WINNER. Him being a engineer, this is saying alot...he is very critical about "Tools". After filling all 4 tires on his truck without being fully charged then plugging it up to a radio, light still burning, he told me he would feel alot better knowing I had this at home during his many weekends working out of town now that I had a way to get a light at least in power outage, something I am truely scared of while being alone in the back woods in the country, no neighbors.
How fun it is to make men think they just got a great gift for yours truely! LOL
No lady should be without this product, weither you travel for a living or stay at home.
I ORDERED THIS PRODUCT IN NOV AND HERE IT IS APRIL AND IT HAS STOPPED WORKING.DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!!!
Worst item I've ever bought
I bought 3 of these (1 for each vehicle) and so far it has never helped me. It's usually dead and even when charged it was not able to air up a tire or jump my car.
Waste of money,.,.
I Am a recent widow and live alone. So when I saw this on the air in December I was overjoyed, I thought this would be perfect for me in an emergency. Well guess what? Jan 1st my battery in my blazer went dead. Needless to say This JUMPSTARTER didnt work (Yes, I charged the unit) I had to use my car to jumpstart my truck .Well Back it went. Have to mention QVC was very nice and even refunded my shipping charge.
Will not hold its charge
I charged the unit for 24 hours and kept it inside our warm home. Two days later I checked the charge meter and the unit lost 1/4 of its charge. After reading some reviewer's comments, other shoppers experienced the same problem as I. Fortunately I'm able to return the unit before the 30 day trial expires.
I was very unhappy with this purchase. The only thing that worked on the charger was the light. This would not hold charge. I tried to plug up a small fan it would not work. I tried to plug up a small water kettle it would not work. This was returned to QVC. I will not buy another product by this manufacter. Also disappointed that I had to pay for the freight to send this back.
