HALO 2,800 mAh Portable Charger for Cellphones w/ Flashlight
I received mine as a gift and it so does the job for me. I charged it for about 8 hours prior to using it. I took it with me in the handy sack and did a lot of running around and when my cell was almost dead plugged in the device and continued with my errands. I was so pleased, and had to buy this one for a friend. You have to follow the instructions, if it's not charging your device, it might be defective, but if you read rather than just do you'll have a better outcome.
3 X A Failure!
I purchased 3 of these for Christmas gifts. None of them work! All 3 of them never kept a charge. DO NOT waste your money!!!
So Far, So Good
I bought two of these, one for each of my adult daughters living on their own. They have both used them many times with great results. My oldest daughter is a nail technician and has lent it out to many of her clients as they are getting services done and my youngest is a massage school student and a server and has also shared her power with classmates, coworkers, and customers, ALL of them asking to where she got such a thing. Hopefully, for this price point especially, it isn't short lived. I bought a larger more powerful version for us to use at home/on the road.
Do not waste your money
Charger indicates that it is charged..solid green.
Plugged it in to my iPhone 4. NOTHING.
So annoyed. Too late to get a refund.
Bought this item to keep with me when I travel. Charged my phone one time, not even a full charge and stopped charging. Flash light would not work. It was a big waste of money. Very unhappy and would not buy again.
works but annoys-not very functional
i've found this item to be rather sketchy in terms of design/construction of the on/off switch. at some point, while stored in its little pouch, the plastic "cover" for the switch separated from the internal parts it was designed to move. once located, which was not easy, considering the small size of the switch cover, & then put back in place, it now falls off constantly, as if it is too big for the internal piece it should move back and forth. as long as everything stays in the pouch when not in use, no problem. however, when the charger is being used, it must be left still, on a flat surface, so that the switch cover doesn't go tumbling away. if i lost it, i imagine i could just stuff a toothpick into the pouch & use that to turn the charger on & off when necessary. however, the flashlight component, especially if i am already in a dark environment, has basically been eliminated. oh well. nice idea but some improvements need to be made for this device to be as functional as i'd hoped.
all but one
You need to read the instructions carefully. The on/off/light switch is very small and sensitive. The charge is not enough for a complete charge but works in a pinch.
The only problem I have is that there is no 'tip' to charge my iPad. I have a call in to Halo; I'll post their answer.
A life saver
This Halo has been a life saver. I don't ever have to worry about not being able to use my phone because I have no power left. It has been 100% no problem. I love it.
Won't charge anything. I've charged it for HOURS. It worked once, but now won't charge. Should have read these reviews first!
It holds a charge for a very long time which is nice because even though I haven't recharged it in months when I needed it, it was ready to go. Now I need to get one for my husband.
We love them
Got one of these for everyone in the family that has a cell phone. They all love them. They work great fit right in your console or tote bag for when you will not be near a power source. Never have a dead cell phone again. Don't forger to recharge it after use. Recharge and put it back in it most useful place till needed again
Ruined iPhone 4S battery!!!!! BEWARE! Be WARNED!
I bought this for my busy daughter, who is in her last semester @ West Chester Univ, right down the street from QVC. It not only didn't work, it took the life out of her battery and it cost her $90+ to replace it! QVC was very kind, but not sure the manufacturer will uphold anything, very hard to deal with them! So BEWARD, be WARNED!!!
