Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I bought! Great item to keep charged & in my car or purse! Different colors to choose from makes it fun. 01-12-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Total Junk Purchased two of these, first one lasted about a month and then decided to not work, returned for a refund. No sooner than my time to return ended, the second one died. Do not recommend, not worth the time or effort. 01-10-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible!! Bought this charger in November and by April it didn't work. I only used it three times!!!! Complete waste of my money!!!!! 06-29-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stylish but not worth it I bought these as Christmas gifts for family members. They had problems with the units holding a charge from the start. I offered to return them but they decided to keep them for emergency charges only. Since then, each one has only been used less than a dozen times. Now the attachment cords are separating from the base of each unit. I would hate to purchase another set of cords only to have the same problems, as the existing ones are thin and flimsy. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! 05-21-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dont Give This Item As A Gift or Personal Item I ordered about 10 of these for Christmas Gifts as well as one for me and one for my husband. No one was pleased with this item.. They said they didn't work. Didn't hold charge and were generally useless. I was very disappointed and embarrassed. 05-16-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Halo Amazing! came in handy during a power outage in my area and the flashlight and charger were such a good combo in one! now with all the new patterns will definitely be ordering more as gifts! 04-02-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does Not Work Purchased it and after 4th charge it stopped working. Just returned it. 03-29-14
Rated 2 out of 5 by Description deceiving Gave it 2 stars, partly my fault for not reading thoroughly. Part of the description says compatible with IPhone 5, another part says you have to use something from your IPhone.???????? Bought it because I wanted one to work for my IPhone 5 and I don't have the other attachment for it to work on my phone. So back it goes. Wish they would call it like it is. Heres to reading descriptions Really think it is overpriced now that I look at it. So big deal, it has a flashlight 03-08-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Device 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. 03-07-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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!!! 03-05-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. 02-28-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. 02-27-14
