HALO Starlight 2800 mAh Portable Power for Electronics w/ Flashlight
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!
Does Not Work
Purchased it and after 4th charge it stopped working. Just returned it.
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
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!
