HALO 2800mAh Pocket Power Charger for Cellphones & Electronics
So far so good
I bought this for my sister as a gift and she said it works just like it's supposed to. She loves it and after reading some of the negative reviews (yes I ordered it anyway) I asked her to really give it a try and use it multiple times so that we could be sure it was worth it and did what it was supposed to do before the time ran out on returning it. It charged her phone and then recharged, multiple times so far and is working good. I'd recommend this based on her results. *She did use it to operate her Kindle several times (mainly to run it down so she could make sure it would re-charge appropriately), but even though I don't think it's made to charge a Kindle Fire, it did give her plenty of charge time on it. It was slow in charging it but it did charge it and she was able to use it too while it was plugged into the Halo.*
Does not charge iphone 4 or iphone 5
Bought this for my daughter for her trip to New York. Did not charge her phone more than 30%. Would not hold a full charge. Threw it in the trash!
Doesn't last long
I bought this item and it only lasted a few charges. By that, I mean that if we plug the device into our phone, we have to hold it in place or it won't keep charging. It's beyond the time where I can return it for a refund. Very disappointed in this product.
doesn't work on all phones
Please be mindful Halo doesn't work on all cell phones as stated.
Found that out when I ordered the original 2800'
To late to return.
Great idea for those who can use.
Spots fell off
I ordered the original single charger in the pink/spot and I love it, bought others for my children. Unfortunately the black spots have fallen off - I always keep it in my purse, I'm not sure what happened. Hopefully they've fixed the paint problem with the new one. I love Halo products, so hopefully it was just a problem with the one I received.
I am an avid golfer and I use my GPS on various golf courses, sometimes I forget to charge it. My halo comes to the rescue. All I do is hook it up to my golf gps and I have more than enough power to get me through the current round and several more.
The other use we have found is for my son who is in the military. When he is out in the field he is allowed to use his cell phone, however, charging it is another story. With the halo he can be gone for several weeks and he still has access to his cell phone when he needs or wants it.
My home has 6 of the previous Halo portable chargers. So excited it now comes with the wall charger. My daughter and her two best friends all went off to college this fall, I sent each of them a charger with the Halo flash light as part of their move in package. They just love it as well as their roommates. I just purchased 3 new sets for Christmas gifts.
Do Not Purchase
I would never purchase their products. Used a Halo one time and it stopped working. Mine was over the returned period for QVC. They told me to contact the company which I did and no one ever called me back. Just chalked it up to a loss.
The best ever
I bought 3 halos back in the summer for my girlfriends and I. I bought it for our all days out on the boat and our husbands wouldn't let us charge our phones from the boat power because they didnt want us to use their battery power. All three of us girls love our halos. We all use them every weekend in the boat. The best part is if one of us forgot to bring our own halo we could share and it would charge both phones. Things happen way too much in boats so it is just safe. Not only do we love the halo, my 8 year old uses it as much as I do. He never remembers to bring his chargers for his games so he is constantly using my halo. I bought my 8 year old and all of his friends a halo for Christmas. The best gadget ever. It really does hold charge for a year. It also will charge more than one phone. Thanks halo for my favorite item that I never leave home without.
I purchased 2 of these halo chargers the last time it was a TSV....I had an opportunity to use while on an out of state vacation this past weekend. Got it out for possible use with my ipad and flip phone. Not one of the adapters could be used for my devices!
TOTAL waste of money
Didn't hold a charge
Very disappointing. I charged it for more than eight hours to start but it wouldn't hold the charge for a second. I moved it to different outlets and reread directions to make sure I wasn't missing something. Then I happened to bump into a friend who also had to return the Halo to QVC because it wouldn't hold the charge. Unreliable.
Not the best purchase I made
Sadly, after using item a couple of times it quit working. I tried several times to charge my phone and also my nook and it would not work. Very disappointed
