HALO 2800mAh Pocket Power Charger for Cellphones & Electronics
Sure comes in handy!
My husband was going to another property to mow for a friend and realized his cell phone was nearly out of charge. I sent the HALO with him. It worked great to recharge his phone and I felt better knowing he had a cell phone in case anything went wrong. It is well worth the money for peace of mind.
Since I got a smartphone about 2 months ago I use this almost on a daily basis with my Samsung Galaxy 2 phone and it works great. To recharge it you must leave it plugged in until the light is solid green. If it's flashing green the unit is not fully charged - an it does take several hours to fully charge. I usually plug it into my computer overnite but have also used another adapter to plug it into an electrical outlet. I keep one at home and one in my purse and switch off so I use them both on a regular basis.
solid, well made. Delivers as promised.
Only 1 of the 4 we bought was defective (did not charge a Droid cell phone all the way)
Got it for myself and I love it. The only con I have with it is that it has to be charged on a computer that is on for four to six hours. Outside of that it has been great. I keep it in my purse for when I need it. Bought a second one for my daughter and she likes it as well. My dog did chew up the charger cord. Went to Halo website and ordered a new one but was sent wrong item. Customer service quickly resolved the situation with me being happy. Would recommend th!is product.
Loved it, but then.....
Loved this for the first 3-4 times I used it. Great for travel, kept my iphone going. However, the 5th time I went to use it, nothing. No lights on the display, won't recharge. I see the warranty is 90 days, I'm going to try to work that process. I bought 3 more as gifts - hope I don't end up looking cheap if the recipient's halos also stop working.
I used the Halo while travelling overseas to recharge camera & cell phone. I haven't taken it out of my purse since coming home. It even saved me on a separate occasion when my cell phone battery was drained on an overnight trip. It's easy to charge in an outlet or through my USB port at home or work. It's small enough to carry in my bag or pocket. A true necessity in this day of tech gadgets.
I used this when on an out of town trip. My cell phone was low on charge with no place to plug it in to charge it. I used the Halo and it worked great!! I keep it in my purse at all times.
I read the reviews & i just used mine last night !! I bought it in Jan! & has been in my purse .. I have an i phone 5 I had no issues with it @ all my phone is fine.I was in a location & was waiting for a call.. my battery was @ 30% the halo was on yellow.. I talked for 4 straight hours!! & by the time i was finished I had a full charge!!!
When I got home today I charged it!!, It is now back to green & ready top go for the next emergency...
if you have a cell phone you need a halo!!
Will not work on Samsung phones
I tried it on my two Samsung products, smartphone and tablet and the adapters do not fit, seems like a neat product but because of this I will be returning the two I purchased.
I really like this little unit help me several times to make a phone call when I forgot to plug my phone in to charge. I bought 2 more for my grand kids and they love it too.
MY children say really works!
Bought for my daughter for Christmas and my my son for his birthday. My daughter has a I phone and my son has an android. Both say it works great for charging their phones when on the go. My son showed it to a few of his friends and now they wanted to know where to get it. I will definitely buy more for gift giving. Maybe even one for myself. And the choice of colors is fantastic.
I have been saved a few times by having this. Once was when I was on with Tech Support for my computer - you know how long that can take - and had to use it to keep my cell phone from going dead. I have had no problems with it. I am sorry to hear that others have but it's a favorite for me.
