HALO 3000 mAh Portable Charger with Accessories & Gift Box
was not compatible with my cell phone I do not have an iPhone or any other kind of phone mine just a regular phone my phone is just the regular smartphone sorry but it would've been nice if it did work it was nice to call her I got the zebra but it did not was not compatible.
Speaking for myself I purchased this on the advice of a good friend, who has owned hers for over a year, and I've had it for 2 months without problem. I've used it to charge more than one item at a time. With the silk like pouch I'm able to hold the halo, accessory USB cord and wall unit in a small purse without issue. I definitely recommend!
This one was defective
I gave this to my mother as a gift and she had to return it. It didn't hold a charge. I have one and it works well. A family member also has 2 of these and both of theirs battery doesn't hold a charge anymore and it's almost a year old. Its easier and less money to buy a cheaper model from your local pharmacy type stores.
Why Didn't I listen to the Negative Reviews?? :(
This thing is GARBAGE! I saw a ton of reviews stating this charger didn't work and I ordered it anyway. I used it just this past weekend on a trip to NYC and while trying to charge it on the train, it did NOTHING. The Halo was fully charged; however, it didn't even charge my phone at all. Also, I kept getting an "incompatible with this device" message on my iPhone. Also, while I know and appreciate it having 5 different charger 'types' to accomodate different types of phones -- these dangly adapters make the Halo cumbersome and awkward.
I called customer service to complain and I sent this piece of junk back in the mail today!
Don't purchase it -- it's a waste of money.
Smartphone adapter doesn't connect properly
I bought 2 of these...one for myself and one for a Christmas present for a pregnant lady at work. The smartphone adapter doesn't work worth doodly squat. You have to sit and keep unplugging and plugging it back in to the phone but other times it's the adaptor that goes into the charging unit itself that has to be unplugged then plugged back in. That is sitting at work with it sitting on my desk. I will be returning both and going to a local store to replace these and buy 3 other chargers as Christmas presents. The charger unit works well if I use my own charger but I really want to leave my wall charger at home where it belongs.
2nd Time's Not The Charm
I got a set of 2 HALO chargers last year for Christmas. Gave one as a present and kept the other for myself. It worked fine for awhile, then started messing up. The one I gave for a present still works fine, but mine obviously had something wrong with it. Was too late to send back by then. Recently got this one (same type as my old one) and haven't had for too long, and now it's messing up, too. I seem to have bad luck with them. Am probably going to end up sending this one back.
I love this item! I bought this last year and never had a problem with it. Instead of charging my iphone at an outlet in my house, I'm able to keep the phone with me while its charging on the HALO!! I love it!!
Bought set of two as TSV last year. My mother and I couldn't be more pleased. These have came in handy so many times. I don't know why all the negatives unless they just got a bad batch. Ordered 4 more for Christmas presents for my kids and Niece and Nephew this year since every time we see them, they ask, "Can I use your Halo?"
It didn't make it threw the first charge on my phone i returned it.
To cool for words :)
got the products and could not be happier! the case is an added bonus. Now I don't have to worry that my tablet or cell will go down when I am away from home. great price for the money and highly recommended !
The unit takes a LONG time' like all night- to get fully charged, then drains VERY fast. Takes FOREVER to even give a 1% charge on my little cell phone. Bought two.. one for me and one as a gift... neither ever worked right. Didn't find this out until the return time limit passed. Total waste of money. Now I do NOT trust the Halo brand. Now I hear "Halo" and I think low quality junk.
Poor quality product
This my first review on QVC after shopping on here for years. I have purchased 2 different version of the product they don't hold a charge long enough to charge anything. I do use and IPhone. I would charge it up needed it for long conferences to charge my phone late in the day Halo dead every time and I did not leave the flashlight on.
