HALO 3000 mAh Portable Charger with Accessories & Gift Box
PIECE OF JUNK
I WAS HESITANT TO ORDER THIS AFTER READING THE REVIEWS, BUT, I FIGURED FOR THE 4 EASY PAYS OF SO LITTLE, I WOULD GIVE IT A CHANCE, AND IF NOT, I COULD JUST SEND IT BACK.....WELL, BACK IT GOES, THIS "thing", IS A PIECE OF JUNK, AS ONE PERSON CALLED IT....IT DOES NOT FIT MY LATEST PHONE I GOT FROM QVC, AND ON MY SAMSUNG IT ONLY REACHED 75% CHARGED, ON MY CHROMEBOOK, IT DOES NOT CHARGE, AND ON MY LAPTOP, IT BARELY CHARGED.......NO MORE HALO FOR ME..........
I bought two of these, one for my husband and one for my daughter, for Christmas. Unfortunately I didn't read the reviews before purchasing. I gave them to them early after reading the reviews. I'm happy I did. My husband plugged his in, and although the green light showed charged, seconds after plugging it into his phone it died. My daughter got a similar result. I wanted so badly to get them these as my husband is in law enforcement and relies on his phone, but sadly, I must return both. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this item.
not worth the money
I bought 2 sets of these for Christmas last year. Like other reviewers said...it worked for the first month or two...after that it did not hold a charge and it did not charge my phone or any other device. It was 100.00+ wasted. I will not purchase this brand again.
Hubby is happy. I'm disappointed.
I got this for my hubby bc he has a birthday coming up in a few days. When this was presented last week, I started to order two because we both have the older version of this 3000 mAh Halo that came out 2-3 years ago. We've been in need of new ones bc both of our adapter plugs finally wore out. The connections are so loose on them that they don't even stay connected to our phones any longer. So, I was thrilled when I finally saw these "lipstick" versions back on the air. I only ordered one for my hubby bc I wanted to see if the "new design" was somthing that I'd really like for myself. Well, my hubby is pleased. It worked perfectly with his phone #Galaxy S3#. Although it had a green light showing when we unboxed it, it would not replenish his phone battery until we plugged the Halo up and gave it a FULL charge.
With that said, I'm so glad I didn't order one for myself. I have an HTC ONE and the new version of this Halo does NOT have an adapter plug that works for my phone at all. We have a bigger version #6000 mAh# that fits my phone, but the "lipstick" size is easier to deal with when i'm on the go.
I purchased 3 of these about 2 years ago. Mine was a hot pink leopard printed one. I have noticed that the charge doesn't last as long as it once did but it still works. I keep mine in the car and hadn't used for about 9 months and when I went to remove from its storage bag the print on the charger was stuck to the inside of the bag. Now all the cool print design just feels sticky all the time. The charge does not seem to last more than about a month compared to almost a year when first purchased. Mine is the original style that has to be charged via computer. And it takes over a day to charge it up now.

I purchased 4 of these for Christmas last year and they only worked for a few months. They would show fully charged but when plugged into our phones, they would not charge them.
I have had one of these chargers and really like it. I saw this one that has a light on it and I had to have it, love the convenience of the light on this charger!
Not dependable really...
I bought 4 of these for Christmas gifts last year. My husbands has died and mine will read as full but then when I go to charge my Cellphone or something it's reading empty before the device is fully charged..but..I guess something is better than nothing.
Just received this in the red.and was so bummed when after following directions.it never got my Samsung5 charged at all.it going back. Don't waste your money.
Waste of Money!
Bought six last Christmas for gifts. Wouldn't fully charge, or hold a charge. Trash!
I bought two of these chargers last year, and I am returning now to buy a few as gifts. I LOVE these chargers and never experienced any of the issues the other buyers have. Both of mine work great and I keep one in my purse and the other in my car at all times. I use my cell phone for personal and business, so keeping my phone charged is a must. When you do not have time to plug into a wall, these chargers have been wonderful!
I have not experienced any of the problems others are complaining about. I have had these charges for about a year I have used them dozen's of times they'd never let me down. I gave as a gift - no problems/ no complaints. I like that they take up little space, have a flashlight, & charge quickly & fully I keep one in my purse I keep one at work in my desk. I am looking at purchasing a spare pair.
