Rated 4 out of 5 by Happiest Buyer Unexpected surprise
I thought I'd probably be sending this back. Especially when I realized the gold was $10 more than advertized. But, lo and behold, it is soo pretty, and functional, as well as a conversation starter, I just couldn't bring myself to give it up! My only caveat is that I wish the cord that attaches to the phone could be dressed up a little.
Rated 2 out of 5 by MarGee Enjoyed using for 13 months
A beautiful portable charger! And I enjoyed using it for 13 months. Not sure what the life expectancy is for a portable charger (since this was my first), but I expected to be longer than 13 months. I would consider buying another one, if I knew it would last longer than this one did. Really love a case with some bling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kat1152 Too Heavy
I wanted this as a backup to carry in my purse. This is way way too heavy. I hadn't even opened up the QVC box and my first thought was "this package is heavy". It really was pretty but I will not be keeping because the weight!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Gkg Doesn't Last
I bought this last Christmas. It is pretty but heavier than expected. Also, it only worked till March so three months use isn't very good. I'm writing this review now as I had bought two other types of Halos last Christmas also and they stopped working after few months. If other people are having good luck with their's, wonderful. However, I think with three different types of styles to all break after several months is more than a having just one faulty product. Would never buy or recommend a Halo product again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by chucksbrother PRETTY !!
CHARGES MY PHONE FAST. I CAN GET 2 FULL CHARGES ON ONE CHARGE OF THIS PORTABLE BATTERY. ALSO LIKE THE LITTLE POUCH IT COMES WITH, VERY HANDY. I DO THINK IT WAS A BIT PRICEY BUT I HAD A CREDIT TO USE SO IT MADE IT AFFORDABLE.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Krita A LIfe Saver
I purchased this around Christmas of 2014, not knowing if I would ever make use of it -- more of a preventative than anything else. Well -- guess what? This handy and attractive device has saved my cell phone skin on more than one "emergency" occasion. A word to the wise -- you need to actually carry it with you in order for it to be helpful. This week, I find myself unexpectedly in the hospital, confined to bed for several days, and with no way for my short/short/short iPhone charger to reach the bed from the wall outlet. Thanks to the HALO, which has become a conversation piece for the nurses, I can stay charged up.
Rated 4 out of 5 by GirlUSA Very beautiful, months later it was still charged
Last December I purchased this beautiful charger after Lisa had it on her 12 days of Christmas and presented the item. I am one of the many reviewers that think the tastefulness of this luxury little charger is absolutely beautiful. Yes, it does have weight, but it feels quality, and not hollow. A week or two ago about 60,000 people in our city lost power for 14 hours - to 3 days during a storm. For me, it was 14 hours which was longer than anyone would have liked. My cell was only about 30% powered and I immediately thought of the halo that I had only charged once, last December. Gratefully, the charge was still there and my phone charged to 100% easily. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars vs. 4 is that charging the device is slightly complicated if you are not tech savvy, trying to figure out what plug goes to your existing phone adapter plug, etc. If QVC and Halo could post an instructional video attached to this and other item numbers of how to first charge and operate their devices, that would be wonderful. On air presentations usually do not cover this in-depth. Charging my phone with the device was simple (turn the power on and put your USB port into the USB slit), it was just the start up of charging the device itself that took a little extra thought. The small how to card with the device was a bit technical, and I was a straight A student.
