Q: What is the difference between this HALO and the previously offered Pocket Power 2800?

A: This charger has almost twice the battery power of the Pocket Power 2800 (5,500 mAh versus 2,800 mAh). This increased capacity allows the user to charge a greater range of electronic devices, including those that require a higher input voltage, like tablets. The 5500 is also designed to allow the user to charge two devices at the same time (assuming one of the devices requires a micro USB charging connection).

Q: Is this compatible with all cell phones?

A: Yes, the output voltage is compatible with all cell phones and will work with all cell phones provided the user has the appropriate tip to fit their cell phone or has a USB connector cable that came with their phone or was purchased separately. The cell phone industry has moved to standardize all the charging inputs to a micro USB connector so all new cell phones will work going forward. Cords or tips that allow the Portable Power Charger 5500 to work with all cell phones do exist in the marketplace.

Q: How do you charge an iPhone 5 with the HALO?

A: The user would need to use the white cord that came with the iPhone from Apple. Plug one end into the phone and the other end into the output USB port on the Portable Power 5500. A convertor connector is also sold that will allow a user to go from the micro USB tip or 30-pin connector tip to the iPhone 5 tip.

Q: Will this charge older iPhones?

A: Yes.

Q: Will this charge an Android phone, such as a Droid Maxx?

A: Yes.

Q: Will it charge older, non-smart, phones?

A: Yes, as long as the user's phone has a charging connection that is compatible with the three provided tips or they have a phone connector cable with a standard USB connection.

Q: Can it charge a GPS?

A: Yes, as long as it is compatible with the three provided tips or a connector cable with a standard USB connection.

Q: Can it charge tablets including the newest versions of iPads?

A: Yes, partially. See the Battery Life tab for details.

Q: Will this charge a handheld game, such as Nintendo DS?

A: Yes, this unit will charge handheld gaming devices. The three tips provided do not cover all the gaming devices in the market and the user may need to purchase an additional tip and/or cord to allow the charger to connect to their respective gaming device.

Q: Will it recharge a rechargeable digital camera or camcorder?

A: Yes, as long as the device is compatible with the three provided tips or a connector cable with a standard USB connection.

Q: Is the battery user replaceable?

A: No.

Q: Can the battery be replaced by the manufacturer?

A: It could be replaced, but it would be more cost-effective to just purchase new unit.

Q: How do you charge this unit itself?

A: There is a standard USB input charging cable built into the unit. The user can plug this into a computer USB port to charge the unit through the computer while the computer is on. The unit can also be charged thru an AC wall or car charger with a USB port using the built-in USB cable.(These chargers often come with most phones and all iPhones or may be purchased separately.)

Q: How long does it take to charge this device?

A: It takes approximately 7 hours.

Q: How long does the device hold a charge?

A: It will hold a charge for 12 months without having any noticeable battery power leak.

Q: How many times can it charge my device before I have to recharge the HALO?

A: See the Battery Life tab for the maximum charge cycles for some popular devices.

Q: Does the HALO have a charge indicator to let you know when to recharge it?

A: Yes, there are three lights on top of the unit that indicate the battery level.

Q: Can it be used in hot climates, like a desert?

A: Yes.

Q: Can this be charged with an Apple computer?

A: Yes.

Q: Are you able to make phone calls while your phone is charging on the HALO?

A: Yes.

Q: Does the HALO meet TSA guidelines for air travel?

A: Yes.

Q: Does your device need to be completely dead before recharging?

HALO 5500mAh Portable Power Charger for Cellphones & Electronics 3.7 5 413 413
Works Great I love this its so convenient! I haven't had any issues with it at all. 04-13-14
Total bumb Had it for 6 months. .then just out of no where quit working...got it because I do a lot of reports on my phone for work during the day..worked great at first..then just quit on me.. 03-27-14
Had trouble from the beginning! It worked great for a about a month. Then it wouldn't charge. I was going to send it back, but I gave it another try. It worked. Now it is not charging again. It has been a year. Im sure the warranty has expired by now. The sad thing is I ordered more of the same brand for Christmas gifts. I hope they last longer than mine did. That was just a back up charge, so I didn't use it a lot. Don't waste your money. 03-17-14
Starts off great but doesnt last I used it very rarely but when I needed to charge my cell and was not near an outlet it was great n fast.Only problem is out of nowhere it just stops working . I tried again and exchanged it but same exact problem occured. It shows a full charge and just stays lit but doesnt charge anything after I would say 10 uses each time about.. If it didnt malfunction it would be great ! 03-13-14
Very disappointed Thought thus would be the most perfect Christmas gift ever. Lasted about a month before it quit holding charge. Very disappointed with the money I spent. On the other hand the other one I got works great 03-11-14
zebra halo I bought this product in May 2013. It recently quit working.................would not recommend. Hopefully QVC will return and credit my account. 03-06-14
Disappointed I love the idea of this product. But I bought the previous version of this and it worked for about a day and then stopped working even though it was fully charged it would not turn on unless it was hooked to my computer. I exchanged it thinking that I just got a dud, but when my second one came the same thing happened. I wish it would have worked out because like I said I love the idea of this product but it doesn't do a whole lot of good when it doesn't work. 02-26-14
not reliable I purchased the previous version of this and it works some time, does not stay charged as claimed. I wish I would had returned it and payed more attention to the reviews. 02-25-14
Not worth the money spent It is cute, but very awkward to get the little doodads out so you can either charge it or use it to charge other stuff. My biggest complaint is that it doesn't hold a charge long enough. Half the time when I go to charge something the Halo doesn't have any power left to do it. I don't know if it runs out even when not being used or what, but it is a pain to deal with. It defeats the purpose. 02-14-14
Misrepresented Item - DOES NOT WORK WITH IPHONE 5S I purchased this charger because it was advertised to work with the iPhone 5S which I had just upgraded to. Having had a smaller Halo Charger previously that I liked to use with my IPhone 4S was anxious to have this for my 5 and IPAD mini. They kept saying it works with the iPhone 5 but what they really were saying, now that I read the small print is it works with their charger cord....who cares it will not charge my phone unless I buy a tip which is not included. Just tried this now and too late to return. DISAPPOINTED!!! 02-09-14
Doesn't work I tried to use this too late to return it. It totally doesn't charge my iPhone. 02-06-14
Great Charger This is a great charger to have on hand especially when traveling. Since I'm not terribly computer savvy, it took me a while to figure out how to charge and operate the item. I was disappointed that there was not a device to connect to the IPad mini. It is great for charging phones and the charge time is short. 01-29-14
