HALO 5500mAh Portable Power Charger for Cellphones & Electronics
My Husband Loves It!
Got this for my husband last Xmas and he wasn't thrilled at first ... Then he got the hang of it and uses it everyday! We don't travel without them, and have enough battery life to text each other at different sporting events throughout the weekends!
A great purchase for our family!
Afraid it might just lose power to quickly
Just received this in the mail for a Christmas gift for my husband and I'm now charging up my phone with it so I can make sure it's working.
It had a full charge when I received it, but as I charge my droid from 36% to now 69% I'm down one bar on the Halo already.
I'm a little skeptical that this will only charge a device once before it loses it's power. Still debating on whether to send this back yet.7
Don't Leave Home Without This!!
I work for a major cellphone carrier and wished we sold a charging product this good!! This works like a dream! I never have to worry about having a dead cellphone ever! Best companion gift for anyone who's purchasing a new cellphone/tablet or camera this Christmas!!
Did not know what a Halo was until I saw it on QVC. I bought the Green Halo and have been using it for about 2 weeks and love it!!!! Everyone that uses cell phones or electronic devices should have one.
im in love with this product it has already come in handy ever since i bought it. i do have one problem with it i feel that the battery dies kinda fast after one use, i just use it to charge my phone in the little bit it charges it uses one of the little bars where you check the battery on the halo thats basically my only problem with it but i do recommend it. :)
My first 1 Star Review
I bought this and received it the first week of October, used it one time and I was really happy to have it. When I went to use it today while traveling on the turnpike..... the Halo which I'd fully charged, had NO charge at all. What's with that? By the time I paid tax and shipping/handling, I have $70.00 in it. Needless to say, this is a real disappointment, especially since I'm beyond the 30 day return policy. The only good part of all this is that I hadn't yet ordered to use as Christmas gifts, which was my plan.
I was so excited to get my Halo, but was disappointed that it didn't hold a charge. I had read that some people had the same issues, but was hoping for the best.
I was able to exchange it and have been VERY pleased with it. Guess the first one was a lemon.
It sure comes in handy, and it's light weight makes it easy to keep in the purse.
My only complaint is NOT about the Halo product, but about the very vague instructions. I realize it isn't brain surgery, but a few more specifics would have been helpful.
Bought two returned both. Would not work with our iPhone 5.
Cords short poor quality for the money. Nothing fit our phone or iPads.
SO when this was the TSV, I bought two of these. One for my husband and one for myself. I agree with the other reviews that the cord is just too short and it is annoying to have it dangling from the computer tower. I use a USB and plug it into the wall OR I plug it into a laptop. If I put up with those inconveniences, it's just fine. My husband is not having the same luck. He recharges his on a regular basis as he travels and is constantly on the phone etc etc. Well now his is barely working. It has to be held in a certain position or else, it will not charge (itself or another device). He called the manufacturer directly, because we are obviously past the QVC 30 money back guarantee. And we are hoping to get it replaced for one that works. I guess these things are just hit or miss.
Little Green Life Saver
I have been eyeing this product for quite some time and when an unexpected trip came up I went ahead and purchased using next day air. I was very pleasantly surprised that the item was received fully charged since I was not going to have adequate time to charge before leaving. This DOES WORK FOR IPHONE 5 as opposed to some of the reviews--you just use your own cord and the USB port to do it! I was able to charge 3 different devices while on my trip and still had half battery life remaining. You can also charge the device using the USB AC adapter that most of us use to charge our phones on a daily basis--you don't need to charge using your laptop. I purchased this in green, which has never been a favorite color of mine, but it is really cute! I will definitely consider this device a great gift for anyone who owns a portable electronic device of any kind. The only missing piece would be for it to come with a carrying case. I happened to have a perfect size case from another device which worked great, but having one come with it would be a great addition to this already super item!!
Waste of Money!
Cords are too short but I was willing to deal with it. After using it two times it stopped working. Past the 30 days or I would have sent it back. This is junk.
Easy to handle! Charged itself fast, and afterwards my cell. I have bought a thinner one prior...and it was useless. This one is big as a cell phone, but it works!! Not a 5 stars because it is big and heavy, as a cell phone.
