HALO Set of (2) 3,000 mAh Portable Chargers with Accessories
My family bought in excess of 16 (8 sets) last December, for gifts. We were all very embarrassed about the quality. Only 3 ever worked and they did not hold a full charge. Please don't spend your hard earned money. As most were gifts, it was too late to return them as friends were too kind to tell us about the bad luck.
I have bought many products from QVC and so far, these are the only ones we have had bad luck with.
We've had these for almost a year and just used it for the first time today to charge my phone. I turned the phone off the the charger lasted an hour and was dead. My phone only charged about 30%. Don't waste your money.
Stopped Working In less Than A Year :(
I bought an earlier version of the Halo. The pocket power which was E 223841 back in 2012. It still works. I gave it to my sister and bought these for myself and my daughter (Christmas stocking stuffer) because it had a little bit more power. 3,000 mAh vs. 2,700. This one and my daughters both start working in less than a year. Maybe it's because of the flashlight and maybe it's because of the plastic casing versus the old one had a metal casing but I am very very disappointed with this one. I just bought another one with a metal
casing from amazon.com. You guys need to take this one off of the market. It's making you look bad.
Why is QVC still selling this?
I purchased this last Christmas for my daughter as I thought it was a great idea. I should have known better. My daughter used it once and it was fine. She recharged it and put in it in her car for emergency use in case she needed it. She hadn't used it in about 5 months. Two weeks ago she tried to charge it and it won't charge, it won't do anything. It's just dead. The Halo is not inexpensive and it should work more than once. With all the negative reviews I wonder why QVC is still selling it. I am forced to give it a star rating or the review won't be accepted, so I gave it one. It doesn't deserve any. Save yourself the headache and just don't buy this. I'm sure there are others out there that are better quality.
Perfect gift and keep one for yourself :)
I bought these for my son and I to charge our cells. They are great on the go. I charge mine in my purse while we are out. They came in handy when our power went out.. Charges the phone and we had a flashlight.

I PURCHASED 4 SETS OF THESE HALO PORTABLE CHARGERS LAST CHRISTMAS...SPENDING OVER $150.00 FOR GIFTS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS. NICE IDEA, BUT WHEN PUT TO THE TEST...........THEY WOULD NOT CHARGE THEIR PHONES NOR THE SMALL CAMERAS....ALL THAT THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO DO. I THOUGHT MAYBE WE GOT A BAD CORD....SO SWITCHED THEM AROUND WITH THE OTHER ONE THAT CAME AS THEY WERE SOLD IN PACKS OF 2 LAST YEAR....STILL NO CHARGE...........VERY DISAPPOINTED,,, BUT WORSE, WAS A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY THINKING WE HAD BACKUP BATTERY FOR CELL PHONES WHEN IN REALITY, WE DIDN'T. SAD PART... NO ONE TRIED THEM OUT UNTIL AFTER THE 30 DAYS AS WE WERE ALL TOGETHER DURING HOLIDAY...WHEN EVERYONE WENT BACK HOME AND TRIED TO USE THEM............NO CHARGE.......VERY BIG WASTE OF MY MONEY....AGAIN...FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY.
Bought 6 of these for Christmas gifts for my family. Everyone loves them. Nice and small and cool colors/patterns for my young nephews/nieces that are starting to drive. I use my a lot comes handy while driving all day in a vehicle and you need a charge. You do need to bring your charger cord for the iPhone 5. The reason for just 4 stars it does take awhile to get a full charge on my iPhone 5. Great investment with peace of mind that you will always have a cell phone.
These are very convenient and easy to tote around. Arrived true to color description. However they need to make it clear that you have to work around the cords to make them work on an iphone. They need to make that clear, its annoying to think it will work easily when in fact you have to do some work to make it work.

Bought 6 as Christmas gifts everyone LOVED them, all still have & use them PERFECT gift
The charger won't charge
I purchased this during the X-mas holiday gave one away for a gift and kept the other for myself. I was happy with it for the first 7 months, but then my charger refused to charge. I asked the person who I gave it as a gift to and she indicated after about 2 months, hers didn't work any longer. So I called QVC because there is a year long warranty. QVC gave me the number to Halo2cloud. Unfortunately, all you get is an answering machine, no one answers the phone and no one calls you back (shaking my head).
I was good while it worked, I loved it, but now it was a waste of money. Everything is disposable these days.

The Halo is very cute and worked well in the beginning but after 30 days the lettering came off so you could not tell if it was charging and one of them stopped working.
I bought these for each of my 5 grandchildren, my husband and myself. They are a necessity to keep handy!
