MobilePower 400 Watt Power Station w USB Port &260 PSI Compressor
Best Gift of 2013
What do you get the neighbor who's gone out of their way over the year, close family friend who's helped on firewood day, or your husband who already has every tool known to the free world? The MobilePower 400! This was by far the favorite gift this holiday season. Although a 'duplicate gift" (given to multiple recipients), EVERYONE who received it wouldn't put it down. In fact, to test them out, we plugged in the Christmas lights and lamps and ran "off the grid" for 3 hours, right out of the box! Now, they were purchased as "In case you get stranded" devices (I'm nothing if not practical), but every person claimed a different use outside a roadside need: music at the beach, grilling on the boat, camping and picnics, repairing fence lines with power tools on the "back 40," etc. Who'd have thought my decision to check off multiple people on my gift list would make such an impact? And the beauty of having delivery to my door saved me yet another trip shopping! Thanks QVC - It's good to be the Present Hero!
I have one for each car and they work great for jump starting and inflating tires.
I Bought this Product for my son . For the holiday I hope that he like's it. seen like pretty good product.
Works for Me!
I don't understand the negative reviews. I have had this for almost a year now, in the blue color, and it works. Have used several times, in cold and snow, to jump a battery in a 30 yr. old car.....worked every time. Had a low, low tire and it aired it up, a lil slw (4stars), but hey, it did the job and I was on my way. I keep it charged and it goes everywhere w/me in the car.
Great for Hunters
I bought my daughter one who lives out of town just in case she needed it. Well she had charged it up and it worked like a charm. Even though we have triple A for her she still used it instead of waiting. I'm now buying one for my son who is our hunter in the family. He drives about 2 hours to hunt for the day and has no phone service where he goes so he will be able to jump off the truck air up the tires anything he needs. It surely gives this mom a piece of mind!!!!
I had my doubts when I ordered it. But, I have got to tell you this. Charged the power station like it said.The same day it was done charging a young man knock on my door and said he needed help getting his car started, well my husband and I looked at each other and said lets put this to the test. My husband put it on the car and it started right up. We were amazed! Was glad to help him out. Little does the young man know, he is the reason I am giving this a great review. Don't know why the bad reveiws. Maybe they didn't charge it up enough when they first got. Thank you!
Never had a problem....
Not sure why the bad reviews. I ordered this last year. I followed instructions. I do not leave it charging all the time. I have used it multiple times in the same evening to help friends. They had large suv's and trucks. No problem. I've used the usb to charge my phone. I've used the work light. All with no problem. As a matter of fact the last time I even charged it was several months ago. The weather has gotten cold here and a friend needed a jump due to a bad battery. Hooked it up and after about 5-10 minutes it worked great!!!! I've had guys use it and told me it didn't charge until I went out and looked. They had everything hooked up but failed to turn the knob in the back. I gave it a turn....few minutes later...presto! If I remember correctly I have jumped off about 3 people since last charge. Works great!!!!! Perfect for ANYONE!!!
Worst Purchase Ever
The Mobile Power 400 Watt Power Station was the worst purchase I have ever made. It does not hold the power of the USB cable to charge a cellphone when there is a power outage, which occurred two days after I received the product. I followed the instructions of the manual completely. We lost heat, and the mini heater when plugged in did not work. Luckily, we have a fireplace we were able to use, and kept warm that way.
My son had needed a jump start, it did not work. I had to return it, and will lose my money for the shipping fees. I was excited to get this product, and highly disappointed with it. This is the first negative review I have ever given of a product sold on QVC.
Save your money!
Can't trust it
I don't understand why after charging this it ONLY LAST 20 minutes, and just a fan is in, my husband has been able to fill a tire, charge battery, but after 1 ONE use we gotta recgarge, the green light NEVER turns off, I gave it 3 stars cause if this had all it's funcions it'd be a usful item for any or all homes/cars
Wasted My Money
Got this for my husband. Unfortunately he never tried it when he first got it. Used it for the first time a couple months ago and it didn't even charge the car battery. Too late to return it.
So far so good
Really surprised with the negative reviews. I guess we were fortunate to have good one, for what we used it for i.e charging our cell phones and using it on a camping trip to play our DVD players it worked all night. Wasn't disappointed at all.
Usb will NOT charge phone, the electrical outlet wont even power a little heater. Wouldnt even jump start my car. SENDING IT BACK!!!
