MobilePower The BEAST 15-in-1 Multi-Function Jump Starter
I Love my Beast
My family has gotten a whole lot of use out of this item, which makes me very glad that I bought it. There seems to be some complaints on this item, but it has worked out great for us. My son lost the charging cord, but all you have to do is plug it into an outlet and it will charge up, at least mine did. I believe we have used every item on the Beast and they have all worked as advertised, you really can't ask for more than that. The only small issue I had, was that it is a little on the heavy side, but then, when you consider the size of the battery this would have in it, which I do appreciate, it makes up for the weight!
The Beast Still Going Strong After 1 Year
I purchased The Beast on August 23, 2013 from QVC and I charged it for the 24 hours as required for 1st use. The unit has been in use since day 1 and I use it least once a month for car maintenance on my vehicle and those of my family members (filling tires with air). I leave it in my vehicle with the solar panel side up so that it can be charged. Yesterday, on November 22, 2014 was the first time that I had to plug it in for 24 hours as the charge had fallen to half the bars. It is now fully charged once again. I haven’t had any issue with the plug falling into the unit but I definitely find the little chord used to charge the unit to small. I basically placed The Beast on the floor right next to a power strip and charged it overnight. If I could I would purchase more units to give to family and friends.
LEFT ME STRANDED
So disappointed. Previously bought a different Mobile Power Unit from QVC. It worked great. Although we never had problems it was recalled. I bought this item THE BEAST to replace the recalled one. Made sure it was fully charged. When my car battery wouldn't start after work I thought "No problem". Used this to jump start. Although the battery read fully charged it wouldn't jump start the car. Let it charge for awhile . Still wouldn't start the car. After 45 minutes I gave up. My Car battery was getting weaker and weaker. At 1a.m. I had to find someone to jump start my car. As another employee was leaving they were able to jump my car with their car. Thank Goodness I hadn't taken my jumper cables out of my car. It only took a few minutes to get the car started with the old fashioned jump. Unfortunately, it was beyond the 30 day return before I had a need for it. I am still making Monthly value pays on a product that doesn't work!
SO FAR, SO GOOD
I ordered two (myself, my 22 year old son, attending college). I was so excited when I saw. the broadcast. When they arrived, everything looked in working order. However, one unit, the ac plug retracted before I could charge it. I immediately called QVC, only to find my only option was to return it. I then called the manufacturer ``
Broken before first use
I purchased this for my mother for Christmas. I read most of the reviews so knew that I should check the power charger first thing. What do you know, broken. As always customer service for QVC is awesome and offered to send me another one but this seems to be a reoccurring issue. I called the Beast maker and they were very helpful and mailed me a charger that fits at the top of the machine.I I will update my review after my mom as used it. Fingers crossed.
what a bad purchase
will not charge
does not last very long when charged
Nice Unit,Everything Works
Was wondering if this was a mistake,when reading some of the customers complaints, i found this works great,came undercharged out of the box,plugged in charger for 30 hours was fully charged and tried out every outlet and jump start, worked,no problems...aired up my Hummer tires,and ran a 100 watt light bulb for an hour.....usb and 110v outlets work fine.....its a lot of goodies in 1 box,the LED lighting is nice also......Instructions are easy and should be read,before using
Best gift for College student!!!
This item was a gift for my daughter and she is only 18. She was able to operate this unit without a problem. She had to jump start her car within 2 weeks of receiving the item.
Gives me peace of mind knowing she has it in her car being so far away.
I would highly recommend this product.
I liked it so much I bought one for myself being a single mom.
now have 2
like the 1st one we bought , that we needed another now have 2
use to fill tire, jump car, ran lamp when power went out
Received quickly, took if out of box, read instructions, plugged it in for the required 18 hours for first charge. Did an outdoor vendor fair in the dark. Plugged in Christmas lights. Died less than 2 hours later. I was disappointed sitting in the dark.
The only problem I have with this item is.... I can't keep it home. My friends and family need to get one for themselves. They keep asking where I got it ,"QVC of course ,my favorite shopping network." I get a little nervous every time someone borrows it because I am afraid it won't find it's way back home.

I am very disappointed with this Beast. I only used this item 3 times. Once to put air in my tire, I used the flashlight and once when my power in my house when out to use my laptop Now that I really need it will not charge. I contacted the company and they send me a another charger, but still it will not charge. I am very disappointed that I only used the Beast 3 times
