1 out of 5 eggsWasted money

Pros: Small, lightweight.

Cons: DOA. Will charge only for 1 minute.

Other Thoughts: Got the unit on sale. Left it in a drawer until I found time to unbox and charge it. Unfortunately that happened way passed the Newegg return period.
Overnight charged it the for the first charge. When connected to the phone (Galaxy S5), will only charge for 1 minute after pressing the only button on it. I referred to the 1 page, 10 line manual and there is not much to it so I don't think I'm missing a step.
For the price I paid for it, my time is not worth the hassle of dealing with Targus' support. It will be going to the trash can.

1 out of 5 eggsSimply didn't work

Pros: Low priced. Seems to have good build quality.

Cons: Simply didn't work. I plug it into the wall and it immediately had 4 lights, indicating a full charge. No change in behavior despite letting it charge overnight on the wall. Device never responds to button presses, and never charged any device I plugged it into.

Other Thoughts: This was free along with an SSD I bought, so I'm not losing sleep over it. I chucked it in the trash and just kept the USB cable.

5 out of 5 eggsDevice Works

Pros: This little battery pack came in mighty helpful in my deer stand.

Cons: The pack I got gets rather warm when the battery is charging. Not a big concern, but just something I noticed.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that this battery is quite small and may not charge your phone all the way. Nevertheless, it is very helpful. Pushing the button on the device indicates the charge level remaining. The battery has a capacity of 2000mAh.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works?

Pros: It will charge a phone enough in an emergency.

Cons: Won't charge any of our phones more than 50% with the exception of my old LG ENV 3.

Other Thoughts: It will save you in a pinch for sure but don't expect any heavy use.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a good purchase at all

Pros: Its small and light.

Cons: It worked for about 20 minutes. Now it shows that it has a full charge after 2 minutes charging, and then doesn't even turn my phone into the charging screen. I would save your money and the trouble and go for a high quality, higher capacity model. Do not buy!

Other Thoughts: Got it on sale for 7 bucks. Not even worth that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Has been reliable, and done the job for me. I paid 10 dollars and that was a good deal 5-6 dollars is a great price. I can charge my phone 2-3 times before it needs a recharge

Cons: For me none!

2 out of 5 eggs2.1 Amps my snowwhite @**

Pros: It was cheap. Better than nothing.

Cons: Charges extremely slow. Think it might actually be .5amps.
Can't charge iPad or a phone.
Got my Nexus 5 to 100% juice by using all the charge in the APB25US over 6 hours.

Other Thoughts: Save your money and buy a $40 one.
