5 out of 5 eggsGood MaH, Great Price

This review is from: Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices

Pros: Reasonable size, decent MaH for the cost. Price was right with coupon code. Bought an extra for a friend.

Cons: No built in light. Not that I care.

Other Thoughts: These types of power banks are handy for running all sorts of 5 volt stuff when you're out and about.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal

This review is from: Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices

Pros: Right price, quick free shipping.

Cons: None that I can see.

Other Thoughts: All newer external optical drives are about the same size and spec. This one supports M-Disc for archival BU.
I am doing some major backup in preparation for switching to an SSD. Thinking that M-Disc might be useful. Also planning on getting an Ultrabook type laptop for travel, this should be handy for installs from CD's.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so great

This review is from: Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices

Pros: Reasonably compact, branded (Targus) - made in China but at least you have a company name rather than the no name junk that works for 5 minutes before breaking and you have no recourse - seems to charge my phone quite quickly - 4800mh is probably needed, as phone batteries themselves may average, like mine, around 2200mh to charge

Cons: Puts out actually 1mh as far as I can tell, which is just fine as that's appropriate for my phone, but makes me wonder whether it would fully and quickly charge something like an ipad or other tablet. Haven't had enough experience to tell how well it will last, comes with only usb2 to mico usb cable - you'll have to get other adapters you might need on your own

Other Thoughts: So far, I'm quite satisfied

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

This review is from: Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices

Pros: Works well, no fuss, simple and well constructed, on sale often.

Cons: Don't be a sucker like me. Buy it when it's on special for as little as ten bucks.

3 out of 5 eggsIssue with cable

This review is from: Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices

Pros: Small, good price

Cons: The provided USB cable did not work. I could not charge the battery or charge my phone with the battery. Worked fine when I used another cable.

Other Thoughts: After I figured out the issue with the cable, the battery does what it is supposed to do.

5 out of 5 eggsMiniUPS

This review is from: Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices

Pros: Good BackUPS. Great price.

Cons: The supplied USB cable has a non-standard pin-out. Meaning, I couldn't use that cable from the Targus to charge my phone from a USB outlet, but COULD use the USB cable from my phone to charge the Targus battery. I am discarding the Targus-supplied cable and carrying a more universal one from an older Nokia phone. No big deal, but why have a USB/microUSB cable that doesn't work with everything you carry?

Other Thoughts: While in Kathmandu, I kept losing my internet signal, as my travel router was powered on the mains via a USB A/C adapter, and power in Kathmandu is off/on/off/on a LOT. I finally thought to power my APB27US from the mains and simultaneously run my USB-powered router directly from the Targus battery. It functioned like a miniUPS, and also charged during the process. Worked like a dream. I got this as backup for my phone, but this unanticipated use worked out ever so nicely. A great piece of kit. For less than $20, hard to beat.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat gift for anyone with a compatible device

This review is from: Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices

Pros: Does exactly what it advertises, and does it well. Reasonably priced.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 of these for Christmas 2013. One for my parents and one for my in laws. All of their cell phones frequently run out of power and this power pack should be able to charge them up again 3 - 5 times over. It can also charge their variety of tablets, cameras, and other devices.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Targus APB27US 4800mAh External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones, Tablets, and other USB Mobile Devices

Pros: Cheap price; seems to be nice quality; I get about 2 charges, maybe, on a HTC ONE; however, that is plenty juice for me. Also, seems to charge rather fast. I bought 9 of these for presents, and everyone seemed pleased.

Cons: N/A
