2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Pink 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-PK

Pros: Got a great deal on this battery pack. It worked as expected when I first bought it. The unit is nice and compact, especially compared to many other battery packs I've seen in use.

Cons: The unit is all plastic, feels little flimsy, but that could be forgiven if the unit worked.

My main problem is that the unit appears to have stopped working after not being used for a couple of months. The power button no longer responds, and I see 4 simultaneously blinking LEDs when I attempt to charge. The documentation (which is pretty minimal) doesn't specifically explain what the blinking LEDs mean, but it seems to indicate that the unit will no longer accept a charge. There may be a way to fix this, but none of the product documentation explains how to do so. At this point, I'm probably going to toss it in the trash.

Other Thoughts: I was hoping to use this for a recent work trip, only to discover that it was non-functional. Thankfully, I didn't spend much on the unit. The next time I buy a battery pack, I may spend a little more money to get something less cheaply built.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Pink 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-PK

Pros: I only paid 9.99 for this, and it works well for the price and its purpose. This is a lower mAh charger, so I use it for cell phones and tablets. I am surprised how efficient it has been so far. Its not a fast charge, but the product specifications are honest.

Cons: Its pink.

5 out of 5 eggsHandy dandy

This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Pink 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-PK

Pros: Can fully charge a Moto X or a Photon Q, with a bit left over to spare for both. Have also used it on a portable keyboard, GPS, and several friends' phones, and they all want one now. Highly recommended.
Also doubles as a hand warmer when in use!(don't let it overheat in your pocket!)

Cons: I would have preferred that they use mini-USB rather than micro, it's a bit sturdier. It takes a good long while to charge up, especially if totally drained. Such is the nature of batteries though..I'd rather it take a long time so it'll last a long time, then have a one hour charge for a handful of uses.

Other Thoughts: What a handy little device! Comes with a decent cable to charge with, and a rather nice felt pouch to store it in. It's extremely convenient to carry this extra boost of power for whatever USB device you have that needs juice. Very highly recommended.

1 out of 5 eggsVantec Power Gem

This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Pink 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-PK

Pros: i like the convenience of having a charger when I need it.

Cons: I just wished it worked. Charged it a total of three times and it charged my Galaxy S3 perfectly. Now it won't charge at all ... less than 90 days old.

This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Pink 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-PK

Cons: Got two units for gift to W and D so they have reserve power for phone or tablet. One was DOA out of box. Won't charge won't power up.

Other Thoughts: New Egg CS was helpful and issued a refund.

1 out of 5 eggsVantec Power Gem Pink 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-PK

This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Pink 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-PK

Pros: It has 2 usb charging for 2 devices at the same time. Easy to operate.

Cons: I would not recommend this product. It can not charge the LG G2 cell phone to full after 3 hours (battery charged 20%). I then tried my old HTC EVO Sprint Phone that is being used as a play toy for the kids, and it can not charge that one to full after 3 hours (Battery charged 23%)
So for the heck of it I tried charging my Windows Surface Tablet, and again very slow charging and the time vs. the charge capacity is not worth it.
I tried changing usb slots for charging each device individually to see if anything would change and nothing.
This product looks good, packaged well from Vantec, and looks durable.
This product is rated 3500 milliampere-hour (mAh) for charging. This SHOULD suffice enough of an electrical charge for a cell phones battery to go through a full charge, but does not. I do not know why they even have the dual USB slots for 2 devices to charge when it can not charge 1.

2 out of 5 eggsOk...but no cigar.

This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Pink 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-PK

Pros: It's small-ish and not expensive.

Cons: Nowhere near it's rated capacity...states 3500mAh but the reality is more like 2300mAh

Other Thoughts: The Power Gem doesn't live up to its 3500mAh rating, not even close. The Vantec Power Gem 3500 charged my fully dead, at 0% HTC One bringing it fully back to 100% but then the Power Gem was itself fully depleted. The battery in the HTC one is a 2300mAh battery...so this would make the Vantec 3500 claim only 65% true.

The Vantec is useful for an emergency re-charge for my cell phone...thats it. The idea that this unit could be used to charge an iPad while plausible the reality is it simply doesn't have the juice to be practical. You can try though.

Bottom line? Not a bad unit but just not a great one. And don't buy thinking you will get multiple charges for your cell phone - you won't. Ideal for your daily load out for emergencies.
