4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Doesn't look cheesy, backup battery built-in. AC and car charger.
price was free after rebate, so didn't expect much - charges most microUSB devices well enough as a spare throwaway charger.

Cons: Cords are ridiculously short, but not a deal breaker

1 out of 5 eggsWarning. May come with a bad battery.

Pros: None

Cons: Device would not charge. Left it plugged in charging for 2 days and when I press the battery test button, it's completely dead. Shipped with a bad battery. Don't know if Newegg is just trying to get rid of old stock, but this thing was DOA.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor battery life

Pros: Comes with wall and car charger, mini and micro usb cables.

Cons: Poor battery. It takes about 4 hours to fully charge the backup battery. When I plug in my Samsung Galaxy S4, my battery will only charge to about 20%. Good for an emergency I guess, but talk fast!

Other Thoughts: Not sure why the kit specifically states iPod and iPhone.

5 out of 5 eggsPleasantly Surprised

Pros: A great source for a small amount of portable USB power.

Cons: 1000mah battery. (Would be nice if it was bigger, but then the unit wouldn't be nice and small.)

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I wanted a USB charger and it was free after rebate. I didn't even realize that it has a 1000mah battery in it when I ordered it.

I am now using this on my water cooler to power some USB lights. At night, when we fill our water glass, we cannot see how full the cup is while filling. This causes us to sometimes overfill our cup. I was able to affix a USB light and switch to the cooler. I plugged it into this POWERGO. When I turn on the switch, I installed on the cooler, the POWERGO takes a second to power on the USB light. (Not a problem, but I wish it was instant.) It's really convenient to unplug the USB connector to this, plug it into the wall for recharging and then then reconnect the USB connector to provide on-demand power to the lights!

With this POWERGO being so small in size (smaller than a pack of smokes), it can easily velcro it to the inside of of the cooler's internal storage compartments.

I'm pretty sure the manufacturer didn't have this use in mind when they made this product, but I wanted to write this review to let you know that it can be used as a portable USB power source. There is no switch to power on, on the unit itself. It powers up when you plug something into the USB port. This saves you from forgetting to turn it off and killing your battery.

It's perfect for what I need.

5 out of 5 eggsIt does the work!

Pros: Cheap (free after rebate) and it does the work!
It also comes with two USB cables and car power outlet adapter.
Small enough to carry in pocket.

Cons: It takes more than 4 hours to fully charge the internal battery, which is a bit slow.

Other Thoughts: When fully charged, it can recharge an iphone 4S from 2% battery life to 50%. So the efficiency of this charger is roughly 70%, not sure if this is on par with other products.

1 out of 5 eggsnot completely functional

Pros: Charges phone when plugged into wall

Cons: The batter function does not work right to charge after unplugging the unit

Other Thoughts: I bought this item with the intention of mainly using the battery capability with my iphone 4s. When plugged in via the wall adapter, the phone will charge. After fully charging the battery, unplugging it from the wall and charging the phone does not work. Occasionally it will make the noise as if I plugged in the charger, but the iphone will not charge. Practically useless for what I wanted to use it for now.

I have not tested out the car charger function.
