1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: It was a decent price on sale (not worth anywhere near the $70 MSRP). It has a nice slim design.

Cons: The long charging time is a nuisance. And it doesn't hold a charge for more than a few days (not even the 155 hours listed in the documentation). A good battery should maintain most of its charge for a month or more. I have a cheap name brand Li-Ion cordless drill that's supposed to hold a charge on the battery for a year.

However, the main problem is that the battery failed. After having it for a month, I noticed that the aluminum shell was bulging. A sure sign of a failing/defective battery. Not to mention a fire risk. I had to worry about it while it was discharging (never put a load on a bulging battery).

I've been careful not to overcharge it. Even though a good battery pack should have a proper built-in overcharge protection circuit. However, since it takes several hours (at least 6-8) to get a full charge as shown by the indicator light, the only way to do that is by plugging it in overnight. And making sure it's unplugged in the morning.

I've only used it a couple of times and never to the point where the battery should have been at all close to completely drained. I didn't bother with warranty service, since I can't see sending this though the mail, even though it seems completely discharged (the only good thing about the sort charge life). That would be irresponsible and probably illegal.

So now I have a new useless battery that I'll have to dispose of as hazardous waste.

Other Thoughts: Use your money to buy a decent (and safe) battery pack.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money

Pros: It has a power button, and it looks very elegant

Cons: So, here we go. First, the tiny slip that is supposed to be documentation sucks. You can tell it was created using Google Translate, and it really doesn't say much about this device. Second, this thing can't hold a charge for spit. Using a USB charger that is demanded by this device (5V @ 1A), the LED lights up green meaning it's "complete". Yet when I plug it into my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, it will only charge about 15%. I have tried different electronics, same results. I have also tried different ways of charging it, same results.

Other Thoughts: I bought TWO of these, one for me and one for my girlfriend. BOTH exhibit the exact same issues, surprise surprise! Needless to say, BIG mistake.

I had an old, tiny Thermaltake power pack which my mother practically stole from me since she liked it so much. I think I'm gonna buy those instead, or steal it back from my mom.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works just as expected... Nice and small.. Good price..

Cons: Included owner's guide is pretty terrible.

Other Thoughts: The owner's guide just stated that there will be blue lights "twinking" when the powerbank is charging, and it will be a solid blue light when the powerbank is in use.. It seems to be - through experience using the product until it "died" twice (for testing purposes, as I saw some confusion over the color of the lights in previous reviews) - that the light will be illuminated blue while it's in use (the manufacturer was right on that one!), but when the device is being charged, there will be a RED blinking light... and once the device has reached it's capacity the light will turn to a solid GREEN light..

I prefer the color differences for the "stages" of use, but it would have been nice if the manufacturer indicated what all of the different colors actually symbolized.

1 out of 5 eggsDevice failure, company support MIA

Pros: Aesthetically pleasing

Cons: Device is manufactured by some obscure Chinese company called "SCUD group". Their tech support phone number leads to a disconnected line. Their website provides no information or troubleshooting tips. Their documentation or "user manual" is a credit-card sized flipbook with basic setup instructions and no troubleshooting information. If anything is wrong with your device, you have no recourse but to return it. Don't trust SCUD Group.

Other Thoughts: When I got the device, there was a flashing red light any time I went to charge it. I work for an IT department, so I have a lot of equipment at my disposal. I tried multiple iPad, iPhones, laptops, and wall-chargers. All of them cause the red light issue.

This topic is not covered in the tiny manual that they give you. The only thing it says is that when the device is CHARGING, there is a flashing blue light, and when the device is CHARGED, there is a non-flashing blue light. I get a normal blue light when I turn the device on, but when I plug it in, it turns red and starts blinking. Googling the device name or product number provides zero information, just people trying to sell this device. There is literally no documentation on this product other than what comes in the box.

Thank goodness for Newegg's excellent customer support. They refunded the purchase price without a hassle. I would not trust sketchy companies like this one if I were you.
