3 out of 5 eggsLow quality but great idea

Pros: Recharges my Nexus5 from 60% to 100% on new NiMH batteries. Very practical and creative idea/design.

Cons: Was dead on arrival. Wouldn't work at all. I am being very generous when I give in 3 eggs because I like the idea/design of using rechargeable AAs for this application. I was going to return it but the cost of shipping made it such that it wasn't even worth returning. Rather than have a paper weight though I opened it up to see if there were any obvious manufacturing defects that I could fix myself. I poked around and didn't find anything wrong. When I put it back together again it worked fine after that.

Other Thoughts: I would gladly pay more for this device if it was just higher quality. One appeal of the design is the idea that when the batteries die from old age/use you can replace them with new rechargeable AA batteries. However given the apparent low quality of the manufacturing of this device I would not be surprised if it just stops working again.

1 out of 5 eggsWould not charge anything

Pros: Only good thing was that the company was responsive and provided a warranty replacement.

Cons: Tried charging my Droid X, Razr Maxx, and an old LG Accolade. Wouldn't charge anything so got a warranty replacement and that one did nothing either. Worthless.

3 out of 5 eggsInteresting concept

Pros: It can recharge AA batteries (NiMH only) or use them to charge something else.

Cons: It doesn't fully charge high-capacity batteries ( > 1800 mAh). And it doesn't deliver much of a charge to other devices, but that may just be a limitation of the batteries.

Other Thoughts: Unusual in that it works both ways with AAs. I'd give it 5 eggs if it delivered a full charge. Still, it may be worth buying if you get a good sale price.

1 out of 5 eggsWill not charge most of my devices

Pros: Cool. Charges in it's own case, Adapters for charging several popular ports. all of my phones and tablet.

Cons: Will not charge most of my devices. It would work for making a call when battery is dead. but will only charge to 15 or 20%.

Other Thoughts: Might work better with non rechargeable batteries.

4 out of 5 eggsHas USB _input_ jack for recharging itself

Pros: This has a mini-USB _input_ jack for recharging itself, and will also operate normally while getting power that way.

Cons: How it recharges its own batteries is not clear from Newegg nor from the mgr FAQ for the product (which actually says it needs a device with a "power jack" to do this). You have to pull the PDF data sheet to find out how recharging the MP1580 works. Docked an egg for that.

5 out of 5 eggsTekkeon mobile

Pros: Upon receiving this device I was impressed right away, it looks and feels solid and the quality is outstanding for the cost of this. Its quite attractive as well and the alumni finish and plastic parts fit snug and tight. The included adapters feel the same fit tight and are quality made,

Cons: Not sure if its a con, the included retractable cord for the usb to device seems thin even though its good quality not sure how long this would last, I just use my original usb to mini usb and only use the other for in house changing

Other Thoughts: This device was the perfect setup for the charging and or backup battery for my phone android, tablet, iphone, and or anything u wud need 5v power. It has a led power lite for letting u know the condition left on batt, and when charging a red lite on the back when charging.It works like a charm, I use the eneloop batteries there the best out there, can charge over 1,000 times and are high 2,000mah they hold there power even when setting for months at a time. great combo with the Tekkeon, it feels good in the hand, and still small enough to have in shirt pocket or pants.
