2 out of 5 eggsbad parts

Pros: Small, Compact and easy to use.

Cons: The adapter pieces that come with it break easily. The part that plugs into your phone or device will break and come loose after only three plugs in attempts. There is also no adapter for firewire.

Manufacturer Response:

First, thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The product should not behave as you described. Since the unit is backed by IOGEAR's 1 year warranty feel free to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. The GMP1001B does not support firewire. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsTime to charge

Pros: Thin and light; five blue LEDs indicate charge level when button is pressed, and constantly during recharge and after recharge; multiple tips, including one that couples two USB cables for extending the two-foot one that is included.

Cons: Be aware, it is a relatively low-power device.

Other Thoughts: It takes four hours to charge, regardless of the amperage of the power supply that you use: 700mA or 1A or 2A A/C adapters or a computer's USB port, doesn't matter (the device self-regulates input power to 500mA, max., as stated in the included documents). It only outputs 600mA, max., so it will charge, but at a relatively slow rate. If the device is powered on and in use, the best it can do sometimes is slow the battery depletion of my older 3.2"-screen smartphone--a larger device is only going to overwhelm it more so. If your device is powered off while you use the GearPower to charge it, a 600mA output will transfer the 2000mAh capacity to your device's battery in about three hours twenty minutes.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Micro USB Tip = useless

Pros: Lightweight, the battery charges quickly

Cons: Does not come with a Micro USB Power tip. I contacted IOGEAR support, and was told I need to pay $7 + shipping for the tip.

Other Thoughts: This portable battery charger should not be listed as universal, as it does not include an adapter for the extremely common Micro USB connector

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The original battery packs sold did not come with this as an included tip. Mini USB was not the standard when this was first released. This tip is available as an option from the IOGEAR store. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

4 out of 5 eggsSlim size

Pros: Pretty slim size, easy to carry. Short charge time.
Good for backup power.

Cons: Not work with iPad at all. Not enough juice. Only good for small device such as iPhone or small smart phone. Wish they provide the connector for iPhone 5 so user do not need to carry another cable.
Enough to charge the iphone two times.

Other Thoughts: Should include iphone connectors, the power cable is too long, should make it shorter for easy carry aroud.

1 out of 5 eggsIOGEAR Black GearPower

Pros: I rated this product on 9/29 and I received an email from Newegg on 9/30 that stated:

"The manufacturer IOGEAR has taken notice of your review and provided the following response:
Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GMP1001B is a starter battery pack. You phone is almost at the maximum capacity for this charger so you may not get a full charge of your phone. You may want to look at one of the battery packs IOGEAR sells with more power for your needs . We make a variety of models to suite almost all needs. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

"You can also view their response along with your original review of the product on our customer reviews page."

When I clicked on the link all I see is my review, not the IO GEAR response so I thought I post it.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your valuable feedback for the IOGEAR Black GearPower - Portable Battery for Mobile Devices (GMP1001B). The manufacturer IOGEAR has taken notice of your review and provided the following response:
Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GMP1001B is a starter battery pack. You phone is almost at the maximum capacity for this charger so you may not get a full charge of your phone. You may want to look at one of the battery packs IOGEAR sells with more power for your needs . We make a variety of models to suite almost all needs. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

Cons: How would I know that "The GMP1001B is a starter battery pack" when the overview states: "This ultra-slim, lightweight battery pack makes it easy to charge your portable devices on the go, eliminating the hassle of finding a power outlet and/or charger. GearPower allows you to quickly charge your cell phone up to 2 times before it needs to be recharged.

Bundled with interchangeable connectors, you can charge almost any standard portable device in the market. Whether on the road, at home or in the office, with GearPower you can keep your important electronic devices energized.

Other Thoughts: I don't think it is to much to expect manufacturers to explain clearly that something is only a "starter pack" and to list the types of equipment that the device will or will not work with.

2 out of 5 eggsnot what I was hoping for

Pros: cheap

Cons: This device was supposed to be a 2000, mAH battery, however the most it will charge my 1800 mAH cell phone battery is 50 %, it also takes about 4 hours to do so. It can't even keep the battery at the same level while I'm using it.

1 out of 5 eggsIOGEAR Black GearPower

Pros: That I got them as a Shell Shocker and only paid $19.98 for 2.

Cons: After fully charging both theses devices as noted in the manual, if you can call it a manual, one charged my cell phone 13%. Then I tried the other one right afterwards and it too only charged it an additional 13%.

The phone charges correctly using a USB cable to my PC or standard house outlet. I've had it since 12/2012 so I know it's not the phone.

Other Thoughts: I had no idea I wouldn't be able to get a refund on these non-functioning devices. Newegg.com is forcing me to send them back so they can send me 2 more pieces of junk.
