Pros: Router is very easy to setup. The Linksys smart wifi is very intuitive to navigate and enable features, make changes to customize your router and any necessary changes you would like. Setup took a total of 5 minutes once I was able to log into the router.
I also notice an increase in coverage for both the bands of wifi. In my 3600sq ft house there are considerably less dead zones.
Cons: I noticed very quickly that the router got very warm. It was set on a hard flat surface with no obstructions to any of the ventilation. The router was still very warm to the touch after only a few minutes of use.
Other Thoughts: This router has an app that you can manage the settings with. It's very easy to use, just like on a pc. The app might be missing just one or two features (the speedtest feature is the first thing that comes to mind).
Using the A/B/G/N band wifi I was able to achieve the following speeds:
Using the AC band wifi I was able to achieve the following test results:
Overall a nice strong router that will fill a moderate to large size house with a strong dual band signal. The user interface is very easy to navigate and customize to your own tastes.
I would recommend this router to anyone looking to buy an easy to use and setup wireless AC home network.
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PB10400 :10400mAh Dual-USB Ultra External Portable Charger/ Power Bank,2A Fast Charging, Compatible with iphone, ipad and all iOS and Android Devices, Practical Flashlight
Pros: The TP-Link TL-PB10400 is a small compact power bank with a large capacity. The TL-PB10400 is about the size of a Air Wick "WallFlower" you might use to freshener the air in your home. So the size in unobtrusive, can fit in the pocket of a pair of jeans, kahkis or a small purse without being too bulky. The TL-PB10400 has two USB ports for charging devices a 1amp and a 2amp. Obviously using the 2amp USB port decreases charge times drastically.
Cons: Because of the TL-PB10400's large capacity, it takes a while to charge from zero to full in order to use.
Other Thoughts: This is the second power bank I've reviewed, and the third that I own. The TL-PB10400 is the best device for portable charging I own.
The TL-PB10400 ships with the following:
1) TL-PB10400 10400mAh Power Bank
2) Micro USB Cable
3) Small travel pouch
4) User guide
*Notice this device does not come with a wall mount USB charger*
I tested the TL-PB10400 with the following devices that I own:
1) Samsung Galaxy S3
2) Nook HD
It took approximately 12 hours to charge the TL-PB10400 to full capacity after I received it. Subsequent charges took about the same amount of time.
Charging the Samsung Galaxy S3 (using a standard 3.8 V Li-ion battery) took on average 2 hours and 20 minutes using the 2amp USB port. I was able to charge my Galaxy S3 three times to full (from 0% to 100%) and a partial (from 0% to 35%) before needing to recharge the TL-PB10400.
I was able to charge my Nook HD twice (from 0% to 100%) before needing to recharge the TL-PB10400. It took on average 3 hours to charge my Nook HD to 100%.
I also charged both my devices at the same time using the TL-PB10400. I was able to recharge both devices (from 0% to 100%) with the Nook HD using the 2amp USB port and the Galaxy S3 using the 1amp USB port. The Nook HD completed its charge in 3 hours 12 minutes (very little difference from being charged solo) and the Galaxy S3 took 5 hours and 10 minutes. After both devices were fully charge the TL-PB10400 did have a small charge left, enough for approximately a half charge on the Galaxy S3.
The light does work on the TL-PB10400. For such a small bulb in the power bank, it gives a surprising amount of light. Although I think this is more of a gimmick, if I needed light I'd using my Galaxy S3 in flashlight mode.
Overall this is an EXCELLENT Power Bank. It has a VERY large capacity, is small compact and unobtrusive and can recharge multiple devices at the same time. I would recommend the TL-PB10400 to anyone looking to buy a power bank.

This review is from: FREMO P100 10400mAh Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad Air, mini, Galaxy S5, Note, Galaxy Tab, Nexus, HTC One, One 2 (M8), PS Vita and other Smartphones and Tablets (made by SCUD)
Pros: Very compact, has a decent charge capacity, compatible with many devices
Backup battery came in a non-descript box, had the battery backup, micro usb cable and instructions.
Cons: I wish the item came with a wall charge. I'm sure that the manufacturers decided to save a few dollars by not supplying the usb wall charger. Most individuals have a usb wall charger, or at least have a computer to charge the battery backup, although you would have to leave your pc on...
Other Thoughts: Took about 9 hours to fully charge the Fremo P100. Once.fully charged the backup had enough to.charge my Samsung SIII three times. First charge I had my S3 powered off, it took 2 hours and 9 minutes to go from 0% battery to 100%. Second charge I left my phone powered on as it charged, it took 3 hours and 19 minutes to go from battery 1% to 100% on my S3. I did not time the last charge as I was more interested in if it had enough to fully charge my S3.
Overall, I am very impressed with the device. I have used it to charge my cell phone numerous times.
