Pros: Works as advertised.
No problems reading SD cards ever
Small and as durable as it should be to survive a hard drop
Other Thoughts: Would highly recommend. It is worth the money if you need a card reading solution.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: +Charges great (good charging speed)
+Nice size. Not too large. Fits in your hand, but you should expect it to be longer than your hand is wide.
+Feels solid / Durable.
+Comes with a pouch for cleaner storage.
+Feels valuable (Has fair weight to it. Especially when fully charged. Lets say it weighs about as much as 5 smartphones)
+Comes with two charging dock points that can both can work simultaneously.
+Comes with a charging cable.
+The cable is around 8 inches long.
+The cable works as a charger for the main battery, or to be used "backwards" as a charger for Android type ports.
+Both outgoing ports are USB 2.0 so it is generally limitless.
+Tells you the power left in the battery via the indicator button.
+Doesn't heat up easily.
+One port for faster charging and another for slower. It is supposedly healthier for batteries to absorb slowly for a longer lifespan.
Cons: _The biggest problem is the ability to recognize power consumption and to stay awake. If you plan to use this for charging something other than a phone, It needs to be a power hungry device to keep this charger awake and going, on either port. ie, If i plug my phone in, it will only charge if A. The phone has lost at least a fourth of its battery. B. I press the power button on the charger and keep doing this every time the power indication light goes out (Which is about after 6 seconds).
_No on/off switch. It is all automated and operates by a single power indicator button.
_Maybe too heavy? It weighs about a pound or two after being fully charged, so it has some tug with gravity. Beware if you wish to travel with this. I can't be athletic with this on me. I can't even walk around with this in a pocket.
Other Thoughts: ~A messy trick i found that works fairly well is to have your phone charge, and run something else alongside it (If you have weak devices; Read on). This will require an extra charging cable to pair with the one that comes with this charger. I bought this to power a fm transmitter, and/or a mp3 player, but it doesn't like to charge either of these low power devices. It seems as if it doesn't realize that there are devices pulling power from it if the draw is too weak.
~I have fully charged this once, and, afterwards, charged my phone from a half full battery to 100%, and then used it as a source for a couple other devices at the same time, and i have never brought it down a single bar yet. I haven't used it much, but for what it has charged, i am surprised that it seems soo unphased. I have had it for a couple weeks, and fully charged it *overnight* once, and it since hasn't indicated any noteworthy power drop. It came in the mail 3/4ths charged.
**It WILL take a while for this thing to charge. I don't know how long from empty to full, but just a quarter takes a few hours.
Verdict ~I would recommend this to people who are more tech oriented and wise. Otherwise, there could be problems troubleshooting charging faults. Ease of use gets a 3.75/5. I feel it was worth the money and I'm happy about it.
This review is from: SanDisk 16 GB microSD High Capacity (microSDHC) - 1 Card
Pros: Reads and writes at reliable speeds. Not slow.
Saves as close to 16gigs as much as up to a couple hundred mb away.
Humble price at 5$ per card.
Other Thoughts: Would absolutely recommend this sell at 16gigs for 5$.
Would be cool if the casing was clear. Maybe even waterproof.
I dont remember if the shipping was slow. I've had this for a few months now and it has worked flawlessly. Even if the package was a few days late, it is still a 5 star sale.
