RAVPower Portable Car Jump Starter Power Bank w/12,000mAh Capacity - Supplies Car Battery w/Boost of 500 Amps - Features LED Light & Dual USB Device Charging PortsEmergency Light
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 2nd try to post this review…This is my 4th RAVPower battery of assorted sizes for various uses. Two I purchased. This and one other were provided free with only a request for my honest review. All 4 have great quality, design and function; each easily worth 5 star reviews at normal full price. I reviewed my 16,000mAh one, joking it was so powerful that all it was missing was jumper cables...and (drum roll) here it is! This 39 oz complete kit including battery, hard case, 2 separate 110 volt and 12 volt chargers and jump and phone cables replaces a 21 lb. similar device with a lead acid battery I've had for a few years. Without case and chargers…battery, jump and phone cables only is 20.3 oz. Because of the 21 lb size, that one typically got left at home when I didn't suspect I might need it. This is so tiny by comparison! The 12,000mAh battery alone is 14.7oz. The internal electronics to jump a car battery must take up more space because it is quite a bit bigger than my 11.2oz 16,000mAh one, certainly beyond pocket sized. Still perfect to keep in the car for my or someone else's car/phone battery emergencies. So much better than just jumper cables especially if you are at a remote trailhead where you might not see anyone for days! ...or many other similar situations with no one else reasonably available AND able to get within the range of jumper cables. I haven't had the need to jump start a car with it YET, but other reviews indicate it works great...just give it half a minute to recharge the rundown battery enough. I did charge my phone on the 2.1A iSmart port that works very fast as expected. Each of my other RAVPower batteries has a minimal emergency flashlight built in. This one qualifies as a real very functional flashlight...bright! And one of the flash functions is a repeating SOS (… --- …) to notify others of your emergency. Bottom line, until they figure out a battery like this should be built into every gas car, this is as important to carry in your car as the jack needed to change a flat tire. With so many uses, you will certainly need this much more often! My wife wants this one so I’m going to need to buy one for my car!

Cons: You need to buy this BEFORE your car needs a jump....I wasn't so lucky!

Other Thoughts: If I could change anything, more durable (foam) case compartments would be nice and it would be nice if the flashlight had 2 brightness levels. Very minor. Hmm, and a pump to inflate my tires like the one in the 21 lb unit I have never used??? Not. I’m stumped at what next! Maybe someday a 110 volt outlet! Anyone want to buy some jumper cables?

1 out of 5 eggs Look out! 11/19/2012

This review is from: ABBYY PDF Transformer 3.0

Pros: None.

Cons: It should be expected ABBYY will look for any reason to disallow the rebate. For that reason, my submission a year ago on this same deal was done with extreme care to be 100% correct. After 3 or 4 months with no rebate received, I had some conversations with Newegg that seemed to go nowhere. Even with good documentation of the submission. After I had completely given up, it did finally arrive.

Other Thoughts: I never did install the software.

1 out of 5 eggs Rebate issue 03/17/2012

This review is from: ABBYY PDF Transformer 3.0

Pros: Waiting for the rebate to open the box!

Cons: Purchased with a rebate & carefully submitted every required item keeping copies of the submission. They Abbyy claim to have not received it. The envelope had a return address that didn't get it back to me either. Hmm. Makes this waaaay more expensive than I intended.

Other Thoughts: With the UPC symbol gone, Newegg can't take the unopened product back.
