This review is from: Targus APB25US External Battery Power Bank for Smartphones
Pros: somewhat small, lightweight, comes with cables, led tells you current charge. leds indicate current charge is nice.
Cons: have to press button. Mostly typical chinese junk--long on hype but shot on delivery, lightweight-light duty, long recharge time, drained fast, i got only about 15% recharge on samsung s5 out of it while actively using my s5, so better to just buy an extra battery vs this darn thing. On the other hand, full re-charge to my sansa fuze while using so if lightweight duty and you want cheap on sale, then maybe okay. if you need heavy duty backup or recharge, look elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SCOSCHE USB12V2 reVIVE Black Dual USB Car Charger
Pros: About what you'd expect. Dual USB ports. LED power indicator.
Cons: LED lights up, so I can tell when it connects fine in the 12V socket of my car. It doesn't recharge my Samsung smart phone at all. .5 A, wondering if it's a power requirements issue, a cable issue (cable I have works everywhere else though) or a DOA. Not like these things are super complicated to mfg and test out before packaging I wouldn't think.
Other Thoughts: Maybe I'll get this figured out yet, but right now, this thing is a non-starter. A plug-in USB charger should be a brainless product, and I'm only out about $3-4 or so, but I certainly wouldn't have wasted my time and money on a non-working product. Not worth the time and money and gas to try to package and RMA it.READ FULL REVIEW
