RAVPower Dynamo-On-the-Go RP-PB09 Super High Capacity Power Bank (7800mAh Capacity / 1A & 2A Dual USB Output) for iPod, iPhone, Smartphones, Digital Cameras, Tablets and E-Books
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Heavy, solid feel.
- Intuitive design

Cons: - Box came crushed in shipping
- One of the USB cords was damaged
- Inclusion of *only* micro-USB cables
- Flashlight function doesn't work
- Power button may/may not work

Other Thoughts: When I got the package, the item was shipped in a bubble-wrap paper envelope. The envelope was shredded and the product box itself was crushed.

Upon opening the package, the battery itself appeared undamaged, but one of the USB cables was crimped closed and couldn't be recovered.

I plugged the battery in to charge it and it charged overnight just fine. I've since charged my iPhone and iPad happily with the unit, so it doesn't appear damaged from a functionality standpoint.

However, the unit doesn't seem to respond when I click the power button, and cannot get the LED "flashlight" function to work. This isn't a deal-breaker of any kind, but it does seem to indicate that the product could be damaged in some way. I'll continue using it and seeing if it has any further issues.

Overall, the product appears solid and satisfactory. The method by which it was delivered was not.

LINKSYS WRE54G Wireless-G Range Extender
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Loses connection early and often 11/14/2007

This review is from: LINKSYS WRE54G Wireless-G Range Extender

Pros: Relatively easy setup.

Cons: For the price, you could get better products. Loses sync with the router often. Cannot set the extender to a different channel than the source router.

Other Thoughts: I've paired this unit up with a Westell Versalink wireless DSL router/modem. The Linksys picks up the signal okay, provided there's no walls nearby. Once synced, it may or may not maintain the connection. It's currently around 20-30 feet from my router, with a bathroom between (in straight line). Sometimes it'll work for an hour or more straight. Other times, it'll bail for no apparent reason.

This could be related to my house (built in 1964) or other interference, I don't know. I'm not a wireless expert by any means, but I know that the extender should easily be able to hook up and maintain sync over such a short distance.

I'm going to look into getting a high powered antenna or dedicated wireless router to eliminate the need for this thing. Maybe I can sell it to someone who can get it working...
