Pros: Works well on dimmer switches. (I've had problems with SunSun bulbs which claimed to be dimmable, so this is no small accolade.)
Warm light for an LED light. Most tend to be a much harsher light. (You will pay a price for warmer light in terms of brightness--see other thoughts.)
Cons: Somewhat heavy for its size.
Other Thoughts: I would have to agree with other comments that it does not produce the same light as a 75 watt incandescent. However this goes with getting the warm light bulb. If you don't mind a harsher light, there is a 10 watt (same power usage) 905 lumen "Daylight" bulb by the same manufacturer which will be much brighter.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Decent price for LED bulb if you catch it on a deal.
Cons: Does NOT work on a dimmer, despite the product page's claim. Bulb flickered throughout the dimming/brightening and then flickered periodically after the brightness level was left steady. At the low power end, the bulb flickered constantly. On one fixture, when the switch was turned off, the bulb would still flicker.
Other Thoughts: Bulb seemed to work when not on a dimmer switch. If you aren't looking for a dimmable bulb and the price is as good as one that doesn't make that claim, this could be a viable option for you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Vantec Power Gem Blue 3500 mAh Rechargeable Portable Battery VAN-350BB-BL
Pros: This is the sort of item that you don't realize how great it is until you need it. But when you do, it's a life saver. Charged an iPhone 5 from 10% to full while in use.
Cons: The Vantec Power Gem itself is somewhat slow to recharge. The mini-USB required to recharge it means Apple product users will need to carry around an extra cable.
Other Thoughts: In addition to the iPhone, also charged a Tegra Note 7 tablet from about 1/3 to full, which seemed close to depleting the battery. So YMMV if using this for tablets. This certainly is not worth it at its "regular" price, but seems like this has been a promo code deal a few times. I grabbed one for myself and one for my wife at 9.99 each which is a great deal.READ FULL REVIEW
