This review is from: Lenmar Helix 11000mAh Portable External Power Bank for Up to 3 Devices
Pros: - Style/Size for amount of battery in it
- 3 USB Ports – two 1A for smartphones and one with 2.4A which can charge pretty much any Tablet. (Common misunderstanding - charging your phone in the 2.4A USB will not make your phone charge any faster)
- LED indicators
Cons: -Does not charge the original Galaxy Tablet 1.0 (but i don't have that one anymore so it doesn't effect me anymore :)
Other Thoughts: I have been using my 11,000mAh external battery pack charger for a couple months now and it has been a great.
It has allowed me to charge almost all of my devices. It does carry a 11,000mAh charge which is quite substantial and can charge my tablet especially for how compact the form factor is for the amount of battery.
I really like the style and finish of the product and the nice packaging it came in. I see now that they are also available in Red and White so I may just have to purchase a white one for my sister and a red one for my parents since they also liked it so much. Its size is impressive because of the amount of charge it carries. There are 3 USB ports for two phones and one tablet that are clearly labeled to make it easy.
There are 4 LED lights that tell you how much of a charge you have left, which is convenient because I can just press the button and see if I need to recharge before I hit the road for a business trip or anywhere really.
We took the Helix camping and it charged everyone’s gadgets (with their own proprietary cables, 30Pin, lightning tip, etc.) Needless to say - Now everyone keeps asking me where I got this thing. I think this is one of those products that you don’t really know you need it until you find out what it is, then you can’t live without it.
Pros: I had purchased this with the intent to use it as a portable charger for my phone while i am outdoors. It works great!
The solar charging actually works pretty well. With its two outputs you can charge via solar power or USB port and the USB cable is included. Its solar and USB inputs allow it to charge pretty much anywhere. Charge fully using the USB before solar. The solar power will charge it up to about 50-75%, however by USB it will charge 100% .
The built-in flashlight has options for a SOS strobe, or it works as a lantern that will light up a whole room with the liftable hook for hanging it on your back pack or inside a tent. its pretty cool at first click it has a beam, then SOS beam, then 10 LED lantern bright, then 10 LED lantern dim, then OFF so you can adjust it as you please.
I highly recommend.

Pros: This was just what I needed! It makes things soooo much easier. The ability to step away from my camera and take a photo with a remote is ideal. It allows for easy quick photos. When pressing down on camera during photo it sometimes causes a "shake". This remote works great on my EOS 50D with out the blurry photo caused by me pushing down on camera. Recommend this purchase!
Cons: I wish I knew about this before!READ FULL REVIEW
