FREMO Elf 6000mAh Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad, Galaxy S5, S4, Note 3, HTC One, PS Vista and other Smartphones and Tablets (made by SCUD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Bang for the buck if you get on sale! I got mine for 10$ after a shell shocker + coupon code deal.
Solid Ports and connections, extremely well built
Aluminum housing dissipates heat very well, keeps the unit from overheating.
Power output is higher than rated, around 1.5A @ 5.0V
Flat profile and small size is perfect for keeping it in your pocket
Great power capacity for a unit of this size. Will keep your smartphone or tablet playing Netfilx all day

Cons: Does not have auto on feature when you want to recharge something, you have to press the power button for it to start discharging.

Not stated capacity of 6000mAh. After a few complete discharge and charge cycles, I have determined the actual working capacity of this power bank to be approximately 4000mAh.

Other Thoughts: As with all power banks on the market, the advertised capacity is never the true working capacity. The battery has to retain some juice so it doesn't go bad. You always have to figure about 50-75% is usable juice.

The Scud Elf, a power bank to be this small and this flat (the size of a iPhone 4s), 4000 mA is an amazing. It takes about 4 hrs to recharge on a 1A charger from empty to full. I wouldn't recommend using a 2.1 A charger cause it will shorten the life of the unit. I was really surprised as this power bank will output more power than it is rated. I would estimate about 1.5 A out, it powers and charges my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 even while I'm surfing the net and watching NCIS. My HTC One M7 loves it as its partner I get two full recharges.

This is a great buy, but i would not spend more that $20 for it, For a $29+ price range, I would look at a RavPower power bank, they have bigger capacities, great components and reliability.

TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

5 out of 5 eggs Great alternative if your Wireless N and AC cant penetrate washing machines 02/09/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: Great price @ $39, Im getting quicker response times to internet browsing, netflixing in HD, Amazn Prime Video and overall internet performance over my previous wireless AC 1200 connections.

Internet response time cut in half or more, Pings 5ms or less Near instantaneous web browsing and HD video playback.

Powerline connections between the adapters was painless and as easy as a press of a button. + Fast connections between Powerline adapters.

Nano Size is a plus!

Compatible with Trendnet 200 Mbps TPL-308s

Cons: Payed 22$ for a third single adapter, better off buying two starter kits when on sale!
100Mbit port in adaptor is what limits your maximum speed download/ upload, Computer to Computer transfer speeds no greater than 12MB / sec aka 100Mbps, but that isnt bad considering Wireless N struggles to transfer data that fast even @ 300Mbps connections and most of us do not have greater than 15 or 30 Mbps internet plans with our ISPs. Remember real world wireless performance is a lot less than advertised.

Other Thoughts: Bought this kit hoping that I would get more stable connections and faster network bandwidth. Im using several PC and mac computers, each with varying hi performance configs and some decent router hardware. Despite my investments, I was getting ok internet performance, 2-5 sec delays from from any youtube, netflix video, or any higher bandwidth using sites. Normal 1 sec delays between web pages/ emailing. IT was really starting to bother me. Switching my network everything to 5 GHz, helped some, but not enough. So After doing some research, these TPlink powerline adapters seemed like an good buy. So here i am, trying them and Im amazed. Im getting a solid 224 Mbps connection from my 2013 Macbook Pro to my FIOS router, with amazing performance. Im not talking about theoretical speeds either, Computer to Computer connections are @ 337 Mbps with better performance than my Wireless AC connections. Even @ 867Mbps Wireless AC, Computer to Computer file transfers were improved from 8MB/sec to 12MB/sec. I wish i had got the TP-link PA5010 with gigabit ports, but @ double the price, IM PERFECTLY HAPPY. TY NEWEGG for extreme service and shipping times! Got my package in less than two days!!!

HP DV6 with ASUS 867Mbps Wireless AC USB
Custom PC with TPLink 450Mbps Wireless N
2012 Mac Mini with 2.4/ 5GHz 300 Mbps Wireless N
2013 Mac Book Pro with 867Mbps Wireless AC

I live in an apartment where I have two walls, a washer/dryer. and 1 hallway between my computers and routers.

The Two routers: Dlink Wireless DIR 860L AC1200 and Actiontec (FIOS), all systems were connected wirelessly.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11S-4GRSL

5 out of 5 eggs Rock Solid Upgrade for PCs and 2012 Macs 12/16/2013

This review is from: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C11S-4GRSL

Pros: Heat sinks are small enough to fit without problems, works great in my 2012 mac book pro and mac mini as well as HP DV6. Low Voltage 1.35V for 3rd and 4th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7s. Iron Egg guarantee is always a plus. Stable as a Rock

Cons: None,

Other Thoughts: I looked long and hard for RAM that would function in the newer Mac computers. I wanted to make sure that I was matching the specs because the 2012 mac computers use 1.35V 1600 MHz DDR3L with CL11 Timings memory. Low voltage memory seems a bit more expensive than the 1.5V and I was not about to spend a whole bunch of money on OWC memory. I have always put G.Skill RipJaw memory in my laptops and custom desktop builds and have never been disappointed. Gskill always has lifetime warranty and in my opinion is better quality than the Elpida and Hynix memory I replace in my laptops.
