Genuine Lenovo Thinkpad 9 Cell Hi Capacity Li-ion Battery 55+ for Series L410, L412, L510, L512, L520, T410, T410i, T510, T520, T510i, W510, W520
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Less than half the price compared to such batteries purchased in the past. More than doubles my laptop's lifetime compared to the existing 4 year old 9-cell battery.

Cons: Came somewhat discharged. Clearly been sitting on the shelf since April 2012 (mfr date).

Other Thoughts: Works great in spite of the age.

LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

2 out of 5 eggs LG HBS-700 was much better 02/27/2014

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: It's wireless and convenient to wear. Connects immediately to iPhone 5. Sexy voice feedback instead of tones for connecting, power on, etc.

Cons: Audio drops out often, chiefly when source is quiet. Seems like headset is trying to save power during the quiet spots, then has trouble starting up streaming when the source comes back. Dropouts can be as long as 5 seconds!

This happens pretty much *every* time the iPhone switches to the next podcast or music, as well as in the middle of some MP3. No idea if it's the iPhone or not, but the HBS-700 worked perfectly on my iPhone 5, so I tend to think it's the headset's fault.

Annoying tones whenever I use the volume control. I mean, really? Why do I need to hear a tone? I can hear the volume go up and down!

Other Thoughts: I wish the range were better, but it does work to about 15 feet and that's good enough.

I wish I had my LG HBS-700, but the battery stopped charging after almost exactly 1 year. I am thinking replacing the 700's battery with the one from the 730.

I have truly become addicted to this product line. I just wish LG didn't mess up this particular model.

12000 mAh High Capacity Dual USB Power Bank Charger

4 out of 5 eggs Great price, works fine 02/27/2014

This review is from: 12000 mAh High Capacity Dual USB Power Bank Charger

Pros: Charges my iPhone or iPad as quickly as if connected to an AC adapter. Also, it's fairly small.

Cons: Can only be charged through USB, so it takes a long time to recharge.

Other Thoughts: Since I bought this, I've heard of larger batteries that can also charge laptops, and which naturally are chargeable by connection to AC. They are about 5-6x as expensive as this. On the other hand, I'd consider one of those in the future because I travel a lot on planes and carry a power-hungry laptop.
