RAVPower PB07 10400 mAh Black External Battery Pack Portable Charger Power Bank (Dual USB Outputs, Ultra Compact Design), for iPhone, iPad, Mini; Samsung Galaxy, Note 3; HTC One, EVO; Google Nexus

Pros: Charged up my Samsung S3 over 4 times on a single RP-PB07 charge. Customer service at RAVPower was very helpful and responsive.

Cons: nada

Overall Review: Keep in mind that this may take 16 + hours to fully charge up from empty. I'm happy with the product and the company.

I'm Happy with this Upgrade

RainMachine HD-12 - The Forecast Sprinkler - Smart WiFi Irrigation Controller. 12 Zones. 6.5" Touch

Pros: I like that I can now control my sprinklers with my phone or PC in addition to controlling it at the box. And I can use the app to see what I would see on the screen if I were controlling it locally, such as the watering history and the weather. Straightforward setup with a relatively easy to learn interface.

Cons: It seems they are getting close to having a rain sensor connector plug for the existing pins that will let the software override any rain sensor signal, instead of just using the rain sensor as a hard cut switch of the common wire. I had to mount it in a water resistant box to use it outside.

Overall Review: I like that it does not need a connection to the company server to conduct its basic business.
