Very Pleased So Far
Pros: - Compact and retractable AC prongs which are handy for travel - Very sturdy made yet not overly heavy - I use it regularly for 60W PD for a laptop or for 45W + 18W USB-A and it always remains cool
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: I would recommend for anyone who want something compact they can take with them when they travel and want the flexibility to both power a laptop with 60W, a cell phone, or up to 3 devices at once.
Very Happy So Far
Pros: - Very lightweight, compact and easy to move around - 4 well spaced battery plugs, 3 surge plug, and USB charging in a small lightweight unit - Seems to be sturdily built - Decent cord length - Bought it on sale with no annoying mail in rebates
Cons: - I've had the unit and used it daily for 3 1/2 weeks with no issues so far
Overall Review: I bought this specifically for its portability. During the pandemic, I like to work outside on the deck on nice days to avoid being cooped up in the house. But carrying one of my 25lb 1350VA UPS in and out everyday was cumbersome. This unit is less than 8 lbs and provides portability and protection with more than enough power for a work laptop with large external monitor along with a personal laptop. Its perfect for portable UPS protection. I recommend this unit.
GREAT!!! (but not perfect)
Pros: Writing this review after almost 1.5 years of use. Paired easily to my Samsung GN3 and has always reconnected. GREAT sound quality and volume for music. Used several time a week at the gym and many times while working in the yard. Battery life is is great. Easily 20 hours of use for over a week (during the first year) Headset quality is great (used it for a conference call on a few occasions)
Cons: For the first year it worked almost flawlessly... every couple of month it just wouldn't turn on for a few days even after a full charge... after a few of days it would magically work again. Weird. After 1 year the battery no longer holds a charge. Still works, but I have to charge it before each use, makes it through a workout but has no charge the next day.
Overall Review: This is a follow-up to my 14-July-2016 review, having now owned it for 1.5 years. Last years review was 4 stars as I heard concerns about the build quality (felt flimsy) and mysterious 3-5 day "rest periods". This review is 5 stars after 1.5 years I have had no issues with the physical product... it feels very delicate, and am careful with it... but it has held together. For the twelve bucks I paid, I am very happy with the product, would buy it again. In fact am looking for the current model so I don't have to deal with the battery issue.
WONDERFUL PRODUCT! (But needs some reliability and build quality improvement)
Pros: Awesome combination of features and ease of use. - Sound quality is good - Pairing is very easy and automatically repairs - Battery easily lasts a month of daily use for 1hr/day - Easy to use... 4 button for vol up/down and track fwd/back, one button for power on/off and answer call - Bluetooth range is excellent and consistent!!! At least once a week I leave my phone sitting on the exercise bike and the music doesn't starts cutting in and out until I'm in the locker room (which reminds me to hurry back and get my phone) I use this daily in the gym and love it. I use it often for hours at a time when working in the yard and it is very comfortable. Been using this for 3 months now.
Cons: Can only give 4 stars due to a few issues (cons could merit 3 stars, but I really love the product) - A couple times it just stops working. Fully charges, LED shows fully charge, but will not power on. No idea if it is an issue with the large power button, electronic issue, or other. But a week or so later it will work again (so far). - Feels very cheap and flimsy. No issues yet, but I am extremely careful with it - Battery is a mini (not micro) USB... means I have to carry an extra cable when travelling
Overall Review: I think it was a good value for the twelve buckos I paid for it and I recommend it. If they fix the reliability issues and improve the quality/build materials this would be a perfect product and worth the full retail. If you have one and it suddenly seems to charge but not power on, just give it "time to rest" and check it every couple days and after a little while it may start working again.
