Pros: - Could charge my phone more than twice
- Reasonably Portable (a bit heavy but that is required with current battery technology).
- Clearly labelled power options, 5.1 V at 1 A versus 5.1 V at 2.1 A.
Cons: Mistakenly put the charging cable in upside down and the port became recessed. This was a simple mistake, not mishandling of the unit. Now the charging cable falls out. I emailed contacting customer support 2 months ago but never got a response. Disappointed in Fremo.
Other Thoughts: - I would not recommend this unit or company to others.
- They need to secure the charge port more firmly.
Pros: Functional cable
Cons: When used with a AC to DC converter rated to output 2.0 A at 5.0 V this cable throttles the current to 1.0 A. The result is that it takes much longer to charge devices that would otherwise charge much quicker. This would be fine except there is no indication in the item description stating this. One might "guess" this to be the case from seeing how thin the wire is in the picture.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a fantastic mount as it provides the weighted base as well as the mount device. I had one of these stolen out of my car (together with a 5-y-o GPS) and immediately bought another one to hold my phone I liked it so much.
Cons: The second one of these I bought had a bad suction cup. It would stay connected to the windshield but not the weighted base (I preferred using). After complaining in a review, I was recommended to clean both the base and the suction cup with ethanol. This did not help.
I ended up using gorilla glue to attach the suction cup and the base. This has worked beautifully! In reality, is there any reason to disconnect these? I am much happier with this setup and have never wished for the ability to separate the base and the holder.
Other Thoughts: Reading other reviews, it seems I am not alone in getting a bad suction cup. For this price, even if you get a bad suction cup, simply glue them together and you are set. Fantastic purchase!READ FULL REVIEW
