    DOES THE JOB - BUT A LITTLE BULKY!

    Since downloading rebate apps on phone, my phone battery drains very-very fast. Prior to these apps, I didn't have to charge my phone, but every few days (seriously)!. Now that I have all these apps on my phone (ibotta, MobiSave, Shopkicks, SavingStar, Checkout51, BerryCart, KrazyCouponLady & several survey apps, as well) ...my battery barely makes it through 1/2 a day, if that! So I NEEDED something to extend it while I was out shopping or in general. I also use my phone a lot for taking PICS, which as you know also drains your battery. Then after shopping, I have to scan in bar codes on products & receipts by taking PICS to submit for these rebates, so more draining. Not to mention all the push-notifications that seem to be never-ending & ever-draining on my phone ...sigh, the joys of technology! ;-) It was through Shopkicks that I even saw the Dynex™ DX-2603 portable charger advertised for a sale price that I just couldn't pass up. I thought ...what have I got to lose! I knew I needed to do something! So I went to my local Best Buy, showed them the item, which thankfully they had in stock and made my purchase! I tell you what ...so far, so good! It has gotten me out of a crunch a few times, as my battery drains so fast! I haven't had it long enough to know "how long" it actually extends it, as I've never had to "fully charge" my cell phone with it (not even sure it will do that). However, it's made my cell last several hours until I was able to get home to recharge both cell & this charger. That's the important part, remembering to charge it AND bring it with me! My only "complaint" -though it may be the same with all external chargers, since I'm new to this is that it's a bit bulky & takes more space in the purse. Plus, when it's plugged into my phone, it does make it a little more "difficult" with using my phone, since it "dangles' from the bottom of it. I also wished the plug was a full sized to fit my S5, but I guess with so many types of phones out there, it's hard to make it work for all of them. What I mean by that is it only fit's into 1/2 of the plug. My phone has one plug, but it has a "divider" of sorts making one 1/2 larger than the other. Anyway, for the price, I can't complain too much, as it's saved me several times. I've only had it a few weeks now, as of 5/28/17, so unless it stops doing what it's doing so far I don't see the need to get another one that has more "power". So there you have it ...unless something changes drastically on its performance than this review will remain "as is"!

    While playing Pokemon Go with my kids it became apparent that I would need a charger on hand to keep my phone alive. I found inexpensive to costly chargers, one with all sorts of functions, multiple charges, sizes, etc. This charger ended up being the perfect solution. 1. It's expensive so I don't have to worry if I drop it, lose it, let it get borrowed. I actually got it BOGO, so it was even better. 2. It's small and lightweight. It fits easily in my purse and my pocket. It's not noticeable and so I can always have it on hand either always storing one in my purse or taking one on long walks through the parks without any bother. 3. It gives a full battery charge. I can either use it while playing on the go and it keeps my phone fully charged or use it when my battery is down to 20% and it will recharge the full to full plus keep it going for a while. It only does 1 full charge, but that is all I need and what I prefer rather then tracking how many charges I've used before charging. 4. It's easy to charge. After using it, I simply bring it in, plug it in, the light turns red, I let it charge while I sleep. In the morning the light is blue (signaling it's all done) and away we go. The charger is perfect for keeping handy and on the go full battery charging of my iPhone 6. Couldn't be happier.

    This portable charger is great for older phones that don't have a huge battery, but for newer phones the charger will not give a complete charge. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and this portable charger will not charge my battery completely. The speed at which it charges is decent if you aren't using your phone at the same time otherwise it seems to charge pretty slow. That being said, if you are completely stranded somewhere and NEED an extra hour of usage, this portable charger may come in handy. However, my girlfriend owns a Metro PCS Galaxy phone. I'm not sure the model of the phone but it is an off brand of the Galaxy line. Her phone is much older and not as battery intensive as my phone and this charger will give her a full charge with no issues. Bottom line, you get what you pay for. This is a cheap portable charger, no frills. It will do its job but don't expect it to do it outstandingly well.

    Are there better battery products on the market? Probably, if you're willing to pay more. But the truth is, these little Dynex units do everything I need them to do. They bail me out when I've let my phone battery run down. Why would I pay more for something else when the Dynex unit is already doing everything I need it to do? It holds a charge and gives me enough juice to hold me until I get a chance to plug in. I buy guitar picks by the gross and scatter them throughout the house so that I always have a pick when I need it. The great thing about these Dynex chargers is the fact that you can afford to buy a bunch of them and keep them in all your bags, vehicle glove boxes, emergency kits, etc. That way you always have one with you when you really need it. The most expensive, excellent emergency power source in the world won't do you a bit of good if it's in your other car or your other bag. Better to several less expensive models strategically distributed.

    My daughter and I needed a couple of portable chargers for our iPhones, since we are away from electrical outlets a lot of the time. At $8 apiece, these are very inexpensive, but I found they work exceptionally well. We charge them overnight, and in the morning drop them in our pack/purse, and when our iPhones get low on charge, we just plug them into our phones and we can continue to talk/text/stream for hours while the charger is actually charging the phone. Have not yet found out the maximum time the charger will allow the phone to operate since we have not come close to using the entire charge. A very good investment, especially in case of emergency. The only drawback is that you have to use your own charging cord for your iPhone, which tends to be a bit long. However, I was able to purchase a 4" USB to lightning connector cord, which works really well. It cost as much as the charger, but overall, still a bargain.

    My sister was really wanting a portable charger, but didn't have a lot of birthday money left to spend. So I looked for the best, affordable charger I could find and this one fit the bill. We looked at many reviews to make sure that it wasn't going to be something that only lasted a few weeks. We ended up buying it when it was at its regular price, $7.99, and at the sale price, $1.99, and honestly I will probably buy it again and again for my friends. Insignia has had some of the best, most affordable, heavy-duty items and for the price especially this one does not disappoint. The battery on this one is slightly smaller than the average new phone, but when you need a boost it will give you it. The only problem we have had is that the first charge doesn't last very long and it takes a few uses to be at optimal performance, like most batteries. Overall a great buy that does not disappoint.
