    Good for its Purpose

    |
    Posted .

    At $9.74 ( now $12.99) it is a colorful lightweight, easily carried, Emergency backup. I stress Emergency because other reviewers complained it didn't hold a charge through many cycles or fully charge their device. If that is what you are looking for, pay the price and buy a device that will do the job. For less than $10 I have a spare Emergency device to charge my phone enough to make an emergency call, take a few extra special photos, etc. I can carry it with me easily and if it gets lost, I am not out that much. The higher priced, better quality, longer lasting, more charging capability device is kept in a safer, less easily accessible location. Use the inexpensive device as a quick "carry over" until you can fully charge.

    1AMP out, convenient to carry, great for iphone

    Posted .

    It only provides 1 AMP (5 Watts) of power out which is what the iphone charger provides. If you have a device that needs 2.4 AMPS, this will not charge. It is small and easy to carry. Perfect for kids' backpacks. Comes with micro-USB cable for charging but no charger. The teal color is nice. Charging of the battery and use of the battery simultaneously is not recommend. Has red LED when charging and blue LED when using the battery. Provides 9.36 watt-hours of power. Please look at the photo.

    so nice to have a comfortable of confidence and sleek appearance all in one product. I couldn't be happier. You get what you pay for, and in this case you have wealth when you have the Insignia™ - Portable Charger. Don't be lost in the dark....

    This portable phone charger is great for a quick trip to the store and back home, but don’t plan on using it for the day if you forgot to FULLY charge your phone.

    small but useful

    This little charger is small, doesn't take very long to recharge (ave. 30-45 min.) and will recharge my phone 2-3 times from a 20%of charge remaining level. Handy to carry in my car because it is small. Well worth a look..

    Excellent Portable Charger

    Purchased for my child attending college who is always on Phone and normally battery would die halfway thru the day. Now while in class the phone is charging while professor is giving lecture. No more worries that phone will be dead incase of an emergency or while walking around campus at night. Am alittle more peaceful now knowing phone is always available to use.

    Owned for more than 2 years when reviewed.

    this is a great little battery backup. They tend to regularly go on sale which is when I try to grab a bunch of them. I tend to lose these little guys left and right and oftentimes we'll hand one over to a friend if they need one in a pinch. They're great for that kind of use wouldn't recommend expecting it to have significantly long longevity and I couldn't speak to that either since I go through them quite quickly period either way I recommend them if the price point is set at the average amount or lower. If you're looking to stock up just keep an eye on these.

    Awesome little power source!

    |
    Posted .

    I was excited to pick up this portable charger to keep in my purse as a source to boost my phone if it gets low when I'm out and about. It really puts out a lot of juice! I carried it with me during the Women's March, and I was able to get my phone from 30% to 100% twice throughout the day. I will advise that it does get HOT while it's charging, so be careful where you keep it during that time. Also, it takes a while to fully charge a phone, but that's okay since I usually only use it to add an extra 10-20% battery life. A great, inexpensive charger!

    Can't beat this external battery

    For the price, you can't beat it. Small form factor and stores a solid charge for powering your devices. My iPhone, iPad, MP3 player all work well when powered.

    Does the job

    This is your basic no frills charger. I wish it charged faster - it takes several hours for it to charge. It only has about 2 hours worth of power for iPods or iPhones, but we didn't expect a whole lot more. It's what we expected from a basic power stick.

    Basic, does what it's supposed to do in most cases

    Posted .

    I use it mainly for my iPhone. This item charges the iPhone as quickly as it does if I plugged the iPhone into the Apple A/C adapter. If this battery is full, it can charge my iPhone from 20% to 100% without issue, but definitely only once before I have to recharge this battery given its moderate 2600mAh capacity. So for basic charging it works fine. Two big gripes I have though: 1) If I use this battery to charge something that doesn't require much current, like my Fitbit, it will turn off on its own within a minute because the Fitbit is not drawing enough current to keep this battery on. I suspect other devices that don't require very much current to charge will also run into this problem. Flip side though, this is proof that it does turn off automatically to save power. 2) There is no indication of how much battery life is left. Even if it had 2 or 3 extra LEDs to give a crude estimate would have been good. This battery doesn't tell you if it's running out juice until the LED turns red, which means you're just about to run out of juice. I won this in a raffle so I can't complain, but if I had to pay for it, I wouldn't pay more than $5-$8 for it. In a pinch though, this thing would work fine and is fairly compact to carry around. Would recommend if it were cheaper, like on sale or something.

    Really lifesaving little gadget

    |
    Posted .

    So I got this as a free gift from Best Buy but I can assure you that this review is honest and forthright as I don't do $12.99 bribes on my reviews! Anyways, a couple of days after getting this I had to go somewhere where I knew I'd be taking pictures but my stupid phone didn't charge as I hadn't plugged it into the wall all the way so my phone was starting the day at 8% of power. Thankfully I had already charged this up and it was ready to go so I put my phone in my pocket connected to this device and went about my business. A short while later I arrived and my phone (an iPhone Six Plus btw) was charged to 29%. I began taking pictures here and there and within a short time later (maybe two hours) my phone was up to 75% and I was done with my event. Without this little device I'd have been really out of luck for the day and been unable to take pictures. So I'd really recommend this as an emergency backup. Be aware you'll need your own little cord for an iPhone as it comes with a Google Android type charger though.

    Not A Waste of Money... Great Charger

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this charger to extend the battery range of my iPhone 6S when I'm using the Strava app on long bike rides. This requires the cellular to be on and it works the battery more than normal. I tested the charger out at home to see how well it works. The unit charges in the time frame promised. It charges my iPhone to 100% quicker than my wall plug. It charges quickly without getting too warm. I used it during the last half of an 8-hour bike ride after my (fully charged) phone showed low battery level after about 5 hrs. I plugged in the Insignia Portable Charger and left it connected till the ride was complete and the phone battery was at 100% at the end of three hours and 45 mins. I stopped buying "gadgets" a long time ago because they often don't deliver on their cost and convenience, but this little gem was (a little bit of) money well spent. I plan to go to SEMA in Vegas this year and I anticipate some long days. I'll certainly have the Insignia Portable Charger close at hand.

    Good for the price

    I would give it 5 stars except for one little glitch. When you initially charge the device, the blue light indicating a fully charged unit is a lie. The light went on after about two hours so I took it out. When I needed a charge it lasted only about 10 minutes. So, I plugged it in again and left it overnight to charge. After that it worked fine. I like the fact that it's very compact. I used it to charge my phone when it was about out of power when I was out all day taking photos and sightseeing during vacation. It came in very handy because I needed the Google maps GPS to find my way around.
