Not fit for purpose
on 10 January 2013
I did not purchase this product via Amazon, but wish to alert others to it's shortcomings before they think about buying one.
Nice idea, compact and looks great. However it utterly failed to charge either my Samsung Galaxy S2 or my Blackberry, whether switched on or off. Indeed both phones when switched on registered a "the connected device is unable to charge your phone" message.
On closer inspection the output from these devices is extremely low and so is unlikely to be powerful enough to charge a power-hungry phone when it's switched on - which is when they are most likely to be needed!
Other products are of course available, but a carrying spare phone battery may be a better solution!
