Looks and feels high quality but didn't work
on 24 May 2012
I have sadly had to return my TeckNet battery pack as it was faulty. My overall impressions when I received it were good - it looked and felt high quality and had plenty of connectors and attachments. I plugged it in and charged it up and after 5 hours or so it reported as fully charged so I tried it out. Firstly on an HTC Wildfire S phone. I plugged the phone in and it immediately registered as charging from the battery pack, even though I hadn't switched it on. I left it charging for a few minutes, but noticed that the charge reading on my phone went _down_ during this time. It made no difference if I switched the pack on and off - the phone registered as charging - as did my MP3 player and Kobo that I also tried out. After 10 minutes or so the pack would no longer switch on. I connected it to charge and it showed as being completely empty! So, it's gone back and, having read the reviews more carefully there seem to be just too many faulty units around. I've therefore ordered a different make as a replacement: it doesn't look as nice as this one, but hopefully it will work. Two stars rather than one because clearly it works for most people and it looks the business. When the reliability improves, I'll probably buy one.
