              I picked this up when I was visiting New York, needed a way to charge my iPhone while on the go; and lucky me this had a slight charge straight from the factory. Fully charged, this will charge my phone from 0% battery to 100% about 1 1/2 times, at the same rate when it's plugged into an outlet. Definitely a handy little thing...the dongles are a little confusing at first but it all works, with a nice retractable cord. You can't charge your phone from the battery while charging the supplemental battery itself, or at least I don't recommend it. All in all, I love this little thingy! I was weary at first because it looks kinda cheap, but looks can be deceiving!

                  I use this product with an iPod iPhone and several Android devices. The performance is as advertised although I haven't actually verified the capacity. There are lots of battery packs and at least this one works good and shipped from USA, free.

                  Great for the camper/hiker/boater's cell phone when away from any 12V or 110 charging facilities.

                  A perfect emergency back-up battery for the cell phone.

                        I bought this power pack to carry in my gear bag. I mainly use it with an iPhone on days I have to heavily use the GPS (sometimes I work with the news networks), however, it's a hero's tool for charging a Producer's phone or what not while in the field.

                        Just know that the pack does NOT come with a cable for any Apple products - though the advertising would hint that it does. You are meant to supply that cable for use with the USB power output on the unit.

                        The charging time seems very fast. I have not tested the unit to see how much it can charge other items before needing a recharge for itself.

                        The flashlight is weak, but a decent bonus feature.

                        Controls on the unit are simple and straightforward.

                          Tekkeon states that this unit replaces their MP1860 unit. We had excellent experiences with the 1860. However, the replacement 1820 will only accept a draw of 1.2 amps max. The 8160 would accept a max draw of 2.1 amps.
                          As a result, we were forced to return the 1820's to B&H, since they were not an adequate replacement for the 1860's.
                          To be fair to Tekkeon, a careful reading of the 1820 specs and the old 1860 specs shows the difference.
