These guys just won't charge it. I'm told it's related to how much throughput power you need. I plugged it into my kindle fire and nothing happens, no indicator of the device charging.
Anyway to increase an existing order ? I'd like another set, but don't want to pay another $5 shipping.

I want them, but I'm not super interested in having more crap plugged into my computer...I'd like to plug them in and leave them on my nightstand next to my phone so I can grab and go in the morning.
I bought these the last time they were on woot and I can verify that they do in fact charge from a wall charger. It doesn't include one though, and the only usb cable it comes with is a 3" m/m micro usb. It has a micro- to mini- converter, but if you plan on charging from a wall charger you should probably get a longer cable.
In for ONE!
Well, two I guess---since they are doing a "two for Wednesday "
The wife will thank me...she always has a low-battery phone...plus, the many other devices we have laying around we might use em on.
At $10 delivered each----can't go wrong!
Have a woot day!
Just ordered, I bought them for my Kindle fire. Should work fine...right?
This would've come in handy yesterday. We were out in NYC and with all the finder and navigation apps I had running, my died about an hour before I expected.
Great idea. Bad execution?
The cords broke on me and when I charged my phone via one of these it burned up the cell so now the phone battery doesn't last a full day.
I like the idea, but for those reasons I don't really recommend this product.
will this charge my zune?
I had the Energizer Xpals for about 4 years now and they work great. I would assume this is similar. I love my Xpals.

Just email email@example.com
They should be able to adjust your order for you.
does anyone know if this will charge a nook color?
I phone battery is 1420mAh
and this is 1800mAh
So it will completely charge the Iphone and have a bit left over.
Friend of mine showed me a similar product they got from Verizon. It cost them around $40. So this is one deal. In for 2

I bought a recharger and spare battery for my phone that is always plugged into the wall outlet in case I either forget to charge my phone or as a backup. Why carry an over sized paperweight like this Duracell when your regular small fully charged battery will work just as well?
They work with my Zune HD perfectly.
LEM- wrote:This question was discussed on sellout.woot at the prior sale (when I bought mine, by the way). The conclusion that was more or less agreed upon (after some math was involved) that it will not effectively CHARGE an iPad, but it will trickle-charge it to some degree if it's turned off, or it will keep it running a bit longer if it's on and being used (that is battery level won't go up, but it will be draining slower while the pack is connected).
The reason, however, is now what is claimed above, but simple fact that iPad requires more current than this battery can provide for fully functional charge, but it does provide some relief to an iPad user on the go.
Exactly...the current is not enough to charge an iPad while being used, but if it is asleep, it will charge, just VERY slowly. In use, I expect this will act much like a PC's USB port, and slow down the discharging of the iPad's battery to almost nothing.
I'm shocked at the number of people here who appatrently don't own a car charger for their phone.
These are good hurricane supples though.
How far will this extend the range of my Chevy Volt?
So I bought one of these as I read on Amazon it can charge a Nintendo DSi. A Nintendo 3DS has the same connector and power charger so I should have no issues using this with a 3DS right? Anyone have experience charging a game system like a DSi/3DS with this thing? Can it be played and charged at the same time? (I'm guessing yes to all questions but figured I would ask).

Also wondering this.
Using mine right now.
They're an awesome way to store energy.

redlyn wrote:Also wondering this.
It should, but it will be slow @500mAh and it won't be able to charge the battery fully since it only holds 1800. I believe the Nook color battery is 4000mAh.

and this is 1800mAh

Actually, that will only be true if the phone is off, otherwise it will be a good deal less depending upon what you are doing on your iPhone. Since there is also a drain on the battery at the same time as it's charging the battery will not give a one to one ratio of mAh
Well, since the volt has a 16 kWh (16,000 Wh) battery and these are 3600 mAh together (about 4.3 Wh) So, maybe .009 miles, lol.
I'm in for 4. I have a number of friends who need one of these, and I could use one myself.
However, the REAL excitement is that with a two pack and two micro USB cables, you can use your charger to charge your charger while it charges your charger, giving free energy to the worlds smartphones FORVEVER!!!!!
I'm still not convinced I'm not experiencing a Groundhog Day moment. It is Wednesday, isn't it? Yet I see 2 smoke detectors, 2 car seats, and two Duracell charges.
This Duracell device will only charge certain things and does not last very long. For the price and capability to charge all kinds of stuff, (Kindle Fire, Android, iPad, iPod, Blackberry, Sony, Samsung, Nokia, Panasonic, and more), MyBlueBoost is the way to go. I have one and LOVE it! You can get it with a multi cable for about the same price and it is a much better product. Just saying...
1800mAH ranges from 1 to 2X the capacity of the average smart phone battery, so "up to 100 hours" doesn't apply to those greedy buggers. Probably would to MP3 players, etc. Still the price is great since the included cables would cost almost as much.
chikesmom wrote:Just ordered, I bought them for my Kindle fire. Should work fine...right?
Not so much. Those tablets have much larger batteries and some of them (like iPads) draw far greater current than batteries like these can deliver. Don't know about the Fire specifically but wouldn't be optimistic.

I scanned all 5 pages of posts, and did not notice anybody addressing the concern about those “myGrid Pad” rare earth magnets doing nasty things to other electronics, etc… that are in close proximity in your laptop bag. Aren’t strong magnets around sensitive electronics, watches, etc… a bad thing?
Should we be concerned?
What's the temperature tolerance on these? I don't want to leave it in my car and have it explode during summertime.

Flash drives and electronics in general are immune to the effects of most non-industrial magnets. Only magnetic media (non-flash media) like floppies and spinning hard drives are affected.
However, the internal compass, GPS, and 3G communications can get interference from magnets but as far as I know, this does not cause permanent damage.... move the magnet away and they work again.
Google "Magnetic case iphone damage" and you will see many discussions about this topic.
Hope this helps.
iGo (at Radio Shack) is a system of chargers and interchangable tips. One of them is a USB cable to iGo tip, so you can charge almost anything from your computer USB port. I see no reason that would not work with this battery's USB port as well, so you should not be limited to micro-USB devices. (Just speculating here, but it seems likely.)
