This product is very handy, and works as advertised. It will save a dying cell phone, and charge an iPad. I gave them as xmas gifts, and the recipients seemed pleased. It is simple to operate. It does seem to take longer than I expected to recharge, but that is all I can say that is negative. I was driving an older car on a trip and needed more outlets for charging the cell and the GPD. The battery would work with either, so I put the cell on it. Problem solved, and no wire tangle. I haven't had it long enough to see how durable it is, but I recommend it highly.

Charge the Cyclops one time and used it to charge my phone once so far. If it works as suggested it will be great for backpacking and international travel. Who does not worried about the phone going dead while in the back country or how to get a charge at an airport. Have you seen the people sitting against airport walls charging phones or other devices. This is the cure. Cyclops is rated to provide five full up charges to your iphone we will see but so far so good.

This works great, just like it's supposed to! I had to charge it overnight when it arrived, but have since charged my smartphone multiple times and this is still full charge! You don't even have to bring along the cord for your phone as the one that comes with this works for that.
That's a really good question! The plug in charger says this: "input 100-240V AC 50/60hz 0.18A max", I hope you can figure out the answer to your question from that info. Also, the charger connects to the device via a USB cord so I can charge the device from my laptop or a USB equipped car lighter adapter.

You charge this battery pack when you have power available. Then, when you are not near an outlet, say hiking or biking, you plug your favorite phone/whatever into this pack and it charges your device. They're great for charging your device in a backpack while you go about your day.
