- Product Review (submitted on June 7, 2012):
I purchased two of these to take on an extended kayak camping trip to a remote island.
One pack performed flawlessly: I did not have problems that some people have reported. My pack stayed charged up (even sitting idle for a month following the trip) and was able to recharge my iPhone multiple times. I was able to recharge the pack using a folding solar panel array.
The other pack was damaged when a dry bag seam failed and the battery pack was submerged for a significant amount of time. Sad, but to be expected.
The advert describes the devices that this pack can charge- but it is not an all inclusive list. My superzoom camera came with a USB->? cable which handles both data transfer and recharges the camera's battery. The USB end of my camera's cable plugged into this battery pack and charged my camera battery from the 2A port. (Not sure if I will ever use the 1A port).
Very satisfied with the performance so far (although this is obviously not a long-term assessment). Bummed I lost the purchase price of the 2nd- but that was no fault of Satechi.
