The Mophie Juice Pack Helium is a nicely-designed, slim unit in perfect condition. The battery charges from a USB power source (no charger is included) with an enclosed Micro USB cable, not an Apple Lightning cable. If you travel with a Mophie-equipped iPhone and an iPad, you'll need to carry two cables. There are no instructions included; go to Mophie.com for a pdf user manual. One IMPORTANT STEP is left out of the instructions: After installation of the Juice Pack, your iPhone MUST BE RESTARTED (hold down the top Power button followed by the round Home button until the Apple logo appears) to enable the iPhone to recognize the Juice Pack. Perhaps the biggest issues are that the Mophie Juice covers the iPhone speakers and re-directs the sound to the front so if the phone is in your pocket, you may not hear any incoming calls or notifications. The included USB cable will not sync your device to another computer although it will charge the phone. And lastly, the USB connection is so tight that pulling on the cable to unplug it often pulls the entire Mophie end piece off the case. On the plus side, it re-charges the iPhone very nicely. To sum it up, I'll keep my Mophie Juice Pack but put it in the phone and use it just for travel, not everyday use.
This is a whole new world of toys for older kids with these remote controlled drones. The Iron Man insignia seems to get all the neighborhood kids revved up! They love Marvel Avengers! Nice that this one has a USB connector to power up. A great price on sale, recommend it for fun outside!
I like the computer, but unfortunately the battery is nearly dead. I'm not happy with that. I have been receiving warnings that the battery is near the end of it's life. I thought they were faulty but recently pulled the power cord and the battery lasted about 15 minutes. Otherwise, I really like the thing. Keyboard has a great feel. Plenty of ports. I like the HDMI port. My vostro 1700 had 7 USB ports and this one only has like four, but I fixed that with an multi-port external USB adapter. I have to give it 3 stars because of the battery issue.
This docking station works wonders. I'm a software developer and designer by trade, so I have tons of wires at my workstation that I have to hook up into my laptop everytime I sit down to work. What this station allowed me to do was plug everything into it, and reduce the cables I need to plug into my laptop down to ONE! Not only that, It added an extra DVI port and an HDMI port for me to finally get my dual external monitors going with my laptop, along with my Wacom Cintiq Hybrid Display (yes, thats 4 displays when all is said and done). Another great thing about this is that I would always just use a wireless connection with my laptop instead of fighting with the ethernet cable. Now I just plug the cable into the docking station, and viola! Whenever I want a more secure, faster connection, it's right there, one usb cable away! Don't know how I worked without one for so long! Love it!
