Portable Device Charger

As you know, one of the products I'm giving away is The Portable Device Charger . I've had a couple of questions, so thought I'd do a review.

I've had mine about a month as I had the chance to get an early demo (rep perk). And I can tell you it's a life saver.

About the size of a pen
I have a Samsung Galaxy phone. And sometimes, something will be running that sucks my battery dry before I even know it. If possible, and if I had it, I would plug it in. But I'm not always somewhere I can do that and I don't always have a charger.

The charger itself if fairly small, so it can be slipped into a pocket, purse or bag. It comes with 5 adapters to cover most products on the market. While it does not come with a wall charger, it does use a USB end, so you can charge it on a computer. If you're like me though, you have one or two wall chargers that are USB compatible and so can leave it charging even when your computer is off.

Does it work? Yes. I've been able to fully charge my phone twice on a single charge. Every device is different so you may not have two, you might even have three (I've never tried or needed to try a third).

USB Plugs
So I have a Samsung you say and you  have an Apple product. Apple is a bit proprietary so I can understand your concern. I have an iPod touch and an Ipad (gen 1). At first, when I plugged it into either of them, I immediately got a message saying it could not charge this device. I was a bit down, but I don't like to give up. I grabbed my Apple USB cord and plugged one end into my iPad and one into the Avon Charger. And success!!! Same with the iPod. Then I wanted to take a picture of the failed charged but when I put the Avon charge cord with the adapter back on, it worked. I have no idea why, or how, but it worked and continues to work.  If this doesn't work for you, try your white Apple USB cord and plug it into the Avon charger....go ahead, try it.



I then thought, what the heck, I'm on a roll, what else? I have an older Sony Ereader. Yup, charges that. I have a Kobo Vox; charges that too (yes, I like to read).

So, out of 5 devices by 4 manufacturers, I was able to use the Avon Charger for all of them. I'm totally sold. If by chance, you don't have the same results, Avon does have a money back guarantee.
