Pros: Fast recharge of phone, compact, handy microUSB/iPhone cable
This is now an essential item for travel and away from an office! Im really pleased with the speed at which it recharges a phone, similar to a high-powered wall charger. It nearly completely recharged my BlackBerry Torch 9810 in only about an hour from 10 to 90. This is a really useful device for heavy phone usage away from power, and is small enough to fit in your pocket with a phone. The attached micro-USB to iPhone cable end adapter on the retractable USB cable is really handy and ingenious.
Slight con: the Charging Vault itself seems to take a few hours to recharge fully itself, but its capacity is high enough that you could wait for an overnight charge. The 2nd USB power output is useful, and the 1.5A output capacity at 5V is adequate to recharge 2 power-hungry phones in parallel. I like that its rated for universal AC input 100-240V so you can use it worldwide with only a socket adapter.

Pros: Works well anywhere
Cons: A little heavy to carry in purse
This is a great product to use when your battery is dying and you dont have access to an electrical outlet to charge the battery. This can charge in your purse or pocket while you are on the train or at work. It is well worth the money
Seems Just Fine So Far

Pros: Lightwieght and compact
This Web site deleted my punctuation marks and symbols, so I am submitting my review again to make it clear.
The kit seems to be able to do exactly what it is supposed to do. The only thing I noticed is that it takes about 75 percent of the charge to charge 50 percent of the battery in my Torch 9860. As large as the charging vault kit is, I was expecting it to have more capacity. Maybe it will increase with use.
