So keen is the company to appeal to gadget fans, they are even promising two free tips a year for the life of the Energi To Go product to ensure that as consumers purchase new devices they will have the right tips to charge them. In use and the battery gadget gets to work charging your gadgets for you. All you have to do it plug them into the main element and away you go. To give you an idea of charge there is a basic blue LED bar system that lights up accordingly.
It doesn't tell you how much charge you've got or how much longer it will take to charge your device, just that the unit has charge. The unit isn't without catches however. Without a power socket in the box you will have to charge the battery via USB and charging on the go is rather cumbersome, as you've got a battery dangling from your phone.
It's basic in its offering, but then it is just a battery. Where the Energizer Energi To Go range succeeds is that it's not just restricted to one gadget. Learn more Home Gadgets Gadget reviews. Why you can trust Pocket-lint.
The manufacturer also says the SpareOne can be geolocated in case of an emergency, even without a SIM card. Incoming and outgoing call clarity was just fine for a phone that feels as light as this does. Powered by a single AA battery, the SpareOne makes a great emergency kit phone. I bought both phones for the two different GSM areas of the world in Nov, A week later I took the correct phone to Central America where I was for two weeks. After purchasing a SIM card there, I installed and attempted to turn the phone on.
It would not power up after may tries. Later I saw that it did power up. I tried to turn it off and it would not turn off, at least not for a while. I returned home understanding that the phone could not be relied upon and contacted the company.
They told me I only had 30 days to return the phone, which of course is absurd as you will never buy a phone, plan a trip, take it away and return it from an international trip in 30 days when it doesnt work. So Im stuck with a phone that doesnt work, and can only expect the same from the other phone.
I would not recommend purchasing these phones for any reason, the least of which is the company makes sure you cant return it within their absurdly short return policy. Nice move. The last being this with report being if i remember correctly The idea looks good, but the few reviews did not give confidence. Thank You Regards Barbara Jones.
