Huge Waste of Money
I bought this product awhile back, and gave one to my sister. Mine hasn't worked well from the start. It did charge my phone the first time, but just barely. Since then, sometimes I will get a full charge out of it, sometimes not. My sister just used hers for the first time this week, and after 4 hours she discovered it hadn't even charged her phone at all. So when they say it holds a charge for 12 months, that's definitely not true. I'm very disappointed that I wasted my hard-earned money on this horrible product. Unfortunately I don't have the receipt, or I would have returned them. I will never buy another Halo product again, and I will never recommend Halo to anyone. If we could give negative ratings here, I would definitely do so.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Save your money!!
This product worked the first time I used it, but will not do a thing now - and I gave one away as a gift - I'm really embarrassed that I did that now knowing this Halo was a waste of money! Shopping Channel should also take note of all these reviews and accept returns on this product even though it is over the 30 days! Horrible customer service on a horrible product!

It is hard to rate this product. I ordered the set and put them away for gifts. I decided to use one myself and when I opened the pkg. the leads were missing. I opened the other box and they were included. This happened past the 30 day return but I thought they would replace the product. I sent the one back and received quite an impolite letter telling me it was past the 30 days, there would be no replacement, and if I wanted the defective one back it would cost me 15.00 and after 30 days if I hadn't let them know it was being discarded. I called the company and of course there was nothing they could do but he said they would return it at no charge. I will just have to use the one charger lead for both so now I can't give one away. So my advise is to check that all parts are there and that it seems nothing is under warranty for missing parts.

Like the others, I was also excited with this product. I gave the other one to my husband and he uses it even though he hates the color I chose (I got the pink). I followed the instruction and charged the unit for hours. The light never turns blue. The red light just shuts off. I manage to charge my HTC phone for maybe three hours the most. I would need to re charge the unit after. It doesn't hold much charge so it's only good on emergencies.

Not sure now
I order four of these for birthday gift in February now I'm a little worried because of the mixed reviews and the fact that it is too late to return them. I guess I will have to wait and see.

I really like this product, but found it only works with the cords that come with your electronics. The cord that comes with it is only good for recharging the Halo itself, but I recommend this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sent back :(
from Gulf Islands, BC
Charged my Samsung Galaxy phone GREAT when connected to the Halo AND my computer. When attempted to charge my phone independently to the Halo, it would not even show that it was connected! Very disappointed. Like someone else said, instructions leave A LOT to be desired. So sad to send back b/c the pink was so pretty! With this many poor feedbacks, Halo should take note and make improvements.....
Handy during power failure!
During the ice storm of 2013, December I used the halos I purchased last year...not as fancy as this set with the flashlight. Since I found the Halo to be such a life saver during the power failure I decided to purchase the latest offer from TSC . I haven't used it yet, but I planned to give away the second one as a gift to a friend who had no contact with the outside world once her cell phone died! I know she will appreciate it! I did have problems with the chargers the first time I ordered. I am hoping with this model there are no issues...I haven't had a chance to check it out. These little gizmos are very handy on trips, cottages and hospitals when short on outlets to plug in. Great idea.
product is doing what it says it will do
I fully charged these upon receipt as per the instructions. I was able to fully charge my Samsung phone when needed. I haven't yet neededto charge my Samsung tablet from the halo, but sofar, the product is doing what it says it will do and is a powerful flashlight too!!
