Button

Button:
"Worked well for awhile and then the power button failed rendering it useless..."
_
"after having this practically in storage for several months iv only used for for about 3 months, out of nowhere while charging im guessing the circuitry failed and the product caught fire around the button on the side and charging port, if i hadnt been sitting on at my computer my house could have burnt down!"
_
"One problem I've noted is that the power button sticks in the pushed in position."
_
"Another really cool thing (that I don't remember reading anywhere) that this device has, is a little button on the side (very easily missed as it is perfectly flush with the body) that activates a really nice, really bright, single LED flashlight!"
_
"The only thing I would fault it for is the power button, it turns on to easily in my bag."
_
"Worked well for awhile and then the power button failed rendering it useless..."
_
"The LED flashlight feature is a nice addition - turn it on off with two clicks of the button."
_
"This is the best external battery pack I've used yet, bar none.1) The lights are green, my favorite color2) The output auto-senses iDevices, so both Android phones and iDevices can charge effectively3) It has A LIGHT on it (double-tap the button)4) You don't need to turn it off an on, it turns on automagically when a device is plugged in and off when the device is charged or you unplug it5) The size and shape is ideal6) The capacity is outstanding (I can play Ingress on my Galaxy Nexus for five or six hours straight without issue)The only drawback I've seen is my four-year-old Android device doesn't seem to draw enough power to keep the pack on."

Cable

Cable:
"I like this generally, but dislike the proprietary cord to attach to the phone for charging."
_
"About 6 weeks ago it started acting flaky when I hooked the charge cable up to it."
_
"Only downside is the cable it comes with is a little cheap and broke after a few uses but I have tons of mini to USB cables."
_
"The only one negative aspect is the product comes with only 1 cable when you can connect up to 4 deviced to charge."
_
"The package arrived sealed, but on opening it we discovered the input charging cable was missing."
_
"I would strongly prefer a more easily replaceable cord."
_
"It does the job, but check out Anker Anker PowerLine Micro USB (3ft) - The World's Fastest, Most Durable Charging Cable, with Kevlar Fiber and 10000+ Bend Lifespan for Samsung, Nexus, LG, Motorola, Android Smartphones and More (white) Powerline cables for a more robust option."
_

Capacity

Capacity:
"Lots of capacity, enough to fully charge an iPad 3 from dead."
_
"when I first received it was amazing after a few weeks I started having issues with the input to recharge the backup battery, it seems like it's loose or not connecting, if I wiggle it just right it will start charging unfortunately it never charges back to its full capacity."
_
"I have noticed that as time has gone on that the total charge capacity has declined a bit, unfortunately, but I do use it a LOT and that is common for any well used battery."
_
"There's also a drawback to having a battery with this huge capacity charging through USB."
_
"I have used many battery backups in the past from other manufacturers, but normally stop using them due to damage they sustain during transport or just lack of capacity."
_
"My only complaint is that the 4 LEDs to see the battery capacity are hard to differentiate from any angle except straight at them, but in my opinion they look a lot better set up the way they are."
_
"Nice capacity on the 13000 mAh."
_
"They have a massive storage capacity and great value for money."
_
"As far as capacity is concerned this battery pack was good for about 4 to 5 charges."
_
"It's a lil big in size, but has great capacity."
_
"The Limefuel does not exhibit any shortcomings or questionable design decisions, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking at purchasing a high capacity portable battery."

Connector

Connector:
"I wouldn't recommend you purchase this until they do something about that terrible charge connector."
_
"Slowly but surely the input USB connector has failed."
_
"Bad quality port USB Micro B Jack, the port that charges the Battery Pack BROKE!"
_
"Make sure that this male port is inserted with the connectors facing the connectors in the female USB adaptor (turning it the wrong way will face the port's connectors with the plastic tab inside the female USB port)."
_
"Also noted that using original provided charging cable on my first charging attempt caused my wall connector to get so hot that it discolored the finish."

_
"I carry it in my jacket breast pocket.3) It's attractive and has a pleasantly smooth , yet grippy, surface that doesn't attract dirt, lint, pet hair, or fingerprints."

Design

Design:
"Although, I will say that my wife's iPhone 4S charged fairly fast using the provided limeade cord, so it's possible that the cord is designed for apple products which is very annoying and not what I would expect from a cord that has a dual function (30-pin and microUSB)."
_
"The 2.1a is optimized for Apple products, while the HTC one will still charge'I feel cheated because it was never clear on their product campaign the 2a output was designed for Apple products."
_
"I rarely used my Energizer model simply because it's large, glossy, slippery, and not well designed."
_
"I enjoy the great design of this charger, not to mention the ridiculous storage capacity, overall a good product."
_
"As a complete package, the L240X is an excellent portable battery that checks off all the boxes: Design, Performance, and Price."
_
"The Limefuel does not exhibit any shortcomings or questionable design decisions, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking at purchasing a high capacity portable battery."
_
"I love the understated elegance of the design of this unit; almost could be an apple product its so beautiful and minimal."

Level

Level:
"more info on this product: I love the fact that the charging port is a mirco usb plug( what this means is that if you can charge your phone with the cord it gave you then you can also charge the charger with the same cord,this is useful when your in your car and you want to charge your charger and your phone at the same time, you plug your car charger into the charger and then plug your charger into your phone)the led is meh tried to find a model without an led and more power but couldn't so i just went with this one, i dont really use the led its not like it comes in handy as much as they would have you believe but led lights are tiny so they had to use the space for something, i guess it was a good ideathe charge indicator is great it shows you 4 or 5 ( i cant remember) lights telling you how much charge you have left in the chargerlove the finish, its a flat black slightly textured finish that feels great and doesent absorb scratches or finger prints, it also gives some protection from bumps or dropsVERY well made i can tell just by the way it feels, its like they packed everything they needed to into a tiny package leaving nothing to wastetiny charger perfect for pockets and purses, backpackswould highly recommend this to students ,you can have your phone charging in your backpack and people will come up asking if they can charge their phone ( its happened to me)would NOT recommend this to those who travel a lot the low mAh levels means you will only get a few charges for your phone or mp3 or tablet ( maybe tablet) instead i would recommend something in the 15000+ range, some chargers can even charge laptops and tablets and still have juice for your mp3 camera and other devices, plus you got that big bag to put a bigger charger in like this > http: www."
_
"Only downside is it takes some time to charge fully back up (but it is s big battery so it is a bit expected) and the charging level display is sometimes hard to read to see if it is fully charged."
_
"The flashlight does not have a high brightness level, but is efficient for providing enough light to plug in devices."
_
"Would love it even more if it had a digital power level remaining indicator instead of four lights that count down available power level."
_
"The case is slick and the lighted LED's help to determine the level of charge in the portable charger."
_
"I contacted Limefuel and all I can say is WOW for the level of outstanding customer service that they demonstrate standing behind their product."
_
"I'm happy to say that I will be looking forward to other great products from a company that not only produces quality line of products, but also a company that stand behind and believe in their products so much that they are willing to follow through that believe with an exceptional and outstanding level of customer service and support."

Light

Light:
"I was looking forward to using the pack; however, from opening there seemed to be some serious flaws.1) The green indicator light depending on what angle you looked at it was either fully charged or empty.2) It took multiple attempts of plugging in and plugging out external lines for a charge to start.3) Pass-through charging would randomly stop and I'd have to start the whole plugging in and plugging out process again.4) No matter how long I charged the battery, the green indictor light remained unchanged.5) Probably the worst of all, it seems to have shorted out my iPhone's charger."
_
"Dead after 3 months of very very light use."
_
"Button for LED light and to check the battery percentage broke the first week of ownership."
_
"The first one lasted about months, and then after that failed to charge (would only charge up to 1 LED light)."
_
"But worse is that they are unclear, they are so bright that it is very hard to see how many of the 4 indicator lights are on because they share the same plastic frame."
_
"Plus the weight is not purse friendly Walmart has a light much smaller charger."
_
"However, this beautiful unit comes equipped with a very good built-in flash light."
_
"Great build quality, light weight, and very good capacity."
_
"The flashlight does not have a high brightness level, but is efficient for providing enough light to plug in devices."
_
"However occasionally you'll hit the button and turn it on in your bag and kill the battery and curse the light....*UPDATED INFO* Well as you can tell from above I love it... however it died on me..."
_
"Torch: I have used it once to test it only - gives a bright light and should be good to get you out of a building in the dark if needed."

Manufacturer

Manufacturer:
"I bought another variety of battery pack from a lesser manufacturer, and came dead on arrival."
_
"I am unhappy that the manufacturer did not honor the one year warranty that is stated on the product description, but Amazon did give me a partial refund on this product."
_
"I have used many battery backups in the past from other manufacturers, but normally stop using them due to damage they sustain during transport or just lack of capacity."
_
"Trying to open the plastic enclosure without destroying it was a wash for me, I ended up ripping the top tab because the enclosure is made of a hard plastic and when I tried to open the tab, it just broke but considering how far these units had to travel from the manufacturer, it works well for keeping the device protected."
_
"Also if your has water damage, make sure to contact the manufacturer - they are pretty good about replying back to your emails."
_
"I looked at many, many external batteries and even bought a few that simply didn't work as well as the manufacturer claimed."
_
"It's a perfect product if the manufacturer declare what kind of battery cell adopted."
_
"Trying to open the plastic enclosure without destroying it was a wash for me, I ended up ripping the top tab because the enclosure is made of a hard plastic and when I tried to open the tab, it just broke but considering how far these units had to travel from the manufacturer, it works well for keeping the device protected."
_
"Well, since phone manufacturers don' t seem to be able to provide us with better battery life I guess we have to bring the juice along."
_
"Also if your has water damage, make sure to contact the manufacturer - they are pretty good about replying back to your emails."

Noise

Noise:
"This noise has since become so annoying that I am returning the pack because it screeches so loud that everyone around me stares at me like I am blowing a dog whistle."
_
"Sometimes there is a scary hissing noise when I charge it but according to other reviews manufacturer that's fine normal."
_
"The only downside I can think of is that the battery pack sometimes makes humming noises and also it is hard to tell when it is fully charged."
_
"The device does indeed charge at 2A (I tested it against a wattmeter and a USB charger and saw it reach 12W at a steady pace, which is actually equivalent of ~2.4A @ 5V), but unfortunately the bundled cable is unable to handle that current (from my testing, it is only able to charge the Limeade at 8W or 1.6A).The only downside is the very audible hissing noise, which is probably from some very large capacitor inside the device."
_
"Overall a high capacity very portable battery is excellent but discharging audible high pitch noise is annoying unless you are in an environment which can drown out the noise."
_
"My only annoyances are the humming hissing noise it makes when charging (easily ignorable), the LED lights are too close together to easily tell the battery's remaining capacity, and the included cable seems kind of cheap (again, easily ignorable...that's not what I bought it for) but it works fine for charging."
_
"I had a noise coming out of my first unit, but these fine folks sent me another which has no noise at all and works great."
_
"My package didn't have any water damage as others have described, nor do i hear any noises as its charging."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Make sure that this male port is inserted with the connectors facing the connectors in the female USB adaptor (turning it the wrong way will face the port's connectors with the plastic tab inside the female USB port)."
_
"Trying to open the plastic enclosure without destroying it was a wash for me, I ended up ripping the top tab because the enclosure is made of a hard plastic and when I tried to open the tab, it just broke but considering how far these units had to travel from the manufacturer, it works well for keeping the device protected."
_
"It was encased in a plastic box, so it seemed easy to remove, I was wrong."
_
"When I got my in the mail due to certain mishaps from USPS, the plastic packaging sustained moderate damage from what looked like if being pressed or run over or something."
_
"The interior of the plastic and paper package was water damaged and visibly moist."
_
"The LED charge indicators on the front of the device are plenty bright, and the casing is covered in a soft-touch plastic finish that feels great and seems to hold up quite well."
_
"At my doorstep:Firstly, I noticed the packaging was very nice and the unit seemed to arrive without any visual damage and the hard plastic packaging enclosing the unit was nice as well and housed pretty good, my only gripe was the saran plastic wrap around the top and the bottom of the enclosure which I'm sure serves a functional purpose ( I imagine to help keep moisture out of the packaging during shipment ) but looked a bit tacky is all."
_
"The exterior is rubberized and makes it easy to hold - much better than a smooth plastic case."
_
"It was packaged really well in a plastic case."

Plug

Plug:
"After using both battery packs, I want the LimeAde back... the Legion battery is too wide and too long (although thinner), but the worst part is that when you plug in a phone or other device it doesn't automatically start charging."
_
"I was a little skeptical in buying this especially with all of the problems of getting the right cable and plug for my iPhone 5."
_
"This is outrageously important as it means now I only have to pack one actual plug (either one of my iPhone USB wall-plugs or my MacBook charger) when I go on trips, since it doesn't require its own cable & plug.+ Matte finish, not glossy (I love my Anker but it looks like it's been attacked by feral cats)+ Recharges pretty quickly - it'll take a few hours to fill it all the way, but considering how much juice it stores that's perfectly understandable+ Built-in flashlight could come in handy in a pinch, although I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet+ Limeade seems like a really good company, as reflected both organizationally and in the steps they take to do right by their customers - I got mine as a Kickstarter backer, and they actually had the battery pack in my hands within a matter of weeks of the Kickstarter concluding; I've never had a KS product get turned around that quickly."
_
"some dont have acesssory plug access .I can charge my phone in my gps with no problems at alll .thanks for a great product."
_
"AccessoriesThe Limefuel Blast L156X Pro comes with a two-in-one cable that plugs into an USB power adapter as well as into an iPhone 5, 5S, 5C, 6 or 6+ on one end and the Limefuel Blast on the other end."
_
"The flashlight does not have a high brightness level, but is efficient for providing enough light to plug in devices."
_

Size

Size:
"It's small and lightweight, though I don't think it would be comfortable in one's pants pocket."
_
"- Wouldn't say comfortable, but it's OK.- This battery pack weighs same as a normal size tablet."

"My research led me to these 4 great products:Jackery Giant 10400mAh (Orange) Premium Portable High Capacity Dual-Port External Battery Power Bank Backup Charger with 3A Output for iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, 4, iPad Air, 4, 3, 2, iPad Mini, iPod (Apple Cable Required) Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, S2, Note 2, ...why I didn't buy: Limeade beats the capacity for the price, and the Giant has a fatter form factor I didn't like as muchAnker Astro2 8400mAh Portable Dual-Port External Battery Pack Power Bank Backup Charger with Built-In Flashlight for Smart phones, Android phones, PSP, GoPro, iPad mini, iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, 4 (Apple adapters not inclued), Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, S2, G...why I didn't buy: Perfect size, shape, and performance!"

_
"The only downside is the size and weight."

"The fact you can charge 2 things at once is a nice feature, although my only drawback is an obvious one... having such a high charge in such a small package makes it a little heavy, it's not light due to the size of the battery and the capacitance."

"Fast forward to this week and the unit is dead."
_
"My old one, from a different company, was not able to actually charge the Tab S tablet, only to slow down the discharge."

Support

Support:
"I contacted Limefuel support, and they diagnosed it as a fault in the output ports - but by this time, my warranty was expired."
_
"I had a problem with my battery and emailed support."
_
"I appreciate that the company is new and growing, but when you get to a website, no support links and the twitter handle is no good."
_
"Pros- It's very sturdy and the rubber feels good in your hands- Huge charge capacity- 2 USB inputs (one 1.0A and one 2.1A)- Built in LED flashlight- Battery capacity indicator (although it's not always clear)- Customer support is amazingly responsive and informativeCons- A bit heavier than others (but a larger capacity)- Battery capacity indicator not the easiest to read- No pass-thru charge- Packaging is hard to open, at least it's not a sealed clamshell"
_
"No company can make a perfect product, but how they back their product and customer support makes up for any issues encountered."
_
"Limefuel also was very good at customer support."
_
"I'm happy to say that I will be looking forward to other great products from a company that not only produces quality line of products, but also a company that stand behind and believe in their products so much that they are willing to follow through that believe with an exceptional and outstanding level of customer service and support."
_
"This limefuel battery perfectly fits the bill since it supports pass-through charging (AKA passive charging)."
_
"I have to say, I am very happy that I was able to support the kickstarter campaign for LimeAde."

"Only downside is the cable it comes with is a little cheap and broke after a few uses but I have tons of mini to USB cables."
_
"This battery pack was very flimsy around the USB port area and I returned it for that reason."
_
"The biggest drawback is the weak USB cord that comes with the unit."
_
"Make sure that this male port is inserted with the connectors facing the connectors in the female USB adaptor (turning it the wrong way will face the port's connectors with the plastic tab inside the female USB port)."
_
"It does the job, but check out Anker Anker PowerLine Micro USB (3ft) - The World's Fastest, Most Durable Charging Cable, with Kevlar Fiber and 10000+ Bend Lifespan for Samsung, Nexus, LG, Motorola, Android Smartphones and More (white) Powerline cables for a more robust option."

Value:
"However, if cheap is the word, it's hard to beat the 13000mAh for value."
_
"I'll freely admit that the widget may be reporting the wrong values, but the delta between the AC wall charger and the battery pack using the same cable and allegedly same rated output seems to indicate that the unit is not up to spec."
_
"They have a massive storage capacity and great value for money."
_
"amazing product granteed babe value"
_
"It's a bit heavy but reasonable for it's charge value."
_
"Had this over a year now, use it a lot...still ticking, although it's lost some life, i notice it's probably about at 85% of capacity when it was new...that's to be expected as battery lose life over time...over all, great value..."

"Excellent value considering it comes with a Apple compliant 2-in-1 cable that works very well."

Warranty

Warranty:
"I contacted Limefuel support, and they diagnosed it as a fault in the output ports - but by this time, my warranty was expired."
_
"But the problem is that basically they told me that my warranty had expired (1 year) and that they were not going to do anything else with me."
_
"Gave me absolutely no BS about warranty, didn't require me to ship in my broken unit to get a replacement, and generally gave me a very pleasant experience I wouldn't necessarily have expected for such an affordable device."
_
"Two duds out of two, both dead a few weeks out of the 30-day warranty."
_
"The only problem is that the website has not contact information for warranty issues."

"I was using it to charge my phone and ipad while at class every week and was disappointed in the rate that it charged my devices...it seemed like they were still draining of power while plugged in."
_
"However, the batter itself doesn't seem to be able to charge the iPad Air."
_
"Update from three stars to one star:after continued use it's become frustrating to not have this battery pack charge an iPad at full 2.1A."
_
"Charges my ipad fully from dead."

iPhone

iPhone:
"It charges my iPhone 5S to full from dead to full every night while offshore."
_
"The L240X is the largest variant of Limefuel's Blast batteries and offers an mAh rating that is capable of charging an iPhone 6 12-13 times from dead to 100%, and about 7-8 times for an iPhone 6 Plus."
_
"I was looking forward to using the pack; however, from opening there seemed to be some serious flaws.1) The green indicator light depending on what angle you looked at it was either fully charged or empty.2) It took multiple attempts of plugging in and plugging out external lines for a charge to start.3) Pass-through charging would randomly stop and I'd have to start the whole plugging in and plugging out process again.4) No matter how long I charged the battery, the green indictor light remained unchanged.5) Probably the worst of all, it seems to have shorted out my iPhone's charger."
_
"When I try and use the cable which comes with the product with my iPhone 5s i get an error warning on my phone that says the cable is not certified and may not work with the phone."
_
"2 amp output Can charge and iphone from dead to 100% about 8 times."
