@jonjen2@narfcake@sammydog01 Now that I find myself in need of chargers for the kids - I would jump all over that 4 pack deal if it was still ar Morningsave. The chargers really don’t matter to me, but the 4 9000 ones would have been perfect
How is a charger worth 3 power banks? Am missing something??? The power banks are good. (Got the 4 pack from morningsave.com) for 2 bux less. Alibet the charger. But seriously; the charger ain’t worth the difference of 3 power banks.
@Jonas4321 This depends upon whether or not the circuit inside the charger is split vs. shared. But since I’ve yet to see a product (especially wall/portable battery chargers of any sort) list the charging amperage as anything less than the maximum available–no matter how many ports–this is almost certainly 2.4A (or, if you’re charging two devices, 1.2A per device).
TL;DR If this is actually a 4.8A charger in disguise, I’ll eat my hat. In fact, I’m so fully-engorged with confidence that this is 2.4A shared circuit that I’ll just come clean right now and admit that I don’t even have a hat, which means if I’m wrong I’d have to go buy one and then eat it.
It would be a cheap one though because I am very poor.
@RedOak she knows shes a moron…and so is her video gaming boyfriend…not only do they have one 11 month old…they have just announced she is pregnant…again. All this with her not working, them breaking up and him living with grandma making 300 a week…and yes, I adore all of them…but they’re morons
So I live Wilmington North Carolina which just had hurricane Florence come through. During the eight days I was without power which was seven more days than the mayor of Wilmington was without power Democrat bill saffo. I started to appreciate all the things I had bought from the old woot and meh.com. like that Halo Lantern 3 pack and the fire alarm CO2 sensor motion sensor night light thingamajiggy that they had a while back pocket knives that I bought the Bluetooth speaker the d o r c y flashlights etc… Then my son brought out a Duracell power bank that i also got from here and that bad boy kept us going for a a while but I realized I did not have a power bank myself so thanks for offering a power bank today and thanks for all the stuff you’ve offered over the years that I’ve said ti myself “well maybe when the power goes out or when we have another hurricane it’ll get used” cuz all those things and many more that I can’t remember right now I’ve gotten used during my eight days without power 11 days without central air and 14 days without cable. You will not be surprised that Spectrum our cable company sent a bill for a full months worth of service yesterday.
@dino2269 Not surprised about Spectrum… Sorry for all that you experienced. I have a friend that lives in Wilmington as well. He tested his generator and thought he was good to go, only to have it shut down almost immediately. I went thru Harvey. We were blessed to be on west side of storm, but were stiff affected. I know things are not all up and running yet, but happy there is some power restored. Any phone bank is awesome in a disaster. I bought a combo car charger, compressor and it has usb ports, so can also charge phones. Not sure how many phone banks I actually have…lol I have a box in my closet.
@dino2269 I live just north of you in Jacksonville and had pretty much all the same issues except Spectrum was out for 20 days in my neck of the woods and power was out for 12 days but it could always be worse, we could be living in the new Bern or Pollocksville area. My dad lives about a mile for me on the new river in Jacksonville and got about 2 foot of water in his house and my best friend lives in marsh sound ( behind Bradley Creek ) and had about 2 foot of water in this first floor so I definitely consider myself lucky and I to have pulled out all of my stuff that I bought in recent years from meh and woot and put it to work for me (Especially the solar power generator from woot in able me to watch over the air TV for a few hours each day). Anyway hope your recovery goes well, I will be down in Wilmington probably tomorrow helping some friends out with their mess.
@bigtom67@dino2269 I drove through Pollocksville just today. Amazing to see the huge piles of furniture, insulation, drywall, 2X4’s, electronics, and other belongings pulled out and heaped at the curb to be picked up and taken to the landfill. Some houses it looked like virtually everything they owned got ruined. And all the multiple businesses that had their display cases and other furnishings ruined, just sitting out at the curb awaiting the scrap heap. Sure, seeing a news story about how ‘cleanup will take months’ is one thing, but seeing the sheer, absolute amount of stuff people were forced to remove from their houses really brings it home on a more personal level. I even had a guy in the gas station parking lot in Emerald Isle offer to hire all five of my crew for demo work, because they’re so swamped. It’s just amazing how much STUFF we all have, and how quickly it can all become stuff we USED to have.
Finally had a need to use this sneaker and it did not work! It will hold a charge but just won’t give that juice to any device. I smashed the hell out of it and threw it away.
I am sure too much time has passed to try to get a refund. For the future any Meh items you purchase, try them out right away, fully.
My 9000 worked for a while, but now that we are passed the 90 days, there is no longer any power on the ports. It does detect a cable being plugged in, but won’t charge or run a USB device.
