Recharge with a Portable iPhone, Micro-USB and Android Cell Phone Charger
Do I need to charge this up before 1st use? I plugged it in to my phone, and it took it from 13% (which is when it usually dies) up to only 20%. Not much of a boost!

Good, useful product.
Inadequate instructions and poor diagram for explaining the switch. The only way you can read the direction of the switch in in the sunlight. A good thing we can go on the internet to find out how to use the switch from another persons review.

watch out for the little switch
I bought one of these for christmas present. opened it up and was trying to flick the tiny switch to charge it and it broke off. apparently it was already in the charge position.
Very flimsly little switch so be careful.
Othewise a nice product probably. Hoping they will replace it under some kind of waranty if not oh well.
Still a great little gizmo or will be.

Needs an I-Phone 5 adapter
Picked this up today and did not pay attention to the lack of an I-phone 5 size plug. Oh we'll my wife or daughter now have a backup.

no where on the package or the product does it tell you which way is "in/off" "out/on' and yet you have to switch it to charge or use.
does in mean towards the inside of the devise or inwards toward the computer or towards the usb?
its a guessing game. so I will "charge" with my best guess and see if it works. darn I have just seen the smallest gray letters next to the switch. micro size and gray! on black plastic. and guess what, a best guess is wrong. out is towards the inside of the devise. Wow. hope it works.

Good for a little boost
I'm a sports fan and a concert goer, so having this little guy is good for the ride home when your battery is at 3% because you've been taking pictures and texting the whole time. Even though it doesn't give too terribly much of a boost, it still helps a bit when you need it. Though I wish someone would figure out how to stop battery discharge already! xD I'd recommend it. Not the best, but not the worst either.
