Power just not long enough

,
September 8, 2014
By Quilter
from Milliken, CO
"I was very hopeful. I wanted power to operate lights, i pad and laptop for my exhibit booth at quilting shows. Unfortunately, in my home trials, it only provided power for 6 hours with one light plugged in. I need 10 - 12 hours of power. So I had to return it. So, if your power needs are within 6 hours at a time, I would say get it."

Very poor radio reception

,
August 20, 2014
By Oley
from Rugby, ND
"Although I haven't used the power pack yet, the radio's reception is terrible. If a signal is found, it doesn't seem to stay locked in. It should have an external antenna, in my opinion. Where I live, the radio is useless."

power pack review

"Bought this product for my son to keep in his truck for emergencies. He has used all components of this product except the cell phone charger, and he loves it. I highly recommend this power pack to anyone who wants the security of having a backup system just in case."

Ran my lights at the flea market

"“I recently tried out my new Powertunes by bringing it to an indoor flea market. Electricity wasn't readily available and the show actually charged $30 for it on top of the space. My Powertunes powered my lights all day long. I had other dealers coming up to me and asking how I had power. I happily showed them the Powertunes. They were impressed and told me they were going to buy one. With the radio and aux port for the iPod, that's just a bonus. This is one cool tool and it will be coming with me at all my flea markets from now on!”"

A quilter's dream come true!

,
December 8, 2013
By Sewgranny
from Burnsville, Mn
"We lose our electricity a lot, and I have to sew every day to keep up. This is a dream come true. I don't like using a 100 foot drop cord to the generator, this is wonderful. Plus, I get to listen to my favorite songs on my Ipod. I am going to tell all my friends that sew and quilt, they have to get one of these. We do outdoor craft shows, and now I can take my sewing machine with me, We can't wait to take this to picnics. I know I will have to fight my husband for possession of this, he has already been eyeing it, in fact he had to use it to jump start the neighbors car. I wish they came in more than one color, then we could each have own. (red would be nice). It would be nice if it had wheels.
Great product!
