4.0 out of 5 stars Great battery, but if you're charging an iPad go for 14000mah+, June 16 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great battery, does what it says it does. Charged an iPad 4 from 1% to 70% in 7 hours. I think this is reasonable given the iPad takes quite a while to charge in general, even when plugged to the wall. If I was on a plane, I would theoretically have been able to use the iPad for at least those 7 hours, after using it for roughly 9 hours, which is what apple claims the battery life of the iPad is (from 100% to zero). That's a total of 16 hrs, which is an average amount of time someone stays awake during a whole day, so that'd be enough for me.

However, for $20 more you can get a 14400 one, that would probably get the iPad from zero to full, so I'd consider that if that's what you're planning on charging

2.0 out of 5 stars Great game, but beware of one major problem, May 29 2012
Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This is a great game overall, the mistaken impression that it's too easy quickly goes away when you play far enough into the game. There is one major problem with it though: you must be online and connected to their server to be able to play, even as a single player game. A few issues stem from this:

**If your internet is down, or if you want to take your laptop on holidays, or to a more remote area without a connection, or on a plane, or in many other situations where you might find yourself without a connection, but would like to pass the time by playing it, you can't do it at all.

**If you have a connection but their server is down, or the game is being "patched" or "updated" on their end, which can take the whole day , you can't play either (Actually, the server is down as I write this, so I can't play right now). This can happen in the middle of the game, at which point you start to get little warnings that the server will shut down in so and so many minutes.

**If in some 15 or 20 years you want to revisit the game, or show your kids etc.., but by then the company has decided to take the server down because the game would then be too old, or if the company is out business etc.., the game would be lost. It feels like the $60 is for a long term rent, rather than a tangible ownership of a game than you can physically install on your machine and boot it whenever and wherever you want it.

Bottom line: I don't regret buying it and recommend it to anyone (casual and experienced gamers alike), because the game itself is great, well developed, providing hours and hours of fun (when you actually get to play it) - However, be very aware of this limitation and be prepared for some sighing when you can't connect to their server. I know nothing about computer programming and this is probably not even possible, but maybe one day there will be a patch that will allow the game to be played offline too, the old-fashioned way?
