      Got mine in Germany. I really love the packaging nice features... ;-)
      The card is great. Have a cable with me is a great idea at all. I tried also the generator and could get my phone to start loading, but not wíth the attached cable but with an external cable attached to the USB port. The cranking is a little but to hard for two reason. First the lever ist to small or I have to large hands... What I expected was something folding out to extend the lever to at least 2-3 cm. The scond point is, you have to have a little force in order to produce enough energy for charging the phones. But the crank is to short to really transport the power. I tried to crank hard for about 1 min and got both hands tired fast, beause you have to hold the generator with one hand hard and to crank hard with the other hand.
      I have to say, I still really like the idea! But for using it I will do only in real emergencies... ;-)

      Thanks for your support for the CG1.
      CG1 is not the conventional power bank, it’s an emergency charger when you don’t have any power source and need to make an emergency call. Just hand crank the CG1 and get some power.

      The built-in 400mA battery that stores the hand-cranked power is a buffer only. it certain can’t feed the S6 edge’s 3000mA battery too much(power off phone can charge more %) .

      The reasons we designed 400mA are:
      1. Make CG1 as small, thin, and light as possible. Then, people can have it in their bag or even wallet, and not leave it at home because the device is bulky.
      2. Hank cranking is not laid-back work, you will only use it for emergency situations. The cranked power is just for few calls or messages. You can generate some power on the spot just by yourself.

      That’s what CG1 is designed for.

      After using my charger for a few weeks now, I have to say I am a bit disappointed with the performance. Charging my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, I go from "FU" ie. full battery down to 15% power fairly quickly and only increasing the charge of my phone just over 5%. If the point is to not use power from the phone, so it does not drain as quickly, then I get it, but the fact that it takes less than an hour to drain the entire battery makes this less than useful. Is this common? Are other people having this same problem?

      never received item... asked creator for tracking or status without i need to register to some stupid site but no response... finnally gave up and registered (forced to do so) and I can see item was never delivered as per this link http://www.17track.net/en/track…

      It's frustrating when creator answered everyone except my messages :-(

      can I get item delivery sorted? or just refund to end this bad experience? as I don't like when creator ignores me

      You can uncover the lid and take a look at the storage case.
      There's suppose to be an adapter in CARD generator storage case: )

      Just recieved mine today in Japan, Thank you!
      I had the Plan B combo & the adaptor was already attached to the charging cable
      The packaging took me a little bit to figure out but I was able to to do it :)
      Thank you for this very handy tool :)

      Just received it right now, pretty cool, i like it! :)

      Though it was hard for me to open packaging (i broke both of them while trying to open it) and the Plan B combo does not include any adapter?

      Still, it's great to have all tools i need around and am looking forward to use them in action! :)

      OMG.

      I am able to insert TF card into reader; I was talking about the whole kit. Isn't it supposed to keep TF card besides adaptor, cable and pin?

    26. CARD Creator on February 3

      @Sam
      Thank you for your suggestion. We’ll see how to adjust the package. Glad to know you like the idea of re-usable packaging : )

      @Sanny
      LG battery device may not support slow charging mode. There’re two reasons that CG1 is designed in slow charging mode.
      1. Slow charging mode makes less currency consumption. On the other words, it saves the power much more than fast charging mode under the charging process. for a emergency charger, get more power is more impotent than charging speed.
      2. CG1 is designed in ultra-compact size. There’re 400mA in CG1 battery. more than 1C discharge would shorten battery durability. Thus, we keep the battery durability in slow charging mode.

      The loosen type A socket may be the reason leads to the situation you mentioned. Please try to plug in other electrical devices and see if it works again.

      I had a little piece of grit between the two packages which scratched the hell out of the photo frame, but that wasn't why i bought this anyway. Love the idea of the re-usable packaging but i suggest putting something between them so they dont get scratched up

    35. Sam Johnson on February 2

      Andrejs - the TF card slots into the cable underneath the big USB end, on the side opposite the switch

    36. Sam Johnson on February 2

      Love it, thanks for such a cool piece of kit :)

      Would be great to use the TF adapter/charge cable also as OTG cable, to use TF card not only as a thumb drive for PC, but as an external drive for phone, too...
      And btw, how is it possible to put TF card into this kit?! Either I'm quite stupid for it, or quite weak... or both? :)

      Finally managed to open. But what disappoint me is, it cannot charge my lg g4 battery kit. Phone is ok, but only 0,5A. So it's very slow to charge. But tell why it cannot charge the battery kit?

      My Murphy's law breaker arrived today (Montreal Canada), and I note the since it had a "estimated delivery: Feb 2017", it is therefore unusually precise. Has Murphy's law actually been beaten completely?

      I just collected mine today. It's got lots of features and is very compact. I like it especially the T Card Reader that's hidden in the USB cable.
      BUT when charging my iPhone, after a few seconds it says the accessory is not supported. What should I do?

    45. Adam Morris on January 30

      It arrived... After lots of fiddling working out how to open the packaging without damaging it... I saw the arrows, didn't know I should turn the hook...

      I have to say that this is even cooler than I expected. The charger is small, the way everything fits together both on the card and the charger is good.

      Thank you!

    46. CARD Creator on January 26

      @Jeremy
      1. Turn to the back of the packaging
      2. Turn the hook out perpendicular to the side
      3. Push open the case from the two triangular arrows
      hope it helps, tks!
