      This thing takes so long to crank to 100%. Way longer than you state. Also, mine doesn't charge through the micro USB connector under the cable. Also I would also advise to use it to charge with the phone in airplane mode.

      it works but it charges so slow that if you are using the phone while it is charging it isn't really charging more like slowing down the speed of power draw.

      but in a pinch it can bring a phone back to life, if you are willing to wait.

      Is it possible to get replacement parts? My sim ejector has been lost, and I would like to replace it.

      I think the price TOMO list are USD, our KS pledge is SGD.
      USD:SGD about 1:1.4

      @Adelber,
      Sorry hear about that, seems the LG model need use the own fast charger, since CG1 for emergency use, the output is slow mode(<500mA) charge same as computer USB output.

      card generator doesn't work with my main phone, which is a nexus 5x. it charges for a minute or two then just halts. not sure if i got a defective unit i havnt tried it on other devices yet. (i actually forgot where i last placed it. in the trash maybe?) i stopped using the generator ever since for fear that it would ruin the battery or brick my phone due to inefficient charging. had i known this thing won't work with LG devices i would not have backed this. the creators should have informed us of this beforehand.

      How the heck do you open the plastic box?

      @ mhoie
      Yes. Under the pace of 90rolls/min. You are able to crank CARD generator to full capacity. It’s designed to save you under the most emergency hour while electricity is really a crucial demand.

      Besides, of course, you can also charge it with standard micro USB charger and other power bank.

      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... ;-)

      @Howard Simon

      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.

    26. Howard Simon on February 15, 2017

      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

      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! :)

      @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.
