    Agreed, I purchased one of these and the think is awful! It barely charged my phone and would turn off after only a few minutes. It was a very short lived hassle though because it failed to take a charge after a couple of weeks anyways.

    I have one I got at Amazon for $9.99. It works fine. It charges my DNA to 50-70%. Beware, there are many different sellers of this item on Amazon. At best a lot of them are probably Chinese knock offs of the knock off, but Anker usually has good ratings.

    I bought one about two months ago. I have used it several times with no problems on my iPhone 5 and now on my 6. It charges fairly quick and provides a charge close to as fast as being plugged in the wall. I forgot a flashlight on my last yosemite trip and ended up using this attached to my phone coming down from the falls. Worth every dollar so far.
