    this thing has about 280 reviews, all since Sunday. And a majority of them seem to be 5-Star reviews. smells fishy.

    I smell fish too, not just the reviews but also the 18,000 mAh claim in something this size. They probably did something like use 6 x questionably rated 3000mAh 18650 cells to mean that at low discharge rates (not the 2A @ 5V max rate) it could be 18Ah @ 3.7V

    Even so, it looks pretty handy but not $90 worth of handy when you can get an 11.2Ah pack for under $30.

    Here's one of the 5-Star "reviews" -
    "I actually haven't received my Limeade Blast yet, but still I am already excited about it. I look so much forward to not having to carry a set of chargers and not having to stress in order to find a wall outlet somewhere hidden behind a radiator or under a table. Just plug in and go! Like! "
