It comes in 5 different colors. I chose fresh green, which has a hint of gold.

Wondering how big... Errr... Small it is?


It has 4 light indicators.

The LED Torch at the top which is activated by pressing the power button for 3 seconds helps a lot when I'm too lazy looking for my phone amid all the junk in my purse and I need to light my way or shine light on something. It makes a good purse light too!

Pros:
LED Torch
Compact and light weight
Cool design
Easy to use

Cons:
Heats up fast if used inside a bag or a non-air-conditioned room

Overall Rating:

This product was definitely worth purchasing. It can fully charge my BlackBerry Q10 1.5 times with data turned on, and 2.5-3 times with data turned off. Tried it on a friend's Iphone 4s with data turned on: fully charged in 1.5 hours with enough power left for almost another full charge on the same unit.

Though it may not have the greatest capacity, it is just right for me and my usage (I only carry a power bank for emergency purposes). It definitely fits my lifestyle.
