    The very successful kickstarter, no outlet no problem, that I first heard about here, has fulfilled their kickstarter orders and the web store is now live!

    Their prices are very good compared to similar devices on the market. I have been using a zagg sparq 2.0 for over a year and I can't live without it. But I paid 100 bucks for it.

    No outlet no problem's expedition is half the price and almost doubles the battery size and available charges.

    They have a 10$ off coupon code which is fbgrand. You also get free shipping for the first week, or until they sell out.

    Go to their facebook page and show them some "like" :)

    I tried to use the coupon and every time it failed. I went straight to Amazon and ordered the Anker E4 for $46.95 instead. 13000mah works for me!!!

    They had some hiccups with the store today, I contacted Anthony via Facebook and he responded right away. Took care of me and my order shipped today.

    His helpfulness went a long way with me hence my post. All the kinks should be worked out now, he posted about it on their Facebook page.

    You can spend your money whereever you choose, but I like the fact that he is here in the US and applaud him for doing what he is doing.

    Buyer beware, there are a lot of backup battery solutions out there, but a lot of them are junk. If you watch his kickstarter video, he tested a lot of them, and that is why he designed his own.

    A little patience goes a long way :) I wish you luck with your purchase though.

    I have that battery too. 13000mah is great to charge your iPhone 5 6-7 times.

    I picked up the destination simply because of the brushed aluminum. I have not really "used" it yet but hope it's as good as he says. Anthony was great with communication on ks so I'm pretty confident these will be top notch. Like you said, I like that he's in the US (Colorado like me!) and I love spending my money that will stay and support the local community. That big one above was out of boulder and I really wish I would of seen it before it ended. Oh well, looking forward to using my destination and giving it a good workout.

    You did mention the customer service offered by Anthony. I will second you on this being a shining example of WHAT a company should do and HOW to give customer service. His communication is top notch, he and his wife pumped out thousands of rewards for their KS project on their own (I think their son helped out too). He responds fast and doesn't hide from his backers like some of my other projects.

    Do these have phantom drain? If I fully charge it will it have 100% capacity in 2-3 months without use?

    I should receive mine today, so I have been unable to test as of yet.

    It is my understanding that they are in an off state till you depress the power button. So they hold their charge for a longer period of time. Check the Facebook page as I believe there was a discussion about this.

    Heard back from Anthony, they lose about 1-2% per week.

    Are there any kind of battery that will keep a full charge for that long?
