Marrs Mission 1
Price Paid: $49
So far this has proven to be useless. I purchased it intending to charge my iPhone. The description on the REI site indicated it would work with any iPhone. I charged it up overnight using the USB input, hooked up my iPhone and nothing. If I can figure out how to get it to work, I'll revise my review...until then I rate it as useless.
