Blogging hell

 

I thought I would just reiterate the purpose of this blog as I seem to be getting quite a few comments voicing concern about me wasting/losing my money/mind etc.

Just to be clear, I am fully aware of the controversial nature of this phone charger – hence the blog!  I’m also aware that 99.9% of people don’t believe it will work as stated – all I am doing is buying it, plugging it into my phone, and blogging what happens.  To that end comments that I receive which are not related to testing will be deleted – I really don’t want to get involved in moderating people’s opinions.

In other news, I have not received a confirmation email yet regarding delivery, and it might be that my charger is not going to be in the first batch to be sent out, which is disappointing – but it is what it is.  I will let you know as soon I get confirmation either way.

    Thanks for the update emso!
    When did you place the order, exactly?

      I ordered the charger at the beginning of December, however I didn’t pay until 13th January and apparently they are being sent out to those who paid first, which is understandable.

    Thanks for recording your experiences. I think you should keep the comments. At worst they are predictably entertaining, at best they will record for future historians the closed-minded, uncurious pseudo science types that were compelled to chastise yourself for participating in an unusual event and steorn for daring to experiment. If I had the spare cash I would participate too.

      fair point, I will keep for posterity, but I will still be deleting offensive comments as my 12 year old son is reading it!

    Emso,
    Please don’t be discouraged. I’m sure that you have many non-vocal followers, like me, who support you.
    You are doing a great job. Please, keep it up.

    Thanks for doing this blog and the purchase! As far as comments, I would go full dictator and moderate…the commenters around this stuff get whack real quick. Anyway, thanks again for shelling out the $$ to do exactly what so many of us would like to do.

    Thanks for taking the time to set up this blog, really looking forward to your review of the Ocube product, and that USB-voltage meter device you linked to seems like I’ll have to grab one for myself. 🙂
