Rated 2 out of 5 by skys15 from Cheap input door. I like much if BD gear, but I’m crucial with many companies from fear of quality being lowered while prices stay the same or either go up. This seems like a cheap device because the flap that is supposed to close to protect the usb inputs doesn’t stay put when closed. It just flips open automatically. Both usb and micro usb inputs will just get filled with snow in a storm and will likely turn to ice inside. This should be fixed...cause it’s a $50 dollar battery essentially. On top of that I’m very confused as to why all their new products that use batteries still use micro usb and haven’t been upgraded to usb-c. These days that’s a sign of a product not well thought out, or a cheaply designed product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tom C from Time will tell Time will tell how durable this ends up being, and how well it holds a charge. Figured I'd be the guinea pig because I couldn't find any reviews anywhere. I don't have a scale but it feels comparable in weight to the standard loaded battery pack. Interesting features: -USB charging port to charge other devices (cell phone, inreach/gps...) in a pinch. -Rear flashing light mode (red) -Charge indicator light -3 year warranty Flap over charging ports fits securely. Connector screw to head lamp works well. I love my Icon and I look forward to using fewer disposable batteries (or losing rechargeable batteries and chargers...). Four stars because it seems well constructed and integrates easily as intended. I will update when I have any further thoughts on functionality and durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by trav from Good (so far) not Great I've used this pack twice, both times jogging at night with the pack on my head (as opposed to the chest rig). The Good: Thanks, BD, for making a rechargeable pack! It bugs me to throw away batteries, and (on paper) it doesn't cost much performance to use this with my Icon. I love that there's a flashing light on the back. That makes this much better for jogging. The Bad: The button needs work. Several times now I've tried to turn the light on and realized after taking it off that the light wasn't on or wasn't strobing (it's too dim to see the reflection off my hand to check that it's on, but it seems like it has the perfect brightness). The button needs a more positive feel to it; it's very mushy. If future models used the same button as the top of the Icon itself it'd have the right feel to use, even with gloves. The light functionality is hard to cycle through. Between the button feel and the confusing cycling instructions it took me several minutes, even after looking at the directions, to get to a strobing red light. Usually then I could just turn it off and on and it remembered the setting, but at least once it either forgot or (more likely) I switched modes unintentionally feeling around the soft button on the back. It then took me a few tries to get back to the red strobe. I'm not sure why you couldn't just cycle through the four modes with a quick 2-click, then on or off to the remembered setting with a 1-click. The Ugly: It's a little heavy on my head, overbalancing the light in front, which is just the nature of batteries and especially rechargeable. The real concern is if I put it on the Icon's body harness, the flashing red strobe is no longer in a position to announce my presence to traffic behind me. Eventually I'll probably just fix it on a waist pack and endure the callipygian highlight. Overall, I'm glad I bought it, but that button's going to continue to be problematic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ward from This is my new backcountry charger. I always had a goal zero charger with aa batteries for charging in the back country. Now I just use this and charge from it at night instead of the battery pack. Awesome! Just the head lamp and Solar panel saves weight and still provides charges to my phone and sat device.
