i bought this on the Black Friday offer of half price and for the price of £4.99 i wasn't expecting much.
On receiving the PowerVault, i must say i am pleasantly surprised.The packaging is a plain white "mobile phone" style box with only the Damson logo and a product info sticker. On opening the box the PowerVault is set on a plastic insert with the charging cable underneath. The instructions received were not in English which was a shame, but to be honest there is not much that can be said.
The PowerVault came with a slight charge as shown by the nice indicator on the side and a button on the end let you see how much charge it has. Connecting the Micro USB cable to the computer starting it charging and again the indicator flashed to show it was changing. After fully charging the indicator went solid.
Plugging it in a phone activated the charge indicator and the phone successfully charged and indicated the amount of charge let on the PowerVault after charging had finished.
The size of the PowerVault is 93mm x 22mm diameter so fits nicely in your hand , pocket or bag. it would have been nice to get a small carry pouch with it so that the cable and the powervault can be kept securely together but overall a very good device and a must if you are travelling or out for a long period of time without access to a mains power source to charge your device.
The micro usb cable it came with was the same as the one needed to charge the Damson Cisor and this Powervault successfully charged the speaker as well as the mobile phone.
on a side note - the micros USB cable received was white, whereas the PowerVault comes in Black or Silver, so it would have been nice to have all items the same colour, but that is minor thing and does not impact its functionality
