    Not Bad, But Not So Great

    • Written by from Pittsford

    I'm trying to go green, even any little bit. And I'm a fan of Apple products (I have lots of them!). But this particular little gem? Well, perhaps not so much. I got it Friday and plugged it in right away. Al i got was the blinking amber light which according to the instructions is either bad batteries or a bad charger. So I went through all six batteries, still got the blinking amber. Then I tried several outlets in my house, still blinking amber. So I called Apple Care and they didn't know what it was they thought I was talking about an iPod charger. So I went to the Apple store and the salesperson was very friendly and helpful, as always. I left with a replaced charger. But when I got home I had the same issues. So I went through every outlet in my house and finally found one where I didn't get the blinking amber and it actually charged all six batteries...woo hoo!!! So, do we have a very finicky product here? Too sensitive perhaps? My house is not old. There's no way all the outlets in my house are bad except one. Everything else has always worked just fine. Maybe this version 1.0 is not ready for prime time. In theory, I love the idea. Hopefully the kinks get worked out.
