I was also an early Kickstart investor, but had none of the problems others had. I bought several and use one regularly, and have given the others to family members.
My daughter said she thought it was a great idea, but she's in a small house with few outlets, and the only really accessible one in the main part of the house isn't in a practical place or she would have happily kept it.
(She's planning to move into a bigger place eventually and wants me to get one fort her then, which I'll be happy to do.) I also love it for travel, since you never know what you'll find for outlets at hotels or BnBs, and I don't have to worry about bringing extra charging cables because of the USB jacks. I know the original company really messed up, but the product itself is incredibly useful, and the company that's selling it now doesn't deserve to be blamed for the mistakes the first company made.
Product or Service Mentioned: Thingcharger Charger.
