in the case of steorn and thier muppets - we have yet to see any evidence that it DOES work
In my first few hours of non-systematic testing I found the Ocube was able to light up some LED arrays for quite long periods of time, but after a while the LEDs would shut off. After leaving the unit for a while, it seemed to recharge. So it acted like it had a battery in it, which seemed to contradict what Steorn told me. This morning I woke up, and the first thing I did was to see if the Ocube could now charge any of my mobile devices, and it turns out the answer was no. Nothing would charge. However, it was able to light up the LED.
but only for short periods of time now. Not like when I first started using the cube. If I put in the LED it will light for 10 - 20 seconds and then shut off. I have to wait a few minutes before it will charge up again. I will get some more precise times for you later when I'm more organized.
