I got this as a present and it's nice.
I couldn't and still can't get it to charge with my apple phone charger and cable.
It only seems to charge with the supplied very short 5-inch long cable which is very flimsy, and that has to be put in the correct slot in the correct orientation otherwise, nothing will happen. The sockets the USB and lightning cable go into are hidden behind a rubberized shroud so you can't see clearly whether you have plugged the cable in or not.
Anyway I'm not too pissed off as it was a gift but if I had paid good money for this I would have returned it and demanded they resolve these design and manufacture issues before selling at such a high price.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
