To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So far it works. Even on 2 D cell batteries it produces good voltage. I used mine to "supercharge" a harbor freight electric fly swatter. I would recommend using something other than D cell batteries though, they will work but drain pretty fast. Something like an 18650 cell works great!
