I am new to the group and have searched the previous threads and not seen any relating to faults with Wiztabs, however I also noticed that Wiztabs doesn't appear anywhere on the lists of various tablets referred to on this site - which tells me alot! A friend and I bought 3 7" Wiztabs for our respective kids for Christmas, from one of those group buying schemes. We thought we were very clever getting in early to buy Xmas presents at fantastic rates compared to (am I allowed to say it?) an ipad. Being an experieinced parent I didn't want the kids to open the presents on Xmas day then have to wait several hours for the batteries to charge. So a few days before Xmas we charged the 3 units up and preloaded some games and books (otherwise they borrow my kindle when I want it). One of the units failed to charge at all, so as my friend's child is much younger she gave me his as he was none the wiser and only giving one of my boys a unit was never going to be an option, and I was to replace it after the mad Xmas rush. Phew! Situation rescued I thought. So my 9yo and 11yo opened their presents and were v excited, for a while. The batt was down to about 25% without having been used, the games I had loaded on the 11yo's tab failed to operate fully unless the batt was fully charged, ie as soon as batt level reduced so did the efficiency. I am talking shoot em up deer hunter type games. Last night, he went to get the tab off the charger and the battery had morphed into twice its size and popped the back off the tab. It is impossible to either charge it or put the back on it. Why did this happen? There is zero chance of him having used the incorrect charger for the device. So... we have 2 out of 3 brand new units that have failed - one dead on arrival from the factory it would seem. I am anticipating all kinds of warranty problems because of the way I made the puchase, some months before Xmas, and also because last Xmas (you would think I would have learned?!) I tried to return a factory fail and the manufacturer and the group buying place each put the responsibility on the other. End result? The 8yo's dead r/c tarantula is still in my wardrobbe. Anyone want it? Thanks for reading thus far! My question is, should I cut my losses, having paid $175 for each unit, and go for the real deal ipad? Or cut my losses and buy some other android (which one)? or go through the nause of trying to get the group buying place to provide a replacement that given the track record of a 66% failure rate, is going to set my kids up for further disappointment? I do not want them to have email, internet or buying access, but I do want them to have a variety of game apps, ebooks, camera and photo editing etc. All advice welcome please.
