Big win: Sold 305,000 Halo Pocket Power 2800 Chargers on QVC debut

For inventor Garold Miller, TV success is still sinking in.

His Halo Pocket Power 2800 Charger, a compact charger for cell phones, debuted in November on QVC and set a new network record for most units sold in a day. It's still sold out on QVC.

This isn't the first time that Miller has hit the innovation jackpot. He invented guardian angel pins that were sold at gift shops nationwide. He created a fashion jewelry collection that made millions in revenue. And 10 years ago, Miller debuted a beaded "prayer box" bracelet on QVC that became a bestseller.

The Halo charger is Miller's attempt at creating a great tech product that "makes life easier."

The universal portable charger, which you can charge in a car or on your computer, comes in multi-colored metallics, even a bright pink leopard print. It offers six hours of charge time for all types of cellphones, e-readers and Bluetooth headsets.
