Need to get your conversation on tape? Want a word-for-word record you can reference at any time or send to others? Do you need an incredibly long battery life that can last months without a charge?
If you said yes to the any of the above, especially that part about long battery life, the Power Bank Voice Activated Recorder is what we recommend.

Now that everyone's addicted to their phones, power banks are everywhere! They're typically used to recharge USB-devices like phones, tablets, headphones... those kinds of things.

It works exactly like a regular power bank would - it'll charge your phone or any other battery powered device.

There’s also a magnet which lets you stick it on a desk or table - perfect for recording meetings or at your workspace. You could also just keep it in a bag or pocket, since it'll hear fine right through those fabrics.

Imagine how you’d feel if you had one chance to get something on tape...but you forgot to press ‘record’... You’ll never have this problem with this voice activated recorder. It will automatically turn on and start recording when it hears a conversation happening (roughly 60dB, for you science nerds). Audio can be captured clearly up to 50-feet away.
Set the device where you want it, and then forget it. It'll turn on the next time it hears sound thanks to its voice-activation feature. When the sound stops for any length of time, it turns off and saves the audio file to the 16GB internal memory. That's about 24 days (576 hours) worth of audio!

Wouldn't it be a disaster if the recorder ran out of batteries when you needed it the most? This recorder has such a long battery life that it isn't even a risk. It can stay in standby mode for an astonishing 150 days and record continuously for up to 14 days.
This means if you left the recorder on next to a TV during your next Netflix binge, it could record for 2 whole weeks! It only takes 5 hours to charge this recorder with a USB cable, so battery life isn't even an issue.

It’s really easy to playback your audio files on any Mac or PC. Simply plug in the USB cable and you’ll be able to listen, store or even send the audio recordings.

Users with a Windows PC also have the option of installing software that automatically adds a time/date stamp to the audio file, making the right recording easy to find. This feature will need to be activated by the user as outlined in the written instructions.

At SpyGuy, we make buying and using our products as hassle-free as possible. This audio recorder comes with free lifetime tech support, a 90-day warranty, and free ground shipping. If at any point you have any questions, just get in touch with us.

How It Works

See the keychain loop at the end of the device? That’s actually switch that can rotate from side to side. When you push it one side, the power turns on and it starts recording. Push it back, and your conversation is saved on the device.

If you aren’t talking while the power bank is on, it goes into a sleep mode to save battery life. The moment it hears new sound, it starts recording a new file. This is great because it won’t record unwanted silence.

There’s a USB cable in the box so you can connect the pen to your computer. When you plug it in, a window opens that shows all the audio recordings you made. Play them with Quicktime, WMP, or your other media player and then save them for the future, or just delete it if you don’t want it.

What's In The Box
  • Power Bank Voice Activated Recorder
  • Magnetic strip
  • USB cable
  • OTG cable (for Android users)
  • Instruction manual
Expert Advice

From SpyGuy CEO:

I wish the power bank audio recorder came out a decade before it did! It has the longest battery life and storage capacity of any audio device I've seen since I started in this industry in 2009. If you're needing a recorder that'll last as long as possible, this is without a doubt the best option.

Can I cancel or modify my order after it has been placed?

You can always change your mind regarding your order!

You have total control of the order you placed by hitting our contact widget at the bottom right of every page. You can remove items, change addresses, or cancel the order entirely.

Our team processes orders quickly - if your order has already shipped, you’ll need to open a ticket in the chat widget so we can set up a return.

If you need to add items, or change the shipping speed, we can do it if the order hasn’t shipped yet. Otherwise, you’ll need to place a new order, and we can recall the original order.

How does the order show up on my credit card?

We know you’re trying to be discreet, so we’ve gone the extra mile to have credit card transactions listed under ‘SGE LLC’ on your statement and not ‘SpyGuy’.

Do you accept checks, money orders, or gift cards?

Many of our customers are trying to be discreet and don’t want certain charges appearing on credit card statements or PayPal.

AmEx and Visa offer gift cards at most grocery stores and big-box retailers, which can then be used on this website.

We don’t accept checks or money orders.

Shipping FAQ

What is the order cutoff time?

Orders placed Monday through Friday before 5:30pm Eastern/2:30pm Pacific are shipped out the same day.

Orders placed after this cutoff time are shipped the next business day.

How do I get free ground shipping?

Every order gets free and fast UPS ground shipping. Over 90% of our customers get their order within 4 days.

Do you offer 2-day or overnight delivery?

Absolutely, we have these options at checkout. You’ll just need to place your order before the 5:30pm Eastern cutoff time, otherwise it’ll be sent the next business day.

  • 2-day - $19.99
  • Overnight - $39.99

Where do you ship to?

We can ship to any address in the USA. This includes homes, apartments, businesses, and private mailboxes.

We can also deliver to PO and APO mailboxes, but cannot guarantee 2-day and overnight deliveries will get there on time as USPS doesn’t guarantee these services.

If you would like something shipped internationally, our clients outside the USA seem to like MyUS.com as a low-cost method of having packages forwarded.

Please be aware of any international tariffs you might be charged.

What shipping carriers do you use?

We use a combination of UPS and USPS for our free ground shipping options, and FedEx for our 2-day and overnight methods.

If you have a special carrier request or requirement, please get in touch with us via the contact widget and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

What does the package look like? Does it say SpyGuy?

All orders ship in discreet, plain, brown or white envelopes and boxes.

The shipping label doesn’t say SpyGuy, of course! It says ‘Fulfillment Center’ and has the return address of the fulfillment center. The package contents aren’t listed on the packaging.

If you do an online search for the fulfillment center’s address, it doesn't return anything related to SpyGuy.

I want this sent somewhere else, is that okay?

We understand some clients don’t want this sent to their home or business, and that’s fine. Just give us the full shipping address you want this sent.

Make sure you also add the billing address, which is tied to your credit card or other payment method, otherwise your payment might get refused.

How can I track my order once it has been shipped?

You’ll be emailed a tracking number as soon as your order has shipped.

If you lost it, open the contact widget to key in your email address and ZIP code, and you can see the details about your shipment.

You can also email us at help@spyguy.com and we can assist there.

Returns & Exchanges FAQ

What’s your return policy?

We have a risk-free, 100% money back guarantee that lasts 60 days after you receive your order. We’ll refund you the full amount with no questions asked.

This applies to all products in the audio, bug detector, GPS, and hidden camera categories.

The only products we don’t accept returns on are iOS and Android recovery software. Software is non-refundable, which is an industry standard.

How do I send back a return?

You can use our returns portal to start a new return and print off a shipping label.

Please, don’t send something back without talking to us or opening up a return request. 

Your package might get lost and we’re not able to help you if you do that.

How do I exchange products?

You can do a self-service exchange right in our exchanges portal here.

How long is the warranty?

All products come with a one year warranty that covers any manufacturer defects.

How do I return a defective product under warranty?

Please get in touch with us and we’ll happily process your warranty coverage and send you a new unit.

Are any items non-refundable?

The recovery sticks are software, and are not refundable. We’re happy to exchange them with another product, if you like.

Is there a return fee?

Products returned in new and unused condition have absolutely no fees - you’ll get the full 100% of your order credited back to you.

In extreme cases, customers have sent us clearly damaged products, damaged or missing accessories, and boxes. For example, the products smell like cigarettes, or they return a product that isn’t even what they bought from us.

In these extremely rare instances, a damages fee of up to 40% of the product cost will be applied. We’re reasonable here, and we hope you’re reasonable, too.

Contact Us First

Please, do not send us anything without first contacting us! It’s very difficult on our customer care team when we get packages that we’re not expecting. They usually have no name, order number, or reason for return. 

We’re not mind readers, unfortunately, so please get in touch with us first!

Make sure that when you send us a return you include everything that was sent to you, including packaging and accessories. They also need to be in original condition. Once your return is received, we’ll issue a full credit on your card. If it’s an exchange, we’ll ship out the replacement product.

If you return your product without first contacting us and getting an RMA, or your return does not meet the conditions above, a 25% fee will be deducted from your refund.

Items That Aren’t Refundable:

Some of our items aren’t refundable. The reason is unfortunate - we've had customers out there who buy from us to quickly to get the answers they want, and then return the items to get a refund. The product, it solved their problem, and now they don’t want it anymore. 

It's an underhanded tactic that’s difficult to fight, and we can’t stay in business by being a rental company. Because of this, we aren’t able to offer refunds on the following products:

• Software
• Nanny cameras


Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:

How do you listen to the recordings?

Connect it to your computer using the USB cable, and play it back in Quicktime or Windows Media Player.

Will this work on both Mac and PC?

Yes, you can connect the pen to your Mac or PC and use it to playback and save files. You can also program date and time stamp.

How do I turn on voice activation?

Simple turn the keyring on the back of the power bank to turn the recorder on in voice activation mode.

Are there any blinking lights or sounds?

No, this product doesn't have a speaker built into it and cannot make sounds. There is a tiny hole in the side of the product that has an LED in it to charging status, but it's only on when plugged into a computer.

Does the product actually work as it should?

Absolutely! The Power bank actually powers any any devices that you connect to it, just remember that if you do that, it will reduce the battery life for making recordings.
