What is Pocket Hose Battleship?Telebrands is putting HEMP in almost everything, now they made a version of the Pocket Hose with Hemp infused fibres. The new hose is called the Pocket Hose Battleship. Why the word “Battleship” because hemp ropes were used to secure battleships. These battleship ropes were made from the hemp fibers extracted from the ABACA plant and hence they were so strong.
How does the Pocket Hose Battleship work?In their review of the Pocket Hose Battleship, Telebrands claim that the same hemp is used in their new “battleship” version of the Pocket Hose. An also claim in their review to be the STRONGEST of all the Pocket hose ever created (mind you they have been quite sensible not claiming to be THE STRONGEST HOSE EVER MADE, bu the strongest of the “Pocket” hose). In the review demo video, they show two pickup trucks pull the Pocket Hose Battleship in the opposite direction and the hose stands intact, this is the same old trick from the earlier Pocket hose model.
Charcoal ConnectorsThe second “revolutionary” feature of the Pocket Hose Battleship is that the connectors are claimed to be infused with “purifying charcoal”. The connectors are lead-free and safe to drink water from. Also the Pocket Hose Battleship review from the manufacturer claims that it retains all the other properties like “growing in size as the water flows in”, “retracts as the water is turned off”, “does not kink” etc.
Now that you have seen the Pocket Hose Battleship claims, let’s see if the Pocket Hose Battleship really lives up to its claims.
Pocket Hose Bursts OpenReviews mention that the earlier versions of the Pocket Hose burst open out of the material casing. There are over 3200 critical Pocket hose reviews and the most common complain in those hundreds of reviews is that bursts open. The “bursting” problem has continued with the mid version of the “BRASS” Pocket Hose.
Critical ReviewsThe earlier model (the original Pocket Hose) had 72% of critical reviews (1 and 2 star) while the BRASS model had 45% of critical reviews, the “percentage” of critical reviews have gone down by 60%. You can expect the same in the case of the Pocket Hose Battleship. But even then there remains a substantial number of critical reviews even in the case of the Pocket Hose Battleship, raising question marks on the claims made by the manufacturer.
The Hemp BenefitOur reviewers say that the manufacturer of the Pocket Hose Battleship has come up with the most brilliant marketing ideas of the HEMP fabric and they have associated it with the hemp ropes used to secure the Battleships. But as a buyer you need to ask the questions:
“Does the hemp fibers in the Battleship Pocket hose really make it strong?”
“If the “Hemp” fiber idea is so revolutionary why didn’t other companies capitalize on it?”
“Is it the same hemp fibers that were used in securing the battleships?”
“Charcoal Infused Connectors, are they any good?”
OK now lets analyze these Pocket Hose Battleship questions
“Does the hemp fibers in the Battleship Pocket hose really make it strong?”This question is inherently related to the third question “Is it the same hemp fibers that were used in securing the battleships?”, the answer is NO. The hemp fibers used in the ropes to secure the battle ships are extracted from the ABACA plant found in Philippines, while the one used in the Pocket Hose Battleship are extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant native the Americas. So what the Hempvana and Telebrands are proclaiming in their Pocket Hose Battleship review is a big lie.
“If the “Hemp” fiber idea is so revolutionary why didn’t other companies capitalize on it?”Another important point to note is that if the Hemp Hose” idea is so revolutionary then why didn’t the reputed brands like Camco, Teknor, GardGuard, Apex, Flexzilla etc did not capitalize on this “Hemp” concept. Simple because the concept does not work. Hempvana is making false claims regarding the “innovation” in the form “Hemp” Hose.
“Is it the same hemp fibers that were used in securing the battleships?”Nope the hemp used in the Hempvana Pocket Hose is extracted from the Cannabis Sativa while the ones used in “Hemp Rope” comes from Manila, Philippines. The two hemps are in no way connected.
“Charcoal Infused Connectors, are they any good?” Another innovation in the
