I thought this MAY be a useful post. To be fair you can buy mobile phone chargers from Poundland, they usually take 4 x AA batteries. They are OK, but this seems to be a better quality product and takes two of the more common - and overall cheaper - AA batteries. You can also use with rechargeable AAs, as I do, which brings the cost down. It looks as if it comes with a range of adapters, but they don't say for which phones. Handy to take on holidays / keep in your pocket / bag.

Price is £4.95 + £1 delivery (low delivery rate is a temporary offer) less 10% Quidco discount, here's what Gadget Shop say:

"This fantastic On-The-Go Mobile Charger is just one of the latest advances in mobile phone technology hoping to put an end to flat battery syndrome. It comes with a chain for connecting it to your keyring and fits virtually every phone on the market. Whenever your battery is running out of charge all you have to do is plug it in and top it up. The batteries in the On-The-Go Mobile Charger will give you approximately 2 hours of extra stand-by time or 30-50 minutes talk time and since it's powered by straight forward double A's the batteries are easy to replace."

Please note:
1) you get a FREE 32Gb Mini thumb drive with this and 2) This is NOT like the pound shop chargers. It uses 2 x AA batteries, has an off/on switch and neon indicator, plus a built in inverter to maintain a constant voltage of 5.5 volts throughout the charge cycle so from 2 x AA 2700 NiMh rechargeable batteries, you should, in theory, get 2 full charges out of it. The pound shop ones just take 4 x AAA batteries, not as powerful, and the voltage will drop as the batteries run down.

Just realised rep goes down if I post a cold deal. This charger is perfect for me because it is the only portable charger in the UK to have a capactity of over 6 watt hours (2 full charges), so not posting any more deals until I understand the rules! This now marked as expired!

Just for the record, this is not. It carries circuitry that maintains the correct voltage throughout the charge cycle. And unlike the poundshop AAA battery version, it is capable of outputting over 6 watt hours with two fully and freshly charged AA 2700 batteries. I tried it myself recently with a Sony Ericsson K850i, it fully charged twice on one set of AAs.

However, I wasn't bothered that people could not understand this - until I realised that a cold vote affected my rep. Now I am going to ask the mods to remove this deal.

Haha, thanks! Actually the problem is that people are widely associating this with the poundshop items. I wouldn't give a monkey's, apart from the fact that it reduces my ability to give heat. However, that is an issue that I am now debating in the random wotsits forum. It's gone up a bit now, I think I will add some info to the deal to make it cleared, this is not like the poundshop chargers.

BUT - to be truthful, I have had mine replaced, because there is a design fault. The lid won't close when it has batteries in it. I will write to Gadgetshop about this, I have fixed mine by filing 2 bits of plastic off inside the lid. They need to go back to the supplier and get a new set of battery covers. Anyway, they gave me two free mini thumb drives. I will let you know what gadgetshop say about this.

-edit - maybe I got out of bed on the wrong side this morning to get all wound up over this! :-D
