Can you change the battery? I guess it has a 18500 lithium cell inside, and you can get 3400mAh ones.

EE only had to recall a very small % of them - mine works fine (or at least it did until I lost it in a house fire a couple of weeks ago - still haven't found out what started it oO )

Shame . . what a waste of a power bar
Apparently the 500k power bars recalled were sent to sweden for testing & they were all fine! Wonder how much ee have lost plus the £20 vouchers handed out.
My local ee power bar charging points were removed a while ago, wonder if people can still swap?
Or ee are done with it allowing everyone to keep there's?

bought this yesterday for a trip to London, so far so good. but when it ran out of charge got quite hot in my pocket...

ive got a samsung galaxy s6, put it on charge it at 36% battery and it charged it up to 91%

2200 mAh? Won't be able to charge an average smartphone for just one fully charge! Was advised to get a power bank which should have at least 2 times of capacity of battery. Voted cold.

2200mAh too low for anything real for a full charge,
voted cold
absolute minimum needs to be 3000mAh

for a couple of quid more you can get 3k+ mAh chargers outputting 2.1 amps, this will take an age to charge anything and be flat after one use. great idea for stocking fillers but you can get much better elsewhere.

Argos are making a tidy profit on these things. You can get just the case on aliexpress for 86p and with the remaining 4 quid you could buy yourself some decent 18650 batteries without protection. These banks have built-in protection circuits in them so you can afford you get cheaper but better quality unprotected cells.

The order I made last month came and they contained the HOTCHIP HT2269 IC specs heet below:

From the design of this argos bank I am pretty sure they are from the same supplier, and I bet the quality of the cells they use in significantly lower than what you could get with your remaining 4 quid. I myself have a lot of access to laptop batteries which is a good source.

If you fancy going for this option so you can swap out batteries try and chose branded ones such and samsung and panasonic, avoid any with fire in the name. Also avoid batteries with protection circuits in because they are a bit too big for these banks.

So do I order the case and a battery from the links you sent and that's it? How long did delivery take on yours?

Mine took a couple of weeks, it is on a slow boat from China so it sometimes can take a little bit longer. The same rule applies to the batteries as well really. It is not as convenient as nipping into Argos but because you choose the cell you directly dictate the quality of the powerbank, plus it is cheaper.

You can go for cheaper 18650s from aliexpress but beware some are pulled from old laptop batteries and/or have questionable capacities.

Dude, can you give us a link to one of those that you've seen?
I'm pretty sure they don't exist
