Good price n great for emergencies but it will probably only charge a high end smartphone to around 70% .

Some one posted one last week with a built in torch (led) and charged an I phone 6 full then half again think it was on eBay

These are the way to go.... Most of the time you run out of battery it is when you don't expect it. You don't require the powerbank to fully charge your phone, you just need it to give enough juice for a few more hours until you get to a charger.

I have lugged around a 5200mAh one for over 3years and have only used it a dozen times. For me, this is perfect. Small enough to not notice the extra weight yet enough juice to get me home.

Always handy if you happen to carry a charging cable everywhere you go ;)

Exactly!!

These are essentially the same as the free EE Power bars, are they not still giving them away?

dont know anything of the brand but looks ok , for anyone looking for a bigger ..capacity , and unfortunatly size. then anchor is the top dog of portable chargers ! paid £30 for an ec technology one after trying out various ones that diddnt live up, but then I discovered anchor would never buy anything else again, or even need to ! makes constant trips between Glasgow n Liverpool worry free as far as charging my tablet and 3000mha bat in the phone.
however if you don't wanna pay £20 then these would come in handy.

starts 14th of June, which is this Sunday

to save anyone looking for them now

These would be good for my iPhone 6 but not my note 4 as after charging efficiency (~66%) and voltage conversion is taken into account there's only about 1600 mAh. So yeah, good for the more efficient smaller battery iPhone but not for the power hungry larger phones...

I bought a 6" charging cable that is always plugged into battery pack. If I pick up the battery, the cable is always with it.

Don't use EE, so this doesn't really help.

I like these smaller packs a they can help you out in an emergency and easily slip into your pocket. If I need more (e.g. for longhaul travel) then I carry a larger battery pack.

The fact that we even need these says a lot about the smart phones of today..

I don't care about contactless payments with my phone, I don't care about a 4k 6" screen, I don't care about a 79 mp camera with 10x optical zoom- just put 90% of your R&D budget into batteries.

The next phone manufacturer to make a phone with comparable specs to something like a galaxy s4 but with a 3 day + battery gets my ££

Great for glastonbury. Other outdoor events etc. but I opt for a cheap handset that the battery will last a few days. The main feature of a handset in those situations is it will phone someone. IMO. Hot for those who need there smartphone.

Agreeeeeed. Though I think there genuinely aren't any viable battery improvements other than just sticking a bigger battery and making the internals more efficient. Every now and then you hear about a new battery technology but they run into issues and the development stops. Personally I think lithium batteries are fine, it's this idea that phones need to be paper thin that's a major problem. If manufacturers just used bigger batteries, it would be a non issue. Obviously that would cost them more so it's not likely it would happen.

Yeah, who needs the 'phone to do stuff, so long as you don't need to plug it in to charge it for a few days.

These power banks will charge an iPhone to 100%, but not much juice is left when you charge a 1600mAh phone (iPhone 5 5s 5c)
#21
I can barely charge my S5 to 40% with these size batteries and it takes ages and it also takes a surprisingly long time to charge the power bank itself and I found myself needing it and it not having any juice left. From personal experience I would far rather spend an extra £ and get multiple charges of one cycle.
Although these are excellent if you've got E-Cigs/ wireless headphones things that you don't remember to charge every night

This. I have an anker charger and an EE powerbar. Both are used to charge up my PS4 pads haha
#23
why would I need a phone that has any more functionality than say a Samsung galaxy s3?

when they got to the galaxy s3/ iPhone 4s they should have said right... no more 'advancements' let's just make the batteries not suck
#25
Much cheaper (less than £4) on amazon for the same size.
#26

Cheap Chinese phones risk blowing up because of their poorly designed or even fake batteries. You are risking your life with such a big battery in your pocket.

I've a theory that a device uses more power when it's charging. It thinks it's plugged into a wall socket and power is unlimited so it doesn't bother to use any power saving functions. I have 2 batteries for my phone and one external charger. One I have on charge and one in my phone. That's why I never have to charge my phone, it's never tethered to a wall socket or whatever, I find it very freeing to just swap batteries every time one gets to 10% or whatever. Also means that over time each battery only gets half as much use as if it were a single battery so neither are knackered after a couple years.

Beware These aren't free - these are on hire and if you lose it there's a £20 charge to replace it , or £5 if you don't return it at the end of the 18 month hire period!

See terms and conditions here:

As somebody already said, a whole variety of these on Amazon at half the Aldi price or less. Overall, not value for money

​Check the small print, they aren't free! You have them for 18 months, I'd you don't return them then they cost £5.99!

​No it isn't, it won't see an iPhone through 2 days let alone 5.....
