I was just about to say!, lol. :-)

These Power Banks with Lightning Connections/Connectors demand an absolute FORTUNE! (at least £30-£40+?).

So for just under £15 is a BARGAIN!, lol.

Take note OP ..... :-)

Thanks OP

Superb deal. The fact they have lightning built in makes this a bargain!
#6
Thanks op. Very convenient to have the Lightning cable always there. Biggest plus for me is the 2 year guarantee. Many of the popular ones on Amazon with good reviews offer 18 months

£15 for 7000mah. Not great. I got an Amazon deal for 22,000mah for £15 - works a treat.

With a built in lightning cable?

Which one was that?
#11
Bought this on the basis of favourable comments here.
I should have been a bit more wary!

1. Suggest the OP amends heading to state this is i phone etc specific. It has a " lightning" conductor, oops, connector which means it's useless for my android phone. I assume that as the USB connector is full size, this is only to recharge the device.
2. It may be light as pointed out but has an enormous footprint. Almost as big as an iPhone and almost twice as thick so not really pocket size.

I did buy a power bank from Amazon that was about the size of a fountain pen which was much better for my needs ie mini USB, but had to go back as it was faulty. Looks like I'll have to re visit that one.

Not voted either way as this will doubtless suit apple heads.
Please amend title OP - ta.

Yes, but you will need add that it is all about typical cheap chinese stuffs. Use it a few times and the capacity will half. I have a few of them bough from eBay. Now most of them are useless could just charge haff of my phone's battery.

There are a lof of cheap power bank, phone battery on eBay delivered from mainland China or Hong Kong if you want.

Want to snatch it before its gone, but need help with final check
Here is the info from their website:
http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4835707.htm?cmpid=COJUN&catalogId=10001&cjsurferid=877303346183165418%3A5rAQCxLUByOx&_%24ja=tsid%3A11674%7Cprd%3A1546795&storeId=10151&referredURL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.argos.co.uk%2Fstatic%2FProduct%2FpartNumber%2F4835707.htm&referrer=COJUN#pdpFullDesc

Compatible with for iPhone, iPod, iPad (integrated lightning cable) also works with other USB charged devices (cable is not included) handsets.

Am I right to say that this one be used for Android and/or Windows phone, only that I will need an extra cable as lightning cable only for iphone 6 ??
Thanks

yes it can, it has another usb port you can put a cable from for other devices, but you need your own cable.

Roughly how many charges would this provide for an iPhone 6? I'm sure it must say somewhere but I can't seem to find it.
#20
anyone know what the output is on this in terms of Amps

Says 3 in first paragraph of description. Copied below.


Triple your iPhone 6's battery life with the Philips powerbank. The soft touch power bank easily slips behind the iPhone and is comfortable to hold together. The integrated lightning cable has a nice metal Knurling pattern cap. The extra USB output lets you charge other devices at high speed.

True! But yes it would charge an iPhone about 3 times as an iPhone battery is 1810mAh so you would get at least 3 charges and a bit left over.

Yes many people are fully aware about that. But they are not chinese brand and subject to rigorous QC. I have given example about buying for Instance genuine Nokia battery (made in china) vs cheap chinese non branded battery.

My point here is that it is not a fair comparison, comparing between chinese non branded battery with a well known brand like this, like done by purplegoldfish, even if you include the fact that the chinese battery has a larger capacity.

Has anyone bought chinese non branded LED lamp from poundshops, in many occasions it is broken in less than a year. Compare with Philips LED how many of them are broken in less than a year ??

I do agree with you on that. I used to work in imports from China and am aware that the QA/QC is a major part of what differentiates each product. I highlighted my original comment as you only referred to stuff being made in China, not the fact that some stuff made in China is high quality and some stuff is naff.

These do 2 charges on an iPhone 6 Plus. What's the point of a power bank when you'll be charging it as much as your phone? Much prefer the 20k+ ones on Amazon.

Very true lol. It was late when I wrote that, my excuse and I'm sticking to them both.

Cold. Can get much better anker branded one on Amazon 10,000 mAh for £15.99

Is there a white version? Probably more reliable

how can a colour of a charger lead to it to be more reliable?

seen far better power banks with much more mah than this
having a lightning cable attached to the charger isnt really a benefit to me
and also how could this product retail at £69.99 oO

Charging is not a lossless process ( batteries and charging chips get hot during charging, this is all lost energy from battery ), it might or might not do 3 full charges, depending on charging efficiency.

Bought one, ok there may be cheaper options but equally there are more expensive options as well regardless of a lightning connector. According to the packaging it will charge an iPhone6 two and a half times and a iPhone 6 plus 1.8x. If the lightning connector is no use to you its cable makes into a nice handle!
The lightning connector has a 1A output, the usb (under a flap on one side) has a 2.1A output. Weight is 172g. The design with all outputs enclosed to some degree, will be useful to cyclists, walkers etc whereby it should not unduly affected in damp conditions.

Philips Power Bank battery capacity divided by iPhone 6 battery capacity.
