like a battery it provides up to 60 hrs of portable power for laptops, etc

This power solution provides an easy way to avoid ever running out of power with any of your portable devices, including your laptop, on the go. When fully charged, this power solution is able to provide up to 60 hours of power without the need of a power outlet
Due to the interchangeable connector tips that are included, this device is fully compatible with most portable devices from a very wide range of brands. Simply choose the connector tip to match your portable device

When you press the test button, the LED battery capacity indicator shows you how much power is remaining and when it's time to recharge
The travel bag supplied with this device is both convenient and useful as it provides extra protection
Charging via the USB outlet of a PC, laptop or USB adapter is convenient as you don't have to rely on having a suitable AC power outlet. You simply charge the power solution and have a convenient back-up supply for your portable devices on hand at all times

I have one of these - from the Orange Shop - was on here 8 months ago as a special offer for £18.

It is very good - but no way would it provide anywhere near 60 hours for any laptop. £29 is a good price - not worth £129 though. Powers my notebook for about 3 hours. Great to take away if camping. I keep it charged ready to go - and cycle a discharge every month or so to keep it in condition.

Heat added.

I think when they say 60 hrs they mean like a mobile battery, once fully charged it will have power for up to 60 hrs before going flat, so like when you are camping and after few hrs of use your laptop battery goes flat power is available in this power pack but like any other battery it will run out with use

it has a 5.6V USB output which you can use to recharge the batteries of a mobile phone. There is no way that it will supply enough energy for a 60hrs for a laptop.

mate its like a rechargeable battery or a mobile phone battery, once recharged power is available for up to 60 hrs should you require to use it , it does not say it will last for 60 hrs, with use it will decrease

duracell battery says upto 2012, which means power will be there, it doesnt mean it will power something for that long, with use power gets used up

Sorry to be a bother but I am really interested in this - has anyone here actually used this for powering a laptop? I realise I wouldn't get anywhere near 60 hours but are we talking 10 minutes or a couple of hours powering a laptop?

Thanks x

mate you have no idea what you are talking about....it will not discharge in 60 hrs... do you really want me to start to explain you how it works ;))? What exactly that 3600mAh means ?:P Your comment made me laugh ....

Before you try to explain others how batteries work and what exactly voltage, current, power, energy means I think you should try at least understand them...

energy that can be stored in the battery =mA x time x Voltage

in this case we have 1000mAhx19V (laptop batteries use 19V) = 19Wh

Now if you have the capacity rating of your battery (lets say Y) than you can check aprox. how many times you can load your laptop battery and that will be Z= 19Wh/Y.

By experience if you know how long your laptop battery last if it is fully charged(lets say 3 hrs) than you can get like Zx3hrs time....

All the above are approx calculation because charge can be influenced by many things...

[quote=Mrs.Z]Hmmm... My laptop isn't in the compatibility list

mine was not there as well but after I checked the charger compatibility (Acer) I found out that it works with my laptop. I think that a good way to find that out would be on ebay, sellers usually have compatibility lists that are bigger than the above one...

There are plenty of adaptors available on the likes of FleaBay. Managed to get an adaptor for the NC10 this way for about £3. My battery has lost its charge capacity and has to be returned to Orange after six months. Perhaps I am just unlucky, but just a quick heads up anyway. Apart from this somewhat problematic niggle, a great bit of kit!

yeh I have for my Fujitsu, my dead laptop drains the power-pack battery within an hour but then keeps going on its own battery for a further 2-3 hours.

Exactly what I did for my NC10! They're available for £3-4 or so on FleaBay

That sounds good but unfortunately my battery is absolutely knackered - it declined in running time so quickly, not really sure why :(

Do you think I can make a good profit if I flog this on FleaBay?

Just buy a new battery on fleabay. Batteries tend to go bad as they just keep being charged all the time and get 'lazy'.
#24
Got one when it was £18 from Orange, not a great deal and have never used it.
#25
Ordered one. Got a load of electronic gear that this could be handy with.
#26
could you use this to power a gamecube+screen? :3 maybe with the original power pack for the gamecube? (which I have but have never used haha)

Yes, buy as many as you can, you will become rich and powerful, you may also gain magical powers and the ability to stun a donkey by simply looking at it.

I hope this will work with the 02 joggler.

thanks

Sorry for being techno-thick but what should I pop into fleabays search engine to find the adapter thingy to enable this to work with NC10? - typing in adapter gives me full charger connections and I'm sure there must be a technical term for the bit of kit I need.
Apreciate help...ta !!

Provides about 30 minutes extra for my dell laptop, will full charge my normal phone 3 times, ditto psp. My iPhone doesn't like it though, freaks out saying on charge/offcharge constantly.
I can prove all this on my etcha-sketch if any of you get lippy.

No - because Play have a similar one for £20, and £129 is a fantasy price.

Hot!

I have a Power Gorilla which I bought for £119 last year.

it has a USB port. Most of the phones have USB to micro usb cables so just use the one supplied with your phone.

garbage456
no micro usb adaptor, the new standard adapter across all mobile phones, poor product for that reason alone.

#36
There are different capacity ones, don't confuse the cheaper ones with the more expensive ones. I have the smaller version of this. The cheaper ones are a smaller capacity, put Power4Life into Amazons search and you can see the difference, I have the smaller SCE4420 for emergency phone charging.

60 hours probably does relate to how long it can run a laptop for in ideal conditions, but like all laptop battery times depends what your doing and how hard it's working. Playing a DVD and using WiFi on a "powerful entertainment" laptop will suck the juice faster than simple word processing in a netbook.

Works OK, nice toy but don't rely on the 60 hours in real life.

You can buy a micro USB adaptor for a quid. Also don't despair if it doesn't show compatibility. One of the tips should fit your laptop.


thats not my point, all mobile phones are soon going to have the micro usb adapter for charging and this item doesnt come with it, poor

#38
what was the point then lol.

point is, is it a good deal or not. with a saving of £100 and around £70 cheaper than any other online retailers then its a HOT deal. regardless of what the actual product can and cannot do.

there are different chargers like powergodzilla on the market ( which is fantastic) but it quite bulky and all the time over 100 pounds, this is fantastic deal for good piece of basic charger, it won' t give you power for hours of laptops but it will extend it for around an hour and more time for smaller devices
29 pounds it is steal, I would advice all of you take it a chance and get one
