Simple small USB charger for phone or tablet. 1200mAh so won't replace the large Anker/&c version but may be useful.

Seems a bargain for £1. I didn't expect much but it topped up my iPhone yesterday without a problem when tested.

Probably worth buying a couple as backups or cheap items for kids?

hopefully its worth it please let us know what its like ei if it charges more than 50%

Might be worth grabbing a fistful for various USB-powered devices...
A few would charge a phone at a fraction of the price of a bigger charger - heat

​i have quite a few of these, the advantage of these is if it fails throw it away. if you buy one of the 10,000 mah, which is basically a bigger housing with multiple cells, would you want to open it and replace one cell when it fails. and in answer to your question how big is your phone battery?edit

Could you please test something with it?

Will it still charge the phone with a power supply attached to it charging the battery.

An expensive one I have stops charging the phone when the mains supply is attached to the input of the battery.

Thanks

​this one is the same as yours, just tested

That's a shame.

The reason for me asking if that I have a car webcam thingy that is wired to the car when the car ignition is on.
When the car is parked it has a security mode which takes a picture every 30 seconds, but needs power to do this.
I don't want to power it from the battery 24/7 so would like a small battery store like the one the op has posted, but it needs to provide power when it is charging as well as when it is not.

Shame.

I will when I get a chance - yesterday I'd charged the power bank and topped up the iPhone about 40% which was all I needed at that point.

From memory the iPhone has a ~1700mAh(?) battery so it likely won't fully charge. Still useful because of the diminutive size though IMO.

​i know it's a hassle but why not just use the power pack when parked up

It's all hard wired, I don;t want to switch things ot changes cables really.

hot. I have an 8000mah I got from amazon for 8 quid so this is good value. if the efficiency rate is say 80% then this probably has around 1000 juice, which should charge your phone up almost 50%

If it's the same as the one from poundworld I bought several months ago then don't expect much although no one should seeing it's just a quid.

I found it charged my phone about 10% more or less. Okay if you are desperate to give your phone enough charge to make a call.

This will only just charge a phone as long as the phone was not in use the whole time it was charging - from a low battery percentage this is regarding. Can't complain for £1, but if you want something to do the job a handful of times over then go get like a 10,000mAH one.

​The Xiaomi powerbank (the 10000mah one) will charge something whilst being charged itself. Got mine for about £8 from gearbest or one of those Chinese sites, it's ace, charges my phone & tablets as fast as a wall usb charger.

​Xiaomi battery for about a tenner supports this, I haven't tried it but it says that on the specs.

EDIT - Beat to it!

Many thanks for this. I've been looking but they have so many and can't see mention of charging as being charged.

As I mentioned above it topped up the iPhone with 40% as needed to 100%. For £1 seems good to me.

​This is the one I have. It definitely charges as it's being charged.

Tested one of these from Poundworld:

Cell inside actually ~800mAh
Charged my iPhone 5S to 40% from flat
Max current (from specs): 0.7 A in, 0.8 A out

Still quite impressive for a pound though.

£1 power bank from £land..... Smoking hot, or they will be after they've been on charge over night. Not for me and certainly not for kids.

I must say the included 15cm micro USB cable is worth the price alone.

Very handy.

I've been using these for a few days now and can't fault them so far. Haven't had to charge a phone from lower than 35% but had no issues. Quite convenient not carrying the 8400mAh one around.

mine didn't work

Hadn't seen this deal when posted but just bought one from my local Poundland. It's small and weighs very little so looked ideal to carry around as an emergency power-top up.

Just bought a couple of these today from our local Poundland

So far so good

Tried mine the other day - recharged my Bluboo Xfire 2 battery from 27% to 68%. Excellent little gadget for a quid.
