1800mAH powerbank £2.99 at Iceland

34
Found 16th Sep 2015
Not the highest capacity (and the "was" £14.99 is a joke), but a handy little pack - unlike many smaller ones, rated for 1A.

Cheapest device of this type that you can buy in a UK store.

(found, Iceland Upminster, but I'd guess this isn't just local - not listed online though)

Not bad at all OP .. I haven't come across an Iceland Store that does 'Electricals' before? (or maybe that's just me ..... )

Other than Upminster, anyone know of some London Stores doing this?, thanx. :-)
Don't know about London stores, but saw these in our local Iceland yesterday(Dereham.norfolk).
We have 2 similar ones from Staples and for what they cost they are good and if the rating is good enough for what you need, you can't go wrong.

Nice find.

Never knew Iceland sold anything other than groceries.

Guess I'll have to have a good rummage through all the freezers next time.

On a rack at the checkout - along with the Fox's Melts biscuits that were 2 for £1 - VERY nice!

Try the freezers:)
I've seen a couple of these - their attached to phones belonging to the girls on the tills ( unattached the girls ) but forever watchful whilst scanning frozen food X)
Personally, if it isn't urgent, I'd just wait for the EE Power Bar thing to resume. More capacity, & you can get them for free by requesting a free sim from the EE website, then sending a 'Power' text to 365.

This is a good price though for a battery from a high street shop.
Intempo?

Reviews don't look good.

I couldn't find this in our local Iceland, but I did find lots of chips.

I bought the Kodak 5200Mah from B&M the weekend for £4.99. Should have been £9.99 but had been priced incorrectly. The manager let me have it though. It charged my £130 Ulephonetouch2 very quickly.

I wouldn't bother I got one of these from Asda not the same make tho but on using it for about the 5th time it melted my iPod (so glad it wasn't my phone)
Saw it yesterday on Hounslow Iceland.....
cold.... iceland..... jeez.. tough crowd

nice post. i have a 10000mah one, takes an age to charge. This one is good for school bags
Good for emergencies but don't expect it to charge your phone beyond 50% from flat.
Useless for a smart phone. Most smartphones have at least 2000mah batterys and this charger will have at most an 80% conversion rate so do the math you will charge about 30% of a 2000mah battery and worse if the phone is on while its charging and worse for higher capacity batterys.
Cheap lithium batteries, better practice your sad face for the Daily Mail story when your front room catches fire
It looks like same item under different name, bought one in b&m or home bargains is good for .....one time use afterwards you cant throw to the bin
Cold (There's a joke in there somewhere as it's Iceland!), only joking, good deal.

It's 'maths'...and you are very bad at it!
In dorset stores.
I don't think something as flammable as lithium batteries is something you want for this cheap

​in my car I tend to have access to a far larger power supply than this.

So is this any good for Smartphones??

Might not be a full charge for those with bigger batteries
Home Bargains selling the same ones At same price In Christchurch
I have one, it makes a strange noise even when disconnected, it doesn't hold the charge for long so not really great if you use it only occasionally. Cheap and nasty in my opinion.
good for emergency
picked up in Clapham Common. loads left

Why not pay £4.50 extra and get the Xiaomi 10,000Mah battery instead?
1,800Mah really doesn't do much at all for a modern smartphone...
