Rechargeable Mobile Power Pack


Compatible with the majority of standard mobile phones
USB connector powers up iPods and accessories, MP3 players, PDAs, digital cameras, Bluetooth® headsets and many more digital devices
Small, lightweight design - fits in your pocket
Reusable reserve power pack - no batteries required
Mains power supply included
LED power gauge

This seems a great price for something that you can pick up in store.
The pack itself is rechargeable via a usb port and it comes with a plug to charge it with the mains if need be. The mains charger is 100volt to 240volt so can use it anywhere in the word really with an adaptor.... The packaging claims 2000mAh of power.
Also the Sony Ericsson adaptor is for the current models, I know previous older rechargeable packs used to come with the older type of plugs. And there is a female usb plug adaptor, which means those with a usb plug socket built into your mp3 players can use this to recharge them....

edit: The adaptors included are:

Nokia,
mini Nokia
Motorola,
Samsung,
Siemens
Sony Ericsson
Mini USB
USB male
USB female

Thats 9 connectors in total....

also don't forget that warranty will be with Maplin rather than purchasing from a site like dealextreme who are in another country....

don't forget as the mains adaptor has a usb end you can use this to charge other items that charge via the usb port. For example my Garmin Nuvi sat nav unit can be charged with it.... :thumbsup:

free delivery till Sunday makes this even cheaper than going to the store!

I just made it HOT.

However, you can buy a 'USB battery extender' for about 6 quid that takes 4x AA batteries - so if you use 4 x 2700mAh rechargeables you are looking at 10800mAh of charging rather than the 2000 here.

Here are some...

Erm, no.

4x 2700mah batteries (at 1.5v each) would still give 2700mah at 6v

You could only get 10800mah if you ran them in series and would only get 1.5v - i.e. pointless.

Fair point I did it as watts stored rather than amps.

The capacities are almost identical.

However - the one taking rechargeables will always be able to use AAs which are increasing in capacity all the time (currently it can give a full afternoons wifi on my mobile and still show 40% capacity). Next year they expect 3000mAh and 4000mAh by the end of 2010, so the multiple AA housing will continue working at the higher capacities - so will not become outdated - or be binned when its batteries expire.

The multiple AA one also lets you buy normal batteries if you are in an airport/station/ferry and cannot recharge.

Not expired. Still at 9.99 in store and online Friday 11 July

Got 2 yesterday 14 July @£9.99 and still at that price today.

Is there anyway to "unexpire" the thread??
