Order now and hopefully it will arrive before the kids break up for the summer holidays.

Sadly this won't arrive in time for our holiday to Egypt, as we leave this coming Friday, understandable as it's coming all the way from China, plus they probably need extra time to allow the glue and stuff to set properly.
But hopefully it should be here for our Turkish holiday at the end of April.

£1.08 when buying with the Gearbest app.

Other colours available.

Heads up they scam a lot so be careful!
I'd rather take my own charger and an adapter to be safe given the cost of replacing an iPhone, or any other smartphone for that matter.

because it's far easier to claim a refund if you need one

Gearbest CS is awful, last time I bought anything they kept on making accuses about the item. Easier to let PayPal do the work and get my money back.
i ordered a security camera from them & couldn't get a refund. they kept asking for silly things like they wanted me to video what the issue was...never ordering from them again. worst customer service ever!
wouldnt risk any electrical product from GB or BG, would you really want to leave this on when you go out or asleep.
Pay for something that's safe..
When i buy a device from china the first thing i do is replace the power adapter or plugs with something i know is safe
Watch the recharging as they explode...also non delivery very common ..40% or more need chasing a month later ..
buy made in uk as we are the best..

CE on some Chinese products stands for China Export, so not to our standards. Wouldn't risk buying this myself.
Got one of these off eBay. Works well just wish it was a UK plug as it comes out the adapter easy. I wouldn't leave it on if out or asleep but it seems to work well no issues and been checking the amps can charge 2 phones at about 1.3 amp or 1 at 2.5 doesn't go up2 3 as stated but does charge 3 phones at around 1amp each so that could be the 3amp out they are talking about. It does glow bright blue all the time so might be annoying if in a bedroom. But I have it on my desk so no issues
These have always been a pound on ebay

Give us a link for that then mate.
I posted this about another Gearbest cheap charger, saves me typing it again.....


Without this comment being a reflection on this particular item I'm amazed at how cheap people will go to buy both car and mains chargers for their expensive phones and tablets.

I have tried one of two, more out of curiosity, and found that their build quality can be dubious as well as the voltage fluctuations beyond the 4.5-5.5v which is acceptable. The rated amp output is rarely achieved, especially when multiple devices are connected - often related to the mains type where I would be especially concerned of fire risks. Don't believe any markings which could be stamped on them to suggest that they are compliant with safety standards.

Even if the charger is rated close to an overall rating of 3A I have found when testing others a 1A draw from a single port might show fluctuations beyond 4.5v-5.5v but put another device pulling 1A on another port and that voltage can spike way beyond those acceptable ranges.

One Chinese supplied battery charger came with a EU type mains plug, they included a UK adaptor. The adaptor had no "closed covers" shielding the neutral and live, with copper bared meaning a person could touch the live terminal. Also it would spark when plugging in the EU plug, along with having no fuse.

I generally have favourable experience with

Anker
RAVpower
and Aukey, although limited experience as yet with that last brand.

Their build quality, warranty and customer service, if needed, is pretty good.

Cheap really can be nasty and potentially damaging at times.

Just trying to be helpful.

This will just stay in my wife's suitcase (Always half packed by the way) for our travels.
We don't own expensive phones, we both have Xiaomi Mi A1's, (Just updated to Oreo) that we ordered from China for £165 a piece from Banggood and TomTop.

Then what is the point of buying one....?

Everyone here likes a bargain I understand that. But there are some items which can represent fire risks and be dangerous in their use.

Using either of my Drok load testers and Muker-J7 USB MultiMeter or my DROK Digital Amp Voltage Multimeter I'm surprised at how bad really cheap units can perform. Their voltages can spike way outside the 4.5v-5.5v which is considered safe when plugging devices in.

I really would be worried using such a cheap unit and leaving a device plugged in, even more so to then go to sleep leaving a device on charge.

There is no 'China Export' mark - it's a myth - it's just a straight forward attempt to fake a CE logo.

I think it's frankly bonkers that people will buy this tat to save a couple of quid...

Travel, I think you missed the point.
You got to be silly in the head to use this.. Been on the news about usb chargers being a fire risk. Not this one but I would only buy branded or something I think has been tested..

The takeaway at the end:
"You don't really want to buy these because A: They are not 3.1 amp, and B: They are not safe"

Forgot about the BigClive vids, I like those

For £7.90 I would sooner buy one of these from Ikea...

also dealing with Gearbest has not been good for me in the past, needing PP to finally get my money back.


Not sure how to insert videos...?

Why would you risk your life for a couple of quid when you can buy a CE quality charger instead ?
Bought this before for like 50p late last year. I am a big Gearbest / Banggood fan, I've bought dozens of electrical items but wouldn't recommend this charger.

Very flimsey and it simply doesn't feel safe at all. We took ours on holiday and ended up buying a new because we didn't trust leaving it it plugged in.

Of course we all know nearly every charger will be made in China. It's a big country with thousands of factories making products. Some make excellent products and some make products that can explode, get unstable or electrocute. The point is some chargers are safe and reliable and some are not. This particular product is one that is not likely to be safe and reliable.
