No worries bud, I have the 13000 and it's awesome for festivals, camping trips etc.! £23.99 is a steal for something so useful and Anker are awesome.

Ordered the mains charger as well as it seems it doesnt have one with it cheers op

Great price. I was going to order the 13000 version for £21.99 but ordered thus one. Definately better value. Thanks OP. Heated and ordered.

Thanks for this. The 3000mA battery I bought a couple of weeks ago from Anker is great, really good build quality, this will be a perfect companion to it, it'll be great for charging the Gopro whilst out and about.

Got a 13000 one a month back, which my daughter has found is useful so thats the last I'll see of that!

Ordered its big brother. These just ooze quality!

You can never have too much juice!

Sorry for the noob question, but do these pretty much charge any phone or tablet?

We have Nokia, Sony Xperia, iPhone, and my wife has S5 in the house so hoping this can charge them all when away from home (well, two at one time).

This looks really good though so heat added.

What you need to check is the output this is 5V/ 2A and 5V/1A

Anyone know if this is worth paying extra for over the tecknet of the same size at £19.99?

I've seen it time and time again. I have also experienced it myself when it comes to powerbanks stick with Anker and EasyAcc others are poorer quality (less than stated capacity, build quality, failure rates etc.) I have bought cheaper ones before and they aren't worth the saving

Yes they do charge just about anything that charges via USB.

The thing is, Anker are rolling out their new Second Generation of these batteries which are more compact and have 'smart' charge technology to charge Apple products more efficiently. For £21.99 you can get the 2nd generation 13000mAh battery.

could anyone recommend a pocket sized one to carry when about if its going to be a long day and using my battery alot? Just a single extra charge or so should do.

I wonder how many people buy one of these, charge it up at work, then use it to charge everything up at home for free lol

I wonder, if you did do that, hypothetically, how long it would take to recoup your initial outlay ...

The Anker lipstick size one just go on Amazon and put Anker you should see it (think its 3200mah)

Okay I just checked ... Gizmodo ran an article suggestng the iPhone5 costs about 50p a year to run ... and a Galaxy S3 71p, That's a full charge every day. The iPad uses £1.66 a year of electric again, if you fully charged it daily.

So in answer to my own question, sadly, it would take 48 years to recoup your costs if you stole electric from someplace else to charge your iPhone5 for free ... lol ... I suppose if you had a full house of gadgets you might make it back.

Meh

Ah but Mr Clever Clogs, the external battery has a finite number of charge cycles, so wouldn't last 48 years!

Let's see... 15000mAh, 5v to fill it assuming a perfect set up. A unit of electricity is 1 kWh and costs about 14.3p

So 15000mAhh * 5v /1000000 = 0.075 kWh
14.3p * 0.075kWh = 0.107 pence per recharge.

Price is £23.99, so it would take you 22,421 recharges to steal enough electricity to cover it.

Disclaimer, I'm rubbish at maths and have probably made a mistake above, somewhere.

does any one know a code that will work with amazon.co.uk/130…ker
Also does the above external battery have better specs in terms of speed of charging? or is the anker 15000mah in this thread better?
i want faster charging rather than capacity

Having bought two cheaper external batteries, one a teknet, I sent both back due to problems and poor quality. I thoroughly recommend this at this price. I bought one the last time this deal was on and it's brilliant.

Any idea how long this deal will be up for?

oh man...i bought the E4 recently for 19.99 with a code. would have got this if it was available

Excellent spot. I've been looking to buy something similar. Bought!

hot. I have the 13000 and it excellent.

Thanks, voted HOT and bought one.

Good post was waiting for a bargain on these. Heat added and purchased one

I bought one of these but sent it back. I'm sure it works fine but it was too big for me. It's about the same size as an iphone 5, although thicker, and it is at least twice the weight.

I've had this for a year. Amazing!!

purchased thanks !!!

My calculation was in the order of ballpark £1 per year on a weekly cycle of charge. Sense check, 1kWHr given to an electric fire is ~13p and is a whooper amount of energy when used as battery power. And if you really can consume a full charge daily then the battery would die within 3 years with about 1000 recycles, so just about £20 assuming transformer is 50% efficient. So nearly pay for itself in an extreme case. But you might just get it stolen charging it daily as it takes a long time to charge up. Better for you to crap at work daily to save the money on toilet paper and water.

That's correct maths. I used 13p per kWhr myself though.
