Looks great price..what is the company like? Just asking as "usually despatched within a week" sounds vague for delivery (especially in run up to Christmas)

I get a message saying the code can’t be applied to the contents of my basket if I try using my student code

I was going to go for this but when you go to their 'contact page' or FAQ, I decided to swerve it. Pretty sure there is not an 'about us' linky on their site either.

It was a mad moment thought of purchase, apologies if I am wrong.

does this actually fast charge a samsung s6?

Yeah, it is indeed a weird one. I had it in my basket and applied it just after I saw the post, then subsequent attempts have not allowed it for some reason. I've tried signing in/out/delete cookies etc, and can't get it to work again.....

oooh... get 10 of these babies and crack them open and get all them goody 18650s and make your own 100AH lithium battery for £150...... tempting.

Nope. It doesn't do quickcharge.

Ive always found Anker to be of superior quality, great company.

Be careful - these are not as tough as they look!

The two USB power out slots aren't very strong and it's really easy to push a USB cable in the wrong way up, stressing the slot. I found myself doing this frequently so decided early on only to use the middle one then switch to the other one when the middle wore out.

But just over a year later, the middle bit of the middle USB slot came loose and it stoped working. So I tried the other slot and that had subsequently stopped working too. It charges fine and the blue LED lights work, but I can't get any power out.

As it was out of warranty I hacked the socket end open and carefully disconnected the broken middle USB slot from the mini circuit board in the hope it may work after. But it didn't! So basically bricked it even though the cells have plenty of life left.

See my post above this. Is there anything I can do with my bricked power bank other than throw it in a bonfire for some dangerous lithium fireworks fun? Failing that, is it any use to you?

Bought the 13000 from amazon a few months ago for £15.99. Regularly fluctuates to that price,how is this so hot?

These things usually die for 1 of 2 reasons. Usually, the cause is one faulty cell bricking the entire thing. In this case, you could fairly easily crack it open, get a replacement 18650 battery and swap it for the duff one. You can tell which one is busted by sticking a voltmeter on it after a charge. If its < 3.2v or so then its probably busted. Properly charged should be somewhere around 3.5-3.6v but you might need to check the data sheet for the specific battery you have.

If however it fails because of problem 2 with the charging PCB with all the connectors on it, then most likely its not worth trying to repair it unless you are good at surface mounted soldering / happen to have a reflow oven at your disposal so if that were the case then you might as well keep the batteries and ditch the rest of it.

Thanks for the offer of it being of use to me but I actually have tons of these things, and laptop battery packs that I disassemble and build into larger banks.

Seeing as I think soldering is something to do with a soft boiled egg, and I imagine a reflow oven to be a more efficient version of a fan oven, I will give up now and attempt to salvage some dignity.

You are not far off. A reflow oven is basically just like a regular one except it varies in temp and time. For example 200C for 30 minutes followed by 150C for 10 mins ... etc etc. They are computer controlled normally. You can build one with an arduino and a toaster oven for ~ £50 but yeah why would you unless you were into this stuff

The purpose of one is that you don't sit there soldering thousands of tiny components to a board, you drop some paste on, drop them in the right place and let the reflow oven do the work.

And don't solder eggs. Very bad. Smells worse than melting fingers on the tip...

CCC suggests the 13000 hasn't come down for over a year - not sure if they display Lightning Deals or not?
