Pic shows AA?

Great for charging your Nokia festival phone. If you have a smartphone, don't even bother.

I know it's only £1, but the reviews on Amazon say it's completely useless

Thats probably why they've ended up in Poundland but saying that , if this is 1150mAh model its got good reviews at Tesco Direct and they are £22.99.

It's not on their website?c

Should be good for say Sandisk music players.

I got one a couple of weeks ago. No use for my phone - waste of a pound. Bought a decent power bank (4000 mAh) from tesco for £12.50. I think Home Bargains had some around that price too, never checked the power on them though. This should be cold - junk that's no use for anything.

A lot of smart phones require 2A chargers to charge at a reasonable speed.
I'm not sure what the rating on this one is, but all the cheap ones I see are about 1A.

Then there is the other question, do you really want to plug your expensive smart phone into a £1 charger of unknown quality ?

People are expecting the wrong things from this, this isn't meant to be a portable power bank. It's just for getting your phone a little bit of charge to be up and running again. From the pic it looks like you put an AA battery in there (I'm not confusing it with the AA branding in the pic). Rechargeable AAs have around 1500-2000mAh but that's at 1.5V. Once it's scaled up to 5V and taking into account the inefficiencies, it will give an iPhone about 30% charge. It's an emergency charger people, it shouldn't be compared to a portable power bank especially at £1. I could be completely wrong but I'm just gauging this from the picture and its similarity to the one I had.

This is too good for 1£, Imagine you are out of home and no charing point and battery completely deal or you had accident or running late to work, or pickup kids from school, inform somebody something urgent or need to send text or talk for 5 min only, Think like a lifesaver even if it gives you 5 of talk time still its worth,

Don't even bother, they are utterly rubbish

I bought the same thing a couple of years ago for a few more pounds. Completely useless, sadly smartphones will take no charge from this at all.

Do they do them in rib ticklers?
