Reduced to clear, down to £5 in Robert Dyas instore (Didcot branch in this case). No more left in the store there on the shop floor I'm afraid, might be worth calling ahead to any branch unless you're passing. They were on the display with all of the batteries and the Robert Dyas product number is 154663.

It's a portable USB charger that claims to give up to 3hrs to your smartphone in extra talk time.

Currently £14.08 on Amazon - amazon.co.uk/Dur…TG4

It's an instore deal. It seems to have set the web address to robertdyas.com rather than the correct .co.uk version. Not sure I even remember entering that as it's an instore deal. The .com address seems to be an advertising page. I'll ask a mod to update. Thanks.

Found another in a different store, but it was out the back so staff had to have a look. Certainly mention of other stores having stock when they were checking their stock system, Swindon and Farnborough mentioned in particular. I'd still say ring ahead and get them to check the stock item.

Just picked up last 5 of the 5 hour - 1800mAh from Wilko @ £2 each - On clearance shelf.

Which store was that out of interest and do you have a Wilko product number? Thanks.

I have asked for this once more (via the HUKD contact form again) as it's still the incorrect link.

It's been reduced in more than one place which can be indicative of something that craps out after a while or doesn't work properly.

It`s spam

Or maybe being end of lifed / phased out? Not sure. Are there other stores you know of apart from the mention of Wilkos above where they've been heavily reduced?

Cramlington - non left there though. Worth checking other stores. Sorry haven't got the product number.

I have one they are pretty neat. Mini usb to charge and the usb at the other end to power whatever.

There are some still to be had, picked up the last one in the Staines store this morning, ( in a box under under the battery display) marked up at £8 clearance, but scanned at £5. So worth checking if you are passing a store and asking the staff if they have any squirrelled away.

Must have been half asleep when I wrote the comment as I don't really remember commenting or where else I saw it reduced. Maybe I though it was another deal I don't know haha.

Peaked my interest so I went on fleabay and bought a brand new one for £4.50 delivered.

Do you have a link please?

The ones I can see on the bay for around the £4.25- 4.50 mark are the Duracell Accu pocket type, which is similar in style to the Duralock one listed here, but there is no mAh rating visible on the packaging, so can't say for sure if they are the same thing or not. The cheapest Duralock (1150mAh) one I can see on the bay, the same as listed here is £8.95.

That's why I'm interested to see what brokenarrow has actually purchased, was thinking it's not the same model.

i have used this product it was ok bought in asda £3 when they did a clearance.

I tested mine today with my Nexus 4. With the battery in the Nexus 4 completely run down, leaving it powered off the fully charged Duracell unit took the Nexus 4 back up to 56% in sometime between 40 minutes and an hours (I wasn't watching the full time!). That was pretty much what I was expecting based on the capacity of the two devices.
