I bought a couple of EC technology chargers a couple of months ago when that £10 off any order deal was on. They're both appear to be decent quality, so I guess this one will be the same.

got an email from them today informing me of a new deal.

Use code PO7EUEMP to get £10 off making this £19.99

assuming that isn't a typo that's one big battery!

Original Poster

not a typo! it's a big one!!

has 3 charging ports ... 2.4A, 2A and 1A

lots of 5 star reviews on Amazon from 'Verified Purchases'

Ummm , a bit weird but.... Could these be linked in series?

I thought this was a pretty good deal, but by the looks of the rating not so much. Any comments from those voting it down?

these are very good I have two of these and 6 others and these are the best but big.

I wonder how much sand this has in it...

i'm a bit sceptical on the capacity. My power gorilla is 21000mah and over twice the physical size of this, but then i suppose the PG can output multiple voltages so has extra electronics.

Extremely dubious about the review stating they charged an iPad 3rd gen (11,666mah) 2 times AND an iPhone 5s(1560mah) 5-6 times on one charge and still having 3 bars left..... amazon.co.uk/rev…ics

free dual car charger too according to listing

Tried and adding both codes doesn't work, it just takes off the £10

I have a number of these devices including this one, unlike some ebay stuff this is actually very good and has the stated capacity.

See a review here youtube.com/wat…b9o

Cant thank you enough, code worked a treat, just ordered. Happy chappie8)

I'm not too well informed when it comes to batteries, can anyone tell me if the output on this is enough to sustain a 3DS battery while its in use, like it will charge the battery fast enough that the 3DS wont die.

Cheers for anyone that can help

Just bought one. Hope it lives up to its specs!
So useful.

How does this compare to the Anker E6 (20,800mAh)?

This gorilla multiple voltage charger thingy you're referring to... would it work on note 4 to utilize the fast charge feature...?
I believe the fast charge feature uses a higher voltage to charge faster.

Usually faster charging is down to the port being able to output a higher current, not voltage. I'm pretty sure a USB cable should never exceed 5 volts.

Maybe you just need a different cable, or, some chargers have special circuitry to tell the phone that it can output the higher current, which then enables the fast charging on the phone. ( auto sensing)

Otherwise, if a phone tries to draw too much current it will damage/overheat the charger.

Samsung probably want you to buy their specific charger&cable.
Usually you can bypass this if you have rooted your phone and flashed a different rom/app to manually say its OK to fast charge.


Also, which port on this power pack would I have to use to charge my Galaxy Note 3?

I got one of these for Christmas for £29.99. I have so far only used one full charge and to be honest im not convinced i got 22440mah out of it so im doing to do some more testing.

I would recommend a 5v 2a charger which will charge this in about 11 hours. Also if your looking for a case i have found the best thing is a 3ds XL case (yes its quite big).

It does not charge the older style PS Vita but i have been able to charge the new slim version Vita with it. Hope this helps someone.

I got one of these couple of months ago for £13.99, the 22400mah model. I've charged my iPad, iPhone and S5 off one charge numerous times and the built in torch is quite handy in the car at night. Highly recommend!

This is an amazing deal! Hot.. Quality product with actual stated capacity!

Pass through charging?

These are excellent. Used one over the summer for festivals, must have charged my S4 4 or 5 times at least and still have plenty of charge left when I got home.

I presume this can't be used on an LG G2?

I have one of these. Very useful indeed. Great price.

great price

Not meaning to discourage you, but I've charged a 3DS XL through a similar portable charger and it caused dead pixels on the top screen within one hour of usage. I'm sure other people do the same with no problem, but it's completely put me off trying again.

Great price and quality product.

Why wouldn't it? I've never seen an android phone that doesn't charge over USB (5V). Even if you charge a phone from a high current port, the phone will only draw what it needs.

My G2 draws a max of 1.6A from my 2A tablet charger, for example.

A USB charge doctor is a handy thing to have, you can get them for about £1 and they'll display Voltage and current being drawn. Pay a fiver and you can get a more fancy OLED model with graphical display that will give you all sorts of measurements.

I use a couple of these (ebay Item 261592576860) and they're reasonably accurate.

Some external battery don't work with it. The main one being, Anker.

Very good deal! Heat!

Any idea if this works with the OnePlusOne?

I own this and a few anker ones, this is not as sleek or pretty but it lasts a lot longer, easily get 5+ charges of my s4 from it. I would recommend it

Wow great deal, just bought! Thanks

Only 2 left after I bought one. Too good to pass up, thanks.

Thanks for the tip, I've bought one of each. Love me a gadget!

Does it actually allow 22440mAh to be used as stated or is its actual capacity lower?

Have some heat - and spook, I was actually pricing these up for my Hudls last night. I already have one of the LED USB Doctors and just bought an OLED one for £2.98 on the bay...
These power banks are ridiculously cheap as well - the majority use the 18650 cells and you can actually buy a DIY version as well (you buy a case @ around £4 and fit your own batteries, depending on capacity, starting @ £1, they come in 1 to 6 cell sizes as well)

Judging purely by the physical size of this one it looks like it uses 6 x 18650 cells and at 22440mAh stated capacity the maths works out @ 6 x 3740mAh cells. However, 18650 cells are rated @ 3.7v and so the circuit must boost the voltage to 5v. How efficient it does this depends on the circuit used, typically you would see a 10% loss of the original battery. I very much doubt that loss has been included in the quoted capacity here so I would suggest the real world capacity is at the very least 10% less than 22440mAh. Beware higher capacity cells, whilst they do exist, are a very rare find on the 'Bay with the genuine capacity...

I know this is HotUKDeals, however I felt it relevant to share these details, please do your own research and draw your own conclusions (i.e don't shoot the messenger!)...

Very tempting indeed
