Speaks for itself. Had quite a few in my local, for Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Motorola. Couldn't see any for Samsung though. Comes with two lithium AA batteries, which cost more than £1.99 as it is.

Cracking deal! heated

They had these in the Wrexham store a few weeks ago, we bought the 3 we needed for the various phones in our house and just keep the adaptors together with one battery charger.
Excellent deal and they charge a treat.

Not quite sure what you're meaning here - if for emergency use I can understand, but it will cost approximately a hundred times more to charge your phone this way than by plugging it into the mains...

Why would you?

Because you haven't got access to the mains, I presume.

Excellent deal, shame no shops near me. I'm sure people will buy these and sell them on ebay though! Out of interest would the mini usb charger (with an adapter to the right size) charge an ipod touch/iphone?

The RRP is a ridiculous price.

I've heard that iPods can be touchy (ahem) about what you use to charge them.

Well then, take away the mains and there isn't much else you're left with. If you're living in a cave and don't have any access to mains electricity, it's pretty unlikely you'll have a mobile phone either.

Get outside and enjoy the fresh air fella, you'll find there's plenty of places without electricity where cave dwelling is not deemed compulsary.

Perhaps that's why I posted the deal?

People just don't appreciate subtle sarcasm anymore. Soon to be a lost artform.

sarcasm a dying art.. never! Sorry dude, had I not been out me tree, and or noticed that you'd posted the deal, then I don't think I would have made the comment. :oops:

Bought one btw, thanks!

Someone's obviously forgotton to engage their brain before typing. :roll:

I give up. I don't like stating the obvious and the simple, I prefer to be awkward and aloof. However, yes pibpob, of course it would cost hundreds of times more to charge your phone this way instead of using the mains. But if you were home or at work or anywhere else that you had mains electricity and a charger you wouldn't use this would you? And again, yes, in an emergency, or out and about, you would. It's so very obviously obvious it astounds me that anyone would even ask of this, so I respond in dumbfounded sarcasm which the same people evidently just don't get.

Excellent find, bought 3 today, no Nokia, but I have adaptor from other items, thanks

Motorola Comes with usb, which may become universal standard anyway.

Don't leave the AA's in unused, there is some current drain even when not connected, I calculate 3 months to deplete unused alkaline AA's at 1ma drain, probably around 1 year for lithiums.
