A device to turn a reasonably inexpensive to run device, ie. a mobile phone with a Li-polymer battery into a disposable battery guzzling planet wrecking cash drainer :-(

If you are the type to forget to charge your battery, why not just buy a second one, (or a charger for work or wherever) it will be smaller and handier to keep to one side than this. Many Nokia phone batteries are dirt cheap anyway.

They also sell the Sony Ericsson version for the same price, they're good for emergencies.

You still have to remember to carry it, with two fresh batteries, so no better in an emergency than any other alternative means of powering a phone!

I keep one in my bag, it's not rocket science.

I bought one of these mnoths ago and it charged my phone a treat

Beware though, alkaline batteries are rubbish in this, i went through 8aa duracell's and the phone wasn't even 50% charged

To get the full cahrge you need the litium aa energizers which are about £6 for 4

best to carry a spare mains charge imo

Nor is keeping your battery charged!

I keep a charged battery, have a car charger, and a USB one too with my laptop, so don't need it, but if you are not the sort of person who makes sure their phone is charged, (and this surely is why these exist at all) then this is not really a solution either, as you have to be sure you have it, AND make sure the batteries are charged, not flattened from the last time you used it!

Its £2. It's intended for emergency use. C'mon. We all forget to charge our battries every now and then. Besides, refering back to a previous comment. I don't think this product is going to damage the environment as much as a second charged battery, and a car charger, and a USB charger.

Got a Sony Ericcson one of these from here for £1.99 a while back...works a treat!

Have some heat

I suppose it makes more sense to just keep a fully charged spare battery in your bag though. It also has the added benefit of being usable instantly, not in 30 minutes.

Hot. I just wish they made iPod ones.

I saw these in Qualitysave but i didnt see the price, they wouldn't have been £21.99 - nothing ever is in that store!:)

Every time you use this thing, it uses very high tech disposables... it will use DRAMATICALLY more resources, (some say 50x as much as rechargeable!) as well as cost more than a spare charger & phone battery in only a couple of uses!
(replacement Lithium Energiser batteries are about £3 for two in most places I have seen them - as has been mentioned, the alkalines don't work so well!)

As it happens, I don't use a second battery, it is pretty much an either/or situation - if I have the charger(s), then I don't really NEED a second battery, although the second battery is the SMALLEST item to carry if you want to keep bags and pockets least full!

This sort of thing is sold cheaply in the first place, to make you dependent on their expensive disposables - they are just skip fodder to me... something you need to remember to take, yet if you can remember to take that, then you probably can remember to charge the thing in the first place, or remember to pack a charger, so you wouldn't need it at all!

Fair enough. But I anticipated it to be kept in the handbag or glove compartment at all times. It's not much bigger than the two batteries it uses. So, I thought it a handy gadget for those of us who forget to charge their phone.
And in an ironic twist; my mobile has just gone flat so I'm off to charge it....at the mains:thumbsup:

got one for sony ericson couple of weeks ago, handy to keep in car

£21.99 is a ridiculous "RRP". People shouldn't use that on here - we're supposed to be consumers fighting back against corporate profiteering, not kow-towing to it by regurgitating marketing rubbish.

You would be surprised how many people come on here who are completely smitten by the magic 85% off and the Was £900 now £11.25 suckers!

For some of the best examples see Argos bed threads! :-(

At the other end of the scale, there are even more suckers for the Refurb "as good as new, but actually it's old tat" line which is 95% of the full new price.

If people are such salesmen's dreams among the readers of this site, how easy a sell are the rest?

Who wants to carry around this thing just in case of an 'emergancy'? If it's a real emergancy, just borrow another phone!

Voted cold as an environment ruining waste of space!

Why would you need to fully charge your battery with it??

Why would you need to fully charge your battery with it??



In fact, these work best (and are intended to be used as such) when charging your phone whilst it still has a charge.

Took one of these to Barcelona the other weekend (with the supplied Lithium AA's), kept my N95 topped up all weekend by topping up after a few bars and not waiting for the phone to die.

Works with Sanyo eneloop batteries as well and for £1.99 you can't grumble.

I can see that there's a use for this at festivals etc. because it cost me £5 for a weak charge last summer. For what it's worth I've got a solar thing that builds up charge ready to transfer to my phone etc. but I'd still be interested in a couple of these for £2 each.

Does anyone know if the Nokia one is the smaller jack type for the newer phones?

Both the smaller and the larger jacks are included.

Much like how the Sony Ericsson version comes with the original Ericsson and SE FastPort connectors.

they had these like this for a while they were £20 quid at other places, just picked up 2 more from preston store and they only had a few left all ericssons. sure they will get more back in, yes both connectors for older and newer n95 8gb types which i have,

I agree.

Anyway, I bought 4 today, one for my N95 and 3 to sell on.

Thanks for posting. I got mine today.
