Which cars? Genuinely wondering. I thought they just called them power sockets now but still included them as standard anyway as they are often used for SatNav/In car phone chargers etc.

Nothing can beat that price if ur lucky to get the goose. Can u post the product code or barcode?

Never too early. I always used to be the traditional xmas eve shopper buying overpriced unwanted gifts now I put stuff away all year round

Powerbank is only 1500 mAh, great for charging your Nokia 3310.

If you are lucky enough to find these, then buy as many as you can, and take them down to your local food bank. This item is in constant demand at all food banks. You could actually open the box, and just hand over a pile of deoderant & shower gels, and do whatever with the power bar.

Believe me, there are so many folk out there who cant afford to buy lynx, so this is a great item to stock up on and take to your nearest foodbank.

I haven't seen a cigarette lighter in a car in a decade. On new models you need to add it as an option, if they even offer it. However - I'm yet to see a car that doesn't have a 12V socket, I cannot imagine not having one(and if you really don't have one, any car electronic shop will fit you one for 50 quid, there are 12V wires everywhere in the car, you just need to drill a hole to put a socket in).

Iphone 5 has a 1440mAh battery, I don't understand your comment. Even on newer models with larger batteries you will get at least 50% charge which is more than enough for a lot of people.

The iphone 5 was made 4 years ago, it's 4 generations behind now, and I can guarantee that you wont get 1,500 mAh out of this, the stored energy degrades as soon as you stop charging it, so this wont even fully charge a phone that's 4 generations behind, nevermind something newer. Its basically a novelty selling point. If you want a powerbank, get a decent one, Anker are among the best, they make quality powerbanks that will actually charge your devices, and you'll get them at great prices on Amazon. On the other hand, if you want a toy, get this one.

fair enough, i'm not going to disagree with the age of the iphone 5 and Anker being the best. But you WILL be able to get a little bit of juice out of this, and given the price of £1.52, thats cheaper than a can of Lynx anyway.

Fine for the 13 year old boy demographic that still uses Lynx though

Why is a branded deodorant in constant demand at food banks? Isn't the idea that you go to a food bank because you can't afford to feed yourself? In that scenario I'm not sure why anyone would be concerned with deodorant let alone a branded one

Well the idea is that food banks are supposed to help you get out of poverty. It's difficult going to a job interview smelling like a pig. Not sure why it has to be branded though.

Yeah that's true, if you're planning to stink out some school changing rooms anyway, might as well go for this lol!

Personally I prefer not to use the word poverty to describe the plight of people at the bottom end of our society. Poverty is an emotive word that most associate (consciously or sub consciously) with Dickensian like conditions or those of the poor in the third world. I find it worrying when such words are misappropriated, the people of this planet that are truly in poverty would literally give an arm or leg to take the place of the poor in our society. (I had to use an adjective to describe those in real poverty, when really its those in first world poverty who should be qualified with an adjective or find another word).

Anyway back to the point. Aside from those with substance/health issues are there truly people out there in poverty to the extent they need a food bank? I mean they would quite literally starve if the food bank wasn't there? Are there really people who can't get a job because they can't afford deodorant? Unfortunately I get the distinct impression growth of food banks is a self fulfilling, producer and politically driven If you look for the secondary indicators of the level of poverty proclaimed to be rife in our society they aren't there IMO. My wife is a Nurse in the NHS, the hospital she works at serves one of outer Londons deprived boroughs. In over a decade of service, guess how many people she has seen that suffer from malnutrition driven by poverty (i.e. they can't afford to feed themselves)? Zero

NB: Don't take this to mean I don't believe in charity or care for the suffering of others. I'm just extremely cautious as I perceive there is a greater and greater trend of mis-information/self serving propaganda which is diverting charitable funds from where they are truly needed.

My grandmother works in a food bank and yes, you are correct - people going to food banks are not starving themselves. However, she has seen children which are starving, because their parents do drugs or drink or whatever, and the food that the bank provides is greatly helpful. Even if the parent sells some of it for drugs, kids at least get a better chance at eating. As for the job applicants - absolutely. If you are hiring a cashier and there's literally 200 people applying for one position, why would you pick someone who hasn't had a shower and looks scruffy? I know of people who only bounced back from unemployment because someone was kind enough to let them borrow a suit, use their bathroom for a shower and drove them for the interview. It's an incredibly difficult issue and I'm sure these few sentences barely touch on it, but I wouldn't dismiss the food banks as a political instrument, they do help.

​Didn't really know they even existed to be honest but I would wager that for every 1 genuine needy person it helps, it enables 9 complete wastes of space to continue their chosen path in life.
