looks good.. thanks

Great find, thanks

Good deal especially since it comes with lightning and micro USB cables.

Looks good, ordered one, thanks for posting

Good deal as includes cables but there are many alternatives around same price, RAV power units are rock solid, x4 port can be had for 10.99

Me too, is it any better than the Anker one I already have though, mmmm

Does it definitely come with the usb cables??

Does it definitely come with the usb cables??




Answered my own question. it comes with 1 x micro usb and 1 x lightning cable. (You can see that info if you zoom in on the box).

good find op, heat added

cool, thanks

thanks

doesn't say if it supports Quick Charge.

weehawken

does anyone know the mAh capacity for this?



It's a multi-port charging brick, not a battery.

It doesn't. Up to 2.4amps per port, max. (Stated on the side of the box)

Similar, but MUCH less capable. (Just 3.4 amps max across all 3 ports, vs 8 amps across 5 ports on this Philips one).

If you already have a similar Anker one, why would you need/want another one?!

about to go on holiday to spain with 3 teenagers, this should save at least 23 arguments a day about who is using the plug to charge what! Thanks. Reserved one locally.

Because it's a bargain? I'm in the same position, and reserved one too. Hukd has that effect on me, I buy, and I wonder why. (_;)

This is a good price, especially for such a well-regarded brand. Ordered and heat added. Thanks OP.

Possibly because like any device it could fail leaving you looking for all those wall warts that you thought were no longer needed

My first Anker gradually failed but was replaced so nothing to complain about

Ordered one of these

I can't remember ever having a 'wall wart' fail :)....but then again, I've yet to use these multi port, high amp plugs.

(With that said, I am on the lookout for a really compact 2 or 3 port charger with a quick charge port. Figure a quick charge USB battery pack is better than a solar panel when cycle touring)

I guess I have become pretty good at avoiding that urge to buy just because something is a bargain. After all, if it isn't needed, then there isn't much point in buying it.

For those that need such a thing though, it is an excellent price

Yay no stock available to me when I posted, today it says collect after 4PM

Cant resist a bargain unfortunately

Collected mine a couple of hours ago - thanks OP.

Thanks for my HEATwave(s) badge everyone :-*

Any good anyone who's gotten one?

Picked mine up not long ago. It does what it says on the tin but annoyingly I can hear a high pitched whine from it, much like people complain about on Anker units. I'll probably just position it out of the way a bit. The cables it comes with (x1 lightning & x1 micro USB) seem very high quality.
Edited by: "Crana" 12th Jun 2016

Looks the same as the ones that are regularly on Amazon for £5 to £7. So not really a great bargain, but a normal price once you take the cables into consideration.

Looks pretty good. Hopefully less noisy than my RAVpower one (although, personally, I've never been bothered by the noise from the charger itself - only the noise from my other half moaning about the noise from the charger)

Some of you guys comments about this buzzing or whining made me worry.

But I just picked mine up, plugged it in and am charging my phone and it's totally silent.

Unless the whining develops over time, it seems to be totally silent right now.

Actually, it looks a lot like those "horrific USB power supply fault" chargers that you see on Amazon for about a fiver

Would Philips just release a re-badged version of a dangerous charger?

Plug in 5 things and see what happens.

Just ordered one to collect tomorrow. Shame it doesn't support QC but hopefully it charges fast enough.

Got one and the sensor bin I put on hold for 2 weeks now. I'm sure I'll use this charger because I like keeping the original chargers in the bedroom so this will stay in the living room. Some guest who have iPhone will also be happy...

From looking at the video the electrical design of the "horrific USB power supply fault" seemed good and it was most likely a bad batch of transformers that was causing a problem in that specific USB charger.

Do we have any source other than that one Amazon review that says that the 'Icefox' charger does indeed use the same internals as the Swees QY08-05010 that is the "horrific" charger named in the Amazon review?

Does anyone have any thoughts, is this just panicking over nothing, over perhaps unsubstantiated claims?

A lot of these chargers will look the same as they'll use a fairly generic 'template'; doesn't mean the internals are of the same quality. It's very unlikely that Philips would put out a dangerous charger, but it is likely that they modified a typical OEM housing - I mean, how different can a box with five ports on it look anyway?

I've seen charging blocks on eBay that look almost identical to the Anker ones that EE put out and which are far worse quality inside. Ironically the EE ones were actually really decently put together but were recalled by EE, presumably out of paranoia, while far cr**per eBay ones are still offered for sale.

Basically, don't just a piece of electronics by its cover - if we did that, all SD cards would be fake because they all look the same.

You can't really judge a piece of electronics on the basis that it looks similar to another with a flawed design. The best practice - which has always been true of electronics - is to go with a trusted brand.

In regards to quick charging I've got my Nexus 5 plugged in right now and it says "charging rapidly" on the screen, quoting 30 minutes to get it from 50% to 100%, that is handy for a phone that over 2 and a half years old now. I can't hear the whining noise anymore also, wonder if it was just because it's brand new. Weird, anyway I'm happy enough with it.
