Well done for unearthing this deal.

Just ordered one, apparently 80% off so Orange must be loosing out there to our gain.

These things are brilliant.

Thank you very much I have just ordered one. This gadget will be very useful :-D

MIssed this last time around when Orange discounted it - nabbed one this time, many thanks.

Seems a useful bit of kit.

Heated and bought, thanks!

Nice, anyone know what size this thing is ?

I am a sucker for gadgets!

But this seems so useful. And I checked around - no one even near this price! If we actually get a Summer this year it will be brill to take camping.

Ordered. Thanks OP! H+R

Full Phillips Spec is here ]http//ww…pdf

Bit confusing re the size/weight - they quote Product and Package and Outer carton size/dimensions - take your choice of the first 2!!

Good deal. Been looking for one. Missed it last time:thumbsup:

Looks good, need something like this since I got an android phone!

I think these are a waste of time and money - its cheaper but probably crap - li-polymer have never worked well for me.

The user manual says the battery capacity is only 2000mah, and only 1000mah for your laptop. Most laptop batteries are around 4000mah.

Probably Ok for a smart phone with a 1500mah battery to charge - but I'd never buy li-polymer again...

Technical specifications
• Battery type: Lithium polymer
• Rated input: 19V DC, max. 3200 mA
• Rated output: 5.6V DC, max. 350 mA
16-19V DC, max. 2000 mA
• Battery capacity: 2000 mAh
• Recharging time: 2.5 - 4 hours
• Operating temperature: 0ºC - 45ºC
• Size: 120 x 81 x 25 mm (h x w x d)
• Weight: 282 g

Great deal. Just ordered. Thanks.
I was going to buy a 6 or 9 cell replacement battery for my netbook (current 3cell), but this should provide a different option + allow me to charge/power, ipods, phones etc.
I assume it auto-senses the voltage required???
(edit - just checked the manual on Philips web site p4c.philips.com/cgi…als
16-19v power lead or 5v via the USB port)

TBH I know this is not going to give me many hours of extra power on a netbook, but for the price if it doubles what I currently get I'll be happy.
Having said that the original RRP for this was plain ridiculous. For this price its hot.

HOT, thanks OP just ordered one

Banned

Capacity 1000mAh @ 19 volts.
This is about 1/8th the capacity of a 6-cell Netbook Battery

Thanks PO ordered.
Hope I can make it work with Archos 605 and Dell Mini 9

The Philips site is a tad confusing - but yes I take your point.
The proof will be in the pudding I guess.
It may well be I am wasting my money here, but for £24 quid vs the ridiculous £100+ these were originally selling for I'm prepared to take that gamble.
Plus it charges my kids nanos and all our phones. Even it its a waste of time for my 19v Acer netbook it has plenty of other uses especially if you're stuck in a campsite in the middle of nowhere with no easy access to power. If it shuts my kids up for a little longer its worth every penny..

I tried to buy this,their 20/20 logistics system kept saying purchase had failed ,so I tried 10 times, they attempted to debit my card 10 times but only succeeded 4 times. their system is atrocious and they are not interested in helping when they have messed up.I have had to sort it via my card company.
Just a warning if the system says card problem when you know your card is o/k! BEWARE!

bought last time around, charges ipod touch from dead 4 times , c905 twice and some portable speakers all from one charge and it was still charged, tip,,, go on ebay and buy a psp usb extending cable( yellow tip) about £1.70 del, as this size is not included and fits many items

I hope it's got enough juice to power the O2 Joggler. :thumbsup:

any reviews up on that thing?

Gets 7 out of 10, but that's based on a review price of £124.40

It's expensive and your mileage will vary, but if you spend a lot of time travelling or enjoying the great outdoors, then it might just be more useful than you'd think.

Was just about to say the same. Anyone got any ideas if this works with the joggler?

cold no need for such a device

My advice is to steer clear of this product....it's useless! Bought a few months ago when there was a deal on, used for iphone and a samsung nc10. Charges the iphone once then unit itself needs recharging! for the netbook its pointless, lasts for a few minutes only!:whistling:

Sounds like your nebook runs on nitrous!

ordered heat added.

I use, as do some of my buddies, the Ted Baker charger you can find on ebay for £8 to £15......they charge phones/ipods/radios etc well, and can run small dvd and archos players for a short time aswell.

EIther way this is a decent deal going by RRP etc

I got one last time around. It is fantastic, Got 2.5 hours on my Dell D420 (I think that is the model number). Charged my mobile at the same time too!!

Handy to have - purchased. Thanks for posting.

If you're just buying this to charge your phone then it would be so much better, smaller and cheaper to buy 4x spare batteries for your phone, fully charge them all and then get so much more power available instantly after swapping the battery.

Then if you change phone you have to do it again, and you can't do that if you have an iPhone

Perfect for when I go camping, charge the iphone and missus phone, along with portable x mini speaker and even the sat nav?

That's what's so good about this, the flexibility. Off on a trip, take this, and any gadget with a USB charger needs power can use it.

I got one of these last time round. I can charge my iphone 4 times. I think you may have a faulty unit!

Tbh I think £24 is about the right price for this, the market price seen elsewhere of ~£100 is simply ridiculous.

The "up to 60 hours" claim is very misleading; it'll power a typical laptop up to 1 hour, and a typical netbook up to 2 hours. Smaller devices will obviously be much nearer their claim, but who would lug around a battery ~10 times the weight of their phone just to extend the battery life?! Take a wall charger, or a car charger, or a 2nd battery!

I'm not going to be buying as it seems to me somewhat perverse to use 1 battery to recharge another.

Fair enough, that's the one scenario where it'd be handy - assuming the campsite doesn't provide any power facilities, and you arn't taking a car.

I have an Archos 10 Netbook and have just bought this in the hope that it will provide a backup when the power dies. My netbook is a 3 cell - whatever that means ?!

Don't know how heavy it is, how long it will last or even if a cable will fit but at £24 is worth a punt. How they got to an RRP over £100 I will never know.


I agree it would be annoying to lug this around to power an mp3 player or a mobile phone, even an iPhone.


Also I wonder if this slowly "discharges" itself if it does not get used or retains the power for a long time.

That's true but if you have a contract you're likely going to stay with the same phone for ~18 months anyway and then you can sell the spares with the phone when you sell it.

I think this thing is great if it works as desired but I'll be doing the West Highland Way in August and I would definitely rather take a couple of spare batteries for instant power than one of these. A lot more compact and I don't need to wait for it to charge and it will cost £10 for 2 spares.

I have one of these from the last time orange slashed the prices it was 90% then. But still its a great deal and it comes in VERY useful
