Hmmm - no reviews on Amazon, anyone any experience of this brand? 12,000mAh for a fiver seems too good to be true...

Yeah, I'd be scared that it fried my battery, or started a fire. Saving moneys good n all, but I find this dubious. On the other hand, I've definitely been wrong before on quality products and lost out, I'm not voting either way.

I bought this (and posted it here) on the grounds that the seller, Tonwalk, has 98% positive feedback over the last 12 months (900 ratings). I may be one of the 2% but though that with reasonable feedback like that, it was worth a try.

Cool, every chance it's decent, the price is great especially if the product is as described. I just wouldn't use it on my phone. I suppose I could use it for other electricals however. I'm remaining on the fence, I'll keep an eye out for your review

Haha ... I've ordered one of these eBay ones as well as they have it in pink! Thanks Youftbarsteward

Not a single review of it on Youtube. That always makes me suspicious.

Stay away if no reviews. There are no reviews for a reason guinea pigs

Looks identical to one I have that is branded as iHarbort. I've just checked the dimensions and they are the same. Mine says it's 5000mah. I'd be amazed if they've managed to fit double the capacity in the same space.

I got one from B&M that looks the same, That was 4000mah, And not very good

Who is voting this rubbish hot? Just see the Amazon reviews.

It has only enough capacity to half charge a phone. About 2000mAh? Build quality shoddy, sharp edges, connectors sunk...

Spend more, and buy a reputable brand.

I have to say, I got the same one from B&M and it's been great - maybe there are duff ones and good ones?

I think it would be madness to actually bring this into your house. Just pay the money and buy a decent bit of kit. £15 will buy something half decent and won’t risk setting your house on fire. Might as well plug a firework into your phone.

I dont believe the quoted capacity, never in a million years!

Picked this up yesterday for £11 (lightening deal) having purchased one last year for a gift; small, thin, feels quality and built in micro usb which is a big bonus for me.
