  • Has worked brilliantly and still does, but fell apart and is now held together with gaffer tape, still works but not sure how long for!

  • Very handy item. Has pulled me out of the mire on numerous occasions. I'm a market trader and use Paypal Here for CC transactions. A couple of times I forgot to charge the reader and if it wasn't for the power pack I'd have lost the sale..

  • Bought this at the last minute for a long haul flight, so very pleased it came pre-charged. Getting something to actually charge stumped me for a moment, but then I read the manual (!) and there is an 'On' button, which is unusual for a battery pack like this one. Watched videos on my iPod for the whole flight, then used it to charge HTC Desire phone during a conference before I had a chance to recharge - the unit still had plenty of power to spare. In terms of mAh:price, this unit has the best ratio I have found yet. The only odd thing is that to complement the absolutely standard USB power output socket, it has a completely non-standard (non-USB) power input socket - so be careful not to lose the (very short) supplied cable. Otherwise, excellent.

  • Worked well with a Nexus and S3 phone over a long weekend away from home. Just tested it with a Raspberry Pi and it ran for 10h 37m 14s until drained.

  • I purchased two of these for charging an iPad and an iPhone while on trips away. While they came 70% charged I read and followed the instructions and charged the devices according to the instructions. Neither battery pack will hold any charge and when disconnected from the mains charger at the point of full charge indicated you'll find within seconds its lost all the charge. Connect it to an iPad and within 17 seconds its flat and and the iPad is indicating 'Not Charging' at best there's a dim glow from the 30% charge indicator LED. Reconnect it to the charger and within 15 minutes its indicating its fully charged. Disconnect it for half an hour and to no surprise its flat. If you buy one of these keep the receipt and the box.

  • Purchased this last week to charge my iPad2, HTC Sensation and Blackberry. Seemed like a good purchase given the price and relatively high capacity. Also looked decent and was light weight. In reality, the item was either unfit for purpose or defective. The unit came with a high level of charge in the lithium ion battery but the unit would not reliably supply charge to any of my devices. Primary issue was the micro USB connector, which did not operate correctly. Unless held with some pressure at a particular angle in to the power socket of the device you want to charge, no current passed from battery to device. This rendered the power bank total unusable. Took it back to a local Maplin store where they tested it at the cash till on a phone of identical model to my own. The same issue occurred. Maplin rep refunded my money on the spot and apologised for inconvenience. I bought a New 11,000mAh charger instead and it works brilliantly.

  • I am very pleased with it's performance in keeping our phones and tablets charged over a long weekend without having to look for a mains outlet.

  • It took me a while to work out why it didn't come with apple connectors, you already have the cable on your apple charger so take it off the plug and plug into booster, great item

  • Claims to be 6000 mah but I have done testing a few times on my device and it dies after it releases around 2000 mah of power

    Hi there we purchased the Lithium Ion 6000mAh Portable Power Bank a while ago, and my daughter misplaced the charging cables that came with it, can you advise if we can replace these and could you tell me what I would need to buy?

    I’m afraid we don’t sell them separately unfortunately , Our customer services may be able to locate a spare cable , It’s a long shot but sometimes they have spares cable from returned items 0333 400 9500.

    The spec & instructions specify that this device must be charged using a 2A USB adapter, however this isn't supplied nor did the Salesperson in the shop advise of this or suggest one as an add-on item; I obviously have a mains USB adapter for my phone, however on investigation this is likely to be 5A, not 2A, so I'm concerned about using it - please advise

    The one for your phone would be suitable, your phone will likely take 5V not 5A as it is not possible to get 5A from a USB socket, most mobile phones use 5V and between 1A and 2.1A 1A would charge this device it would just take twice as long.
