  • iPad connections

    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

  • Very good.

    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.

  • Useless

    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.

  • Smart little device, but...

    Bought as a travel/emergency charger for a Samsung smartphone and iPod Touch 4th Generation. First impression was that it is a smart looking little device that could be mistaken for a small portable hard drive. The device comes ~75% charged, enough to charge a Samsung SIII Mini twice and top up a Kindle Fire HD so it's ideal if you've forgotten to pack your charger. My only problem is that, for a product that is described as being "ideal for powering and charging iPod, iPhone, iPad," it doesn't actually come with either style Apple connector. Adaptors are available pretty cheaply from elsewhere, but I would expect the relevant connector given the blurb on this page. Good device though.

    Really useful, but spent ages trying to work out how to get this battery to charge my iphone so thanks to the reviewer who mentioned the 'on' switch!!

  • 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..

    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.
