What is a power bank?
A power bank is a device with an internal battery that will keep your portable devices charged while you are on the go. You can charge smartphones, MP3 players, tablets and other devices. This is perfect if you are out walking, using your phone as a GPS device and need to recharge your battery to stop you getting lost. It is charged up through USB power and this particular model can also utilise the sun to charge its internal battery.

How does it connect to my device?
The Brunton Ember comes with a 3-in-1 cable which allows you to plug in to a variety of devices. The cable will plug into devices with a micro USB socket, such as smartphones, tablets and some MP3 players. It will also charge older iPhones, iPods and iPads with the Apple 30-pin connector, and newer Apple devices via the Lightning connector. You can plug many other USB charging cables into the power bank, meaning you have a plethora of charging options within this one device.

How long will it charge for?
This particular power bank will fully charge your smartphone in approximately three hours and the internal battery only takes three hours to charge (through a mains plug). While not in use, the device has a long shelf life without needing to be fully recharged and can be recharged up to 1,000 times. This gives you a long lasting device that is essential for the walking enthusiast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brunton Ember...does what it's supposed to! There is little to fault of this handy unit as it has so few functions to go wrong with! It's supplied with a USB cable that can be used to charge your gear as well as itself, but if all you have is the daylight, it will automatically charge through the built in solar panel. The idea that it has a no quibble guarantee enhances the knowledge that it is a go anywhere source of power. The price puts it very good value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indispensable I can never be without this fantastic battery pack; it does exactly as it is supposed to and has helped me out on so many occasions, particularly when travelling/on holiday. Even the 3-in-1 charger cable supplied is extremely useful in the house and car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal - has proved a lifesaver This little unit is great. There were some cheaper options but I always believe you get what you pay for and this one is a lot better than the cheaper ones. Not sure what I have done without this up to now. Cable is great and U-proof guarantee is second to none.

When fully charged from the mains, how many times will it be able to charge your average smartphone (or more specifically a Samsung S5).

Asked by: Magic71
This item has a capacity of 2800mAh - A quick internet search shows the S5 capacity as 2,800 mAh so this would charge the item once.
