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 use it to charge smartphones, MP3 players, tablets and other devices with a USB cable. The power bank itself is charged up through USB or solar power and is compact in design, allowing you to carry it around with you.

How does it connect to my device?
This power bank is built-in to a smartphone case which will fit the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s. It fits onto your iPhone, connecting directly into the phone’s lightning connector to recharge. This will give a power boost and life-extension to your iPhone whenever you need it.

Is it rechargeable?
This power bank contains a polymer lithium-ion battery which can be recharged from the mains in under 2.5 hours. The power bank also has a built-in solar panel to top up your power bank so that it will last even longer. Weighing just 89g, its compact design allows your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s to fit snugly inside this case without becoming bulky and cumbersome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes my iPhone worthwhile I purchased this for a holiday as I was sure the iPhone battery would not last a day of usage and I was not sure when I would be able to charge it. The battery pack is fantastic and well recommended. I have no idea how well the solar panel works as I have no tested it properly. Unfortunately the jack extender is faulty and only plays mono unless held in a specific position. I would have returned the item but only found this out later when I came to use it.

Will this item be allowed on planes in hand luggage? I know some types of batteries are not allowed, and don’t want to have to leave it at check-in!

Asked by: JulesCrewe
This would need to be checked with the airline you are flying with as they may change their restrictions on what can and can't be took into the cabin of a plane and also the hold luggage.

Can you charge both at the same time as a single unit from the mains, or do you have to seperate and charge individually?

Asked by: Gray1234
You can charge the phone through the battery pack, once full the charging current should charge the battery pack itself while keeping the phone topped up at the same time.
