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 charge smartphones, MP3 players, tablets and other devices. It is charged up through USB 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 fitted with two USB sockets to allow you to recharge multiple devices at the same time. One USB allows for high powered devices such as tablets to be recharged more quickly than the other USB socket. The power bank is universally compatible with portable devices such as smartphones, tablets and gaming accessories. You can connect your device directly to the power bank through a standard USB cable.

Is it rechargeable?
The power bank contains a lithium polymer battery which can be recharged in between six and eight hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The overview says up to 20 hours extra talk time on iphone. The iphone has 8 hour talk time on it's own. I found I could charge the iphone from low to full charge twice, plus a charge to 59 percent. So approximately two and a half times from low charge. Just as would be expected according to the extra talk time stated. Good size, not too big (check size in specifications) and has ample capacity for extended periods away from mains or 12v chargers. Does not come with an iphone lead, just use your own. Very good product, recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After power cuts at Xmas I had to get power for my mobile in the country. This device is brilliant. I keep it fully charged and you can power two phones from 2 USB ports out at the same time. You can also charge the phones and the pack all at the same time when there is mains. I've just had to use it on an emergency hospital admission. Absolutely indispensable. Definitely a must have for most of us.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from it will do Just bought this product as the website stated the output on the USB port was "Output Voltage and Current: 5 V 2.1 A ". However when I got home the packaging says "Dual 5V / 1A (real output)" Also the website states charging cycles of "Number of Charging Life Cycles: 1000 times ", however the packaging only say's 500 times" So Maplin, which one is correct?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price it is amazing, have been running and recording using this with a Zoom h4n audio recorder for the last 7 and a half hours and the display on the powerpack is still showing a 50% charge. Whats not to like :-) Buy one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs certain power draw to remain on I bought this to power a Track IR headset, and works fine - for 10 seconds at a time! When connected to my Note 3, it stays on and charges it up nicely. As long as I keep the phone charging, it stays on and powers the headset on the other port as well. But it just keeps switching off when just the headset is connected. I guess the headset draws too little power, and so the powerbank thinks nothing is connected. Therefore, to conserve energy (generally a good idea), it switches itself off. I'll be taking this back as there is no mention of a minimum power draw on this website or packaging. A shame, because for other, more common uses, this looks like it would be great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from product quality not to usual maplin standards i bought this in october, and had problems charging it, the cable that comes with it packed up, now one of the LED`s has failed, i suspect due to my arch enemy lead free solder. my wife to be has simular issues with hers, one min it says fully chaqrged next it says one bar, but after tapping it it goes back to full juice. we would take them back, but because the casing is scratched and silver paint wearing off, i doubt they would accept them, silver paint wears off easy too.

My power bank will only stay on if it is plugged into my laptop. I am not able to use it to charge my phone or any other device unless it is plugged into my laptop. It turns on and then turns right back off. Has anyone else had this problem? 

Asked by: nikkyd
This is a fault with the item and needs to be exchanged. This can be done in your local Maplin store with your proof of purchase, as long as the item is within its 12 month warranty .
