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 compact power bank has a single USB socket to connect directly to your smartphone or tablet using your existing USB cable. This will give a power boost and life-extension to your device whenever you need it. The power bank is universally compatible with portable devices - making this the ultimate backup source.

Is it rechargeable?
This power bank contains a lithium polymer battery which can be recharged in under eight hours. Weighing only 200g, its compact design measures 115mm by 64mm by 15.4mm allowing you to carry this power bank around in your pocket or backpack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked fine until the cable gave out Worked fine for a few months, but the bespoke charging cable (which isn't stocked separately) looks like it's broken internally. _If_ you can manage to bend it at just the right angle, you might be lucky and get it to charge (either to charge your device, or to take charge from a charger), but as soon as you let go, the connection is broken. Result: it's a shiny brick. Given that it's supposed to be a portable device, and is going to be kept and used 'on the move', you'd have thought that the cable would have been more resilient, or at least that a replacement would be readily available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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..

Does it only start charging your phone once the bank reaches 100%? That is the case for me. Is my one faulty?

Asked by: Ibby
This should charge a connected device as long as the bank has enough stored power, not just at 100%, however it may not pass through power when charging the bank itself.
