Product Description

This is a slim battery pack which uses a 10200mAh rechargeable battery to power your portable gadgets and charge them at the same time. It can be plugged into the power socket just like a normal power adaptor. It has almost 2.5x higher capacity than our Standard USB Battery, and would be suitable for dramatically increasing runtime when away from a power source.

A fast charge micro USB cable is built in to save space, this can be used to charge the pack from any USB socket such as a computer or iPhone charger, and also to charge your device from the pack. You can also use the USB cable provided with your device. This cable works on the same principle as PortaPow 'fast charge' cables as sold separately so will also allow you to charge your Android/Windows/Backberry from any other PC/TV/Mains/Car USB socket at high speed without going into data transfer mode.

It is compatible with virtually every device which charges from a computer or a 5V mains charger - check the mains charger supplied with your device to see if it is 5V. A micro USB cable is included, if your device uses a different shape connector you can use the cable supplied with your device. Compatibility includes the latest iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets, Google Nexus, HTC One, Nokia Lumia, Sony Xperia, Backberry Z10 / Q10, Motorola X / Droid, LG Optimus etc, as well as bluetooth headsets, Raspberry Pi, portable speakers, and many other gadgets.

The pack is not compatible with Apple iPods or older Samsung Galaxy Tab models which use a wide shape connector since these do not charge from universal chargers. PortaPow USB Adaptors are available separately to solve these issues.

The pack supports trickle charging making it useful for charging from a solar panel, and can output power at the same time as being charged.

 

How does it work?

Use the USB cable supplied to charge the battery pack from a USB socket or micro USB charger such as a computer, smartphone charger, mains USB chargerscar USB chargers, or our Solar USB Charger. Then connect your device to the battery pack using the same cable, push the button to activate the pack and charge it up where ever you are. Your device (including satnavs such as the Garmin Edge) can still be used as normal during charging. Two devices can be charged at the same time.



How much battery life will it provide?

The pack can fully charge a typical smartphone or satnav 3-5 times. Tablets can be charged 0.75-1.5x depending on the model.

 

 

Which devices does it charge?

Since the pack features USB sockets, it can charge the thousands of devices which be charged or powered over USB, just use the USB cable supplied with your iPhone, iPad, etc. The built in Micro USB cable works with most non-Apple phones and many other devices. Check the picture at the top of this page to see if your device's charger matches the shape of the micro USB connector.

Our 1m Fast Charge Cable Mini USB + Micro USB + Apple connectors is available as an optional extra at half the usual price, select the option at the top of this page. Click here for more details.

  1. Good size, good functionality

    Posted by Jakob on 22nd Aug 2015

    One of the better ones i have bought, the same size as my phone, so it fits perfectly behind the phone and you carry it with easy together with phone and the supplied mini-cable. Great product

  2. Excellend product, excellent customer service

    Posted by Joe on 18th Aug 2015

    This battery kept me going on a two week cycling holiday - being charged by my solar panel by day, and charging my devices in the evenings. I had cause to contact customer services - their response was immediate!

  3. Very good product

    Posted by o.b. on 15th Jul 2015

    Fast recharge
    easy to connect
    flexible cable
    a bit to heavy

  4. Great capacity, not for the pocket

    Posted by John on 7th Jul 2015

    This is a fabulous product if you are a heavy user of your smartphone and want to be assured you won't run out of power. It weighs roughly the same as a smartphone and case, so you would definitely know it was in your pocket. I tend to throw mine in my work bag and forget about it.
    The included cable means you don't have to carry a separate lead, but a longer cable would make it easier to re-charge at home, otherwise you need to find something to rest it on to avoid straining the cable. It's sometimes a bit fiddly to put the included cable back into place, but I like it and wouldn't change the design.
    The first charge took overnight, but once it is full it packs plenty of power and I certainly believe the claims it will provide four full charges (I tend to top it up before it runs out). So it would be exceptionally useful on camping trips, etc.
    My conclusion is that it's great value for money, packs a powerful charge, but don't expect to slip it in your pocket.

  5. Impressed

    Posted by John E on 23rd Jun 2015

    A very good piece of equipment which is sturdy, yet light and portable. It charges my phone up faster than mains electricity using the 2.4A USB port

  6. AMAZING PRODUCT AT AN AMAZING PRICE, BEATS ALL COMPETITORS!!!

    Posted by V Tailor on 18th May 2015

    I have been buying and recommending PortaPower devices for years. This is the latest in their line of universal portable USB power supplies, and after a year of use is still the best I have purchased.

    I have many high and low power devices and the 2 ports on the device provide ideal wattage output for my tablets, phones and smartwear.

    I did have a small fault with my grey cable a few months from my purchase, but after a quick email I received the the immediate option for a full replacement, which was completed in a week. Fantastic customer service.

    I will continue to recommend this product and the PortaPower service.

  7. Good value works perfectly

    Posted by Bill Northcott on 8th May 2015

    What more is there to say.
    I hiked this around some 130km of trekking in Nepal to keep camera, phone, iPad etc charged between the rare points of power availability. It never disappointed.

  8. Great Design

    Posted by Roy MacDonald on 1st May 2015

    Excellent, lots of power, will charge small and not so small devices with ease. Superb design,

  9. Works as described!

    Posted by Anonymous User on 16th Apr 2015

    It just works as it should, what more can you say.

  10. No overcharge.

    Posted by Stephen Bissex on 26th Mar 2015

    Simply switches off fully as opposed to continuing to trickle charge devices big or small,so no worries on that score.I use it all the time either whilst itself being charged or by it's stored energy - Brilliant!
