OXA® 10000mAh Power Bank USB External Battery Back&hellip by OXA
5.0 out of 5 stars Small box of tricks, 19 July 2014
A highly portable power bank (measuring only about 10 x 7 x 2 cm) that contains sufficient capacity at 7,800mAh to replenish several spent devices before itself needing a recharge. Two USB outputs provide 1A or (faster) 2A charging options, which broadly charge small and large devices via myriad supplied connectors and one lead. A small instruction leaflet is included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Travel in comfort, 13 July 2014
A very supportive cushion that facilitates rest on long journeys and other situations where I sometimes struggle to be comfortable.

The cushion is a memory foam type that springs back to its original shape after use and feels of sufficient quality to last for several years. It’s dense and yet incredibly soft, offering just the right combination of comfort and support. The product listing states that the cushion has been aired prior to shipping and I certainly could not detect any odours in use.

The cushion cover (made of polyester cotton) has a pleasant, soft texture that doesn’t rub against the neck and is crucially removable (zip at the rear) so it can be machine… Read more
