Having never heard of EasyAcc, I was somewhat reluctant to buy this portable battery, but I can definitely say that it has been one of my best decisions.
As soon as I received it, I set about testing their claims that it could provide enough electricity to recharge an iPhone 5 to 6 times. I fully charged the battery and then charged my iPhone from empty to full each night and the 4 led indicators are a very simple but nice feature. After 5 charges, the lowest led was the only one lit but battery managed to charge my iPhone to 100% again, so it managed a total of 6 recharges before needed a recharge itself. By any standards, that's damn good. They haven't made exaggerated claims about it, it looks pretty nice too, especially in white, although as with anything in a bright colour, it gets marks on it pretty quickly.
I'd seen portable batteries that were more expensive and had less capacity, but were from a more reputable company. I was going to buy one of them, to be on the safe side, but I've had this one for more than a month now and I haven't had a problem with it. The warranty should also help if anything goes wrong. You can also charge two devices at the same time, which is nice.

I should probably point out that it doesn't come with a plug to charge the battery and although I noticed this before I bought it, those unfamiliar with how these things work might be confused when it arrives. I just used my iPhone plug to use the cord that came with the battery.

Another important thing I should point out is that while I'm extremely happy with the capacity, EasyAcc can't defy physics. The battery takes an eye-watering 10+ hours to fully charge from empty. It took roughly 13 hours for me to charge the battery back to full from empty. It obviously not a design flaw, but just something you need to take into account before buying it. The battery is for use when you don't have access to electricity, but to charge it up, you need access to electricity for more than half a day. Obviously if you only discharge it half way (which is what happened to me every day on my holiday), it takes half the time to charge it back up, so charging over night is more than enough to get it back to full.

It's well worth the £22 I payed and it will probably get cheaper over time. It's also fulfilled by Amazon, so it came the next day despite the delivery estimate being a week from the order date.

I've seen the negative reviews on this battery and all appear to be because of faulty batteries. It's not unusual for there to be faulty products, especially when they involve batteries, so I think and hope that it's just bad luck. Judging by the number of happy customers, I assume almost all of the batteries work perfectly. If there's a problem, I would have though the first thing you should do is return it for a refund or replacement. I don't understand why people won't do this when presented with an obvious faulty item?

Anyway, I'm a very happy customer and I definitely recommend. I hope my review helps somebody make the right decision, and I apologise for any typos. Despite the long review, it only takes me a few minutes...

Can not fault it. Simple to use. Simple design. Simply brilliant. After a day at work, my phone is at approximately 30% power. My partner I then have three hours of train travel. This product will charge both our phones relatively quick. It will charge both our phones fully about 6 times each before it runs out of power. Which hasnt happened yet.

Buy one! No need for mains chargers anymore.

What a superb gadget. When a device is plugged in to charge, it starts automatically; the lights come on briefly to show the charge remaining, then go out to save power (and avoid the annoying glow in the dark). When the unit itself is being charged, the lights remain on to show progress. The leads provided are designed for charging only: there is no data connection; use these in preference to a normal USB cable, for the difference in charging speed can be significant. The high capacity means that I can fully charge my Nexus 7 tablet twice and still have power to spare.

A good purchase, and just what I needed. Tried it out on iPhone, android, tablets, and camera, 2 simultaneously if you want, and works a treat, just as quickly as the mains. Couldn't be easier. I've not used it for long yet but it charged my phone fully without dropping much power so it should be able to do at least 4 full charges without a recharge. Fairly compact and not too heavy so ideal for recharging when out and about. Definitely a good purchase, though a case might be a good next buy, along with the mini version which is ideal for slipping in your pocket.

Bought this as I was going to Glastonbury festival and wanted my iphone to last the 5 days I was attending. Was using it to message, make calls and take photos. Charged it once a day and a friend borrowed it too - still left on the Sunday with three bars of charge to go! Was surprised by how quickly it would charge, after reading some reviews about this being an inconvenience. The practical size meant that it fit in my bum bag for charging on the go, and now I carry it in my handbag for working days.

I used this on a long cycling holiday to keep my iPhone powered as a SatNav. For the first 4 days, this worked really well, and kept my iPhone 6 fully powered for 10 hours a day, and I charged it for about 8 hours a night. On the 5th day, the power button stopped working, so I had to plug it in to turn it on, and make sure I didn't unplug the phones during the day. This was stored in a padded holder with 2 iPhones, so I would have expected it to have been much more durable.

I haven't had this long enough to vouch for its long-term stability, but I can say now that its capacity it incredible. It took about 20 full recharges of my Samsung S4 before I finally ran it dry. I've had similar power packs like this from Maplin before that have failed within days, but this one seems rock solid. I do a lot of European cycle rides over several weeks, so its imperative that I have a decent backup charger, and this seems to have finally filled that role!

I've only had the powerbank a few days now and I think it's brilliant, I dont know how I lived without one before now!
It takes a while to charge up to full the first time as with most batteries, the simple four LED's let you know the progress.
It appears to charge and iphone 6 just as fast as a wall socket would and is just the right size to pop in a phone slot in a bag.
The manufacturers word seems to be true, I've charged an iPhone 6 five times on one charge and one LED is still illuminated, if this hold of charge lasts I shall be super happy.

There are a few niggles I have however;
- Once the device's blue LED's extinguish there is no way to tell if it's on or off, you have to plug it into a device to check.
- I couldn't find anywhere in the instructions in to which port to use (there are two, a 1.5A and 2.1A USB ports) so I took a guess and used the 2.1, it seems fine. It would be nice to know though
- This really is a niggle, I personally don't like that you can't push USB cables all the way in.

I think these are amazing, especially for the price that they are.
Don't hesitate, if you're thinking of buying one, go ahead!

Been able to charge my phone fully 4 times as it is fully charged when it comes out of the box. Will be very useful when out trekking for days at a time

Bought this for Glastonbury 2015, I was able to have a fully working phone the entire Wednesday - Monday (plus then charging it on the train back to London after queuing for way too long...), and I even let my friend have a charge at one point. It survived the heat and the cold and slight moisture. I wasn't expecting something this durable for such a low price! Would absolutely recommend.
