This review is from: TeckNet® POWER BANK Mini 3000mAh USB External Battery Pack, Mobile Phone Portable Battery Charger- Ultra-Compact "Lipstick" Size Portable Charger for iPhone 5 4S 4 3GS, iPod (Lighting Cable not Provided for iPhone 5) / Samsung Galaxy S4 S3 I9300, S II I9100, I9000, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note / HTC: One Series, Sensation G14 XE XL, Radar, EVO, Inspire 4G, Vivid 4G, Incredible 2, Rezound, Thunderbolt / Motorola Triumph, Droid / LG Optimus / Nokia N9 Lumia / Blackberry Z10 / Sony Xperia Z - Black (Electronics)
I didn't realise when I ordered this emergency charger it was also a better than average torch. Sometimes LED torches can be a bit on the dim side but not this one. It has a far more powerful beam than my much bigger conventional torch. It's a bit fiddly to turn the torch function on and off (I could do without the flashing mode) and on one occasion it accidentally got turned on in the bottom of my bag.

So far as its primary purpose of being an emergency charger, it gets my Samsung Galaxy S3 from flat up to 90% charge in less time (I think) than my mains charger, even with the phone turned on and in use. I say "I think" because I've not actually timed it but subjectively it seems fast.

The few times I have charged it, it ran out of juice at the early 90% charged mark - ie. it didn't quite have enough capacity to get my phone up to 100% but 90% was good enough for my purposes. Each time, it was several days after charging the Power Bank before I used it to charge my phone so, in fairness, some charge could have leaked away. It is inherent in this type of battery that they lose charge over time (the instructions say to recharge the Power Bank if not used for several weeks). Also, I was charging the phone whilst still using it. I wouldn't be surprised if it could achieve 100% if a) the Power Bank was recently charged and b) the phone was off.

All in all, it performs the advertised task very well and the torch function is unexpectedly good and exceeds expectation.
