Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: EasyAcc 8400mAh External Battery Pack with LED Flashlight Power Bank USB Charger for iPhone 5 4S 4 / Samsung Galaxy S4 S3 Note II Mega 6.3 5.8 / HTC One One Mini / LG Optimus G I9 I7 4X G2 / Nokia Lumia 920 900 1050 / Google Nexus 7 / Blackberry Z10 Q10 9900 torch / Sony Xperia Z / MP3 MP4 / Cycling [2 x USB output: 5V/2.0A; 5V/0.6A] (Accessory)
Excellent portable charger that charges my phone in emergencies when i need it the most.
The external charger is a very sturdy device which does weigh slightly more than i expected but this is not much of an issue as u get use to it. The charger itself has four LED lights which indicates the amount of power left in the device. 2 USB ports ( one of them a 0.6A and the other a 2.0A which charges your phone/ desired device faster). It has 1 mini usb port which use to charge up the external charger itself through an AC outlet. The charger itself is roughly the size of a pack of cards.

I would say the portable charger charges my samsung galaxy s2 about 3-4 times before it dies. However i only use it in emergencies when my phone battery is about to die when im out and charging through an AC output is not possible so it can last for a few weeks between charges easily. It really depends on how u use it. Also dont be alarmed if on the 1st charge cycle your external charger loses battery quickly as this gets better in time as you give it a few more charges. I would suggest to let it charge 1st time overnight b4 using it to charge any of your devices.

Along with the charger included are two USB cables of different sizes which u connect into the external charger and the other side of the cable is a port which fits several small pieces included. I generally use the micro usb piece of which they include two of which is quite helpful as i can use 1 cable and 1mini usb piece primarily for charging the portable charger through an AC output and the other cable and mini usb for my phone so i dont need to switch bits and bobs about. There are also few more pieces which u can attach onto the cable to charge different devices. I have tried an old nokia with the bigger circle connector and a nokia e6 which has the smaller circle connector and both charges perfectly fine. There is also an piece to charge apple devices and i've tried this on my girlfriends iphone and ipod nano and its charges fine. I was pleasantly surprised when a piece connected into my bluetooth ps3 controller and started to charge, which was a great addition. However, there wasn't a piece to fit for my nintendo 3ds( which i hoped as it said it charges nintendo ds so i was hopeful it charged the 3ds also but this wasnt to be) Nevertheless a great piece of kit.

the only downside was that it did not include an UK adapter, which they did mention but i still thought they shoud provide this for immediate use. However as i knew about this i bought an EU to UK adapter on amazon along with this so they got dispatched the same time. I would suggest buying an EU TO UK adaptor at the same time as the easyacc8400maH portable charger.
The adapter i bought was for 1.04(prices may change overtime) which can be found here:
[...]
and it works perfectly fine with the external charger.
If u have a 3pin shaver adapter that also works as i tried this out of curiosity when i received the product.

All in all, i would give this product 10/10 and highly recommend it to everyone.

update 27/07/12 (Customer service review): Had a slight problem with the product and easyacc store was quick to respond and despatch me a new one free of charge. They were very helpful. One of the best customer services i have received.

Update: 11/12/12 - I recently bought a ps vita handheld console and the battery on that is fairly average and gaming really drains the battery out severely. The playstation external battery pack for the PS Vita was over 45pounds which is quite expensive. I was curious to see whether the easyacc external charger would charge my ps vita and to my surprise the handheld console was charging just fine. Using the USB lead that came with the PS vita console, I inserted this in the easyacc external charger on the 0.6A and problem solved (Note: the ps vita only charges on the 0.6A output not the 2.0A) Now gaming on the go has got even better as i dont have to worry about the battery on my ps vita. Great stuff!

An EU 2 pin connector comes along with the charger pack (which is USB powered) so u can use the USB wire that comes with the system to charge the device. You can put the 2 pin connector to the shaver adapter and it should work fine. I also forgot to mention on my review that you can also charge the system through most phone chargers which have a mini usb connector. These tend to be Samsung Galaxy chargers/ Blackberry chargers. My samsung galaxy s2 charger works fine to charge the portable device.
