The casing is very well built, with good rounded edges, if a little slippy. I have it in a zipped pocket inside my jacket so it won't drop out if I lean down to tie my shoelaces. It is less heavy and bulky than I expected, I do not notice it in my pocket.
I was disappointed to find it will not charge my nicolites e cigs. They begin charging but the Oxford Street battery does not recognize there's something plugged in an swithces off. But as there are two usb outlets, I can charge my ecig batteries as long as I am charging my SGS3 at the same time, because that keeps the battery pack activated.
It will also not recognize my old Nokia phone, switches off after the normal ten second shut down period. But I do not use the old Nokia anymore.
Oxford Street 12000Mah takes about 6 hours to charge back up from empty, through my netbook usb.
Really very useful battery pack and I'm surprised by the good quality casing considering this is the cheapest of the type I found after looking at a dozen.
2) No instructions. How long do I charge it for? Do I leave it switched on to charge or switched off? Oh that's right, you have to guess.
3) Uh... it doesn't work. Tried every way of charging this stupid lump of plastic and the most life I get out of it is the lights flashing up when I first plug it into the wall. Doesn't mean anything though, because once I unplug it from the socket (after 5 hours) it won't switch on. Try plugging phone into it. Nada.
Point 3 is obviously just a faulty unit (nice quality control there, guys) but the first two points still stand. DO NOT BUY.
I will now be emailing Amazon for a refund and I'll be pissed if I have to pay for any postage.
I got 2 full charges out of the battery. It charged it from 9% to 100%, and then from 3% to 100%. Then next time it charged it from 10% to 29%. This means that I only got about 3605mAh from it. So, either I got a faulty product, or it isn't as advertised.
It didn't heat up or malfunction when it was working and it did give a consistent charge, so I won't rate it too low. But just know that if you need to charge something with a large battery, it might not work.
Unfortunately it only just managed to charge my Nexus4 almost twice before giving up the ghost and completely dieing.
The LED indicator for the battery strength doesn't seem to scale correctly, as I went from having 3 full LED's to completely dead (device flashes 1 LED and doesn't charge)
For the money (£14.69) its average, taking into account a 2 hour charge at a festival vendor costs £10
So for the purposes of powering off a devices and this charging is up, it's useless, As the device draws more than this can provide.
It's ok for taking a device at 100% and slowing it's depletion down.
So if your phone as a sat nav only lasts 3 hours, this will extend it to perhaps 5. But at the end of the 5 hours the phone will still be at 0% and so will the battery pack.

The charger didn't cost very much and unfortunately it showed. The battery would perhaps charge my phone 1. Read morePublished on 20 Jan. 2015 by Steg
Definitely not 12000Mah, it charges my 3100mah smartphone twice, and then it's dead. so it's almost half the capacity advertised. Read morePublished on 17 Aug. 2014 by Jordan Sutton
I bought this with the intention of using it for camping. I'm a scout leader and when on week long camps it can be difficult to keep a smartphone powered up for the whole week. Read morePublished on 25 July 2014 by SeanyBo
At the time it was a good price but if I had the choice again, I'd spend the extra and get an Anker Astro E4Published on 6 May 2014 by Geoff
This is a brilliant addition to a back pack. It charges a flat IPod and still has charge left over for the IPhone. Read morePublished on 30 Nov. 2013 by Jo
