1200mah Signalex Powerbank from Poundland

I noticed that poundland are selling 1200mah powerbanks. I got one to test out.  It takes Approx 3hrs for a full charge,  there is a light in the unit it flashes red when charging and stays red when fully charged. When charging your device the light is blue then goes off after 15sec after being unplugged from device. 
I tested charging my phone which is a cubot rainbow 5″ android phone,  used it twice and got 55% charge within an hour and then 53% in just under an hour before the unit battery ran out. So for the average phone could easily get a full charge out of it. 
Used to charge my hudl 2 tablet which does require a 2amp charger,  but only got 14% within an hour then the battery ran out in the unit. So for high powered devices not that great. 
Final thoughts,  for just £1 you can’t complain at the price even though 1200mah is low power really but a useful little device to have on your bag just in case your phone runs out of juice,  Now yes there are better powerbanks available but for more money,  but these are great value for just a quid.

    Don’t expect these to fully charge a modern smartphone as they are really only intended to be an emergency supply for seriously low battery situations (after all what do you expect for a pound?)

    I have some good capacity 18650 cells I harvested from an old laptop battery and will replace the battery with one of those for almost 2.5 times the capacity.

    I bought the pink one from PoundLand in West-And-Favel I didn’t know how it worked so I searched in “Power Bank model 170327” and it came up with this. After reading it and taking the information in; I decided to test it out using my apple Ipod.Bearing in mind my iPod doesn’t take long to charge I decide to time it using a normal charger first and I cleared all of my apps before hand, it took just 15:01mins to get up to 100%. Then I timed it again using the power bank and it took just 5mins longer. As you said it’s great for only a pound
