    Default Bank charger

    Has anyone use a charger like this before http://www.powapal.co.uk/store.php or something similar?

    I have a pebble & powerbank charger, wanted something a bit more heavy duty

    Just looking to charge kindle/phone over 3/4 days.

    Hideous website, I wouldn't give them a penny.

    These are very highly recommended in the outdoor world.

    It all depends on the battery size - 12v 7ah will only last 48hrs for phone charges so for ipads the battery needs to be bigger!

    Honestly don't bother with them Bivvy boxes they are a rip off.. 2 of my mates are getting the above ..

    With the charger etc I think I paid about 70.00 all together.

    but i can charge what I want over a 48hr period no problems and plenty of charge left..

    This is the charger I adapted the end to connect to battery , I usually pop back on charge day or two before I head out fishing..

    Honestly the best battery I've used over the years and know ive got phones and tablets charged if I need them..
