I was pretty sceptical it had a Mac magsafe connector, but apparently it does. Fair enough!

My neighbour left her car lights on overnight, so battery dead, car not starting.

Out I came with my £22 tiny little powerbank. I felt like a bit of a fool, how could such a small battery possibly jump start the car?

But yes. Yes it did start the car!

Anything with Lithium Ion Batteries and the like can only be sent to UK Mainland, so I recommend AddressPal.

Grabbed one aswell, for 19.40 has to be worth a punt considering youd pay the same for a powerbank, as above addresspal was the only option, even though the only time I used them before they lost the package I'll give them 1 more try.

Intrested to see how it will fair over time without much use and if it'll end up as a paperweight, but sure isn't that what bargain alerts is for!

Can be used as a powerbank also.. so potentially some usage there.

You will need to charge it up every month or two otherwise it won't be able to jump start a car, but there is no reason it won't last for a few years. I'm keeping mine in my classic car (20 years old) that I take up the mountains to go hiking. The last thing I would want after coming down from a long winter hike to my car in the middle of nowhere with no phone reception is for it not to start
