The service we received was excellent. Parcel arrived promptly and intact. We were looking to replace a charger for Kindle Book and thought this do the job but sadly it doesn't. We will keep searching

charge tube portable phone chargér
Very handy gadget
I have several old mobile phones which I wanted to check before discarding them but had already disposed of their chargers. I was impressed at the range of connections which came with the charger, so this is a very handy little gadget.

charge tube portable fone charger
I bought two of these chargers. One is for a friend__Christmas present and the other one I have started using. It's good It is small and cute. It fits snugly even in a small hand bag together with your fone. It does not need a large space It is smart and presentable to whatever class of people you are with.It is user friendly. Amazing gudget. You only need few minutes charging your fone and you are good to go. Assorted connections for different types of mobile fones and other gudgets is the cherry on the cake. I recommend this charger to to anyone. It is a friend in deed

Samsung S4
comme un fil à couper le beurre
Plus simple et moins cher tu ne peux trouver. Je l'utilise tout le temps et notamment dans ma voiture en lieu et place des long fils de chargement sur les prises allume cigare. Seul bémol, le vissage métal sur plastique des 2 capuchons pour insérer la pile AA pose trop souvent problème, ils sautent.

Charge Tube Portable charger
A win win emergency charger
This charger comes with every type of phone adapter so if you change your phone as often as you change your underwear you don't need to change your emergency charger. It is a once in life time purchase that will last a life time and beyond. Well at least until you start to see those grey hairs and may be into the purple rinse look for the girls or heaven to bid for the guys the slap head look. With this bargain device your not only able to in an emergency use a AA non rechargeable battery from any local shop or super market but you can be green by using rechargeable batteries at home and save the planet with every charge. The reason why I love this item is its an easy to use simple cheap device and because it does not have its own internal rechargeable battery its not on the scrap heap after the life of an internal battery fails. So like I say a win win situation - the best of both worlds what more can you ask for?

Batterie externe à pile, mon rêve
Pratique et efficace, juste un bémol sur l'affichage de la charge réellement obtenue qui diffère de celle affichée en cours de recharge (si affiche 90% et qu'on débranche le chargeur = reste 45 % effectif) aussi bien sur android que sur iphone).

Samsung Glaxy S4 mini
This Charger tube that i purchased was alright but not brilliant.However it is a suitable size and is not so heavy.all you have to do is insert the battery in to the tube and your done.These shall i say are the positive things about it.I have a galaxy s4 mini and it takes time to charge which did annoy me it is good for phones that are smaller but i not suitable for smart phones/big phones.

Nokia Lumia 800
Only use in a REAL emergency!
I bought this as I was going to be a field for a day and the Lumia has rubbish battery power. Slightly concerned how hot the barrel got and didn't want to put it in my bag as I was worried about it scorching. It gave a tiny charge but nothing much. Would look at other options next time.

no good for smart phones
it would have been helpful before I bought to know that this charger dose not supply enough power to charge my HTC 1X which is what my phone displayed as soon as I first used it , wouldn't recommend purchasing one of these if you have a smart phone like mine, so I am sad to say very disappointed with this purchase from mobile fun not up to your usual quality as previous purchases .

Samsung galaxy S3
just what I needed
This gadget is brill. The only downside is the connection which I wanted it for (Samsung galaxy S3) is a little loose when connected so will have to keep a check on it when in use. Would be handy to have a spare one just in case.

Galaxy note
Acquisition pour un voyage long courrier de 12 heures, il faut le connecter le chargeur tube avant une décharge complète du tel. Attention la pile rechargeable (ou autre) n'est pas incluse. IL faut veiller à acheter des piles assez puissantes. Très bon achat, très utile.

Major Thumbs Down
Sucks the battery life and doesnt charge it at all, it doesnt even stay on charge and your phone will run out of battery whether it is in or not. Useless. I cannot get my thumbs to go any lower on this one, I never give bad reviews but this product was a mess. I'm not even going to get into the pricing.

Pack super
Ce pack de chargeurs est très utile pour tout portable, ce qui est bien c'est qu'il se recharge juste avec l'aide d'une pile, donc ce qu'il faut c'est toujours avoir une pile sur soit, avec le chargeur est le fils convenue au portable, ca peut se chargeur où on veut, quand on veut, que ce soit, en cours, à table en mangeant, en dormant, ou en écoutant de la musique ou sur l'ordi. Ce chargeur est super.

Ok, but not brilliant
I have used some higher power rechargeable batteries with this product and it just about keeps the phone going. I have an HTC Hero. It doesn't seem to charge it at all. It does keep it going for a couple of hours though, as long as you don;t use it. Ended up paying more for a PowerMonkey but it is far better and charged two phones fully before it needed recharging itself. Downside is that you need power to charge the emergency charger but all in all much better than this.

Does just what it says in the description
Great little product for when we're going to be using the phone intensively on long trips and peace of mind to have it available in an emergency. Small enough to fit in a handbag, large enough to be able to find it in the glove compartment. Prompt delivery. We're glad we bought it.

Charge Tube 2 - Universal Emergency Charger
The service was great and product arrived well in time for my needs. All seemed fine, but then found that the mini usb connector was a loose fit or the lead has a broken wire. Now have to use elastic band to keep good connection.

nice idea
this is a nice idea, but it's not suitable for all phones. took it on a camping trip over the weekend and whilst it managed to give my friend's nokia a bit of a boost, it failed to have any impact at all on my Desire, even with lithium digital camera batteries. if you have a standard phone which uses little battery power, then it's a handy back up, but don't bother if you have a smartphone, just buy a spare battery...

Charge Tube 2 - Universal Emergency Charger
Bought two for HTC touch HD and neither of them work on both of our Touch HDs. I note another user failed with an HTC product - I suspect that the unit does not produce a large enough charging current for these WM6 touch screen devices. The HTC mains charger specs at 5v and 1 amp and even a Laptop USB gives 5v at between 500 mamp to 1amp. Can't recommend it unless by chance I have TWO faulty ones.

Worse than useless
I bought this to take on holiday to save me taking my wall charger plus travel plug. It was absolutely useless and I swear it actually drained my phone battery of juice. I ended up having to shell out $40 for a wall charger which is now useless in the UK. Would not recommend this product and would give zero stars if possible

Switching off
If this is like other similar devices, then it has no off switch. The instructions simply say remove the battery when not in use. But who wants a loose battery in their pocket! So I cut out a small plastic disc from the packaging and put it in the screw on end so it's electrically isolated from the battery when not in use.

Handy Charger
The battery compartment is good quality aluminium, the connections are well made and good quality and it works fine on Sony Ericsson & Nokia but NOT the HTC Touch Pro2 (which charges fine via other methods). Overall it's great for the ones it works on, gets warm when charging but nothing serious (good hand warmer!)

No problems charging my phone with Motorola mains or car chargers, and it even charges happily using USB lead connected to laptop and desk. It simply does nothing what a disappointment as others are so happy with their phones and the Charge Tube 2.

I ordered the Charge Tube 2 - Universal Emergency Charger. which arrived very quickly. On trying it, there was a a fault with it. I went to the Mobile Fun website to returns, filled in the online form and posted it back. Two days later the replacement arrived and was working perfectly. The service and communication was excellent and second to none. And as for the charger, a very handy item for the times when you are unable to charge from mains or car,
