    Hello,

    Has anyone got one of these that actually charges your phone?

    I've tried two:

    EE power bar, given away for free to their customers, about 2000 mAh, puts about 10% into my passport which takes about an hour: then the bar is flat

    A 4000 mAh one from Tesco which cost 15 - this puts about 30% (max) into him taking 3 hours. In general though this one 'powers' the phone and doesn't put much charge in.

    With both I'm using a genuine BlackBerry micro USB charging cable (the one from my passport charger actually) which I assume is 28/24 and good quality.

    What ones would actually charge 30% passport up to 100% in around the same time that a desktop charger would

    My favorite brand so far has been Anker. Anything with their iQ charging will be top notch. I bought the 20,000mAh one. But they have much smaller, more reasonably sized ones.

    I have the Zerolemon 20,000mah Solar Juice and it works amazingly on my Q10.

    Anker is top quality and Aukey seems to be good too. Ive got both brands and I've had the Anker longer but both have worked well. The Anker is 13,000 and the Auckey is 20,000 and both were about $27. They charge phones quick and last a long time. Both have 18 months warranty too.

    Got the EE power bar and works fine on my Passport. Just make sure it's fully charged before use.

    Also if you read the T&Cs. The power bars are not free, there on loan and are the property of EE. If you fail to attend an EE store to exchange for another, after 18 months, you'll be charged 20 for it. So exchange it now and then.

    Anker 6700 is great. Tried bigger 10000+ and is very big and way too heavy!

    I got a 10.4k mAh external at home but had to use it only once in a month for the phone, it's really not necessary; 0% battery lasted for me 15 minutes of talking on the phone and BBM chat.

    I have an antigravity jumpstart battery pack that comes with a USB port for charging. I've gotten five Q10 charges on it before so likely 3 for the Passport. Haven't tried it yet. They are remarkably small for the power they pack...plus you can jump start your car with it.

    Have these two power bars. I'm sure you know which one gets to travel the most.

    I use this and it gets me two full charges on a PP. They are cheap as chips in comparison to some high end power-banks, but they don't have 'everything for $5" kind of quality. Browse their website and specs are impeccable. I get a quality stuff with one of these, one year with 10400 mAh AND so far I have no complains.

    Well it does the job for me and if needed I have the other, which rarely needs using with PP.

    OP what is important here is to have proper amperage, the charger the PP comes with dishes out 1.2A and my 10.4k mAH has two USB plugs which do 1A and 2A (the 2A, ironically, is labeled iPhone).

    The EE Power Bars works fine and can give the PP a full charge. As long as the Power Bar is fully charged before use.

    Stock charger is rated at 1300mA. Single port Power banks usually do not limit themselves at 1A and will give charge beyond 1A. Phone regulates itself how much current it requires.

    The passport has a battery capacity of 3450mah so good luck with a full charge using anything less than that..
