Kit Premium Portable Power Bank (2014)

This genuinely handy high-capacity power bank features two outputs – one for smaller devices such as smartphones, and another for more power-hungry gadgets such as tablets. The Kit Premium Portable Power Bank is pleasingly solid-feeling, well-made and rather swish, featuring a button-activated display that gives you an indication of how much charge is left inside. However, it’s a bit of a dead weight and takes a while to charge. But a power-holding period of up to a year, massive capacity (up to eight iPhone or two iPad charges) and a superb price make this terrific value.
