    The internal battery runs off 3.7V and with a 90000mAh capacity the total continuous rating is a reasonably impressive 33.3WHr
    One hell of a battery this is

    At £50 it would be worth it at 90,000mAh. As it is, it's shockingly overpriced.

    Aye got a 4000 mAh one for £20 from Staples of all places. Adequate for what I need currently

    Not impressed - got a pair of Anker Astro E4's about six months ago from Amazon, each with a 13,000mAh capacity (ie nearly 50% larger than the Fuel+). Cost about £30 each and came with dual ports (2A and 1A) plus an LED torch feature. There's probably "better" units out there now (although not this Patriot one) but the E4 comes with a good set of leads and a storage bag plus, best of all, it uses a standard micro-USB charger, so you can even top it up in your car.

    If Patriot want to sell the Fuel+ to me then the price needs a dramatic cut - £49 is way too much, £20 is top end for what I'd consider.

    Re: Reviews - Patriot FUEL+ 9000 mAh Mobile Rechargeable Battery

    Been using my Pebble for years which is only 5000mAh but again only cost £20 all those years ago and came with attachments for everything under the sun so I only had to carry 1 cable for all devices (before the days of everything being Micro USB).

    £50 is just too high - at a push I would pay £30 but would be happier with £25

    Did anyone see the iPhone case that also doubled as a spare battery/re-charger? Made the phone look pretty damn huge and clunky but it was still usable in the normal way (rather than having a spare battery dangling from a cable).

    Obviously this is a multi device unit so the design isn't really applicable for a general purpose market
