    Looking for a slightly bigger capacity charger than my current Anker 5200mAh, and want to spend around the £20-25 mark.

    Any tips?

    I’d stick with Anker. Great quality items.

    Went with a big Anker one and very pleased.

    On a related note I have 2 of the following which are a couple of years old now and whilst charging just now one of them got incredibly hot and only offered 37% charge before becoming empty (it was charged fully last night but only reached 3 blue lights). My questions are:
    - could using a power bank that gets incredibly hot cause damage to my phone battery?
    - given that it offered 37% charge from 'full', am I safe to say that this one has served its purpose and is now ready for the bin?
    - what sort of life should such a power bank have?

    You can't go wrong with Anker products, especially their power banks.
