    After a portable battery pack thing. It's mainly for iPhone and iPad but they all have USB anyway really for compatibility for any phone.

    I have a few smaller pocket ones, but they are literary a boost for emergency really.

    So want a decent mAh but don't want it too big to carry also. It's for a trip really so not be using all the time.

    Are these ok to travel with in hand luggage through airport checks as well?

    Thanks

    Yes, they are fine to take on airlines... If you charge an iPad and an iPhone, your going to need a large battery, around 15000-20000mah. If your just going to charge an iPhone, your going to want a 6000mah battery, if it is an iPhone 6/6+.

    Should have said sorry, it's basically for a summer holiday, and we have to stop in airport a while so unless we find a power point was going to get one of these in case for a boost to keep kids happy.

    It'll be 2 iPad minis and possibly an iPhone 6 or my Google phone friends which take.

    They are good to have. I only used mine once in a year of owning it, but it came in handy when needed.

    I don't know. it's been a while since I got it as a present a couple years ago. You'll want to get whatever is out there now.

    Looks good to me, if I can find it on Amazon UK will go for it think. Nice that's it's MFi as well.

    How many charges does it for an iPhone 6 for example?

    I can easily get 4 full charges out of it and still have some juice to spare.

    Edit: I was able to get two full charges on my iPhone 6 and two full charges on my wife's HTC One, with some juice still left over.

    Sorry I meant was the 4 charges for the iPhone 6, it's USB so as you say will work on all devices nigh on.

    Can't find on Amazon UK though

    Sorry about that, I corrected my original post. Take a look at myunu.com, you can order it directly from the manufacturer. I am fairly certain they will ship to the UK.
