    I need a new battery pack as my mum keeps stealing mines () but I need it to be cheap, under $20? I want it to be in a square shape not a cylinder; the cylinders look cheap.
    Around 3000mah?

    How about just getting the same one you had before?

    Yeah I would, but they've scrapped it a few months ago

    Oh, right. Which one? Maybe you could find it on eBay.

    I've had pretty good luck with the Jackery Bar. A lot of people seem to use the Anker batteries too.

    Battery packs go on sale all the time, try slickdeals, they always end up on the front page and they're usually not that expensive.

    You can get fairly good 3000 mAh battery packs, and from reputable companies too, for around $15 (sometimes a few dollars less or more) on Amazon...but most of those are cylinder ones that are basically designed to be like small flashlights (so you sort of get both a flashlight and a small portable battery in a fairly compact form).
