    Need to invest in one of these for going the games rather then trying to find plugs in random Wetherspoons's

    Suggestions on a decent one to get? Cheers

    Got one in Dixons in Airport before Palace game. 18 quid and comes fully charged. Bought a couple of cheaper ones on ebay over the year but definitely not as reliable.

    Penny's have 10 euro and twenty euro ones.
    Think the 10 euro ones are 2600mAh and the twenty euro ones are 26000mAh. The cheaper one is more round and smaller.
    I would of bought the twenty euro one but got one last week.
    The one I got is about half the size of a ciggareete box but same thickness.
    Got it in Eir shop. Takes about 3 hours to charge it. Not sure how many phone charges I'll get out of it but it dosent fast charge my phone.

    And news/updates on this?

    It'd be handy if every car and bus and airplane had a socket added to them!

    Irish Rail have sockets on most Inter city services and as far as I'm aware Bus Eireann have USB outlets for charging. In the UK National Express have sockets but you will have to jump in to 1st class to charge up on most train services. Flying long haul the few airlines I have used recently have USB although will probably have to wait a while before Ryanair roll it out.
    I would presume that most cars now have USB as well.

    IrishRail do, but not enough for each person, if memory serves me correctly.

    Most cars do have USB, but again, not enough for each person! Every seat needs a charging system available in today's world!

    Ryanair will be a long way behind bringing that in! :D
