The EE Power Bar weighs in at a decent 2,600mAh battery capacity. That’s enough to charge most smartphones, but some, like the Sony Xperia Z3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, won’t quite get a full top up. When it comes to recharging the power bar, it’ll take around four hours when using the included micro USB lead.

The power bar also has an LED torch and indicator lights that show how much charge is left in the battery.
