    I'll start you off with this Anker mini USB battery charger. At £13.99 it may not be the most powerful, but will get you to the end of a long journey and will feel comfortable in your pocket unlike the larger ones:

    Anker® Astro Mini 3000mAh Ultra-Compact Portable Lipstick-Sized External Battery Backup Charger Power Bank Charger for iPhone 5 (Apple adapters not included) 4S 4 3GS, iPod, Samsung Galaxy Note, Galexy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, Galaxy Nexus, HTC One

    Does JD or Jim Beam count? It's under £25 a bottle! Plus I'm a geek and would love either as a gift!

    Edit: Linkypoos for the drinkeypoos!

    Jim Beam Red Stag: http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/grocerie...=1386086744352

    It counts as long as you link to where the best price is!
