    I've just bought one of these for charging my phone when out and about playing Ingress.

    £10 more than your budget but a great little gadget.

    We went out for a birthday meal last night and (taking the kids into account) went to what was a really good pub that did great pub food with local produce.
    On arrival however it had turned into a gastro pub since our last visit with prices to match! The food was excellent though

    You'd better have chosen the right faction! Grr!
    I actually own one of these exact batteries. First one had a bit of a failure (it would only charge to halfway after a few uses) but the guys offered me a free one as compensation, so if you have any problems, leave them a 2-or-3* review mentioning your issues

    Even at only half charge it was brilliant, though. Definitely a nice little pack if you find yourself needing power a lot.

    That looks like might might be perfect for powering a Raspberry Pi on the go - have either of you tried that?

    (sorry to slightly derail the topic!)

    Don't own one, but with both 1Amp and 2Amp outputs, I suspect it would be, actually. Good thinking!

    But there you go With your £20, but a Pi. Then buy a portable battery. And them some kind of screen. And input.
    Oo-err this is starting to cost a bit more than £20..

    The only reason I could see it not working is if it's not capable of maintaining 2A of draw, but batteries don't usually have that problem... will buy one on pay day and put it to the test (will be handy to have as backup for my mobile anyway!)
