You'll have to be quick though! It's simple, you text them and they text you back a unique code. You then go to your local ee shop asap before they run out (again), hand over the code and they give you the powerbar there. :)
It's brill, if ever you're out and about and it runs flat, simply pop in to the nearest ee shop and swap it for a fully charged one, free! :D

i think my old boss still has one... he doesn't like change lol.. a power bar is a little tube thing with a usb port, basically a posh battery to stick your phone into if you are out & run out of charge...

I would like to add a warning that these are also only on HIRE not for free! If you leave EE you will have to return it or pay £5

Indeed, it's 18 months. Sorry, I should have mentioned this. At least it's 18 months of hassle free juice for your phone as long as you stay with EE :)

It will probably catch many people out but as long as they're aware of it. I was told that I'd get a reminder before it ends if I want to return it. By then it will probably be dead anyway! :))

I'm sure a lot of people will get caught out, a quick look on ebay brings up a fair few of them too!

Yep, they'll be charged eventually :doh:
It's a 'free to hire' scheme for 18 months then return it if you don't want to keep it.

I tried one of those solar powered thingamebobs but they were pants.
This is handy to have if you're out all day and most phones nowadays don't last all day :doh:
If you leave EE, you won't get charged if you give it back. If they ever try to charge me for it, I'll tell them where to shove it :eek: :))

aslong as people know that's good! I use one I got from currys, probably my best buy this year only cost me about £12 I think (I could be wrong) and lasts forever and I use it a good few times a day seeing as iPhone battery's are shockingly bad!

I had an iPhone once, I know what you mean about the pants battery life! I'm now with samsung, slightly better. I'd never go back to iphone though. I say that now but I remember saying once that I'd never leave iphone! :doh: :))

I've got iphone 6 :DThe battery is good actually. Maybe they have improved, because I've never had an iphone before this one
