freitasm: I have one I can swap with your batteries charger for a while?


That could be interesting, thanks. I only a two outlet Belkin, would that do you?


I was thinking of that battery charger for rechargeable AA/AAA you offered a month or so back - I can use that to test some of the batteries we have here while you test the Anker.

timmmay: If anyone in Wellington is order one of these any time maybe drop me a message, I might get one too. I don't care enough to go through the youshop process myself.

Also interested if anyone wants to loan me one for a few days to test charge performance. I'm testing different chargers and cables to see how they affect phone charge rate, which I'll report on in a week or so. I'd need a few days as my S4 battery lasts a couple of days on a charge.


I'm back in the US in two weeks and will be ordering some stuff from Amazon (including a couple of these). I'm more than happy to order a few extras if anybody wants them. I'm not after any money from it, simply the price of the device + shipping inside NZ if people are outside Wellington. If anybody wants one let me know.

I'm guessing you can just bend the pins on these to fit the NZ socket?

Nope. It's a figure of 8 cable - you just buy one with a AU/NZ plug on it from an electrical wholesaler for a few $

No point in bending a US plug which doesn't even have proper insulation and poses an electrical risk.
