Hi Gareth,

You might remember I contacted you a while ago about the difficulty we have purchasing power banks from the mainland here in N. Ireland, and you discussed the issue in some depth on the podcast. Just wanted to let you know I came across one product on Amazon which doesn’t have the dreaded red “No delivery for you” warning. Not sure if this is an oversight or if there is some specific reason why this one is not restricted.

Anyway, it’s a Vinsic 12,000mAh Power Bank with built-in Qi Wireless charging, which just happened to be exactly the specs I was looking for. I managed to successfully order one and have been using it for over a week. It allows charging of three devices at once (two wired and one wireless), and seems very well built. So I can recommend this for any folks in our power bank deprived province: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01N6NPDFI

Thanks again for the podcast and product reviews. Keep up the good work!

Hi Guys and dolls,

Was up with apple. They reckon it is a firmware issue specifically the interface between the battery and the power management software. They did a software and firmware reset so I’m just restoring my content now and hoping for the best!

The battery is constantly feeding into to the power management software through the firmware. If the firmware isn’t working properly it causes mini crashes and is constantly resetting itself and sucking away the battery.

The guy I was speaking to was very helpful and he could see that there was a problem (it dropped 3% during the battery diagnostic test). He reckons it was the firmware as I have already wiped and restored the software and the actual battery checked out fine.

Think a Powerbank may have put the kibosh on my iPhones battery. It’s draining super quick now. Can literally see the % falling as I’m using it. Any apps that connect to the net just wipes out the battery at the min. I’ve done 2 full cycles to restore battery levels. Going to take a few more to get it back to normal. My wife had other with the battery on her iPhone 6 because she was using the iPad charger. Took a week or so of cycling the battery fully. That’s why I’m always wary of quick charge stuff. Smart charging isn’t that smart!

Hi Gareth & Crew, Really enjoying the podcast – great to hear a Northern Ireland accent on a tech show (I’m a local), a nice change from the American! As you’re probably aware, buying power banks and replacement batteries in NI can be a bit of a challenge as Amazon and most other sellers will no longer post them here. Personally, it took 5 attempts before I found a seller on eBay willing to dispatch an Anker to NI, rather than simply cancelling my order outright. Do you have any suggestions for purchasing items like these online for people in Northern Ireland, or are we always going to be restricted to what’s available locally? Out of interest, purchasing a replacement battery for my Note 4 was initially futile as no-one will send a rechargeable lithium ion battery here, until I went direct to the Samsung UK site, and they dispatched one no questions asked. How come they can do it and other sellers can’t? And how come a brand new boxed phone containing a rechargeable battery can be sent from Amazon no problem, but the battery can’t be sent on its own? Frustrating! Thanks again for any insight you might have, It would be interesting to know what Aukey, Anker, and companies like them have to say on the matter. Personally, I’d even be happy to pay an additional postage charge, or use a slower ground-based shipping method, if this allowed for the transport of such items. Andrew
