    For some reason Best Buy are selling these off, I have one and it charges my laptop which I rarely use now due to the ipad, but will also power the iPad for 2 full charges, plus phones and other stuff, check out the details in the attached link, price includes free delivery :Wink:

    The Gorilla and other of their products and prices can be seen here, so shows the saving https://www.powertraveller.com/iwantsome/primatepower/powergorilla/

    For what it is it seems expensive. Not sure what I would use it for. I don't have an ipad but do have a 2.1A usb adaptor to fit a lighter socket at £2.99 which would charge it if I had one:Cool:

    I agree I use one similar to this 12V Universal In Car Laptop Power Charger Adapter....I can charge my lap top or netbook or I can run it without the battery for £7.88.... I run from the hab battery or cab battery ???? why would I want one of those powergorilla at £89.97 even though it is reduced !!! WHAT:Doh:...for a extra 2 to 5 hours and then you have to charge that up from the MAINS !!!:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Yes I have one of those as well, works fine. Mine was a few quid more from Maplins but looks identical.

    I paid £4.95 plus a couple of quid postage for a universal charger that plugs in to the lighter socket .. came with all the different plugs, charges all types of laptops from 14v to 19v

    I got one on eBay for 99p - but I had to pay £6.99 on top for postage :Smile:

    By my reckoning I saved £81.99 and have all the flexibility mentioned above :BigGrin:
