Thanks, Dave! Eager to hear and hoping for a good solution for you.

If all goes bad, I'd surely contact Tout Terrain and see if they can offer further suggestions or a warranty solution.

All the best,

Dan.

Well it's sorted but I don't know why.  I decided to run the battery through a couple of complete charge/discharge cycles and following that, it seems it will successfully charge an iPhone 6 plus - both whilst taking a charge itself and without.

I know that there is no memory effect (though some research differs) on Lithium Ion batteries as opposed to NiCd or Nimh but just thought I'd see whether a complete cycle would have an effect.  It seems to have done.

Currently seeing how far it will charge an iPhone 6 plus from dead - in theory the batteries are a similar size but with the charging inefficiency will be interesting to see how much of a charge it can give it.

So I'm happy but none the wiser!

Dave

I've seen cables play havoc in this way ... but was the cable the same?
