I wanna see that trash
Let's paint it something and make it special
@pinkprius what the
is this for real?!
@pinkprius people suck. This makes me sad
like if you cried
@pinkprius but why?!
@pinkprius its on the borderline of what is actually safe to sell in the UK/EU, is not a very strong accu nor well made or particularly safe.
The Scottish chap does appear to have been able to recharge it with a low cost e-cigarette charger but that is *not* without risks (which is why he doesn't show you how to do it!)
@pinkprius It's tremendously infuriating! I don't know Tesco too well, what country is this? USA?
@hinterwaeldler UK I guess since the metro reported on it: http://metro.co.uk/2017/08/14/are-new-disposable-battery-packs-for-your-smartphones-an-ecological-disaster-6851973/
@pinkprius also it's probably half empty when bought, because it sat on the shelves for some time...
@pinkprius I've remember BigClive covering this and was actively facepalming through the vid.
@pinkprius Makes me want to set up a basked with sign: "Disposable chargers go here". Wonder how long it could power an ESP8266...
@pinkprius we should boycott this and Tesco
@clacke watch the video
@clacke it's insane. I don't know anything about those components though.
