Would this work with an inserted battery to charge a phone portably, or is it simply to plug into the mains to charge it?

    Hi Rhys, This product is designed to charge LiPo batteries via the JST connector using a micro USB connector. As such you wouldn’t be able to charge a mobile phone with this device.
