    Can anyone give any testimony to how these last on the shelf? I think I'd more than likely charge it up and store to take out when there's the possibility of a day out/camping. Just wondering if it'd lose charge drastically if it sits for a while? Wouldn't be much good if you got there and there wasn't any juice left.

      I can't give a testimony since I don't have one yet, but THEORETICALLY LiPo should leak at a very low rate. 2-5% per month seems to be the quoted rate.

      I'll admit I don't understand why Sony chose LiPo when LiIon would have been cheaper considering its shape.

    How true is the 7000mAH? IIRC there are typically power losses of 25% (http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/114779)

    Anyway, has anybody got one? Comments?

    Thanks, just bought one, at this price, i doubt you will be able to buy any decent brand external battery bank like this. I was close to buy one the other day when it was sold 79 a pop, but didn't get it coz the price was just way too steep

      I'm using a Belkin 4000mAh for almost 2 years now, tried to look for it at TGG's website (was going for $25 back then) but can't find it anymore as I plan to get the same one for a friend's birthday. While checking out other brands, I saw this… but since they're "awaiting stock" i didn't get it and she's leaving this weekend! Got the 2800mAh instead for $30 .. :/

      I use a non-genuine USB car charger with my iOS6 iPhone 5 using a genuine lightning adaptor and the phone locks out saying that it isn't an approved accessory although it does charge very slowly.. how does it know? :o

        Apple chargers have slightly different voltages on data lines and the phone measures this to detect a non-genuine charger.

      My chinese no brand has both a 2.1 A output and a 1 amp output. We charge two phones at once, so I assume you could do two ipads if it is the same.

        I'm sure a battery bank that has a working sdcard slot is alot smarter than a battery that has no display what so ever.. just how do you tell how full it is; and when its fully charged? lol.

        It be more like Plug and Pray.. rather than Plug and play.

      You can take your chances with it if you want. I very much doubt it'll end up being 11200mAh though (or of general high quality, for that matter).

      have no idea about Yoobao, Sony is a brand I can trust though

    • +1 vote

      Most likely a knockoff with much less capacity. I recently got a Yoobao in Kuala Lumpur during holiday. I was vaguely familiar with the brand but no idea on what the genuine price is/was. Seemed like good idea and price at the time thinking KL has lower priced electronics anyway.

      Wasn't until I got home that discovered this is a popular brand for cheap knockoffs. Yoobao site even has a verification page where you can enter serial number to determine if genuine or not. I bought a dud.

    •  

      If you get a real yoobao you are good, but eBay is covered in fakes. Having said that, dispute on PayPal and you will get your money back.

    •  

      A friend bought me a Yoobao 10400mAh as a gift at the start of this year and its been going fine since. Quality is very decent and I've been using it with no problems. Just be sure to get a genuine one.

    Nice post OP. I think these should be good. It's not worth risking the cheap chinese brands on ebay and such due to not getting what you paid for and perhaps them sourcing the batteries through less than ethical means (e.g. crappy battery plants in China).

    However, if you want more control over what you buy and include as a part of your portable battery then I suggest you head over to www.fasttech.com and pick out:

    • a power pack enclosure link

    • unprotected cells (sanyo are good) of your choice. e.g. link

    Obviously it's a little dearer but I think you can be more certain of the capacity and unit you get etc.

    But honestly at this price Sony is the way to go.

    •  

      I ordered myself a 1 amp Ruinovo 2port USB enclosure + 2 3400mah Panasonic cells about 2 weeks ago for $29 AUD. Kind of hurts a little to see a competing product at such a low price :(

      •  

        That looks good, might buy one when (if, though it seems probable at this point) this falls through.
        Have you received it yet, and am I correct in assuming the total capacity is 6800mAh (stupid question, I know, but just checking)?

    •  

      Thanks for that fasttech link. Interesting.

      So if one bought that power pack and sanyo cells, the total cost is also $30? I see the sanyo cell comes in a pack of 2…and the total capacity is now 2600mAH x 4 = 10,400mAH!

      I just bought the Sony one but can't help wondering if I should have bought this instead?

      •  

        I was just about to post Fasttech as well. This Sony Power Bank is certainly not a bad deal but it probably doesn't deserve this many positive votes..

        I recently got a 5200 mAh set from them and it is working great :) and it only costed $16.02 USD.

        it won't be 100% efficient not even close (more like 70%.. maybe less), also careful with those cheap power packs that don't charge using cc/cv (constant current/voltage) not even close. Unless your into flashlights/vaping, would go with this one.

        • -1 vote

          cheap power packs are fine as long as you get good batteries and a good case. the coolook power pack has been tested to be ~90% efficient up to 2amps.

          the problem now is getting it shipped as lithium batteries are now contraband. there is a chance it may pass if its installed into the case prior to shipping.

        •  

          not sure about the coolook, but most of those still trickle charge (yep I realise the unit might have voltage cutoff).. anyone using those lithium cells and going diy out to have a multimeter handy as well.. if cells were ever removed or switched around.. and mismatched voltages inserted.. ouch. also ditto difficulty obtaining cells cheaply from o/s

          Another unit worth looking at is made by Anker (forget exact name) and uses a lipoly cell and slim form factor, can charge some laptops/netbooks too.. Also like Energizer XP series as well

    Will this work with a PS Vita? I have a friend who has a powerbank, but it does not charge the PS Vita. Does anyone know whether this powerbank will work (it is a sony powerbank). Thanks!

    •  

      You need a Patriot Fuel + 9000 mAH. They are expensive, but they provide 2.5A of power which is needed so that you can use the Vita while this battery pack is connected.

      Plus 2 usb ports..always a plus.

      MSY sells Patriot Fuel+ 9000 mAH for $99 I think.

    nice price - http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/102637#comment-1379435

    good reviews
    http://alatest.com.au/reviews/mobile-phone-reviews/sony-cpf2...
    http://www.amazon.com/Sony-CPF2LS-Portable-Supply-Battery/pr...

    pretty considerable charge (7000 mAh is enough to charge most smartphones at least twice, and even a large tablet like the iPad 4 or Nexus 10 can be charged from 0% to well over 50%)

    compact size (approximately 13.0 cm x 6.8 cm x 1.2 cm, or 5.1 in. x 2.7 in. x 0.47 in.) allows it to easily fit in my bag

    build quality is very solid, being made out of, I'm guessing, a very rigid-feeling aluminum, with hard plastic ends.

    will add about 30% to my Nexus 4 in only about 10 minutes

    Sony also says on the package that you can recharge this thing 1000 times and it will still retain 90% of its capacity

        Don't forget that almost every car company in some time in history has had a global recall.

        And don't forget that almost every airlines have had a plane crash or accident, therefore you should be careful of that.

        It happens from time to time, nobody is perfect and since a company is made of people, then no company is perfect.
