Is brand that is new in Malaysia, competing against those budget range power banks like Mi, Yaobao and Pineng. Looking at the physical feature is has plastic finish with the ABS logo in the middle but from afar it looks like a stitch leather finish, sneaky premium look. Also the 4 dot power level indicator. Weights 220grams.

What differs this compare to the other slim profile power banks which I own, is the others doesnt have LED. Which looks like a camera module from afar, and having LED is important just I wish the LED was 2-3 times brighter than it is now.

Now to the performance bit. The basic specification detail is a bit confusing the package shows 12,000mAh while the battery shows 10,000mAh capacity at the back. I will explain in detail later.

2.15 amp input

The rated input is 5V at 2 amp which we gotten 2.15amp. The rated output each port is 2.1 amps and when 2 ports are in use the max output would be also 2.1 amps. We gotten 1.72amps max for Output 1 and 1.68amps  for Output 2, I tried differ phones and setups but it didn’t hit 1.9amps. However, when both port are in use I gotten 2.30amps total that is more than 2.1amps advertise, sweet.

input received in mAh

So the 12,000mAh they mention on the package is the total input charge while the 10,000mAh is the total potential output charge. Thus is a 10,000mAh power bank. Based on total output against total input the actual conversion charge received is 74.06% . I set 75% as a minimum requirement and the power bank is close to it. It can charge Iphone 6 around 4.9 times.

I would recommend getting a slim power bank as it can fit well in bags without taking much space which I also like putting it my pants to travel around with it as I may not carrying a bag around. I hope the charger controller would be much efficient at receiving and also max out the output level to hit 1.9 amps and conversion ratio above 75%at least.
