PNY Power-78S power bank review


PNY Power-728s does not include the yellow green flat lightning cable

I got this power bank from CashCashPinoy for around P1,200 pesos delivered straight to office. The SRP of this power bank is around P1,900 so I saved a fair amount of money with this deal.

Package only comes with a short microUSB cable. No adaptor or socket is included so I use my iPhone 5s' or Nokia Lumia 1020's charging adaptor to charge the power bank straight from electric sockets.

The power bank can charge my iPhone 5s full charge 3 times before being drained completely. Charging the power bank takes a long time, I usually plug the power bank to an electric socket around 11pm and then it becomes fully charged around 7-8am the following morning. You can charge  two device at the same time. I was also able to charge devices via the power bank while also charging the power bank itself (I'm not sure if it a good practice).

Build quality is great. This power bank does not look cheap unlike other brands. It also has this "enough" weight that makes the device feel durable

Update (6/6/2015)
This device is very reliable. I can get 2-3x full charge of my iPhone 5s. The powerbank takes a while to charge though, specially if you are using normal phone adapters.
