    Does anyone here ever tried MiPow Power Tube? I'm planning to purchase a Power Tube 2600M from MiPow Philippines as they have a promo which includes a car charger when you buy one. I just need a spare power (outdoors) for my iPhone 5 and according to the review it can charge 115% at most. TIA.

    Can anyone recommend a good powerbank under P1,000? Priority will be on the form factor and reliability. Thanks in advanced!

    Get it from Digital Hub and they will recognize the Philmug discount. BTB doesn't.

    This will depend on the batt of your device. Normal battery is 2000mah. So 8400mah could be, 4x, coz 8400mah is stated but physical have a +3% margin.

    Anybody can correct me if im wrong

    This is rarely the case. I have an iPhone 4s (1430 mAh) and I use my miPow 3000 (3000 mAh) to charge it. So in paper, it should be able to full charge my device twice (may sukli pa nga dapat). But with multiple tests, I was only able to charge it from dead batt to full cycle once, and an additional 20% charge.

    I tried the same test with different devices and 2 other power banks (the other Mili Crystal), same result. Most of the time only 70-80% lang ng advertised ang kaya tlagang icharge. Swerti ka na kung kaya umabot ng 80% ng advertised, kea advice ko is kung kukuha kayo ng powerbanks kuha kayo ng may allowance sa device(s) niyo. Wag ung sakto.

    Dropped by Compex earlier Glorietta 2 (the newly opened wing) and saw the CNEG powerbank, 8400 mAH (P 1,200) . Is it any good? TIA.

    Yep. My Mili Crystal rated @2000mAh was only able to charge my 4s barely up to 55% from dead batt. (roughly only 750mAh).
    With that said, I'm looking for a powerbank for P1,000 or less with the only catch that it does'nt have that octopus-multi-port-pin.

    Any suggestions?
