On the front of the PB-T9 Powerbank, you have the power button which also acts as an LED indicator.
At the top of the device, there is from left to right USB port 1, flashlight, Micro USB input, and then USB 2 with Qquick Charge.
The power banks LED indicator shows the battery level. When the power bank is fully charged the power button is White. Below are the different colours the indicator can change to and what they mean:
White Light – 100% – 70%
Green Light – 70% – 30%
Red light – 30%- 0
Being colourblind I have found it difficult to distinguish between the red and green light. This is not a major problem as my wife has now taken the power bank for her handbag. Leaving the house some mornings with a 40% charge left on her phone she thinks it’s fantastic she has the power bank to charge her phone up on her way to work. The uses for a powerbank are endless, recently at my sons birthday party I found myself using the power bank outside connected to a bluetooth speaker to keep the party music pumping! The Qualcomm Quick charge port works as well as you would expect depending on your phone’s battery being a quick charge phone. If your phone does not have the quick charge function buying this power bank will not make your phone charge faster. A long press on the power button will turn on the flashlight which can always come in handy.
Aukey have launched another fantastic robust charger that has certainly been put straight into action in my house. Retailing on amazon at £18.99 this power bank will keep you powered up for longer, i would definitely recommend this as a present to that person who has everything!
You can pick on up from Amazon for £18.99.
