Im loving my pb2! My previous power bank holds 8× 18650s and is big, bulky, and doesnt charge my phone as well even though it claims 2 amps output.

This pb2 fits in my pocket, my phone charges fast, and its got a slick design. I often fidget with the magnetic door while charging my phone and its very satisfying for some reason.

Same.. I like mine too.. it even charge my Samsung wireless charger quickly… very good product.

I got one of these for review from Banggood! Here’s the review link and there’s a promotion and code for those who want to buy one (all non-affiliate).

BTW, I do like this PB2 a lot Love

I do have a question though! I wanted to buy some batteries with large capacity (3400 or 3500mAh).
I’ve been thinking about the Sanyo GA, but recently saw the Samsung 35E and started wondering which would the the best.
Do you have any input on any of these? The batteries will mostly be used to work with the charger and, occasionally, to put in flashlights (non high drain)!

Any help is appreciated Wink Thank you!!

Just take the 35E.

At most with a single cell, you are going to be drawing 3.5A, and the 35E is great at that much current.

So actually, just pick whatever is cheaper in this case.

Thanks for the answer BlueSwordM!
Actually I think that – at least in AliExpress – I’ve seen the Samsung cheaper that the Sanyo!
I may pull the trigger on a couple of them!!!

BTW, has anyone tried unprotected button top cells? I only have flat tops, so I don’t know if the button tops will fit as well!
Thank you again Wink

Is my PB2 faulty?

I have good working LG HE4 for these but the charger sometimes get wonky and restart the charge as if my usb power aren’t capable of delivering power.
The USB out couldn’t charge my Oneplus 5T so I assume it cannot draw out more than 1A but I’ve read others charging modern high drain phones with ease

either my cells are not good or the pb2 is faulty?

But overall love the PB2 as it charges my cells really fast when it’s working properly. Cells that are low resistance are able to get topped up 100% real quick without heating the cells.
