At this point, I thing everything is a rebranded MPOWLOL

Just about everything I post in this thread is.

I look for headphones that are a good deal on a daily basis, and most of what appeals to me are rebranded Mpow.  :THUMBS-UP:

Can’t beat them. I’ve been using mine for a year now and they are still working great.

One set (H10s or H12s, forgot which) just stopped charging, so I have to use them unpowered only.

Edit: Just noticed in the photos it shows 6x cells which makes a 20,000mAh powerbank not 26,800mAh, but in the descriptions it claims it uses 21700? which according to this you might receive the 8× 18650 version or the 6× 21700 version https://www.ipoweradd.com/blogs/news/poweradd-energycell-series

Poweradd is a well known charger & powerbank brand but something must have happened because seems like they’re pulling all of their products off amazon and selling them cheap under energycell store. I do remember they have been offering free stuff for positive reviews in the past, maybe same fate as tacklife?

Anyways $13.59 for a 26,800mAh powerbank with 30W PD charging is a steal, well that IF you get the real poweradd product. There is also a 15,000mAh version for $10.

Just received both of these power banks. Both arrived in brand new unopened boxes and are each about 1/3 charged. I have them on the charger now and I’ll run
them through a charge cycle and let you all know if any issues arise. Thus far, all seems perfect, but I will try to open the larger 30,000mAh version and see what
type of cells are inside it.

Thanks Richie. Im looking forward to your discharge results and 30k tear-down. Does the larger one allow for fast charging the pack? And can the pack be charged via USB C?

I’m charging the 30,000mAh PowerAdd from my large AFTIME power bank that I also recently received from Amazon. The AFTIME is sending the PowerADD 5.02v and 1.92a using
one of my USB-A to USB-C cables.

I just received mine also…. thought it was nice of them to send the extra charging ‘adapters’. I was about to post asking how you were supposed to swap them… then I found my glasses and a flashlight Wink I hate getting old ……….. Charging now.

Im not a Pessimist …. just an Optimist with a lot of experience

Good deal.

I just ordered the 059 Lite for $10 for my kid for school. Thinking I might cancel that order and order these H17s instead since they have ANC. Alas the Vipon coupon has ran out for today.

EDIT: Looks like it’s too late to cancel.

Vipon buying spree of the day:

——————-

Pixel RGB / CCT video light with tripod $20 with extra 10% clip-on. Has the generic UI with probably very bright 1% but comes with the dual mount tripod with the phone holder which is worth at least $8. I can’t remember how many of these I have owned and always end up giving them away because people say “wow that’s so cool”, so I borrow them out and never see them again.

https://www.myvipon.com/product/8701310-Pixel-RGB-Viedo-Light-with-Adjustable-amazon-coupons?sl=4b55a0b492cafee65e57a7e177e5998e&f=deal&search_tid=613eff715094bb538f212063

——————

Got one of these, very well build, very basic UI… wish I could have bought a pair at that price.

EDC rotation:
FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k

Interesting little NOAA AM/FM radio. Runs off an 18650. Around $11 for Prime members. I am pretty sure the sound is awful but for news and weather in an emergency, it might be good enough. I do believe we all have some 18650s sitting around!

Bluetooth headphones $30

https://www.myvipon.com/product/8857910-Hybrid-Active-Noise-Cancelling-Headphones-with-amazon-coupons

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B098WVX1M9

These appear to be rebranded Mpow H21 headphones.

(I know that $30 is kinda pricey for Mpow, but someone might be interested.)

That's really decent. It's ending about midnight EST. Last time I had looked at the A1, about a year ago, it was $24.95. Kevin sure loves those XP-G3 emitters... uses 'em in so many Aurora lights.

“Today’s coupon code has run out.” Original price of $17.99 made that $1.80 a really sweet deal. No wonder why it sold so fast.

2 pack Motion sensor LED light for $15. The brand is reputable and seems like they want to push sales for this new item.

Appears to be using an internal 18650 due to the rectangular body, and if so they should be able to be upgraded. The main problem with the flat ones are the internal lipo battery, they are just designed to fail within a few months.

https://www.myvipon.com/product/8841896

Thanks for the heads up. Just purchased these under counter LED lights. My wife has been asking for LED lighting just like this.
She wanted them for a closet and one under a counter in the kitchen. I’m sure she’ll be happy when they arrive.

Is there a sensitivity adjustment for the motion detector?

Our order has not arrived yet for another few days. I’ll be sure to post an answer to your question as soon as we test them out.

Doubt it. The bigger pyro modules have trimpots to be able to adjust things like that, but the smaller ones are more “integrated” and are preset.

You are getting about 9.6 watts charging your bank using your current setup. I charged mine using a Pixel phone charger with the Pixel supplied USB-C to USB-C cable and get 18.4 watts charging the bank. It maintains that through most of the charge cycle then tapers down to about 4W before termination.

I cant be sure if the charger is authentic and I would rate the build quality as average.

Were you able to crack yours open yet or measure capacity?

I made a mistake it’s labeled 26,800mAh just like yours. I haven’t been able to get one of the ends off yet, but still trying without damaging it. But I was able to recharge it fully using
a Knofarm 48 watt USB-C wall charger. The power bank required 107 watt hours of power to top off at almost 4 hours of charging.

KNOFARM 48W USB-C
