Hello Patricia! The PN989 just looks like more stylish (Xiaomi like) compared with the 999. 🙂

Hi, Yhanne! Thanks for the updates! It looks like you are getting the average output or atleast near the expected performance of the powerbank. The battery gauge will show a more accurate reading soon after a few more charge-discharge cycles. The gauge stays longer at 99% becuase it is known as trickle charge. Not all times the charger is suppling the same current/ampere to the phone/powerbank or more collectively, the battery. It is higher for the first phase of charging and will get lower and lower until the battery is charged completely. So, to gauge the performance accurately, use only one device to benchmark the pb or atleast those who have nearer battery capacities so that battery drain will show relatively to each other devices being charged.
As long as the unit does not shut off by itself when the 5.0v 1A indicator is not indicated, you are still good to go. Of course, provided that you are not encountering other obvious indications of s faulty unit (i.e. terrible/long charging times, high temperature when device is in used). I hope it helps. Thanks!

Hi yhanne, I suggest you fully deplete the powerbank’s battery then observe if the readings will get accurate. How do you know that the readings are wrong? As long as you get the average mAh output as computed in this article, you are good to go.
Regarding your comment, I can’t follow your legend and computation.

Hi Dhonald! Nagtry ka naba gumamit ng ibang cable?

Hi Jericho. what do you mean sa chinarge ang dalawang port? Anyway, sorry ngayon lang ang reply ko. Kumusta na powerbank mo? ibinalik mo ba sa Lazada?

Oh see, please let me know later if the slower pressing trick worked. 🙂 Thanks Noel.

Hi Noel! Did you try what I told you last night? If it did not work, try a little more slower, as fast pressing twice will surely activate the flashlight. Regarding that, I haven’t yet tried to charge my bluetooth headset with my pineng as for me, it is not the ideal thing to do (because the ampere rating of the powerbank is too high and it may shorten the battery life span of that small-battery packed headset). Well, it is just my opinion and it depends on the headset you are using.
I am afraid I couldn’t try it myself now since I do not have my PB with me, i l left it for my parents use in Tarlac.
I am just wondering if it does not power on by itself when you connected your headset?

Hi Noel, try a single long press. I do not have my pineng with me here but it should power on (and off) this way.

Hi, good to hear from you again, Clea. Are you charging your phone while your power bank is being charged too? If it is, it may had contributed to the issue you are experiencing now.
Or else, you’ve got a unit with a mild defect that you hadn’t noticed before. Also try not to fully insert the USB cable on the power bank USB port, It may do the trick, at least for me for one of my cables here. 🙂

Hi Ms. Jennifer! Normal lang po na uminit yung adaptor but not to the extent that it will cause you harm (nakakapaso na talaga). It happens when you charge your phones/gadgets too. As the charging process is near completion, heat should subside. Sabi mo din na hindi naman umiinit yung powerbank mo habang chinacharge, so no sign of defective unit. That should be fine. And, Try to use an adaptor with higher ampere rating, maybe the adaptor you are using can’t supply the required rating of the powerbank kaya sobra siya mag heat up. 1A is ideal. 🙂

Hi Clea, I’m sorry but that sounds like the 2.1A port is already damaged. I am also experiencing problems with the 2.1A port but am still able to charge devices from it. Well, it is my fault because since I connected USB speakers on that port, it started to charge devices relatively slower than before. In your case, can you think of any reason that may cause that?
» Posted By Raz On January 19, 2016 @ 10:16 am
Paibaba minsan cherry mobile minsan Asus na charger. Pero I’m making sure na atleast 1A siya para di naman ganun kabagal magcharge. Best pa rin to check mismo yung nakasulat sa adapter kung 1000mA (1A) ba siya o ano, iba iba kasi talaga.
Bakit kasi 969 kinuha mo. Yan tuloy walang flashlight. Haha. I think its time na nga to create a new post. Medyo busy (or busy talaga) kasi the past months kaya mukha na abandonado tong blog ko. Haha.

Hi Annie, depende kasi yan sa gamit mong adapter. I am using 1.5A adapter at around 10-12 hours ang charging time ko. If you’re using a lower ampere adapter/charger, like lets say 500mA, baka mag dalawang araw na hindi pa fully charge. Haha.

That will be nice. Thanks Kristel!
» Posted By Raz On December 19, 2015 @ 1:26 pm
Wow. That’s a really good mileage. 15% ka ba pag nagchacharge? Baka mababa yung rating ng adapter na gamit mo. If that’s from an old unit, usually 500-700mA lang yan kaya mabagal talaga. I suggest use a higher rating adapter, 1A (recommended) or higher to shorten charging time. Check the supplied adapter of Flash 2, it should suffice.
Sobrang late kasi ng reply ko. I’m really sorry. I’ve been easy the past few days.

I am not that aware about the adapter being sold by Pineng. But yes, for sure it will be a good one for use with your PB. Just make sure it is really a genuine adapter from Pineng. About 4-5 charges for Flash 2 Kristel. 🙂
No worries, at sorry now lang ang reply ko.

Hi Crisbev, Kahit ano pong klaseng 5 volts na adapter na ginagamit mo din sa phone or tablet mo.

Masaya akong nakakatulong sa pagbibigay ng impormasyon. Thanks for this comment Jose! 🙂

Naoovercharge ko din siya minsan pero hindi ganun katagal. Once every 1 week ko siya chinacharge. Yun frequency ng paggamit ko. So far, ok pa rin naman.
Yung new batch ng Pineng powerbank na directly sold (and fulfilled by Lazada), 1 year service warranty na sila. But those (like what we had, from Lucky HR), walang warranty. Try mo lang din maginquire directly sa Lazada kung ano ang pwedeng gawin.
» Posted By Raz On October 27, 2015 @ 12:34 pm
Kung ganun, Hindi nga normal niyan yung sudden na pagdrop ng percentage at yung heat.
Pag two phones kaya? Well, I suggest send it for replacement na sa lazada if ganun pa rin after mo mairecharge. If bumili ka sa seller na si LuckyHR, 7 days replacement lang kasi then no warranty na siya.
Add ko lang. Kakatingin ko lang ngayon, meron na palang direct na binebenta ang Lazada. Mas okay na yun since 14 days replacement then may 1 yr service warranty. I’ll update this article on weekend.

Hi Mathew. So far hindi ko pa naman naexperience yan. Wala bang running apps, i mean opened apps/games habang nagchacharge ka, iinit talaga pag ganun. I’m not familiar about telpad, ilan ba ang batt capacity nun?
Nakailang charge ka na ng powerbank mo? Nag iinit din ba ng sobra pag chinacharge mo?
» Posted By Raz On October 22, 2015 @ 5:50 pm
Hello Robie. Sa pagkakaalam ko, may overcharge protection naman ang powerbank na ito. Gaano mo ba katagal siya naovercharge?
Kung ganoon na ayaw na mag-on (tama ba), wala tayong magagawa since limited lang ang warranty ng pb na ito from Lazada. Especially if you bought it from Lucky HR. Kung under replacement pa, pwede mo siyang ipalit nalang as defective unit (I doubt na magaapply ang sentence na to sayo.).

Hi Jayron! I’m glad that this blog post helped you.
The are two possibilities. First, did the product arrived sealed with the security sticker still unscratched? Second, If you do not have a stable internet connection, It might lead to a reason that you had unknowingly/intentionally clicked the verification button twice. Thus, returning that message. Even refreshing the verification page will lead to this.
For now, while waiting for Lazada’s response, just test the unit if it performs according to what is expected. Note for any signs of faulty item like too much heat generation, low output capacity, etc.
And, did you buy from Lucky HR? The unit reviewed in this post is the one supplied by Lucky HR.

Hi Coween! Glad you decided to purchase one! Here are the answers to your questions:
1. Yes. Just use your phone’s cable. For faster charging, use 2.1A output and 1A for slower (but better for the battery) charging. You can interchange ports as often as you want.
2. In regards of charging the powerbank itself, there’s an “IN” indication on the side of the power bank. Use the supplied microUSB cable and connect it to your existing adapter.
3. It is advisable to use the powerbank until below 1% of its capacity (or until it can’t charge a device anymore) for the first 2 or 3 charge-discharge cycles ONLY. You can even do it only for the first charge cycle if you are confident that the battery meter is already accurate and the power bank does deliver the expected output. After this, charge the powerbank as how you usually charge your phone. I mean, charge it when the battery is at 15%. I presume you are doing this with your iPhone 6 to prolong its battery lifespan.
For more info, you can visit the article about “Things to Know About Powerbank” linked in this article.

Ok lang yan. Madami din kasing factors kung bakit hanggang 6 charges lang. But, it should increase after the charge/discharge cycles required for calibration. Regarding naman sa charger/adapter na gagamitin, any 5V can do. Di ako sure kung ilang ampere (i.e. 1 ampere or 1000mA) ang supplied charger ng 5s mo. When using 1A adpater, it will take about 20 hours more or less to fully charge the power bank. No worries about over charging, the bank will automatically shut off when fully charged but of course, unplugging it after charging is better.

Enjoy your Pineng power bank! 😀

Hi Christine! About 9 full charges in full efficiency for iPhone 5S. Pero normal lang kung maka 7 full charge ka lang if factory charge pa yan. Maximum efficiency will be attained after 2 – 3 charge/discharge cycles.

Medyo mahaba pa nga yung supplied cord compared sa ibang mga PB.

Oh sorry, It’s only a test site Henry, it’s not publicly available. I have no plans yet to migrate to paid plan on Hostinger, since I am satisfied on what my current and cheap host provides. 🙂
