Pyxis 10,400 mAh Powerbank from Cherry Mobile: Unboxing and review

I’ve been on the lookout for an affordable powerbank ever since my first powerbank died on me. I wanted something with higher mAh, reliable but still at an affordable price. I’m also looking for the terms of warranty, I learned my lesson from buying my powerbank in HK which conked out after only 3 months but can’t return it to the store.

Anyway, one of the most recommended affordable powerbank is Xiaomi, but original ones are only available at Lazada and are ALWAYS sold out. I chanced upon the Cherry Mobile store in 168 Mall last week and saw this Pyxis Powerbank. It’s 10,400 mAh print was calling at me, and I also noticed its semblance to Xiaomi’s powerbank.

First thing I asked was the price, it’s Php 890. A power bank with 10,400 mAh of juice is pretty reasonable for me. I was quite satisfied with the answers from the owner of that Cherry Mobile store after quizzing him so I bought one. He was not pushy and he’s also using it for his Samsung Galaxy Note 2, same phone as mine.

Review

I like the built of Pyxis T10, it is simple and sleek. There are 3 indicator lights which tells how much charge it has. Also found on the same side are the USB, micro-USB slot and the power button.

Charging the powerbank takes 12 hours according to the Cherry Mobile store, but I tried charging it at home and it only took me around 9 hours. That one smaller light will blink while charging and will stop once it’s charged.

It takes 2 hours to fully charge my Samsung Galaxy Note 2, with my phone turned off while charging. I also tried it on Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and Iphone 5, works on them too.

The only con is that the cable that comes with the box is too short. I just use my Samsung cable if I need a longer cable.

Overall, it’s a good powerbank and still at an affordable price. If you can’t wait to buy the cheaper Xiaomi 10,400 mAh powerbank, then just add a little extra and you’ll have the Pyxis T10 from Cherry Mobile.

By the way, the Cherry Mobile store at 168 Mall is also on Facebook, I think it’s quite popular, Cherry Angel. Check out the page for stock updates.

  1. I got a HaiPower powerbank as a winning. Almost the same with yours but after a few weeks, I feel that the cable is not working properly. It tends to get loose and it doesn’t charge properly.

  2. Wow, sounds promising. How heavy is it? I’m supposed to get a new powerbank in the next few days right before my trip.

  3. No doubt powerbank relieves the stress of running out of battery on ones phone. It’s a wonderful invention and I do carry it around in my bag anytime I am going out.
    Thanks for this wonderful review as well.

  4. This is cool! how many charging cycles can it take? I own a wopow one and it takes about 4 charging cycle. It’s charging my phone so fast two, doesn’t take an hour. Or is it just me exaggerating. lol Good find though. It’s cheaper

  10. Maybe they should provide more cable options. Though it’s nice that it works well with other cables.

  21. I think power banks for cell phones are one of the greatest inventions! I don’t know what I will do without extra portable charger for my cell phone!

    [Reply]

  22. That is really impressive. I could sure use one of those as I often run out of charge!

    [Reply]

  23. It’s nice that it comes in different colors. It would look cool having one.

    [Reply]

  24. Sounds like a great product, I have been meaning to buy a powerbank for a while now but i keep forgetting or thinking I will just use my boo’s one but I really need my own.

    [Reply]

  25. Power banks seem to be very popular over the last year or two. Which is cool, I don’t have a big one like this, I have a smaller version one and I simply love it. I wish I had one sooner, it’s really great to have around with you when you’re out and about and not able to charge your phone or any electronic where ever you go.

    [Reply]

  26. Maybe I need to try one of these. I’ve had a couple chargers which has worked a couple of times, but then they don’t want to charge. Doesn’t help much if they aren’t charged. Thanks.

    [Reply]

  27. I love my powerbank and use it a lot. This brand comes in some awesome colors!

    [Reply]

  28. I love by my power bank. My phone is always dying when I am away from home.

    [Reply]

  29. I never heard of these before until just recently. Kind of wondering how everyone liked them first before I decide to go check one out for myself. Thanks for sharing your opinion and the great pics.

    I could do with one of these, my phone is always running out of power. I would like to see a longer warranty on this product though, six months doesn’t seem very long.

    [Reply]

    Badet Reply:

    6 months warranty is actually good because most powerbanks don’t come with a warranty.

    [Reply]

  31. Ang affordable na nitong powerbank mo ha!

    Badet Reply:

    oo nga, kaya napabili na ako 🙂

    I suggest you buy from a reputable brand. Also read other reviews of other users muna :). So far satisfied naman ako sa Pyxis and Xiaomi. Yung Pyxis, gamit ng daughter ko, nabagsak nga nya, medyo lumuwag lang yung casing pero working pa rin naman.
