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.

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.

Neon accessories haul

Whenever I go to 168 Mall in Divisoria, I make it a point to maximize my visit there. I check out all the clothes, bags, shoes, kids clothes and toys and of course accessories! I’m a suki in one of the stores there when I was still selling accessories, now that I no longer sell, I still visit and buy from her for my personal use.

My loot, N-E-O-N!

Neon headband, stud earrings, and bracelets all under Php 300

Gyu Gohan Japanese Sizzling Beef in 168 Mall

It’s our Divisoria day earlier! Jeff tagged along because he needed to check out fabric stores in Juan Luna and Ilaya for his DIY project. After his errand, we decided to roam inside 168 Mall, I bought a few accessories while Jeff just checked out some cool China-made house gadgets like alarm systems, flashlights, speaker stands, and cooking utensils.

It’s about lunch time so we headed to the new wing’s food court which is located at the 5th Level. You know how I dislike dining in food courts, so whenever I’m in 168, I always eat at McDonald’s, Jollibee, Chowking or Pizza Hut. But when I saw this new Japanese stall, Gyu Gohan, I decided to be more adventurous and try it with not so much expectations on the food.
