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.

Cherry Mobile P3 and Cherry Mobile Q1

Cherry Mobile P3 and Cherry Mobile Q1 are the two latest phones from Cherry Mobile. After lusting over Cherry Mobile P1 for months now, my curiosity has passed and decided to just keep my two existing Nokia phones. It’s still quite popular even today, and I bet, the two latest Cherry Mobile phones, P3 and Q1 will also be popular among students and those who are looking for affordable back-up phones.

Cherry Mobile P3 is like an updated version of Cherry Mobile P1. Cherry Mobile P3 is the colored version of P1. Selling price is Php 1,290.

Cherry Mobile P1, I want!

I want a Cherry Mobile P1! Cherry Mobile is a new player in the mobile phone market, its edge is offering affordable dual-sim phones, no wonder it has became popular in a just short period of time.

If you’re intrigued on how this phone looks like, it’s very small and has different colors. It looks like more of an MP3 player than a mobile phone. The reason why I want it so bad is because it’s only Php 999. Yep, nine-hundred-ninety-nine!
