【Review】First thoughts, Floureon 7800 mAh USB power bank

First thoughts, Floureon 7800 mAh USB power bank

davidj723 Bar

Because I have a need to keep my Moto X fired up for several hours at a time, I looked into USB power banks, AKA external battery packs.

Of course, I asked here and got 2 recommendations:

Anker 5600 mAH

EasyAcc 10,000 mAh Brilliant Dual

After scouring eBay and Amazon, I went with the Floureon model HQM-304 7800 mAh power pack. Basic specs:

  • 2 USB power out ports, nominally 1 A and 2 A @ 5VDC
  • 3 Samsung ICr18650-26F, 3.7V, 2600 mAH, Li-ION cells for a nominal 7800 mAH. Maybe.
  • 4 x 2-5/8 x 7/8 inches
  • 6.155 oz (for comparison, Moto X is 4.59 oz.)
  • 4-LED power level indicator (25, 50, 75, 100%)
  • LED flashlight (press button for >3 sec. to turn on or off, prevents accidental deployment)
  • Lightweight USB std to USB micro cable
  • Tiny instructions sheet in tiny type

Why this one?

Floureon® 7800mAh Portable Ultra-High Density High Capacity External Battery Backup Charger Power Bank

Everything at this point in my ‘review’ will be like sliding around on a muddy hill in dancing shoes.

  • Are those really Samsung cells? Or Chinese knock-offs?
  • Is the output really 1A / 2A? The YouTube review shows ~0.5 and ~0.7… but you can’t tell what the test load is, and the power bank won’t pump out more amperage than the attached device accepts.
  • Will it last longer than a week? (I’ll update this thread with any later info on that front)
  • Why is the name “Floureon,” as in ground-up grain you use in making bread? Were they trying for the somewhat more modern-sounding Fluoreon?

Recharge capacity:

Nominally, if all 7800 mAh were available for recharging, you’d get ~3 recharges for the Moto X’s 2200 mAh battery. But energy is lost to circuit consumption and heat during recharging in both the Floureon and the Moto X.

In reality, I was able to milk just under 2 full recharges in partial increments (based on percentages reported by Battery Notified BT Free on the Moto X) :

  • 20% top off (IOW, plugged in the Floureon when remaining % = 80)
  • 41% top off
  • 52% top off
  • 80% top off
  • a final partial top off that netted another 4% before the Floureon cut out

With the Floureon at the now-depleted state, it took 7+ hours to charge it using the Moto X 1200 mAh charger. The Moto charger ran hot – Floureon’s input spec is 5VDC @ 1A.

How long can I use the Moto X with the Floureon plugged in?

Dunno. My use calls for using the Moto X as a slide-show screen. For a few moments, I installed the Battery Monitor Widget that was suggested in another thread by expert carlh… but I didn’t understand a single thing it was reporting… so I don’t know what electrical draw I’m creating by watching the slide show for hours.
