Yoobao Powerbank 15600mAh YB665 Review


 The Yoobao 15600mAh powerbank comes in a pull-out box roughly the size of a small hardbound book. Here's the product description:

Have you ever missed a phone call, lost a game on your mobile phone, or haven’t completed watching a movie on your tablet because you run out of battery? Worry no more. Introducing the new portable charger - the Yoobao Power Bank. With a whopping 15,600mAh capacity, it is designed to recharge your gadgets while on- the-go. Package with eight switched connectors, you can power and recharge your iPhone, iPad, ipod, Samsung, Nokia, HTC, Blackberry, and other mobile devices anywhere. The five LED indicators show the current capacity of the Power Bank. 


The YooBao YB665 powerbank comes with a micro USB cable and 5 adapters for different gadgets. You get a Nokia charging pin, a mini USB adapter, an iPod/iPad 30-pin adapter, a PSP adapter and for some reason, a micro USB adapter.

The powerbank itself is a bit on the hefty side and has a black glossy finish. Very prone to fingerprint smudges but the unit feels solid to the touch. You can probably swing it at someone and it'll knock them out cold.


It has 5 LED indicators to show you how much juice is left inside and it comes with an LED bulb you can use as a flashlight. I don't really know why that's there.

It comes with 2 ports so you can recharge 2 gadgets at the same time. When facing upward, the port on the left is for phones and the one on the right is for tablets (this is according to the manual) but I tried to swap my gadgets and they seem to recharge just fine.

Charging the powerbank takes about 8 hours. I haven't fully tested how many times it can recharge my gadgets so I'll update this post when I do.


The charging adapters work fine although I had a hard time plugging in the iPad adapter so I used my iPad's cable instead. The micro USB adapter works fine too, I was able to charge my Blackberry and Note 2. I was happy that it came with a PSP adapter and it worked on my unit.

Pro's:

  • USB and adapter are of good quality.
  • Recharges 2 gadgets at a time.
  • Holds a lot of juice.
  • Powerbank feels solidly builty

Con's:

  • Adapters need force to fit in the cable.
  • Powerbank is prone to fingerprint smudges.
  • Heavy. The thing feels solidly built but is heavy.

Overall, it's a good device. Very useful specially for long trips.
