The box has 4 batteries, two usb outputs and a small flashlight.
The specifications are:
I got it from gearbest that sells it on Amazon and ebay: amazon.com amazon.co.uk, ebay.co.uk.



How does it look

DSC_5723

The power bank is delivered in a white cardboard box.

DSC_5722

It contains the power bank, a usb cable and a manual.

DSC_5725

All connectors and some indicators are placed on one side of the box.

DSC_5728

The micro usb is the charge input and the two other usb connectors is in parallel for usb output. I would have liked a more visible marking of the connectors.

DSC_5729

The led strip shows charge state, but there is no indication when the output is on.
The button us used to turn the output on and to turn the flashlight led on/off.

At one end is a small hole, it contains a 5mm led that can be used as a weak flashlight. With the size of this power bank the runtime is very long (Manual says 250 hours, but I did not check).

Clear labeling with input and output currents and voltages.



Measurements

I could not open the box, i.e. there is no measurements directly from the battery, only from the input and output connectors.


FlourEon%201A%20load%20sweep
FlourEon%202.1A%20load%20sweep

The first test is a load sweep to get an idea about the performance. The two outputs looks identical and can both deliver 2A without any problems.

FlourEon%20USB%20out%2010ohm

The output looks very fine at 0.5A with about 7000mAh capacity.
Note: Specifications always list battery capacity, output capacity will be 70% or less compared to that, due to the voltage difference between battery (3.7 volt) and output.

FlourEon%20USB%20out%202.5ohm

Even at 2A the box works perfectly, but the capacity is slightly reduced (This is expected).

2.5ohm

The output has 24mV rms noise and 156mVpp noise at 2A, this is fairly good.

10ohm

At 0.5A the noise is down to 8mV rms and 64mVpp, also a good value.

FlourEon%20charge

The charge curve looks like a classic CC/CV charge curve and the batteries are charged with a bit above 10000mAh (Matches the specification of 10400mAh).
It takes about 9 hours to fully charge the power bank and requires a usb power supply that can deliver 1.5A as the specifications says.



Conclusion

This box looks good with both Apple and usb coded outputs, a fair amount of capacity, low noise and no problem supplying 5 volt at full load.
I like it.



Notes

The usb box was supplied by gearbest.com for review.
