  • Q.Why does PB05 stop charging right after plugging in device when using alkaline batteries?
    A:PB05 is designed to serve as a simple battery discharger and the voltage of alkaline batteries tends to drop dramatically by its nature while discharging. Devices such as smartphones require high peak current to allow their voltage booster IC to function normally so this is the reason why some lower quality alkaline batteries can’t maintain charge to your device for long. We suggest choosing alkaline batteries from well-known manufacturers or as an even better alternative, choose rechargeable NiMH batteries.
  • Q.Why does it charge my device less than 20% while using alkaline batteries?
    A:Because PB05 is simply a battery discharger by design. Hence, the charging rate depends on the quality and the capacity of alkaline batteries used or whether your smartphone or device is being used simultaneously while charging. When you use alkaline batteries, PB05 can serve as an emergency power solution which can only provide 10%-20% power to your smartphone. Our recommendation is to use NiMH batteries to provide you with better charging capacity.
  • Q.How much power can the PB05 provide when using NiMH batteries?
    A:Ideally, the PB05 with 2 x 1800mAh NiMH batteries can provide 20%-35%* of charge to your phone.
    *this result may vary depending on your operating conditions and your phone.
