Wanna have a playmate with your gadgets / devices? Introducing a new player in the tech market, namely Playground.ph with their tag line “Play better than anyone else”. Well they sent us the review units for this review and yes it will be a raffle too – a total of ten(10) PB400 Powerbanks will be given away! Hooray! Without further ado, I’ll start the unboxing and review of the said product:
What’s inside the box?
The box contains 1 powerbank, 1 USB cable, 1 User Manual and 1 Playground.ph warranty card.
It is a simple, stylish, lightweight and good textured powerbank in the front and back that you will make you think that the price of the it costs more. Actually the texture resembles the backcase of the Samsung S5 from what I can remember. Also the powerbank also reminded me of the Buffalo hard drive’s flex connect USB cables, which is similar to this one
|The USB Output for charging your devices and the USB Input for charging the powerbank
itself is hidden in the rubber wire on the top side of it.
|The lower portion of the powerbank consists of the non-detachable rubber wired micro-USB port
(good for people who always lost their cables hehe)
|This is where the USB is slided to keep the wire intact in the powerbank|

During the test for two weeks, the powerbank gave the output performance it promises to give. I’m quite a heavy phone user and I charge 1 – 2 times a day as I play music, play some vids, check emails, check social networks apps and turn on the WiFi most of the time. It was able to charge my Nexus 5 up to 2 times throughout the day (well my phone a bit power hungry as it is about 2300mAh in battery size, different phones will have other power capacities that this powerbank can charge up to different times [in some lower capacity phones it may be upto 3 – 4 times] ). The charging output is real good, it’s like just using any charger that will charge your phone in the expected time you needed it to, not like other powerbanks that has slow charging speeds.
The Playground.ph PB400 Powerbank 4400mAh is very affordable, good quality build and easy to carry power-station for your gadgets. It let you play much more with your devices without ever needing to find an outlet and save you from much hassle. I think almost anyone with their devices can afford this powerbank as the price tag is only at Php690 each, which makes it a great contender in the powerbank market right now.
