Yoobao M4 10,400 mAh Powerbank Price is Php 1,450 at Lazada PH and Novo7Tech Stores Nationwide

Here's another TechPinas-Tried-and-Tested powerbank that I highly recommend. Check out the Yoobao M4, which is now available at Lazada Philippines and at all Novo7Tech stores nationwide.

Priced at only Php 1,450, Yoobao M4 is one of the more affordable 10,400 mAh powerbank models out there that already comes with two charging ports and an extra-bright LED flashlight. There are more budget-friendly powerbanks with similar capacity that are available in the market but most of them lack those two features that I mentioned.

Price update as of June 27, 2015: I've just been informed by our friends from Novo7Tech that they've decided to slash almost 50% the SRP of Yoobao M4 bringing its price down to just Php 750! At that amount, I think this powerbank is already an absolute steal!

M4's simple packaging complements the design and functionality of the product.

All the items - not that they're that many - are neatly placed in this plastic container.

Charge the Yoobao M4 via its microUSB port. It takes around 5 hours to give it a full load.

The powerbank has a polycarbonate case, which makes it lighter and - unlike those with metal shells - less likely to scratch your other gadgets when placed with them in a bag.

Yoobao M4 has two USB ports for charging smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. One has a regular 1A output while the other supports 2A, which means that it can charge gadgets with 'Fast Charging' feature.

"Mark, it says on the box that it's a 10,400 mAh powerbank and that's true. Many cheap powerbanks that are flooding the market don't give you the declared capacity," Sir Oliver of Novo7Tech - the official distributor of Yoobao products in the Philippines - told me during out meeting last month.

All that, along with the fact that Yoobao M4 is protected against overcharging and electric surge, truly makes it worthy of my two thumbs up!
