Rosewill Powerbank RCBR-13030-WH - White, 13,000 mAh External Backup Battery Charger for Smartphone, iPhone, iPad, & iPod
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Capacity! Fantastic 2 amp charging rates! Included flashlight!

Cons: Something causes the unit to switch off during charging. Size is about that of a 2.5" external drive

Other Thoughts: I read the review about the user stating that they could not get the unit to charge past 50% and thought mine was similar. However, after unplugging the unit and reconnecting it, the unit would continue to charge. The unit seems to disconnect itself about every 25% mark. I'm not sure if that's a heat issue (seems room temperature when I notice it has stopped charging) or if it is some sort of firmware/software issue. Due to the sheer capacity of the unit, 25% is more than enough to charge my phone twice, and very quickly too.

5 out of 5 eggs Good Balance of Value and Performance 01/05/2012

This review is from: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: 990FX Chipset
# of PCIe Slots
Orientation of SATA ports
USB 3.0 native
AM3+ support
Fixed AHCI on AMD's new 900 series SB
Plays well with a junk PSU
Instruction Manual wasn't in broken or incoherent English
New-fangled BIOS with mouse support

Cons: Stigma that ASRock is a lower-end rebrand of ASUS boards.
# of Power Phases

Other Thoughts: Using it to power a 720 BE. Cores unlocked just the same as my old board, a GA-MA790x-UD4P. Seems to be a bit more stable, but could just be psycological. ACHI is pretty nice, now that I can actually use it. Plays well with a somewhat underpowered PSU, as it allows for voltage monitoring/clock reduction. I'd rather have my CPU dip in voltage and clock ~500 MHz (down from the 3.5GHz OC), than freeze up entirely due to a shoddy PSU. Nice innovation

I'm turning 75 this year and I hope this is my last build, apart from maybe throwing in an AM3+ CPU in the future. AMD has a nice system going to support so many chips on one board. I tried my old 6400+ BE in it and that worked too! Maybe throw in a 8150 FX or similar after prices drop, but I'd like to see if Piledriver will have a revision that will fit in this socket too!
