    Everyone with a smartphone knows how frustrating it can be to reach the afternoon with diminishing batteries. With the price of external juice packs falling quicker than smartphones, there’s little excuse not to avail yourself of a back-up power source. And some folks will choose to pick up those model with huge capacity. A Taiwan mobile user has brought an external battery packs with a capacity of 24000mAh which is made by a Shenzhen company. It turned out to be a counterfeit device that packed with two little sand bags instead of battery cells. It can still be chargeble, because you still get an old dusty battery cell packed inside the juice pack, we guess the capacity should be 2400mAh, not 24000mAh. We have seen the same case happen before, a portable hardisk stuffed with USB flash drive and metal junk. So just don’t get petty advantages on those super low-cost, unknown Chinese-made battery packs, it’s properly not a genuine product …

    Chinese products are scary indeed. Why don't they just make a smaller case instead of filling up with sand, apart from making the pack heavier? If the sand bag is loose, then the battery pack would make some noise? Really a bad fake product.
