I’ve ordered 100 of Anker E1 6700mAh (model A1211) and turns out one doesn’t work, it just blink alway like this
Tried pressing the power button with different patterns - no result. Charging doesn’t help. It stops after long-long time, but after you plug in any device or press power button - same again. Not output power(connected device doesn’t receive power).
Also tied to desold and sold back batteries from the board (waited around 10 min w/o batteries) - no result, still same situation.
If you have any suggestion maybe what elements I should check…
Thank you in advance!
UPDATE: Batteries voltage - 4.1V
I was gonna say reach out to support@Anker.com , but the fact you opened and desoldered it you very well may have voided the warranty
Yes, I understand that.
I’m very interested to solve it with my skills and theoretical help)
I would test each cell individually as one may be faulty. If so and the other is good maybe replace it with a known good cell
What is the correct voltage for these batteries? Right now both 4.1, I see it’s in parallel connection, so by specification for these batteries - it should be 3.8. Is it ok to have a difference for 0.3 V? Maybe they’re overcharged?
Update, tested usb device with thsi batteries - working good(took arduino for test). Connected cells to the usb.
They’re working well.
Well I think this is the first time I’ve seen a community member take apart a faulty PowerCore before logging it for replacement
I know, it’s weird, huh?)
But still, I wish I have a datasheet for the board inside it. Looks like problem with output circle. Because battery charges.
So it works otherwise and now accepts a charge. Have you checked the output soldering connections to see if there is a cold shut, as in a bad solder joint connection there?
What the ****, why, uh, you dissected art
Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. I regret to hear that your Astro E1 6700mAh doesn’t work anymore. From the video you sent, it seems the battery is indeed defective now.
