bored369 Posted August 31, 2016 Share Posted August 31, 2016 (edited) So my Pineapple Juice 4000 finally started to burst at the seams: http://imgur.com/a/eRMZ6 I've had it since launch and been running it pretty hard and long hours and had started to notice it swell, but now it's to the point I don't think it's safe to continue to operate. So I went on a search to find a replacement that: A. I trusted the battery company reputation (edit* not saying I don't trust the hak5 batteries, I fully do. It's batteries that I can purchase elsewhere I normally don't trust because they lie about mAh and amp output regularly.l) B. would still fit in the nano tactical case C. would still use the nice usb adapter After a lengthy search on Amazon looking at various slim battery packs and trying to find one that met those needs, I found this: Anker PowerCore 5000https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EKXR67M It took a week for them to even start to ship it to me, but arrived day after they finally did. I must say it's awesome!! http://imgur.com/a/pgmaE Claims 5000mAh so extra 1000mAH (which anker is pretty good about being legit on those numbers but i'll have to wait to full charge to test that portion) Claims up to 2amp output (PortPilot detects as 2.1amp) The curved back actually seems to make it fit even nicer into the tactical case (but my memory maybe jaded because of the time I've spent with the swelling on the Pineapple Juice 4000) Hak5 team don't worry about a replacement Pineapple Juice 4000 but if you want to I never say no to extra battery packs ;). I'm not that concerned about it and don't think it's really defective honestly (it does still work and charges fine). I think (purely IMO) that's just what happens to batteries when you used them in enclosed spaces for long periods of time and expose them to high heat (both using the nano and charging which almost 100% of the time was in the tactical case).
