The efficiency of this battery is around 68%-80%. The internal circuit board is 90% efficient, this accounts for power lost through circuit heat and voltage conversion (this is standard for external power bank chargers), which is up to 5% above the industry average. Energy is also lost within the charging cable and the device being charged (approximately 15-20%).
1) When the battery is charging your devices, a steady blue light will indicate that your device is being charged. 2)When charging your Rock PLUS, a steady red light will indicate that your Rock PLUS is being charged properly. The Rock PLUS normally takes ~ 4 to 5 hours for a full charge

Use the provided micro USB cable to charge the Rock PLUS by plugging it into a USB power adapter and the other end into the micro USB port located on the Rock PLUS. *When charging your Rock PLUS , approximately 20% to 35% of the external battery’s capacity will be consumed due to power lost from heat produced by circuit, the conversion of the voltage and the cable charging/your device. Industry average is currently 35% for the efficiency rate.
