For starters, I am trying to use this power pank as a portable battery for my robot:


I connected the pi to the power bank via a medium sized microUSB cable and it boots fine! However, sometimes, at irregular time intervals, I get a notification the yellow undervoltage indicator.

I think it should be fine since the pi3 requires 5V @ 2.5A and 2.4A from the powerbank should be enough since I'm not pushing the pi too hard.

Is it okay continue to power the pi with this powerbank? Thanks in advance!
