Default External battery drains FAST!!!

Hello, I have a 10400mAh external battery (powerbank) from Xiaomi and when I charge my Note 2 which uses a single cell 3100mAh from 1% to 100%, it charges pretty quickly and after charging it, the external battery still leaves 3 indicating lights out of 4 (which is reasonable since one light represents about 2600mAh). However, when I charge my Onda v971 tablet with a battery capacity of about 3600mAh (I believe that is also single cell), it uses the remaining volume of the external battery and it only charged from 1% to 67%. In both cases, to be fair, I have turned of the Wifi and reduce the background process and activities to minimum using Greenify when charging it. Therefore I am wondering what makes the tablet "consumes" that much battery instead of charging it... Any ideas. Thanks.

Try to install BatteryDoctor, it controls well the usage of your battery!

Luck!

Just wondering but does that really work since it's an external battery?

What capacity (mAh) do you want?

I have tried it but it seems that the problem was caused by another factor. I did a factory reset to see if it could correct it.
