Won't charge from power bank
So i just bought a power bank for my phone so i can recharge it during outdoor hiking trips where im not near a power socket for several days.
The problem is that my SGS3 wont recharge using that power source. I have tried another one and the same issue is with the other one.
When wired to a power socket it charges perfectly so its only when connected to a power bank that is a problem.
With the first power bank i tried, it didn't seem to charge at all. The new power bank which i just bought soes charge it but only for a few seconds.
Any clues what to do?

Re: Won't charge from power bank
I guess that it's mostly a phone issue.
I have a Sony Xperia P. There are about 3 other Xperia P-s around in the office. All of them, and a few other devices charge fine from the powerbank. Even my phone does, when I don't need it that much (like when I have socket nearby). But while on the go and I really need it, it fails mostly.
I plug in the cable, the phone shows charging, but within a few seconds, the powerbank switches off, and that's all. First I thought it's the powerbank's issue. But it looks like the phone rejects the charge after a few seconds, making the powerbank to switch off. Rebooting doesn't help. I haven't tried reinstalling de phone yet, but since it's quite a new install (stock 4.1 ROM without rooting), I'd reject that option.
