Simply not Pi compatible. In a letter from the manufacture:
Thanks for your message. The issue, we believe, is that the Pi is drawing so little current (especially when it's not under heavy load), that the battery pack thinks it is fully charged and shuts off power in an attempt to preserve the remaining internal battery life of the pack. A workaround to test our theory would be to plug in another device into the available USB port (e.g. your cell phone), while power the Pi. We believe your cell phone will "trick" the pack to always stay on and the Pi will always get power as a result. If this works, we can send you a short cable which you can loop one USB port of the pack to the charging port (full sized USB port to microUSB).

Then in the second port, you could plug your Pi and it would continue to charge without cutting out. Would...

This is a great product, just what I was looking for.

The form factor is very nice as well, a very sleek design.
