8 Things You Must Know Before Buying A Power Bank; Don't Make Mistakes

   
    A power bank is simply a battery backup that is enclosed and designed with circuitry connections that enables it to be charged and also charge other electronic devices; some of the basic or extensive circuits designed and embedded in most power banks are the charging circuits, indication circuits, alarm circuits and the overcharging circuits. These are the most common and basic circuits inside the power banks we see around us today.

Power banks are very important Gadgets in our lives and most of us can not do without it. No thanks to the epileptic power supply we experience in our society. Power banks have made it possible and very convient for us to use our phones the way we like hoping that it will get recharged with a power bank once the battery level drops down. Though the combined usefulness and importance of power banks to our daily life cannot be overemphasized, there are still some notable numbers of disadvantages and dangers associated with buying the wrong power bank or using the right power bank wrongly. To be on the safer side and avoid making mistakes that you will regret later, its vital for you to gather all the valuable information or at least the basic information about power banks, how it works and the right way to use it.
This piece of information is not meant for only those that are about buying power banks but also for those that already have power banks with them because you must surely get to know something that hitherto you don't know. For the fact you are reading this article right now, it means you want to get some information about using power banks. I won't take much of your time as I am going straight to the main points right about now.

What To Check Out For When Buying A Power Bank:

1. Check the battery capacity and ratings of your phone: 
This is actually the first thing you should know before ordering for a Power Bank. It is vital to know the capacity of your battery. Your phone battery is rated on mAh (mili Amp per hour) and the output voltage required for charging most mobile phones including smartphones is within 3.5V (Volts) to 5.0V (Volts). Just check the backside of your mobile phone battery right now and see the ratings on your battery. It is on this base that you will make a better choice for the Power Bank capacity you should go for.

2. Check the Power Bank ratings/configurations and capacity:
I know by now you have known your phone battery's rating. If your phone battery is rated more than 3,000mA, then you should go for power banks that are rated 10,000mAh and above for you to be able to get at least two full charges when your phone completely runs down. If you go for let's say Power Bank within the range of 2000mAh and 8000mAh, you will not get one complete full charge at times. I hope you get the trick? The lower the mAh rating of a Power Bank, the lower the charging strength and longevity. But if your phone's battery rating is below 3000mAh, a 5000mAh Power Bank should be okay for you. However if you want it to last longer, you should go for the once rated much higher.

3 Check the brand:
Don't make the wrong choice that you will eventually regret later. There are thousands of different Power Banks in the market and online stores. They sell different kinds of power banks both the good ones and the not so good ones. Go for know brands like Samsung power banks, injoo power banks, LG power banks and other notable brands and make sure you don't buy from huckers and people that you don't really know their market identity. Go to known online stores like jumia. Don't forget to check the ratings and configuration before placing an order. Meanwhile, if you can't buy in from online stores, there are credible offline stores in your state that you can enter and buy your original power banks.

4. Avoid Buying Extremely Cheap Power Banks:
Getting a cheap power bank is not bad but when it is extremely cheap, my dear think twice. Some of the power banks in the market are refurbished ones made of inferior electronic materials.

5. Check out for number of USB charging Ports
In some power banks, there are more than one USB port for connecting more than one device for charging simultaneously. Though it's usually seen in power banks with higher rating. If you can get it, it will be a bonus and advantage as you can easily connect two phones or a phone and probably your mp3 player to be changing at the same time.
6. Check out for indicators and others
Charging indicators are really important as it gives you the visual understanding of how your power bank is charging and when it gets fully charged. Avoid buying the one with now LED indicatorsindicators. There are even ones that has small screen that shows how many hours remaining for your power bank to get full chard or go down. Some have torchlight and some brands even integrated an fm radio receiver in their power banks. So the choice is yours but while choosing, remember to note that quality is your first priority.

  4. Hi Mike, if you are buying from physical stores, bring out the powerbank and feel the weight in your hands. A 2,000mAh power bank should be considerably heavy. Also don't buy those ones with display I.e. LCD display. Most of them doesn't last long.

    If you are buying online for example Jumia or Konga, I will advice you to order for it and pay on delivery. You can use the link I provided to buy online. After feeling it, u can pay. Yes it is possible.
