buyer’s guide we will cover the features that separate the top power banks from
Indians can often be obsessed with brands so if you want to know which power
bank brands are the best in the India market, here are our top 10 picks.
Size of the power bank
You do not want your power bank to be heavy and bulky. That
is because power banks are mostly used during travels, hikes etc. and you
really do not want it to add to the weight.
Also, there maybe times when you have to carry it around in
your hand (like when you care charging your mobile) so the lighter and more
compact the power bank is, the merrier.
Apart from that, either a rubberized finish or textured
casing is important as well since it gives you a strong grip and prevents the
power bank from slipping out of your hand due to sweat etc.
I seriously would hate it if my I have to wait 4-5 hours or
even more for my smartphone to charge. This is why I always prefer carrying a
power bank that supports quick charging and so should you.
Most power banks will come with a 5V/2.1A input and this is
good enough for quickly charging the smartphones.
The quick charging feature should be 2-way. This way even
the power bank will get charged in a jiffy.
Power banks that do not have a high input can take up to
8-10 hours for a full charge depending on their capacity (sounds like forever,
Number of ports
On a general scale, most of the power banks come with 2
ports but if you use multiple devices that you cannot live without like a
Smartwatch, mobile, iPod, Laptop etc. then you can also opt for power banks
with 3-4 ports.
But keep in mind, not all ports will offer quick charging so
make sure you do pay close attention when plugging in your mobiles and laptop.
Keep the lower powered ports for smaller devices.
The power of a power bank is measure in mAH. Note, that
while the power bank is said to be of 20,000mAH or 10,000mAH they have a lesser
A good 20,000 mAH power bank like the Mi model mentioned above will have a capacity around 13,000mAH which is good enough for 4-5 charges mobiles like OnePlus 6T.
Similarly, 10,000mAH power banks come with a capacity around 6,000-7,000mAH which should charge a OnePlus 6T at least 2 to 2.5 times.
The more the power, the more devices you will be able to charge without having to recharge the power bank so if you use a lot of gadgets, I would suggest going with a 20,000mAH power bank.
If you are
a travel freak or do not want to miss out on your Instagram uploads, a power
bank is more than a luxury.
As utility of smartphones continue to increase every year due to improved features, their battery life still remains quite average.
So to keep them up and running throughout the day, you really do need a good power bank. And now, you know exactly which model to buy and features to look for.
