This is a generation of Smartphones. Today everyone in this world have at least one smart phone in their pocket and they are completely dependent on it. A smart phone can do a lot of things when it has charged batteries. Many mobile phone have a battery life of less than a day and they may run out of battery at a crucial time making you feel handicap. Here the power Bank comes into play.
A power bank is a device made to provide you with the charging for your batteries when you are on the go. The power bank comes in all kind of shapes, sizes and capacities and there is plethora of options, but choosing the right power bank for your smart phone is not an easy task. Not every power bank will suffice your smartphones battery needs. You need to choose the right one for your mobile phones on the basis of some factors. Don’t know what things to look for while buying a power bank? Don’t worry below I have mentioned the points on how to choose the right power bank.
- First and foremost, you need to know the battery rating of your smart phone. If you do not know your mobiles battery size, then read the specification of your mobile on the cover box or in the manual. You can also find it printed on your battery.
- Chose a power bank having size (mAh rating) equal or more than that of your battery size. For instance, if your mobile battery size is 2000 mAh, choose a power bank which will have a battery of 2500 mAh or 4000 mAh. If you buy the 4000 mAh model, it means that you’ll be able to charge your smart phone at least twice. In any case, opt for the one with the highest mAh capacity.
- Also check the ‘current draw’ of your mobile phone. Many older smartphones draw a current of 1 A but the newer ones now draw a current of 2.1 A. Chose a power bank which will have two ports for charging, one the 1 A port and other the 2.1 A port. If your power bank is able to provide a current of 1 A and your smartphones draws 2 A of current, then it will take more time for the bank to completely charge your device.
- Check what type of cell is the portable charger using. Is it Lithium Polymer or Lithium-Ion? The lithium-ion batteries have a better charge density and is less expensive than the Lithium-polymer. The lithium-polymer on the other hand is essentially same as the Li-ion batteries. The Li-Poly batteries are thin, safe to use and have a better battery life but are also expensive. So here the budget decides on which type of power bank to go with.
- Chose a power bank that comes with a power cut feature that will cut off the power in the event of a short-circuit. Also look for a bank that had auto cut power feature to cut off the power automatically once the charging is done. This will prevent it from getting overcharged.
