According to surveys and reports found recently, power bank in Singapore is one of the most bought mobile accessories.
As the mobile phones in today’s time are lot more than just a way to take and make calls, battery of your phone going dead when you are in the middle of a pricy deal or even just about to catch your favorite pokemon character is not so uncommon, and is really very frustrading at times. This has personally happened to me and if you’ve also experienced the same, I’m sure you know the kind of frustration that I’m talking about.
This is where having a power bank comes as a savior.
While there has been an astonishing rise in the sale of power banks in Singapore over the last several months, there are so many who have not yet bought any and there are people who bought but are not satisfied with the one that they bought. In both of these cases, there are several extremely important things that you need to keep in mind before you buy a power bank in Singapore so that you do not end up buying a low-quality/high-priced/in-appropriate power bank and regret shedding your hard-earned money for nothing but mere disappointment
As an experienced power bank buyer, successful seller of various mobile accessories and consultant to various companies and individuals about taking wise buying decisions, following are some of the most important things you must need to know before you buy a power bank. While these tips are most relevant for those looking to buy power banks in Singapore, they are equally relevant (if not more) for anyone, whether or not living in Singapore.
- Capacity – Determine Your Usage:
A core attribute while buying power bank is its capacity, which is measured in milli Ampere Hour (mAH). This means that the more mAH a power bank has, the more capacity its got.
Many people, however get overwhelmed by this and prefer to buy as much capacity of power bank that they can possibly find, which can prove to be a big, bulky and costly mistake.
When buying a power bank, you need to determine your specific requirements, particularly answer following questions to yourself:
-What device (s) that you are going to use it with?
-How much of battery capacity (mAH) does your device have?
-What is your average mobile phone use and if you really drain your mobile phone’s battery out too quick.
The reason you must answer these questions to yourself is because your choice of power bank must entirely depend on the answers you came up with. For instance, if your device has battery capacity anywhere between 1700 to 2300 mAH (which is what most of the iPhones and other popular phones are supplied with), the power bank that you’re looking to buy should be a minimum of 2300-3000 mAH for charging it one time. Notice that the capacity of your power bank has to be at least 25% more than the actual power required by your phone as the output voltage of the power bank and phones usually differs a bit.
While its easy to just look at the most capacity of power bank and go for it, more capacity in many cases would mean more cost and can also be more in terms of weight and size, which is why a decision of how much of capacity you need in the power bank that you buy becomes very significant.
Gamers, for instance require a high capacity power bank because of the high battery that drains out while playing the games such as MMO games or pokemon go.
Is a great option for powerbank in Singapore that you can consider buying if you’re a gamer and looking for something that is relyable, small in size and has huge capacity to ensure that you never run out of battery.
- Charging options:
One important attribute that you must look before you buy a power bank is available charging options and whether or not the power bank that you’re considering to buy has multiple ports.
For instance, Most current power bank chargers have built in USB charging capability but Some of the older models don’t have this feature. Having USB port in your power bank is really useful as you can connect a range of devices this way whether apple, Samsung, xiaomy or others. You must ensure that the one you buy does have this available.
Also, as we’re carrying more than one devices with us now such as laptops, tablets ETC, you must check before you buy if the one that you buy does have multiple ports or not.
Especially if you’re buying a power bank with large capacity, having multiple ports can be handy if you’d like to charge multiple devices at the same time.
Here are two power banks that we recommend that are high quality and have both these features:
- Price and authenticity:
As power banks in Singapore have become exceedingly popular and hot selling over the months, many fake companies have entered in market with substandard power banks that are cheap and low quality. At the same time, there are sellers who are unnecessarily increasing the price according to them and willing to suck your money by deploying marketing gimics. While buying power bank in Singapore, its important that you be careful about the product that you’re buying and that you’re only buying from an
