“Who doesn’t love using their gadgets? In this day and age, not having a smartphone is almost like having a handicap for a working professional. Still, no matter how expensive or high tech your gadget is, it is still powered by a battery that needs to be recharged eventually, otherwise it would be of no better use than a very pricey paperweight. That is why power banks have become almost inseparable from our gadgets, said Dimple Condes, country manager of Promate Technologies. “And while you can find a power bank just about anywhere these days, it is important to know how to choose the right one for you so as not to put your precious gadget at risk,” she added.

Here are some quick tips on how to choose the best portable power supply/power bank:

  • Know about the battery size and the charger specifications of the gadget; this can be found printed on the box. This is because one needs a power bank that should have at least the same capacity of the device battery to ensure that the battery gets fully charged at least once with the power bank. If a phone frequently runs out of battery, get the highest mAh power bank that can be afforded to have enough battery stored for emergencies.
    Promate has power banks of different capacities, such as the Tag-6 with 6000 mAh; Tag-9 with 9000 mAh; Zenith-10 and Polymax-10 both with 10000 mAh; Tag-15 with 15000 mAh; and the Promate ProVolta-21 with 20800 mAH.
  • Depending on the number of devices carried, choose one that has several ports or cables so you could recharge more than one device at a time, saving you the trouble of having to wait for each one to finish.
    The ProVolta-21 for example has several USB Ports with LED Flash so you can charge up to 3 devices simultaneously. The ProMate PolyMAX-Uni meanwhile includes replaceable Micro-USB and Type-C cables for Android gadgets as well as a Lighting Connector for your Apple device.
  • With its costly price tag, consider gadgets as a valued investment so it’s best to get a power bank that comes with a power-cut power feature in the event of a short circuit.
  • Lastly, it is better to spend a little more on a power bank from a reputable brand to save further costs.
