What size power bank do I need?

Ever found yourself staring at a dead phone battery with no outlet in sight? It's a frustrating scenario, especially in today's world where our phones are essential tools for communication, entertainment, and navigation. 

That's where power banks come in, offering a portable solution to keep your devices charged and ready to go. But with so many options on the market, choosing the right size power bank can feel overwhelming.

Understanding power bank capacity

The key to selecting the right power bank lies in understanding its capacity, measured in milliamp hours (mAh). This number indicates how much power the bank can store. It's like a fuel tank for your devices – the higher the mAh, the more charges it can provide.

Here's a breakdown of typical power bank capacities and their capabilities:

Low Capacity (Up to 5,000mAh): These compact and lightweight power banks are ideal for topping up your phone once or maybe twice. They're perfect for everyday use when you need a quick boost on the go.

Medium Capacity (5,000mAh - 9,000mAh): This range offers more versatility, usually providing two to four full charges for your phone. It's a good choice for moderate users who want to stay powered up throughout the day, especially during commutes or short trips. One example is our FLEX7 Li-ion Power Bank Plus, offering a compact design and 6800mAh of power – perfect for keeping your phone alive on short camping trips.

High Capacity (9,000mAh and above): These power banks are built for extended use, offering multiple charges for your phone, tablet, or even some laptops. They're ideal for travel, camping, or situations where access to power is limited. Our FLEX10 Li-ion Powerbank Plus boasts a massive 9,000mAh capacity, ideal for keeping all your devices charged during multi-day adventures.

Choosing the right size for you

Now that you understand power bank capacities, consider these factors to determine the best size for your needs:

Your device's battery capacity: Check the mAh rating of your phone, tablet, or other device you plan to charge. This will give you a baseline for how much power you need.

Your typical usage: How often does your device's battery run low? Light users might be fine with a low-capacity power bank, while heavy users or those venturing off-grid will benefit from a higher capacity.

Portability: Consider how and where you'll carry your power bank. If you prioritise portability, a smaller and lighter option might be better.

Beyond capacity – additional considerations

While capacity is crucial, it's not the only factor to consider. Here are some additional features to keep in mind:

Output ports: Look for a power bank with multiple USB ports to charge multiple devices simultaneously.

Fast charging: Choose a power bank that supports fast charging technology for quicker recharge times.

Safety features: Ensure your power bank has built-in safety features like over-charging and overheating protection.

Weather protection: If you’re planning to charge up your electronics in the great outdoors, make sure to get a power bank protected from the elements.
