Nowadays, mobile phones have become an indispensable part of our daily life. The frequent use of mobile phones brings about the problem of shortages of battery power, so portable chargers are needed. When away from home, you can always use power banks for charging, which are absolutely necessary for going out and traveling. Power banks could be used 2 ~ 3 years commonly, and there are many pitfalls when people use and maintain power banks. The proper maintenance can prolong the service life of power banks. Below are four maintenance tips to properly use power banks:

1. Pay Attention to Waterproof and Moisture-Proof

When a power bank is accidentally falls into water or exposures to moist air, its electronic components and wires would be corroded. Thus, a power bank is best placed in a dry environment when not in use for a long time.

2. Beware of Rough Usage

When a portable charger is used, try to avoid throwing, knocking or falling off it. Rough use of a portable charger will destroy the internal circuit boards of it.3. 

  • 3. Proper Placement Environment

  • Do not put the power bank in places where the temperature is too high. The high temperature will accelerate the aging of the internal components of the battery, shorten the service life of the electronic components and destroy the power banks. Similarly, do not store a portable charger in places that are too cold. If a portable charger works in an ultra-cold environment, moisture will form in a portable charger interior and damage the circuit board when the internal temperature rises.

  • 4. Use a Matching Charging Device

  • The USB connector must be matched, because the devices corresponding to various USB data cables are different. In regular use, please pay attention to the difference of the output current and voltage of a portable charger. In order to use a portable charger to charge your devices normally, please use the matching USB data interface. Choosing a power bank that is compatible with all kinds of the mainstream charging protocols is ideal, because you don’t need to find the individual chargers and cables to charge the individual devices.

    The most portable recommended power bank is the Zendure 18W 10,000mAh slim power bank. This portable charger is compatible with USB charging devices and supports almost all kinds of devices such as mobile phones, tablet computers and cameras. In the past several years, Zendure started online retail from Amazon, and gradually entered shopping square in Dubai, airport duty-free stores around the world, high-end digital chain stores and so on, it’s welcomed by more than 100,000 fans worldwide.

  • PD or QC? Both are OK.

  • In the market, some of our devices support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0, but others support USB-PD. For this power bank introduced today, it supports both. That is to say, you could use it to charge Quick Charge 3.0 compatible devices up to 80% in the first 35 minutes, which is 4X faster than conventional charging.

    Thanks to USB-C Power Delivery, it helps to charge your iPhone X, iPhone 8/ 8 Plus from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes and powers your Nintendo Switch for 6 more hours of playing, as well as fast charging compatible Android phones.

  • Slim and Portable

  • In general, we like electronics and accessories that are slim and light enough to save space and carry easily. However, most of the power banks in the market have a large and heavy body as they pursue higher capacity and more batteries inside.

    This 18W portable charger only weighs 229g and is as slim as your mobile phone. You’ll enjoy carrying it anywhere and putting it in your handbag or the small pocket, even in your hand. You can get one on Zendure.com or Amazon.

    At the same time, when charging the power bank itself, please select a reliable charger. Poor quality USB chargers without current protection may cause permanent damage to power banks. The tips above are smart ways to maintain your power bank to ensure the safe usage. Follow these tips extend your power banks’ life.
