2 Things to Consider Before Buying a Power Bank in 2018

Before buying a power bank, you need to consider a few things. Would you buy a Ferrari to drive it in the mountains? Would you buy an old Nokia to take pictures? Would you buy an HD TV to watch 4K content? Just because something is the thing that you need doesn't mean that it's the thing that you need. Every power bank won't work for your needs, know that before buying a power bank.

Ask Yourself 2 Things:

Is Time Money to You?

If so, are you willing to pay extra to get quicker charging that most of the modern chargers provide? Or are you looking to limit your spending and are perfectly okay without having features such as Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0? Perhaps you are on a budget and are looking at the cheapest product that delivers the most power. Depending on what you value more, the product you need will differ. 

Zendure A2 is tiny. It will fit in your pocket. It will charge an average iPhone 3 times and an average Android twice. It’s cheap with a price point of less than $30. Zendure A1 is even cheaper. It costs just under $15.  It will charge your phone once. Looking for more juice on a budget? A3 costs under $40. Looking for something that can charge your iPhone about 8 times? Zendure A5 will do that for under $55. 

But perhaps the time is of value to you, and you are looking for something with power and fast charging? A8 QC should be your choice so! It comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and with 26,000 mAh battery that will fulfill all of your needs, whether camping for few days or whether you need to charge your laptop. You can charge your iPhone 6s 9 times with it.  

What Are Your Needs?

Are you looking for space or are you looking for power? Will you need something that can charge your laptop too? Perhaps you want to charge many devices at once. Before buying a power bank, you need to consider this.

Now, Zendure devices come with crush proof material. Dual-injection molding and a shock absorbing central belt make it one of the most durable devices on the market. So whether climbing or on an airplane, Zendure has you covered regardless of what model you choose.

Where are you going? Are you going on a date, short day trip or on the weekend adventure? That’s what you have to ask yourself.

On a date? You won’t have a backpack. You only have a certain amount of space. Zendure A1 and A2 fit into pockets without being noticed at all. A short day trip? That sounds like the A3. A two-day trip or a laptop and phone to charge during the day? A5 is a perfect choice. A weekend trip or four devices to charge? A8 QC without a doubt. 


You can't use a Fiat engine to power a Ferrari, just like you can't use the A1 to power your laptop. Depending on your situation, you will need a different device. Chose wisely, or have them all.
