About power bank

Power banks are used to recharge battery-powered electronic devices on the go. More or less a portable charger, portable power banks can be small enough to fit into a pocket or really large for more heavy use. They can be used to charge cell phones, tablets, and even laptops with the right capacity.

Power bank charger batteries are made with lithium-ion or lithium polymers. Lithium ions are generally cheaper but limited in mAh capacity. Lithium polymer cells on the other hand can be larger and don’t experience memory effects over time.

What is the Difference Between a Power Bank and a Portable Charger?

There is no difference between a power bank and a portable charger. Both names are generally used to refer to the same device. Portable phone chargers and portable battery chargers are other names used to refer to a power bank.

How Long Does Power Bank Last?

The best power banks have an average lifespan of between 1.5 to 3.5 years or 600 to 1000 full cycle charges and depletions. This could be more or less depending on build quality and battery capacity. Some of the best portable chargers have specially designed circuits that maximize life span. Other actions like storing it in a cool dry place and not charging it too often also contribute to a longer lifespan.

How Many Times Can A Power Bank Recharge a Phone?

This depends on the mAh battery capacity of the power bank and your phone. The higher the capacity of the power bank, the longer it can recharge your phone. The circuitry also plays a role in the recharging duration like apple portable chargers and anker power banks are known to have good build quality. Therefore, they may recharge your phone a little more than other brands with the same mAh capacity.

An average power bank with 10,000 mAh capacity is enough to fully charge an average mobile phone of between 3,000 mAh to 5,000 mAh at least once.
