Charge your phone battery on-the-go with a power bank

We are living in an age where gadgets and devices rule our lives. The biggest issue here is keeping these devices on and charged. They best way to do this is to find high quality power banks for sale. No matter where you are or what you are doing, a power bank will ensure that your devices stay on and connected.


Our smartphones and devices are getting more advanced all the time. This advancement means that we can do more with them, but it also means that our devices need more power to keep them running. This is relatively easy to do when you are near a power source, but what happens when you are constantly on the move or in an area that doesn’t have power?  What happens when you experience another, all too familiar, power outage in your area? The answer is to have a portable charging unit that can be charged and then stored when you need it, this is exactly what a power bank charger is.


Power banks work by utilising a special external battery that has its own sealed casing and comes with a USB adapter (some have more adapters) that you can connect to virtually any smart device. This includes phones, tablets and portable media players. The power bank portable charger is small enough to fit into your pocket. All you need to do is carry the power bank and the adapter with you and you will have powered devices no matter where you go.


There are basically 3 types of power banks— Universal Power Bank, Solar-Charged Power Bank and then the older-style Portable Charging Cases.

Universal Power Bank

These are pocket sized battery units that connect to your device via a USB cable. When the power is out you plug the charger into your device and you are good to go. It’s basically just a secondary portable battery that can be charged separately and stored. If you are traveling anywhere, then you will never leave home without this.


Solar-Charged Power Bank

Solar powered power banks for sale are a step up from the Universal Power Banks. They are basically the same thing but you are able to charge the device from the sun’s rays. If you have no power for an extended period of time, then it doesn’t help to have a Universal type bank if you can’t charge it. A solar-charged Power Bank works with photovoltaic panels which slowly feed the internal battery when placed in sunlight. The drawback here is Solar charging is quite a slow process, but worth it if you have no power at all.


Older-style Portable Charging Cases

Before they came up with the universal power bank, the charging case was the answer. This is basically a protective cellphone case, which is a good idea to have anyway, that actually charges your device without you having to worry. This casing works by adding an extra battery pack to your device. The casing houses an extra battery and your device essentially has two batteries now. This issue here is the battery will only work on a specific device that the casing is designed to fit around and it increases the size of your device. This just isn’t an option when the devices we have are already quite bulky.
