Baseus Wireless Power Bank 8000 mAh
Baseus is one of the most popular brands in China. They have grown over the years to establish themselves as the front runners in electronics accessories. We are starting off with the Baseus Wireless powerbank. Wireless tech has become the norm in recent years with many users opting to purchase wireless chargers. It’s the same thing with power banks. Why do you need to carry around a power bank that is connected via the USB, when you can have a wireless power bank that lets you charge without any wires.
This Qi Wireless charger has a 8000 mAh capacity. It comes in two colours, Black and Red. It also has an LCD display that gives you information on how much battery is left and so on.
It comes with connected levers, where you can charge your phone while watching a movie at the same time.
Miss the wired option? You can do that too. Charge one device wirelessly and simultaneously charge two other devices with a wire.
- The power bank takes 4 hours to recharge
- It can charge an iPhone X fully under 2.5 hours
- It can charge a Samsung S9 fully under 2 hours
You don’t have to remove your thin case while charging with the Baseus Wireless Charger.
Baseus 10000 mAh
If you are looking for a solid 10000 mAh power bank, then look no further than the Baseus 10000 mAh. The first thing you notice about the Baseus 10000 mAh is how beautiful it looks. Adorned with a dotted matte finish on top and glossy exterior, this is a good looking power bank.
The glossy part of the power bank is what shows the battery percentage.
It has 3 USB Ports – 2 Normal USB’ and 1 Micro USB
Now the special part about the 2 USB ports are, each come with a different power. USB 1 has 1A Current and USB2 has 2.1A current. So what does this mean?
This means this power bank is smart enough to know how much power can be pushed out to the device that is getting charged.
It weighs 230 grams and it can be placed in your pocket. It also supports charging while discharging, which means you can charge your power bank and at the same time, charge two other devices.
Floveme Mini 10000 mAh
One of my favourite power banks of 2019 is the ones that are tiny and portable. We cover a few of these today and the first one is the Floveme Mini. This is a 10,000 mAh power bank which is the default, but the size of this device will surprise you.
It fits within the palm of your hand and it’s slightly bigger than the Zippo lighter that you see. This is a super good looking power bank. The only concern for a few people might be is the thickness of the power bank.
Here are its features.
It has dual USB ports, 1 Micro Input, 1 Lanyard Hole and 1 Power Switch. The Lanyard hole is a small hole that is put in devices around which you can tie a thread and use it as a carry-on. This makes the Floveme Mini 10000 mAh one of the best portable power banks going around.
Finger Sized Power Bank
The next power bank is a freak of manufacturing. It’s the smallest power bank I’ve seen in my life. Now the thing with small power banks is, they generally have very low battery capacity as well. This means they can charge your device for 30 odd minutes before it runs out. But this finger sized power bank is pretty incredible.
It has 10000 mAh battery and you can completely conceal it in the palm of your hands when you close your hands.
It has 2 USB ports and 1 mini USB port and 1 Type-C port.
The display on this power bank is on the side and it’s optimum use of space. The height is 8.5cm and the width is 6.0cm.
It’s lighter than two eggs in weight.
Baseus 20000 mAh
Moving on to the bigger power banks. The Baseus 20000 mAh is a powerhouse of a battery with a lot of features. It comes in two colours – Black and White.
The special aspect about this power bank is that it has 3 Inputs and 3 Outputs. Charging multiple devices and discharging while charging is not a concern with this power bank.
It has a LCD display that covers quite a bit of info. It displays real-time info of current and voltage. This power bank also supports fast charging.
The 18W power bank is so powerful it can charge the MacBook during an emergency. The PD quick charge technology on the Baseus 20000 mAh ensures that the charge lasts for longer and does not discharge too quickly.
Ugreen 20000 mAh
Most 20000 mAh power banks are big in size because they need to have a massive battery capacity to accommodate multiple charging. But they are often very bulky. If you take the Xiaomi 20000 mAh battery, for example, it has a thickness of a notebook and it’s pretty long too. Considering that, the Ugreen 20000 mAh is a breath of fresh air.
It’s a portable power bank that can be easily carried and fits in your pocket. The battery capacity is so good that one can charge an iPhone XR 5.1 times and an iPhone 8 about 8 times with the Ugreen 20000 mAh power bank.
There is a dual USB port, which means two times the output. It has a power indicator, which isn’t as good as a digital display, but it still informs.
It’s 144mm in height and 22mm in thickness and 77mm in width.
Romoss 30000 mAh
Another awesome power bank is the Romoss 30000 mAh. This is a beast of a power bank. At the outset, this is a pretty big power bank and very thick. But this is more of a multi-device power backup instead of a power bank which works for emergencies.
3 devices can be charged with this power bank simultaneously. The iPhone 8 can be charged 12.6 times on a single charge of the power bank. Even an iPad 4 can be charged 4 times.
One entire day of charging the Romoss 30000 mAh gives you one entire week of use.
It’s 2.5 times charger than a portable QC charger.
It has 3 inputs which are Micro USB, Lightning, Type-C and 3 Outputs which are USB1, USB2, Type-C.
Pover Bank 2
The Pover Bank 2 is a pretty cool power bank that has a 30000 mAh capacity. It’s one of those power banks that are reasonably priced, has maximum battery capacity has a digital LED display and also has a LED torch!
It comes in multiple stylish colours such as Pink, Grey, Blue and has options for slow charging and fast charging. The slow charging is 1A rate and the fast charging is 2A rate.
The digital display gives you the numbers on the input charge and the output discharge as well.
Finally, the LED torch can be used as a temporary torch light when you are out in the night.
Solar Power Bank 30000 mAh
Last in the list is a very unique power bank. The Solar Power Bank as the name suggests is power bank that can be powered by solar as well as normal electricity. This is a truly unique device that has numerous features that we will get to.
This is a pretty thick power bank that has a solar receiver on one side. So when you let it out on the sun, it starts charging. The power bank also informs you if it is charging through solar (Green Light) or USB charging (Blue Light)
It has 2 Outputs, 1 input and a very strong LED torch that can be used in very dark environments. It also has a SOS feature, where the light blinks. Attached to the power bank is a compass.
This power bank is also waterproof and is perfect for rugged travels out in the wild.
