The Wonderful World of Power Banks at USB2U

The Wonderful World of Power Banks at USB2U

In the days of fast trends, information at your fingertips, the ability to compare prices at the click of a button and more, it’s getting increasingly difficult for businesses to compete. Not only are a lot of industries saturated with competitor companies, large and small, they also have to contend with a customer or client who can compare all of their features, benefits and prices, easily, and quickly. It means there has never been more need for marketing and brand awareness. Niche networking events have increased, and businesses are having to physically go out and grab the attention of new audiences, so how can you make an impact, and ensure that impact lasts? With branded technology of course, and we particularly recommend a power bank.

So, what exactly is a power bank?

In short, power banks are accessories that can charge up your smart phones, laptops and other portable electronic devices. You charge a power bank up, and it ‘stores’ the energy, so when your device is running low, you simply plug it in to transfer it. They are great for people who are constantly on the move and who use their mobile, or devices, consistently throughout the day. It means they don’t have to worry about carrying around their chargers, or whether there will even be a port they can use to plug their chargers in! They are clever little things, power banks, and anyone who uses a smart phone for their work, to write emails, catch up on their social media, play games (remember the battery-zapping Candy Crush addiction?!) will find a power bank useful. Its invention lies with the demand of smart phones to be faster, capable of more, and their slim design. This in turn meant that batteries on mobile phones weren’t lasting as long as they used to. The power bank has become a fashionable alternative to the battery cases that compromised the slim line look of mobiles, such as the iPhone and the like.

The Many Uses of a Power Bank

Fun, quirky and cool, to sleek, elegant and corporate, there is a power bank for every taste, every need and almost every device, and we have so many power bank designs available, from ones with built-in torches, to ones with built-in speakers!

Who Would Need a Power Bank?

The question should probably be; Who wouldn’t need a power bank? With modern day advances in technology, more than three billion people worldwide now use the internet (Time), and 80 percent of them access it from smartphones (Smart Insights). While the scope of technology widens, so does our need for it to be accessible all the time. For those that are constantly on the go, whether it be at meetings, or those that use multiple technology in their work and home life, the need for something as convenient as a power bank is increased also. Individuals who work in fast paced business environments, rushing from one room to the next, dashing out the get the train and working on presentations on their journeys, to those that attend events, festivals and more, will all find a power bank an extremely useful tool.

What Size Power Bank is Best?

In one of our previous posts, we created a handy infographic to show you what size power bank is suitable for the technology it needs to charge.
• 2000mAh – 2200mAh power banks will charge the average smartphone to full once.
• 3000mAh -4000mAh power banks will charge the average smartphone to full 1.5 – 2 times. Obviously, it depends on the size of the battery in the device itself (some newer smartphones such as the iPhone 7 have larger, more powerful screens demanding more battery power to keep them running!)
• 8000mah – 10,000mAh power banks will charge the average smart phone an impressive FIVE times, as well as charging larger devices such as iPads and other tablets at least once.

Are Power Banks Safe?

There has been much speculation on the safety of power banks. After all, there is a lot more to a power bank than their outer casing. We’re more than happy to inform you that yes, all power banks available from USB2U are safe to use. Each and every one of our high quality power banks are tested in our own factory, from splash tests to drop tests, and no power bank, or any of our products for that matter, leave our premises without our full confidence in their safety. We can supply copies of our compliance testing, as well as MSDS reports for overseas shipping by request and all our USB2U power banks are supplied with a two-year warranty. Check out our post on power bank safety tips for extra peace of mind.

Personalised Power Banks vs Non-Branded Power Banks

Finally, the crux of the matter- personalised vs non-personalised power banks. Our theory is, if you’re thinking about giving a current or potential client a power bank, something that they will hopefully use weekly, if not daily, then brand it up. That is an opportunity to not only get in front of them, and their colleagues, but hundreds of other people within their business industry. Having something memorable and eye catching on a power bank, like a logo, slogan or mascot is a sure fire way to ensure that you make a lasting impression and will be thought of time and time again. Our power banks start at 2,200mAh in capacity and can run up to 10,000mAh, so would be suitable for so many people.
