Power banks are a modern and innovative option for charging your smartphone or other electrical device while you’re on the move or away from a power outlet. Here at Wearable Imaging we have first-hand experience with using power banks – they are one of the most popular items with our customers, and are also used by a majority of the staff around our office.
So what exactly can a power bank do, and why are they worth buying?
Before we go into the details, did you know that 90% of American adults own a cell phone, 64% of which are smartphone owners? Smartphones are useful for chatting with friends, working from home and many other tasks, which is probably why 1 in 4 of us checks our phones every half hour.
As our phones get more powerful and we use them more often, the only setback is that batteries begin to drain much more quickly. And this is why useful devices like power banks have now become so popular.
Why do you need a power bank?
Power banks are especially ideal if you like to use your smartphone to stay in touch while you’re camping in the countryside, half-way through a long commute, or are attending an all-day event like a golf tournament. Despite the fact that power banks hold enough power to completely recharge a mobile tablet or a smartphone like the iPhone 5, they are also small and lightweight enough to be carried on you with no inconvenience. All of the power banks sold here at Wearable Imaging will slip comfortably into a pocket or bag, so you’ll never again miss that important call while out of the house or office.
At Wearable Imaging, our power banks can be charged through a regular power outlet, a laptop USB port or an in-car charger. This gives you the convenience to charge your power bank whenever you need and wherever you are, although it does take three hours to charge a power bank to its full capacity. However, once a power bank is fully charged it will hold its power for months at a time, providing a back-up power supply for when you need it most.
What types of power bank are available?
Power banks come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colors. Here at Wearable Imaging some of our most popular power banks are cylindrical, credit-card shaped, and small rectangles. Our range varies from eye-catching colorful power banks to luxury aluminum units that come complete with a leather carrying pouch.
Power banks are available to buy from most major retail stores, but promotional products suppliers like Wearable Imaging offer a less expensive alternative for bulk quantities. We can also personalize your power banks with a printed or laser-engraved logo, which makes for an excellent client gift or promotional giveaway item.
