They come in all shapes and sizes with different prices. You may want something lightweight and easily transportable, or something bigger that can charge all of your devices. You can even do not want a portable charger, especially if you are a person who is not very connected with technology.

However, the power bank can also be something useless even for those who have many gadgets. The example, I have a friend who is a both a consumer and bought a portable charger with input for multiple devices. He rarely leaves the house, even your office is less than two blocks from his residence. Then, only the friends who visit end up using the charger.

On the other hand, I have a friend who lives outside the home, mainly because of studies, and more than once had problems because of the battery of your computer or cell phone have just. Even so, not bought even a portable charger.

You have to weigh your routine, the time that is away from sources of energy, how many gadgets you have and how important it is that they are always loaded. So, you can decide if the portable charger/power bank is something that you can invest, but not without knowing some more important information.

How Do I Choose a Portable Charger or Power Bank?

The first thing that I want to ask is in what situations you will find yourself with these chargers. You may only need a little load to your phone to spend the day, or perhaps you may need a full charge to tablets and laptops. At this point, it just becomes a math problem to how much power you need.

The energy in a portable battery charger is typically measured in milliamperes (mAh), and these devices will typically be described with a number saying how its battery capacity. The output real power can be less than a few times.

Another thing to consider when you charge your gadgets is to find a portable charger that can provide amp more high, that is, the flow of energy to the appliances. Otherwise, they will not be loaded correctly.

Some chargers portable will also have a charging cable detachable attached to it, so that you do not need to worry about charging wires to all sides.

Example of Purchase of Laptop Charger

For example, suppose I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 with a battery of 2,100 mAh battery and an iPhone 5 1,440mAh. It is logical, then, that any portable charger you buy should have at least as much capacity as your smartphone. This way, you can recharge it fully from a state fully discharged.

Now, let’s say that I also have a Kindle Fire HD and a Bluetooth speaker. The first one has a battery 4,400 mAh battery, while the latter uses 1,500 mAh battery.

Assuming that you would like to be able to recharge all three devices, you will need a charger with a battery of 8,000 mAh, remembering that this charger will have to have different power cords to connect to different devices.

Where to Find These Data?

If you’re not sure what battery your phone, tablet, or other gadget uses, you may be able to discover on the website of the manufacturer in the technical specifications section or even in the own battery of your device.
