Summer in these islands usually means exploring the great outdoors and going on long vacations with family. But the problem is that in locations like the beach, mountain or camping grounds, one is not able to have a fully charged mobile phone all the time. And as you know, a cellphone is like a life saver in this day and age. We really can’t live without it.
This is where today’s most important digital accessory comes in – the power bank.

“No matter how expensive or high tech your gadget is, it is still powered by a battery that needs to be recharged eventually, otherwise it would be of no better use than a very pricey paperweight. That is why power banks have become almost inseparable from our gadgets. And while you can find a power bank just about anywhere these days, it is important to know how to choose the right one for you so as not to put your precious gadget at risk,” said Dimples Condes, country manager of Promate Technologies Philippines.
Promate shares these quick tips on how to choose the best portable power supply/power bank for your needs:
– First and foremost is you need to know about the battery size and the charger specifications of your gadget, you can find it printed on the box. This is because you need a power bank that should have at least the same capacity of your device battery to ensure that your battery gets fully charged at least once with the power bank. If your phone frequently runs out of battery, get the highest mAh power bank that you can afford so that you have enough battery stored for emergencies.
