Powerbank nowadays are a necessity. Most smartphones couldn’t last one whole day even if it’s fully charged. So having a powerbank on your purse or backpack provides security.
However, not all powerbanks are created equal.
In fact, with the advent of smartphones and tablets, powerbanks have become ubiquitous. It seems that they are being sold a dime a dozen.
Because of this, it’s been quite hard to find a really good one–a powerbank that packs a lot of power while looking good at the same time.
The Power Fort Powerbank does exactly that and a little bit more!
It packs 5600 mAh, and it comes in a compact and stylish package. The powerbank is equipped with four LED lights, which indicate the battery percentage.
Here’s how to know the battery power level:
- LED 1 Flash=Less than 20%
- LED 1=20%-40%
- LED 1, 2=40%-60%
- LED 1, 2, 3,=60%-80%
- LED 1, 2, 3, 4=80%-100%
So, this basically means that if the four LED lights are on the powerbank contains 80-100% battery power level.
The package also includes a touch pen, one USB cable (Standard to Micro), User’s Manual, and Registration Card.
Although it only comes with one USB cable, you can practically use any USB charger for this powerbank. Below, you can see how I use my lighting connector to charge my iPod Touch 5th:
I mainly carry two devices when I’m out: my iPod and my S3 Mini. Most of the time, I no longer bring a lighting connector with me. With this, I can only charge my S3 Mini.
If you have multiple devices, I suggest investing in buying one USB cable with multiple chargers at the other end. For example, in Greenhills, there are USB cables that have a lighting connector and a Micro USB at both ends. This way you don’t have to carry a lot of cables.
When using the powerbank for the first time, you need to charge it for a full 8 hours.
After that, subsequent charging would normally take 6-8 hours. So, make sure to give it plenty of time to charge. You can charge it before you go to bed– that way it’s ready when you leave the next morning.
Although it’s a small device, it’s quite thick compared to the thin smartphones.
Prices of the Power Fort powerbank might vary. But it normally sells around P2500. It’s definitely a good deal. I have one powerbank which is priced at P1500 with 1500 mAh.
Considering its design and the batter power, the Power Fort is a great buy! It’s a great companion for your mobile devices.
