Top ten power banks for the year 2017 - 2018

Top ten power banks for the year 2017

 Despite mobile companies doing their best in providing a massive battery backup on their phones, There has always been and always will be a craving from every consumer for a little extra – Let’s be honest we are just too lazy to plug in and charge our phones every now and then and thanks to the power bank revolution this dream has finally come true, So pick up a bag of chips while you laze down your couch and scroll through the below list for the top ten power banks currently in the market.

Please note that this list was created by actually testing and running the Power Bank – Real test capacity Turing test on all the power banks.
I've mentioned the below test which was used to determine the top 10 picks for this list

How to calculate a power bank's real capacity?
For calculating the 'Real Capacity' of power bank capacity x 0.74x 0.85

For Ex: 10000 mAh power bank. 10000x.74x.85 = 6290 mAh (This will be your average /standard output of 10000 mAh power bank) assuming it to be 85% efficient.  10000x.74x .90= 6660 mAh (90 = 90% efficient .85 = 85%) What is efficiency? In simple terms, Layman terms, there are losses in transfer from one battery to another on common losses being due to circuit losses. So, in reality a 10000 mAh power bank will give below 6500 mAh capacity. That means a Note 3 battery of 3000/3200 mah can be charged only twice or an Ipad retina (6400 mAh odd) can be charged fully once. This is the principle on which power banks works

Now that we’ve got the technicality of the power bank and the standard used to measure the efficiency of a power bank is cleared, let’s cut the chase and get to the top 10 power banks out there.





10 ::  ADATA PT100 10000mAH




ADATA PT100 10000mAH Power Bank (Black-Green)


It has two outputs, 1A and 2.1A. The 1A usually charges phones and the 2A is for tablets. The 2A can be used occasionally on phones to get quicker method of charge (two times faster). Note: Don’t use 2A for phone often; it can be harmful for the battery. Simple LED torch not very bright, but good enough for an emergency usage. There is also a 1year ADATA warranty for it. You can register your product on their website. There are some cons as well which needs to be mentioned like the fact being the power bank is a bit heavy and bulky. Can be a little difficult to carry around, But I would say the benefits outweigh the cons.

9 :: Ambrane 13000mAh


Ambrane Power Bank P-1310 White and Black


The Ambrane 13000maH is a decent Indian manufacturer product providing a 13000mah capacity, Charge will stand for month even if it not used. It has both 1amp and 2.1amp port 4. Can charge your phone completely from 0 – 100% at least 5- 6 times (The phone used to validate this test had 2100mAh battery), Can fully charge the power bank in 5hrs (using my 2.1 Amp Samsung charger), Also has an LED torch (not very bright but enough light in case of emergency)

8 :: Asus ABTU005 10050mAH Zen Power Bank




Mimicking the looks of the Xiaomi power bank, Pretty affordable coming from a big company like ASUS It is fairly small in fact small than i expected it to be (It is not as small as credit card) It has 2.4 A output so it can charge your phone fast It has a metal finish infused with a nice sturdy feel while holding it. It has a good mAh rating and should be able to charge your phone 2 - 3 times before recharging it. No heating issues detected while testing. Cons only 1 USB port takes a lot of time for first time charge the cable coupled with it is very short approx. 18 cm and is suggested by ASUS to use only that cable Important Fact This product is really good and at a reasonable price. Some people say it is expensive as compared to other Chinese or bootleg power banks. The thing you got to understand is that this is ASUS not any cheap brand it is a big company, the cheap brands do not care about the damages their product could cause, whereas ASUS has made a point to test the product and make sure it won't damage your phone. Also companies like Sony and Samsung charge almost twice the price for a power bank of this mAh rating. So it you don't want your phone getting damaged goes for this one. Never buy cheap power banks just because it is cheap look into the product see if it assures the safety of your device.

The best part about this power bank is that, it chargers the phone very fast, its capacity is also good, like we can charge our phone 6-7 times by this power bank, the quality of this product is very good, its color and finishing is excellent, But the major drawback is it can take more than 8 hours to charge your power bank back. The only reason this has been voted up is due to the fact that it has 3 USB PORTS!

Took a fairly considerable amount time for it to be getting completely charged maybe because the power bank is of 13000 mAh capacities. When charged can easily recharge you phone at least 4 times or even more. Dual USB ports, fast charging compare to others. 5. Battery doesn’t get drained while ideal.

Looks: Looks very premium with a white glossy enamel finish. Will get scuffed easily though if not protected well. I carry it in an external hard disc case, which fits it perfectly.  It's got a kidney bean cross section that adds to the design appeal and it's very nice to hold. The end plates on either side have a mirror finish and look distinctly upmarket. See attached photos for size comparison with a Galaxy Note 3. Single button design with a blue ringed LED indicator adorns the top, along with company branding. In one word, beautiful.

Features: Single mico-USB for charging the powerbank. Requires overnight charging if the power bank is fully drained. Using a 2.1A charger gives best results. There are 4 LEDs ringed around the only button on the device and each represents 25% charge capacity. This is a good visual indicator of how much charge is left in the device, the LEDs turning off in sequence as charge drops. Remaining power level can be checked by clicking the button once when device is not in use; while charging, LED indicators stay on by default. Pressing and holding the button for around 3 seconds activates the LED torch at one end of the device, which provides excellent illumination, long-pressing again switched it off. On the other end of the device is a solitary 2.1A USB out port for charging your mobile device. The supplied white USB cable is of good capacity, short and stout high amperage cable easy to carry with the device and same cable can be used to charge the power bank along with a wall charger.

Performance: The device provides rapid, reliable charging and charges my phone at the same rate as my original Samsung 2 Amp charger. This is the best performing power bank I have used till date and would gladly recommend to anyone. It also comes with built it overcharging protection and circuitry to prevent overheating / fire hazard.

Cons: The one negative thing to say about the product is that it has only one USB charging slot. I feel that it should have had 2 USB outputs given the large charging capacity.

Summary: This is an excellent power bank for those with newer larger capacity phones like the 3200 mAh Note 3, tablets etc. Even for smaller capacity batteries, this means adequate power to charge multiple times or charge multiple devices. In-built LED torch is a valuable addition. However, you can charge only one device at a time. The pricing is extremely competitive and good value for money.

An impressive looking product came in an excellent pack and put to charge. There are four small green LED lights set in a column configuration on the right side of the two ports. This start twinkling in sequence when the power bank is being charged and when there is about 50% (am presuming) charged then only the last two lights twinkle and the first two remain constant. This is how we come to know how much charge it is carrying. Once completely charged all the four led lights light up and remain constant. The two ports are for charging your devices. The power bank came with a 1/2 meter or so charging chord with usb/micro usb on either side. For charging the power bank the micro usb side is inserted into a provided slot on the longer side and the other end has to go into a plug charger (this piece is not provided). No heating issues detected on the device other than the fact that it is quite a heavy product. Ideal for people who carry a bag fairly regularly, or if being used whilst connected to a device where both are stable (i.e. not ideal when you are walking & talking for e.g.). Overall I am quite satisfied.
In short, it does what it is supposed to do, and without any problem. Would like to mention a few things so that potential buyers are aware of it; (a) As per the user guide, the power bank cannot charge a device when it is being charged itself (b) As per the guide the power bank would take 7 hours to charge on a 2A adaptor, 10 hours on a 1A adaptor & 25 hours when charged from a 0.5A USB port. The manufacturer suggests using a 5V/2A adaptor for charging (adaptor is not included with the power bank) (c) Included in the package along with the power bank are a Micro USB Cable, cloth Travel pouch & user guide. (d) The power bank has a built in flashlight which might be useful in emergencies.

2 :: OnePlus 10000 mAh Power Bank





The most handsome looking power bank on the list, the power bank quality is very good & so is the quality of the packaging. They sure know how to package their products which also gives a very premium feel. Flipkart also packed it very carefully in a separate box. The power bank though does take a long time to charge itself. Though may be it is because I was doing it through my laptop or maybe it was the first time. The feature of just shaking the power to know residual charge is really amazing. Truly an all-rounder power bank with best in class built quality and ergonomics. Just go for it.

Battery efficiency – 87%

1 :: Xiaomi                                                          





Xiaomi's Power Bank is one of the best we've seen, and not just in a long time - ever. Oozing style with an elegant and highly portable aluminium-alloy design, the Xiaomi packs useful capacity and still represents extraordinary value
It’s a powerhouse that can charge pretty much everything that takes power from a USB port. Be it be the phones, tablets, cameras, or your drones… it has enough juice to power up each of them. It also charges the devices with USB Type-C charging ports.
The reasonable design makes it easy to carry compared to its competitors. Price is really competitive looking at other available options currently. This is absolutely the best in its game. Original Xiaomi power bank's link mentioned above! Enjoy folks :)

The HIGHEST EFFICIENCY RATE OF 89%!!

  4. A Power Bank does not need external power all the times to recharge the sets. Power Bank 10000 mAh are good enough to get the phones recharged till you reach back home or office. Modern power banks use a set of USB chargers through which they can recharge more than one device at one time.

  5. Hi everyone,I am so excited sharing my testimony with everyone here about how i saved my marriage and got my husband back after a divorce,you can also fix your broken relationship and marriage right now no matter how hopeless your situation seems. I am Natasha Hayes by name and I'm a happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{Unityspelltemple@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past{7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our marriage was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster Dr Unity. So, i will advice you out there, if you have any problem contact Dr Unity and i guarantee you that he will help you and you will be the next to share your testimony to every one in the world!!. Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or call him on: +2348072370762.

  12. My name is Anna,i am from South America . Its a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Genital Herpes cured two weeks ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr. Zack Balo, but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try Dr. Zack Balo, then i contacted him through his website: wiseindividualspell.webnode.com/, he assured me 100% that he will cure me from herpes, i pleaded with him to help me out. My treatment was a great success, he cured me just as he promised. he sent me his herbal medication and ask me to go for check up after two weeks of taking the herbal medication. i agreed with him i took this herbal medication and went for check up after two weeks later , to my greatest surprise my result was negative after the treatment, i am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have to wait for three weeks again to be very sure i was completely cure before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through Herpes HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Diabetes, Cancer, reach him through wiseindividualspell@gmail.com or call him +13203967742.
