Factors to consider while purchasing a power bank


If you are considering buying a power bank in Nigeria, here are  things you should have in mind.

Ampère Output

Besides the capacity of the power bank, the ampe range is also very important. The amperage (A) tells you how fast the power bank will charge your electronic devices. A normal power bank has an amperage between 1 and 3.5 A. The higher the amperage, the faster the power bank will charge your devices.

Price, Size and Brand

As we all know the price of something determines the quality except if you are staying in east of Nigeria, and be sure to check the brand of the powers bank you are buying.


Capacity, shown as milliamp hour (mAh), is a rough indication of the charging capabilities – the higher the number, the more power it can deliver to your device before the power bank also runs out of juice. Try to find a power bank that can completely recharge your smartphone at least twice before requiring a recharge, as this should keep you covered for one to two days at a time.

Power indicator

A Power Indicator is usually an overlooked feature. But let me tell you that it is one of the most important features. Power banks lose charge over time, and if you are not careful with the charge and the recharge cycles, you may often have to pick up a dead power bank. And if you don’t have much time in your hand for juicing it up, you may end up in a sticky situation.

Voltage output

When looking for a power bank, consider the voltage of utmost importance because, unlike other factors, this might pose a safety risk. The rule is quite straightforward: don’t buy a power bank with a voltage higher than your battery.
