Item sent for consideration for review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Do you ever struggle when heading out to events, knowing your battery won’t hold its charge for very long. I’m the same. My phone is always running out of juice which is so frustrating – especially if you are out reviewing somewhere and trying to take loads of pictures and add to social media whilst there – I’ve been on multiple days out where my battery has died and I’ve had to use Steve’s phone to capture those special moments until I can get back to the car and charge it.
I’ve had a few portable chargers over the years but they’ve always been big and bulky – something I don’t really want to be carrying around. I was offered the chance to review a power bank from USB Makers, with the design of my choice to suit my blogging life.
I opted for ‘Eat, Sleep, Blog, Repeat‘. I was very impressed with the delicate design when it arrived. USB Makers provide promotional items and I must admit I was expecting the power bank to be quite loud. I was super impressed with the muted colours and the font – it really suits the background and I feel the whole design is very ‘me’.
The power bank is slimline and very light – much unlike any other power bank I have ever used. The power bank comes with the standard Samsung USB charger with the option of a 3-way multi connecter if required.
It is available with 2,500mAh and is a very sleek design. But enough about the design and the weight of it, how are it’s charging capabilities?
First of all it came pretty much fully charged which I was very impressed by. I let my phone die and then put it on charge using the power bank – it got to 100% within about an hour and a half which is about right for my phone without a fast charging cable. I then took it off charge and waited until it was down to around 30% before putting it on charge again. The power bank managed to last out until the phone was fully charged yet again – but then I needed to put it on charge.
I managed to get almost two full charges out of the power bank which for such a small device I was very happy with. I am always active on my phone so I can guarantee I used it even whilst charging so the power bank sometimes had its work cut out – charging whilst I was obviously using the battery – but it withstood my tests well.
Overall, I am very impressed with the power bank from USB Makers – it’s lovely to have something designed just how I like it, that isn’t massively big and bulky and that can just slip into my handbag or pocket. I definitely know where to head if I want some more promotional/personalised material.
