In today’s fast-paced, technologically reliant world, we take it for granted that we can communicate with friends and family at any time of day or night. Even when we are on the go, our phones allow us to message and call each other in an instant. Powerbanks offer that added peace of mind that you can always be reached or contact someone yourself when you need to.
That important phone call
We have become accustomed to such immediate responses that it can be frustrating when someone doesn’t reply or pick up their phone after a couple of hours. When your phone dies, you immediately start to wonder if anyone is desperately trying to contact you. What if someone close to you was in an accident or an employer was trying to contact you with a new opportunity? Being without a phone for a few hours can make a big difference.
Maximising personal safety is a very common reason for carrying a powerbank. Our phones are of course not only about receiving calls but about making them ourselves. Imagine getting a flat tire, or your car not starting, and needing help but having no way of contacting someone. What if you witnessed a crime, or suddenly felt unsafe in your surroundings? It would be horrible not to have a fully charged phone in these situations.
While it is always worth preparing for these worst case scenarios, the reality is that most of the time having your phone die is just annoying and inconvenient. When you want to show someone a funny Snapchat you received earlier, or are dying to look up IMDB and find out who that actor on TV is, a powerbank can be a lifesaver. Just like a regular phone charger, you can start using your phone again as soon as it is plugged in to your powerbank, rather than waiting an hour for it to charge. They’re small enough to fit in a handbag or even your back pocket, so you can charge your phone as you’re walking.
The more storage you have on your powerbank, the more convenient it is for you. A powerbank that you have to recharge after each use is still a benefit, but can be a hassle in itself. One that has many charges worth of battery is fantastic, because you ca keep it in your bag for when your phone battery dips, and then only plug it in every now and then. Every 2000 mAh will provide an iPhone with a single full charge. Check out our range of capacities, ranging up to the SuperBank at over 20,000 mAh, which can give you more than ten full charges.
Of course, a lot of the time people want to just top up their battery rather than do a full charge from 0 to 100%. This gives you the reassurance that you will have a decent amount of batter for the next several hours. Perhaps you’re heading out to a bar with friends, and notice that you’re on 40%. It might last but it might not. Don’t be that person trying to scab a charger, just plug it in to your powerbank and the problem is solved.
