Fake Powerbank



What else could be fake from China? Here you go, the fake powerbank. If you guys are not familiar, a powerbank actually works as an extra battery pack which could be use to re-charge your device on-the-go. Those heavy little boxy device are getting more and more popular nowadays as people just simply can't get their smartphone to last the entire day.



From the picture above, you would be able to see that the powerbank has a charging capacity of 24000mAh which is very very high and normally would require a very big enclosure. The iPhone 5 has a battery capacity of 1450mAh. A simple calculation would give you approximately 16 times of recharging possible with the 24000mAh powerbank.
Needless to say, the device above is actually a fake with the enclosure being packed with sands. That little cylinder next to the PCB board is the actual battery. From the looks of it, it'll probably be less than 2400mAh.

      If you need to store more water in a tank, you'll need a bigger tank.

  2. Thank you for the post. I am in the industry of power bank as corporate gifts. There are indeed many fake power bank available in the market. The battery inside can be OEM china made or original Samsung battery. Most of the power bank made with OEM battery do not have over charged circult protection IC. It is very dangerous and might cause explosion. Customers have to be careful about this.

  4. Several factors are important when choosing a power bank. One is portability: some of the power banks we review are small and light enough to slip into a pocket; others you’ll notice their presence even when slung in a bag. Pay particular attention to their weight and avoid bulky designs if this is a device you'll carry every day, rather than in certain situations only.Another factor is capacity. It’s important to note that a power bank will not deliver its full advertised capacity to your device – some of this energy is lost through heat generated and voltage conversion. latestone.com If a power bank manufacturer doesn’t expressly state otherwise, expect to achieve around 70 percent efficiency. A 10000mAh power bank might therefore deliver 7000mAh of power. Some of the best power banks offer around 90 percent efficiency. Check the specification of your phone or tablet’s battery to estimate how many full charges you can expect from this.

  7. 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.
