Technology is always changing, and one of the hottest products to buy is power banks! Before you purchase some for your business, here are a few things to ask before deciding:

1. How much power do I need?

Whether you are wanting something for a simple phone charge, or something to power a laptop or tablet you’ll first need to figure out how much power you would like to have on hand. As the amount of storable power goes up, so does the price. To charge a phone, you typically need about 2,000 mAh and tablets and laptops need around 10,000 mAh or more.

2. What kind of material and style do I want?

Do you need something fun and colorful that will be easy for recipients to find? Or, a more corporate looking leather or metal cover? There are tons of styles and materials to choose from.

3. Are they safe?

There are so many places to buy power banks, and with recalls abound it’s important to make sure you know that the power banks you are buying are safe. You don’t want your product to over-heat or blow up right? Look for these markings on your power banks:

CE - Conformité Européenne FCC - Federal Communications Commission RoHS - Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive UL Mark



4. What safety features are there?

Short circuit protection is a big safety feature that you will want. You also want to make sure that the batteries will not over charge or over heat.

5. What is production time?

Production time can vary depending on the manufacturer. Your best bet is to call or email and let us know what your time frame is so we can help you find the right product!
