We have all been there before – your smartphone or tablet battery indicator is telling you it is time to charge the unit, but there is not an AC power outlet in sight. Maybe you forgot to charge the phone overnight or maybe you have been using applications and settings that have zapped the power quickly. That is what makes the appeal of a promotional power bank so strong. The portable bank provides power to your devices and prolongs the usage of your electronics for hours.
Now unlike a pen or coffee mug, this promotional product is a bit more advanced in that one size does not fit all. You could search and see quite a few different specifications of power banks and that might leave someone a bit confused as to the right power bank for their team. Actually, it is not that difficult at all if you follow these simple suggestions.
The Battery Size On Your Device
The basic consideration is the size of the battery on the devices you are going to charge. Battery sizes are measured in mAh and are used to calculate the total amount of power a battery can hold. The higher the mAh number the longer the amount of time a unit will be charged. We have listed a few of the more popular portable device mAh ratings below. We would also recommend visiting the manufacturers website for the most current information.
- Samsung Galaxy S4 – 2,600 mAh
- Motorola Droid Ultra – 2,130 mAh
- Nokia Lumia 1020 – 2,000 mAh
- Nokia Lumia 820 – 1,650 mAh
- HTC One – 2,300 mAh
- LG G2 – 3,000 mAh
- iPhone 4S – 1,432 mAh
- iPhone 5 – 1,440 mAh
Now that you are armed with this information, you know that the promotional power bank that you are looking to purchase should have at least the same mAh number as your device battery to ensure a full charge. You could have a power bank that has a lower mAh, but it will not provide a full charge of the smartphone.
As an example, if your were looking to purchase power banks for your sales team and they all used an iPhone 5, then you would need individual power banks with at least 1,440 mAh.
