Power theory 1

Power bank 1 IMG_9559IMG_9553

When was the last time you were traveling and your phone or gadget died and had to wait till you either got home or asked someone for a charger before you could charge your phone or gadget? This has happened to me numerous times, and the most recent one is as early as January 2015. When an opportunity was presented to me to review this power bank I was more than up for it because I had always wanted one always borrowed my Boo’s power bank if he was not traveling which was rarely. In this review I bring it down into sections, what the powerbank is, how its used and if it’s worth recommending.

What is a Power Bank?

Well a power bank is a portable charger or power supply which can charge any USB supported devices (unless specified differently by manufacturer). Most Power banks are for smart phones, cameras and/or tablets like Ipads. The power bank is made from ultra high-density A+ Li-polymer battery cells and premium microchips. It has LED light battery indicators and intelligent circuit board to prevent overcharging

How is it used?

Before you can use the power bank it has to be charged preferably 100% before any use so get the best out of the product. I was sent a 1000 mAhs which took almost 3 hours to charge, once charged I used it to charge my 2 iphones and my HTC phone plus iPad 3 times before it run out of power. To use the power bank your device needs to have a USB cable which can be inserted into the power bank. The power theory power bank came with a 3-in-1 USB cable to charge my devices and it’s own USB cable to charge it but did not have the its own adapter this is something you need to have yourself. Also the power bank has two slots for inserting your USB cable, dependant on the device you can choose which output you want 2.1A or 2.5A

Specifications (provided on packaging)

It is a PT1000 model with recharging time of 7-8 hours and has a 1000 mAh capacity. It weighs 200g and is 132x82x14mm in size and has a cycling time of 500. Its very sleek and stylish too and love that I can carry it anywhere

Is it worth Recommending?

Compared to a few power banks I have seen from friends and family it is definitely worth recommending. I do love that since I have had it it’s lived up to its expectation but Boo did mention to me that the current keeps fluctuating and not always reaching 2.5A output. He also mentioned that at times it seems to be oversupplying meaning the mechanism does not seem to be detecting it fast enough when it goes above 2.5A output. I have not noticed any damage to my devices so maybe this was just when Boo was testing it.

Where can you purchase it?

You can visit the amazon store or go directly to their website Power Theory. When I got mine it was £19.95 but now it’s £23.95 and $19.99 on their website. They come in two colours white and black and also in two different types 1000mAh and 500mAh.

    This is the first time that I’ve heard of power bank, but it definitely sounds like a great product to me. My husband would be interested too for sure.

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:58 pm

      I am glad to have introduced you to it.

    This sounds like an awesome power bank indeed. I love how much you can charge with it on a full charge. This would make a great gift for some one on the road all the time. Thanks for shairng.

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:58 pm

      Absolutely, I was very impressed as well

  4. March 30, 2015 / 7:06 am

    I have been dying to own something like this for a long time now. My phone is always dying before my day is over and it’s so frustrating when I have a long way to go before I’m home. This would be perfect for me!

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:53 pm

      I know what you mean, before I get home most days my phone is dead

    Power banks like this is a must-have. With most people now are owners of more than one mobile device, a high-quality portable charger in our bag is a great investment.

    We could benefit from this! We have an iPad and two iPhones, so we always need a charger!

  7. March 30, 2015 / 4:31 am

    My husband was just saying that I needed to get one of these. I need to check this out

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:50 pm

      You so should lol

    I’ve got a similar powerpack that is a lifesaver on trips. Towards the end of its life my old phone would barely hold a charger at all so I got into the habit of keeping one of these on me at all times.

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:49 pm

      I think they are so handy

  9. March 30, 2015 / 1:24 am

    This is a very useful tool! Who does not need a charger nowadays, right? Thank you for sharing it, I will have to look into it 🙂

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:49 pm

      You’re most welcome and yes everyone needs one of these

    I have a similar charger and like that it doesn’t take as long to charge. I love it! I charges my phone three times over and never leave home without it.

  11. March 30, 2015 / 1:06 am

    I go through power so fast. I am definitely in need of a portable charger for our days at theme parks!

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:48 pm

      These are very handy especially for places you can charge easily

    We’ve been looking at different types of portable chargers so we can use them when we travel. I’ll have to show these to my husband.

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:48 pm

      You should it’s so worth it i think

  13. Angela C.
    March 29, 2015 / 9:54 pm

    I’d love to have all of these lol. This is a great product and I’ll try it soon.

    I would love to have one of these! I get pretty decent battery life on my phone but it would be so much easier for overnight charging when I’m charging my phone and tablet.

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:47 pm

      I know what you mean

  15. Kristen
    March 29, 2015 / 9:31 pm

    What a near product! I think I need to get one of these.

    March 29, 2015 / 3:43 pm

    For $20 this seems like a steal! This would be so great to travel with for “in case of emergencies” or extended airport waits… you know you can NEVER find an outlet at an airport! Thanks for the tip!

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:47 pm

      My thinking exactly, for me I travel quite a bit so this is awesome

  17. March 29, 2015 / 11:30 am

    I really need to invest in one of these. My battery dies so fast and sometimes I have no back up! Love how many options theres available now.

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:47 pm

      It’s amazing now what we have available to us

  18. March 29, 2015 / 10:50 am

    Things like this are so handy when you are out and about and it’s not too pricey either.

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:46 pm

      Exactly very handy and great price

  19. March 29, 2015 / 10:46 am

    I definitely need to get this. It would definitely come in handy!

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:46 pm

    Oh I love these types of things. My phone runs out of battery life so quickly, too. I love to have one of these in my purses just in case.

    • March 30, 2015 / 7:46 pm

      Check out the site and amazon, they are great price

  23. Kelly Hutchinson
    March 28, 2015 / 5:46 pm

    I really need a good power bank that will get my devices fully charged. I have one and it stinks like rotten eggs.

    • March 28, 2015 / 9:48 pm

      You should try this one out, it’s been good to me so far

  24. Ann Bacciaglia
    March 28, 2015 / 3:57 pm

    This would be perfect for my family. The kids are always needing to charge their phones when we are not home.

    • March 28, 2015 / 9:49 pm

      Hope you give it a try

  25. chubskulit
    March 28, 2015 / 3:48 pm

    • March 28, 2015 / 9:49 pm

    I have similar like this and I so love it and I get a lot of used when I travel. I don’t need to wait to my destination to charge my phone.

    • March 28, 2015 / 3:08 pm

      That’s what I love about this too, I don’t have to wait till I get home.

    March 27, 2015 / 11:30 pm

    I think a powerbank would be perfect for me and my husband. We are always dealing with something needing a charge.

    • March 28, 2015 / 6:37 am

      hahaha, I hope you get a chance to look at amazon or their website

  31. March 27, 2015 / 11:22 pm

    This would be so useful. I hate having to run to my car or my room because a phone is dying!

    • March 28, 2015 / 6:36 am

      oh I so know what you mean, this has changed that for me

  32. March 27, 2015 / 11:06 pm

    March 27, 2015 / 5:58 pm

    This is great! We are a house full of device users, and everyone’s always plugging into the wall when we go on a trip. With this we can use one outlet and be done with it.

    • March 27, 2015 / 6:29 pm

      That is what I am loving about power banks such great and handy items to have. We are a device infested household too.

    I hate when the phone dies while traveling. The airport walls are full of people hogging my plug-in too. 😉

    • March 27, 2015 / 6:01 pm

      Oh I so know what you mean, its even more annoying now that when traveling your phone has to be charged before you can board a plane.
