There are a lot of portable power stations on the market these days, but how do you know which one to buy? Before shopping, ensure you understand what makes a good power bank. Here are some things to consider:
• Battery life
The longer your battery lasts, the better. Look for a power bank that has at least 25 percent more capacity than what you need in your emergency kit. Some models have up to 50 percent more ability than others.
• Charging speed
You do not want to have to wait forever for your phone or tablet to charge when there is an emergency! A fast charger will only take about 2 hours to recharge this device fully.
The smaller this device is, the easier it will be for you to carry around with you anywhere! Make sure it fits comfortably in your pocket or purse.
