Anker Powerbank has taken the Pakistani market by storm. It is the time of the year where a power bank is on the top of the Buying list or wish list. No matter where you are or what you do, a trusty power bank is an essential for keeping your devices away from the mains.
We review and test a lot of power banks and portable chargers, and while one might assume that there is not such a difference among them – you would be surprised. One does not only have to be wise about the capacity of a power bank or how many times it can charge your phone. Things to consider to really make a wise decision also should include, a number of devices that can be simultaneously charged and how quickly the power bank itself charges and how quickly it charges your phone.
Most power banks that you see on the Pakistani Market are basic, or probably add a torch light to it. These are made by companies you have never heard of and are sold cheap. These might function and thus look appealing to buy. But one must be careful to use these to charge your 50,000 Rs. plus device. You get what you pay for – it is as simple as that.
The Anker Powercore 10,000 mAh Quick Charge 3.0 in Pakistan tell a completely opposite story. To begin with, Anker is one of the best-known brands around the world especially in the United States of America. A simple Google search for the “best power bank” will amaze you that Anker makes the list on 90% of the reviews. With its 18 Month warranty in Pakistan, Anker Pakistan is not behind America in making Anker a leading accessories brand in Pakistan.
Anker Powercore 10,000 mAh Power bank: Price in Pakistan
Anker Powercore 10,000 mAh is retailing for Rs 5,000 in Islamabad at the moment, and to be honest it adds great value to your mobile accessories.
The Anker Powercore 10000 is actually an up gradation of an older model. The newer model distinguishes itself with a Blue output USB port on the outside. On the inside, it packs a lot more quality juice with Voltage Boost Technology, a 3.0 Quick charge technology and PowerIQ. With these three amazing technologies combined, your device will be charged at the fastest optimal speed.
Anker Powercore 10,000 mAh: Design
When it comes to the design the Anker Powercore 10000 mAh is quite simple. With its matt Black rectangular design, it is easy to grip or slide in your pocket. The design is enhanced with a sturdy plastic casing and round edges. On the power bank, you will find LED lights that will show the remaining power inside the charger or blink to show when it is charging. A single Micro USB input can be seen on the right side while a USB output can be seen on the other end.
Anker Powercore 10,000 mAh: Dimensions
The dimensions of the Powercore 10000 mAh is what got our attention. We expected a 10000 mAh power bank to be bigger than this Anker Powerbank in Pakistan. Anker claims the newer version is 27% slimmer than other 10,000 mAh chargers and we found it to be true when Anker power bank turned out to be better in size than Xiaomi 10000 power bank. The power bank is light too, clocking at just 198 grams – enough to make sure your pants don’t roll down when you put it in your pocket.
Anker Powercore 10,000 mAh: Charging
With the Qualcomm 3.0 support means that if you have a flagship mobile of 2016 or 2017, you will be able to get insanely fast speed when charging your phone – speed up to 4 times faster than a normal phone.
The output port works wonders with Non-Quick charge phones too – thanks to the fast output port of 2.4A.
Refilling the Powerbank does, however, take time. We clocked the time at around less than 10 hours and recorded that the cells have around 8900 mAh of usable power for charging your devices. ( Do not worry every power bank or cell in the world will show less usable power.) The refilling happens at 2A (10W) but without passthrough charging. This means you cannot charge the Anker power bank itself alongside using it to charge your device.
The best thing about the power bank is its auto on feature. Just plug and let it give your device a second life.
P.S The Powercore 10000 mAh comes with a mesh carry case and free Anker Micro USB cable.
