Promate Tips and Tricks
If you’re often out or on the road with no access to power sockets, you’ll need a powerbank. Especially in today’s world where most smartphones barely last a day. Promate shares some quick tips on how to choose the best powerbanks for your needs.
Well, it does. Your gadget’s battery size matters. According to Promate, you need at least one that has a the same capacity as your device. That way, you can double whatever usage you are currently getting.
The more the merrier
Most people carry more than one device nowadays. And if you’re one of them, its better to pick a powerbank with several charging ports. That way, you can charge more than one device at a time. Easi peasi.
Not all powerbanks are created equal. Its best to choose ones that have automatic voltage regulation to protect your devices from overcharging.
Quality over price
You will most often get what you pay for. And this applies to smartphones as well as powerbanks. That being said, its better to spend a bit more on reputable brands than saving a few pesos on something can easily break, or worse, on something that can damage your phone.
