We are today surrounded by many smart devices, many of which we carry around for our daily digital life. These can include a smartphone, a smartwatch, wireless earbuds, and so much. However, when you are short on battery life in the middle of the day and are nowhere close to a power outlet, what do you do?
Well, praying the juice in your device lasts a bit more longer till you get to the nearest power outlet, could work sometimes. Or, just get yourself a portable charger. Anker is a brand that makes some of the very best power banks on the market, and the newest device to come out of its assembly line is the PowerCore II 10000.
This one is a 10050mAh power bank, and on paper, the company claims it has the capability of charging a smartphone, thrice on a single charge. The overall design and build quality of the device is quite good.
The PowerCore II 10000 features a completely updated design with a textured grippy outer surface. It features a scratch and fingerprint-resistant design.
It also comes with a new clickable button alongside an eight-point battery status display.
On the side of the PowerCore II 10000 is where the USB Output port is and next to the USB port is where the Micro-USB input port is. In terms of weight, it is quite featherlight at 195 grams.
The Anker PowerCore II 10000 offers an 18-watt fast charging output and 18-watt fast charging input. This means that the PowerCore II 10000 will be able to charge most flagship smartphones from zero to 50% in about 30 minutes.
The PowerCore II 10000 comes packed with the company’s very own PowerIQ 2.0 technology, which adapts to your device’s unique charging protocol to deliver a faster charging experience.
The PowerCore II 10000 is not just about design and build quality. The performance is as good as what’s mentioned on paper. On a single charge, we were able to charge a Xiaomi Mi 9 almost thrice from 10% battery to 100%. For a price of AED 110, it’s a worthwhile investment that will serve you for a very long time, especially in situations when you run out power on your trusted daily life devices and do not have a wall unit to turn to.
