Crazy Dave's Ultimate Guide to Power Banks

Phones get faster every year and the more powerful they become, the more battery life they require. Same goes for tablets and other portable devices. We all want better phone battery life but until phone makers get their act together and start producing batteries that can keep everything going for longer, we have to rely on being able to charge them every so often.

Power Banks are often described as 'life-savers' because thanks to them we can send that text to our mums or email our work or share a photo with friends. Power banks come in many different shapes and forms with different battery packs, fuel banks and number of USB ports. But whatever the add-ons, they all do the same thing: CHARGE YOUR PHONE OR TABLET WITHOUT NEEDING A POWER OUTLET! Here is Crazy Dave's ultimate guide to choosing the right Power Bank for your needs.

1. BATTERY SIZE

Let's start by choosing the size of your power bank. This is not about slipping it into your pocket or purse it's about the power inside. The power of the power bank is usually given in milliamp-hour (mAh). Common sizes range from 2,000mAh to 10,000mAh - bigger the number, more recharges it gives.

We've used smartphones and tablets to compare battery sizes recharges but power banks also charge e-readers, cameras or Bluetooth handset- anything with USB!

Logo branding print methods for power banks

Spot colour printing or solid colour.

Spot printed power bank, white on textured black paint.

Spot printed power bank, white on textured black paint.

An ink is made up to the colour you require and it is applied to the body of the power bank. The method of applying the ink is often using offset litho which means the ink is applied to a metal plate, then transfered to a rubber roller which is rolled over the power bank.

That's the simplest and cheapest method for applying one standard colour from a stock range. If you would like more than one colour the process is repeated with a different coloured ink and it for spot colour printing to allow up to four colours.

In this example we see a single white solid ink printed onto the body of a cylindrical power bank that has been paint black with a texture paint. Simple but effective.

Pantone solid colour logo printing.

Spot colour solid printing can use Pantone colours to match your business logo. In this case your colour choice is made into an ink which is made up from Pantone inks and the solid colour print method is used.

Four colour print process (CMYK), process colours, 4/c process.

When tiny dots of cyan, magenta, yellow and black are combined next to each other the eye is fooled into seeing other colours.

By varying the percentage of each of those colours, thousands of colours can be produced and this method is suitable for reproducing photographs or photorealistic and sophisticated logos without the expense of more than four printing plates.

Pad printing or tampo printing

Pad printing is the method of applying inks to the body of the power bank. Sometimes the offset litho method does not work especially when the body of the power bank has a curved surface.

Pad printing overcomes this applying the spot colour or four colour process inks from a sponge pad that moves over the curved surface whilst keeping in contact.

Full colour digital printing

Full colour digital printing is a modern and versatile method of applying ink without transferring from an intermediate surface like a roller or plate. The colours are richer than with the more labourious CMYK Pad Printing and photorealistic images allow great detail for complex corporate logos.

Full colour digital printing is 4 Colour Digital Printing Process or CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) using ink jet technology plus UV curing (ultra violet light) that is so accurate that single droplets of different colour inks a tenth of a millimetre in diameter can be printed directly on top of another. Millions of colour shades can be printed in one process and the UV curing process fixes the ink so that there's no drying time and no need for a protective laminate.

A big advantage of digital printing is that it is easy to print on your power banks images that exactly match your other print media used throughout for your whole promotional campaign.

In the examples on the right the speckling effect is made striking by the textured silver metal of the power bank.

Laser engraving

A high powered laser melts the surface of the power bank in an extremely precise way that enables very fine details in logo and branding messages in small font sizes. For metal the logo can appear lighter than the metal or darker depending on whether the light is glancing off the metal. Laser engraving is also used on wood where it darkens the surface by localised burning.

The technology behind power banks


Logo Branded Chargers for your phone.

You know how dependent we are on mobile phones and portable devices? Imagine you are transfixed to something entertaining or crucial for your business and the battery runs out! "Has anyone got a Powerbank?" When your phone dies you are not hopelessly lost because the power bank comes to the rescue.

It won't be long before this becomes the most popular branded gift to receive. Since they can provide power by plugging into so many portable devices you know they will find a home and be used continuously. Your brand name and logo will seen.

The power bank is a rechargeable Lithium Ion or Lithium Polymer battery in a sealed case and they are rated in mAh (milliamp hours), just like the battery in your cellphone. Some come with LED torches and others are like lipstick cases.

The portable phone charger.

They make great portable chargers for all cell phones including the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6. These external battery phone chargers have a USB power connector and usually a mini USB output that you would connect using the USB charging cable supplied with your phone.

Travellers need power banks.

Did you see that item on the news about airport security wanting to check that mobile phones had enough charge in them otherwise they would confiscate them for security reasons? So now all travellers need an emergency phone charger!

So if you need to use your mobile phone before a flight you can boost its charge with a portable power bank to ensure you don't lose your phone.

What is mAh?

mAh is milliamp hours and is a measure of the amount of electrical charge that can be stored in a power bank.

  • milli means "one thousandth of".
  • A means Ampere and it is the unit for the amount of electrical current which is another way of saying the charge that flows per second. The charging current is controlled so that it flows at a rate that moves the charge efficiently, not too fast.
  • h means hour. A or mA is a rate of flow so to get the charge you have to consider the time it is allowed to flow for.

How many mAh for promotional power banks?

For corporate gifts and promotional power banks you are probably focussing on a lower price and a smaller capacity promotional power bank of 2200mAh or 2600mAh would be ideal. That should enable about 1 to 1.5 charges of an iPhone, depending on various conditions like temperature and model of the mobile phone.

We have a range of mAh ratings and the larger capacites are suitable for bigger devices like iPads and tablets.

Lithium Ion (li-ion) or Lithium Polymer (Li-Polymer)?

There is a common form of low cost Lithium Ion cell called a 18650 which is finds its way into power banks used as promotional items printed with a logo probably because, being commonly used for laptop batteries they are produced in large enough numbers to be available at a low price. That's why cylinder power banks are the cheapest.

The single cell usually has a charge capacity of 2200mAh which is fine as an emergency back up charger for mobile phones. This is a single cylindrical cell like a typical battery and is the kind you are likely to find in the lipstick power bank format. These cells can be combined to give power banks of higher ratings but in multiples of 2200mAh such as 4400mAh. Often a laptop battery will contain two of these and will store 4400mAh so that gives you an idea of the amount of power available.

The lithium polymer version is versatile because it can be made into many shapes and that makes them suitable for flat style power banks with similar dimensions to a mobile phone. However lithium polymer cells are more expensive than Lithium Ion.

Li-Polymer cells are more durable and hold their charge better than Lithium Ion so they are better as a corporate power banks to be issued to employees and staff on the move.

Charge indicators

Many models have led indicators that indicate the state of the power bank's charge. For example one colour indicates it contains an adequate amount of charge and red would mean it needs recharging. Whilst re-charging the power bank one colour would mean it is still charging and another indicates charging has finished and ready to go.
